Dead Man Rising: A Dante Valentine Novel, Book 2 | [Lilith Saintcrow]

Dead Man Rising: A Dante Valentine Novel, Book 2

Bounty hunting is a helluva job, but it pays the bills. And it lets Necromancer 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.

    Story
    "Even Less Impressed."

    Book 2 wasn't an improvement on book 1.

    Dante is so emotionally overwrought the entire book, someone needs to put her out of her misery.
    When her shoulder isn't burning (or icy), her hand is cramping into a claw. When she's not having nightmares, she's wallowing in self flagellation or bemoaning that her friends care about her. I get that she has emotional scars, but it's awfully tedious to be reminded of it every few minutes.

    I also have a little pet peeve, when an author uses the same phrasing to describe the same thing more than once. It doesn't tell me anything new to describe the same lake as "algae-choked" more than once, or describe the same smells, auras, and magical phenomena in the exact same terms, repeatedly. This book could have benefited from the application of a thesaurus.

    "Good Story, less Exposition"
    Would you try another book from Lilith Saintcrow and/or Tanya Eby?

    Yes


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Wanted more bang, less exposition. Sometimes the character describes her feelings over and over again, was waiting for more answers. I don't mind some things being drawn out more, especially with a series, but there were just answers I thought should come and didn't. They might come in other books but felt a little to drawn out to me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Fate of Dante's home


    Any additional comments?

    Wasn't my favorite. Couldn't put it down but left too wanting (and with any book series I don't mind being left wanting more, this just felt too thin.) Still going to do the rest of the series because it is that good.
