Dead Man Rising by Lilith Saintcrow

Released: January 1, 2006
Publisher: Orbit
Rated: Adult

When the dead call, she answers.

Bounty hunting is a helluva job, but it pays the bills. And it lets Necromance Dante Valentine forget her issues---like struggling with her half-demon side and the memory of her lover's death.

Now psychics all over the city are being savagely murdered---and a piece of the past Dante thought she'd buried is stalking the night with a vengeance. Too bad she's got no way to tell which fiend--or friend--to trust. Or that her most horrifying nightmares are gathering to take one kick-ass bounty hunter down for the count.

But that's only the beginning. The Devil just called. He's looking for Dante's lover--the one he killed...

What I thought:

Oh, what a story! I was hooked from the first book and it got worse with this one. I just couldn't put it down. Dante is just a fabulous character. She's so strong with vulnerable moments that I just can't help but love her. My heart ached with her as she grieved through this novel. I recommend a box of tissues for this one.

This is the second series I have picked up by Lilith Saintcrow. I read her Strange Angel's series under the name Lili St. Crow and I have to say I am a huge fan of hers now. She is a fantastic author who will be on my list of people to follow up on.

I gave it 4 stars!
