LM Preston reviews “Minion” by L.A. Banks

Book Blurb for Minion – Vampire Huntress Legend Series by L.A. Banks

I’ve always loved fresh new outlooks on vamps and Minion by L.A. Banks delivers. The main character Damali, you meet in the beginning as a baby, with a destiny foretold. Fast forward to the future and you meet a street smart girl, who’s in a band just trying to make it. Little does she know, her big music deal turns out to be a cover for Vampire Hunters. She finds out that she is a Neteru, a genetically created Vampire Hunter. She and her team hunt vamps in the inner city and the cast of the team is multi-cultural, just like the vamps they chase. Unfortunately though, there is a new breed of vampires that are a lot harder to kill. These vampires made a deal with a demon and are not only vampires but possessed. There is a mild love interest in this book and some seductive scenes with a vampire who’s not her lover. Damili is an enjoyable character who comes into her own throughout the book. The myriad of cultures that work together for the greater good of mankind is also refreshing. If you are looking for a new take on Buffy, check this one out.
