When Nightkeeper Dez Mendez goes off grid, PI Reese Montana is hired to track Dez down - Dez's presence for the next cardinal day battle is key to the Nightkeepers' success in staving off doomsday. When Reese catches up with Dez, he manages to convince her to hold off on turning him in, and while Reese agrees to help Dez search for artifacts he claims will aid the Nightkeepers in the upcoming conflict, Reese suspects that Dez may just be pursuing his own agenda.

The pairing of former convict/gang
Ten years ago, she knew she loved him and she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. Then everything went to hell. Literally. And they drifted apart. He toward perdition as the leader of a street gang, she toward salvation as a bounty-hunter.
Three years ago she put him in jail to save his life and he hated her for it.
One year ago she learned he was dead. Killed by a rival street gang.

Now, she learns he’s alive. A changed man. A good man. He’s been helping the Nightkeepers, a rac

4.5...Action, suspense, romance, battles, blood, evil villain, kick-butt H/h, awesome world-building...lots of good stuff!

Jessica Andersen incorporates Mayan and other Native American lore into this series. The protagonists' goal is to prevent the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy - the end of days - from occurring. The Nightkeepers use their magic, strengthened by their fated mates, to fight the Mayan underworld's gods.

Having read book 1, which left me unimpressed, I was familiar with the world-buildin
Another great book in Nightkeepers series. I really loved this instalment. Great characters - Dez and Reese were a wonderful couple and their history was very interesting as well as defying. There were some blow-mind developments. Almost reaching the end of this series, Jessica Andersen still manages to keep the readers holding their breath. A fast pacing and well structured plot line. A great read.
Storm Kissed
4.5 Stars

The second of the Triad Mages, Snake (Dez) Mendez, a former gang leader and convicted criminal, has carved a place for himself with the Nightkeepers. But now, a threat from his past has resurfaced and places everything he has worked for in jeopardy. Reese Montana, the bounty hunter responsible for Dez’s original incarceration is recruited by the Nightkeepers to locate Dez after he disappears, only to discover that the real trouble has only just begun and the threat to Dez ma

Okay I love the world Andersen has created, though the 2012 ending of the world is kind of getting annoying in the real world... but that's another story. The story centers around the snake magi Dez Martinez and his childhood love, now hunter Reese Montana. The two had a hard childhood and leaned on each other to get through a horrible neighborhood; until Dez unknowingly takes a statuette from his winikin and it turns him into one of the monsters

I loved this book! As I have said before, this series started out slow for me but has picked up speed. Every book she puts out on this one just gets better and better! The end is mind blowing if you have been following the series and is totally got me excited about the next book! Magic Unleashed will be out soon, and I will definitely be reading that one also! If you are even a bit interested in Mayan lore you will love this series.
This is a series I have been reading on/off over the last few years. I finally have got to the stage where I want to finish something and so I grabbed the remaining three books in this series from the library to read (this is the first of the three and is book 6 in the series). It is a small achievement to finish a series I know, but I will take what I can get in a life that feels I have unfinished things taunting me everywhere I look :-)

The premise of these books is the 2012 doomsday prophecy a

**Note this review contains spoilers for earlier books in the Nightkeepers series***

This book is my new favorite out of the Nightkeepers series. It definitely marks a much needed turning point in the ongoing saga of the war of the magi against the 2012 doomsday. This volume picks up a year after the effects of the triad spell rocked the surviving magi. Although he was brought back into the Nightkeeper fold by becoming a triad mage, resident bad boy Snake Mendez (Dez) has gone off on a mysterious

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from the Nightkeeper that has remained, thus far, largely in the shadows. There was little excitement to learn about the formerly incarcerated Snake "Dez" Mendez. Up until now, all we really heard was that he was big, bad, and spent a lot of time in prison. We saw him captured by a bounty hunter in the first book, but since then, he has been talked about, but not brought into the Nightkeeper world. So what was there to look forward to?

Upon completing Storm Kissed, I have to say this (the Final Prophecy) is such a great series. It is Urban Fantasy at its best, where Jessica Andersen uses Mayan history/mythology, using Gods, Legends, Demons, End of World date and creates our Nightkeepers to try and save the world. She does this using modern day, and it works so very well. Andersen has also done a wonderful job in each book bringing together all the couples (destined mates), and yet keeping all of the characters in the storyline

Jessica Andersen has been writing the dynamic and engaging Nightkeepers series for years so jumping right in with Storm Kissed (number six in the series) is not the way to go. I’ve been enjoying this series from the beginning but with all of the reoccurring characters and ongoing story line, this is not the book to start with. If you’ve been enjoying this series since the beginning like me, this was another great addition to the Nightkeepers stories. Dez has been the community’s bad boy for so l ...more

Snake (Dez) Mendez has not had a charmed life, he’s survived the massacre at Skywatch that took not only his family but most of the Nightkeepers, an ancient race who’s duty it is to protect the earth and prevent the apocalypse the end date will precipitate if the beings of the underworld have their way. He’s battled not only being orphaned but also being stuck with a winikin ( a protector and servants of each of the particular noble blood lines of Nightkeepers) who’s lost his mind, so Dez does t ...more

