SYNOPSIS:When the Devil needs a rogue demon killed, who does he call?

The Score: The Devil hires Dante to eliminate a rogue demon: Vardimal Santino. In return, he will let her live. It's an offer she can't refuse.
The Catch: How do you kill something that can't die?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dante Valentine is the best necromance there is, and she is called by the Devil himself to do a job for him. This job is to kill the guy who just happens to be a demon that killed one of her friends. She is paired up with a demon named Jaf. She sets out on an adventure that takes her clear across the world to get this guy. Meanwhile she has a run on with her ex, a member of the MOB family. So between evading her old feelings for him, and finding her friends killer/demon, and figuring her feelings for Jaf, it turns into a wild ride all the way around for Dante. Great book, loved the world setting the plot and the character the ending left me a little sad though, but we will see how the other books go.
