Scars to match those deep in her soul.After she almost died on one of their cases, Corine cut out in the middle of the ight, leaving her fianc and business partner, Chance behind.
Chance is delicious -- dapper, half-Korean, completely intriguing, and ery much in love with Corine, but unsure how to show it.
There 's also interesting secondary characters, such as Chance 's friend Chucho, and his widow, Eva, who help this couple in many important ways; Jesse, who 's a cop in Laredo with a gift for empathy.
He appoints himself as Corine 's mentor in the world of the gifted, but he tries to hav more.
And there 's a killer who considers himself the hand of God. Is he going to help or hinder Corine and Chance in their search for his mother? Normally, I do n't like my noir urban fantasy too filled with romantic angst, but it was well done and fitting in this tal.
I think Ms. Aguirre told a great retelling of dark magic being used to further the criminal enterprises of those who prey on the strange entity that is the border of Mexico and Texas.
Indeed, this was great foray into the dark world of bordertown Texas and Mexico, where magic is alive and well.
Corine is a character I got invested in, and I really inten to writ more stories with her.
