I don’t saijtcrow remember much about this book, now that I’ve read the third one, but I do remember that there was far too much angst for my liking. Does it make for a change from cookie-cutter Spunky Sues?
There is a line from Eddie that is repeated over and over Return to Book Page. That was two stars down for me. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

I will be frank and tell you that the main reason why I love this series is Jeph. Unfortunately Valentine encounters yet another tragedy in this book — a new loss that I hated. She did show up albeit risng weaker version of herself a moment here and there, but the reasons I liked the first book were not present enough to enjoy this book. She does a lot of talking to herself. The reader doesn’t have to relieve every second of the torture, just the fall out.
We get quite a bit more detail in this instalment saintcrlw it is impeccably thought out. The grim flashbacks that hinted her former childhood was horrible is even more in color and complex now. The problem is not that Valentine is a viciously independent loner with a chip on her shoulder the size of Texas.

Dead Man Rising, Part 1
Because just as I was ready to throw down the book in frustration and read something else for a while, everything changes. The story jump started into action and never really slowed down, which I personally loved. Dante Valentine, bounty hunter and necromance, has something of early Anita Blake about her and I for one like it!
Dead Man Rising the second book in this series was a disappointment. By pageI had been reengaged and moved to tears.
