As a Miami narcotics detective, Leah Daniels never knows how her day will turn out.  But she certainly never expected to be strapped to a stone altar, the human sacrifice in an ancient Mayan ritual meant to coax up a demon from the underworld.  Or that she'd be saved by a handsome warrior-priest king who claims to recognize her fro...  more »

I really, really wanted to LOVE this book. I loved the concept of the Mayan Prophecy. But I was disappointed. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what didn't grab me about this book - but I think it's that I really didn't connect with any of the characters (and there were a lot of them!). I thought the hero was selfish and a bit whiny - and yes, I know he was on a journey to embrace his kingness - but I still wasn't that impressed. There was a big climactic battle at the end that I skimmed. Even now, I probably could not explain to anyone what actually happened. And there was a death at the end that kind of surprised me since I was led to believe throughout the whole book that this characters had secrets in the past but now that character is dead and the secrets as well. I didn't hate the book but I read it because I felt I needed to finish it. I may give the next book a chance - when it comes to my local library.

I thought I would enjoy this series---the premise of the Mayan Final Prophesy, but honestly, it was just too much. I didn't care too much about the characters (and there were many). I was 'blah' about the entire book. I can't put my finger on exactly why this book dragged for me, maybe because it had too many story lines to follow or because the story skips around from one character's perspective to another. I had to FORCE myself to finish this book. I wanted to give the series a chance so I picked up the second book and I am at chapter 8 and I am forcing myself to read it. My friend on the other hand loved this series, she has read up to the third book but I don't think I will get that far.

I happened to really like this book. It was different in the paranormal genre in that it did not deal with witches, vampire & shape shifters.... It dealt with a real part of history...the Mayans and the 2012 prophecy. Which is very interesting without the Nightkeeper fiction aspect! I enjoyed the book but could tell it was a 1st effort by a 1st time author. There were a few cliches here and there but nothing that turned me off or doesn't have me waiting for the next book....which I hope will be even better. I definately think it is worth the read! Not your run of the mill paranormal romance!

I found this book to be confusing from the start. I couldn't get into the characters & I didn't even finish it.

There were some good ideas in this book but it was just really long-winded. I ended up skim reading it a lot. I wished she spent more time developing the relationships and the characters rather than on several pages of what minor characters were doing. Some of the actions scenes were convoluted and the big battle scene at the end was a bit of a disappointment.
