Overview

Jill Kismet, Dealer in Dark Things. Spiritual Exterminator. Demon Slayer - it’s not the type of work you can put on a business card. But every city has people like me.

Usually the police have us on payroll as consultants, because what ordinary cop can face down a Were or an ordinary shapechanger, or an Assyrian demon? Not to mention the silvers or the Black Mist, the adepts of Sorrow House or of the Middle Way? What ordinary cop stands a chance against a Trader, even?

People disappear all the time, it’s an epidemic; some of the disappearances are murder, some are fugitives, some are kidnapped by other human beings. Some of them are even found again. But a good proportion of them are taken by the things that go bump in the night. And then it becomes a hunter’s job to bump back. Hard.

    Enough of the formula, already!

    Jill Kismet is a Hunter dedicated to overseeing the welfare of the citizens of Santa Cruz, protecting them from things that go bump in the night - things the police can't handle. Her companion and back up is a were cougar named Saul, and her constant nemesis is a hellbreed named Pericles. He seems to have something special in mind for Jill, but as yet, neither Jill nor we readers are quite sure what.

    Jill is a tough, kick-ass heroine, and there's plenty of action. The author is a good story-teller and I really appreciate her ability to make the reader care about the emotional lives of her main characters. I came to this series after reading the Dante Valentine novels (which I preferred), and my main criticism is that the author has become very repetitive. Both Dante and Jill nearly die at least three times per book (even the injuries are the same - crushed ribs, knocks on the head, a crushed throat), so by the time the final confrontation between good and evil arrives, it's pretty anti-climatic. Even many phrases of dialogue occur repeatedly through the series as though lifted from a template with no effort to even rephrase.

    It's too bad, because at times the author comes up with striking visuals and emotionally wrenching moments. I'm giving up on this series, however, because she doesn't seem to care about developing unique characters that change and grow. My impression is that Ms. St. Crow has a lot more potential than she's willing to show. Because so much of the material is a rehash, I'm only giving this book a 2.

    Love this series

    Book one in this series was recently highlighted from BN and I am glad that it was. What a great little read. The plot is entertaining, Jill, the main character is very fun.

    If you like books on witches and things that go bump in the night...but is not horror. You will enjoy this book.

    an enjoyable paranormal thriller

    Jill Kismet is a hunter a human who kills the creatures of the nightside evil beings who wish to destroy mankind. The local police are not equipped to deal with such beasts so they hire her when it looks like the supernatural committed a heinous crime.------------------- She is called in to examine a body of a prostitute in which all the internal organs are gone and it looks like someone took out chunks of the victim to eat. Jill learns that others were found in the same condition. In between looking at dead bodies and trying to figure who or what killed them, Father Guillermo calls her to do an exorcism on seminary student Oscar. She is successful in pulling the demon of his body, but she later learns he is a Sorrrow a human who worships the Chaldean Elder Gods. If Sorrows are in Kismet¿s city, she is prepared to deal with them because she uses a hellbreed¿s mark, which gives her powers that originate in Hell. Jill discovers an old enemy is in town the Sorrow who killed her mentor and she learns that a rebel Sorrow is performing a ritual that will allow the Nameless, Destroyer of Babies and Eaters of Worlds God to cross into our real unless she can locate and stop the evocation.------------------- As usual, Lilith Saintcrow writes an entertaining, action-packed urban fantasy loaded with strange dark and evil monsters. Her Hunter world is grim yet hopeful as creatures of myths, legend and the night roam the earth. The heroine uses evil powers to fight for the better good and protect the innocent in a sort of fight fire with fire manner. Jill¿s romantic feelings for a were-cougar embellish an enjoyable paranormal thriller.------------------ Harriet Klausner

    Good story line

    Starting to wonder about character development, tho, but still a good read. Suppose it's not easy to do in only 252 pages.

    Awesome

    Saintcrow has done it again! From the first page I was hooked. Kismet is a kicka$$ hunter. Plenty of twists and turns. Can't wait to read book 3.

    Who ya gonna call?!

    Jill kismet is another kick butt heroine that takes you on an action packed fantastical adventure! The author Lilith Saintcrow definately brings the world of fantasy right to the realworld in this series. Jill works with keeping the city cops from gettin eatin from the real bad nasties and is kinda a tough magical hand for hire when anyone has problems from the 'Other side'. Jill Kismet is a heroine who aint perfect which definately makes you like her all that much more. if you want an action packed magical thrill ride this is the book for you. i enjoy this series and cant wait for more of whats to come.

    Fun & Excellent new urban fantasy series!!

    This book is the second book in the Jill Kismet series but it can stand alone. I own book 1 of this series but I haven't read it yet, but I could still understand the book very well. However, highly recommend you to read book 1 first for your full enjoyment. This book was written in a first person narration (in case, some of you want to know.)... The story, just like other reviewer said, is focusing on a female hunter, Jill Kismet and her shape shifter sidekick, Zaul. The story starts when Jill, who's working as a paranormal consultant for the cops was called to examine a body of a female prostitute who got murdered and her body was cruelly mutilated in a very non-humanly way. The main storyline is about how Jill was trying to investigate the case. However, Jill herself also has her own personal trouble to add to the story. By making a secret deal with a demon in exchange for her super human power, this contract now comes to haunt her every move.
    If you want to compare this book to Lilith's previous work, I rate this book pretty much equal to Book 2 of Dante Valentine series. Jill is a strong heroine and yet still amiable. There is a little romance thrown in. But if you're looking for a paranormal romance genre, this is not for you. But if you like to read paranormal/ fantasy with a sprinkle of romance, this book is definitely for you. It's still one of the best urban fantasy books I've ever read. So if you're looking around to find something good to read, I suggest you to try this one. But, as I mentioned before, I highly recommend you to start with Book 1 first.- Happy reading!!

    GREAT BOOK! KISMET IS AWESOME!

    I just got this book today and have been waiting anxiously for awile. I have already read the whole thing and it is awesome. I love the characters in this series, Lilith has a real talent for winning you over with her characters, wether they are good or bad. I really like how all of her characters are not perfect. They all have hang ups and she reels you in and makes you really care about them. This is a great series!
