I really loved this book, and Corine in particular. She's sassy and a survivor, but she's not the stereotypical kickass hard-bodied heroine you usually find in urban fantasy. She's short, dresses in bohemian chic, and likes to eat; she could be me or one of my girlfriends, except for her ability and the tragedy of her past. To me, she seemed quite real, as did her relationship with Chance; these are people who knew each other deeply in the past, but are uncertain how to relate to one another in the present. There's chemistry there all right, but Corine is uncertain whether she wants to go down that road again.
Another thing I really enjoyed about this book is how real Corine's world felt. Aguirre is herself an ex-pat living in Mexico, which no doubt helped in portraying Corine's life in Mexico City. What really impressed me, however, was how the supernatural details were intricately woven with the details of daily life.Read more ›
After leaving her lover and manager, Chance 18 months earlier, Corine Solomon has made a life for herself in Mexico City. She opened a little pawnshop and sells goods of all description, making a decent profit. She has been comfortable and made very sure she covered her tracks when she walked out on Chance and her previous life.
However, we would have no story without a hitch right?
Chance turns up at her shop to plead for help in locating his mother Yi-Min-Chin who has gone missing and considered kidnapped. Chance presents Corine with a little pewter Buddha that his mother considered her "luck" and begs her to handle it so they can glean some information with respect to Min's whereabouts.
Corine and Chance's relationship history is extremely tumultuous and needless to say, it goes against her better judgment to become involved with him again.Read more ›

This is, by far, my least favorite series by Ann Aguirre. I don't always understand why Corine acts the way she does and I don't think her character is consistent.Published 7 months ago by IRead IWrite
Solid urban fantasy, a very good start to a series that just gets better and better. No vampires or werewolves, just lots of scary and sometimes beneficial magic. Read morePublished 12 months ago by greytfriend
Full disclaimer: I didn't finish the book. I gave up about 2/3rds of the way through despite loving Aguirre's sci-fi. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Emme Hones
There's tons of action in this book, but the plot is far from compelling, and the characters are barely sketched in. Corine, the main character, is particularly unsatisfying. Read morePublished 20 months ago by jhl
Well written, with interesting characters, action-suspense, love interest, touch of humor. I'm reading the 2nd in the series now, Hell Fire.Published on August 23, 2014 by AvidReader
