Review: Demonkeepers by Jessica Andersen

Title: Demonkeepers (Final Prophecy, #4)
Author: Jessica Andersen
Pages: 470
Publisher: Signet
Release Date: April 6, 2010

"Lucius is an Indiana Jones wannabe who never quite measures up until a twist of magic brings him powers beyond belief … and reunites him with Jade, the one-night stand he never forgot. Despite the sizzling chemistry between them—and the added power that comes with a love match—Jade is determined to prove that she can be a Nightkeeper warrior in her own right. But as the two race to rescue the sun god himself from the underworld, they learn that kicking ass isn’t enough. They’ll need all their brains and skill—and the love, long denied, that burns between them—to foil the dark lords’ plot."

My Thoughts: In Demonkeepers, the Nightkeepers must find a way to access the library of their ancestors in order to acquire knowledge of new spells and prophecies. Their only hope in finding the library is with Lucius. A human who has the Prophet's power lying within him. However, after rituals and blood sacrifices fail, it is decided that another type of magic should be used to try and awaken Lucius's powers. Sex magic. Although not having seen Lucius in months and not truly knowing the status of their relationship, Jade, who is tired of being on the sidelines, volunteers.

Demonkeepers is the second book I've read in Jessica Andersen's "Final Prophecy" series. From reading the first book in the series, Nightkeepers, there were some characters that I wanted to know more about, like Rabbit, Sven, Cara, and Jade. When I realized the fourth book was Jade and Lucius's story, I was very intrigued and couldn't wait to get started.

I must say that I really enjoyed the book. I liked Jade and Lucius. They were great characters, and I could easily connect with them. Both wanted to do more than what they felt they were actually capable of doing. Even though there were times where I was frustrated with them because they kept pulling back from each other, I thought they had an interesting (and hot) relationship. I was glad when they both began to realize that magic was not the only answer. And I was definitely rooting for them till the very end.

After reading this one, I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. Thank you goes out to the author, Jessica Andersen, for sending me a copy of the book! :)

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
