    About Kelley Armstrong

    1. WrensReads Review I just want to stop and take a moment to love everything that Kelley Armstrong has written that I have read so far She is the goddess of writing.So Hope was introduced in the previous book She is a half demon father being Lucifer who takes pleasure in chaotic thoughts and acts She knows when you are about to pull the trigger, and she probably won t stop you because it is just such a high for her.Anyway, she has a fling with Karl, who was actually introduced in the very first bo [...]

    2. Book 8 in the Women of the Otherworld series and definitely one of the weakest.Hope Adams originally introduced in the novella Chaotic in Dates From Hell , a tabloid reporter and a half demon who feeds on chaos, is called upon by Benicio Cortez to infiltrate a gang of supernaturals who have been creating some trouble for Cabal in Miami Hope fits in very quickly and soon starts enjoying not only the chaos created by the gang s criminal activities but the company of one gang member The fun stops w [...]

    3. I love Karl Marsten Who would have thought Personal Demon was another decent Kelley Armstrong read This book is about Hope Adams, a chaos demon, who we ve met in a short story in Dates from Hell Besides Hope, we also get to read Lucas Cortez POV In the beginning I felt Hope was interesting enough to have her own book, instead of sharing a narrative voice with Lucas But along the way Lucas really added something extra to the story and reading about his struggle with his family turned out to be re [...]

    4. 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 t [...]

    5. The Women of the Otherworld series started with a werewolf named Elena, and soon this world expanded to a whole cast of characters including white witch Paige, orphan Savannah, sorcerer and successor to the Cortez Cabal Lucas, psychic Jamie, alpha werewolf Jeremy, and of course Elena s on again off again love and resident werewolf psychopath, Clayton Personal Demon introduced the reader to Hope Adams, half demon and chaos reader Hope has appeared briefly in previous books although I couldn t rem [...]

    6. Remember when we met Before you left, you said you were going to make a fool of yourself over me That s still what you re worried about That you ll find yourself doing things you never dreamed of doing, things you laughed at in others, and you ll make a fool of yourself I m iffy on character head jumping within a series in the first place, but it s been working well so far Hope was introduced in Broken, but takes the center stage in Personal Demon Unusually, Armstrong divides a little of the boo [...]

    7. I do love this book but it isn t my favourite in the series, mostly cause while I do like Hope a lot she isn t my favourite I do love Karl though, plus Lucas gets some chapters to narrate and I loved getting in his head a little when he was dealing with his father, brothers and the cabal Poor Hope did go through hell in this though most of it was because of her own naiviety, stubborness and refusal to see the truth She latched onto Jaz to get over Karl and when Karl came back and they got togeth [...]

    8. I wasn t expecting much from this addition to Armstrong s Women of the Otherworld series from the mild reviews it s gotten since it s release but I decided to pick it up anyway and, surprisingly enough Hope holds her own against previous heroines such as Elena, Paige and recently Jamie.Though I didn t mind the dual perspectives given the other being Lucas Cortez and even understood that it added to a rounded telling of the story I felt like the novel wasn t only Hope s novel but a continuation [...]

    10. I can t believe that I held off on reading this for so long because I really wasn t feeling the prospect of Hope and Karl being coupled up and now they re a few steps away from OTP territory.

    11. Book 8 in the Otherworld series Has Werewolves, Witches and other demons in it Hope is a reporter and is hired by a group to go undercover and find out what a gang is up to She sees and hears a lot that puts her life in jeopardy Was a fun read.

    12. This started out dull, got fairly interesting in the middle, then had an irritating ending.I really dislike the inclusion of a surprise chameleon character who can assume the countenance of other people Ditto for glamor spells that achieve the same purpose These things are acceptable if they are known quantities throughout the book, but sneaking them in at the end is a lame plot device It s trite and annoying to trick the reader into thinking that a beloved character has been killed and then rev [...]

    13. Personal Demon is book 8 in the Women of the Otherworld Series by Kelley Armstrong This story is about Hope and Karl view spoiler Hope is a young, vibrant, sexy woman who s trying her hardest to get over her past relationship with Karl Karl is an older, sexy werewolf who loves hope but is fighting his feelings for her He told her to date other people, other paranormals, to be with someone who s appropriate for her Hope is trying to move on and to forget about him When she s called upon from Ben [...]

    14. Best book in the Women of the Otherworld series so far One thing I like about Armstrong is that her writing gets stronger the books she writes This book was no exception In this book, we get to learn about Hope who was introduced in No Humans Involved I don t think it was earlier, but it could have been Hope owes a debt to the Cortez Cabal, so when Benicio asks her to do a job, she says yes In this book, the point of view shifts between Hope, who is undercover examining a gang of supernaturals [...]

    15. Kelley Armstrong is brilliant as always Well written characters and good story lines make her books easy to see yourself in and impossible to put down Personal Demon is no exception This book is written from two points of view which is uncharacteristic of her and while it is a bit disorientating at first is quickly overcome and proves to make the book only that much harder to put down As with her other books when you do finally reach the last few chapters the ending is bittersweet you get to see [...]

