Jessica Andersen - Nightkeepers

Striking Jaguar is one of the few survivors from a demon attack, where almost every adult died. Strike and his sister Anna were raised by their winikin protectors, so that both of them would turn out to be great Nightkeepers, warrior-priests who summon Mayan Grods and battle demons to protect their kind and earth. For the last couple of months Strike has visions of a young blond woman and he cannot put his fingers on the reason why.

Leah Daniels is a Miami-Dade detective who is investigating her brother’s death. All the evidence tells her that some cult group sacrifice her brother and now they are chasing her. When they finally capture her and wants to sacrificer her, the gorgeous stranger from her dreams appears and save her.

Together Strike and Leah will look for the answers they need to survive and save the world from evil And they are not alone because they are getting help from the other few surviving Nightkeepers and hopefully will prevent the first trigger for the apocalypse.

Nightkeepers by Jessica Andersen is the first novel in the Final Prophecy and I have to say it is a fabulous start. Miss Andersen created a world based on the Mayan doomsday prophecy that will end on December 21, 2012. I can say this novel is one of the few that really blew me off my feet, the moment I start reading.

The main-characters Strike and Leah are fabulous together. Strike is from the royal family and next one in line for the trown, but doesn’t want it. But when times runs out and he have to save his people and earth, he can no longer ignore his duty. He had some visions about a blond attractive woman and when his powers finally kicks in after a long time, he ends up saving her from a sacrifice to the wake the demons. Strike knows she doesn’t belong in his world, but cannot ignore the huge attraction between them.
Leah Daniels lost her parents and recently her brother in some strange cult sacrifice. And now those people want to sacrifice her in the same way. But help is just around the corner, when the gorgeous man from her dreams appears. From that moment her life is no longer her own, she’s now part of some prophecy that will predict the end of the world.

The secondary characters are great and intriguing. The other young nightkeepers have all unique paranormal gifts and powers. And the most important of all, they all believe in Strike and Leah and fight with them to prevent to prophecy to come true.

I really believe Jessica Andersen has written one hell of a novel with promisses for several more. The next novel will be Dawnkeepers and will be about one of the younger nightkeepers. I truly can say I’m looking forward to that one and find out more about the prophecy.

Jessica Andersen will be on my autobuy from now on.
