Deep within the Yucatan jungle, a demon has awakened…
Gretchen Finch’s job would be much easier if she weren’t alone in the jungle with a brilliant recluse whose every glance sets her on fire. But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature—the Night Demon—that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her scientific mind tells her it’s impossible, she’s beginning to believe the ancient Mayan tales as the sinister jungle comes alive around her.
Lukas Smith has spent hundreds of years searching for answers to his immortal Night Walker nature. As a series of ancient glyphs become clear, he’s about to find out more than he’d ever hoped, but the more he learns, the more his fate intertwines with the Night Demon, and the harder it becomes to hide his immortal secret from the beautiful, intelligent Gretchen.
Together, they must find a way to stop the inexplicable violence and mass destruction surging across the earth before the Night Demon destroys more than just mankind.
Review: I learned more about the Mayans in this book than I ever did in school.
There were times in this book that I was just a little lost. There is so much information and so many characters that at times I seemed to get it all mixed up. At times I even got the characters mixed up. I loved all the info that was in this book and at times I could really believe it. I asked myself could this really be true. Made more sense then a lot of other things I have ever learned.
I really enjoyed Gretchen’s spunkiness. She has a thirst for knowledge and is very loyal. She is also very smart and I enjoyed reading about her. She even outsmarted the demon. That is something that not even the gods could do. The song that she uses to keep others out of her mind is one I never would have thought anyone would use against such strong men.
I was afraid that Lukas was going to not let anything get in his way of finding a way to end his life. How could he let the woman of his life get away because he just didn’t want to share his secret. Sometimes men can be so dense. Behind every man is an even stronger woman. I knew Gretchen would do what she thought was right and not listen to Lukas.
Even though at times I was a little lost I worked my way through this book and I was glad that I did when I just took everything in. The author did a wonderful job with her story and I loved the knowledge that she had about Mayans and the gods. I was left thinking that maybe if I had read the first book I wouldn’t have been so lost.
So while I go back and read the first book before the third one comes out, you need to read the first one too. I can’t wait to see what will happen in the third book. I hope that no one else gets hurt and that everything works out. I know there has to be mystery and suspense to make a great read but not too much please. I don’t know if I can handle it.
This book did more than keep my attention and now I want to see what else I will find out about these night walkers. So come along and join this great adventure with me.
