RELEASE DAY BLAST: "Night Child" by Lisa Kessler
Love is the ultimate sacrifice...
A psychic gift…
Muriah La Deaux’s latest job requires her to locate an ancient codex detailing a prophecy of an immortal birth. But before she can deliver it, her client is brutally murdered. Now a man with chaos in his eyes wants the codex she’s hiding.
An immortal child…
Issa is one of the original Night Walkers, a proud protector of the mortal world. Now, when the survival of his entire race rests on protecting an unborn child, Issa is the only immortal strong enough to protect Muriah on a risky mission—locate the lost scrolls that will trap their foe—but his tenuous grasp on his sanity is slipping.
The ultimate sacrifice…
Muriah’s headstrong spirit awakens feelings in Issa that are best left buried. But as the battle between love and chaos ensues, sacrifices must be made.

The final installment of Lisa Kessler's Night Series is here. As a longtime reader, I'm sad about its ending, but overjoyed at how the end was written here in Night Child.
Mrs. Kessler picks up after Night Demon and Night Angel, but, contrary to the title, the story doesn't center around the pregnant mortal Gretchen and her Night Walker beau Lukas, but around Lukas's mortal friend Muriah and Issa, the Night Walker god of the west.
Muriah has the gift of psychometry, which makes her job of finding ancient artifacts for sale easier. Her boyfriend, Richard, is murdered after asking her to find a Mayan codex depicting the birth of the Night Child.
The murderer is the god of Chaos, Apep, and he wants to control and kill all Night Walkers. Only Muriah can find the artifacts needed to trap him, and the stoic Issa must go with her to Egypt. If they don't succeed, Gretchen will die, as will the entire Night Walker race.
Out of all the Night books, Mrs. Kessler saved the best for last. Muriah is a hurt woman with a big heart that she keeps in iron chains and Issa, despite being an immortal god, is very much a detached man. They are relatable and are definitely my favorite couple in ALL of Mrs. Kessler's stories.
The narrative is fast-paced and you are never really sure what's going to happen next to this vast cast of characters.
My absolute favorite part, however, is the budding relationship between Zafrina and Lori. I wish that there would be another book dedicated to them! The LGBT relationship isn't there for shock value or for a higher rating: it's there because it's a natural development.
5/5--perfect way to end the series!
