If you have been following the series, this is Lucius and Jade's story.

Mayan lore and modern science warn that 12/21/2012 could bring a global cataclysm … a threat that is far more real than we imagine. Dark forces stand poised to overrun the earth and crush humanity beneath a vicious rule of terror and blood sacrifice. Our only hope rests with a group of saviors living in secret among us: modern magic-wielding warriors called the Nightkeepers.
Now, in the last few years before the 2012 doomsday, these magi must find and win their destined mates in order to protect the barrier of psi energy that forms humanity’s last line of defense against an ancient and powerful enemy.
Book 4 - Releasing April 6, 2010
Thanks very much for having me on today, Doug, and to your readers for stopping by and spending a few minutes with the Nightkeepers.
I think part of the fascination is that I live out in the sticks (relative to New England, anyway), and following the Sox connects me to a larger community. There’s also this great sense of pomp and longstanding tradition … and this year, the fun kismet of Opening Day coinciding with the release of Demonkeepers.
On Demonkeepers, Publishers’ Weekly said: “Andersen ramps up the danger (in a story that) mixes action and elements of Mayan myth—from a voyage to the underworld to a fantastic high-stakes ballgame—with soul-searching, lust and romance.”
Despite the sizzling chemistry between them—and the added power that comes with a love match—Jade is determined to prove that she’s more than a researcher … she can be a Nightkeeper warrior in her own right.
But as the two race to rescue the sun god himself from the underworld, they learn that kicking ass isn’t enough. They’ll need all their brains and skill—and the long-denied love that burns between them—to foil the dark lords’ plot.
