Peronal Demon( book 8 in the Woman of the Otherworld series) by Kelly Armstrong

Personal Demon (Women of the Otherworld, #8) Personal Demon by Kelley Armstrong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary (from the book jacket)
Hope Adams, tabloid journalist and half-demon, inherited her Bollywood-princess looks from her mother. From her demon father, she inherited a hunger for chaos, and a talent for finding it. Like full demons, she gets an almost sexual rush from danger - in fact, she thrives on it. But she is determined to use her gifts for good.

When the head of the powerful Cortez Cabal asks her to infiltrate a gang of bored, rich, troublemaking supernaturals in Miami, Hope can't resist the excitement. But trouble for Hope is intoxicating, and soon she's in way too deep.

With a killer stalking the mystical hot spots of Miami, Hope finds herself dangerously entangled, and has no choice but to turn to her crooked werewolf ex-boyfriend for help. What started as a simple investigation has spiralled into chaos. And Hope finds chaos irresistible...

For a woman who didn’t know what she was getting into, there’s only one way out: it’s time for Hope to unleash her most potent primal instincts and open herself, mind and body, to everything she most fears and desires.

My thoughts:
Personal Demon is the 8th installment in the amazing Woman of the Otherworld series by Kelly Armstrong. Like every other book in this series it kept me entertained and addicited to the very last page.
Personal Demon is narrated in first person by both Hope and Lucas. I find with both characters narrating it gives you a better understanding of both worlds in the book and make the twists come together perfect. Hope is a half demon with a craving for chaos. And Lucas is the youngest and distant son of the leader of the Cortez Cabal narrating.

I've read Bitten(book 1 in the Woman of the otherworld series) a while back and I've been hooked ever since. Not every book follows the same characters but every few books the main characters reoccur so it should be read in order so you can understand the extra characters and relationships.
The depth of character development throughout this story is absolutely amazing and knowing your favorite characters will reappear again in future books makes it even better. I really like Hopes character and find her werewolf ex-boyfriend James well written and refreshing (not to mention, funny and cute). Each book is amazing and I now find it hard to choose who I like more, Hope or Elena. Both are amazing, strong female characters who kick ass and take names.
Personal Demon was an amazing installment in the Woman of the Otherworld series that is a awesome edition to the supernatural gendre that has plenty of action and romance with amazing twists and surprises!If you haven't read this series yet, get started!
