Product Description

Product Description

Dante Valentine’s working relationship with the Devil wasn't her choice - but you don't turn down a contract with Lucifer and live.

Hired to kill fugitive Vardimal Santino, Dante's only allies are a demon familiar she doesn't trust and a small band of psychics. The thing is, Dante doesn't need friends, she needs a miracle. Because the first time Dante Valentine met Santino, she almost died.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely bloody brilliant!! 24 July 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an incredible book. let me start by saying that I am already a fan - I have read the three 'Watcher' books and Saintcrow's otehr two books. I was looking forward to this one, and, not only did she not disappoint me, she exceeded my expections dramatically.

This book is awesome. The almost-didn't-see-it-coming love story and the unexpectedly striking ending left me positively gagging for more. And the sequel will be - arrrghh!! - How long??

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!! The best I have read in a while and I read ALOT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet! 13 Mar 2006
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Necromance-for-hire Dante "Danny" Valentine is hot tempered, but has nerves of steel. She is THE best in the area and possibly in the world. Danny's Monday morning starts off worse than anyone could imagine.
Lucifer, the Prince of Hades, sends his most trusted assassin, Japhrimel "Jaf", to collect Danny and escort her to his presence. The Devil hires Danny to eliminate a renegade demon, Vardimal Santino. Against her wishes, Lucifer grants her a familiar, Jaf, and burns the demon mark upon her shoulder. Danny is to kill Santino and Jaf is to take the "Egg" that Santino had stolen back to Lucifer.
Santino is the serial killer who murdered Doreen, one of Danny's rare friends. Danny would hunt the demon down with pleasure, but wants nothing to do with Lucifer or Jaf. Too bad. She does not have a choice. Danny goes to Gabriele "Gabe", a cop and fellow Necromance (another rare friend), for a little help. The good news: Gabe gives the help. The bad news: Gabe and Eddie are going with her on the hunt.
The group heads out for Nuevo Rio, where Santino currently hides. That is when Danny comes across a Shaman, her ex-lover, Jace. The man had walked out of her life years ago with no warning or explanation. Yet he clearly expects Danny to forgive and forget. NOT! Yet Jace's help is vital. But how can they possibly destroy a demon that cannot be killed by any human or demon? And just what is Jaf not telling them?
***** I have not read all the Dante Valentine novels, but of the stories I have, this one is easily the best yet! This story not only clears up a few things from Danny's past, but also sets up the path for the next adventure. Author Lilith Saintcrow manages to connect her readers with the main character, Danny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book (and series) 5 Jun 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Falling into the darker edge of the urban fantasy genre, this book is a wonderful ride, and an introduction to a fantastic series. Dante Valentine is a character who has been hurt, and now does the right thing - no matter who it hurts. Forced to work for the devil, she is conflicted as he sets her to hunt down an old enemy of hers. The world is lush with a vibrancy seldom seen, and the characters are compelling. A warning that the series has a LOT of dark moments, but is definitely worth the read to come out the other side.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing but fun 1 July 2006
Format:Paperback
The genre for this title is an intriguing mix between goth horror and cyberpunk.

The characters are well described and the plot develops well allowing the reader to follow and try to predict future events with a twist at the end.

The author has an easy to read style embellishing the tale without over extending the story.

I will look for other titles by her in this genre and series.

For a fun read I recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Want something new, try this 27 Aug 2006
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having come across Liliths work a while ago, it was with great interest that I picked up her latest offering. Now for most people Lilith is a new author but for fans of old she does have a continuing series that will more that grip you, yet this was the breakthrough novel, would she keep her magical past touches or would she sell out and deliver something that would be considered safe and just something that fulfils a contractual obligation.

Fans of Lilith wont have to worry, she does keep her integrity and sticks to her guns and it will be something that will endear her to new readers. In fact, what are you doing, get out there and buy the book. If youre into supernatural fiction such as Laurell K Hamilton and Kelley Armstrong then here you go, its in a similar vein (no pun intended.) And yet you ask, why should you buy this book?

Lilith sets her novels into the future and also examines how the possible processes work, rather than just the answer of others of "its magic, I don't have to explain it." Its something of a touch of a great writer that will delve into these little queries and yet the way its written keeps it to the fore of the readers mind without getting technical but provides enough explanation to fulfil even the most must know reader.

If youre wondering how best to sum Lilith up then think of Working for the Devil as a cross between Anthony Piers - Incarnation series, a smidgeon of Blade Runner meets Kelley Armstrongs Otherworld, blended with a touch of LKH (mind you Lilith actually cares about the plot rather than having to add sex to sell it, so LKH be warned.) As a debut it solid and leaves the reader wanting more and lets face it it's a damn good way to go.
