But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature - the Night Demon - that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her s

Gretchen Finch is an archaeologist. She is working in the remote jungles of the Yucatan with Lukas Smith. You’d think the jungle would be hot but being in close courters with Lukas is making Gretchen’s situation smoldering.

Both Gretchen and Lukas are trying to unlock a series of ancient glyphs, which reference the Night Walkers and the Night Demon. Little does Gretchen know that Lukas is a Night Walker hiding his immortality and darker side from the world.

Something unleashes the Night Demon, now

Lukas Smith has been immortal for hundreds of years and he is now searching a way to end his life. Long ago he became a Night Walker and he doesn’t know why or how. All he knows is he must drink blood, he can shift into an owl and he can’t be in the sunlight. Other than his maker, he has yet to meet another person like him. But now deep in the ruins of the Yucatan rainforest, he thinks he is close to deciphering ancient glyphs that may give him answers. Under the guise of working for a universit ...more
A definite Must read!!

OMG! What an enthralling story... I was rivited to my seat and could not put it down. The characters are so beautifully portrayed, full of emotions, love, anger, betrayal, and so many more.

The world is so breath taking as you travel from the Yucatan to San Diego, at times by unconventional means. Lukas is HAWT DAYUM! Calisto and Kate and Kane and Rita are back. We are also introduced to more characters.

Deep in the hot and humid Yucatan rain forest, archeologists Lukas Smith and Gretchen Finch have been attempting to decipher the glyphs on an ancient Mayan altar. For Lukas, this is personal. Hundreds of years ago he was accidentally made into an immortal Night Walker and he can no longer live with the regrets of his past, hoping to uncover a way to end the lonely existence he abhors. Yet, after living and working in such close quarters, both Lukas and Gretchen shield a growing attraction to eac ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone
I loved the that there is archeology in this and I love that a lot of it is in the jungle! I like how this series is so different from other authors. The Night walkers are a unique twist and sexy as all get out. I am not into romance much but this series makes me forget about that!! I love it!!!! Keep on writing Lisa cause I need more!!!
This was my first experience with Lisa Kessler's work, and I was most definitely impressed! Since I haven't read the previous books in this series, I had no idea what to expect, so the genius behind Kessler's supernatural creatures was all new to me. With a beautifully crafted world that combines ancient Mayan lore, demons, and vampire-like creatures of the night, this story is entirely unique, terrifying, and captivating all at once!

All right everyone, last night I finished Night Demon by Lisa Kessler. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when I first started the story for a couple of reasons. The first reason is it's a book two in a series. I know jumping into a middle of the series especially with a paranormal book can be trouble. However, I didn't feel that way. Granted it might have been beneficial to get the first book and novella of the story in too, but at the same time, I felt
Oh my goodness! OH MY GOODNESS!!! This book was SO GOOD!!! I feel like I waited forever to finally read it and I can say now that the wait was very much worth it!

While I enjoyed Night Walker and Night Thief quite a lot, Night Demon is a whole different story. I got totally sucked into the Night Walker world, I couldn't put it down! This is a dark and eerie story about ancient immortal gods and a demon that once ended an entire race and now these Night Walkers are trying to stop it from happening

I am so hooked on these Night Walkers and this book did not disappoint!! With this story we get to meet Lukas and Gretchen but also get to see Calisto and Kate from Night Walker and Kane and Rita from Night Thief again, which for me just makes it so much more satisfying. The story line will grab you and keep you on the edge of your seat right up to the very end of the book, and if you are like me you will not be able to put it down until you have finished!

I'm just thinking this author is not for me. I can't put my finger on it. There is nothing wrong with the writing or the storyline, but I just don't connect emotionally with it or the characters. I ended up skimming the last 3rd or so. I don't dislike the H/h...they're fine, they just didn't hold my attention. I put this book down a couple of times and read other books before coming back to it.

Now though my feelings about this book were mostly benign, there was one instance were I got pissed. T

Gretchen Finch's life changed when she became a research assistant for Lukas 'Smith', an unfortunate human turned Night Walker. After spending time in the Yucatan jungles helping him translate Mayan glyphs she realizes that she's more than a little fond of him, but he's not feeling the same way about her. Determined to continue her studies, she goes back to the altar sight and feels the pure evil that's about to be released.

I learned more about the Mayans in this book than I ever did in school.

There were times in this book that I was just a little lost. There is so much information and so many characters that at times I seemed to get it all mixed up. At times I even got the characters mixed up. I loved all the info that was in this book and at times I could really believe it. I asked myself could this really be

I really enjoyed Lisa's first book in the Night series, Night Walker, and that enjoyment continued by far with the second book, Night Demon. As I was reading, I was struck by how much Lisa's writing reminds me of Anne Rice. I absolutely loved how she incorporated Mayan history and legend in the book; something that Rice does frequently in her novels, mingling bits of history and legend in all of her books. I also felt like I had more of a connection with Lukas and Gretchen. I'm not sure why, but ...more

Deep in the Yucatan jungle Lukas Smith and Gretchen Finch are working hard at translating a series of ancient Mayan glyphs they have found on an altar.

Lukas shouldn't exist, his transition into a Night Walker was an accidental mistake during an encounter with Calisto (whose story we read about in Night Walker) and he has been searching for ways to end his immortal life. He has kept his true identity from Gretchen, but as the months pass he is finding it hard to admit, especially to himself, his

I received this book for this blog tour.

I was very excited to get to read book 1 and 2 of this series. I really enjoyed book 1 and couldn't wait to jump into book 2. Now I didn't realize, until I was half way through this book, that there is another book to this series. It is Book 1.5. I didn't feel I missed anything with skipping but had I known, I would have read it as well.

Night Demon is a well-crafted, fast-paced paranormal romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Lisa Kessler once again demonstrates her talent for words as she weaves her tale of paranormal romance and meshes it with the ancient Mayan realm. She takes her vision of night walkers, vampires with shape shifting capabilities, and mixes in ancient deities and demons, to make this adventure riveting.

Night Demon by Lisa Kessler

First if you have not read Night Walker & Night Thief please read first.

Lisa has out done herself in this story. It grips you from the beginning. This story has: Adventure, romance, trust and betrayal.
I could not put it down until I finished it.

We learn how the Night Walkers became and how the first fought the Demon Camalotz.

This is the story of Lukas & Gretchen. Who are in the Yucatan Jungle researching Night Walkers. Gretchen does not know yet who & what
OMG! I am soooo hooked on Lisa's Night Walkers. I want, want, want one of my own! LOL!

Lukas has led a tortured existence as a Night Walker, a "life" he did not choose. He believes he may finally be on the right track to finding a way to commit suicide - something he has unsuccessfully tried many times - as the Mayan glyphs around a sacrificial altar deep in the jungle seem to describe a Mayan rite in which a Night Walker dies.

Gretchen is an archaelogist who has been working thru her University
