" And yet we come roaring back with this one. Danny's broken, but she's not giving up. Once again. Rough. Tough. Hard to bluff. "

" This is a great series. I found myself lost in it. Dante and jaf get the ending they need. I agree, "flying scateboard are cool". "

" The story of how a strong independent woman turned into a abused, bitchy, clingy empty shell. Don't get me wrong, the story sort of (at least to me) justifies the change and thus makes it credible. Also the weird relationships seem somewhat believable. I just didn't like it. And this last book was hard to follow. Too much fighting and plot-turns :-P "

" I just had to know how it ended! That is the only excuse I had for continuing to read a series about a character that is both a badass & at the same time the BIGGEST whiner I've ever continued to read!!! I will NEVER read anything by this author again!! So much potential only to be let down so badly & so repeatedly!! "

" I really liked Dante's strong and honorable personality in the first two books and how she resolved the issues placed before her. However, Dante became more unlikeable as each book progressed, until I couldn't stand her in To Hell and Back. Dante is a rage filled, idiotic, untrusting, immature, hypocritical b*****. Dante seems to have no qualms about killing anyone and constantly has the desire to stab or kill people if they so much as talked when she was in a 'mood', her lover and team mates included. She has a very strong dislike for anyone who lies or betrays her. This is very understandable but she lies and betrays those close to her without a problem so she has no right to point fingers. She treats Japh horribly and doesn't trust him despite him constantly proving he would do anything to protect her. Granted, Japh doesn't explain everything that is happening but I don't recall an instant when he blatantly lied to Dante despite her insistence that he has. What I cannot comprehend and what horribly frustrated me is that Dante seems to believe whatever Eve says but wont even trust her lover who has proven his loyalty. Dante even goes so far in her trust with Eve that she is willing to fight and kill Japh to protect her.
Another issue I have with this series is all the things that were left unresolved and unexplained. I did like the overall plot of the series and I feel Saintcrow did a wonderful job in portraying a world where magic, demons, and gods are considered normal, but it seems like Saintcrow felt like the readers didn't deserve answers and closure. Why did Anubis ask Dante not to kill Mercy, what exactly is a Fallen and a Hedaira, who exactly IS Japh, why does Japh have a gray streak and wrinkles once he came back from hell, and what exactly is Vann and Maxwell? There are many other questions I have that were never answered but those are the main questions that come to mind. I really liked Japh as a character but it does not further your plot when the character with all the answers never reveals those answers.
Unfortunately, I was so utterly disgusted with Dante and the end of the series that I never plan to read a Lilith Saintcrow book again. The reason I have such strong negative feelings for the last few books is because I REALLY liked the first 2 books and feel very let down as a reader. The reason I gave To Hell and Back a 3 star rating instead of something lower is only because of the first two books in the series. "

" I'm torn about this series as a whole - I love the world and system of magic in it, but I just don't get the Dante/Japhrimel relationship at all. "

" Entertainment, pure and simple. Not a bad book to read. "

" It's over! Sniff! Although, it's nice to read a series that actually ends every once in a while. "

" I loved this whole series! Danny Valentine was a spectacular character. I couldnt put it down at all. the only thing i didnt like and didnt quite understand was why Danny and Japhrimel fought so much? "
Aaron | 10/16/2012
" Last book in the series (possibly). Wrapped up all of Valentine's loose ends, mostly satisfactorily and ended with a nice little Friday-esque epilogue. The writing is overall ok, though the third and fourth books had plot elements that almost made me want to pull my hair out. "

" This is hands down one of my favorite series. I wish there were more but this book leaves off at a good point. I do enjoy the fact they ARE a finished series. Very, very nice set of books. You done good Ms. Saintcrow. "
