Publisher's Summary

When the dead call, she answers.
Bounty hunting is a helluva job, but it pays the bills. And it lets Necromancer Dante Valentine forget her issues - like struggling with her half-demon side and the memory of her lover's death.
Now psychics all over the city are being savagely murdered - and a piece of the past Dante thought she'd buried is stalking the night with a vengeance. Too bad she's got no way to tell which fiend - or friend - to trust. Or that her most horrifying nightmares are gathering to take one kick-ass bounty hunter down for the count.
But that's only the beginning. The Devil just called. He's looking for Dante's lover - the one he killed....

Not sure I've I'll read the next one or not. She left the best plot point for the last ten pages of the book. Really disappointed me.

Even Less Impressed.

Book 2 wasn't an improvement on book 1.

Dante is so emotionally overwrought the entire book, someone needs to put her out of her misery.
When her shoulder isn't burning (or icy), her hand is cramping into a claw. When she's not having nightmares, she's wallowing in self flagellation or bemoaning that her friends care about her. I get that she has emotional scars, but it's awfully tedious to be reminded of it every few minutes.

I also have a little pet peeve, when an author uses the same phrasing to describe the same thing more than once. It doesn't tell me anything new to describe the same lake as "algae-choked" more than once, or describe the same smells, auras, and magical phenomena in the exact same terms, repeatedly. This book could have benefited from the application of a thesaurus.
