Our favorite Neteru duo is back with their Guardian family....intent on locating the Antichrist and stopping Armageddon. With the help of Yonnie---Carlos's brother, who is acting as a double agent on the dark side--the team is able to gain valuable intel on what is going on with Lucifer and his dark agents in the bowels of Hell. What they have discovered is that councilman Sebastian has used his talents for reanimation to bring back from the dead two of the most evil women in history to fill council seats---giving the Guardian team even more to deal with. But with the help of the Kings and Queens on high, the team is once again able to stem the tide of evil that seems determined to take over the world. Will they be able to find the Antichrist before his birth? Or will Lilith and Lucifer prevail?
This tale shows all once again that Ms. Banks is the reigning Queen of Dark Literature. This novel has been somewhat relieved from the overuse of outdated slang (although, the cliche "fair exchange is not robbery" is still repeatedly used. Why, I must ask???), giving this novel the extra shine it deserves. And I must add...if her affinity for dark tales begins to wane, Ms. Banks most assuredly has a career penning erotica. This series contains some of the hottest sex scenes that I have ever read. A must-read for fans of the series.
This, being the 10th in the VHLS Series has captured us again! Damali, Carlos and her fellow Guardians are thrust into Armageddon this time! This time it's for real! The Guardians are armed, but not like before. Now there are more Guardians who are gathering to help our Neteru fight the Hellion Lilith and whatever she brings forth from Hell! Now it's different! Now Damali, Carlos and the Guardians have something on their side that they were not even aware of, a sweet innocent child who has powers beyond their belief! This time it's serious, this time it's for keeps! Take another ride, it will surely blow your mind!
The Neteru squad was trying to get a little well-deserved rest when out of Hell a daywalker makes his presence known and that's just the beginning....Lucifer gets all gussied up and struts into Church like it's HIS house (just cross yourselves and say Amen--okaaay?)....Baddies we never expected have been resurrected to mate with new daywalker councilmen....A child sees & hears things most children have no concept of....Entities that we wondered about make an appearance in the Neteru Council of Kings & Queens....Biblical seals are opened....Oh, and let me also mention that the Anti-Christ exists even after the battle at Masada....
LA Banks takes the Vampire huntress to a new and deadly level in "The Darkness" Our team of heros faces the ultimate challenge as the are assaulted by new stronger enemies. I love how the author keeps raising the bar with this series as well as keeping the action fresh and exciting. Not only dose this book contain the action fans love it also has the steam and heat fans of Ms Banks other novels have come to love her for. If you are a die hard fan of the VHL series or just looking for a fun exciting read this is the book for you.
This is the beginning of the end of an awesome series. The final trilogy of books is dubbed the "Armageddon Finale". The Neteru guardian team is doing it big. Power is concentrating for both the Light and the Dark sides. With reinforcements arriving from multiple realms and backups from various local teams the Neteru team is quite literally and figuratively globe-hopping to fight evil.
There is never a dull moment as even a relaxing meal can turn into a fight for life and death, darkness and light. This book doesn't just tie up loose odds and ends, but continues to move the story forward. With the introduction and promise of new villains and heroes one is left wondering...is this really the beginning of the end...or is this really just the beginning?
I love Lonnie. He's a trip. He is so real. I have met men like him who talk some straight smack. I can't help but love him and hope the best for him. Val had me dying laughing when they were at the dinner table. Inez mama is a straight trip.
Mrs. Bank's bringing these new characters to the forefront added extra value to the entire story. Y'all I am almost through with this series. I started reading it two months ago. I am on a roll.
I love L.A. Banks' Vampire Huntress series. It's so original and puts a new spin to the supernatural world. I love her use of religion through out the series. I have learned a lot that I didn't know before. If you haven't read the other books first, you really do need to read them in order, or at least I think so. You will love the series just as much as you do any one book.
