      I really like this cover, even if it does have the famous butt pose ;) She looks so kick-ass, and she has to be, cos she is a stunt woman. She knows how to fight, she knows how to fall down buildings. Aye she is cool.There are supes everywhere, but the normal people do not know about them. Lee does know as her foster dad is one. But there are things not even she knows, but will find out ;)I liked her. She was a non nonsense kind of person. Even even though she is not a supe, she still protects t [...]

      I wanted to like this one, the blurb sounded good. However 100 pages in and not much has happened and I'm really bored. Bored enough that I don't really care if we find out if things pick up as the blurb states. In the end this one isn't for me.

    3. Mary Jarwood says:

      I received this book free from Titan books for an honest review. Lee is a stuntwoman and a very good one at that. Having trained most of her life to do the dangerous falls and fight scenes, her nerves are shaken after she falls from high story building and barely lives to tell the tale. Six months later and as she begins to start working again she is hired to work on a film which slowly escalates to her becoming the main lead as the first actress is killed. I really enjoyed this novel. While it [...]

      2.5-3⭐Very mild spoileryness ahead, nothing major. A solid 3.5 star rating that went down a bit towards the end as more insufferable male characters continued to be insufferable And then a new insufferable jerk was introduced as possible new love interest / bad guy at the very end. No. Just no. There was a lot of great action here, perhaps oddly paced but nonetheless. I particularly loved the long and bloody climactic scene where Lee kicks some demon butt.There were also a lot of good characte [...]

      When the email from Titan Books arrived about this book I was immediately excited. Urban fantasy is what I'm all about and the prospect of discovering supernatural Hollywood with protagonist stunt woman Lee was an opportunity I simply couldn't pass up!The first thing I noticed about the cover was that it came with a shining endorsement from Charlaine Harris (of True Blood fame!). If I hadn't been tempted in by the synopsis, a sure fire way to get me interested in a book is an endorsement from on [...]

    6. Meghan Zombieluv says:

      Wow wow wow!This is what I've been looking for in a new Urban Fantasy series! Something completely different and so amazing! This definitely just jumped to the top of my favorite series list! I can't wait until the next book!

    7. Breane Ross says:

      Another great Dana Fredsti book! Love this character and really, REALLY, hope there is another book. Definitely recommend this book. :)

      "A Hollywood agent who's actually a demon?" Kyra shook her head. "What are the odds of that?""Fifty-fifty," Eden and I said at the same time.The three of us cracked up.Making it in Hollywood was an urban fantasy before there was urban fantasy. The tale of a young woman overcoming the challenges and seductions on her path to success is so ingrained in popular culture that slipping in non-metaphorical shifters and more than movie magic seems oddly natural. What makes this book stand out is that Le [...]

      A solid 3.5 starrerThe 1st book in an urban fantasy thats fairly fun, harmless and not particularly complex gets that additional half star on account on the lead character, her actual profession and the setting of the book. Lee Striga, our lead, is a stunt actress who post a stunt gone wrong - is now recuperating and fighting her own personal demons. Attempting to strike out on her own as a stuntwoman, she gets pulled into the shooting of a low budget indie movie only to get pulled in when the b [...]

      I need more. Right now. Where is the next book????? I really, really enjoyed this story. I already knew that Dana could write (I am a HUGE fan of her Plague novels!) and this book lived up to my expectations! Mythology, monsters, kick-ass females, weres, demons, and stunts! I loved the ties back to original myths -- Lilith and her human & demon children (spawn). The characters were wonderful and the story left me wanting more, more, more. I loved the descriptions of working on a movie set an [...]

    11. Mason Jones says:

      This is a promising first book in a new series that's reminiscent in some ways of Richard Kadrey's Sandman Slim novels -- supernatural/occult intruding on the present-day, both even set in LA. But there's not really a resemblance. It's more to say that if you like one you're likely to enjoy the other. Smart-ass characters, in-jokes, generally enjoyable stuff as our heroine, a stuntwoman, has to work back after an accident, falls in with a crowd comprised of both the right and the wrong, and weat [...]

    12. Loren says:

      Lee Striga is a Hollywood stuntwoman who gets injured during a movie shoot and has to step back to reassess her life. It takes her a bit to figure out how to get back up on the horse, but in the end, Lee is a force worth reckoning with. She's fierce, not afraid to throw herself in harm's way, and quick to protect everyone without worrying about herself. I adore her.The inside view of low-budget horror films is fascinating, but what really made the book for me was Dana's deft creation of characte [...]

