Customer Reviews

Aguirre builds some really nice tension, but then just lets it go.
Kathy Davie
I understand a little bit because of the overall situation but come on, he is in love with CORINE and he didn't see anything seriously wrong with his behavior?
Urban Fantasy Investigations
I don't need that to make me want to buy the next book... Definitely worth the read, but make sure you read the earlier books first.

How far would you go to save your best friend? If you're anything like Corine Solomon, you would take a one-way ticket to hell without a second thought.

This is my tenth book by Ann Aguirre, and she has yet to write a single sentence that I won't like. From her restrained writing style to her astonishing worlds, everything she does demonstrates calmness, precision and experience not many authors have.

My relationship with Corine Solomon got off to a rocky start. Just like Sirantha Jax, she was insufferable at first, mildly infuriating later and a role model by the end. Not that we got to see much of Corine this time around, as she was sharing her body with a vicious demon queen. She was mostly in the background, a helpless spectator in her own life, and even when she found the strength to push the queen down, she was rarely the Corine I know and love. She and the queen started out as complete opposites, one gentle and mellow, the other evil incarnate, but the lines started blurring pretty soon and suddenly I had no idea where one ends and the other begins. Just like Chance, I was unsure about her actions, constantly wondering which part was Corine, and which the demon queen. If that isn't proof enough of superior writing skills, I don't know what is.

I adore that Aguirre toys with the genre, stepping in and out as she sees fit and abandoning it altogether when the need arises. Hell Fire, book two in the series, was really a small-town horror story, compelling, utterly creepy and so much better than the small town horror story that won 2011 GoodReads choice award. That's when it became clear that the author refuses to be confined by the genre and it was around that time that I started worshiping the ground she walks on... with much dignity, of course.

The Corine Solomon series has been an auto buy because the first few in the series were great. I truly liked all the characters and the ideas behind the magic. It was very easy to fall into the world. I really enjoyed each book until this one. I had to force myself to keep going in the hopes it would pick up the pace. I was bored from the first chapter until we finally descended into the demon realm. And although it was full of interesting things about demons the story was just flat. And having the main characters start changing to fit the environs was just....strange. I just wasn't feeling it. In fact, the ending was just another chapter. I didn't really care that a main character died. And that is pretty sad. I intend to try the next one and hope it is more exciting.

Devil's Punch
Reviewed by Ann & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

I would love to have Corine Solomon as a friend. When she learns that her best friend, Shannon has been taken by the demons she has provoked, Corine makes no hesitation as she sets her plans in motion to get her back. She is loyal and kind, and although her life right now is still murky, she knows that she has people in her life that are worth fighting for.

DEVIL'S PUNCH begins in Mexico, where Corine and Chase are trying to work their relationship out. Chase has been giving Corine her space, but I have to say that I loved how he was able to convey his feelings without smothering her. Those tender kisses and longing glances really solidified the fact that he really does care about her and what happens between them. I loved the glimpses into his past and really wished there was more of that because I enjoyed more of his character that way.

Though the book starts off in Mexico, it doesn't really stay that way. Early on, Corine's journey to find her best friend takes them out of Mexico and into Sheol, or Hell. I found that the pacing was good. There wasn't a moment that dragged for too long. I thought that that was noteworthy because in most of Ann's books, she is able to move the story on smoothly while punching you in the teeth. She's that good of a writer.

Another nice thing about this book is the action. Aguirre incorporates interesting mythology while making it her own. I noticed that Aguirre's writing style isn't flashy and yet it still manages to hold my attention. But don't get me wrong, the action is in no way subdued. There are demons, so there is no way that this book could be passed up!

Interesting things occur in this book that makes me eager to read the next book in the series, AGAVE KISS. I can't help but wonder what Aguirre has in store for her readers next!

Fourth in the Corine Solomon urban fantasy series revolving around a touch psychic living in Mexico.

My Take
I was enjoying the promise of Corine and Chance together again, building a life. Then Aguirre comes along with this kidnapping. Okay. Obviously, a new story needs a new bit of drama. And it's good for a while, but then Corine is making all these stupid decisions, just rushing on in without thought.

One word sums it up...drama queen.

It's certainly an interesting journey into Hell. Then there are the distinctions the demons themselves make between each other.

Oh brother...the whining begins. Up to this point, Corine has been a pretty courageous and intelligent person. She knows it's the Chasm of Despair...hullo. So she just spills everything. And I mean...everything. Idiot. Corine's interactions with Sybella and her escape are just too easy. There's a shallowness in this story that is irritating. Almost like taking a ride through Disneyland. This should be such an important chapter in Corine's life and...phfft.

Xibalba is the, well, I guess capital city of Sheol, and it certainly sounds pretty. It has its range of neighborhoods with their particular quirks and dangers. Just as the different classes of demons do. Whoa, the information about the archangels and the nephilim is rather disturbing.

Wow, Chance really does want to get back with Corine. Compared to their first time around, he's practically spilling all of his back history. Including all about his old girlfriend Lily and how she met her demise. It's just too not-Chance. I feel as though Aguirre skipped a major part of Chance's "life change".
