At first i didn't trust Christine when she came to talk to Dan as an angel. I thought she was Lilith, the Devil's wife and the chairman's lover. My favorite characters in this particular volume were everybody on the guardian with the exception of Damali and Marlene.
But in the end everything went back to being normal, Cain was back in his world. Carlos and Damali got back together and ended up doing a proper wedding under the protection of the Light. Jun 12, Tracey rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is definitely my favorite book of the series so far. The introduction of Cain took this story to a whole other level. I was always team Carlos but last book, he fucked up bad. So when Damali was getting seduced by the new big bad, I was all for it. Carlos deserved to feel all the pain he put his woman through.
The best scene has to go to Tara though. She told our Neteru some things I've been thinking for a while but she is brutal, fearless, and awesome in her delivery. I hope to see more of This is definitely my favorite book of the series so far. I hope to see more of her in the next book. Feb 22, Tiffiane rated it did not like it. I will not be finishing this series. The first 5 books were fantastic and book 6 started a downward slope into a complete mess.
I had high hopes book 7 would be better but it just wasn't.
I am very disappointed in these last 2 books I attempted to read because L. Banks could've done so much better after the elaborate set up in book 5, and yet she didn't. May 30, Mzpastrychef rated it it was amazing. You have to give this series a chance.. It brings in elements of good and evil, heaven and hell, God and the devil.. Give this series a chance before you just say forget it May 21, Erin rated it it was amazing. This series got me through an entire summer.
When I had to snap back into reality it took me a second to catch back up. I could have spent all of my time fighting evil in this series. I could NOT put the book down.
This is the MOST intense book so far in the series. Intense revelations were made in this book. Dec 11, Zen rated it it was ok Shelves: For now, just read the title and you will know where this series currently stands with me. Jul 05, Mary Whidden rated it did not like it. Just couldn't make myself read these anymore. That's why it scored so low. I couldn't finish the book. Jan 22, Nanci L. I'm afraid this book does not impress me much. I just can't get into it somehow. Aug 27, Takiyah Dudley rated it liked it. I really couldn't side with damali I mean I could but I couldn't, and I figured she should have known what was going on long before she had it told to her by the other queens.
But other than that it's as great as the other ones and I will continue to read the series. Feb 16, Adrienna rated it it was ok Shelves: What has always impressed me the most about these series, is that she can write some kick-butt action scenes which I have a hard time doing and sets the tone in romance close to erotic scenes.
Moreover, even though this is supposed to be about vamps, she knows how to bring biblical concepts with a twist in the storyline. When reading about this sensual being, later figuring out it was Cain, before the explanation came on page , and speaking on Neterus and before time, then first man and wom What has always impressed me the most about these series, is that she can write some kick-butt action scenes which I have a hard time doing and sets the tone in romance close to erotic scenes.
When reading about this sensual being, later figuring out it was Cain, before the explanation came on page , and speaking on Neterus and before time, then first man and woman--I was astonished. Then somehow how Cain and Carlos are brothers in some weird kind of way. I slayed my younger brother, Abel, whose name begins with the letter A, which carries the numerical property of one, like Adam's Both destined to be Neterus, but made several grievous choices along the way. This is stuff that will make you go hmmm or go over the top of your head. Sometimes I wonder how she does that!
Seeing Eve aside from Lilith, Dante who was supposed to be the serpent in Eden doing the bidding for Satan, is what is making me want to carry on reading. I pick up some insight from her writing, word choices, and style as an author but see she writes at least , words; her books be long. Surprised her editor doesn't cut out a lot This book is pages Sadly, there was so much writing that was boring! There were only about a fourth of this book that had some interest. So I gave it an okay read. Jul 01, Kristi rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I enjoyed this book.
Banks keeps improving as she goes. Looking beyond the flaws of slang I'm black and I don't talk like her characters and every black person I know doesn't talk like this either - end rant I still enjoyed the intent of the book. I loved this book and am looking forward to the next in the series. I read a lot and I liked visiting this world and greatly appreciated seeing my I enjoyed this book.
I read a lot and I liked visiting this world and greatly appreciated seeing my face reflected back at me even if it is some what stereotypical view of "Black" or urban people. Any author could benefit by including many voices and experiences of different background into their novels which is what Banks has done.
Or taking on the least traveled path or even the left-of or right-of the middle path will bring readers a better experience. But only if it enriches and moves the plot along and not to say hey I love "Black, White, Indian, Asian" people too. Banks great but flawed take in writing is a beginning and I hope to see more authors take risks like this and create great stories for fellow readers of different life experiences to take to these new paths they have forged.

The Forsaken (Vampire Huntress Legends) [L. A. Banks] on bahana-line.com The Forsaken (Vampire Huntress Legend series Book 7) and millions of other. Editorial Reviews. From Publishers Weekly. Weird energy is going down, and demon-killing Book 7 of 12 in Vampire Huntress Legend Series (12 Book Series).
If I wanted to read porn, I would buy Playboy. But I'm white, so, hey, maybe people talk like this all the time and I just don't hear it, but it sounds contrived to me.
I much prefer Rachel Morgan's witch character by Kim Harrison if we are going to deal with vampires, witches, demons and the like. Yes, take a chance on this book. For me it was slow in to getting to the whole plot of the story. But, also I just happen to run across this book and bought it. So, I'm reading it out of order in a series of her other books from the Vampire Huntress Legend. I end up doing this a lot of the time. Guess I need to use the library more often But, once I got into the book it was a good read; after all of the action started taking place. I think if I ever find any other by L.
Banks, I will give them a chance. I'm not one t For me it was slow in to getting to the whole plot of the story. I'm not one to write very many reviews; mostly I liked the book or hated the book Jun 26, Necia rated it it was amazing. This was a really good book to me. It drew me back into the series.
Damali and Carlos have been to hell and back, figuratively and literally. I like the fact that although both of them have these supernatural powers, they both are very human, and easily make human mistakes. Especially the mistakes that happen in relationships. I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of this story develops. Sep 22, Jennifer rated it it was amazing.
