  • After reading this for the second time, I had to resist the urge to write Ann Aguirre a lengthy fan letter with a bunch of exclamation points (view spoiler)[and possibly even a heart or two (hide spoiler)]. I never get tired of her worlds or her characters, nor can I stop admiring the ease with which she pulls me into one of her stories. Corine Solomon is a handler. She has the gift (or rather the curse) of psychometry: she can see things by touching a charged object. Unfortunately, no matter ho [...]

  • I would have enjoyed the plot and the supernatural world more if the heroine hadn't been so annoyingly indecisive. "I love Chance, I don't love Chance, but wait, I do love him uh lol nope, I don't!!"She was exhausting. And the way she was so self-centered, like every fucking guy had a thing for her!!! Nah. I won't be reading more of this series1.5 star

  • This was a very interesting and unique foray into the world of magic noir, or noir occult detective fantasy fiction. Corine Solomon is a fairly conflicted, and troubled character. Her mother was a practicing witch who was essentially burned to death by the suspicious and intolerant townspeople in Kilmer, Georgia. Before she died, her mom endowed her with her power, in the form of the ability to read objects. However, it comes at signficant cost to Corine. She bears the scars of the readings on h [...]

  • Ok, this may be a hard review to read because I find it hard to put into words the things that didn't sit right with me and this book. First off, it's my favorite genre and it's a series, so I had high hopes. But then it quickly became one of those books that I had to force myself to finish and I really hate that, I mean, I started doing housework instead of reading and that's just wrong! This book had too much going on and nothing at the same time. (vague much Nicole?) The concept of Corine and [...]

  • When this book started off, I thought I was going to end up liking it much more than I did. It had a more adult, Urban Fantasy tone reminiscent of Sign of the Zodiac series for me. It was a little noir-ish & the dialog was a bit hard boiled but not OTT. I really thought I was going to appreciate the main character Corine, as a smart yet, conflicted for good reasons heroine. She initially seemed to know her mind well enough & could handle herself.The premise also seemed interesting & [...]

  • "Christ. What do you want from me?""Only what I always wanted. Everything."Unresolved love triangle! How could I not read the next story? Especially when Chance and Saldana both are in the next book =)This was a great start to the series. Not perfect, but it was a quick, fun read that I would recommend to anyone who loves urban fantasy. I really enjoyed the unique world of magic that Aguirre has created and the lively characters that reside there - witches, wizards, warlocks, demons, zombies and [...]

  • I've been looking forward to reading this for a long time. Disappointed does not even begin to describe how I feel. Usually, I can read any UF and enjoy it, but Blue Diablo was not enjoyable at all. I see that many do not agree, but I would like to present some of the reasons I did not enjoy this book so that prospective readers have both the positive and negative viewpoints. First, the novel is largely bickering between the main character and her ex. I understand that they are exploring why the [...]

  • Really a 3.5. Solid urban fantasy. No vampires or werewolves, just lots of scary and sometimes beneficial magic. Oh, and a few zombies. 2 hot guys, one imperfect gal in over her head but doing her best, and some (too convenient but fun) friends help save the day. And a little Chihauhau named Butch who, as much as I love dogs, was just too lazy a writer's tool with his helpful abilities.I liked that Corine is far from perfect. Like how she says or does little things as digs against her ex, or thi [...]

  • I want to write a better review of this book as I really liked it, but with school starting back up tomorrow I'm swamped. The basics is it's about a woman named Corine who has psychometry, the ability to touch an object and sense it's past and in Corine's case, sometimes it's future as well. She's been running around most of her life, but most recently she's been running away from her ex-boyfriend Chance. Chance is a mysterious man who somehow has incredible luck. They used to work together as a [...]

  • Okay, I have to admit: I picked this book up for one reason and one reason only. The protagonist's ex was a man named Chance with strange luck. (This will only make sense to any fans of the mid-90s TV series Strange Luck. *g*)That said, I really enjoyed it. Corine is an engaging heroine (much frumpier than the girl on the cover, which amused me) with believable fears and issues (considering the world she lives in). I liked that her gift didn't come without a price, and found the reason for that [...]

