When the Devil needs a rogue demon killed, who does he call?

The Player: Necromance-for-hire Dante Valentine is choosy about her jobs. Hot tempered and with nerves of steel, she can raise the dead like nobody's business. But one rainy Monday morning, everything goes straight to hell.

The Score: The Devil hires Dante to eliminate a rogue demon: Vardimal Santino. In return, he will let her live. It's an offer she can't refuse.

The Catch: How do you kill something that can't die?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Book This is the book that got me into Urban Fantasy. This book is a fast pasted, fun read and it didn't have a single dull moment. The world building is amazing and I love the chracters. Not a bad thing I could say about this book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Working for the Devil (Dante Valentine #1)by Lilith Saintcrow WORKING FOR THE DEVIL isn't really a paranormal romance (the romance part is extremely subtle and not the focus of the book), but I read it anyway because I thought it might have useful elements of the sort we're looking for. Dante Valentine is a necromantic bounty hunter, who gets hired by Lucifer himself to hunt down a rogue demon who's escaped from Hell. He assigns his eldest son, Japhrimel, to protect her.That's really all you need to know about the plot. Battles, confusion, chase scenes, and the requisite ass-kicking all ensue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible Urban Fantasy Setting The story, characters, and action are really good in this book, but what made it for me is the world-building. It's so intricate and unique, really like you're being transported to another world. I didn't want to stop learning about it! I was surprised at the direction the story took and didn't expect the ending. Can't wait for more in this series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enter Dante Valentine So, the title says it all. WftD is about a Necromance bounty hunter who unwillingly ends up working for Lucifer himself (lets face it, the devil doesnt take rejection so easily...). Another hard hitting paranormal packed read, set in the future to a time where Psions (like necromancers, healers, etc) openly walk among the normals since the Psionic Act was passed allowing them to do so. Enter Dante Valentine. Sarcastic, Independant, and skilled with a take no prisoners attitude when it comes to low lifes. Told from Danny's point of view, you will quickly become wrapped up in her story fuelled by the pain in her past, and generously dotted with her dry but fabulous humor. This is female haroine/urban sci fi at it's best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark Fantasy I really enjoyed the first in the series of 5. It has a well constructed plot and the world building was great. I liked the characters, as none seemed one dimensional. I am really interested to see further development of Danny. The mood is pretty dark throughout the book, which personally I really loved. I recommend this book for those who enjoy a fast dark fantasy. Overall this book gets 4.5 stars from me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was OK This is the first book in the Dante Valentine series and it was pretty good. Dante is a Necromance who is hired by Lucifer to find and kill an escaped demon who is now in our world on a killing spree. Dante has met him before as he was the guy who killed her friend and almost killed her. Dante is given a Demon to assist her (Lucifers eldest and assassin) and she has to hook up with her various psion friends to take her taget down. The biggest complaint that i have about this book is that it takes place in not our world, or in like an alternate version of our world. But i found that this was not explained all that well. They are talking about slic boards, and chill, and hovers and all this stuff but there is not all that much explanation. Also in this world are different psions including necromancers, magi, and some other things and those were not all that explained either. I notice that the second book has a glossary (i hate it when a book NEEDS this) and there really should have been one in this book. I found that i spent more time trying to figure out what she was talking about rather than just enjoying the plot and characters and stuff. Other than that the book was enjoyable enough that i will continue on with the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quickly became one of my favourite books/series. Danny's character is definitely one to remember, and I just love everything about this book. I think this one is the best in the series.
