Angel Town is book 6 and the last instalment in the Jill Kismet books, a dark and gritty Urban Fantasy series written by Lilith Saintcrow. This is one of my all time favourite series so if you haven't read or heard of Jill Kismet before here is a little background to her.

Jill was a teenager working as a prostitute the night Mikhail picked her out of a snowbank and offered her a new life. Over the following years Mikhail trained Jill to become a hunter, one who patrols the nightside where demons

Lilith Saintcrow's writing isn't for everyone. It's dark and lyrical, throwing aside grammar rules to build tension and emotion. I love it. Every minute of it.

This is the final book in the Jill Kismet story arc. In the last book Jill died, sacrificing herself so that the demon Perry couldn't get his greedy claws any deeper into her city through her. Now for most people that would be THE END. Not for unlucky Jill. Instead she wakes in her own grave with no name, no memory and the feeling of wasp

I felt obligated to finish this series, even though the last few books were a chore to read. This had all the makings of a good series (dark world, more action than romance, anti-hero), but it never really clicked for me. I get that Jill is gritty and not your typical hero, but she ended up being unlikeable for me. I slowly began to realize that she's a bigot. She'll kill hellbreed just for breathing, if she can get away with it. I guess they are supposed to be evil, but it's mostly implied and ...more

This was an absolutely stunning conclusion to what has been one of my favorite urban fantasy series. Nobody writes visceral, blood-guts-and-ichor, guns- knives-and-silver bullets, heaven-and-hell, demons-and-Weres, dark urban fantasy like Lilith Saintcrow. I can't really find any faults at all (with the exception of a small detail: A name, of course...) (view spoiler)

Angel Town, the last book in the Jill Kismet series, opens several months after Jill (Heaven's Spite) made a stunning decision that left her friends and colleagues struggling with her disappearance. The author graphically challenges the reader to hold on and allow her to write, one final time, about Jill and the fight she has coming ahead of her as she awakes from the dead in a her own grave, knowing that her flesh has rotted

If I thought I knew the meaning of the words intense or gritty, Ms Saintcrow gave me a lesson. And what a lesson or maybe I should have said what a ride.
The action is non-stop until the very last page and nothing is ever as it seems.
It's a great ending to a very good series, even if I admit there were quite a few similarities with the last book of the Danny Valentine series. In a note to reader Ms Saintcrow declares that Jill and Danny are very different, as the first is whole when the second i

This was confusing to pick up on having not read the other five books in the series. It was surprisingly long (compared to the HarperTeen lengths I'd been used to reading) but surprisingly good. Considering my ride with Saintcrow's Strange Angels series was pretty shaky and bumpy, I was pleasantly surprised. Her adult books are much quicker reads and frankly much better. I still wasn't totally enthralled, though; there were some moments when I had to convince myself I didn't want to put it down, ...more

Angel Town is book 6 and the last instalment in the Jill Kismet books, a dark and gritty Urban Fantasy series written by Lilith Saintcrow. As with Saintcrow's other great series featuring Dante Valentine, I'm sad to see Jill's story come to an end, but happy to say that at least she was ushered out in style.

Jill is a kick-ass character with plenty of flaws and insecurities to keep her human. Her love for Saul, the gentle werecat that won’t leave her side, is heartbreaking in its intensity, and o

This is a phenomenal book. God I LOVE this series. Really, this is the best Urban Fantasy series ever and Lilith Saintcrow brings it to a wonderful and satisfying end.

Go read this book. Go read the series. Do it, do it now.

Amazing and excellent.
♥ Ashleigh ♥  contrary to popular belief im not actually mad!
well that was... interesting.

i put this book off for ages because i was dreading what happened to Jill in the last book, i didnt know how the author could come back from that, but i finally balled up my courage and read the damn book and i have to say im glad i did, its certainly not the best book in the series but its the last one and needed to be read.

i was having a bit of a problem with this book until right towards the end, i just couldnt really get into it. it was uber gritty which i loved

If you thought Heaven's Spite was an intense book, this one is really intense! This takes off right after the events - those shocking, cliffhanger, "Oh My God!" events - of the last novel. Those final events of the last novel cause Jill to wake up in a strange place - without any clue or idea of what or who she is - what she was doing, what's going on. There is absolutely nothing. She somehow makes it to a diner, where a mysterious man buys her a meal...and she begins to remember a few things. W ...more

I loved this series when I first started it and whipped right through the first four books. However, Book 5, Heaven's Spite, was just too grim for me. There's always been a tremendous amount of violence, blood and guts in this series, but at the same time, I never got the sense that all was hopeless. Unfortunately, in book 5, I did get that sense and I had to put it down. I never was able to finish it, but I had no doubt that I would be reading Angel Town, the final book, as soon as it came out. ...more

This is the last book in the series and it ended in a way I thought was fitting and in-character for everyone - not something I have found often. After the cliff-hanger ending of the last book and reading one of the other series by this author Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) by Lili St. Crow I was really worried I would hate this ending and thus ruin the entire series for me. Thankfully that wasn't the case and this is probably in equal standing with the book 5 as my favourites of the series.

SPOILERS FROM HEAVEN'S SPITE IN REVIEW, DO NOT READ IF HAVEN'T READ HEAVEN'S SPITE AND PLAN TO DO SO!



Lilith Saintcrow's final book in the Jill Kismet series, Angel Town, wraps things up nicely!

As you might remember Jill died last time at the end, so when the new book came out I was wondering what was going to happen. And the answer was quite simple, she came back. That's nothing new in the world of the supernatural, it's more shocking when someone stays dead! So Jill returns, yet her memory is

Jill Kismet kicks your fanny sideways.....

