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...?
Yay my daughter is back to school after being sick so I am able to get back into the writing of things.
This author was actually at Coastal Magic and I know that a lot of bloggers got her next book for free. So if you were able to pick up her new book, this review is for the first one of the demon slayer series.
This book follows a stuck up soon to be 30 year old who lives with her dog Pirate and works for a day care. On the eve of her birthday her grandmother that she never knew shows up with a Harley and leather. Not to mention a bunch of weird jam jars full of stuff. What? She is an enterprising witch. Yup, I said it, ole grandma is a witch, and one that is dead set on getting Lizzie on the road before the demons come to get her.
The book follows the exploits of Lizzie and her grandmother Gertie as they meet up with Grandma coven, I mean biker gang, I mean group of old friends at their bar and then travel with Lizzie’s protector who just so happens to be a mythological beast. But you know, what is a girl and her protector to do when the big bad demon comes calling for her immortal soul.
The Accidental Demon Slayer started off a little rough, with sentences that did not really end, but starts on another tangent. The first two chapters were a little hard, but after I got though those it got a lot better. I actually was able to get into it and it was a really good read.
While meant to be a semi-serious book regarding witchcraft and demons, it was a lot of fun, and with a dog that rides around on a wheelchair you can’t help but laugh at how the author created the character personalities. I also really enjoy that while this is the first in a series it did not have the cliff hanger that you at times see in books of this nature. There is a bad guy, but the book has a conclusion, be it good or bad, it has a conclusion. I thank the author for that.
