Bangs' new group of heroes have the souls of ultimate predators, which is good for saving the world, but dangerous for the women who fall for them. The Mayan 2012 prophecy is the launching point for the intricate, dark and utterly gripping Gods of the Night series.
To save humanity from destruction, the Eleven have been resurrected and placed in human bodies by the enigmatic being known as Fin. Their fight is against a being called Zero who uses his own group of ultimate predators to set the world's destruction in motion. Jenna Maloy suspects there's more to her sister Kelly's new marriage to the mysterious Ty than meets the eye. When Jenna discovers the truth, she learns she's key to this eternal conflict.
Al's primitive predator heart is too close to the surface, and Fin fears he could lose control. Will Al's attraction to Jenna save him or push him over the edge? Nobody can afford to be distracted in this life-and-death struggle. (LEISURE, May, 352 pp., $7.99)
