The pairing of former convict/gang leader Dez and former bounty hunter Reese is a great one. Both of the leads share a connection and a history and the bad boy hero Dez keeps Reese guessing whether he'll finally 'go good', but makes sure to put any doubt Reese has to rest when it comes to just how much Dez still wants her. I also really liked the fact that in a series about prophecies, it is still possible for the leads make their own destiny.
Icing on the romance is that Storm Kissed brings about some surprising changes for the Nightkeepers gang. I liked the pairing and the twist so much that Storm Kissed is now my favorite book in Andersen's Nightkeepers series of paranormal romances centered around a group of warrior mages trying to save the world from the Mayan end of days prophecy. It also helped that this time Andersen's extensive research and amazing world building (and recap for new fans) is woven far more subtly into the story than some the straight info dumps in earlier books.
While not too many of the supporting characters manage to make it very far out of the background - this really is Dez and Reeses' story - it still was fun to see them even at a distance.Read more ›
I can't wait for the next one.
Reese is not sure what to make of the crowd of people she just walked into, but she senses danger, and it takes some persuasion from Strike to accept the job. She thought Dez was dead, killed by some gangmembers years ago. But he is alive, and a Nightwalker? Those stories he used to tell her are real? Reese likes to be part of something bigger, to make a difference in the world, and what better way than to help the Nightkeepers? Reese is good at her job of hunting and finding people, and she has little effort following the trail Dez left. And when she finds him, she has to choose between trusting and believing him, or taking him back to the Nightwalkers. But he has changed so much, he is so much the men she fell in love with all those years ago, and not the bad one he became after his Winikin forced him in that last ritual, leaving him with an evil avatar bound to him. Being part of the Nightwalkers has been good for him as well.
Being the last of the Snake clan, or so he believes, Dez is the only one who can stop his Winikin from finding all the 5 artifacts needed to make a great and dangerous weapon. It is meant to make a Snake the next King, and Dez has no ambition for that job. He will not betray Strike.
Things are not going well for the Nightwalkers.Read more ›
Having read book 1, which left me unimpressed, I was familiar with the world-building/set-up. A friend convinced me to give the Nightkeeper series a second try and recommended Storm Kissed. I'm was thoroughly impressed with the story-telling this time! It's fast-paced, with loads of action. The romance is convincing, using two kids who bonded while living in a gang-filled barrio then separated by unusual circumstances. (Mendez became a crime lord, went to prison, and reformed. Reese was an informant turned bounty hunter.) Good stuff!
Magic Unchained, the story of Sven (Nightkeeper) and Cara (winnikin), is the next book. I'm going to read it, along with book 8 (Rabbit & Myrinne, also Anna's HEA), the series finale! This series is best read in order and surely enhances a person's overall reading experience. I was able to read book 1 and book 6 without a problem. If you are looking for a paranormal romance series where the author properly invests in the lore/world-building, then Nightkeepers is the one for you!
