Book Description

11 Nov 2010 VAMPIRE HUNTRESS LEGEND

A battle is brewing in the Underworld and at the centre of it all is Damali Richards. Damali is a vampire huntress, but not just any huntress - she is the Millenium: a vampire huntress so powerful the vampire world is prepared to go to war over who should possess her.

Fallon Nuit, a rogue vampire, in league with demons, is determined to claim her but then an ex-lover turned vampire enters the fray. But Damali is not about to let anyone, or anything, fight over her without having her own say.

3.0 out of 5 stars slightly better than Minion, the first. 12 Nov 2010
By Rebecca
Format:Paperback
I found this, the second book of the Vampire Huntress series, slightly better than Minion, the first. However, some of the same things that bothered me about that book came to surface in this one too.

I'm glad I hung onto Minion because The Awakening picked up right where that left off, and I had to reread certain portions of that first book to reacquaint myself with some of the things that went down already. I don't think the author did a very good job of allowing this book to stand on it's own. Granted, series such as this are meant to be read in order anyway, but like Laurell K. Hamilton does in her Anita books, if she needs to refer to an incident from a previous book, she'll usually provide enough additional detail so that new readers can continue reading, albeit with a little less knowledge and detail than someone who's been reading the series in order. This was not the case here; if you didn't read the previous book, and remember all of it's little nuances, you're going to need to before starting on this one. As it stands, I still had to refer back to things from book one since I'd read it 8 months prior to this one.

The story line is still interesting enough to hold interest, and because Banks doesn't go into detail on each of the main characters in this book like she did in Minion, we don't have as many passages that drag on too long like in the first book, though they're certainly not gone completely. At times while reading, I felt that maybe the writing was done in discrete parts, not necessarily in sequence, since sometimes the scenes didn't seem to blend transparently as they could've.
