Recommends it for: fans of PNR with complex characters and great storylines flavored with mythology
The general consensus around here is that this is the best book in the series (so far). And I heartily and readily agree. It will be tough to top this one, but I’m sure Ms. Andersen will try (and I hope she’ll succeed).

This story holds the gist of the entire series, the quest of the Nighkeepers – it’s about the ultimate battle between good and evil. And while the series concentrates on the "outside" battle, this story is all about the inner battle – the battle between good and bad inside Michael

Hard to read with complicated rules about how and when the magic works and how to solve problems.

STORY BRIEF:
This is the third book in the Final Prophecy series. It is set three years before doomsday. At that time the lords of the underworld (demons) (Banol Kax) will pierce the barrier and take control of the earth. The Nightkeepers are humans with magic powers who are sworn to protect mankind from the Banol Kax. Iago leads a group of enemy Nightkeepers who court the powers of the underworld. Th

Wow - mind-fuck. Another great book this was. I'm awed by Andersen's talent. One of the finest series I've had the opportunity to read, that's for sure.

***

A primeira coisa que não gostei no raio do livro é o facto de a ligação dos Nightkeepers com os Gods, já não existir, pelo menos até este ponto. A chatice é que tinha ficado convencida que esse pormenor não tinha ficado completamente explícito e bem explicadinho - que é como eu gosto das coisas - no livro anterior, portanto tive a sensação de

Continuum
Skykeepers was a considerable improvement compared to the previous stories. I wasn't throwing the book straight into the wall out of frustration or boredom. Still, it was too complicated at times, illogical at others. And sometimes simply felt as a piece of homework on Mayan or Aztec civilization rather than an engaging story to pull you in.

I did like the leads better than the ones from previous books, though the reasoning of their fighting and making up didn't ring true in my heart.

Sky Keepers is the third book in the Jessica Andersen's incredible Final Prophecy Series. In this book readers really get to Michael Stone, who was a secondary character in the first two books. Michael has a dark secret that has skewed his magical abilities toward the underworld. As a way to redeem himself he sets out to save Sasha Ledbetter, the daughter of a renowned Mayanist who died the previous year.

Sasha, a chef, spent her entire life hearing about the ancient group of warriors known as th

I've come to the conclusion that I will most likely be finishing the series. Am I going to be happy about it? Likely not.

Jessica Andersen has fallen into my Christine Feehan category. Not really that good, not really that bad, moments that make my eyes hurt from the rolling, but obviously the pages are laced with heroin and force me to keep coming back.

This is the third book in the series and my favourite. I pulled it out for a bit of comfort reading while I finish up another project. It hits so many of my personal fav checklist:

- lovely, lethal brooding hero (Michael): tick!
- unusual magic system (Mayan): tick!
- vivid, intense romance: tick! tick! tick!
- kick-ass heroine (Sasha): tick!
- part of an ongoing series: tick!

I don't know what happened with this book; I found all the right things - interesting concept, interesting plot, etc. The characters did and said all the right things but I just didn't like either of them, I guess. I felt absolutely no connection to any of them this time.

Michael was sufficiently tortured and twisted to engage my Dangerous Hero Addiction gene but I also kept wanting him to say something about The Other(yes I know he was afraid and programmed not to talk about it). But I really di

"The series gets better and better! Not to be missed!"

With each installment, Jessica Andersen ramps up the action and excitement in a thrilling ride that takes the reader on unexpected turns! In Dawnkeepers, we have--oh horrors!--Rabbit killing the three-question nahwal and the loss of the skyroad and thus, the Nightkeepers' communication with the gods. We see things getting bleaker and bleaker for the Nightkeepers as their powers waned. How then are they going to save the world from the end tim

I finished Skykeepers late last night. This is book three of Jessica Andersen’s the Final Prophecy. Amazingly, Andersen keeps things fresh, and exciting and you are captivated all the way through. I loved this book, and really enjoyed Sasha and Michael. This surprised me because Michael, though in all the books so far, was quiet and had small role in the first two.

