This is a continuation of the Corine Solomon series
As a "handler" Corine Solomon can touch anything and learn its history. Her gift has thrown her life off track. The magical inheritance she received from her mother is dangerous, and she has been marked as a black witch by dealing with demons to solve her problems.
Back home she is trying to rebuild her pawnshop and her life despite the target on her back. But when the demons she provoked kidnap her best friend, Corine goes on the warpath to rescue her.
Aguirre builds great characters, with a riveting plot line in a well-developed world. Twists, turns and transformations keep the reader unable to put it down to the end. Urban Fantasy lovers rejoice. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
