Blog Tour of The Night Series by Lisa Kessler

Book #1

Night Walker (The Night Series, #1) 

Book Blurb:

 He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her...
Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.
She's haunted by dreams of her own death...
After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she's drawn to him in ways she doesn't understand.
They've waited in the shadows for centuries...
Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own.

Angie J's Review:

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

OK I have said it a million times but incase you forgot, I love paranormal.  Vampries, Shifters, Ghosts, Demons, etc are my favorite books to read.  When we were approached about the tour , I jumped at the chance.  I mean a new Paranormal series to read, yes please.

This story is as old as time.  Lovers who are forbidden to be together and face a tragic ending.  When Calisto was faced with the chance he could see his love again, he took it not knowing what all it entailed.  He becomes a Night Walker.  He scoffs at being called a vampire because they kill for sport.  He kills those humans who are worthless members of the human society in order to live.  He has stayed a recluse and a bit eccentric in the eyes of the humans he works with ever day.  He never gets close to anyone because he is waiting and waiting and waiting for his love to come back because the "old one" predicted her return to him.

Kate walks in on her soon to be husband getting some "extra attention" from one of his students.  So Kate tells him "ba-bye" and leave to sort through her family possessions.  They died over 2 years ago and so she needs to settle their estate.  One night she bumps into a very handsome stranger and seems drawn to him.  she hopes and prays she will see this hottie again.  Guess what kids?  Calisto is who she bumps into...WHAT you say!!!  Yup and he recognizes her immediately.  His goal is to have Kate for the rest of her immortal life with him because he will not turn her into a Night Walker like him.  He is happy to spend this life with her.

So you know there must be conflict right?  HELLO of course there is conflict.  Well, Calisto is being hunted by some cray cray religious fanatics who feel he must be killed as well as Kate.  They are the reason the two were separated over 200 years ago.......Calisto will stop at nothing to keep her safe while trying to keep his secret life a SECRET.

I completely enjoyed this book.  I am going to dive right into the next book.  You do meet the main character from book 2 in book 1.  He is accidentally created by Calisto!!!  Wonder is he is a happy camper or not???  HRMMMMM!!!!!  Better read so I can let you know :)

Book #2

Night Demon (Night Series, #2)

Book Blurb:

 Deep within the Yucatan jungle a demon has awakened...

Gretchen Finch's job would be much easier if she weren't alone in the jungle with a brilliant recluse whose every glance sets her on fire. But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature - the Night Demon - that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her scientific mind tells her it's impossible, she's beginning to believe the ancient Mayan tales as the sinister jungle comes alive around her.

Lukas Smith has spent hundreds of years searching for answers to his immortal Night Walker nature. As a series of ancient glyphs become clear, he's about to find out more than he'd ever hoped, but the more he learns, the more his fate intertwines with the Night Demon, and the harder it becomes to hide his immortal secret from the beautiful, intelligent Gretchen.

Together, they must find a way to stop the inexplicable violence and mass destruction surging across the earth before the Night Demon destroys more than just mankind.

Angie J's Review:

I received this book for this blog tour.

I was very excited to get to read book 1 and 2 of this series.  I really enjoyed book 1 and couldn't wait to jump into book 2.  Now I didn't realize, until I was half way through this book, that there is another book to this series.  It is Book 1.5.  I didn't feel I missed anything with skipping but had I known, I would have read it as well.

In this book we get to see more of Lucas.  Calisto is his maker and he doesn't have very kind feelings toward the man he feels took his humanity away.  Lucas is deep in the jungle with nerdy scientist Gretchen.  Gretchen and Lucas both has "feelings" for one another but keep things professional.  The two are in the jungle trying  find the secrets to the Night Walker beginnings.  They have noticed the jungle is very different and  feel an evil presence.  Well they discover some things and have to go back to the States so that Lucas can talk to his maker.

When Lukas and Gretchen return, Calisto is very upset and believes he is in trouble. He believes that  Lucas is there to kill Kate.  He was told by his sire that he has broken a Night Walker Law by creating 2 Night Walkers.  He knows that Kate is going to be hunted.  Kate listens to what Lucas tells them about the evil in the jungle that is causing human cities to have mass suicides.  Lucas realizes he loves our dear Gretchen but is a jackass and sends her packing after he explains he is immmortal....Like that is going to stop this woman.  Do you not know Gretchen Lucas????  Well Gretchen and the others all return to the jungle.

This part of the story is when it got very detailed and important.  You meet the 4 Gods and the Guardian.  Their job is to put the Night Goddess, Ch'en, and the demon she commands back into her "cage"  We also meet a fertility Priestess who knows what the demon is after and we get a glimpse into what the demon is capable of IF she gets free.  I love how the author incorporated all the characters into major roles in capturing the Night Goddess and the Demon. 

I will say this book was VERY VERY slow but VERY VERY methodical is setting up the all important ending of the book.  I was loving the ending and cannot wait for the next book in the series to be released. 

About the Author:

Wow! Goodreads just asked me for my city of birth and date of death... What if I could answer that? Would I live life differently if I knew for sure how much longer I had left?

Interesting thought.

That's generally how my writer brain works. I've been dreaming up stories since I was in elementary school. My first book was titled "The Wonders of Unicorn Creek" and my publisher was Dehesa elementary school.

Since then, I've published numerous short stories in anthologies and magazines. My story, "Immortal Beloved" was a finalist for a Bram Stoker award and was recently re-released in the "Dead Souls" anthology, along with a follow-up never-before-published story, "Subito Piano".

My debut novel, Night Walker, was released in 2012 and won a San Diego Book Award for Best Published Fantasy-SciFi-Horror. Night Walker also won the Romance Through the Ages in the Best Paranormal and Best First Book categories.

Night Thief will be released in Sept. 2012 and Night Demon will be released in the Spring of 2013...

I also post news and short stories on my Blog, so feel free to stop by for a read. http://lisakessler.wordpress.com
