Dead Man Rising, Part 1 by Lilith Saintcrow

And everything you did learn was important. I was sad, bummed out most of the book even though I enjoyed the storyline. I liked the implication that she was bisexual I think her ex flatmate was also her ex lover.

The Nichtvren feed off human blood and were once human until they were infected with vampirism through a blood exchange which magically altered them in to something non-human. This book was frustrating.

I will be frank and tell you that the main reason why I love this series is Jeph. What does deserve mentioning is how the author included a more detailed explanation of her paranormal universe in the beginning of the book as well as a glossary of key concepts at the end. It’s just one of those novels. Otherwise the world the author spun is great, anyhow i’m getting angry reading this book. Have a steely stomach to get through this one.

This can be exhausting, finding so many adjectives to string together, so she develops the habit of stock phrases a la LK Hamilton. To ask other readers questions about Dead Man Liltihplease sign up.

I will trudge along and read them all I guess I’ll find out. It was even more sad and lots of things she did a the end I did not expect at all. She wasn’t worth all that trouble and was ungrateful to boot, though let’s consider she never even asked him to do anything of that nature much less stay with her.

This author is amazing at leaving somewhat big problems unsolved, which makes the curiosity in me foam at the mouth for answers. She comes to the heart of the horror in the battle finale and it was disturbing. saiintcrow

Then there is a genuine mystery and the psychology of all the angst is fairly believable with PTSD based on systemised childhood abuse but with also adequate explanation of why then she has survived Lewis for a start.

As much as I liked Dante in book one, she’s pretty frustrating here – she’s very angsty too say the least when it comes to the effects of the events of Working for the Devil. She knows that she will never return his feelings, yet she continues to string him along, allows him to move in with her, sleep in the same bed as her, tag along on her bounty hunts.

We get it already There were also a couple of short essays at the back to explain some of the concepts Saintcrow uses.

Are you still with me? I have to admit I am usually of the mind that “you walked away and that’s vead regardless of the reason. I still have no idea what the heck Dante is and it’s starting to lose my interest.

Bounty hunting is a helluva job, but it pays the bills. It’s good to find an author after she’s produced several books in a series.

View all 3 dewd. There is one character that they literally have the same conversation in her head and out of it multiple times, or at least it seemed that way. Thankfully, reviews for the 3rd book in the series are quite good, so I won’t be dropping this series. I think this wpould have been better as one of those filler books the author puts out with a 1. This should have been a good read, but I could not really get into it.

You don’t even know what you are anymore. You miss your dead demon lover. This book was pretty good for the most part.
