Review by Camellia
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…?
Humorous, exciting, gory, and oh so scary, THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER races along at a fever pace, taking the reader into a swirl of strange happenings. Filled with witches, pixies, imps, nymphs, werewolves, demons, and even a super-sexy griffin, this story propels the straight-laced Lizzie into a bubbling cauldron of paranormal events that force her to acknowledge her other self – a kick-butt demon slayer.
Angie Fox keeps all the reader’s senses fully involved as she reveals Lizzie’s destiny with the Red Skulls witch coven that has more colorful characters in it then you can shake a stick at – not to mention the rituals and magic spells.
Pirate, Lizzie’s Jack Russell terrier is in his element with the witches and his special companion Bob. This feisty little fellow never fails to live up to his reputation – a delight.
Dimitri, whom Grandma Gertie warns Lizzie not to get involved with, claims to be Lizzie’s protector. A mystery about him keeps Lizzie on her toes as she struggles to learn how to be a demon slayer after her grandmother is taken. As Dimitri becomes her instructor, emotions escalate with death a lurking possibility at every turn.
A love so strong one is willing to sacrifice oneself for – a love so true that one person is willing to go to hell and back for that loved one -- builds to a breathtaking, soul-chilling climax that is not to be missed.
This is a wonderful face-value story, but it might be considered allegorical by some.
THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER is super reading for the avid paranormal reader and a smashing good way to get introduced to this genre if you haven’t enjoyed it before.
