So I finished Saint City Sinners. As I closed the book, I said (to my cats): "Oh F***!" Wow - Lili certainly shocked me to my toes here.

That's all I'm sayin' Mazuko! Not another word until you've read it :)

Have any of you read her Watcher series? I picked up Working for the Devil to start reading but I was wondering about her other series too.
Sometimes I really hate forums like these because my TBR pile gets so big...  ;D

I've read the first three watcher books.  They're a nice easy read, but I like the Dante books a lot better.

I read maybe one of her Watcher series, but didn't like it so much. This is very odd, given that I'm completely addicted to her Dante Valentine series. I'll definitely buy her Jill Kismet when it comes out, though.

The Watchers series is very easy reading and rather more romance than fantasy. The pairing up of the characters more prominent than the story line. The Society series is a bit more story focused.
My favorite of her books written before the Dante series is Steelflower though.

Yep. That was my reaction, too. ARRGHHHGHG! How, I mean HOW could Lili leave us hanging like that!? I love it, I hate it, I love it.... I can't make up my mind. I love how she totally keeps us on edge. It's one thing for sure, it's almost impossible to predict what these characters will do. I hated Japh, then I loved Japh, then I got really really mad at Japh, then I thought he was okay, now I'm back to being mad. Maybe. I don't know!! There are no cookie cutter characters here. Hey, is there a way to do spoiler tags here? I want to ask a question, but I don't want to give anything away to people who haven't read it, yet.
