Ok this one is only getting 2 1/2 stars only because it finally made sence in the end. But it was dragging like mad to get there! I enjoyed her first book, but this one was hard to swallow. Dante talks non stop about what she hates about being what she is, and I can't see anyone beating themselves up that badly. Talk about a mood killer. If I would have been Jace I would have walked out on her since she is too depressing for words.
But if i'm going to get through this whole series I had to read this one, I just hope the other's are as good.
This is the female bad ass James Bond, only her name is Dante Valentine and she's a bounty hunter. Girl works out, and has super poweres, a tatoo on her face, sparking gems, boyfriends, communing with the dead. Kinda like Anita Blake... Action packed, and when the first and second of her book ends, you look for the next one, they leave you wanting more.
In this book Dante has to confront her past. It's a very emotional ride. The abuse that was heaped on the students of Rigger Hall was extreme. The students have spent their short lives trying to forget, Dante included. When a serial killer starts murdering members from the school the past starts to rear it's ugly head. The content is no pretty but well handled.
