First book in the Dante Valentine series.
I loved this book.
It's what I've been looking in urban fantasy novels with a female lead character. I've read Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris, Rachel Caine, and Laurell K. Hamilton. But Lilith Saintcrow is the real thing.
Dante, or Danny, is a fighter. She fought her way from the bottom to the top. I like that.
Her prose has the same kind of focus Danny has when she's on the hunt, and it complements the plot very well.
And her world-building? WOWZERS!
Get this book. You won't regret it.
