It's never a good day when an ancient demon shows up on your toilet bowl. For Lizzie Brown, that's just the beginning. Soon her hyperactive terrier starts talking, and her long-lost biker witch Grandma is hurling Smuckers jars filled with magic. Just when she thinks she's seen it all, Lizzie learns she's a demon slayer-and all hell is after her. Of course, that's not the only thing after her. Dimitri Kallinikos, a devastatingly handsome shape-shifting griffin needs Lizzie to slay a demon of his own. But how do you talk a girl you've never met into going straight to the underworld? Lie. And if that doesn't work, how dangerous could a little seduction be...?(Courtesy of Amazon)
Demon slaying powers should come with an instruction book ...
Seriously. Why does a new hair dryer have a twelve-page how-to manual, but when it comes to ancient demon-fighting hocus-pocus, my biker witch granny gives me just half a dozen switch stars and a rah-rah speech? Oh, and a talking terrier, but that's another story. It's not like my job as a preschool teacher prepared me for this kind of thing.
So I've decided to write my own manual, The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, because no one tells me anything. Dimitri, my "protector," may be one stud of a shape-shifting griffin, but he always thinks he can handle everything by himself. Only he's no match for the soul-stealing succubi taking over Las Vegas. If I can't figure out how to save him - and Sin City - there'll be hell to pay.(Courtesy of Amazon)
Last month, I was a single preschool teacher whose greatest thrill consisted of color-coding my lesson plans. That was before I learned I was a slayer. Now, it's up to me to face curse-hurling imps, vengeful demons, and any other supernatural uglies that crop up. And, to top it off, a hunk of a shape-shifting griffin has invited me to Greece to meet his family. But it's not all sun, sand, and ouzo. Someone has created a dark-magic version of me with my powers and my knowledge--and it wants to kill me and everyone I know. Of course, this evil twin doesn't have Grandma's gang of biker witches, a talking Jack Russell terrier, or an eccentric necromancer on its side. In the ultimate showdown for survival, may the best demon slayer win.(Courtesy of Amazon)
Ok, I have to do these reviews together, because I snagged these up at a sale, and blew through them all in one weekend, so it was like one big fun book all together.
The story line was a little reminiscent of Katie MacAlister’s Aisling Grey series, which I LOVE. Our poor girl, gets sucked into a world she didn’t know anything about, her dog starts talking and she has a gorgeous shifter. Fox definitely kept it fun.
In Book 1, Fox tosses you right into Lizzie, and the craziness kicks up in full gear. She’s running to keep safe, and she has no idea what she’s doing. Fox heats it up between Lizzie and Dimitri and twists up the plot. I was having so much fun I didn’t want it to end.
Thankfully, Book 2 was waiting right by my side. Lizzie and Dimitri pick up and fall right into trouble again. I thought Fox’s ‘manual’ for demon slayers was fun as just about each chapter starts out with a tidbit from the manuscript. I was hoping for Lizzie to conquer all and keep hooking up with her hottie.
Open up Book 3, finally some time with our couple – yeah right. Lizzie’s life isn’t that easy and Fox keeps you jumping. In steps some competition for our leading lady. This was one of the favs of the three for me.
Now Book 4 is out – The Last of the Demon Slayers, it’s on my Kindle – getting to it soon!
and LOVE the covers!
