"An battle to win in order to save the earth as we know it"

Fresh Fiction Review

Romance Paranormal

Jessica Anderson made several trips to the Yucatan as a child and found herself fascinated with the Mayan myths and legends. Therefore, when reports came out earlier in 2012 indicating that the world would end on December 21, 21012 at 5am, it fit perfectly with her paranormal series, The Nightkeepers. Her story portrays the Mayan Calendar predicting that the Gods from the upper regions and the Banol Kax of the lower regions would have a great battle; however, prior to this great battle the Banol Kax want to destroy the true God's pitiful humans by unleashing a deadly xombi virus on the human race. This virus is part magic and part biochemical. It is passed from one human to human through a single bite. The virus is spreading worldwide and it is up to the Nightkeepers to not only save the human race from this deadly disease, but to save the world from Armageddon.

SPELLFIRE is book eight out of nine novels of the Nightkeepers by Author Jessica Anderson. Even if you have not read books one through seven the author helps you get up to speed on what is happening within the Nightkeeper group. The Nightkeepers protect the thin barrier that protects the earth from the underworld. Most of the Nightkeepers are magi, but there are also human allies who also help defend the barrier. The strongest among the magi is Rabbit along with his love half named Myrinne, who is a telekinetic human. They all reside at Skywatch Mansion Southeast of Chaco Canyon. The main gate to the mansion is locked with wards in order to keep unwelcomed visitors out including the Banol Kax, the millennium tortured Lords of the Underworld.

The author, Jessica Anderson has created a vivid world of demons, a demoness, magi, and Lords of the Underworld. The story does begin with a torture scene which for some readers, may be really difficult to read. Jessica Anderson is a wonderful writer. Her writing is fluid and detailed. Readers will never be confused from paragraph to paragraph. Ms Anderson really pays attention to detail in a very exciting and thought-provoking way. Even the New Mexico Badlands were brought to vivid life in my mind. I found this book to be captivating and it truly was hard to put it down. If you love paranormal thrillers this is a book I would encourage you to buy. Jessica Anderson will keep you reading on the edge of your seat.

SUMMARY

Imprisoned and tortured by the demoness who tricked him into betraying the Nightkeepers and the woman he loves, Rabbit must endure excruciating pain to protect the diminished Skywatch army as the end-time approaches. Although an ancient prophecy says his unique powers are key to winning the final battle in the doomsday war, he hasn’t just lost his credibility—he’s lost his magic.

Myrinne is far from the woman Rabbit once knew—she’s got magic now, and despite emotional scars, she’s strong enough to help the Nightkeepers. And yet she’s not prepared to handle the fiercely driven man he’s become or the new, dangerous feelings that spark between them.

With the barrier ready to fall and a xombi outbreak in the human world, Rabbit and Myrinne must forge a new partnership amid dangerous instability and the threat of an undead army. In the end, it will be up to Rabbit to master his ferocious magic—or all will be lost. For him, for the woman he doesn’t have the right to love anymore, and for the fate of the world…
