The second full-length tale in Kessler’s Night series concerns a demon intent on destroying mankind and an ordinary woman who risks everything to stop it. However, the story is complicated by too many confusing characters and frequent point-of-view changes. In addition, some violently realistic suicides may be too much for some readers. The ending, an epilogue that leads to the next book, is a bit of a letdown.

Gretchen Finch has no idea that her boss, Lukas Smith, is a Night Walker, an immortal who’s hired her to translate ancient Mayan glyphs in hopes of finding an end to his existence. With mass suicides increasing around the world, Gretchen is caught alone in the jungle with an evil presence. Driven to protect her, Lukas insists she travel to San Diego with him as he confronts his maker. But rather than embracing relative safety, Gretchen travels back to the ruins where she accepts that the supernatural is real and meets a mysterious woman who may hold the key to conquering the Night Demon, who plans on destroying the world.
