Another push for another amazing book that I just have to gush about. Lilith Saintcrow's new book, Working for the Devil is officially out! This is an excellent read and everyone I've shared it with so far has loved it.
I know I've been pushing pushing pushing this book in the communities, but I wanted to just remind everyone now that it is officially out. Here is the snippet I wrote after I first read it, for those who would like to hear what the story is about:
Dante "Danny" Valentine is a Necromance in a dark, urban future filled with psionic supernaturals and anti-grav vehicles. She can summon spirits of the dead for brief periods of time. She can also tap into psionic energy called Power and she totes a badass katana (japanese sword). She is also a bounty hunter, which helps her pay off her mortgage in between Necromance gigs. But when a demon shows up on her doorway and drags her to Hell, she is given a mission by the devil himself. She has to track down a demon and kill him. She's ticked because she's not an assassin, but she really has no choice, so she reluctantly agrees...until she finds out she has a personal score to settle with her target.
Let me just tell you...it's great. It is 2 parts old-school Anita Blake combined with 1 part Dead Witch Walking and 1 part Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld. And don't let yourself be thrown off by the whole futuristic, anti-grav hovercar thing...it is just a setting for supernatural, paranormal, demon/psionic awesome action/story/hunt/thrill/etc. It is fantastic and I cannot wait for everyone else to read it and agree with me. It just makes me feel all warm and book-nerdy inside. :-D
So go, my pretties. Fly out and buy this book, read it, have a bookgasm, and report back. Tell your friends and tell me if you enjoy it because I love to hear when my suggestions are well-received.
