I'm excited to share the news that Deliverance, the third book in the Mortal Path series, has received the


"Deliverance is wonderfully unpredictable, full of breathlessly exciting action scenes. Readers will be hooked till the very last page, and then will rush to pick up the others in the Mortal Path series." - RT Book Reviews

"A great concept and a fun read; an original story with just the right blend of action, suspense, mythology, and romance." - Book Bitch 

"Readers who like their paranormal romantic suspense novels to feature nonstop action, twisting plots, and deadly heroines will devour the clever and compelling Mortal Path series. Assassins, demons and danger, oh my!" - Lisa Gardner

"DELIVERANCE is a gut-kick of a read, with non-stop action and as inventive a world as I have ever seen."
- VICKI PETTERSSON
"DELIVERANCE delivers everything I love in suspense fiction: great characters who jump from the page; a smart, layered plot, and pacing that screams. This is the kind of book that makes you look forward to a rainy day." - JOHN GILSTRAP

"Deliverance is a gut-kick of a read, with non-stop action and as inventive a world as I have ever seen." - Vicki Pettersson

"Deliverance is filled with action, suspense, raw honesty, and great drama. It is definitely the most high-stakes installment in the series yet and I could not put it down. Dakota has done a marvelous job of creating an untenable situation and forcing Maliha to deal with it." - Tynga's Reviews
"I applaud Ms. Banks on delivering an action-packed book with a very intriguing story idea that is not your typical paranormal."
- BITTEN BY PARANORMAL ROMANCE
"Deliverance is sizzling hot and full of the trademark action that accompanies this fantastic series. I absolutely loved this book! The plot is outstanding as usual, full of twists and turns and incredible revelations. FANTASTIC. This series is definitely one of my favourites of all time."
- BOOKAHOLIC BOOK CLUB

"[A] fascinating and refreshingly original series. ... Dark Time is a complex novel bound to grab you by the throat and not let go until the final page is turned. The world presented here is brilliantly portrayed and Dakota Banks does a masterful job with her descriptive imagery. I could not put this book down. A Five Klover Recommended Read."
- CKS KWIPS AND KRITIQUES
"The heroine of this story, Maliha Crayne, is a combination of Jason Bourne meets Lara Croft. She is strong, loyal, witty, and pretty much an all around kick-ass person. Is it possible to be jealous of a fictional character? Because I definitely am! I loved it! Banks delivered in all aspects for me."

"There is plenty of action, drama and suspense in Malihas life as she continues to fight for redemption. The Mortal Path books are filled with unique adventures that leave your mind turning. With every book comes more understanding of her situation and what she might deal with in the future."
- URBAN FANTASY INVESTIGATIONS
"I love this series! It is jammed with action and adventure that moves quickly from one harrowing event to another. Maliha is a strong kick-ass woman who survived not only the control of a demon, but earlier, burning after a false accusation of being a witch. Highly recommended for fantasy lovers as well as action and adventure fans...and more!"

  4. Regaining composure and fendi replica grabbing a bottle of black bean salsa - "nothing but me, the cat box and some first class butt-trombone!" - it was time for http://www.cityofwestwego.com/home.asp "Girls of the Mat," a collection of six all-star wrestling matches. "Damn, I bet when Gramps was my age, and alive, he would have gotten a major chubby watching these http://www.dibaq.com/read.html girls writhe together." And if he could have seen his grandfather gazing down at him from heaven, with a look of utter contempt, he would have been really creeped out. 14 different women wrestle in "Girls of the Mat"- one match is a tag team fight - and it's like cheesecake heaven, or would be if the women didn't look so much like men chanel outlet. (Note: Men who like women who look like men, I'm sorry if I. oh, who am I kidding? Everybody point at these people and laugh.) Most interesting thing isn't the matches themselves but the "Amos and Andy" lite team that narrates the Clara Mortensen vs. Rita Martinez and The Blonde Ballerina vs. June Adair bouts louis vuitton outlet. Guaranteed every self-conscious white person will both cringe and turn the volume down when this comedy bit comes on. People from the south, however, will laugh while slapping their knee and swiss replica watches drinking from the moonshine jug, which doubles as the featured instrument at tonight's big hoedown!
