From the Author

DROP DEAD DEMONS, the exciting sequel is a #1 Best Seller and #1 Hot New Release available now on Amazon! Here's the synopsis! Thanks for all the amazing fan support, and visit us at, and, we'd love to hear from you!

Survival. It's an on-going battle.
Aurora Lahey finally knows why supernatural slayers salivate to slaughter her, but how to stop them? Not so much. Sure, she's discovered her own lethal powers, and has six sexy, super-charged, demon hunting Hex Boys watching her back--the hottest one watching every part of her. But when a seductive stranger delivers a deadly ultimatum, Aurora and the Hex Boys plunge into a do-or-die hunt for a legendary Mandatum treasure, which will finally shift power in their favor. Or unleash hell on earth.
Pursued by demons of mythical proportions, Aurora and the Hex Boys race deeper into the shadowy world of a centuries-old mystery and brutal conspiracy, where no one and nothing is what it seems. Where love and betrayal go hand-in-hand, and trusting the wrong person not only breaks your heart, but gets you killed.
Uncovering shocking secrets from the Hex Boys' past, hiding her Divinicus Nex identity, lying to her pretend-wish-he-were-real boyfriend, dodging demons, breaking into ancient tombs, taking the unexpected side trip to the dark depths of the Waiting World, tracking a traitor, and passing Physics...Aurora could do that in her sleep. Or more likely, die trying.

Customer Reviews

I really fell in love with the main characters.
It was filled with tons of action, really great characters, a plot that drags you along for the ride and with just more than a dash of romance.
I can't wait to read the second book in the series!

Format: Paperback
The book opens introducing us to the heroine, Aurora. She is described as having long auburn curly hair, blue eyes and impossibly long legs. I admit that last description made me jelly so I was looking forward to hating Aurora. But, no. In the first chapter I see that she is funny, snarky, and a bit goofy. Shoot. I was going to like her. *looks down at short legs* Oh well... ;D

We find that Aurora has a gift... or a curse. She can see demons and they know about her. Why? The purpose? Well, that is part of her adventure. She has at least a couple of allies in which she can confide, but unfortunately, one is a cat and the other is an angel who she cannot get a hold of to answer even a few of her questions. She is thrown into the "protection" of the Hex Boys who have an odd reputation at her new school. Now she just has to figure out if they really want to protect her or kill her. Talk about an exhausting few weeks! This virtual non-stop action turns out to be quite a fun ride.

Now about those Hex Boys. All of them gorgeous ('nuff said... *giggles*)! And this is how I met them in my mind: These boys are jerks! Then: These boys have a reason to be jerks, but still... To my final analysis: Oh yea, I would have totally hung out with these guys in high school. Yep, I'm a believer! There is also a possible romance going on with one of the boys, so those that insist on having your swooning in your adventure will not be disappointed.

This book was refreshing. One main reason? No clichés I've seen around the blogoverse that annoy many of us in the YA genre. No love triangles (and one good joke about them). There is a dance around the romance, but it isn't that hair pulling out kind, but it was fun. The heroine is smart, intelligent, snarky and willing to learn.

This book had a very underwhelming start. Right off the bat, there were a bunch of clumsily written action sequences that were rather difficult to follow. And aside from the clunky and somewhat annoying writing style, the humor wasn't really doing it for me -- Aurora's little witticisms were really lame and had me constantly rolling my eyes. There's a fine line between 'fun' and 'just plain ridiculous' and this book seemed like it would fall in the latter category. It all felt a little too silly and young for me, and I was about to chalk it up as a bust. I started skimming but then, all of a sudden, I came upon a part that made me laugh out loud. I decided to try to get back into it and as I read further, I noticed a marked improvement in the writing. It began flowing better, the dialogue started getting funnier, the story hit its stride and before I knew it, I was really enjoying the book. Granted, it did still get a little too silly every once in awhile, but I guess I was just more forgiving of it the further into the book I got and as the plot deepened.

So despite the shaky start, this turned out to be a pretty decent, FUN read and I'll probably pick up the next one to see what adventures our gang of demon hunters embark on next, seeing as the author set things up nicely for a book 2 (IS there going to be a book 2? Hmm I don't see it on amazon so maybe not.)

Snarky, fast and furious, Demons at Deadnight by A & E Kirk is fast paced and hilarious, providing an epically fantastic read and and seriously divine experience.

Aurora and her family have just moved back to the town she grew up in. We aren't quite sure why they've moved back, but we know something has spurred this move, beyond the normal reasons. Aurora is welcomed into this small town with a demon shove and a totaled SUV, which is an excellent representation of the pacing of most of the story. While attempting to fight get away from this amazingly grotesque demon, Aurora bumps, and I mean literally, into the sexiness that is her neighbor and some of his friends. The Hexy Knights, six ab-tastic guys made of swoon, are Aurora's friends of old, all grown up. Together, they will run the gauntlet of demons in the hopes that Aurora will come out alive.

Do you think you know paranormal fiction? Well, you probably do, but you don't know the amazingness of it until you've busted out Demons at Deadnight and read it from cover to cover. Aurora is fast on her feet, which is quite important due to the hordes of demons chasing after her, cause you know, they want her dead before she unleashes death upon them. Aurora, confused beyond belief how she's to deliver these killing blows, just keeps running, attempting with all her might, not to end up dead. She'd like to be alive to keep spending time with her family and lets be honest, with the Hex Boys.

Now, I will never be able to do their personalities justice, but think 6 best friends, all boys, who's washboard abs beg for a rub and I'm sure some tongue. Beyond the hotness are the personalities. Truly witty and fun, the lot is full of the flirtatious, smoldering, brooding, thoughtful and enigmatic.

So, just finished a re-read in anticipation of the sequel (coming next week!).

I adore this book! Aurora is funny and klutzy and I can't help but like her. I love her family and kind of wish I could hang out with them. I love the Hex Boys and can't wait to hear more of their backstory as the series progresses.

Aurora starts off in this series as a bit of a damsel in distress. She's being attacked by demons because of her Divinicus Nex status, but she doesn't know anything about what that is, what it means, or the defensive powers that she has. She ends up in the nurses office and/or hospital quite a bit. But you can see that the authors are shaping her up to get more powerful and I can't wait to see the strong female lead I'm sure she will become!

I will warn readers that there are a lot of characters to keep up with and, in typical teenage fashion, the misunderstandings go on a bit longer than is necessary.

I first read this book a couple of years ago and I'm DYING for the sequel...8 more days :-)
