Hunter's Prayer (Jill Kismet, Hunter, Book 2) by Lilith Saintcrow



Автор: Saintcrow Lilith, Книга: Hunter& Prayer, Серия: Jill Kismet, Жанр: мистика. Garamond, maybe, or Book Antiqua. Or one of those old-fashioned fonts, but no frilly Edwardian script. Jill Kismet, Dealer in Dark Things. Spiritual Exterminator. Slayer of Hell’s Minions. It is the Hunter’s Prayer.

Hunter's Praye is about a paranormal slayer type, but in an alternate world where our hero, Jill Kismet, works closely with police. She has a were-jaguar boyfriend, who I think is smoking hot and too good for her. She also has some sort of covenant with a demon named Pericles, who grants her supernatural powers beyond her human reach, in exchange for an hour spent with him every month. This is the second book in the series, the demon relationship has some strong S&M undertones. In regular Lilith Saintcrow fashion, this series is pretty dark. Jill had an extremely difficult and traumatizing past on the streets, but her mentor Mikhail helped her turn into the hunter she is today. I duly swear myself to the service of the citizens of Santa Luz, to protect and to succor. I swear to act without fear or favor, to protect the innocent and to safeguard the living.

Books by lilith saintcrow. Dante valentine novels. It’s enough to make any hunter snort with disgust. Really, they should know that there are precious few places on earth a hunter won’t go when she has a serious hard-on for someone. I turned around, put my back to the bar. Scanned the dance floor.

Jill Kismet, Dealer in Dark Things. Demon Slayer - it's not the type of work you can put on a business card. But every city has people like me. Usually the police have us on payroll as consultants, because what ordinary cop can face down a Were or an ordinary shapechanger, or an Assyrian demon? Not to mention the silvers or the Black Mist, the adepts of Sorrow House or of the Middle Way? What ordinary cop stands a chance against a Trader, even? People disappear all the time, it's an epidemic; some of the disappearances are murder, some are fugitives, some are.

And Jill Kismet just might be able to get revenge against an old enemy. Someone wants Jill dead again. Sometimes, even when you're Jill Kismet, you don't have a prayer. Saintcrow's true gift is her ability to take extremely flawed characters and make you care about them. Romantic Times Dark, gritty, urban fantasy at its best.

Hunter's Praye is about a paranormal slayer type, but in an alternate world where our hero, Jill Kismet, works closely with police. She has a were-jaguar boyfriend, who I think is smoking hot and too good for her. She also has some sort of covenant with a demon named Pericles, who grants her supernatural powers beyond her human reach, in exchange for an hour spent with him every month.

This is the second book in the series, the demon relationship has some strong S&M undertones. Pericles makes Jill tie him up and whip him, or beat on him, or whatever else (though it doesn't get explicit). Hoping she'll crack, and abandon her humanity.

In the book a bunch of hookers are getting murdered, young ones, who were pregnant. Jill, formerly of the street walker life, takes it personally. But Jill is running on fumes, misses the big picture, and gets caught up in events, that threaten to take her out permanently.

If you liked the first book of this series, you're going to love this one! Hunter's Prayer is one long high of suspense and surprise from beginning to end. And the end only leaves you wanting more of the same. I hate reviews that contain spoilers so all I'll say is, Kismet survives....

I love Jill Kismet , she is fierce, cunning, flawed, but a warrior with a huge heart. A character you root for.

Been reading this series all along and this one did not disappoint! Awesome addition and can't wait for the next installment!

Once I got started with this series I could not put it down. The characters are interesting and different, the world believable. Jill is a complex heroine and easy to identify with. It is a fascinating and fast paced read. A series I will happily reread.

"I am not a nice person" -- Jill Kismet

Jill Kismet is a Hunter -- she keeps her city safe by tracking and destroying the creatures of the Nightside -- those things that come out of hell to prey on humans. The cops call on Jill when there's a crime that seems to involve paranormal beings. Jill takes care of it while the cops cover it up. Jill's a badass -- she can beat up anybody -- but she also has some special powers of sorcery and healing which she got by making a bargain with a hellspawn named Perry. Perry keeps Jill alive and in return she gives him two hours of her "time" each month.

