Review: Heaven's Spite by Lilith Saintcrow

Heaven's Spite (Jill Kismet #5)
by: Lilith Saintcrow
$7.99 mass market paperback
Orbit Books
Paranormal Fantasy
Released: November 2010

A new hellbreed is coming to town, and the first thing it plans to do is eliminate Jill as a threat.  Since she doesn't plan on rolling over and letting it kill her, that means she must pull out the big guns to fight this newest threat.  Too bad the big guns include Perry and Belisa, the woman who killed her teacher.  She'd do just about anything to avoid having to work with them, but she has no choice, for if she falls, the city falls with her. 

But with the stakes so high, can she continue to balance on the razor's edge of damnation, or will this case prove too much for even a Hunter's strength of will?

These stories are darkly compelling, showing us the darkness in our own souls in such a way that we recoil in fear, thinking, "that could never be me, I would never make such a choice.  Thing is, Jill's world shows us what people are willing to trade for in order to feel the corruption in their own souls, and it's terrifying to see.  Lilith Saintcrow does an amazing job capturing the dark side of a person's soul, and what happens when evil gets too big of a foothold.  It's a great series, one that sticks with you long after you put the book down.
