Working for the Devil by Lilith Saintcrow

Working for the Devil

Lilith Saintcrow

Danny Valentine is a feisty, determined and talented Necromancer and is chosen by Lucifer to kill the demon, Santino - one of the most dangerous tasks she has ever undertaken. Action packed with gritty language to match the dark story.

Extract

We ended up on the platform, me sliding my sword reluctantly back into the sheath, the demon watching as the nurse hurried her little girl up the steps. The stop was deserted, sound echoing off ceramic tiles as the train slid along its reactive-greased tracks. I took a deep breath, tried to calm my racing heart.
