Vampire Huntress Legends

L.A. Banks

St. Martin's Paperbacks

A battle is 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 huntress; she is the millennium Neteru, a woman so powerful that the vampire world is about to start a war-one that threatens to spread onto her streets-in order to possess her...

Fallon Nuit, a rogue vampire who is one of the most powerful Damali has ever encountered, has allied himself with the deadly Amanthra demons in order to claim her. But the Vampire Council has plans for her as well. And now an unlikely variable has entered the equation: an ex-lover turned master vampire with an agenda of his own. Damali must risk trusting him once more if they are to survive.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Awakening

"With The Awakening, Banks solidifies her intriguing, dark series as a project worth watching."--Booklist

"Again, Banks brilliantly combines spirituality, vampires, and demons (and hip hop music) into a fast-paced tale that is sure to leave fans of her first novel, Minion, panting for more but nothing seems quite as hot as the steamy, often tense relationship between Damali and Carlos...a newcomer to the vampire genre...[Banks] lends a fresh and contemporary voice." --Columbus Dispatch

"[Banks is] wildly creative and invents a totally new and refreshing milieu." --Fangoria
