Vampire Huntress Legend, Book 1
I hadn't really been too interested in reading anything by LA Banks until I came across the Neteru Academy book 1 so since this came up in my good reads group, I was more apt to give it a shot. Damali Richards is a Neteru-to-be and has a group of guardians around her who protect her like the baby sister. At 20 years old, and turning 21 in a few days, she has powers filling her body that she can't control and her 'mother' Marlene won't tell her about until nearly the end of the book. Carlos Rivera is a latino drug dealer who ends up being the vampire assigned to bring her in for a ritual ... To get her pregnant and create vampires that can walk during the day.
I think my only gripe, not only about this book, but I had the same gripe about the first Dark Swan book ... Why must the strong females always need to be impregnated? Whatever ... The book was actually pretty good although I felt like a lot of the conversations were so long and drawn out. They could have been cut down and simply told as part of the story instead of dialogue that I had no interest in reading, but had to in order to understand things.
This is the first book in the series so they tell you many things that you need to know in order to progress and usually that makes it not very fun to read. Yet and still, I finished it in about 2 days and am looking forward to book 2 which I will probably start tomorrow.
