Editorial Reviews

"With The Awakening, Banks solidifies her intriguing, dark series as a project worth watching." -Booklist"Again, Banks brilliantly combines spirituality, vampires, and demons (and hip hop music) into a fast-paced tale that is sure to leave fans of her first novel, Minion, panting for more but nothing seems quite as hot as the steamy, often tense relationship between Damali and Carlos...a newcomer to the vampire genre...[Banks] lends a fresh and contemporary voice." -Columbus Dispatch"[Banks is] wildly creative and invents a totally new and refreshing milieu." -Fangoria
