Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This novel by Natasha Rhodes (best known for movie novelizations and motion picture tie-ins like Blade: Trinity, Final Destination: The Movie 1, and A Nightmare on Elm Street: Perchance to Dream) is an action-packed supernatural thriller that is as wildly erotic as it is utterly readable.

For Kayla Steele -- a street-savvy Southern California babe with a "to-die-for" body and an aversion to wearing underwear -- her upcoming date with handsome and mysterious boyfriend Karrel Dante is going to be a turning point in her life; he's finally going to pop the question. But before Dante is able to meet his beautiful bride-to-be, he's killed -- mauled to death by werewolves. When he miraculously returns from the dead, however, Kayla learns that he was a Hunter, part of an underground organization dedicated to wiping out dangerous supernatural beings. Vowing to avenge her lover's death, Kayla begins a journey that will lead her directly into the sordid underbelly of Los Angeles…

The sheer tonnage of dark fantasy/paranormal romance hybrids being currently released is absolutely mind-boggling. The success of authors like Laurell K. Hamilton, Kim Harrison, and Kelley Armstrong has created a virtual feeding frenzy for novels that feature strong, sexy, butt-kicking female protagonists who are more often than not passionately involved with one or more supernatural studs (vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc.). And while Dante's Girl will undoubtedly be categorized as such, Rhodes's exceedingly witty and vividly descriptive writing style -- not to mention her ability to keep the narrative's pacing consistently pedal-to-the-metal -- place this novel a cut above the rest. Smart, sexy, and oh so satisfying… Paul Goat Allen

    Not A Keeper

    I'm an avid reader of urban fantasy & sci-fi, so I'm always looking out for new authors to add to my keep shelf. Sadly this is'nt one of them. The story line was confusing 'too many characters'. The heroine was annoying. I didn't care that her boyfriend was dead or that she had a crappy job and was being hunted by werewolves because of the dead boyfriend. The dialouge was annoyingly hip ALL of the time, and after awhile I just felt like I was stuck in a bad Buffy episode. The ending 'obviously a set up for the next book' was trite and unbelievable.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    The main reason I got this book was the cover. I had never read anything by Natasha Rhodes, and didn't even realize she wrote Blade and Final Destination, etc. I was pleasantly surprised with the story. Yes, there was a lot to keep up with, but all in all, I thought it was very good. Lot's of action, a little romance, some paranormal activity, werewolves and vampires and ghost's...oh my! And really, who cares if there is some proof reading mistakes? Didn't take away from the book. And I like my series books to leave me hanging! That's part of the charm, you can't wait until the next in the series come out! Which I have been doing, waiting not so patiently for Last Angel, and it's finally here! Yay!

    A reviewer

    I am a big fan of modern fantasy fiction and can say that this book fit the bill rather well. The characters were entertaining and I thought the chemistry between the main character and the potential love interest was well developed. The only frustrating part was the amount of issues that remained unresolved by the end of the book. Character motivations were unclear, backstabbing was never explained and some characters were never fully introduced. There were times when I was tempted to stop reading and wait for the next book, where hopefully, some of the loose ends would be cleared. It is true that series writers leave certain issues unresolved, to be continued in another book, but this storyline had too many and, quite frankly, that was very frustrating. Hopefully, the next book will help clarify the issues because this looks to be a promising series.
