Publisher's Summary

Dante Valentine’s working relationship with the Devil wasn’t her choice - but you don’t turn down a contract with Lucifer and live. Hired to kill fugitive Vardimal Santino, Dante can count as allies only a demon familiar she doesn’t trust and a small band of psychics. The thing is, Dante doesn’t need friends, she needs a miracle. Because the first time Dante Valentine met Santino, she almost died.

Critic Reviews

“She’s a brave, charismatic protagonist with a smart mouth and a suicidal streak. What’s not to love?” ( Publishers Weekly)

Edge of Seat

This book was fantastic. Lot of action, a lil light romance, and a dance with Lucifer.LOL...not really.However, when you work for the devil you have to know how to do a dance. The ending was fantastic. Not wanting to give anything away, I hope the lil girl gives the devil a run for his money. I have a feeling we will see her again.

Dynamic World Building

Great start to series. Dante is a very gripping character, independent and dynamic. The world building is wonderful and well thought out. I really appreciated the time spent really fleshing out little bits of the characters and the setting.

Tanya Eby was a great narrator. I would listen to other books narrated by her.

overall a good listen.

Right up until the end....

This was really good except for the ending. I have a hunch that will resolve itself in the next book which I will read because despite the ending it really was a good book.

The narrator did a really nice job.

Didn't Impress...

I read the first book of Lilith Saintcrow's Jane Kismet series, and really liked it, so when the Dante Valetine series showed up on sale, I bought the first two.

I can say, I much prefer the Kismet book. Dante Valentine's flavor of sarcasm is excessive, and just makes her seem childish.

The demon, Jaframel (not sure about spelling, since it's an audiobook!) blends right in with every other stoic male hero ever.

Don't waste your time on second rate heroes or villains-
If you want interesting and manipulative demons, try Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series.
If you want a really conniving Lucifer, try Richard Kadrey's Sandman Slim series.

Great story line!

Would you listen to Working for the Devil again? Why?

Yes. I think that I was expecting a better voice for a High Ranking Demon. I liked the voice on the main charator but cringed at his. I think in my minds eye while reading the book I thought he would sound more direct, dominate, maie. Thou if I remeber correctly it stated that he had a mono tone, never giving away emotion but not bridging arguement. HMMM?

Which scene was your favorite?

Everytime she encounters the Devil.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some parts hit too close to home and was VERY thankful the author left out the grousome details. I had to read/listen to the part were she,,,,,, well darn you have to listen/read to find out.

Wish I Knew about this series before

If you could sum up Working for the Devil in three words, what would they be?

Damn Great Start

What did you like best about this story?

The main character, the mix of supernatural and science fiction, the supporting characters and the interesting mid-story twist

Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

Main character, she breathed real life into Dante Vanletine

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

This bounty hunter is about to get the job from hell. . . literally.

Any additional comments?

Some books take me a minute to get into. Some books grab me by the hanging pair and hold on until I finish. This book totally falls into the latter. Great characters, great beginning, really interesting mid-story twist, and and ending that makes you ask, "Okay, what the hell comes next?" I'll be picking up the rest as soon as I can.
