The balance could not be easily tipped; their fight was vigilant. But just as the forces of evil had human helpers to reinforce the negative spheres of soul-killing influence, the forces of good had The Guardians… those that held the line no matter what challenges befell them. They would not allow The Light to be extinguished. And from those twelve armies came The Covenant—one from each Guardian Council, twelve members in all, the bravest of the brave, the wisest of the wise, the keepers of the faith and the knowledge between worlds.
Only The Covenant could foretell the coming of The Neteru, although they would never know whether this super-being mortal would come as male or female. All they could do was to prepare a special Neteru Guardian Team as they searched for the prophesied infant. Such an assignment is the highest honor bestowed upon a Guardian Council, whose mighty task was to ensure that the once every thousand year visitation of a Balance Swaying Force of Light, a Neteru, would be secreted away from evil until old enough to fight… but first, before they could protect this mortal, they would have to find the baby—before evil could destroy it.
The Legend: Vampire Huntress.
Twelve Holy, seasoned, individuals from the original twelve tribes of the land, from every corner of the earth, representing the widespread positive faiths, are called within a human lifetime to take up the torch, to hold the light, to stand watch and keep vigil in wait for the coming of The Neteru—the huntress or hunter. They have been standing watch from the beginning of time, and in this era, a Neteru has come, a young woman, who spans two millennia… and her womb can host either good or evil, but the choice is ultimately hers. As her ripening to faith and flesh dawns, she must be guided, protected, and then must learn to stand on her own.
The Wicked (Vampire Huntress Legend, book 8) by L A Banks
Anointed with the Divine mission to protect The Neteru, this elite category of spiritual warriors were chosen to surround their charge with heightened extrasensory awareness, superior physical and inner strength, unmatched courage, keen battle strategy, and unparalleled skill. Six realms of darkness mirror the six realms of light, with the seventh depth hosting the power source of all that is evil… just as the seventh level Above hosts the Ultimate Power Source of The Universe—The Almighty.
Sins create soul weight, dragging it down the multiple caverns within The Pit. Hope, Faith, Love, forgiveness, a fervent request for redemption, remove the weight, uplifts the spirit, and allows the soul to soar to blend in with other spirits of The Light. This is why the choices made in The Gray Zone are so critical. No angel in Heaven, not one Warrior of Light, or one spirit of lightness ever wants to lose a soul to the weight of unredeemed sin.
Thus, the battle that is waged, one soul at a time, is mighty. This all-female council has strong women images we recognize from history, including Eve the first and Joan of Arc. We also see old friends and loves return; as well as, say good-bye to a beloved character.
Here is an account of her legend. But come nightfall, she hunts vampires and demons—predators that people tend to dismiss as myth or fantasy.
But Damali and her Guardian team cannot afford such delusions, especially now, when a group of rogue vampires have been killing the artists of Warriors of Light and their rival, Blood Music. Banks has written over 42 novels and contributed to 23 novellas. She is a full-time writer living and working in Philadelphia. NOTE: Leslie passed away a few years ago to cancer at the height of her career and shortly after giving a speech at the White House.
The Wicked (Vampire Huntress Legend Series #8)
Banks, Tor. But come nightfall, she hunts vampires and demons —predators that people tend to dismiss as myth or fantasy. Strange attacks have also erupted within the club drug-trafficking network and drawn the attention of the police. These killings are a bit out of the ordinary, even for vampires.
No neat puncture marks in the neck to show where the life's blood has been sucked from the body. These bodies have been mutilated beyond recognition, indicating a blood lust and thirst for destruction that surpasses any Damali has encountered before. Damali soon discovers that behind these brutal murders is the most powerful vampire she has ever met, and this seductive beast is coming for her next. But his unholy intentions have also drawn the focus of other hellish dark forces.
Soon Damali finds herself being pulled deeper into the vast and horrifying vampire world.