Wow! WoW! WOW!! I have not read any of this series...I picked this one up on a total whim and it is book 6 in this series. FANTASTIC BOOK and I would guess that the whole series is this reminiscent of JR Ward Brotherhood series, but these guys are Mages trying to save the world from the destruction that is predicted to happen in 2012. WoW! I cannot tell you how good this book's a fantastic world that Jessica Andersen has created. Now I need to go find the previous 5 books...IM ...more

I have been curious about Mendez since the very first book, when he was hauled to prison and Strike gave up on him. Now a year has passed, and Dez is part of the team. He is big and strong, and he still keeps secrets from his fellow warriors. So when he goes after his mad Winikin when he has send Dez a message, he doesn’t tell the others about it. Who think they have no other choice but to send the bounty hunter who apprehended him before after him. Not knowing that Reese and Dez have a shared p ...more

Storm Kissed is a highly erotic tale that magic lures readers deeper into the story.

Reese Montana met the love of her life years ago in the form of bad boy, Dez. Their love affair was intense and electric. It all ended when Reese, put Dez in jail, trying to protect him while they found the gangbangers who were out to get him. Years later, she learns that he is alive and working with the Nightkeepers, a group of humans that hold magic powers, sworn to protect mankind from the 2012 Mayan doomsday

Wow. That's all I can really say with this book. It totally changed the play for the next books in my opinion. I don't like to give anything away so I'll be very cryptic here. But I wonder how the changes will truly play out- no one will feel bitter? The changes are going to be all smooth and fine?

I really did like Dez- although his eating choices sure sounded strange! Not so sure if I liked Reese as much as I liked Dez. Her constantly waffling between trusting and not trusting made me want to r

Loved that Reese and Dez has past history makes the twist turns and on again off again feelings and fears between the believeable. All happening while times grows ever shorter for the nightkeepers and their bid to save the world and out wit their enemies. The author has managed to keep me turnig pages book after book I read these one right after the other to good to put down.

I wasn't too sure what to expect from this book, Dez wasn't someone who was shown in a good light at all, a former gangbanger and an ex-con, just how would he fit in with the Nightkeepers. As much as this book was about the fight going on in the now, it was also about the past that Dez and Reese had.

You could tell that Dez was hiding things from the start, you just weren't sure what it was. I thought it was more about his past and yes it was, but it was so much more and not anything I expected.

Storm Kissed was an exciting ride filled with twists and turns not expected.

Reading through the struggles the NightKeepers face in this installment was like riding a roller coaster with your eyes closed and not knowing what the next turn might bring. Dez and Reese are quite a couple. And the unknown of the Triad magic and its effect on Anna was a mystery worth reading.

Strike fans are also in for a ride in this installment. Fasten your seatbelts because its bumpy.

Holy Sh** Batman! Way to come back from two slightly less stellar books! Dez was great (wasn't sure I'd like him), the story REALLY moved forward, things changed significantly and now I'm excited about the series again! Can hardly wait for Sven's book. If you haven't started this series and can deal with the end date prophecy (my book club won't read these because there are people who won't touch these until after 12/21/12 due to superstitions) then I strongly recommend the series. It deals more ...more

Loving this series, the author knows how to be unpredictable with the storyline. The books are not stand alone, and need to be read in order.

Well what can I say...this book was fan-freaking-tastic!! From beginning to end...and I loved the way JA provided backstory to Reese and Dez's story. I thought he was going to be a completely different character when he was first introduced. I really like what JA did with his character and, in the end, he becomes the new King of the Nightkeepers. :-) The ending was the best part with the whole proposal though...made me go, AWWWWWWWWW!

Book six of The Nightkeepers (Final Prophecy) series only one year out from the Mayan end of days prophecy (21 December, 2012) where if the Nightkeepers don't get their act together demons from the Underworld dimension of Xibalba will over run and take over the Earth. This is a series with a lot of world building and a storyline which can be a little formulaic but Andersen has kept the series fresh with a major twist at the end of this instalment.

Only two more books to go, Magic Unchained (Sven

Excellent series and plot to entertain each and every time. With each series book it leads you into the next in line almost seamlessly. A carry forward story line. Never thought reading of the prophesied end time would be so riveting. The power of the Nightkeepers in transition and otherwise shows their willingness NOT to take everything at face value. Also, the idea of interpreting these prophesies gives new meaning to "drive me crazy" overall. The characters remain fresh in your mind from prio ...more

I enjoyed this recent addition to the Nightkeepers story. I feel like I missed quite a bit of Dez's transformation/time between the last book and this one. Ms. Andersen left out a leap in character and story development, and I feel like there should have been some sort of time bridge for it. I read a short story in an anthology, but it was very independent of the events at Skywatch. In any event, it's a good read and a very interesting turn of events for the entire storyline.
