It has been quite some time, years, since I read this series. However, my objective was to finish this 13 book series, and try to see how her werewolf series is. I did try her angel's series, about 2 books back in 2012, and strongly disliked it. It didn't even feel or read like her writing style. Anyhoo, this book started off okay, then bored me, until the ending. Of course, girl meets boy, and then somehow they end up together regardless of their preference(s), meaning one is a vamp and other i ...more

The Darkness is the tenth installment of the Vampire Huntress Legend series and picks up some months after the last battle at Masada where the anti-Christ chrysalis made a death-defying escape. In this episode, Lucifer becomes more active when he hatches a plan to ensure his heir matures in an optimal environment. Quite naturally, this involves creating hell on earth and forcing the Biblical prophesies leading to Armageddon to come to fruition. Rewarding Lillith for her role in bringing forth hi ...more

This is one of my favorites in the series, I love that the The Neteru Council of Kings and Queens play a more active role with Guiding our young Neterus and giving them some much need time away from the team.. I love that you get see more of the guradians and their spouses interact and we get a few little surprises as well. I was not a fan Vampire books, however this series is Awesome! I loved every one of these books. they are well written, have a great plot (the never end struggle of Good vers ...more

“L.A. Banks latest book The Darkness finds the gang in the Armageddon days. Seals are being broken. Carlos and Damali are trying to find the anti-Christ so the can put a stop to it before it can rise to power. Nuit and Sebastian talk Lilith into letting them have mates and making them Council Seat Members. Yonnie is walking a very thin line trying to help his brother Carlo's out this time. All in All I thought the book very good.”

A little more intense than what I was looking for right now, but I thought the story line of this one was good. Sometimes I can get bogged down with Banks' writing, but this one moved along pretty well. I'm getting ready to see how this all turns out - I think I've got 2 more books in the series to read until I'll find out what happens.
Another intense, action packed novel in this series. Something was missing for me in this one; almost like we spent too much time on the darkside, I feel like I didn't get enough of the banter I've come to love between the Guardian team. Still a good read and look forward to finding out what happens in the next book!

As always Ms Banks does not disappoint. I can't wait to see how she ends the series in the next 2 books. I am also so happy with Yonnie's part in this one. This series is must read for anyone who loves a good vs evil epic.

The action really becomes deeper, more serious, and more sinister in these last few books. I couldn't put them down, because I was worried about main characters dying. I was a part of their family. I am such a nerd! Haha.

As many times as I have read and re-read this series, I never tire of the excitement or the power of L. A. Banks words. Her style and her abilities are truly missed. She was blessed with her skills. A truly awesome book chasing the Antichrist!!!!

I liked it, I think it could have been without about 100 pages though. Of course I'm on to the next one, The Shadows.

Ik dacht al dat ik Banks al eens had geprobeerd te lezen. Nu weet ik het weer. Het is me te bijbels.

The story, her level of detail, the depth of her world and mythology - just amazing. I hope I still have this series somewhere because I am in the mood to reread it! It was that good.
