Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first in a hot new urban fantasy series by Lilith Saintcrow, Night Shift introduces Jill Kismet, a female exorcist who works outside the boundaries of the church.

Review:

"In this series inaugural urban fantasy from Saintcrow (Working for the Devil), Jill Kismet is a Hunter, which means her life largely consists of tracking and slaying hellbreeds. To make her job easier, she has struck an unholy bargain with hellbreed Perry: he lends her his supernatural powers; she sits for emotionally trying s&m encounters with him once a month. When something supernatural massacres five city police officers, she senses that the killer is a rogue Were, which means that other Weres have to be called in to hunt him — but somehow he's capable of screening his tracks. Matters soon get even more complicated before an explosive finale. With a past as a teenage prostitute, Jill is a much darker character than most fantasy heroines, and her grit is palpable. The realm of hellbreeds and Weres remains somewhat murky, but Saintcrow gives herself ample room to develop a world around the promising Jill. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

From the book:

Not everyone can take on the things that go bump in the night.

Not everyone tries.

But Jill Kismet is not just anyone.

She’s a Hunter, trained by the best — and in over her head.

Welcome to the night shift...
