Описание

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.

  • (3/5)
    Very fast paced. From a certain point of the plot onwards, the characters change allegiances in a blink. A great conclusion for an adrenalinic series.
  • (5/5)
    Tough, bloody, hard-nosed - and absolutely superb. A gritty, harsh AU where the Devil and his demons are real, and very, very dangerous...but so is Ms. Valentine. Remarkable for being a finite series, instead of being milked to death the way Laurell K. Hamilton has done with her Anita Blake series.

    This is the 5th (and last) book in the Dante Valentine series by Lilith Saintcrow. It was okay; not as good as some of the previous ones, but okay.The book starts with Dante (Danny) being expelled from Hell in an alley; she has taken quite a beating from Lucifer and can't remember much of it. Lucas comes to her rescue and Danny is soon reunited with Japh. Danny finds that in her absence Japh has been tearing apart the world looking for her, and he has declared rebellion against Lucifer. In order to kill the devil Japh is determined to get a special knife that was made for hedaira to wield against demons. He has determined that Danny will use it to kill the Lucifer. Of course Japh, is also out to kill Eve and Danny is hell-bent on protecting Eve. Danny exerts her independence against Japh and makes a "hell" of a mess out of everything...again.There were a lot of things about this book that bothered me. I don't understand why Danny is so blindly faithful to Eve; Eve jerks her around just as much (if not more than) Japh. Danny is not blindly faithful to anyone; why should she be faithful to Eve? On the flip side Danny is horribly unfaithful to Japh. I don't understand why. Both characters lied to her a ton; yet only one of them was supportive of her.By the end of this book I really, really disliked Danny as a character. She was a physical and emotional mess the whole book. She rarely took any action on her own. When she did take action, the action she took seemed to be thoughtless and to just be an excuse to use power. Danny basically screwed up through this whole book.While Japh is not a perfect character; he seemed to act at least consistently throughout the book. It would have been nice to know a bit more about Japh and his past. It would have been nice to know more about why Japh fell for Danny. The only explanation he gave was that "She treated him like a human"; you can't tell me that that has never happened before to him in all of the thousands of years he has existed.For some reason a lot of this book kind of got under my skin and irritated me. Maybe it was too drawn out or just too inconsistent. It left you with more questions than answers. While it was a decent ending to this series; I think it could have been better. Maybe Saintcrow will write a series about Japh or Lucas; I think they were much more interesting than Danny. I guess we will see.

    Huh. Mostly, I'm glad I'm done with it. By the end of the third book, Dante was too damaged to be interesting any more - she was just too broken in too many directions. At least they reached closure of a sort - I was afraid it would be either Dante or Japh who would have to be Prince, or the two of them. Demons enjoy destruction and betrayal way too much - by the end of the fourth book, there was no one I trusted enough to be interested in (the assorted demons, Leander, Lucas - at least the Hellesvront agents stuck to one side!). It's a well-written story, but way too dark for me. I prefer her romances, where there's at least a reasonable happy ending. I'll keep trying, reading her other books, because she is an excellent writer, but I don't think I'll ever reread Dante Valentine.

    Really enjoyed the Dante Valentine series overall. Not entirely satisified with the "ending" we get here but I do think it may be the only kind of conclusion we could get from Dante.I still spent a lot of the time confused by what exactly was going on (a reason I think I was less than satisified with the ending, because we still didn't get explanations). Of course, Danny seemed to have that issue too so maybe that was intentional? Either way, it was a bit frustrating at times. But I was drawn in by the characters and wanted to know how things were going to turn out so I'd give the whole series four stars overall.

    The end of the series.If you've following it this far there are few surprises... Dante is torn between Eve and Japh, but decides (in the immortal words of her sensei to "Do, not think" which is not exactly the smartest move ever...They collect the bits of a knife that can slay demons. Dante enters a blurring world of self-hate and anger - it's implied this is due to the knife to some extent.There's plenty of fast, well written action.Dante finally acknowledges that whether or not she trusts what Japh says, she trusts that he will act to protect her and there's a rather surprising mostly happy ending.

    Another series put to bed. All things considered, I'm satisfied with this conclusion to the Dante Valentine books. The story was drawn to a nice close without any real cliffhangers to drive a person crazy and there was plenty of both action and character development. Definitely not a cop-out book the way some authors end a complicated series. And this was a complicated story if for no other reason than trying to figure out the main character. Traumatized, instinctively violent, emotionally needy -- Danny is a love-hate relationship personified. Then there's Japhrimel, tenderly protective lover and controlling, treacherous demon that he is. It's interesting how as the books went along he became more and less than he was in book one. It's also frustrating to get the story from only Danny's perspective as so much of their relationship goes unspoken. Certainly, though, this final installment sheds more light on Japh, the A'nankhimel, and their hedairae than all four previous books combined.
