  • 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 w [...]


  • Devil's Punch picks up right where Shady Lady left off. Corine and Chance are in Mexico, Corine's trying to rebuild and work on her magical skills. Things are going great until Corine gets a note saying that Shannon has been kidnapped. Because of events in the last book, Corine knows that demons are involved. I like this book but I don't think it was nearly as good as Shady Lady. I really missed Kel. Chance was awesome and has definitely changed and is serious about being with Corinebut I got re [...]


  • Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyDEVIL’S PUNCH is the game changer book for the Corine Solomon series. Normally, I love it when authors take big risks to shake up their series, but I think in this case it might have been too much. Without spoiling anything, two huge events transpire; one that drastically alters the tone of this book, and another that will drastically affect the tone of the next book. Praise is due once again for the writing which is as immersive as always. We get to [...]


  • I’m disappointed.I was mad at Corine half of the book. Corine’s love life is fickle: she loves Chance, but also Kell and she has desired/desires Jesse, Chance and Kell. We are lucky that Jesse is now with Shannon, otherwise we would have to put up with more of her whining. Corine’s love life is fickle. I annoyed me to no end. I like romances, but I expect some direction in them: this is the fourth book and Corine could be with just anyone of the aforementioned (except Jesse out of loyalty [...]


  • I am sad to say I am very disappointed with this book.This series used to be one of my most favourite UF series. But I am not okay with Shannon and Jesse. She is barely out of high school and he is so much older and a cop to boot. Not only that, but his romantic attachment with Corine from before just added to my distaste. I don't care how the author spins this: for example, the amnesia broke the barriers to Shannon and Jesse's love, or whatever other reasoning anyone can come up with. But there [...]


  • Devil's Punch was filled with so much action, I hardly knew how to continue! Corine went through so many things that made my heart not only break, but completely shatter for her.


  • SpoilersSet a few months after the events of Shady Lady, Corine returns to Mexico to try and rebuild her business and home. Corine must also deal with her ex-boyfriend, Chance who has followed her to Mexico in the hopes of winning her back. Without her best friend Shannon to help her, Corine is struggling to cope with her new future. Shannon along with Corine’s almost boyfriend, Jesse, no longer remember Corine due to one of her memory spells going awry. When Shannon goes missing, Corine finds [...]


  • I don't know what it is lately but I've been disappointed with Ann Aguirre's books lately. And it's kind of complicated in that I'm not disappointed in the writing quality or Ann Aguirre's ability to keep me glued to the pages. It's more of a disappointment in the directions her series are taking. I still love the author's writing and I want to find out what happens in both this series and her Sirantha Jax series, but I wish the past few books in the series turned out differently.


  • Fourth in the Corine Solomon urban fantasy series revolving around a touch psychic living in Mexico.My TakeI 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 updrama queen.It's certainly an interesting journey into Hell. Then there ar [...]


  • Originally posted at WickedLilPixie ReviewsCorine is back in this fourth book of the Corine Solomon series, by Ann Aguirre! I have waited a year for this installment and it was totally the wait.Since the events in the last book, Shady Lady, we know that her friend Shannon no longer remembers her. Corine has basically lost a best friend and a would-be boyfriend by using a "simple" magic trick that went really wrong. Oops! When Shannon goes missing, and it's revealed she is being held in Sheol, it [...]


  • Aguirre takes a lot of narrative risks in this book, and it didn't entirely work for me. After her "forget" spell makes her boyfriend and best friend forget her somewhat permanently (oops), Corine gets back with her ex, Chance, and starts to rebuild in Mexico. But as always, her actions in the last book have consequences in this one, and she must travel to Sheol (aka Hell) to rescue Shannon, said best friend, who has been kidnapped in retribution for Corine's actions. This is where it gets a lit [...]


  • It's taken me a while to make up my mind about this seriese first two books I liked, the third was all right, and this one I liked less. I dislike the romantic arrangements that seem contrived (first we have two guys "fighting" it out for the heroine's affectinos, then we have a half-angel, then we have the first of the two guys, then immediately upon his heels, the original (ex) boyfriend and second of the two guys triumphing, then he gets killed)d in many respects the circumstances seem artifi [...]


  • The best Corine Solomon yet. Just when you think Ann Aguirre has done it all, she tops herself. And then sucker punches you.A must read.


  • Guess I can't really do this review without spoilers, so I'll state from the start, this spoils the end of the book.Is it fucked up that I actually found it more rewarding to see Corine really give Chance a real opportunity, even knowing how the story ended?I gave Black Howl a scathing review for presenting a character death in a way where I thought it might be undone, then realized it wouldn't, but here . I find myself believing Chance. "Even death will not keep me from you." After all, his dad [...]


