The power swelled inside me, burning, hurting, but I let it center me. Pain means I’m still here, fighting. I envisioned it swelling in my hand in a seething rush, gathering, gathering, and then I sent it out on my resolve like a dark and winged thing riding the magickal wind.
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. But when the demons she provoked kidnap her best friend in retaliation, Corine puts everything on hold to save her. It’s undoubtedly a trap, but Corine would do anything to save those she loves, even if it means sacrificing herself…
"Love, friendship, evil demons, not so evil demons, yucky creatures, betrayal, kick-ass action: Devil's Punch has it all. Aguirre's writing is solid as ever and her world building is more than intriguing. I really like Aguirre's characterization as well. Corine is a feisty and like-able heroine, while Chance is a worthy hero." --Pearls Cast Before a McPig "Holy hells, this book was amazing. Corine remains one of my favorite of Ms. Aguirre's characters and, while Kel wasn't around in this book, I'm awed by the amount of worldbuilding and awesomeness that we got here." --NYT bestselling author Katee Robert
