The Last Keeper Of The Light: A Dystopian Fantasy by Nikki Broadwell

The world was dark, the grid down—probably for good. No one knew why.

Raiders held the upper hand, combing the forests in search of what they needed. Weapons were in short supply, as was food and clean water.

Sandal had only known the reality of trying to stay one step ahead of danger. But when she met Jacob things changed. He was her lifeline, her one tether. And when they parted, her hope vanished along with him.

But that was then. Now she must find her way out of a world gone mad, or die trying.

Cold Coffee Review: Each civilization including the Hopi Indians have their own version of the Apocalypse with world events in step with what earth is experiencing today; which include earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, record flooding, wildfires, droughts, and famines. The Last Keeper Of The Light begins as the world has gone dark, no power grid, no communication, rapid crime, and little hope outside small nomadic communities.

Families, including that of the main character Sandal, is living with day to day survival, collecting what resources they can, finding the necessary food, clean water and shelter as they try to stay out of the way of Raiders. It is what looks to be a glass snow globe that Sandal rescues off the beach. This globe becomes a source of “one constant” in a life with no guarantees.

Hope comes and goes. Days turn into week, months and years. Sandal “kept going, her panting loud in her ears. The rain pelted, raising welts on her arms and legs, her face burning. The landscape she remembered was long gone”. “A house loomed up in front of her. A house? Where did that come from? Was it occupied—should she steer clear? But she was already there, pushing open the unlocked door. She glanced around the empty dust-filled room. “Anyone here?” There was no answer. In the kitchen she found an old mildewed towel. She placed the sphere in a coffee cup and wiped ineffectually at her skin. Everything hurt, including her eyeballs. When she explored she found a bed that looked recently slept in, with a dust free ragged blanket. She lay down and closed her eyes. She was dreaming–Jacob was with her, his face lined, his hair fully gray like hers. He kissed her, his mouth as dry as the desert. She woke with a start.”

What now?

I enjoyed reading this Dystopian Fantasy. I can hope that The Last Keeper Of The Light is going to be a series since I have read several books within series by Author Nikki Broadwell. Nikki’s published works include her Gypsy Series, Wolfman Trilogy, Paranormal Series, Desert Series and stand-alone books.  I purchased this book from Kindle and this review was completed on August 9, 2018

Just Another Desert Sunset: A Shapeshifter Romance (Coyote Book 1) – by Nikki Broadwell

This book was a finalist in the Chanticleer paranormal book awards 2014 and has had two honorable mentions in other contests.

Just Another Desert Sunset is part mystical encounter, part Native American mythology, part shape shifters, and part romance.

“Coyote, why do you stare at the horizon?” Raven asked, looking down from his perch in the Palo Verde. “It’s just another desert sunset.”

But coyote didn’t hear him, his attention on the human female he could smell in the distance. He stared hard, honing in on her as she drew closer. Hair the color of the sun, long legs smooth and hairless where they appeared beneath the strip of cloth. An unfamiliar sensation went through his body. The shaman promised him one wish and when that wish was granted he would walk on two legs.

“I know what you’re thinking, you imbecile,” Raven cawed loudly, interrupting his reverie. “Do you really expect that woman to pay attention to you? Even if you look human you’ll still be a filthy and disgusting animal in her eyes. Give it up, coyote, and be what you are.”

But coyote was already loping away…

Cold Coffee Review: “There was once a coyote who wanted to become a man, but before he could be granted his wish the shaman asked him for three things.”

Just Another Desert Sunset is a provocative paranormal romance that begs the reader to recognize the fine line between humans and animals in a mystical realm that honors Native Americans traditions and beliefs.

This face paced well written story takes place in Arizona where Author Nikki Broadwell uses the beauty of both sky and land with desert creatures that crawl, area birds fly and furry animals that hunt. Nikki weaves spell binding rituals with humans that are going about their lives unaware of the clash of cultures that exists as a fine line ready to tear the very fabric of time and space.

Well-developed characters live in a modern world that collide with a spiritual world were a coyote leaves his familiar pack in search of a way to become a human man. His deepest desire is to see, hear, feel and make love to Sarah who overwhelms his senses with her fragrances and beauty which brings confusion and longing in his spirit. Shape-shifting is not new to literature, but it is new to coyote when his warm, four footed fury body shifts into a Native American man named Istaga with yellow eyes, long braids and smooth, hairless skin.

I quote a passage where romance bridges instinct. “Coyote woke with a start, staring down at the woman curled up next to him. She looked serene and peaceful, a slight smile curling up the corners of her mouth. He wanted to stay as he was, wanted her to know him as animal as well as man, but it was too soon—too early for her to find out the truth. If she woke now he couldn’t imagine how she would react seeing a wild beast lying next to her. He thought of the night before and how he had longed to turn into his coyote form but had managed to control the urge. How he wished his visions would come to pass—that they could change together from human to animal while they mated. When he moved away she moaned in her sleep, reaching for him, but he was already loping into the underbrush, searching for their breakfast.

