Not gonna lie about it. Any reader of “Rising” will soon become familiar with sayings like “bright diamonds of pain” and be able to sing along at home. Dec 30, Karissa rated it liked it.

Danny spends the entire book in misery, and I hardly recognized the sassy, balls-to-the-walls, cocky smart aleck I loved within this shell of a human being.

Lilith Saintcrow: Dead Man Rising – Book Review

Investigating the murders means having to remember Rigger Hall, something that Dante has spent the last 10 years trying to forget. That was two stars down for me. Little is done with her necromancy.

Dante Valentine is half-demon so she looks really HOT, but she hates it. 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.

Nichtvren vampires and werecain werewolves make an appearance and we get a better understanding of the nature of some of the other types of psionic ability. I wasn’t upset by how things ended up with Jase.

The Iron Wyrm Affair. I liked the implication that she was bisexual I think her ex flatmate was also her ex lover. Very whiney protagonist, not very proactive as in 1, kinda wallowy. I did not like this one as much as the first.
