The Dark Realms are taking cover after an angel onslaught from On High. The Anti-Christ has been injured and the fourth Biblical seal has been broken. Yonnie and Val, a strange combination of a daywalker and an angel hybrid, have joined Damali and Carlos’s team. And the two new Council Level vamps, Elizabeth Bathory and Lucrezia Borgia, are still in recovery from their last mission…


Seething in the underworld is the Unnamed One, so furious that he’s bringing the battle topside, unleashing a full-frontal assault on mankind for the offenses committed by the Vampire Huntress team. Now Damali and Carlos must address serious human casualties and collateral damage—all while the vampire councilman, Nuit, rebuilds Blood Music to become more than a record label, but a media brainwashing empire for the dark lord…

“L.A. Banks writes a killer vamp series.”—Sherrilyn Kenyon

“Each book in this. . .series gets harder and harder to put down.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews


Publishers Weekly

Though this 11th installment in Banks' Vampire Huntress Legend tale contains many interesting references to esoteric religious mysteries and features titillating S&M sex scenes, it will be difficult for the uninitiated to give a fig about the multitudes of angelic characters who sit around wishing for non-gore spattered clothes and whining about their fallen companions as the apocalypse swirls around them. Most of the action is in Hell, where Lucifer and his wife, Lilith, are feverishly working to protect the Anti-Christ and bring about the end of days. Lucifer's right hand man, Fallon Nuit, is successfully using his multimedia empire to flood the airwaves with bad mojo, while Elizabeth Bathory gorily resurrects her husband, Count Dracula, and then bleeds and moans through some physically improbable sex with him and Lucrezia Borgia, Nuit's wife. Though a lot of ass gets kicked, there's so little forward momentum that the story becomes a soul-sucking drag.