Sasha, unseen but mentioned in the first two books, turned out to be a great addition to the Nightkeepers team. I loved how she turns

The Short Review: I’ve been on board with Jessica Andersen’s The Final Prophecy series from book one and I’m still on board. It’s an intriguing, inventive, and imaginative look at a group of people who are charged with saving the world from destruction on 12/12/2012. Their quest is not an easy one and Ms. Andersen’s thoroughly researched books not only give you a look into the Mayan culture, but she wraps it inside an action packed paranormal romance that is well worth reading.

This is book 3 in this 8 part series centered around the Mayan 2012 "doomsday" prediction. Each book focuses on a different pairing of nightkeepers and the battles to hold evil at bay and save the world (given it is 2013, I guess they won!).

This has actually been my favourite book in the series to date. The lore has been toned down (which was SO overdone in the previous books). However, it is still confusing and illogical in parts and still contains lots (and lots) of May

My Review:
OMG, this book broke my heart- specifically, Michael broke my heart. After going black ops with the FBI, where they created a psychotic "Other" within him, Michael spends most days trying to maintain control of his mind and life. The "Other" is a sociopathic assassin that lives within him. The FBI has secured that part of his personality within his brain, but when the NightKeepers magic kicked in, the walls within Michael's mind

I have to admit, reading this book now the dreaded date has come and gone with nothing major happening, it takes away a bit of the suspense. But I just think to myself, the Nightkeepers have obviously succeeded in their goals, and now I want to find out what they have done to make it so. And there is something about those books, that keeps me thinking about it, long after I have finished them.

This is the continuing story regarding the Mayan doomsday prophecy. The remaining Nightkeepers have the odds stacked against them. There are a limited number of Nightkeepers left. Most are still developing their magic powers. The Nightkeepers need to find a missing woman who might be the key in finding the ancient library that could provide them with the knowledge they need to fight their enemies and with each day that p

Sky Keepers is the story of one of the more mysterious of the Nightkeeper mages - Michael. Up until now, he has largely kept to himself. But no one has known why. They are all betting on it behind his back, assuming he is either running from the mob or is a dead beat dad, but no one knows him well enough to ask him about his past in the human world.

When the Nightkeepers realize that it is necessary to find and save Sasha Ledbetter, Michael comes across a picture of the trained chef, and his worl

I loved the entire series actually checked them out of the local library and read them all in a two week period in Feburary 2014. They would have been a more exciting read if I had gotten them before Dec 2012. However the suspense as to whether they would be able to keep the world feom ending with only a few warriors and less information than their enemies kept me turning the pages.

I have to read more of this author. She has a flare for the supernatural and does a wonderful job describing the magic. There is love and loss and prophecy. The NightKeepers are trying to prevent the end of the world. The spells often require a blood sacrifice to boost or initiate them but not always. Sometimes love is the greatest boost.

Up to now Michael always seemed to be in the background, so I was interesting to see how he would stand up to the battle. I wasn't sure what was going on with his split personality and didn't think it worked out, but when we found out why I felt like he got the shaft in so many ways. His winkin was hiding just as much as he was. Then when Michael gets his directive I wanted to scream. I didn't want him to do it, but if he didn't that wasn't good either.

This is book three in the Final Prophecy series and is an epic read. This series has intricate world building and an unfamiliar mythology which made the first couple of instalments a slower read, but it all comes together in this book.

The Nightkeeper series is really holding my interest and Ms. Andersen did not dissapoint with Sky Keepers. I was swept away in the character development of Michael. His story is amazing, the struggles he has been through. And then to be shocked to find out that Sasha is a missing royal sister who will play a big role in the end days. The story was AWESOME.

So I'm still really loving this series! The only reason it wasn't a five star for me was because it didn't suck me in like the previous two did - which really isn't a fault of the book, I was just busy this week with other things and didn't have time to read that much. Bonus that the romance seemed to be more thoroughly integrated (or at least more prominent) into the story line this time 'round instead of just being thrown in as needed. The whole 'love magic will save us all' is getting a bit c ...more
