Why, oh why must Greek hunks seem more delightful in books than they are in reality? Angie Fox, you have delivered us a delicious book once again!
Does being in love with her writing voice make me a fangirl? Will my obsession over her characters and amazing jokes finally prove I’m a lunatic not to be trusted anywhere near a book with awesome fictional people – and pets? Probably… But for now:
Lizzie Brown, a preschool teacher who was forced to become a badass demon slayer, has finally accepted her fate – and all the positive aspects that come with it, like a certain sexy griffin named Dimitri Kallinikos. But there are negative aspects in the deal, too. As she travels to Las Vegas with the Red Skulls – her grandmother’s coven consisting of biker witch grannies – , Dimitri, and her motormouth of a dog, Pirate, to save her uncle, Phill, from a succubus’s claws, Lizzie will have to tap into her inner strength and finally realize when to stand up for herself and when to ask for help – who to ask is completely irrelevant with the way her luck works, anyway…
Action, humor, love, paranormal activity. That’s nothing new, there are many books out there which seem to work on those themes. But none of them feels as funny as Fox’s Demon Slayer books. This one kept the suspense and adventure dipped in extra humor and complete, random, run-amock crack – just the way we like it! Witches that must have forgotten their true age somehow – since they don’t dress, talk OR behave the way they’re supposed to. A terrier that I admit I’ve fallen in love with. A heroine that despite her annoying attitude is likeable to a fault. And a love interest that makes ME melt even more than Lizzie – uh-huh, I kid you not! And now she’s added a freakin’ fuckable hunter in the mix, too!
With Lizzie as the main heroine, nothing is as it seems. No ally is pure in heart, no enemy has obvious weaknesses. And now that she’s decided to get properly educated on her powers, I can’t wait to read more of her adventures!
PS: Can we get more Max in the next books? I really loved this guy. My kind of dangerously hot and all that…
