In L.A.Banks’ The Awakening there is a vampire war 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 Vampire Huntress, she is the millennium Neteru. A woman so potentially powerful that the vampire world is about to invoke a bloody battle that threatens to spill over onto her streets in order to posses her. It’s just a matter of who will get to her first.
Fallon Nuit, a rogue vampire, is one of the most powerful Damali has ever encountered and he has allied himself with the deadly Amanrath demons in order to claim her. But the Vampire Council has plans for her as well. And now an unlikely variable has entered into the equation, an ex-lover now turned vampire with an agenda of his own. And she must risk trusting him once more if they are to survive.
Praise for Minion, the first book in The Vampire Huntress Legends:
”[Banks is] wildly creative and invents a totally new and refreshing milieu.”
”Cutting edge wit and plenty of urban heat flies from the pages of this quick read.”

”Blade meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. . .A pulsating blood-booster.”
”With an exciting premise and a cliffhanger ending, this first book in a new series packs a powerful punch.”
