From the back cover: "Saint City has always been Dante Valentine's home. It's where she grew up, it's where her dead are buried, and it's where she learned to hunt.
Now one call from an old friend will bring her back to investigate a murder too close to home for anyone's comfort. But the one person she trusted has just betrayed her.
Soemtimes revenge is best served demon-hot."
And from the Lilith Saintcorw site: "Fifth and final book of the Dante Valentine series
Plot. Counterplot. Betrayal. Intrigue. When you're working for the Devil, it's all par for the course. You just have to live with it. Right?
Wrong. When you're Danny Valentine and the Devil double-crosses you one too many times, there's only one thing to do.
Fight back. No matter how hopeless it is. No matter how suicidal it is. No matter how far the game is rigged in the Devil's favor.
Welcome to Hell."
This is very fast paced, moving on directly from the last book in the series. It leaves you totally high and dry at the end - "to be continued" it says. "What???!!!" you shriek (waking the sleeping husband) "You can't do this to me, not after I've just stayed up far too late to find out what happens". She does, and the first two short chapters of the fifth book provided at the end only stoke the fires of needing to know. This need is driven by Saintcrow's statement that this is the last Dante Valentine book - so things have to get wrapped up somehow.
Dante is changing into something scary; she (and we) learn a bit about what being Hedaira means; there are other players who have more of a role here, and a few characters from the earlier books reappear.Read more ›
Again Danny faces some deeply personal tragic events in this book, and it's getting to the stage that people should start avoiding her like the plague. That said, no one does vengeance quite like Danny, and the bad guys (almost) always get their comeuppance.
The action is constant as Danny hunts traitors, battles hellhounds and demons, and generally ends up the worst for wear. She's still hurt and angry with Japhrimel for his inability to share what he knows and his decision to side with Lucifer over Eve, and still searching for answers about her Hedaira status. I would have expected by book 4 that more would be revealed but frustratingly LS is keeping firmly tight lipped; however she does reveal the geas placed on Danny by her god Anubis. There's still plenty left to be explained though, plus the cliff hanger at the end of this book means I'll be diving straight into the next in the series "To Hell and Back".
I read all these 5 books in less than a week and loved them all! I would recommend this series for everyone, couldn't praise it enough!

Told the story, part four in the series, began by repeating the last few pages of the previous novel and thus the plot was easy enough to pick up. Read morePublished on 21 Nov. 2014 by Tracy Terry
Being a fan of Lilith Saintcrow, this book has her usual writing style. However, it is not as good as the earlier books in the same series.Published on 18 Mar. 2014 by Kyle Jakobsen
