Day 26: Styx and Stoned by Boone Brux

Las Vegas! All expenses paid!

Normally, a trip like that would be a dream come true for a widowed, mother of three, who just happens to be grim reaper. Here’s the thing though, situations rarely work out as I imagine they should. And usually not in my favor.

This time isn’t any different. Instead of the endless free drinks and gambling I’d been hoping for, I get the opposite—demons, water zombies, and a bimbo ghost roommate, who gives new meaning to the phrase dead drunk.

But it’s not all bad. I’m making new friends, learning spectacular reaper skills, and saving souls. I just hope I don’t lose mine before I can get the Underworld all sorted out.

Styx and Stoned is a fast paced and fun read. Boone Brux has created a world and characters that are plenty entertaining. Honestly, she’s one of the funniest authors I’ve ever read.


This is the 2nd book in the series, and I have been waiting for what felt like forever to read it. I won a copy at Coastal Magic Con. It was worth every minute of waiting.


Lisa goes to Las Vegas on Reaper business. I swear this woman has worse luck than I do, and that’s saying something. While we don’t get to witness any of her stupid people reaping, there is plenty of other action and adventure. One thing I love about this character is that I can relate to her on a level that just doesn’t happen in other books. She’s a mom, she has shitty luck, and just can’t get a break. I understand that completely.


In Styx and Stoned we learn a lot about the other characters in the series. I understand Hal a lot better than I did previously, and now I can understand why he’s such a wanker.


Overall this was a funny, enjoyable read. I laughed through most of the book, and I really like when that happens. The action never really stops and you never know what will happen next!