In Night Shift, the first book in Lilith Saintcrow's JILL KISMET series (reviewed by Robert), we met all the main characters, but you don't really need to read Night Shift to understand what's going on in this second book, Hunter's Prayer. Saintcrow quickly catches up new readers and Jill is dealing with a new threat to the Nightside this time. Teenage prostitutes are being brutally murdered and eviscerated and their internal organs and eyeballs are being harvested. Jill is called in to solve the crime and it's soon clear that whatever is killing those girls is after Jill, too. Fortunately Jill's got backup from her sidekick lover, a werecat named Saul, and Perry's contributions are keeping her alive.

After recently trying and rejecting Lilith Saintcrow's DANTE VALENTINE series, it's not surprising that her JILL KISMET series isn't working for me either. I tried it because it's recently been released on audio by Brilliance Audio and they sent me copies to review. As with the DANTE VALENTINE series, the audio is excellent. Joyce Bean does the narration and is completely convincing in her male and female roles. If you're going to read JILL KISMET, definitely try the audio.

As for me, however, I felt the same way about Jill Kismet's story as I did about Dante Valentine's. That's because Jill Kismet and Dante Valentine are essentially the same person; I couldn't tell them apart. Each woman is, as I said in my reviews of the first two DANTE VALENTINE books, "a bossy hostile foul-mouthed bitch" and "a cold-hearted drama queen." Both have had hard lives with terrible pasts involving sexual abuse, both work freelance for the cops, both wear leather pants and combat boots, both are only partly human, both have a hot paranormal sidekick and a second guy on the fringe, and both spend a lot of time mourning the loss of a lover and whining about guilt and pain. I disliked both of them. A related issue is Saintcrow's tendency to allow her heroines to brood, repeating the same angsty thoughts on nearly every page. Similarly, the language tends to be repetitive, which frequent reminders of, for example in Jill Kismet's case, that the silver charms in her hair are tied with red thread and tinkle when she moves.

Another reason I don't like JILL KISMET (in case you need any more) is that it's unrelentingly dark. Gruesome murder scenes are described in detail (including maggots and shreds of muscles and missing eyeballs), people are constantly vomiting and there are buckets of blood, there is constant cursing, Jill is beating people up all the time, there are underage whores and sexual and drug abuse. It is all ugliness with no beauty to offset it. Well, some readers may feel that the sweet relationship between Jill and Saul is enough beauty, but even that is tense and precarious because of Perry. For me, it wasn't enough.

I have found nothing to enjoy in the JILL KISMET series so far. The heroine's a bitch, the story is unpleasant and unoriginal, the humor is not funny, the writing lacks beauty. What's the point?

The first book was just okay. It was promising and I knew the series was going to pick up but man oh man was I blown away with Hunter's Prayer. Finally, Saul has become a more developed character and I actually buy their love story. I think they balance each other out fairly well.

Jill(Jillian) Kismet aka Jilly-Kill aka Kill aka Judith is more kickass in this book, if that's even possible. I am so glad this book was less focused on the flashbacks with her and Mickhail(her former Master/Trainer/Lover). It told me of the influence Saul was having on her. This book definitely was a showcase of her pain, vulnerability and the core strength that only got stronger this time around.

The case was centered around pregnant teenage hookers being murdered by having most of their organs eaten/taken and their eyes gouged out for a ritual planned by the Sorrows to bring an Elder God into the world to reak havock in it.This case was extremely personal to Jill and it showed, she killed tons of demons and people all around and I was jist like "You go girl!". The pimps in this book deserved what happened to them.

And omfg! The way she stood up to Perry in this book was Grade A. I always look forward to their ecounters; they're always so deeply amusing. I love Perry as much as I hate him. He provides an edge to this story, a cruel but very amusing one. He really messed up in this book with Jill. I mean he knew a lot of what happening regarding the case, because he was partly a part of it;which goes against the deal they made. Her discovering that he tried to kill Saul didn't help either.

And the drama continues...can't wait for the next. This book will definitely change your mind in a positive way regarding whether to continue the series.
