Publisher Comments:

A Neteru — a hunter or a huntress — is born every thousand years in favor of the Warriors of Light as they fight against the Dark Realms. But Damali Richards is the Millennium Neteru. The one who will play a pivotal role in the Final War. The Warriors of Light had been waiting for her and the Dark Realms will do anything to either possess or destroy her. What they did not account for was the man who would love her.

Damali Richard has been to hell and back — literally — and she is not eager to repeat the trip. A Vampire civil war has been averted, but there were casualties and she believes that Carlos Rivera, former lover turned master vampire, is one of them. His death has not only shaken her emotions, but weakened her powers as well. But then Damali gets word that horrific killings are taking place in Brazil. The vampire civil war has left a small door to hell open and new and dangerous foes have risen from the Dark Realms. The leader, a deadly female, is set on a path of destruction. However, her blood lust hides a nefarious plan and the newly resurrected Carlos Rivera is at the heart of it. But Damali is not about to lose her man a second time, so she plans to send this old girl right back to hell she came from — no matter who stands in her way.

Review:

"Banks combines the rhythms of hip-hop and reggae with the fast-paced action of street-savvy thriller. Her engrossing, albeit graphically violent, tale is recommended for dark fantasy collections." Library Journal

Review:

"Banks fleshes out the rich world Damali and her friends and enemies inhabit, making it an even more exciting place to visit. Another thrilling tale." Booklist

Review:

"The Hunted is a spellbinding thrill ride that readers will wish would never end. L.A. Banks has a way with words that holds readers captive and riveted from the first page to the last. She is a master of this genre." Zane, The New York Times bestselling author of Skyscraper, Nervous and Addicted

Review:

"Fresh, hip and fantastic, LA Banks writes a killer vamp series. Watch out world, Damali is on the prowl." Sherrilyn Kenyon, USA Today bestselling author of Dance with the Devil (Dark Hunter series)

Review:

"L. A. Banks provides a terrifying roller-coaster ride of a book through a world invisible to most of us; a world in which vampires and vampire hunters fight on levels in hell and in the streets, in the bedroom and on the throne, for the salvation of mankind, the dominion of the demon world, and the love of one man for one woman." Charlaine Harris, National Bestselling author of Club Dead (The Southern Vampire series)

Synopsis:

A vampire civil war has been averted, but now Damali Richards must stop bloodthirsty were-demons from putting a nefarious plan in motion, pitting The Covenant, The Guardians, and The Vampire Council against each other.

Synopsis:

Each millennium brings a new Neteru, a vampire huntress whose mission is to vanquish evil from the world. This millennium's savior has come in the form of Damali Richards, a hip-hop diva with the heart of a warrior and an attitude to match. But a war in Hell has cost Damali both her powers and her past love, Carlos Rivera. Still, Damali can't let her grief stand in her way. Several gruesome deaths, starting with an American research team, have come to Damali's attention in Brazil. The nature of the deaths leads Damali to believe that the killer is anything but human...

Unknown to Damali, the life of Master Vampire Carlos Rivera was saved by a most unlikely group: a band of monks also dedicated to fighting the Dark Realm. In exchange, they want Carlos to help stop the inhuman murders plaguing Brazil-and they will use Damali as bait if they have to. Reunited, Damali and Carlos give in to the erotic passion they have fought for so long. Together, they are a powerful force. But Damali has made a terrifying enemy who won't rest until the beautiful Neteru is dead...

Your basic steamy romance novel with a smattering of fantasy. I don't know what the reviewers read, but I found it a shade under average.
