After the destruction of all the topside master vampires and the death and resurrection of her council-level vampire lover, Damali is called before the Council of the Neterus to answer for her actions. It is there that she discovers there are consequences even she could not foresee. She also learns that the consort of the Un-Named One, Lilith, has come up from the seventh level to set the affairs of the Dark Realms in order. However, Lilith has a hidden agenda of her own and it involves the unborn child Damali thought had been taken from her. The news devastates Damali until a cold and deadly determination leads her to map out a plan for Lilith’s destruction. An evil force beyond recognition, Damali’s newest nemesis literally brings men to their knees. But Damali will not be stopped---not even by someone as dangerously powerful as Lilith. It is a battle that spills over into the streets and involves the people Damali has sworn to protect, leaving fewer standing before it’s all over.

A hissing coo filled with gentle adoration warmed the small cluster of cells, making them glow red and begin to pulse.
 
“Oh, soon, my son,” a passionate voice whispered.

Praise for The Forbidden

Praise for L. A. Banks and the Vampire Huntress Series

 

“L. A. Banks writes a killer vamp series.”

---Sherrilyn Kenyon, New York Times bestselling author of Acheron

 

“The well-conceived and intricate rules of Banks’s vampire-inhabited world provide endless opportunities for riffs on the meaning of power and sex that will please lovers of similar...philosophical musings found in the vampire tales of Anne Rice and Laurell K. Hamilton.”

---Publishers Weekly on The Hunted

 

“A terrifying roller-coaster ride of a book.”

---Charlaine Harris on The Hunted

 

“Cutting-edge wit and plenty of urban heat flies from the pages of this quick read.”

---Philadelphia Sun on Minion
