    You get Sucked in and then Nothing.

    Books 1 and 2 were awesome. I wish I could have stopped after that. I can understand a heroin being confused about loyalties when dealing with Lucifer and his Demons. But how many times does it have to be proven that Japh is on her side for her to believe it. This heroin whined throughout books 3,4, and 5. I only read the remaining books to see what happened to Japh. I don't think Dante is good enough for Him. She started out as a likeable character and then turned into a whiny complaining little brat. With each book it just got worse and worse and I actually skipped full sections of pages just to get to the end. Don't start reading unless you are one who can walk away from a series.

    Liked the first two, then wanted to punch Dante in the face.

    Read the first book and enjoyed it, so I figured I'd go for the set and read 'em all. BIG MISTAKE. Liked the second book, but by the middle of the third book, I wanted to punch Dante and pretty much felt that way the rest of the series. At first, I felt that the Dante character had such potential for growth and depth as she learned more about her demon powers and the way her life was changing. Instead, she was like a spoiled, petulant and extremely stubborn child. Honestly, by the end of the series, you'd think Japhrimel would choose a life of wasting away without his hadeira over putting up with her whiny, self-absorbed a$$ for eternity. So, while other characters in the series are interesting, the main character is NOT, which, ultimately, makes this series kind of a drag to read. I also like the setting the author has created for this series, which makes me wonder if some of her other books might be worth reading.

    I bought the massive complete series after reading the first few

    I bought the massive complete series after reading the first few chapters at the store, It seemed like an interesting story and it was big enough to keep me occupied for a while, I'm a book addict,lol. Once I got home, however, my opinion changed. I still think it seems like an interesting story, but I'm not crazy about her writing style. I've only read the first book, and had to nearly make myself finish it, there were parts that I really liked, but so many other parts that were so hard to follow, not understanding alot of the made-up words and her not explaining what the hell they were. The main character semed like she could be really awesome, but theres something that I cant really pinpoint about her thats just lacking. And after reading everyone elses reviews, and them saying the first two were the BEST!? I really dont think I can read the rest. I might just cut my losses and take it to a used bookstore to trade in.
