Open Preview See a Problem? How to write a great review. Lilith Saintcrow has successfully crafted a futuristic world where the gritty urban landscape meshes seamlessly with a reworking of established myth to create a whole new world that is uniquely her own. It was very confusing at times and I had hard time understanding it. She literally never thinks of anyone else, except to whine about how they negatively effect HER life Gabe, Jace, Japhrimel — sometimes to the character in question.
Dead Man Rising, Part 1
This entire installment forced Dante to face ghosts from her past – literally and figuratively – and I kan how she did not become a Mary Sue now that she is part demon. Still enjoyable, but a little more “get up and go” woulda been appreciated. And view spoiler [Jace’s death.
Gabe ends up calling Danny in on a grisly murder and Danny finds that these murders may be linked to something that happened at Rigger Hall the horrible school where Danny was first educated as a psion and tortured, etc, etc.
Bounty hunter Necromance Dante struggles with her half-demon side and the memory of her lover’s death as psychics all over the city are being savagely murdered. As she goes about her investigation, she whines, and acts like a thrown over teen-ager who was just dumped and has not other alternative in front of her.
Dead Man Rising, Part 1 by Lilith Saintcrow
Unfortunately Valentine encounters yet another tragedy in this book — a new loss that I hated. 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 2nd book in the Dante Valentine Series.
Want to Read saving…. I have to Not saitcrow good as the first book, but definitely still enjoyable. She’s all of this, but that could make her a unique and interesting character — if only she weren’t incredibly narcissistic.
But she continues to have the exact same conversation. Picking up the pieces I don’t really remember much about this book, now that I’ve read the third one, but I do remember that there was far too much angst for my liking.
Or the lack of Jeph, to be precise. Lilith Saintcrow’s unique world of Saint City is an awesome blend of urban fantasy and futuristic sci-fi and she definitely knows how to keep me turning those pages. I really, really liked the first book in the Dante Valentine series by Lilith Saintcrow.