When Sara woke, Istaga was gone, nothing left to indicate he’d ever been there. She had a moment of panic, wondering if she’d dreamed the entire scenario, but then she felt the sand in her hair, the sore muscles in her shoulders and hips and smiled to herself. There had been no exchange of the usual endearments between them but somehow the episode felt profound and deeper than any sex she’d ever experienced. Except for the first time with Istaga, she thought to herself, chuckling. Hopefully he had only gone to relieve himself and would be back soon. The thought of him disappearing from her life again was too painful to bear.”

I endorse Just Another Desert Sunset by Nikki Broadwell as a delightful paranormal romance that intertwines human and animal nature in its purest form. Nikki currently has 10 books within 4 series, two Kindle Gift sets and a new book coming out early in 2016. I purchased this book from Kindle.

Coyote Sunrise- A Shapeshifting Story – by Nikki Broadwell

Part mystical, part Native American, and part romance, this book will take you on a roller coaster ride into the secret world of a coyote.

The news on the TV above the bar showed a man shifting into a coyote, its fangs sinking deep into another man’s arm. The screams were bloodcurdling.

But when a blonde woman holding a baby was caught on camera, a gasp of disbelief moved around the bar. No one could remember what happened after that, but one man said he was sure he’d seen both of them shift into coyotes and lope into the dark night.

Cold Coffee Review: Excellent storytelling will draw you into this must-read series. If you love animals and want to protect their environment, this tantalizing paranormal sci-fi romance will take you across the fine line between humans and animals in a mystical realm that honors Native Americans and exposes the dark side of human nature.

Coyote Sunrise is book two (Just Another Desert Sunset-Book One) in the series where the reader is drawn into the life of Sara and Istaga and their two-year-old baby (Kaliska) who shift from the human world into the treacherous world of coyotes. Although a series, each book stands alone as Author Nikki Broadwell masterfully writes a complete saga from beginning to end with expert knowledge of the Tucson Arizona Desert, Coyotes, American Indian Traditions and the mission of the Predator Masters Hunting Group who hunt to kill predators, especially Coyotes with the blessing of the United States Government.

Descriptive writing brings the reader not only into the story but into the desert environment with the glory of sunrises and sunsets, the birds of the air and the creatures of the land with raw dangers that are inherit in the life cycle of coyotes. Istaga along with his wife Sara is determined to “keep these hunters from laying waste to all predators”. I am careful not to spoil the story for the reader, but I always quote a passage so you can experience the authors writing style.

“Once she was away from town she shifted, knowing it would take less time on four legs. The moon was up, spreading silver light across the pale desert landscape and seeming to light her way. Her belly was empty and she was anxious to see her pup and her mate, but other than that her mind was on the pungent scents riding the cool night air and the other animals roaming and trying to stay out of sight. In the distance she heard sirens, a sound that never failed to make her heart beat faster.

Her anxiety began to taper once she reached the river and swam across. There was no light from the fire when she worked her way up the steep cliff face toward their cave. Her coyote mind pictured raw meat instead of cooked, her mouth filling with saliva. But as she approached the cave she stopped to listen. There were no sounds coming from within. Before she processed the thought, she was standing on two legs, alarm filling her body with adrenaline. Ducking her head under the overhanging lip of the cave she entered dark space. There was no one there.”

So, check your DNA and keep turning the pages as the dialog and story-line is keenly in Nikki’s realm of imagination and sphere of time. I encourage to read Coyote Sunrise as I now wait for the next story in this series to take shape in Nikki’s mind.

I endorse Coyote Sunrise: A Shapeshifting Story by Nikki Broadwell as a tale of courage and survival. Coyote Sunrise is Nikki’s eleventh novel and follows Just Another Desert Sunset that shares a place and time where Nikki and her husband call home. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on January 6, 2016.

Faery (Wolfmoon Book 4) – by Nikki Broadwell

“Where are you?” Harold called, searching desperately through the forest. The footprints had disappeared, wind blowing snow in little eddies around his head. He felt dizzy for a moment, wondering if the elves had cast a spell. Maeve was not dressed for the cold–she would die if he didn’t find her soon…

Between the birth of their baby girl and Maeve’s obsession with the faery known as the ‘love talker’ lie many twisted paths. When the elven queen becomes part of the equation it takes more than love to reweave what’s been unraveled. A Fae civil war brings Harold’s alter ego, King Kenneth MacAlpin, to the fore, possibly ruining Maeve and Harold’s relationship forever. Danger abounds, bringing with it hard decisions and possibly death.

