Not so much a review - but some information:
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.

Dante (Danny) Valentine is caught up in a whole heap of trouble in book 4 of this dark urban paranormal series. She is still under contract to hunt and kill 4 rogue demons; however considering whom one of these demons is the reader can fully understand Danny's reluctance to complete her task. She's also received a cry for help from her best friend Gabe and despite her obligations to Lucifer; Danny heads straight back to Saint City to protect her friend.

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".

Format: Paperback
This is book 4 of a dense urban fantasy set in the future. It's got a lot of made up "future speak" lingo, so be forewarned. It will also drag you through the ringer emotionally. On no level is this an easy read. That said, I love this series. I just realized that book 5 will conclude the series, and I'm relieved - I don't think I could accept Dante suffering much more emotional and physical trauma. As it is, I have to take a break before reading the final installment. In this book, Dante takes vengance for the murders of her two friends Eddie and Gabe. Japh is kidnapped for a while, but since he's hunting Eve against Dante's wishes, she doesn't mind so much. Lucifer takes Dante to hell at the very end of the book to punish her for siding with Eve in the rebellion. Dante gets custody of Gabe and Eddie's daughter...
