heaven's spite

Wow. Wow. Wow. 

Lilith Saintcrow is one heckuva writer and creates the most amazingly wounded and damaged, but strong female characters. And in the current urban fantasy field , she has to rate as one of the best. Her plots are packed with non stop action. The book grabs you by the throat on page one and doesn't let you go until the final sentence. Maybe.

Jill Kismet has been kicking hellbreed butt for five books now. The next title, Angel Town, will conclude this series. But, back to "Heaven's Spite."  All hell is breaking loose, yet again, and the only gal who can keep things buttoned down is our girl, Jill.  But, all is not as it seems and Jill soons learns secrets that will shift her reality and make her ask questions better left alone.

These books are not for the faint of heart or the queasy stomach set. Saintcrow's version of urban fantasy has a lot of horror elements to it. Dark. Gritty. Violent. Down right scary.  But, if you want a story that refuses to compromise, and a writer who never pulls a punch and puts her characters through hell, brings them back and then does it all again...check Saintcrow out.