    13. Jay Sprenkle says:

      A good enjoyable fantasy with a who-dun-it mystery. The author keeps you guessing until the end, writes interesting characters, and doesn't give away much. You'll have to read the sequels to find out more. A fast read so you won't feel bogged down. There's not much sex or romance but does contain some gore. None of it is graphic.The setting is a bit unusual. The supernatural characters are a big but hidden part of the Hollywood scene. The lead character is a human that holds her own working for [...]

    14. iamkatebishop says:

      It is well written, the characters are all varied and mostly fleshed out, and the book sucks you right into its world. The problem I had was that this felt more like the first half of a longer novel than a stand alone book. I know more books are coming, and I will read them because I enjoyed this book, but the plot doesn't thicken (for lack of a better term) until there are only about 80 pages left.I'm excited about where this series is going, but I wish the first installment would have given u [...]

    15. Elisa says:

      That was so entertaining! There are little things I could quibble about, but why? Anyway, fun characters, a "behind the scenes" look at Hollywood and the crazy paranormals that work in the business (makes as much sense as anything). Someone is killing folks, the bad guy, you figure out pretty quickly, but why, and where and who ultimately got a little confusing, but was engaging and I read quickly to figure it all out. Looking forward to more in this world, she left it pretty wide open for some [...]

    16. Joe Yellin says:

      I was thoroughly entertained by this book. The lead character Lee Striga was fun to get to know and her being a stunt woman for movies helped keep me turning pages as she talked about stunts and whatever else goes on behind the camera. If I didn't like the book so much, I would have complained about how many pages it took to get to the actual main storyline teased in the blurb on the back of the book, but, again, the book was so entertaining to read. It even had a fresher perspective on the supe [...]

    17. Jaye says:

      I liked it but didn't think it was anything special. Don't get me wrong, it had potential. However, the plot was too aimless and long-winded for my taste. The first 2/3 of the book felt more like a prequel, than an actual part of the the main storyline.Still, plenty to like, and the writing was pleasing. I don't think I'll seek out the next book, but if it crosses my path, I'll give it a looksie.

    18. David Adkins says:

      The Spawn of Lilith was a great read. Dana does an excellent job of weaving in her own knowledge of filming into the story. It's one minor flaw is that it takes a while for the action to really ramp up, but the time is well spent fleshing out the characters. I loved this book and can't wait to read the next one! 5 beers out of a 6 pack.

    19. Aki says:

      I can honestly say that I seriously liked this book. I enjoyed that Lee took no shit and that she was a strong heroine. I also enjoyed the mythology behind the creatures that Lee encountered.

    20. Wendy Bocock says:

      Can't remember ever reading a book where a stuntwoman was the main character - felt very fresh and unique. Loved the "behind the scenes" depiction of movie-making, too. Great characters, great story, great start to a series! Looking forward to the next one!

    21. Nancy Cumming says:

      Interesting beginning and mid point. The end was hectic and rushed. The story didn't come together well. A bit disappointing.

    22. Paul Anderson says:

      Great plot, good writing.

    23. Theresa Derwin says:

      Well, that was f**king superb Review to follow

    24. Megan Jaskowiak says:

      Rounded up from 3.5, her slow in the beginning, but the series has great potential.

    25. Jeannie Lopez says:

      OMG loved this fast action fun book. One of the best I have read in a while

    26. Kristen Westfall says:

      This was another one of those half really fresh and great/half didn't work for me books. I certainly plan to read the rest of the series though.

    27. Leah says:

      I’ve never read one of Dana Fredsti’s books but The Spawn of Lilith sounded like it would be right up my street. Supernatural beings in Hollywood? A kickass stuntwoman? YES, PLEASE. It’s also the first in Dana’s new series, I think?? Well, it must be, considering the ending so there will be at least a sequel at some point that I will be picking up for sure. I didn’t love this book as much as I wanted to, but it was a damn entertaining read.Probably my only issue with The Spawn of Lilit [...]

    28. Jennifer Bradley says:

      Lee is part of a elite stuntman group. She gets a part as a stunt and extra double. In a up-and-coming film called Pale Dreamer. Everything goes to plan apart from a few tantrums from the lead role. There's a few supernatural twists and turns in this book. That keep the reader entertained throughout. I can't wait to see what's next in this very promising new series.
