Fourth in the Dante Valentine fantasy series, Saint City Sinners continues with the demon hunt to which Japh and Dante have agreed although it takes second place to the disaster which has struck Eddie and Gabe.

My Take

I’m hoping she profits by this insight as she’s driving me mad with her stopping in the middle of a disaster and demanding explanations. Jesus, even I know you get to a safe place first and then ask! Then there’s the fact that she has to have it confirmed from an outside source that “yes, Japhimeral will die if she dies”. Japh has been telling her this since Dead Man Rising, 2. Gee, I wonder what else that Japh has been telling her is true — that he loves her, that he is only happy when he knows she’s safe, that…gimme a break!

The Story

Flying back to Santiago City, Dante promises to find Eddie’s killer and protect their daughter if something should happen to Gabe. Between the hunt for Eddie’s killer, avoiding the hell-escaped demons and their hellhounds, and staying under Japh’s radar, Dante finds herself questioning her new perspective on humans and gains insight as to how she appears to Japh.
