Jul 1, 2011
5 Hours
Ages 18+
Bounty hunting is a helluva job, but it pays the bills. And it lets necromance Dante Valentine forget her issues. Like struggling with her half-demon side and the memory of her lover's death.

Now psychics all over the city are being savagely murdered and a piece of the past Dante thought she'd buried is stalking the night with a vengeance. Too bad she's got no way to tell which fiend - or friend - to trust. Or that her most horrifying nightmares are gathering to take one kick-ass bounty hunter down for the count.

But that's only the beginning. The Devil just called. He's looking for Dante's lover - the one he killed...

Much better than the first book in some ways by JBlack (Posted on 8/22/2015)
The storyline was more interesting than the first book/audio. Loved the plot! Music was still too loud, but overall this audio was still enjoyable. My main complaint is Dante's whiny pining for Jaff. I just didn't get the instant soulfull connection that was meant to occur between the two. I still think that Gabe is far more interesting character.
In the aftermath of the ending, I'm not sure if I want to continue with the rest of the series. But it's worth listening to for you all to decide for yourselves.
Hard to Shake by Catdaddy (Posted on 10/11/2014)
With a future setting, a complex mythology, proficient rain and noir mill eau, the story has an undeniable "blade runner " vibe.

The exposition will require some effort to process if one has not listened to Book I, “Working for the Devil," which is entirely a catalyst for this story. Moreover, there's a lot of jargon (so much so that even the digital download version contains an audio glossary in the last file), which gives the story a deeper authenticity.

And oh! so dark. This is a brutal story. It is Colleen Delaney's performance that makes this drama work so well. Her first person narration sets a mood that is hard to shake off. Delaney is essentially playing three rolls: Narrator, the character lead, and her internal monologue. These three voices usually dovetail in the same scene. If there was any justice in the world - and as this is a movie (in your mind) - Colleen Delaney with an Oscar for her performance, particularly in the fifth hour. She shows every inch as much emotional range as Meryl Streep has ever delivered. It is powerful, transformative stuff emotionally raw.

Dante Valentine rates a solid R for strong language and violence throughout, though these are appropriate and integral to the story.

Great story, voice acting awsome. Only thing Dante is getting whinney. I want to slap her.
