URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Dante Valentine: The Complete Series - Lilith Saintcrow

Release Date: 07/04/11


Necromancer. Bounty hunter. Killer. Dante Valentine has been all three in her life. But in the beginning, she was a Necromancer for hire. And while she was choosy about her jobs, there were just some she couldn't turn down - like when the Devil showed up at the door and offered her a deal. Her life - in exchange for the capture and elimination of a renegade demon. But how do you kill something that can't die? This omnibus edition contains these titles: Workng for the Devil, Dead Man Rising, The Devil's Right Hand, Saint City Sinners and To Hell and Back.


As a huge fan of Lili’s writing, its always good when you have a great value for money option in order to purchase a series for friends who aren’t quite ready to take the plunge. What you get in this title is five books for under a tenner (depending where you shop), which when added to the reading time required will give anyone the chance to enjoy it all which is even better as I remember how long it felt in between titles originally. Finally back all this up with Lili’s classic writing style which includes great characterisation, solid prose and full on kick-assery to the max and it’s clear why she exploded onto the scene.

All in a great read and one that if you like Urban Fantasy I can’t recommend enough.
