The Damned with Poster (Vampire Huntress Legend) by L A Banks
The Damned with Poster (Vampire Huntress Legend)

Singlegal, July 11, 2006

This is an installment in a series of vampire huntress novels, and it's an artful melding of modern fiction, folklore and pop culture. The imaginative treatment of the vampire is unlike anything else I've read or seen. My personal series favorite is "The Bitten," but I've read them all (except "The Foresaken," the newest installment), and every volume rocks. It's time and money very well spent.

Kindred by Octavia E Butler

Singlegal, April 17, 2006

This novel is a well-crafted work of art. Butler takes hold of the reader from the first page and never lets go. A consummate storyteller, she creates complex, realistic characters with whom the reader can sympathize and identify. I totally enjoyed the book, and am now building my Octavia Butler library.
