Lilith Saintcrow - The devil's right hand

Dante Valentine, a necromancer and bounty hunter has inherited demonic powers, which she got from her demon lover Japhrimel. Now she’s living quietly with Japhrimel and she likes it. So when Japh tells her that Lucifer wants another meeting with her, she’s not thrilled. But nobody tells Lucifer, the Prince of Hell no, so she goes. Apparently Lucifer needs a new right hand and he wants Dante for the job. After some negotiations between Japh and Lucifer, Dante finds herself contracted for the next seven years of her life. Her job is to hunt four rogue demons, who’ve escaped hell and Lucifer wants them back before other demons decides to do the same thing and he looses control over them.

After the meeting Japh sent Dante home, telling her to stay inside and wait for him there. But Dante’s trust in Japh begins to fade when she’s attacked by demons and must fight for her life. The only thing for her to do is run and finds another companion in order to stay alive, while she tracks down those four escaped Greater Flight demons. Dante knows exactly who she wants as companion, Lucas “Deathless”Villalobos a man so fearless, that even the God of Death refuses to let Lucas eternal rest.

The devil’s right hand by Lilith Saintcrow is the third novel in her Dante Valentine series and I’ve to say I loved it. The moment you pick up the book and starts reading, you’ve been lured into a world where demons and other beings are normal.

In this novel you clearly can see Dante’s struggling with her trust in Japh, he refuses to tell Dante exactly what’s going on and she discovers he has full demon powers again, after their meeting with Lucifer. Can she trust him like she always had or will he double cross her to get his place back in hell?

I have to say Dante has many reasons to be paranoia and after what she’s been through I can relate to that. Okay sometimes I wanted to smack her and tell her to trust the man she loves, that he will do anything in his power to protect her. But if you read the previous novels you know Dante is different and quite stubborn and I like her just the way she is.

Well another addiction is born because I’m totally hooked on this series and cannot wait to read the next novel Saint City Sinners, where Dante and Japh gets help from Hellesvront agents Vann & McKinley, another necromancer Leander and Lucas Villalobos to continue their journey.
