Overall rating: 4/5
While this has been my (final) exam season of my undergrad, I took breaks to read and managed to finish two books! This one was particularly interesting to me, because I had never read Hope Adams’ story before. She had popped up in other books I’ve read from the series, but I’d never read a book that focused on her primarily.
Hope is an Expisco half-demon, which means she can detect chaos and have visions of chaos, and works for a trashy newspaper. She works for the interracial council, and has a debt with the Cabal Cortex. The head of the Cortez Cabal, Benicio, reaches out to Hope to pay her debt: he wants her to infiltrate a Maimi supernatural gang, find out what they are saying about the Cabal, and her debt is paid.
