According to Mayan doomsday prophecy, 12/21/12 marks the end of the world in a global cataclysm that can only be prevented by the Nightkeepers, magical warriors enlisted to fight the rise of the underworld demons. To fulfill the final prophecy the Nightkeepers must find their mates, but when Lucius and Jade are charged with rescuing the Mayan sun god, they try to ignore their growing attraction. Unless they can confront their own demons and accept that love isn't a weakness, even destiny might not be able to save them...

Publishers Weekly

In this introspective fourth Final Prophecy paranormal (after 2009's Skykeepers), Andersen ramps up the danger. Ex-therapist Jade saw too many bad relationships to believe in love, but the Nightkeepers, who stand between humankind and the apocalypse, need a magic-wielding prophet, and Jade's friend Lucius, the human who fulfilled the prophet's sacrifice, is unable to reach the magic on his own. Jade agrees to try using sex magic to open up his abilities, but when that fails, they realize they must commit to an emotional connection as well. The resulting tale mixes action and elements of Mayan myth—from a voyage to the underworld to a fantastic high-stakes ball game—with soul-searching, lust, and romance. Jade's inner journey is particularly engaging, and while the background makes more sense to returning fans, even new readers will find plenty to latch on to. (Apr.)