The Wolf Moon: A Supernatural Fantasy – by Nikki Broadwell

The Wolf Moon is a second edition, combining Willow and Raven (books 2 and 3 of Wolfmoon series) into one. The fantasy/romance has been revamped and streamlined for those who like a shorter read, and will appeal to fans of the Outlander series and those who enjoy Juliet Marillier’s work.

On the way to the airport before Maeve’s flight to Scotland, she and her boyfriend Harold argue over an ancient map. Why was it included in one of the crates of paintings that arrived at the gallery where Maeve works, and what did it have to do with her reunion with her mother?

Maeve is about to find out. When she’s thrown into a parallel world on the night of winter Solstice she wishes she hadn’t left the map back at the cottage. Alone in a land where goddesses and druids still roam, Maeve must come to terms with an ancient prophecy that names her as the one to bring Otherworld back from the brink of disaster. What will happen when Harold arrives in Scotland to join her? Will he find the map and attempt to locate her, or will he leave thinking she doesn’t care for him anymore? But there is no time to think about Harold or what may or may not happen–she needs to concentrate on staying alive.

Cold Coffee Press Spotlight Interview With Author Nikki Broadwell

Nikki Broadwell

I was raised by fairies in a sylvan glade under a massive oak tree. My early life was spent wandering fields and woods searching for acorns and berries and staring at the cloud shadows racing across the landscape while listening to the whispers on the wind.

Magic and the mystical are alive and well in all my books. Celtic and Norse fantasy, time travel, murder mixed up with ghosts, humor and steamy romance, and a shapeshifting coyote, inhabit my 19 novels. If confused about where to begin–start with Moonstone, book 1 of Wolfmoon.

My books are not what you would call literature, and yet they are not mere entertainment either. They are unique–humorous at times, sad at times, and page-turners that take the reader into a world separate from this one. I do not write to market, I write from my heart.

I couldn’t stop writing if I tried–it is the heart and soul of me now. I am still astounded by how my characters lead me on, taking me down meandering paths where I hadn’t planned to go. The muse sits on my shoulder most days, and when she’s absent I flounder and realize I need a break. I love all things magic, including the Tarot, the runes, divination of all kinds, ghosts, clairvoyance, astral travel–you name it. Magic is all around us if only we open our eyes to it.

I lived in the Pacific Northwest for sixteen years before moving to the desert southwest with my husband, a cat and a dog. The move was hard because I left family behind, but Arizona is a wonderful place to be and the weather, at least in the winter, is delightful!

In my spare time I do yoga, hike, garden, and enjoy the bird and animal life that abound in the desert. Check my blog http://jalapenosandjavelina.blogspot.com/for tales of close encounters with rattlesnakes, coyotes and javelina!

Interview:

What makes you proud to be a writer from Tucson, Arizona? I am proud to be a writer no matter where I live, but this area has a special mystical quality about it that harkens back to the early days of the Native tribes who lived here.

What or who inspired you to become a writer? I always loved to write—my favorite classes in school were when the teacher gave us one unfinished sentence and told the class to write for fifteen minutes. In college I majored in Art and English, unsure which was the most important to me.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? I spent a lot of time alone when I was a kid—There were no electronic devices then and so I was able to use my imagination to make up stories as I roamed forests and fields. I was an army brat and so we moved a lot, which added to my introversion. I read books nonstop.

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published? It was around 2003 that I began a serious story that had to do with my father’s time as a POW. That book still languishes due to the heavy emotional toll it took. In the meantime, I began a fantasy that took off and turned into three books. I sent it out to 60 agents before I decided to self-publish.

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing and publishing journey? The writing itself is my reward. I feel blessed that the muse has seen fit to stick with me!

How many published books do you have? I’m working on book 20—The Last Keeper of the Light should be published in a week or two.

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre? I write in several genres—the main one is fantasy, but I also write paranormal mystery, historical fiction and dystopian.

What do you like to do when you are not writing? We just got back from a trip to Britain…I love to travel. Travel has brought me many ideas for my books. I also like to hike with my dog, and do yoga—I’m also thinking about making my own shea butter products…

What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors? Main one is do not be discouraged. There are many writers and many approaches to writing. Don’t give into the crowd mentality—think for yourself. And READ avidly!

Who is your favorite author and why? If I had one favorite author it would probably be Lewis Carrol. Alice in Wonderland was my favorite book growing up, as well as his other writings—also loved Rudyard Kipling (Jungle books) There are so many it would take a full page to list them all! Of course, Tolkien comes to mind. I love fantastical stories like The Night Circus.

What writers would you compare yourself to? I have always had a difficult time when I’m asked to compare myself with other writers. There seems to be a marketing trend now about describing oneself as a mix between this author and that. I question this. I recently read a book about Hemingway, who felt as I do—he thought of himself as unique and frowned on comparisons with others. I understand the reasoning, but my contention is—can’t being unique be a claim to fame? w
