Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Prophecies fragment the Nightkeepers, heroes who stand between Earth and the underworld, in Andersen's sixth adventure of the Mayan end times (after Blood Spells). Snake "Dez" Mendez is struggling to make things right after years as a criminal under demonic influence, but his former guardian thrusts him into a situation that requires him to keep secrets and tell lies. He also has the chance to win back Reese Montana, the girl he loved and lost—but the prophecy that binds him could also keep them apart forever. Andersen successfully shifts point of view to hide Dez's secrets from readers while still gaining their empathy, balancing Dez's toughness with his vulnerability to Reese, but she misses the opportunity to transcend stereotypes of Hispanic gangs or acknowledge modern Native American or Hispanic culture despite a plethora of ancient prophecies and artifacts. (June)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Nightkeeper Dez Mendez goes off grid, PI Reese Montana is hired to track Dez down - Dez's presence for the next cardinal day battle is key to the Nightkeepers' success in staving off doomsday. When Reese catches up with Dez, Dez manages to convince Reese to hold off on turning him in, and while Reese agrees to help Dez search for artifacts Dez claims will aid the Nightkeepers in the upcoming conflict, Reese suspects that Dez may just be pursuing his own agenda.

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.

Absolutly amazing as always! Of all of the characters I have been excited about, Dez was probably the one I was the least excited about. BOY WAS I PROVED WRONG though!! The twist at the end between Dez and Strike was totally unexpected!

I can't wait for the next one.

I have been curious about Mendez since the very first book, when he was hauled to prison and Strike gave up on him. Now a year has passed, and Dez is part of the team. He is big and strong, and he still keeps secrets from his fellow warriors. So when he goes after his mad Winikin when he has send Dez a message, he doesn't tell the others about it. Who think they have no other choice but to send the bounty hunter who apprehended him before after him. Not knowing that Reese and Dez have a shared past.
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.

Jessica Andersen incorporates Mayan and other Native American lore into this series. The protagonists' goal is to prevent the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy - the end of days - from occurring. The Nightkeepers use their magic, strengthened by their fated mates, to fight the Mayan underworld's gods.

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!
