    Lilith Saintcrow an author that shows why they need to start breaking up the sci-fi/fantasy section into romance and nonromance sections. She's a great author with a great world set up for Dante Valentine series, but after a second book of reading about her heroine moping about some old lover or another EVEN WHILE IN A FIREFIGHT just made me lose interest in the series. If I was someone that liked romance and sci-fi/fantasy I'd most likely give her a 5 star rating. As a stereotypical straight male I can only give her 3 stars. Guess it's on to the next series for me. But if you do like romance and sci-fi/fantasy mix give her a try. Think the old Shadowrun world only darker, with a good bit of romance mixed in

    Good Idea, Could have been better

    This is about Dante Valentine, necromancer and bounty hunter. The Devil hires her to bring back a demon artifact that was stolen from Hell and gives her a demon minion, Japhrimel, to make sure she survives the recovery. Dante doesn't really have a choice in the matter, but when she learns that she is hunting the demon that killed her best friend, she is all for it.

    While trying to gather the information and supplies for her hunt,she learns that a mage from the school she went to has turned to drugs and she turns him in to the police. Then her friend Gabe brings her lover into Dante's hunt without asking. And when it seems to be getting deep, Dante learns that they are staying at her ex-boyfriend, Jace's, house and he has invited himself to the hunt also. But this is not just a simple hunt for an artifact and kill the killer, there is more than what Dante is being told.

    This story had potential. But I was so confused about the different terms and items that I was lost for the first half of the book and still confused through the rest. This seems to take place in the future with the hover crafts and plasma guns. But there are a ton of different abilities, names, and types of people that most were not explained well and I had no idea what they were supposed to do let along what they brought to the story.

    I have to say that I am not going to bother trying to read any other books in this series. If it wasn't for the fact I didn't have any other books to read I would not have finished it.

    What happened to good editing?

    I really liked the plot of this series and the detail that the author has put into the world she created. But I find the wording sometimes confusing, the same phrases repeated over and over, and events happening out of sequence 'like a door bell tinkling after the character has already entered the building'. The characters shrug at everything. Overall, the style of writing is disappointing and takes away from the storyline.
