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.
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
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
In "Blue Diablo" Chance agrees to use his talents to assist Corine in discovering the reasons behind her mother's death in exchange for her help in locating his mother, Min.
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.
HELL FIRE picks up just weeks after the events that occurred in Blue Diablo as Corrine and Chance are returning to her hometown of Kilmer, Georgia to get the truth about her mother's murder thirteen years earlier. With Chance's luck, Corrine is determined to finally be able to bring the killers to justice.
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
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
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
I usually enjoy Ms. Aguirre's writing, but I kept finding myself wondering why this book was hijacked by the voice of Yasmine Galenorn -- the constant talk of the clothes Corine was wearing and the food she was (or was not) eating, the multiple devoted male suitors (one of whom was described as a "white knight" a dozen times in the first half). Add to that Corine making out with two of her sui...more

I think Jesse is fairly boring & such an obvious plot device to add some tension & Corine's inner dialog about him, her potential feelings.... It was like shampoo, lather, rinse & repeat.
The plot itself, could be interesting but BD (the 1st book) was really such a hot mess of action & emo inner dialog - Corine was not wrong when s...more
