Necromancer Dante Valentine makes a deal with the devil. Dante must hunt down and kill a rogue demon. In exchange, Lucifer will let Dante live. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not much of a choice. But when Dante realizes that the rogue demon was the one who murdered her friend years ago, she becomes all the more eager to hunt down the killer. With a lesser demon tagging along for protection, Dante will be getting into more than she bargained for.
Dante Valentine is a headstrong, independent, and powerful necromancer, able to raise the dead. When trouble comes her way, she faces it head on. And only grudgingly accepts help from others. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a complex character who sometimes seems to have a death wish, but also feels deeply for those she cares about.
Working for the Devil is a very dark and gritty urban fantasy, with plenty of action and suspense. Danger lurks around every corner, as everyone seems to want Dante dead. Saintcrow has created a unique futuristic society blending magic and advanced technology. With more heartache than romance, the story is a cross between a crime novel and an early Anita Blake book.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking forward to the next installment, Dead Man Rising, to see whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s next for Dante and to get another glimpse into SaintcrowÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s original world.