  • Hmmm, I loved Ann Aguirre's Sirantha Jax series so I came to this book thinking I'd love it too. My expectations were too high. The book is good but not as good. I'm planning on reading the rest of the series, but mostly because I want to see what happens between Corine and Chance. Corine ran away from a relationship with Chance when it felt like he didn't care how much she was hurt in using her gift and never really opened up to her during their time together. In fact, when he finds her and she [...]

  • 2.75 stars. This is hard for me to review. I like the world aguirre created. The characters were interesting. Her writing about living in Mexico and then living on the border was realistic. I enjoyed the mixture in of Mexican culture. But I wasn't engaged in the story and I was bored during the last quarter of the book. I ultimately skimmed the last 40 pages. The dynamic between Corine and Chance was intriguing at first but Corine was so darned immature about relationships and I thought she was [...]

  • Blue Diablo is the first book in this new series about Corine Solomon who has the gift as a handler, where she touches something someone owns and will have visions about that person. Corine is an everyday average person, just like you and me. She is trying to stay under the radar because her ability is both a blessing and a curse.Ann has this wonderful talent at writing characters you can sympathize with. Corine is one of them as a woman who is on the run from her past. She wishes to build a lif [...]

  • Review courtesy of AllThingsUrbanFantasyBLUE DIABLO is the first book in Ann Aguirre’s Corine Solomon series. The first half of this book is absolutely amazing. I loved Corine, with her vulnerable yet tough bravado. I loved the history between Corine and her ex Chance, who was not at all your typical alpha hero (though still every inch an alpha). But most of all I loved Ann Aguirre’s writing. It was earthy and smart, full of texture. Every one of my senses was engaged. If you’ve ever been [...]

  • I remember this one as being so different from what I had been reading, and was pretty easy to get into.There is a lot of angst in this one - unresolved romantic tension, a painful psychic power, kidnapped loved ones, and so on.As I recall, the mystery wasn't that great - the MC isn't an investigator, and there were things left unresolved.Relationship-wise, a lot was left unresolved as well. I actually liked that in this book, because I didn't feel that the characters were all that healthy for e [...]

  • Maybe a 3.5.I never really got into it. I don't know why. I felt like I was waiting for something to happen for most of the book.Firstly, the relationship stuff.It felt off to me. We got a lot of reminiscing / ranting, from Corine's POV, about what a cold bastard Chance used to be, and how she poured her heart and soul into their relationship the first time around. But the Chance that we, the readers, meet is TOTALLY different. For the first 95% of the book, he's Mr. Sensitive: all puppy-dog eye [...]

  • janicuvejournal/67296mlBlue Diablo is the first book in a new urban fantasy series by Ann Aguirre, who also writes the lovely science fiction romance series starring Sirantha Jax.The Premise: This series centers around Corine Solomon, who is a Handler - someone who can touch an object and recall its past. This means she's really sought after for her skills, but they have a high price for Corine, physically and in other ways. At the start of Blue Diablo Corine is in Mexico, living as an expatriat [...]

  • Please note: this review is based on an ARC I received; the book itself is due out April 7.If you haven't read anything by Ann Aguirre yet, what are you waiting for? Blue Diablo is a refreshingly new entry in the urban fantasy genre, featuring a sassy protagonist who is haunted by her past. Corine Solomon is a handler, who can read the history of an object by touch alone. Her ability was given to her by her mother as she died in a fire; consequently, every time Corine uses the ability she experi [...]

  • This was a really strange book for me. I had bought it on the premise that the author Patricia Briggs had recommended the author and in ways I see similarities between Corine and Mercy from Briggs books.The premise for this book is that Corine is asked by her ex-lover and manager to help find his mother who is missing. She agrees out of love for his mother, Min, as she lost her mother in a fire when she was 12 years old. Corine has been hiding out in Mexico for the last few years, since the last [...]

