The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy…
Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.
The Time Untime approaches…
Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind.
What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life. One who belongs to a world the scientist in her refuses to believe is real.
Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has found the one person he can’t fight. The one person who, against his will, holds the most sacred part of him.
But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once.
Will he be able to make it again?
Review as on Goodreads by Sassy-Amy
This was a great book, but comparing it to all of her other books, this was only a 3 star. The premise was great, but some things were over played & some were forgotten.
This is about Ren (a Keetoowah warrior & dark-hunter) born from a mayan king & a goddess. He works with Kateri an anthopologist or whatever her phd is in... It is her destiny to reset time or the gates to the underworld will be opened & all of the demons & demon gods will be released on earth, ending it.
Ren was a stutterer, so he was treated & called retarded all of his life in his mayan world. His brother betrayed him anytime he was seen in a good perspective by his family. No one ever treated him with kindness... Until Kateri comes around & thinks he's one hot guy!
The present story opens up as Kateri receives a rock from another professor who she just found out was killed. It's stolen by force. I had a problem with that whole part of the book, because that issue was never resolved. That rock opened a gate. I have no idea how in the HEA that problem should have ever been mentioned or if it is a rollover to another book??? It's a precursor to all of these events in the book, but that & the death of Fernando were never really given the time they should have gotten??? (forgotten)
Also, this book was full (at least 1/3) of visions & memories/flashbacks... AND self loathing with a woman reassuring the man the whole time... OK! (overplayed).
It started out really good, but by the time I was near the end, I was tired of hearing about it. Thank god it didn't end with the victim taking pity on his torturers... I think I would have thrown it across the room! (That's not a spoiler unless you read it...You may think you know what happens, but you don't!)
