A childhood bond has been stretched to the breaking point in this thrilling new chapter of the Nightkeepers. With this tale of prophecy and curses, Andersen really shakes up her series. Love, loss, passion and drama are all here. You won’t be able to put this one down!
After escaping his crazy winikin Louis Keban, teenage Mendez hooked up with another lost child, Reese Montana. They were inseparable until Keban found Dez and cut him with a cursed obsidian blade, changing his personality. Dez hooked up with the Nightkeepers and the shadow was removed from his mind, but then he disappeared. Reese has used her unusual ability to see patterns to become a successful PI, but she is not prepared when Strike wants to hire her to find Dez. Reese never wanted to believe all Dez’s talk of magic and demons, but now she has little choice. When Reese does locate Dez, she learns he is hunting Keban, who is trying to fulfill the prophecy of the serpent staff. If Lord Vulture is released from the underworld, all hell will really break loose. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Jun., 480 pp., $7.99)