  • Alright I don't know what to say about this book, and I don't know really how to rate it. I enjoyed parts of it, and others were just grating on my nerves.I thought that Corrine was an interesting character, with a very cool ability. It was something that isn't portrayed much in other books, and Chance's character also was really unique. I was excited to read this one because it's different from the vamp, were etc that currently dominate the pnr/uf market. I liked the relationship between Corrin [...]

  • I've enjoyed Ann Aguirre's Sirantha Jax series and her Ava Grey Skin series for differring reasons. So I went into this wanting to love Blue Diablo, but it's not quite there for me. I didn't really feel the attraction between the main characters. It's all on paper, but not making the connection for me. I did like the concept. Corine's powers and how she received them are interesting as well as other's paranormal abilities mentioned. The first 2/3 just felt slow. The introduction of a character i [...]

  • I'd give it 2.5. It's a decent enough read, but the angst between the two main characters is petty and somewhat contrived in places. Overall it's a decent enough read to give the series a try if you like Urban Fantasy.

  • If you're looking for an urban fantasy with a sympathetic heroine, a hot hero, cool abilities, some magic, and a demon or two, then this is the book for you. Not a vampire or werewolf in sight.Great premise, great writing. Damn, the sequel can't get here fast enough.

  • Basic plot-Chance comes to his ex-gifrlfriend Corine to ask if she will use her talent as a handler to help him find out what happened to his missing mom. She agrees in return for him using his talent of luck to find out what really happened to her mom years ago. What follows are demons, a villainous necromatic warlock, an angel of justice (not sure what else to call Kel), and a whole host of side characters to pull the plot along. Corine Solomon has the curse of psychometry. She can “see” t [...]

  • First in the Corine Solomon urban fantasy series revolving around Corine, a handler of objects, and the new life she may be making in Laredo.My Take This was good! A completely different take on the paranormal emphasizing some unexpected Gifts: handling objects to learn their history and Luck. Aguirre creates a sense of everyone out for themselves at the start and as the story progresses, the truth of the main characters' intentions emerges creating the promise of a very interesting series. In t [...]

  • My ratings: 4 out of 5 stars.All that Corine Soloman has ever wanted was to lead a normal life. Working retail, sell antiques, and just be as normal as possible. But she is anything but normal. She is a handler. A rarity among the Gifted, she can see the final moment of any object that she holds in her hands. After running from one corner of the country to another , changing her appearances every time she is now fed up. This time she wants to settle down and not think about running away. But tha [...]

  • Read more reviews like this at lovelybooksblog!I’m not a fan of books that include a former lover coming back into a character’s life. For some reason not being able to see how they met always makes me feel like I’m being thrown into a story that has no background. However, Blue Diablo didn’t feel like that, I didn’t feel thrown into the story and Aguirre had a way of weaving the story in such a way that not having all the details of their relationship made sense instead of feeling dis [...]

  • Blue Diablo by Ann AguirreA Corine Solomon Novel18 months ago Corine Solomon left her lover and crossed the border to Mexico. She was fleeing her past and her gift, as a "handler".

She used it to find missing people - and that is now why people want to find her.That is how her ex, Chance shows up in her store. He has an ability that gives him luck.

  • Corine is a handler which means that she can touch an item and know it's history but using her gift comes at a high price. She has been living in Mexico City for the last 18 months trying to hide from her ex-boyfriend Chance and the life they had together. Although they used to help people with her gift they often ended up getting into trouble and made some dangerous enemies along the way. Now Corine just wants to live a quiet life and keep her "gift" a secret. When Chance arrives on her doorste [...]

  • RATING: 1.5 stars.I don't know if it's the author's writing style (it must be, at least partially, as I had some trouble getting through Grimspace as well) but this one was hard to read through. The plot was very simple and straightforward, not that interesting; maybe not enough for a full novel, so the author fills pages and pages with Corine (the main - sort-of - character) contemplating her past relationship with Chance, her ex-boyfriend who appears on her doorstep at the beginning asking for [...]
