Review: Angel Town by Lilith Saintcrow

Angel Town (Jill Kismet #6)
by: Lilith Saintcrow
$7.99 mass market paperback
Orbit Books
Paranormal Fantasy
Released: November 2011

Bad choices can lead to worse consequences, and nobody knows this better than Jill Kismet.  After a bad choice leads to a deadly confrontation with Perry, she wakes up in her own grave.  Problem is, she doesn't remember how she died, nor who she is.  All she knows is that evil must be stopped, and she's the only one to do it.

Hopefully in doing so it will unlock the buried memories of the past, although some things are best left forgotten.

This is the final book in the Jill Kismet series, and I'm both satisfied and disappointed that it's over.  This book was a little slower paced, mostly in that Jill starts the book dead, then slowly gets her memories back over the course of the book.  Even though the action is less than usual, it doesn't get boring.  This book really ties up any loose ends the first five books may have left, and although I'm bummed it's over, the ending was enough to satisfy me. 

This book did remind me of her Dante Valentine series, mostly because of the bizarre triangle of characters between Jill, Perry, and Saul.  For those of you who aren't familiar, Dante Valentine is Lilith Saintcrow's previous five book series.  All I'll say about that is I like the Jill Kismet series way better.  Anyway, great end to a great series, and I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next.
