Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is a vampire war brewing in the underworld and at the center of it all is Damali Richards, spoken word artist and Vampire Huntress. But she is not just any Vampire Huntress, she is the millenium Neteru. A woman so potentially powerful that the vampire world is about to invoke a bloody battle that threatens to spill over onto her streets in order to posses her. It's just a matter of who will get to her first. Fallon Nuit, a rogue vampire, is one of the most powerful Damali has ever encountered and he has allied himself with the deadly Amanrath demons in order to claim her. But the Vampire Council has plans for her as well. And now an unlikely variable has entered into the equation, an ex-lover now turned vampire with an agenda of his own. And she must risk trusting him once more if they are to survive.

L. A. Banks is the author of the Vampire Huntress Legends series.  She has a bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School and a master's in fine arts from Temple University.  Banks considers herself a shape-shifter. She has written romance, women's fiction, crime and suspense, and, of course, dark vampire huntress lore.  She lives with her daughter and her dog in an undisclosed lair somewhere in Philadelphia.

"Banks solidifies her intriguing, dark series as a project worth watching, and readers will be pleased to learn another installment is on the way."Kristine Huntley, Booklist

"I highly recommend L. A. Banks' Vampire Huntress Series for use in courses ranging from high school to college. I have used this series as recommended reading for my graduate students in Women's Studies and they cannot stop talking about these works. Banks' writing is smart, poignant, and engaging. Students aren't able to put the books down. Each novel in the series brims with social critique and commentary. Banks is a perceptive writer who provides a wonderful critique of societal issues, from the impact of drugs to self-responsibility and self-reliance to the choices we all make in life. Students who engage in the work of L. A. Banks will leave the classroom with sharper critical thinking skills and a newfound joy of reading."Gwendolyn D. Pough, Associate Professor of Women's Studies and Writing, Syracuse University, and author of Check It While I Wreck It: Black Womanhood, Hip-Hop Culture, and the Public Sphere

Review:

"Strong improvement for Banks, who found herself attacked by Internet fans of Laurel K. Hamilton, Anita Blake, and Buffy's Joss Whedon, vampiricists who make no reflections in mirrors." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The author devotes most of her energies to fleshing out minutiae of her weird world....The result is an ambitious but often slow-going fantasy that will appeal mainly to Banks's loyal minions." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Banks's sequel to Minion envisions an intriguing portrait of vampiric society, reminiscent of Anne Rice and Laurell K. Hamilton. A good series...with sure appeal to fans of vampire fiction." Library Journal
