Dante Valentine has been through Hell. Literally. Her body shattered and her mind not far behind, she's dumped back into her own world to survive -- or not -- as a pawn in one of Lucifer's endless games. Unfortunately, he's just messed with the wrong Necromance. And this time she's mad enough to do something about it. This time, the Devil will pay.

For the whole series: By the gods and kittens, that *censored* hurt.

Seriously excellent world building, really strong character development, a fascinating look at ethics without truth, and just... damn. An impressive and in many ways resonating construct, but I'm literally writing myself a note to never pick this particular series back up again because the price is so damn high.

And yeah, it gets five stars. Because it does what it does so very well. And because so many of the underlying structures are absolutely beautiful. ( )

Lots of action right from the first page, scrambling up from hell and into Jersey.

I know. Not much of an improvement, but at least she has friends.

This is the last book and it's all about getting herself and Jeph out of the position they find themselves in. Lucifer has a rival. And then there are two rivals. All in all, between the growing factions, the action, and the culmination, it's a pretty fun book. We knew this was where it was headed since the first book. A showdown against the devil.

And this is what we got.

My only complaint was the super rushed end. You know, the wrap-up. It's rather unsatisfying even though the end action was quite decent.

Is it enough to lose another star, though? No... I'm still quite happy and pleased with how it turned out, romance and constant betrayal and all. This is, after, demons we're dealing with. :) ( )

After how much I hated Dante in the last book, I was pleased to see she’s mainly – and I mean, mainly – decent in this one. She does come across at the end as the very unlikeable protagonist again. Seriously, I dislike her so much. With her IQ and personality, don’t see how she can keep anyone in her life. The ending really irritated me until the epilogue. Dante is a rage filled, moronic, selfish person who does so much without thinking about it first and the blindly accepts kindness from people around her who are actually more decent than she is.

This book is a bit better than the other because the story is a good one, some of the angst is shaken off to deal with plot and story. Tension is high and stakes are driven up. There is an epic ending battle. I just wanted to laugh in Dante’s face and say haha! See, everyone knew this very obvious thing in all the books except YOU, it was SOOOO obvious. Grrrr.

And finally at the last page you see there really isn’t much left for her to know about what she’s become – the thing she’s been whining about for three books almost non-stop. She knew everything already so we had all that unneeded angst for nothing. For the love of reading, WHY did the author put me through that then, WHY?

Why a decent rating then? Well, this book was hard to put down. I have invested in all the books so I wanted to finish it to the finale, which was a good one. The ride in this book was decent with discoveries, travels, and trials. Angst is slightly less so this is a pleasant surprise. Well, until the last half (sigh)

Overall the ending is nice and this is worth it to finish the series if you’ve read it thus far. I’m glad I read the series overall but ended up disliking it much more than liking it when it was all said and done. The first book or so filled me with excitement, but the last three filled me with annoyance and frustration. Weird mix from a book series.

A very good ending. Everything is finished but nothing is really set in stone. Dante is still very damaged by the events of the books but she comes out on the other side of all the bad stuff and I think that she is better for it. I do not think that her relationship with Japhrimel will ever be the same but who knows, maybe they can work something out. The writing is really very good. I like the way that Saintcrow takes the things that we know so well and makes them into something just a little off. I had some problems with the characters but all in all I really like this series. I like Dante, I like Japhrimel, and I just like the world that Saintcrow created. I look forward to reading more from her soon.

I give this book a Five out of Five stars. ( )

Book 5, the last blessed book, in the Dante Valentine series. I found myself skimming A LOT in the this book. I just wanted to see what happened. The writing is frustrating, the characters are frustrating, the action scenes are too detailed. It was an ok-ish resolution for the main story line, but so many side stories were just left hanging. Eh. Kind of frustrated with myself for wasting so much time on it. And annoyed that I just couldn't put these books down and walk away - I just had to know how it all ended. Grrr. ( )
