    There are no words...

    That can truly express her impact on my life. To the Peterson/Banks family you are in my thoughts and prayers. She created worlds full of wonder, family, love, courage and passion. Without her I dont think I would have ever found the strength to delve into the innermost part of myself and share my own stories. She gave me a world of fantasy that I could relate to and for that I am forever thankful. I will miss her.

    Missing You

    My heart breaks for the Banks family and we have truly lost a great storyteller in L.A.Banks. She was a woman of faith that brought that love and understanding to her characters and made them real.

    R.I.P. Ms. Banks

    I was so looking forward to a new series by Ms. Banks. I'm sure this book will be as great as her other. I was devastated to hear of her passing. R.I.P. L.A. Banks/Leslie Banks

    Conquer the Dark affirms the incredible fantasist talent of L.A. Banks who passed away in August

    Celeste Jackson recently learned her schizophrenia was not DNA driven mental illness, but instead her hallucinations are real as her gene pool makes her a Remnant angelic-human hybrid. Her guardian angel Azrael is not crazier than her as she thought between alcohol and cigarettes but a bona find angel (see Surrender the Dark).

    Celeste needs a respite after battling demons including one that possessed her now dead boyfriend. However, there is no rest for the weary when Azrael's brother Bath Kol envisions what will happen when an ancient tome containing arcane power to destroy the world vanishes from a concealed spot in an Egyptian tomb. In the wrong hands of the Fallen this means the end is now for the small angelic unit and humanity unless one of the last three hybrids Celeste can prevent the catastrophe. With Azrael as her sidekick, Celeste begins a suicide mission to retrieve the book of death.

    This is superb urban fantasy with a secondary but critical romantic subplot as Azrael's attraction to his ward could cost him his wings if he follows his heart by choosing the female he loves over mankind. Readers will enjoy the second battle between angels and the remnants vs. demons as humanity's extinction or existence depends on a recovering schizophrenic addict. Conquer the Dark affirms the incredible fantasist talent of L.A. Banks who passed away in August.

    RIP... terribly sad... LA Banks

    Hopefully, please, someone continue LA Banks work. Her books are truly a blessing to read and my heart breaks for her family and all her fans. I have never read another author that I connect with more than Banks! -Blessings
