Dead Man Rising (Dante Valentine, #2) - Lilith Saintcrow I only read this one to see if Japh was really dead. Again, the urban fantasy part was pretty good, but Danny spent alot of time whining and moaning and bitching, and walking all over Jace. I hated that, there was more of a connection between Jace and Dante then there ever was between Dante and Japh. I liked the Jace the most out of all the characters. When he died, I cried. This is where the series ends for me.
