    An exhilarating urban romantic fantasy saga

    Nightkeeper warrior Nate BlackHawk rejects the notion that he and his inexperienced fighting peer Alexis Gray are destined to be together although he admits to himself she stirs his rebellious blood especially when he sleeps; she knows he is the one even as he pretends to ignore her. Instead he rejoices in the recent victory the Nightkeepers gained when they prevented the demon Banol Kax from breaking through the barrier to their realm (see NIGHTKEEPERS).<BR/><BR/>However, King Striking-Jaguar begins to find evidence that an ancient enemy has arisen and poses a threat. He and others believed the evil Banol Kax lords of the underworld Xibalba were locked away from the earth twenty-four millennia ago, but they believe an effort to return has begun when an obviously powerful mage starts to acquire the seven sacred Mayan artifacts. To stop this malevolence from amassing more relics that will soon turn this deadly predator invincible and break the barrier keeping the evil Ribald horde away, the Nightkeepers must find the remaining statues. Nate and Alexis team up to do so and he can any longer ignore destiny¿s pairing.<BR/><BR/>This exhilarating urban romantic fantasy saga is constructed around modernizing Mayan mythology, to include but not limited to the doomsday prophecy. Nate is an intriguing protagonist who rejects his Nightkeeper bloodline that insists Alexis is his soulmate (some readers will believe: "Me thinks thou dost protest too Much!" ¿ Shakespeare) with his denial while she easily accepts their destiny. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action as the overarching Andersen mythology is wonderfully embellished with this engaging entry.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Keeps you guessing

    Love how you know its going to be romantic for a few certain people from the get go but the underlying reasons for the resistance is great! I feel like i have known these characters all my life! Flows beautifully with Nightkeepers but still gives twists and turns and heat that kept me coming back for more!

    I LOVE Nate and Alexis...

    This is my favorite "Keeper" book of the three that are out. I'm know that may change, but I really don't think it will. There's just soemthing about Nate that I love!! He's "the one" for me. And him and Alexis...Mmmmm. I love it when he's calling her Lexie, the secret nick-name he used with her when they were in bed together. Nate's tender, but still a hard-a**. And I like how he and Alexis spar with each other and continue to fight their growing attraction, only to succumb in the end. On another note, I thought the ending was cheesy and somewhat stupid. I like Nate's ultimate power, but Alexis' power was a bit disappointing. Also, there is still a lot of world-building going on in this book - and sometimes the historical and ritualistic significance is a bit complex and overwhelming. But overall, I look forward to the continuation of this series.

    Dawn Keepers

    Okay, I like the first book in this series well enough and Dawn Keepers was good...But it really dragged on and changed from character to character and it got a bit boring in some parts. I got really mad that the people who are supposed to save the world seemed incompetent and the winiki who were there from the begining know absolutely nothing when it comes to magic and all the secrets to how they are to become these Gods? Yet they no everything else about their charges family lives! Its sort of frustrating. But the story line itself is good, even though I don't like every character. I will get the 3rd book in the series

    Excellent Reading

    After reading the first book of this series I wasn't that thrilled but thought I would read the second of the series and was absolutely engrossed in the story This book had everything adventure, mystery, suspense & of course romance. I am looking forward to the next book in the series Sky Keepers.
