Book Review: Lilith Saintcrow’s Working for the Devil

Working for the Devil

urban fantasy that was published by Warner Books on March 1, 2006 and has 403 pages.

Explore it on Goodreads or Amazon.

First in the Dante Valentine urban fantasy series set in an alternate world.

My Take

No kidding!! Ever wondered what it felt like to work for Lucifer? Well, wonder no more. Dante Valentine has got a smart mouth that won’t quit…even when she’s dissin’ the de’il hisself. I do like her chutzpah!

Dante feels very much like a Kate Daniels, an Anita Blake, or a Jane Yellowrock.

As Danny hunts down her quarry, we are introduced to her world, her ex-lover, and we witness her transformation by the familiar with whom Lucifer has saddled her.

The Story

Lucifer has heard of Danny Valentine’s reputation and hires her to find a bounty…not that she has much choice in accepting the job or not. When she learns who the bounty is…I’m not sure Lucifer would have had to work very hard to persuade her.

The Characters

Danny Valentine is a licensed necromancer who hunts bounties in a world that has come to accept that such oddities exist.

Lucifer rules in Hell.
