Dawn Keepers

This is the second book in the Final Prophecy series by Jessica Andersen and Alexis and Nate's story.

Book Blurb:

The countdown to the end of days has begun - and Only the Nightkeepers can stop the annihilation of all mankind...

Though a Nightkeeper, Nate Blackhawk refuses to allow others to control his fate. The gods have even tried to influence his love life, sending him visions of Alexis Gray, a sleek blonde who is everything he's ever wanted in a woman.

The two warriors can't deny their attraction. But a frightening vision leads Nate to distance himself in spite of the intense passion he feels. Thrown together once more, they must reassemble seven Mayan artifacts that hold the key to preventing the end of the world.

I enjoyed this book more than the first one - Night Keepers. Not that Night Keepers was bad - just that with any first book in a new series everything has to be set up - with this one - the story was the main focus. And what a story. Ms. Andersen has really done her research on Mayan history and she is a great story teller.

I'm not much for 'over kill' in a book . I don't like for everything to be pointed out to me - and I really dislike when an author is overly descriptive - ie: a whole paragraph on what a character is wearing. That being said - this book did get a bit wordy in places - but not the point of distraction.

I look forward to the next installment. :)

I give this book and the series so far 4 out of 5 stars. :)

Hey Michelle,

I have this series in my TBR pile but I haven't been motivated to pick them up. Now, after reading your thoughts though, I think I'm going to move them up in the queue. Thanks!
