Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Hunter Jill Kismet (Night Shift) is back on the streets in this mass market original. In gritty, violent Redemption Alley, the stakes couldn't be higher. Assigned to investigate an apparent suicide, Kismet quickly finds herself sinking in a quicksand of complications. Venturing into the darkside always presents risks, but in this case, even Jill's supposed law enforcement allies have their own deadly agenda. An urban fantasy with teeth; one brisk read.

    How Does This Woman Survive?

    It's amazing what Jill Kismet, the main character in this series, goes through in order to keep her city clean of hellbreed. I don't know how she does it and lives day-to-day. Fortunately, she has her lover Saul, a were-cougar, other were friends, cops, and other friends in her corner who help out from time to time. But really, it's all about her, and how she survives. This series is non-stop action, and completely crazy! I'm definitely reading the next book in this series!

    Repetitive

    I enjoyed the first two books in this serious, but when I was about half-way through this book, Redemption Alley, I felt like I was having a serious case of deja vu. Jill Kismet is an awesome character, however, NOTHING EVER CHANGES for her. In three books, she has neither moved forward nor backward. She even says the same couple things in every book! I know some will say, "well, she got married in the last book" and yes, she did, but we didn't experience that with her and her introduction to Saul's were-family and the community would have been fantastic for the readers. I feel extremely disappointed by Ms. Saintcrow; it seems that she has a template for this series that allows her to change a few key points and publish book after book that are full of incredibly similar work. I have never given up on a series half-way through it (and I read, on average, one book every other day), but I'm finished with this one...I cannot bare to see a character with so much potential completely disregarded by her creator, who I believe is so obsessed with people stealing her books that she is mass producing them to make money (check out her blog if you'd like to better understand what I mean).

    invigorating investigative urban fantasy

    Having just rescued a teen from a Trader, Hunter Jill Kismet knows her vocation allows no vacation. Her Santa Luz police department contact Detective Montaine asks Jill to look into the suicide of a cop; Officer Marvin Kutchner ate his Glock two months ago. The deceased has not returned from the grave so is outside of Kismet's cases. However, Montaine says Kutchner was his partner at one time and he would never take his own life. Kismet notices the popular police candy Tums unopened and the police hydrator whiskey almost filled so decides to help her contact obtain closure by investigating the death so that the bottles remain practically filled.

    The simple case turns convoluted and deadly as allies prove false and enemies prove loyal. Cops want her dead and Hellbreed have damning information they offer to her. As she digs deeper and deeper, Jill finds links to disappearances and begins to uncover a hellish conspiracy that places the city in danger unless she can finish peeling back the onion in time with the help of another Hunter and some Were.

    The third invigorating Jill Kismet investigative urban fantasy is as vivid and violent as the previous thrillers (see NIGHT SHIFT and HUNTER'S PRAYER) in this action-packed take no prisoners without blood flowing saga. The story line is faster than the speed of light as the heroine jumps feet first into the hellish fire as nothing is what it seems. Filled with great twists, Lilith Saintcrow provides a stunning Kismet entry as the Hunter affirms Schwartz's tenet that Murphy is a god damn optimist.

    like the story

    while I do enjoy the story line I am tired of reading about Jill having yet another near death experiance. I realize her character is a hunter and that is part of the roll but the constant head trama and crushed rib cage damage is getting old, have her character be more cautious or learn to duck! No need for balls to the wall ALL the time.

    Needs

    Needed a better plot. Needed to tell you better why he was gone. Needed a cliff hanger at the end. Needed to tell why she killed off that cop.

    Hunter goddess

    This is book 3 in the series, and I loved it! However
    I am hoping Jill will grow more as a character.

    Good Read

    I like it because I like strong women who have vulnerabilities. This book has good characters, good and bad, it moral dilemmas would be challenging most and Jill has a good heart but bad history and she strives to do the right thing and do the job that both she choose and, in a way, choose her.

    I Also Recommend:

    Latest paperback in the Jill Kismet series is consistently awesome.

    Ms Saintcrow remains faithful to her initial vision of Jill Kismet's world. She lets the story play out with her well developed characters and environment. The heroine is awesome/flawed/self-doubting/driven at the same time. How do you have a life when you are policing the residents of hell that come to live in your town? Oh, and you have made a bargain with said hellspawn? The Jill Kismet reality is well constructed. Disbelief is easy to suspend when the writing is this good. Written well enough to enjoy by itself, but even better when read in order of the series.

    Nothing new-if you like Saintcrow then it's perfect.

    I like Lilith's writing style and her character is quite good. I wish her characters were a bit more distinct since, in my opinion, her female characters from her other series are very similar.

    I was also curious what new plot lines she would conjure up. This one was interesting but, in a series, one of the dangers is that the author will beging to become cliche.

    I hope that doesn't happen here.

    All around a good, above average read but it doesn't hit the pinnacle for me. It's a keeper.

    Life's Uncertainties

    I'm not sure why everyone hasn't discovered Lilith Saintcrow. I'm not sure how she combines truly lyrical writing with nonstop action. I'm not sure why my cat always barfs on the carpet instead of the tile . . . but I digress.

    Really good book. Really good series. If you haven't tried it, do.
