We Were not Forsaken Aug. 25 2006
By K. Kimbrough - Published on
Format: Paperback
In the seventh installment of LA Banks' Vampire Huntress Legend series, we learn that youth, arrogance and the challenges of love have a greater consequence to the world when you are this century's neteru couple. Damali, Carlos and the whole Guardian team are back in The Forsaken.

In the latest installment, Carlos has a difficult time adjusting to his neteru status that, consequently, took he and his team members through great changes--especially Damali. In The Forsaken, the fallout of his inability to adjust has spilled over into his relationship with Damali. Unbeknownest to them, their problems have been somewhat orchestrated by Lilith who has been given a second chance by The Unnamed One to seek revenge. Lilith brings forth a powerful being that was once banished into a forsaken land, and he possess everything that can bring Damali to her knees--physically, mentally and spiritually--and Carlos to self destruction.

As a fan of this series, this installment is among the top two for me. Banks uses this book to show the vulnerability and immaturity, of our young neteru couple, Damali and Carlos, as well as their true strength. She has made them human with the weight of the world, literally, on their shoulders. It is awesome reading about them as they maneuver through life and surreal events with real emotions. Their struggle with pride and impulsive choices are perpetuated by peer advice that is understandable but not necessarily practical. The guidance and correction that they received from their elders had me talking to the book saying, "That's what elders are supposed to do and say." I enjoyed how Banks takes this supernatural life and grounds it in real possibilities. Despite the fact that the characters have out-of-this-world strengths and abilities, you can still relate to them.

I also enjoyed the groundwork and foreshadowing that she set up in The Forsaken for the next of the series. I am highly anticipating the next book. I bought this book the day it came out but it sat, unread, for two weeks. Once I started, I was mad that I did not read it the first day. I just hope the follow-up equals the excitement for me that this one generated.

The epic continues... Aug. 9 2006
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Vampire Council's throne is vacant, Dante, the Council Chairman was beheaded. The Un-Named One himself wants revenge. Lilith, his consort, failed him and now his son is banished to the Sea of Perpetual Agony; he plans to destroy her first. But, Lilith, always the vampire vixen, has a plan. She begs for her existence and promises to avenge the Neterus, Carlos Rivera and Damali Richards, and restore the throne to its former glory.

The Guardian team has relocated to the West Coast. Carlos and Damali have been apexing for a month, wallowing in lustful release. But Damali, in a jealous rage over Carlos and a female team member, has flat lined on Carlos. Both of them need to drop kick their premature super-egos to another realm and focus, they are dividing the team.

The Dilemma: 'The tsunami' caused the earth to wobble on its axis in the east, time stopped and the earth's clock is off by milliseconds. A dimensional rip was created in the fold in the air, like a torn curtain. The second male Neteru created, who had been banished to a forsaken land, walked through the opening in the veil. This entity is the muse in Damali's music, and her music is the medium that brings him through the rip. It is the one entity strong enough to challenge Carlos for her love, and worse, could cause an adverse affect on the doors of Heaven. With the stoppage of time, the auras of two competing male Neterus piercing the universe, and entities traveling between dimensions, it is nearly impossible to decipher 'Light' from 'Dark'. The female Neteru could lose her heart, her soul and even her life.

L.A. Banks has intensified the vampire huntress series. The in-depth research, the imaginative juices, and the climatic battle of titans will have readers lodged between two prolific battalions. Without warning this supernatural adventure has your adrenaline pumping, your heart flexing and your instincts preparing to do battle. Banks allows readers to travel from the Seventh realm below to realms far above top-side and still maintain their equilibrium. THE FORSAKEN, book seven, is all that; fierce, creative, regenerative, and vividly three dimensional. This one moves the series closer to epic proportions. Awesome!

For God's sake Damali...SHUT UP! Feb. 20 2007
By Don - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If Damali would ONLY shut up! Could any author possibly write worse dialog? I doubt it. Don't get me wrong, the action and sex in the books are great, but when Damali starts that crap about her music, her wants and desires, the men, the other people in her camp, and when she starts that crap with Marlene...well, just skip a couple of pages. You won't miss anything. BORING! Then Marlene starts her Jemima talkin' Whoo girfrin! Oh, Lawdy. The absolute indignity. Give us the Devil, Carlos, The Chairman, Lilith, Yonnie...and kill EVERYBODY else off. Please!

Once Again Jan. 1 2007
By M. Wood - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading L.A. Banks series. Each one leaves me wanting more. I love the way she weaves history and nature into her plots. Her descriptions are phenomenal! This book is really good, the introduction of Cain was excellent. I loved the ether world from where he came and how everything lived solely off of energies. Very interesting. I think these series should be a movie, if written correctly they could surely take off and start an even bigger following for Damali and Carlos.

CARLOS HAS COMP.......!! Aug. 22 2006
By Dana Y. Bowles - Published on
Format: Paperback
A little competition for our Latin hottie with the long teeth in Ms. Banks latest installment of her vampire huntress series. In this tale, 2004's catastrophic tsunami actually stopped time for a moment, caused the earth to wobble on its axis, and formed a rip in the wall that separates worlds....allowing Damali's muse to escape from the Land of Nod. Damali has never thought of a physical being influencing the creation of her music...until she meets Cain. Tall, beautiful, and with a body carved in granite, Damali begins to question if Carlos is what she really wants...and does Cain represent the Darkness or the Light?

Meanwhile, Lilith is busy trying to make amends with her husband...and we all know who that is.....after the death of the Chairman at the hands of the Neterus. Lilith must make set about once again causing death, destruction and mental unrest...amidst the Neterus and the Guardian team. Decisions must be made...Carlos or Cain? Is the latter representing goodness....or something much darker? Fans of this series will keep the pages turning, eager to find out.....