Just finished the six-book series of Jill Kismet and I am way tired! That's because I literally couldn't put the series down. I had read books 1-4 quite a while back, and remembered that I enjoyed them tremendously. When I noticed that five and six were out, I decided to do what I do with excellent series books and reread them from the beginning. That is when, of course, I remembered that the LAST time I read these books, I also managed to lose a ton of

While I was sad that Angel Town was the last book of one of my favorite series¸ Jill Kismet was certainly ushered out in style. Not that I expected anything less. As soon as I finished Heaven’s Spite, I immediately started Angel Town because, well, at the end of Heaven’s Spite, Jill dies. I mean, Ms. Saintcrow really didn’t leave me a choice. I’m not giving anything away since it says right in the cover copy that she’s bac

If you aren't caught up on this series I would advise you to avoid anything about this book as it will spoil the ending from the last one. And what an ending it was! When I read it I was furious with it, but understood why Jill did what she did.

Her waking up in a grave and clawing her way out was sure a bang up way to start this book out! I really felt like the first quarter of the book was confusing, but that was to be expected. Jill was confused herself and we were taking the path with her. Sh

I have a habit of picking up books in a series out of order. Got this from the library just because it seemed kind of interesting. Maybe that affected my enjoyment of the book, I don't know, but it didn't work for me.

Maybe it was because I arrived late, reading the last book in the series first(!), but the start was promising. Jill Kismet wakes up in a grave with no memory. I figure, hey, that's fine because I don't know what's going on anyway. I'll learn as she does. It didn't really work out t

Chapter 1

I shivered, pushed the door open. My feet left bloody prints on faded blue-speckled linoleum.

The diner was deserted. Long white lunch counter with chrome napkin holders, pies under glass domes, and the smell of industrial coffee fought with the reek around me. The night wind had scrubbed the worst of the stink away, but I still felt it like a cloud breathing from my skin.

Why I was worried about that when I was dripping with sandy, crusted filth, bare-and bloody-footed, and wild-haired i

Sixth and last in the Jill Kismet urban fantasy series revolving around a hunter who works with the police in Santa Luz, New Mexico.


My Take
Damn, Saintcrow really kept me wondering up to the very end. I was very happy that Jill had actually managed to survive, er, come back from events in Heaven's Spite, although Perry certainly was scary to see! That demon was just manic!

I rather wish we had gotten more details about the war that had erupted in the months Jill was dead. I totally hadn't expect

I've always loved Lili's writing. It's very intense, furious and powerful. Angel Town is no exception, although it's not my favorite book in the series.

There is not much I can say without giving away some spoilers. Jill's awakening in her own grave is pretty gruesome. She doesn't remember who she is, but manages to find a diner in the desert and then get a ride into town.

Her memory comes back in bits and pieces, but the world she left is not the world she c

Jill Kismet is back from the grave in this explosive conclusion to Lilith Saintcrow's urban fantasy series.

She wakes up in her own grave. She doesn't know who put her there, she doesn't know where she is, and she has no friends or family.

She only knows two things: She has a job to do: cleansing the night of evil. And she knows her name.

Jill Kismet.

All I can say is.... wow. A stunning conclusion to this series that has kept my heart in my throat the entire time. I have haunted bookstores and Amazon for each new release and I am sad that it's over. I loved this world and I was completely committed to Jill, Saul and all the rest. I was stunned by the revelations and the twists and I was at the edge of my seat the entire time. Once again, I was drawn into this story, front and center, and I felt like I was racing alongside Jill as she tried t ...more

Is anyone else feeling like this is the last season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer here? Jill wakes up in a grave after a huge sacrifice and doesn't know what is going on? It kind of felt like that to me. I have to say, I had to read through my review of book 5 and I honestly don't remember a damn thing. I can't even remember the review I wrote. How odd is this? I think it has something to do with the way Ms. Saintcrow writes - all f-ed up.

At times it is hard to follow the storyline because I

This is the last book of the Jill Kismet, kick-ass bitch series and I've been purposely putting off reading this book because I haven't wanted Jill's story to end. I said it when I first started this series back in December of 2011 and it still holds true one and a half years later: "This series looks to be one of the best Dark Urban Fantasies I've read"!
I tore through the first 5 books of the series in the last week of 2011 and the first week of 2012 but I refused to read this book knowing tha

It’s so sad to see a series that you have been following for a while come to an end, but seeing it end so well is definitely a plus.

I have loved the Jill Kismet series since 2009 and a fan of Lilith Saintcrow from then on too. Lilith knows how to write the nitty gritty to a point that you will be pulling out your hair and saying “why, G-d, why?”.

Jill has literally been through hell and it was a balm to my heart seeing her get som

I confess: I peeked at the ending first. It is not that I didn't trust the author to do right by Jill and her motley crew; it's that I knew I couldn't survive another ending like we got in Heaven's Spite. So sue me. And knowing how the last page went didn't really help as the story unfolded; I began to think that I had, perhaps, read it wrong!

Ms Saintcrow managed to ratchet the tension to almost unbearable levels as Jill gears up for her biggest fight yet. I loved all the twists and turns; I esp

Angel Town is book 6 of the Jill Kismet series. I read the first 5 because I got them as a set, however, even as a set, I couldn't finish reading Angel Town. The biggest issue I had with the series is the main characters didn't seem to learn or change or grow, keeping everything seemingly the same and it got to be monotonous. I made it less than 1/4 of the way through book 6 before giving up on it.

The final book in the Jill Kismet series brings closure as would be expected. The opening of the book has Jill literally crawling out of the grave with no memories no understanding of what has happened or where she is. As she gradually recovers her memories and with it the knowledge of why she did what she did she learns that she might literally have to sacrifice herself again, but can she do it? With the usual cast of characters Perry - being his usual smarmy demon self, Saul - dying of mate si ...more
