"Dark fantasy has a new heroine."
--- SFX

When the dead call, she answers.

Bounty hunting is a helluva job, but it pays the bills. And it lets Necromance Dante Valentine forget her issues---like struggling with her half-demon side and the memory of her lover's death.

Now psychics all over the city are being savagely murdered---and a piece of the past Dante thought she'd buried is stalking the night with a vengeance. Too bad she's got no way to tell which fiend--or friend--to trust. Or that her most horrifying nightmares are gathering to take one kick-ass bounty hunter down for the count.

But that's only the beginning. The Devil just called. He's looking for Dante's lover--the one he killed...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dead Man Rising (Dante Valentine #2) by Lilith Saintcrow I am really disapointed to say that this wasn't as good as the first one :( But thankfully it was readable. I find it hard to rate this book, because I spent half of it not really liking it, then the second half digging it. The writing seems to have improved considerably though there is still a lot of repetition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full Of Surprises Lots of twists and danger (which caused me more than a little heartache at some parts), and some of the best world-building I've ever read. The setting was great! Can't wait to read more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot More on the Line Danny's adventures continue in Dead Man Rising where Saintcrow delivers again. This time, the danger is much more closer to home revealing what WftD left you wondering about Danny's past. There's a lot more on the line this time which is definitely saying something after reading the first instalment of the series. Psions are being brutally murdered all over the Saint City and a fresh lead in the story makes Danny question if she can step up to the plate. This story will leave you with chills as the reflections of the past become a very current ghost story. Action packed and fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so great This is the 2nd entry into Dante series, and it is great. I am loving this series so far. The characters are really evolving and the mood is DARK. This instalment was much darker, at times heartbreaking. The writing is just great. Put simply if you like dark, smart fantasy; Dante series is for you. While the pace is a bit slower here, it is fitting to what is going on (no spoilers). Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent addition I liked this series more while reading this book, then with just the first one. But it is the later half of the book that really got me into it. At the beginning i just wanted to see what was going on and what the series was like, and then there was part of this book that was kind of confusing, and i am still a bit confused by it (like, what is going on, where did that come from, did i miss somthing) but after finishing this book you see that that had to be there in order for stuff to turn out, but i am still alittle confused about it. Guess you have to read it to find out what i am talking about :) In this book Dante getts called on by the cops when a couple of psions are found dead. Not just dead of course, but viciously murdered. All this comes back to Dante and she has to bring up the past and the terror of it when she has to go back to Rigger Hall, the place of pain and unimaginable terror where she lived out her childhood. I thought this was a great look into her past and we got a lot more answers in this book of things that were just brought up in the last. Not just about Dantes past, but about the world she lives in in general. Also, this book has a glossary and a couple added bits, which make it just all around fun!! So far i really love this series and it is a nice break from alot of the fluff thats out there.
