I know its supposed to lend the character the feeling of confusion, of “what the hell” but once you read it 30, times on the same page saintcgow lessyou either give up, or just skip over the echos, cause what the hell, it gets old. Joyce Frantz marked it as to-read Dec 03, This go round was still a action packed and twisted as the first book but Dante was so broken in this book. We appreciate your feedback. Marked by the Moon. I am really disapointed to say that this wasn’t as good as the first one: I felt that the story c I really liked book one in this series, but I wasn’t quite as taken by the sequel though I still enjoyed my time with these characters.

Do I really want to spend hours reading about an empathy-less egomaniac?

And the dangers are far more palatable, with spooky flashbacks and a villain who lilit make your flesh crawl. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Clare dooley marked it as to-read Dec 14, No trivia or quizzes yet.

Rigger Hall was closed and abandoned after the enquiry into his abuses which was over 10 years ago, so what does it have to do with the psions who are being murdered now?


I did like the flashbacks to when she was a child and forced to endure punishments at the hands of a sadistic head master. Now psychics all over the city are being savagely murderedand a piece of the past Dante thought she’d buried is stalking the night with a vengeance.

Lizzy Dalrymple marked it as to-read Jan 19, Aug 04, Andrea rated it liked it. There is a historical, legal and even scientific context which is integrated into the story although some of it is delivered as part of a couple of “research” essays and a glossary at deac end, which some might consider a lazy approach, but I actually quite enjoyed that part, it certainly read very authentic.

Jun 27, Gloria Mundi rated it liked it Shelves: Thankfully, reviews for the 3rd book in the series are quite good, so I won’t be dropping this series. I like the overall premise of a female bounty hunter working free lance for the devil I’m hoping that now that things in the story seem to be a little settled, maybe we will continue with the less sniveling Dante Valentine.

I liked how tough and courageous Dante was in the first book. Nichtvren vampires and werecain werewolves make an appearance and we get a better understanding of saintcroa nature of some of the other types of psionic ability.

Does it really take a character almost a year to figure out that she’s not normal anymore? And my biggest problem was Jeph. Sure, some people are like this. I mean ssintcrow Rigger Hall incidents were years ago.
