|Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer. When a new
hellbreed appears on the scene Jill Kismet finds herself making nice with Pericles, her
sadistic hellbreed patron (for want of a better word), and Melisande, whose
loyalties are unknown.
I discovered the Kismet books by accident and have been happily
hooked ever since and am now a squeeing fangirl of Saintcrows dark, in your face,
gritty and full of action writing style. My addiction to her novels isnt made any
better by the fact that this newest addition to the Kismet series is just as good as I had
hoped it would be. Jill Kismet reminds me of a darker, more tortured female version of
Butchers wry-talking Harry Dresden is that blasphemous?
Shes not afraid to tell it like it is and will take on the bad guy no matter the
odds. Which is probably more dangerous than common sense but its a formula that
works for me. Kismet is no shrinking violet to gore and violence.
I read somewhere online that Heavens Spite is the
second to last in this series. Saintcrow is not messing around with long and protracted
relationships drawn out over some forty books worth of reading. And I take my hat off to
the author for one cliffhanger of an ending. Dirty pool! Im not sure whether to
thank her or curse her, but Im avidly looking forward to the next instalment.
