Dante Valentine, Necromancer and bounty hunter, just wants to be left alone. But the Devil has other ideas.

The Prince wants Dante. And he wants her now. And Dante and her lover, Japhrimel, have no choice but to answer the Prince's summons. And to fulfill a seemingly simple task: become the Devil's Right Hand, hunt down four demons that have escaped from Hell, and earn His gratitude.

It's a shame that nothing is ever easy when it comes to the Devil. Because of course, he doesn't tell Dante the whole truth: there is a rebellion brewing in Hell. And there is a good chance that Lucifer is about to be pushed off the throne.

But Dante is getting really tired of being pushed around. And this time, she might be angry enough to take on the Devil himself...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Devil's Right Hand There’s a lot of action in this short novel, like the others, so it’s a quick read. There’s a lot of personal angst that started getting on my nerves and the struggle is focused more on that than anything else, but action scenes when present are fierce and exhilarating.This dark series is gritty and complex with its unusual hierarchy of demons. Not many of supernatural creatures or people exist. Overall another great book in the series, but not as enjoyable in some ways as the other two; on the other hands, parts of it are more enjoyable than the other two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book Really liked the latest story in this series. Full of great twists, tension, action, and of course, a fantastic world. The ending was great and opens up a lot of possibilities. Can't wait to see where it goes from here!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's great to see Dante back! This was a much better improvement from the second one. (I found Dante to be a little whiny). She still packs a punch with her wit and literally kicks butt in the action scenes. Although she’s still emotional at times, and Japhrimel doesn’t really help her much (at least it seems like it). I’m glad Dante got back on her feet and is somewhat back to her normal self. Like the previous two novels, the action scenes never disappoint me. They’re well written and very descriptive and it really does feel as if you’re watching a movie instead of reading a book. I still think Dante still needs to develop a bit more. It’s like she’s stuck in a rut and can’t seem to get past the emotional stage of her development. It’s developing, but I think it’s developing a little too slow. Yet as I mentioned above, I’m glad she’s back to her butt kicking ways. She still has some issues to resolve, and hopefully they’ll get solved soon to get the plot moving faster. The relationship between Dante and Japhrimel seems strained and tense. Although there’s a lot of love, there’s also a very deep sense of mistrust between the two of them as Japhrimel still hides a lot of secrets. I like them as a couple and they both compliment each other well. Plot-wise, the book was good. Although it was slow at first to get into. The action does pick up and some twists were revealed to keep the story interesting. I still feel as if the story is missing something though, but it could be because I just don’t like the way Dante’s character is developing. The twist in the end was good and I’m looking forward to picking up the next book to read the series further. Dante Valentine fans will be happy that she’s back to her own self (somewhat) and Japh is still sexy as ever. The action and plot twists will keep us coming back for more. Let’s hope with this new twist, the plot will be taken further and will be an enjoyable read like this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Series This is one of the best series I have read. Ever. (ok so far). The third book starts off with some insight into Dante and Japh’s life. It’s a great glimpse into their dynamics but also the author uses their exchanges to really get into the characters. I love that she stays true to them both; their pasts are still here with all the things unsaid. They have issues and are struggling with them as people with their personalities would. I loved the realism of it. As the action kicks off with a bang and never really slows down, the complicated relationship of the protagonists is not a hindrance or left in the background. She weaves it through adding to the fantastic sequences. The mood is dark and I like the direction and the pace of the story. I have no complaints about this one. Only two more left, if they prove to be this great I will be picking up the next series by the author.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome I am really enjoying this series. Just when i find something that is annoying or it gets a bit slow i am thrown in then end up shirking all responsibilities just so that i can read these books. Dante and Japh (why did she change the spelling of his nickname??) are away from Saint City heeling from the events of the last book. Dante is then hired by the Devil to hunt down four escaped Demons. There is trouble in paradise when Dante feels that Japh is hiding everything from her and wont tell her anything and she starts to have doubts. New people are brought on board for this hunt and Dante is having a hard time really trusting anyone, not that you can blame her. I was so caught up in this book. At the beginning i was irritated that she kept hounding Japh for answers and at the same time irritated that he never did answer her. Most of the time you want to trust the guy but then things seem like he is just manipulating her. But this love that she has for him (that i don't really get) keeps her there with him and keeps her doing things that maybe she shouldn't be doing if she really values her life all that much. I really like Liliths form of writting and this series has really inspired me to get EVERYTHING she has ever written.