  • Chance has moved to Mexico to be with Corine and although their relationship is progressing slowly there time alone together is all cut short when Corine finds out her best friend has been kidnapped by Demons. The pair quickly find out that the kidnapping is to get Corine to jump into the demon realm and take her place on the throne. I was really sad that the ending of book 3 SHADY LADY left some of Corine's closest friends without any memories of her. Although they finally get their memories ba [...]


  • I enjoyed this one immensely, although it looks like some of what I liked so much was the exact things that made others disliked the book - to each their own, I guess.For me, this book promised everything I've come to expect from Ann Aguirre's writing: gritty situations, epic worldbuilding, complex characters, strong-if-flawed relationships and no easy answers. Ever.I particularly loved the way Ms Aguirre handled the whole Corine-and-Ninlil-headspace-sharing thing. I loved how she showed who was [...]


  • I love Ann Aguirre’s writing. I love how she takes me deep into the story. I am fully invested in what happens to Corine and her friends and that happened after a few chapters in book 1 when usually it takes me a whole book to feel close to a main character in a series. Besides creating amazing characters, I usually can picture the setting and surroundings to the point where I feel like I’m in the middle of Mexico or Kilmer, GA.With all that being said, there was something that I didn’t gr [...]


  • Almost halfway through the book, I realized that I was tired of the plot. Although I'd enjoyed previous entries in this series, the "possessed by an evil queen" storyline began to drag and I started to associate this with a Jim Butcher/Harry Dresden/Spiderman level of degredation heroism. The main character, Corinne Solomon, is going to just going to keep slogging until she can't and the reader might as well settle in to duck the slings and arrows of an unappreciative or antagonistic world as sh [...]


  • Let's see where shall I begin without giving away anything?It bores me for the most of the book due to the constant narration of corine and herself and her past, her ex and have I mention, herself?And then it gets interesting to know more about herself, her not ex and her missing father.Something happened, shit hit the fan and everything went to hell.I don't do well with loss of loved ones.Used Kleenex on 3 occasions and the book got my attention back with less of Corine talking to herself.The e [...]


  • I really enjoyed the first three books in this series. I almost felt like this book was written by a different author. I didn't feel the connection to the characters that I had in the past books and didn't care for the direction that Ann has taken the series.


  • The Corine Solomon series takes you to places we can only imagine. Her trials and tribulations would kill even a superior being, and yet she prevails against overwhelming odds. I'm looking forward to the next book about her life and times.


  • A very generous three stars. So many things went wrong that I don't know where to begin. Not sure that I want to review this one.


  • Synopsis:It is the fourth part of a series – you can read it as a stand-alone (there is plenty of info from previous books mentioned in the plot) but still you’ll be missing many details so I don't recommend starting with this one.Chance has moved to Mexico to be with Corine Solomon, his ex-girlfriend. Although their relationship is progressing slowly toward the right direction they simply lack enough time to make it work. Soon after they settled down and bought some furniture Corine gets a [...]


  • Love it. Very action packed with pure romance. Sacrifices aplenty mixed with loyalty, reverence, friendship, kinship, power, revenge and most importantly, love .




  • Where to begin?I love the Corine Soloman serieseven the little stumble down with the 2nd book didn't bother me. For some reason though, I love and hate Devil's Punch. It's been a few days since I finished the book and my thoughts and emotions are still conflicted over what I read. I understand it for the progression of the series, I loved it for the character building, but I hated it for how the entire story played out. I am saying this is a 4 star read because I did truly enjoy reading this boo [...]


  • Devil’s Punch is the fourth book in the Corine Solomon series by Ann Aguirre.Devil’s Punch starts couple of months after the events in Shady Lady (third book). Corine is back in Mexico, she is rebuilding her pawnshop and trying to live with the consequences of her actions in Shady Lady. Chance has left everything behind and has followed Corine to Mexico; he is doing his best to win her back.

  • More 3 1/2 stars for me.Corine is helping Chance move into his new apartment, in Mexico not far from her, and both have agreed to a fresh start. Corine is rebuilding her pawnshop and has started training in spells and charms with Tia, someone she has become close to in Mexico. All seems to be going well; dating Chance - slowly, learning spells, and rebuilding her shop, with the exception of a missing piece that she created with a over powerful spell, and is hoping will wear off. Corine then rece [...]


  • The premise: ganked from BN: As a handler, Corine Solomon can touch any object and learn its history. Her power is a gift, but one that’s thrown her life off track. The magical inheritance she received from her mother is dangerously powerful, and Corine has managed to mark herself as a black witch by dealing with demons to solve her problems.Back home, Corine is trying to rebuild her pawnshop and her life with her ex Chance, despite the target on her back.
