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. The Nightkeepers gain strength and knowledge through a skyroad to their gods. Prior to this book, Iago's group battled with the Nightkeepers which somehow closed the skyroad. Now both the Nightkeepers and Iago's group are searching for the lost library of their ancestors which will increase their fighting magic and might reopen the skyroad so they can communicate with the gods again.

Sasha's father knew where the lost library was. He was killed. Iago kidnaps Sasha because he thinks she knows where the library is. She doesn't. The Nightkeepers rescue her from Iago and hope to work with her to find the library.

Michael is a Nightkeeper who has an inner demon. When the demon comes forward, he has powerful killing abilities. Michael can usually keep the demon suppressed, but when Sasha is near, the demon becomes active. Michael and Sasha are drawn to each other, but Michael stays away from her because he fears his demon will be unleashed and hurt her.

REVIEWER'S OPINION (WITH MILD SPOILERS):
Most of the story is the Nightkeepers fighting Iago's group and trying to find the lost library, with a romance on the side. I would have liked a little more romantic development, where the couple learns about each other and develops a relationship through interaction. Their romance is almost anti-romance because of Michael's kiss and flee habit.

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.

A year ago, Sasha Ledbetter tried to find her father Ambrose Ledbetter, who disappeared in the South American jungle. She promised to give him the funeral he wanted, so if he is dead as people think he is, she is to find his body, and she knows where to look for it. But unfortunately, some lunatics find her, and keep her prisoner for over a year now, trying to make her tell where her father hid the secret library of the Nightkeepers. But she doesn't know it, and they don't want to believe that. So now they have decided to use her as a human sacrifice.
All this time, the Nightkeepers have been looking for her, unable to find the hiding place of the Xibalba cult. Now, at the last moment, Lucius has managed to subdue his demon long enough to contact them and tell them where they are, and what they plan to do to Sasha. The Nightkeepers want Sasha, as they suspect her father was one of them, and that means, she is as well. Their numbers are too small to battle evil over 3 years, and they need her. And of course her knowledge of her father and where he could have hidden the library. Michael Stone especially wants to rescue her. Ever since he saw her picture a few years ago, he knows she is his. But there is something dark and deadly inside of him, and he doesn't know if he can keep it contained much longer.

Chef Sasha Ledbetter grew up with tales of the Nightkeepers, a group of mystical warriors who are fighting the forces of evil in conjunction with the Mayan clock countdown. The tales came from his father, Ambrose, whom Sasha thought to be losing his mind. After one particularly brutal ritual with Ambrose several years past, she cut off all contact with him. Now she is in the rainforest, searching for him. But Sasha gets more than she bargained for when she is captured by evil forces, forces which hope she has the key to where Ambrose has hidden the library, which will help them further their quest for domination.

Michael Stone is a very complex man. As a member of the Nightkeepers he is battling the forces of evil. But Michael has a past that none of his fellow Nightkeepers know about. He fights daily with an unseen force that threatens to take hold of him, and turn him into something that he doesn't want. When he sees a photo of Sasha he is obsessed. When he helps his fellow Nightkeepers free her from her captors the spark between them is magical, and he knows he has to have her.

But Michael is afraid of what is inside him, and refuses to endanger Sasha with it. When Sasha finds out her father's stories are true, she's amazed. But even more secrets await her, ones that will show Sasha her destiny, and, hopefully, help her keep hold of Michael, the man that she loves.

Skykeepers is the third book in the Final Prophecy series by Jessica Andersen, and it packs a wallop. Ms. Anderson has penned a fantastic novel that draws the reader in and keeps them enthralled page after page. The world of the Mayan countdown clock is fascinating, and I loved the way Ms. Andersen portrayed it, giving the reader glimpses of a culture that has long been mysterious.
