    Jill Kismet Is In Trouble

    Another night on the Nightside…An ancient evil looms over Santa Luz. Prostitutes are showing up dead and eviscerated. And Jill Kismet just might be able to get her revenge against an old enemy.

    There’s just one problem. Someone wants Jill dead – again. And if they have to open up Hell itself to kill her, they will.

    Sometimes, even when you’re Jill Kismet, you don’t have a prayer…”

    If you’re a Lilith Saintcrow fan, then this second book in the Jill Kismet series does not disappoint! I really like the character depth that is simutaneously revealed along side a rip-roaring ride of dark and gritty urban fantasy at it’s best. Paranormal elements mixed in with mystery, romance, extreme danger and so many themes it’s amazing.

    A master of her craft, Ms. Saintcrow has an uncanny ability to not only put you inside the protagonist’s “head”, but to make you “feel” every thought, emotion, pain, triumph, relief, hope, fear and joy that Jill Kismet experiences, and have you rooting for her and Saul all the way.

    I will give a “little bit of gore described” warning, so if watching the morgue scenes on CSI is too much for you, then be prepared, but I find that it adds to the “reality” that is Jill Kismet’s world. I, for one, am really anticipating the next book in this series, Redemption Alley, (I can’t find a release date for it yet!?).
