Hell Fire by Ann Aguirre, #2 in Corrine Solomon series
I really like Ann Aguirre’s writing style. I enjoy the worlds she creates and the characters that inhabit those worlds. I really do like a lot about this book, this series but for some reason this book and this series does not click with me. I cannot figure out why. Maybe a list will help.
What I love about this book (and this series):
1. The setting. In Hell Fire the setting is a small remote town in the middle of a forest, literall ...more
I am so pissed!
This book was solid 4 stars until the last 2 goddamn pages. I just... I just want to shake Corine, slap some sense into her! Because that was bullshit.
I am throwing in the towel. I can't follow a story where the heroine is a selfish asshole.
Ugh! Ugh! I wish I could delete this series from my brain.
this story picks up pretty much where we left off in book one. corine is looking for what/who killed her mother and trying to use Chance's luck to help her find it.
woven throughout the plot is the ongoing arc of corine's personal life and the somewhat triangle between herself, Chance, and Jessie. this is here you start to loose me. being with chance is risky. it could be deadly. that is a ...more
Yet again, I am having trouble with the rating for this one. I love Aguirre's writing, and I thought that the storyline in this one was MUCH better than the storyline in the last one. A creepy haunted town, mysterious deaths, curses etc.. All cool.
And yet... the relationship aspect really bothers me. As I stated in my ...more

So as "Hell Fire" begins, Corine and Chance are off to Kilmer, GA where they are confronted with a mysterious evil that seems to encompass the entire town.

Sorry Ms Aguirre, you lost me.
It's no secret that science fiction and fantasy often strives to be socially relevant, to a make a point about our future, our society or just the human penchant for quests and underdogs. Often slipping through the cracks of those books deemed of literary merit, urban fantasy at its worst is considered a pornographic bestiary with a bitchy female lead. At its best though urban fantasy is becoming a microcosm, where the rest of the genre is a wide angled view, focusing on how p ...more

The paranormal world in this series is populated with ghosts, demons, witches, and 'The Gifted' (individuals with varying abilities; everyth ...more
Hell Fire was one of those books I didnt really want to read when home alone at night, but I did anyway, as the only other option was putting it down and waiting to finish it later. It was urban fantasy, with horrific overtones, and the horror was done perfectly. It made my flesh crawl with goosebumps and every little noise made me twitch.
Ever wandered through one of those small towns that appeared to have been overlooked by the passing ...more
I did have a problem with Chance wanting her back so badly despite the fact that his luck may be the death of her. He doesn't want to give up the luck, even though he says he will, and he doesn't want to give her up. Selfish? Yeah. There has to be more to this than what we are seeing because how can he feel about her what he says and then want ...more
Hell Fire is an excellently written book. However, I didn't enjoy it as ...more
In Hell Fire, Corine explores her past in Kilmer, GA and finds out what really happened to her mother. I feel like I learned a lot about her as a character through seeing where she comes from.
The book also furthers her relationships with both Jesse and Chanc ...more
Corine goes home to try to figure out who killed her mom and she finds out the whole town is screwy. I was a lot sick of her Chance/Jesse triangle, which wasn't really a triangle. She loves Chance but being with him could get her killed. And she's not sure of what she feels for Jesse. I felt so sorry for Chance by the end of the book, although I did understand the reason why s ...more
There are two objectives in this story. Corine must decide how she feels about Chance---the ex-boyfriend who wants her back in his life---and bring those responsible for her mother's death to justice. And, oh man, does Aguirre take us for a ride!
The primary storyline is discovering the secret of what is terrorizing the forest and why so many are d ...more

Its been a long time coming but I finally decided to buckle down and finally read this book after its been sitting on my Kindle for almost a year now. After how much I enjoyed the first book in this series I can’t believe it took me this long to finally get around to this one but once I did I couldn’t imagine what I had been missing! A great second novel, Hell Fire delivered everything I expected from a good novel and left me wan ...more
-The plot. Thankfully the complaints I had about BLUE DIABLO did not apply in HELL FIRE. The sense of mindless wandering did not overwhelm the book's pages and I was genera ...more
