After the destruction of all the topside master vampires and the death and resurrection of her council-level vampire lover, Damali is called before the Council of the Neterus to answer for her actions. It is there that she discovers there are consequences even she could not foresee. She also learns that the consort of the Un-Named One, Lilith, has come up from the seventh level to set the affairs of the Dark Realms in order. However, Lilith has a hidden agenda of her own and it involves the unborn child Damali thought had been taken from her. The news devastates Damali until a cold and deadly determination leads her to map out a plan for Lilith's destruction. An evil force beyond recognition, Damali's newest nemesis literally brings men to their knees. But Damali will not be stopped---not even by someone as dangerously powerful as Lilith. It is a battle that spills over into the streets and involves the people Damali has sworn to protect, leaving fewer standing before it's all over.
All the necessary elements-legend, leather, lust-come together in the fifth book in Banks's Vampire Huntress series (The Bitten, etc.). Enter Lilith, deadly, dangerously sexy, and on a mission from the Big Bad; the Guardians have their work cut out for them. When the forces of evil take the child right from former pop star Damali Richards's womb, she vows revenge-and along with her lover (Carlos Rivera), Father Patrick, Marlen, and the rest of the warriors of the darkness, she sets off on a journey to destroy Lilith and her minions-and to save the world from those who would destroy it first. Mixing religion and New Age philosophy with Buffy-style butt-kicking and a distinctly African-American flavor, Banks spins a head-bendingly complex tale of passion, mythology, war and love that lasts till the grave-and beyond. New readers may find it a bit bewildering, but devoted fans should relish this new chapter in a promising series. Agent, Manie Baron. Author tour.
