Love is the ultimate sacrifice...

An immortal child…
Issa is one of the original Night Walkers, a proud protector of the mortal world.

This book is a riveting and stunning conclusion to the Night series. One of the original Night Walkers, Issa joins with Muriah La Deaux on a race to Egypt in order to find a way to stop the God of Chaos. Muriah will have to use her psychic gift in order to save an immortal child and as the battle between love and chaos ensues, she will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with lots of action, suspense, drama and romance. The author uses well written scenes and details to inspire vivid images that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated action is not only believable, it makes the reader feel as if they are part of the unfolding drama. The strong compelling characters are easily understood and draw the reader deeper into the story and spine tingling anticipation builds throughout the story as Issa and Muriah try to outrun and outmaneuver the Chaos.
The attraction between Muriah and Issa steadily grows hotter as the story progresses and the sex scenes burn up the pages. The relationship will take a little work, there is the fact that he is immortal and she is not and they both have a few emotional issues to overcome which adds a lot of depth to the story and gets the reader emotionally involved. There also is some humorous moments as Muriah tells the God of the West how it is and of course he can’t believe she would talk to him that way, but he finds it kind of charming which just pushes him toward the mortal more.
The author’s fantastic world and captivating characters is an exciting spin on the Mayan end of the world concept that keeps the readers thoroughly entertained throughout the series. I am sorry to that the series is ending, but what a way to go, this book is a magnificent ending to the series and a wonderful goodbye to the characters though really wish I didn’t have to say goodbye, maybe there could be another story one day about the immortal child…hmmm…
