Got into Devil May Cry a year ago. Found the books and read them.
Great for filling in between the series, canon or non-canon, it's great to imagine it all intertwine with the storyline so far.

Thought you'd need a PSP for the ultimate wireless Devil May Cry experience? Not necessarily, Shin-Ya Goikeda delivers a in-depth tale of a hit-man with a rockstar attitude and a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. Whether you've played the games or not this book is great for anyone who enjoys a great action/sci-fi novel. This story is about the revalation of one man and his transition into who he really is.

Fun but not for the faint of heart, you will laugh and cry.

Story:
Tony Redgrave is just trying to enjoy his life as the best mercenary in town with his partner and friend Grue when these pesky demons keep showing up and trying to kill him. Soon a mysterious swordsman by the name of Gilver comes into town and begins working with Tony on jobs that become increasingly violent and dangerous. Not long after Tony's friends begin disappearing one by one. Until finally there is only Tony and Gilver. It soon becomes clear that Gilver is behind all of the recent trouble and the disappearances of Tony's friends. Now Tony must find his true self and face his destiny as Dante the son of Sparda.

If your interested in the Devil May Cry series, anime or scifi/action novels then you'll proably like this book. It does read like an anime cartoon so it does help to be familar with at least one of the above or the pacing may seem a little off and some of the events may seem a little off. But hey where else are you going to find a knock down drag out fight/iniation test finished by a drinking match featuring the worst beer in the city? Scenes like that make this book fun and interesting. Would recommend to anyone who likes DMC,anime, or scifi/action novels.

When I first bought this book I was a bit weary on whether or not it would live up to the story of Devil May Cry. Being a huge fan of the series of course I'd have loads of expectations not only of Dante and his story but of how this linked to the rest of the series. To my amazement this book turned out so amazing I just couldn't put the book down once. The story's twists and turns, the relationships between Dante and everyone else he knew, and the background to his relationship with not only his mother but that of his dark fathers past made this book one of the best I've ever read; even though it's based off of a video game.Personally I believe that If a Devil May Cry fan has NOT read this book yet, they're missing out so much on what this book has in store for its readers. So if you're a DMC fan and are interesting in knowing the back story of Dante as Tony Redgrave, buy this book. You won't regret it.

It's an Ok book for younger audiances because it's not that dark. The book feels a little like a mediocre fanfic, but that might be from a translation problem. There were a few areas that had a some spacing issues between the words, but it was only 2 or 3 words. It was a fairly quick, cliched and action packed book, but it was fairly enjoyable. For people who like the game, this book would be more enjoyable for them as they would be more familiar with the characters. However this book is also enjoyable for people who've never played the games at all.

Very good story that takes you deeper into the DMC universe. If you're fan of the series this is a must have. If you like to read some dark-fiction style novels it is also a good reading.

It's a novel with a few pages of artwork to go along with the scenes of the book. Devil May Cry has always been and always will be more of a thing you need to see to really enjoy. The Dante we all know and love is quirky and whitty and must be seen to really get the full effect. But the novel does it enough justice I think. These books are more for collector value than anything for me. Glad I bought it!
