Day 2: 4 Fangs for A Hint of Hell by Claire Chilton

He's just failed at being evil... Kieron Lascher thought his life as a minor demon lord in Hell couldn't get any worse, but when he fails his exams and is sent into another realm as punishment by his parents, he realizes that there are worse places than Hell. With deadly beasts and evil Satan Claws roaming the frosty land, Kieron has to fight to survive. With the help of a banished succubus, he learns that he needs to find the missing codex to gain some power. If he manages to take out Satan Claws and learn pure evil, he might be able to open a portal and go back home. But first, he has to master being truly evil to some cute little elves. That won't be difficult for a demon lord, right? **The Demon Diaries is a  series of best selling teen to new adult, paranormal comedy books.

Melanie’s Review

 

I discovered this author when I first started blogging. Her book Demonic Dora cracked me the hell up. I loved every bit of it, and I have since enjoyed every book she has published that I have read. They all have that little bit of extraness that keeps the reader interested and wondering just what will she will do next! I hope you take a minute to check out Claire Chilton’s books. I’m glad I took a chance on this new to me author when I had the opportunity!

 

I seriously love this author. She builds the coolest worlds and the craziest characters that I can’t help but laugh at. She must have one hell of an imagination! I would like to just live in her brain for a few days and see what else she’s got going on up there!

In my opinion, A Hint of Hell was better than A Hint of Magic. It just had more to it. More action, more adventure, more everything. As with Chilton’s other books, it was full of snark, corny jokes, and clever one liners, which are some of the things I really like and enjoy in any book.

 

In AHoH, the focus is on Kieron. He’s the Demon guy that’s in love with Dora and lives in Hell with his Demon Lord father, and mentally unstable mother. His grandmother scares me. She’s into BDSM which, to me, is a very disturbing thing to know about your grandmother. I would probably throw up if I found out my grandmother was into that. Some things just don’t need to be shared! So essentially, Kieron has a stereotypical weird, embarrassing family in that sense. I mean if you look at it from the perspective that he does reside in HELL, which for many of us is our own personal versions of Hell.

 

I Definitely liked this more than A Hint of Magic. Much more action and adventure. Claire Chilton’s books are exciting and unique, and in the world of the paranormal, that is refreshing. She pulls a bit from so many different paranormal/supernatural elements and squashes them into one big bunch of awesomeness.

 

Ever since the first book of Chilton’s that I ever read, Demonic Dora, I have been smitten with this author, her characters, and her world of make believe. I recommend her books to everyone with a sense of humor who looking for a fun read.
