There is no happily ever after

…for Damali and Carlos, even though they have finally tied the knot. There are bigger problems on the horizon: A band of human scientists conducting secret experiments has opened the dimension that holds Cain, the son of Eve and the new Chairman of the Vampire Council. And now that Cain is back into the human world, hes bigger and badder than ever.

 

THE WICKED

 

Cain has amassed an army of creatures no one has ever encountered before…and he has plans of his own for his beloved Vampire Huntress Damali. So when she heads to Hell to serve justice—and faces a nemesis of pure, unforeseen evil—its all Carlos can do to get Damali back. After all, his wife might be pregnant. The question is: Is Damalis child his—or the Chairmans?

Finally, wedded bliss for Carlos & Damali? A small slice of peace, perhaps? Well......not for long. It seems as if every time these two find an opportunity to wrap themselves up in one another, some new drama kicks off.
L.A. Banks has done it again. She's taken us on another white-knuckle, nail-biting, fasten your seatbelt & hang on tight roller coaster ride of action, romance, and yet another battle between the forces of good and evil. Only this time the stakes get higher and there is a lot of collateral damage on both sides.
Fans of the series will meet new characters, revisit an old foe thought to be long gone, and say tearful goodbyes to some beloved characters. An arrogant son will get his comeuppance, a mother's heart will break, and a near miss will bind our hero and heroine on a profound, new level of love and respect that even death could not diminish.

Quick, February 7, 2007 (view all comments by Quick)
In book 8 of the VHL Series, Damali and Carlos are enjoying bliss on their honeymoon. However, all good things must come to an end. Cain, the only living son of Dante' and Eve, goes mad after finding out that Carlos, someone who he deems unworthy, was chosen by Damali to be her mate. And to add salt to the wound, he finds out that Carlos was given the sword of Heru after discovering the one he has is a fake. Convinced that his mother's people won't accept him, he makes his way to hell where he is more than welcomed. Together with Lillith and the One Who Shall Remain Nameless' blessing, he conjures up a plan to not only cause havoc among the Guardian team, but to Damali and Carlos' marriage as well. How does he do it? By bringing back an enemy who has had a damaging effect on alomst everyone on the Guardian team. Cain is seeking world domination, will he succeed?

Meanwhile, every member of the Guardian team is paired up with a mate and are restless without the Neterus. However, their mini vacation is interupted when some demons show up. Then shortly afterwards, something affects the team and the Neterus must try to find a way to save them and fight the evil that's coming for them. Will all of the team survive the latest attack threat?

Oh my good-ness! I read this book and I must tell you that it has all of the elements that makes a good book: Love, action and suspense! The reason I love Mrs. Banks' books is because each one of her books is always better than the last one and believe me when I say that this book is better than the last one! There are a lot of things that happen in this book, but I won't tell what because that will be giving away too many spoilers. However, I will tell you that some loose ends concerning relationships are tied up in this installment of the VHL Series. Which ones? Well, you'll just have to read the book to find out. If you are a lover of this series then grab the tissues, because this book is going to take you a roller coaster ride. You'll laugh, cry and even get angry. So, believe me when I say that "The Wicked" is a must read!

"If You're Afraid of the Dark, Stay in the LIGHT!" Ashe!