    16. This is the 8th book in the Women of the Otherworld series and I think it s the only one I have given 3 stars to For whatever reason, I just couldn t get into it as much as I wanted I partly blame the book cover I m reading this on Kindle, but every time I get on I m forced to look at this stupid ass cover It shouldn t sway my opinion, but it did Also, I really don t like books that have the word, bro in it Unfortunately, this one did Other than that I enjoyed it I liked learning about Hope and [...]

    17. Yum I had intended to knit last night but that somehow ended up with me lying in bed an hour later than I normally go to bed and finishing this book This book threw me for a loop at first The point of view shifts between Hope and Lucas through most of the book I would normally find this annoying but I think it was a good way to weave the subplot into the plot It was all pretty much tied together anyway so it was just a perspective switch that you had to get over And I think the stuff that happen [...]

    18. AudiobookThis story is technically about two couples Hope Karl and Paige Lucas but it s really about Hope Karl mostly and how he screwed up their relationship, tried to fix it, but it might have been too late There s a 3rd person that is piquing Hope s interest but she needs to figure out whether he s a good or bad guy Paige Lucas help her out This story was pretty good Hope forgave Karl pretty quickly but then Karl s reason for breaking up with her was just stupid male pride, so I probably woul [...]

    19. It was a good story, and I really liked the mystery I loved reading a little bit from Lucas s point of view although his pov was a bit bland, it gave great insight into the cabals and how they work One thing I didn t like however was Hope and Karl s relationship I like them in the short story in Dates from Hell but in an actual story line I couldn t stand them He acts like he s her dad or something, constantly ordering her around don t do this you can t do that Please Hope is a grown adult, Karl [...]

    20. RereadReally intrigued by the idea of super powers as addiction as presented through Hope s thirst for chaos and the ever present hunger of the werewolf INTERESTING FOOD FOR THOUGH ALSO view spoiler Don t The tray s edge dug into my thumb, and I realized I was still holding it clutching it and set it down This isn t the time No, it isn t But it will soon be the time Carlos is alive and probably innocent Then there are my cousins I heard the desperation in my voice and cleared my throat There wil [...]

    21. This is the 8th instalment of the Women of the Otherworld series I think this is the best instalment so far I had a lot of fun reading this book Hope Adams is a very rare breed of half demon an Expisco demon a type of demon that many people would like to get their hands on, if only for the novelty factor As such, she finds herself sometimes dealing with a cast of extremely dangerous characters This is exactly the situation she finds herself immersed in this time around While out on a job as a re [...]

    22. Personal Demon is a well written story that integrates the complex world building and strong female characters common in the rest of the Otherworld series.Having enjoyed six other installments in Armstrong s Otherworld series, I was excited to read Personal Demon I especially like Armstrong s strong female characters and appreciate the spectrum of female protagonists she has employed in her stories everything from woman werewolves and vampires to ghosts and witches As a half chaos demon who is r [...]

    23. The ninth instalment of the Women of the Otherworld series, Personal Demon proves that Kelley Armstrong still spends every ounce of effort on these books There s no slacking of, no characters that slowly turn into two dimensional versions of themselves, and the plot is as fast paced as ever.Hope is a half demon Demons have fancy super powers and a thirst for chaos Regular half demons get the fancy powers Hope got stuck with the thirst for chaos So when she is called in by the Cabal CEO, basicall [...]

    24. I was reasonably interested in both Hope s character and her relationship with Karl going into this book, but I felt like I never really got to know her that well I thought her relationship with Karl was handled decently enough though I have an admitted weakness for reconciliation plot lines but Hope s actual arc seemed fairly thin She s drawn to chaos She worries that makes her evil She decides it doesn t The romantic arc was actually compelling and even that relied mostly on stuff that went o [...]

J ai moins accroch e sur Hope que sur les autres h ro nes mais Karl en fait voil un bad guy qui devient gentil sans devenir niais ni se renier totalement Et j avoue que j ai ador la partie sur Lucas J adorerais le voir aux prises avec la cabales, va t il prendre sa place ou continuer la rejeter

    26. Hope Adams s demon heritage has given her the ability to sense the supernatural and a disturbing taste for chaos and darkness Being a kind and compassionate person is particularly hard for her, when the greater the cruelty, the greater the high she gets from it To pay off a debt to the Cortez Cabal, she agrees to infiltrate a supernatural gang in Miami But she begins to find being on the wrong side of the law a little too exhilaratingWill she be able to pull back from the lure of chaos highs, or [...]

    27. I thought I would have liked this one because I was excited for Hope and Karl And they re great Their romantic plot was fine Their conflict pretty quickly resolved which I think kinda did them a disservice even though it was nice to see them get back together It was almost as if they only had conflict in their romance just so we could have the push pull understanding of Hope s power and set up of Jaz s attention to Hope The first half of the book is rather slow but it does pick up When Lucas an [...]

    28. This is definitely a must read for anyone who enjoys this series It is quite different from Kelley Armstrong s earlier books because instead of having just one female narrator we have one female, Hope Adams chaos half demon and one male Lucas Cortez sorceror and reluctant heir to the Cortez Cabal I did wonder why we needed to see Lucas s side of things right up until a major plot development which will leave both him and Paige with a lot to worry about in future books Most readers probably won t [...]
