"Tell me your darkest fantasy," she murmured. "Tell me what you really want..."
She is a woman who lives between pleasure and pain – the pure, scintillating pleasure of the flesh and the kind of pain that has rocked the world and left it strewn with chaos set to a hip-hop beat. Her name is Damali Richards. And when she makes love to a master vampire, it changes everything in a struggle between good and evil – with the future of humanity hanging in the balance...
In L.A. Bank's astounding new Vampire Huntress novel, an unforgettable scene of seduction touches off a violent race around the world – and into a realm beneath us. For Damali, once a pawn, has been given a new, pulsating power of her own – bitten by lover and vampire extraordinaire Carlos Rivera. Between them, they know how high the stakes have risen. A powerful lord of darkness has hijacked a mystical key containing the blood of Christ. And for a world where blood runs like a river, one drop of this blood will be the end...
"The stakes have never been higher, and the excitement and tension are palpable in this installment of Banks' complex, sexy series." – Booklist
"Mixing religion with erotic horror dosed with a funky African-American beat... will delight established fans. Banks creates smokin' sex scenes." – Publishers Weekly
