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.
This is the third book in the series. There are a lot more, but 1) this is as far as I got, and 2) this one is 5 star. For me this book is just better than the first two. I don’t know why, because all the main characters are still in it. Maybe it just resonates with me more.
So this story starts with Lizzie and her hot Griffin boyfriend Dimitri travelling to Greece where Dimitri is from. His families estate includes his twin sisters, the ones saved in the first book. As they get there something is amiss, very amiss. The story kind of falls of a cliff, not in a bad way. Lizzie is like “I am going to lay in the sun on the beach OH GOD!!!” Okay it isn’t that bad, but close. So bad in fact, that Lizzie has the witches come and well they do what they do. Did I tell you that his estate is old, and fragile like? Witches don’t care for old stuff, or armor, or rocks, or a really nice garden. You get my point.
The problem is that what is happening is pretty much all hot Griffin boy’s doing, at least he owns up to it. This story has more woe is me attitude from Lizzie, which at the beginning was a downer. However, the reason behind it is pretty important to the story line, and I can get behind some of it. Overall I don’t know if it is the distance, the exotic country, or the actual plot that makes me enjoy it so much.
As this is not the last of the series I do worry that they start to get a little old. There is only so much “demon killing” that can happen before they all start to sound alike. The series so far is well thought-out. I hope the rest follow in that tone. I think one of the reasons I like this is it isn’t Lizzie trying to just help other people. She has some issues herself going on, and she has to combat them as well as help people. I mean literally combat her own issues, like in the face, throwing stars. Which reminds me, that belt 0f hers is going to be in some trouble when she finally figures out what is going on with it. I mean literally, it is coming alive around her.
So very good book in the series, hope the rest are good, meet some new people, and enjoy it. Not much else to say 🙂
