Description from GoodReads:

   Bad boy, meet bad girl.

   Dante has a shiny new cuff wrapped around his ankle, and he doesn’t like that mess one bit. His new accessory comes straight from Big Guy himself and marks the former demon as a liberator. Despite his gritty past and bad boy ways, Dante Walker has been granted a second chance.

  When Dante is given his first mission as a liberator to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen, he knows he’s got this. But Aspen reminds him of the rebellious life he used to live and is making it difficult to resist sinful temptations. Though Dante is committed to living clean for his girlfriend Charlie, this dude’s been a playboy for far too long…and old demons die hard. 

With Charlie becoming the girl she was never able to be pre-makeover and Aspen showing him how delicious it feels to embrace his inner beast, Dante will have to go somewhere he never thought he’d return to in order to accomplish the impossible: save the girl he’s been assigned to, and keep the girl he loves.


Contains Spoilers:

   First of all I have to say I really enjoyed this work of art. ( A.K.A the book) Dante's bad ass comments can make any boring moment AMAZING, and I love Victoria for that. When someone would say "His must be very nervous." Victoria would spice it up and say "His tampon must be killing him." Which would make us laugh every time, and remind us why Dante Walker is a must read series. But there are many more reasons to read The Liberator. The characters are one of them.        
   In The Collector we fell in love with Dante and Charlie, Max and Red (Varley). In The Liberator we fell in love with Aspen and Blue, (Yes Blue has returned from the dead! Hallelujah! Now a Liberator if you can believe it.) and maybe even Kraven and Annabelle. I swear I saw a little something there. But with Charlie and Dante's relationship growing, so did the problems they faced. Learning about the Sirens, the scrolls, Gram dying and the war. Swearing to return Charlie's soul, Dante travelled to Hell with a companion. But not Charlie, with Aspen. I felt bad when Charlie had a complete freak out. But I think Dante did the right thing. I was totally shocked to hear Aspen was going to stay in hell for Charlie's soul. I was even more shocked to find out that Charlie AND Aspen were gonna end the war. A Savour and a Soldier. In the end it makes sense though, both girls can read the scrolls and both have some sort of power. Charlie with making people feel giving, Aspen with her unbelievable fighting skills. With Victorias wicked sense of humour and Dante's bad ass attitude together they created a world full of awesome sauce.
   The Liberator is a sure keeper and will have you hiding in your closet with the feels until the third and last Dante Walker book is out on the selves. The Warrior, the last and final book in the Dante Walker Trilogy is out on shelves May 6th, 2014.
