    Just as every cop is a criminalAnd all the sinners saintsAs heads is tailsJust call me Lucifercause I m in need of some restraintI blame Buffy for the rash of ass kicking, smart talking, bitchy female vampire slayers and the legions of sidekicks who inexplicably give them unconditional love.I don t mean to imply that loving Buffy herself was inexplicable Buffy was something special Even when she was bitchy, she was prone to saying things like, I m cookie dough I m not done baking Even as she was touted as the blonde who strikes back in gender studies courses and pop culture crit, she was busily disarming our heroic archetypes with plain, good old goofiness And girliness.Her imitators, as often as not, miss the point Once, in a discussion about why there s so much bad writing in high fantasy, a friend of mine said John Clute, the one unquestionably brilliant critic in sf f when you can understand what the hell he is saying has all kinds of interesting things to say about the difference between Tolkien and his imitators being able to distinguish between Tolkien and Brooks is the minimum standard for any critical apparatus applied to the genre, in his opinion One of the observations he makes is about the role of time and change Tolkien s...

    Picking up this series kinda blindly, I wasn t really sure where to categorize it in the UF world Obviously, it s a kick ass female with magic and blade, but you know how that is Seen it on the shelves a MILLION TIMES Huh Even the blurb just tugs at my old heartstrings for Anita Blake and Rachel Morgan I thought it was a throwaway blurb.But then I learned how wrong I was.Imagine this It s bladerunnerish, high tech noir with hovercraft, laser pulse rifles, juicy biotech implants, gene splicing It s also rune magic, Annubis based necromancy, whole schools of magic, and even eclectic voodoo, ritual, and a lot right out in the open It s open trade for SF and Fantasy in this near future overpopulated world.So delicious.And then there s Dante with her deep connection with Annubis and her dripping holy blue fire blade, her strong necromantic craft for sale for lawyers, the police, or anyone with the means to pay And she s got a new job from a character she can t quite refuse Lucifer Who wants her to assassinate another demon As a little backup, she gets a high level demon as a back...

    Based on the author s name and the title I was fully expecting a neo gothic monstrosity of red velvet, dripping blood and undying love This sort of thing Ironically, the book does feature some red velvet and lots of blood, yet it was surprisingly good nonetheless.This is the story of Dante Danny Valentine, a talented necromance and ass kicking bounty hunter, who is hired read forced by the Prince of Hell himself, Lucifer the Devil is dressed in black jeans and t shirt, is barefoot, androgynously beautiful and has an amazing corona of golden hair but his surroundings are, at least, appropriately resplendent in red velvet, crimson, mahogany and leather bound books to hunt down and kill a rogue demon, Vardimal know in the human world as Santino, and to retrieve a demon artefact, referred to as the Egg, stolen by him In order to help her accomplish this task, Danny is assigned a demon familiar, Tierce Japhrimel, the Devil s Assassin and, possibly, oldest child Lucifer refers to him as my eldest at one point As it turns out, Danny has her own score to settle with Santino who has killed her best friend Doreen several years previously and is, by all accounts, a sadistic serial killer.One of the things I enjoyed most in this book was the dark and gritty atmosphere of the futuristic world where fantasy blends with sci fi and shamans, ancient Egyptian gods, demons, golems and so on are generously interspersed with plasguns, hovercraft even one that can become invisible , datbands, fl...

    I can t believe that happened For me, the whole book was a 3.5 read I mean, I really liked it, but it didn t make me feel stuff And for a rating of 4 5 stars, that is a must But in the last few pages, something happened view spoiler The main male character died hide spoiler

    Dante Valentine is a cross between Jessica Jones and Kate Daniels.Bad ass is her middle name She s got a closet full of secrets, a broken past, and a big ass enchanted sword, and she ain t afraid to use it When the Devil asks her to track down an egg , she literally can t refuse For added kicks, Lucifer has bound Jaf the demon to Dante, to keep her safe until the job is done.I loved this, even if I did find myself scratching my head at a few things It s fast, dark, edgy, and not your usual urban fantasy Which means it s right up my alley.Dante is a snarky necromance with a fabulously dry, ...

    There s something about demon themed Urban Fantasy I just dig up There s always such creatively developed worlds, for one thing This one having Lucifer was a turn off from the blurb as it sounded far fetched and cheesy, but the way it was done made sense and worked well.The main focus is on Dante as she tries to uncover, working with the at first unwilling Japhrimel, where the hiding demon is who has killed her former friend and lover and a slew of others Japh has a vendetta of his own, which is slowly revealed as the story progresses Lucifer isn t in the story much in person, thankfully, and it s mainly with Dante and her former love, two friends, and Japh.Dante is another typical uptight, chip on the shoulder a mile wide heroine She nears the suicidal edge often and could care less whether she survives She lives on anger, revenge, and vengeance alone Her sense of humor is barely there with jokes herself but she can crack a smile if it s warranted She is without hope and lives with horrible memories of her past and all the bad stuff she s endured quite a bit Japh is fascinating and inhuman as he shows emotions and stays silent most of the time I loved their interactions Her friends would have irritated me sooooo badly with a stunt they pulled in keeping something from her I would have hit the roof She s...

    If it stood alone I would have given it 3 stars.I had managed to get my hands on book 1 4 of this series Skipping to book four made me so aggravated that I know I will not be picking up 2 or 3 I will also not be finishing book 4 The inconsistencies in the behavior of the main character, and the lack of all the characters I enjoyed by book 4 just totally turned me off.My problem with the first book just by itself was the fact that the author tried to create her own mythology It is all fine and dandy, but if you don t explain a little about what all your new words mean you lose people.Half of the types of psionics paranormals that she spoke of weren t explained What would they relate to in common mythology Kine, swanhilds, Nichtvren, Skinlin, etc By the end of the first book, all I had figured out was that Skinlin were not shifters as I had first thought, but a type of kitchen witch and that Nichtvren were apparently like vampires sigh The new nomenclature also included inanimate objects Sometimes I had no idea what was going on, or only a vague one at best.Example Gabriele fumbled in her pocket, dug out a crumpled pack of Gitanes, and fished one out with trembling fingers She produced a silver Zijaan and clicked the flame into life The smell of burning synth hash mixed with the pungent spice of kyphii All that to say she was smoking their version of a c...

    Working For The Devil was the perfect book when I needed to read something fast paced I ve been looking for a good Urban Fantasy book for weeks I tried Touched By An Alien, which was crap I tried Spider s Bite, which was crap as well I didn t want to try Working for The Devil because of the cover I think...

    Tried to expand my horizons in the Urban Fantasy category This looked really promising, but has turned out to be hard to get into Written in a future that is not fully explained, with name dropping of made up people, places, and things that don t have any description Unfortunately, it might never get finis...
