"A Tale of Passion, Mythology, War and Love!"

This the eight book in the Vampire Huntress Series

Damali Richards, Neturu has married her soul mate, Carlos Rivera, ex-vampire now Neturu also. They are enjoying their honeymoon when there is an energy surge from the dark realm, causing Carlos and the other members of the team, who have vampire blood running through their veins to act aggressively toward their soul mates. While Carlos and Damali visit their councils of Neturus to find out what is going on, the Guardian team is visited by creatures who have escaped from Nod, claiming allegiance to the light.

The team finds out that Cain, the son of Eve has chosen the dark side wanting to take his father's throne and head the Vampire Council. He wants to destroy Carlos and take Damali as his own. He enlists Lilith's help and brings back a slain foe of the Neturus. Eve is forced to make a difficult choice when it comes to dealing with her son, while Adam will do anything to protect Eve and spare her the grief Cain has wrought upon them all. Even if it means going to hell and back.

We find out the truth of what Damali is and what her destiny holds. There are some losses for the Light, characters we have learned to love and few new characters that will sacrifice it all for the side of good. The Guardian team learns from their past mistakes, each growing to be a better person for it. They also learn more about themselves and the gifts they have to offer. I especially love the heart rendering relationship between Rider and Tara that goes beyond the grave; the sweet and tender bond between Dan and Heather and their first powerful encounter with love; and how Shabazz and Marlene have history to overcome, but find their way back to each other. Damali and Carlos' relationship grows stronger as they learn to forgive, trust, respect and love each other more deeply. Ms. Banks always installs the value of love and family, which will pull at your heartstrings. Fans of this series will definitely enjoy this story as they cry, laugh and root for the side of good.
