In her acclaimed Women of the Otherworld series, Kelley Armstrong has created a scintillating realm where the supernatural and the human coexist on the edge of darkness, romance, and eternity. Personal Demon, the eighth Otherworld book, is another wickedly entertaining tale of a young woman with an insatiable lust for danger. She can't help it; it's in her blood.Tabloid reporter Hope Adams appears to live the life of an ordinary working girl. But, in addition to possessing the beauty of a Bollywood princess, Hope has other unique traits. For she is a half-demon-a human fathered by a demon. And she has inherited not only a gift for seeing the past but a hunger for chaos-along with a talent for finding it wherever she can. Naturally, when she's chosen by a very dangerous group for a very dangerous mission, she jumps at the chance.The head of the powerful Cortez Cabal-a family that makes the mob look like amateurs-has a little problem in Miami: a gang of wealthy, bored offspring of supernaturals is getting out of hand, and Hope is needed to infiltrate. As spells, astral projections, and pheromones soar across South Beach, Hope weaves her way through its elite hot spots, posing as upscale eye candy and reading the auras of the clientele-and potential marks.As it turns out, Hope is a little too good at this job, and soon she's in a little too deep, needing to be bailed out by her jewel-thief werewolf ex-boyfriend and by the Cortez heir himself. And when a killer goes to work, Hope is among many targets at the pinnacle of Cabal rule. 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.Sexy and suspenseful, Personal Demon is a thrill ride through a world on the wild side of our own.

While Hope was the main lead in this book she didn't hold my interst half as much as Lucas did with his storyline. The Cabal suffers a major attack and Lucas is forced to deal with the aftermath of several connected incidents that threaten the very foundation of the Cabal. Hope's story was entertaining but Lucas' was gripping. I just had to finish and find out what happened. I am sure that the events here will shake things up for Lucas and Paige permanently and it looks like Lucas will have some serious decisions to make in the future that may challenge his ethics in order to save the very institution he has spent years fighting. Personal Demons left me eagerly awaiting Living with the Dead (Women of the Otherworld, Book 9) to see what happens next to Lucas and Paige, who along with Jeremy (and not one mention of Jeremy and Jamie - I was disappointed), are my favorites in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. I will miss Laural Merlington as the Narrator for the next few books (why change a well established narrator more then halfway through a series? I hope book 9 takes us back to Lucas story or to another character I have come to love.

Hope Adams, heiress and half demon daughter of Lucifer, finally gets a chance to pay her debt to the Cortez Cabal and show her ex, the werewolf Karl, that she can handle a tough case on her own.

It's a simple job, according to cabal leader, Benecio Cortez. All he wants is for her to infiltrate a Miami-based youth gang to determine exactly what kind of trouble these kids are going to pose for the cabal.

Hope gets clearance from Luke Cortez, Benecio's declared heir, who works with the Council. Lucas, who is Benecio's youngest and illegitimate son, is an opponent of the cabals--seeing them as exploiters of the supernatural employees, so he's advising Hope to use caution because Benecio may well not be telling her everything he knows.

Both Hope and Lucas end up in danger as they try to sort out precisely what is happening. There's a serious threat to the Cortez Cabal as well as Hope herself. Both Hope and Lucas have to face their own personal demons to see this situation through.
