Loved it!!!!!! How smart is LA Banks to write a series about the children of her famous Vampire Hunter books. When I read the last pages of Thirteen, I found myself getting sad that it was over until I read about the Shadow Walker and I get to read about them all and more. Love it!!!!!!!!

This was a fun read, but I would recommend for older teens due to some the the language and theme. I liked most of the story line, but not so much of the teenage love stuff. (Twilight)The story as a whole was filled with plenty of action and fun. May this bring as much success as the the Neteru collection did.

Didnt know this book was out until i had a look on LA Banks website, hunted it down and thought i would give it a try. WOW what a fantastic new series to get my teeth in to. After the Vampire Huntress series ended i didnt think anything could match it, but if going by the first book this is gonna be great. Its a must buy and cant wait for the second book in the series, Thank you LA Banks xx

I first read a short story from L. A. Banks after purchasing “Death’s Excellent Vacation” last year. I needed something to read while on vacation during the summer with my family. I came across L. A. Banks’s story and could not stop researching her online to find other stories by her to read. I read all of the Huntress series before Thanksgiving and was delighted when I came across this book on her website. It was available for download and I just had to have it. It was a really refreshing continual flow of the story from the parents to the kids. I really enjoy the characters and wish HBO would bring them to life one day. It is a very magical story that reflect the real world that we live in as far as the many different believes and nationalities in the world today. The paranormal favor is just a welcome trick and spice to the whole picture.

Ok so we who are in the know know Mama Banks throws down. No matter which series you read it is always satisfying meal. That being said sad as I was to see the VHL series go I am now glad it did because this new light is just the right hors d'oeuvres. Just the right start for this unfortunate 3 hopefully soon to be increased to 7 course meal. Not only do we get a small taste of the old gang which was well I will just say a wonderful emotional read for me at least I loved it u get to see the newbeies coming into there own and it was refreshing I am hoping to follow this gang until they grow right on up and become the onl heads in the group. I am so looking forward to Shadow Seekers can't wait. Well done LA Well Done....

A lovely continuation to the Vampire Huntress Legend Series. L.A. Banks introduces you to the kids of the characters we loved so much. The book was well written, had lots of action, and budding romances that you just can't wait to see how they will shake out in the books to come. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Wow! The main character, Sarah is likeable,and begins to grow on you as she discovers her way in school, her worth, and her powers. But she isn't the only interesting character, this book has many and they are all given just enough depth for you to either like them or not. There is never a dull moment, although there is a lot of information given regarding the world that is being built. This world includes a multitude of races, mixes of paranormal beings gifts/curses in many of the characters, with a bit of mystery, touch of romance, and lots of drama thrown in. The characters do use slang, which is not typical for some YA books, and this one fits the kids perfectly.

Okay, I so feel like this book was a steal for just $3.99. This book would be about 398 pages if it was in print and if you like Vampire, paranormal books, and demon slayer books for adults or teens, you will love this.
