Overview
Read Jessica Andersen's posts on the Penguin Blog.
In the first century A.D., Mayan astronomers predicted the world would end on December 21, 2012. Modern scientists say dire solar flames and magnetic fluctuations will all occur on that exact day. In these final years before the End Times, demon creatures of the Mayan underworld--The Makols--have come to earth to trigger the apocalypse. But the Chajinal, descendants of the Mayan warrior-priests, have decided to fight back.

In "Nightkeepers," a Makol uses a lost rite known as The Godkeeper to call a demon to earth. During the ritual, a sky god attempts to possess the demon's human sacrifice, a narcotics detective named Leah Ann Daniels. The rite is unsuccessful, but gives Leah magical powers, and strands the god between planes. Warned by a cryptic message from an ally, King Jaguar Striker arrives just in time to save Leah...but is exiled when he breaks Chajinal law. Leah and Striker must bond together to defeat the embodied demon and gain support of the Chajinal army--all before the next solstice, when another demon will try to pass through.

"Nightkeepers" combines Mayan astronomy and lore with modern, sexy characters for a gripping read. Fans of paranormal romance and urban fantasy will not want to miss Jessica Andersen's The Final Prophecy series

New and cool

Imaginative, romantic and exciting all describe Jessica Andersen's Nightkeepers, the first in a new series titled "The Final Prophecy." The Nightkeepers are a line of magi dedicated to saving the world from the upcoming end times as predicted by the Mayan calendar. They're a small band, led by a reluctant king, and their current task is complicated by Miami narcotics detective Leah Daniels—and the attraction the group's leader, Strike, feels for her. Romance, Mayan legend and the history of this magic-wielding group are woven together in a well-paced, action-filled story. Readers will encounter blood sacrifice and demons and gods, but also characters who wish they could be ordinary, grappling with the fact that the world's survival relies on their extraordinary talents. A large cast gives this book a rich feel and bodes well for more apocalyptic battles and emotion-charged romance to come in this compelling series.

Christie Ridgway's latest contemporary romance, How to Knit a Wild Bikini, hit shelves in June.
