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.

    " I couldn't get over the dialog enough to get into the story which bums me out because I really do like Banks' books. Oh well, moving on. "

    " I rarely comment, but i must say that i really disliked this book. I felt the plot changed to often to keep up with and by the time i was 3/4 of the way through i finally gave up (very unlike me to not finish a book). I was a bit surprised, since this is my kind of book. "

    " Disappointed...a little to urban slang. The main character is ok. "

    " I had a hard time with the language Banks uses. It just was not my thing although I have heard the rest of the series is written better. "
