Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Violent revenge threatens a demon-touched amateur witch in the solid third Corine Solomon adventure (after 2010's Hell Fire). Corine is ready to return to her normal life as a pawnshop owner, but when Kel Ferguson, Hand of God, arrives just in time to save her from touching an item hexed to kill her, she discovers that a drug cartel boss is out for her blood. Corine, Kel, and Corine's teen ward, Shannon, dodge enemies from Mexico City to Laredo, Tex.—with an even more dangerous side trip to Peru—while striking bargains with red witches, a rival cartel, demons, and their own consciences. Corine's inner turmoil over using dark powers to survive is compelling, as is her attraction to the strong and appealing Kel (even though he's love interest #3). Aguirre has a gift for creating strong characters who keep her readers coming back for more. (Apr.)

I've come to expect great things from Ann Aguirre. I don't just read her books, I step into the skin of her characters, breath the same air, taste the same food, feel the same rush of adrenaline and chill of fear. The Corine Solomon books in particular, have all been superb supernatural rides, and SHADY LADY is the best yet.

What a surprise Kel was in this book. When we first met him in BLUE DIABLO, he was this crazy, zealous warrior. Barely human. An enemy. A tenuous alliance was formed between him and Corine, but he was still terrifying at best, and homicidal most times. And yet, Ann changed him in a very gradual, subtle way throughout SHADY LADY. Or maybe she just changed my perception, because by the end of the book, I'd basically called the race for Corine's heart and the two other guys from the previous book weren't even close. I loved how my expectations were completely turned upside down and yet I never once felt cheated.

But even though I may have declared a winner, that doesn't mean that Corine (or Ann has). I had some issues with Corine's indecisiveness in the previous books, and she's no more resolute this time when it comes to the men in her life. In SHADY LADY, she mentally commits to each one before waffling on to the next in the space of only a few chapters. Talk about whiplash. Yes there are circumstances that prompt each decision, but I would have expected her to maybe take a little time to think things through before moving on to the next guy. But that's my only complaint in this otherwise excellent urban fantasy.

There is so much good stuff packed into this book.

Shady Lady is the third book in Ann Aguirre's Corine Solomon urban fantasy series, and I'm pleased to report that Aguirre just keeps on delivering the goods. Despite a slow and somewhat jerky start, by the mid-point of the book I was completely hooked, and the end left me drooling for more.

The beginning reminded me of how the first book in the series, Blue Diablo started out pretty slow and meandering, and while Shady Lady doesn't exactly meander, it does take a while to really pick up. Big Exciting Things happen at the beginning, when we find out that Montoya, the drug dealer Corine pissed off in the first book, is gunning for her, and Kel, the slightly creepy Hand of God, shows up saying that he's on a mission from God... er, has been assigned to protect Corine. They, along with Shannon, Corine's roommate and the gifted girl she rescued from her old hometown in Hell Fire, set off to find out how to break a hex that was meant to kill Corine.

The more I think about it, the more Shady Lady feels like two novels mashed into one. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but it does lead to a slightly disjointed feel overall. The first half involves Corine and Kel running around, dodging snipers and trekking through jungles. The second half involves Corine turning into a seriously tough lady in Texas, trying to take out Montoya and stay on the good side of Montoya's rival and her new, er, patron, Escobar. In terms of how the story flows, story one segues into story two pretty well, but it did take a while for me to really feel like the ball was rolling.

Once again, characterization is the strongest point in this series. Corine continually grows as a character, learning things about herself that scare her.

I really appreciate the author's writing style. The characters are well rounded with layers,several points of interest and complexity. The plot has texture and nuiances with hints of intrigue to come. Corine is fun she is smart, tough, vulnerable and loyal. She isn't a superhero but a person who steps up as crisis reach her and makes difficult choices. She is finding her strength as she is facing some pretty scary advesaries. Her struggles are not neat with easy solutions for every move their are consequences some are happy some devastating. I think Ann gave enough hints about Chance's origins and I am anxious to see if I am right. After three books I'm more vested and intrigued by the characters. Great read start with 1st in series and I also recommend Jax series!

I am so glad that this book came out, I read the new Charlaine Harris and Patricia Briggs and was so dissapointed that I didn't feel like reading. This was good from the very beginning, I didn't want to put it down. The only problem I had was the end, and I don't like Chance. I would really like to know why they make such dumb love choices in books? Why don't they make women strong enough to stand on their own? I do have to say that I liked Kel even if he is never going to be available, at least he had a tender side. I can't wait until the next book!

Shady Lady is a book that shows tremendous growth in the Corinne Solomon series. Ann Aguirre has this amazing ability to dream up and write extremely unique characters and place the setting of her stories in places that come alive on the pages of her book. The first two books in this series created distinct reactions in my mind - one, I loved the characters, the setting and the "talents/abilities" of the characters; two - the main character's reaction and interactions with her love interests (yes that is plural) drove me crazy and detracted from the storyline. I love how Ann Aguirre writes about an American woman living in Mexico - having been one myself years ago, I can say with confidence that Aguirre gets it right and makes me feel like I am back there doing it all over again. I love how Aguirre writes her characters. Nothing is easy, there is a cost to talent and there are consequences to choices. The people in Corinne's life are unique and quirky - -much like real people in real life are.

So Shady Lady finds Corinne back in Mexico, I was already cheering from the beginning of the story. And there are some positive things that develop in Corinne's love life that were much more tolerable and enjoyable than in the first few books. The quest/challenge is interesting and not predictable at all. So where does this leave me with the series?

I love Aguirre's Sirantha Jax series. That is one of my all time favorite series - a character driven story, amazing setting and hard choices. Aguirre never takes the easy way out as a writer and I love reading those kinds of stories. I wish that the first two in the Corinne Solomon series were automatic wins for me, but there is enough meaty stuff there that encouraged me to keep going and I am glad that I did.
