"Devoted Fans Will Not Be Disappointed!"
This is the fifth book of the Series.
Back history: When Damali turned twenty-one, she gained
her full powers as the Neteru Queen and Vampire Huntress.
Carlos, her longtime friend strays to the dark side and
becomes a Master Vampire. Damali and Carlos are on
opposite sides, but their bond to each other remains
unbroken. They marry within the Dark Realm and pay dearly
for their indiscretion.
In the opening of The Forbidden, the Guardian team is
deeply wounded. Their faith and confidence is shattered
in the last battle. Damali is suffering mentally from
Carlos' death and the loss of their child. She can't seem
to pull herself out of her depression. The Light summons
her to the Council of the Neterus. Damali meets the first
Neteru, Eve and here she learns about the other Neterus
before her. Damali is punished for recklessness and poor
sense of judgment when it comes to her relationship with
Carlos. She is stripped of her weapon, and will have to
earn her place again. Damali will have to reunite her
Guardian team and regain their favor and trust. They
resurrect Carlos, but the Light has changed him, making
him unsure where his place should be.
While Damali and Carlos discover where their destiny will
lead them, they must fight their enemies. Satan's wife,
Lillith has stolen something precious. At all cost, she
must be stopped before Armageddon is started. A vampire
is sent to wipe out Damali and the Guardian team, but she
has her own secret agenda.
Ms. Banks spins a tale revolving around religion and
mythology with a butt-kicking team of vampire/demon
fighters to keep evil under control. Every book gives you
more insight to the world of Neterus, Guardians, and the
underworld. Devoted fans will not be disappointed.
I highly recommend a new reader to start from the
beginning so not to miss anything. It will be well worth
