DROP DEAD DEMONS Synopsis:
-
Survival. It's an on-going battle.
 
GOING ON A TREASURE HUNT...
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.
-
NEX MARKS THE SPOT...
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.
-
DEMONS ON YOUR TAIL...
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.

DON'T GET CAUGHT!

More About the Author

Alyssa loves animals (the family currently has two dogs, a cat, and a horse), anime, music, and action packed movies, plays board games, watches too much TV about supernatural beings and starring hot guys (preferably shirtless), and adores carbs so forces herself to exercise. Usually with her "little" brother, the 6'2", 4% body fat, totally ripped, 48 beats-per-minute resting heart rate, way-too-into fitness, soccer superstar - yeah, she hates that about him too.

Eileen loves much of the same stuff (other than anime, although she does enjoy the one where the characters often say, in a highly dramatic voice, "Dammit!"), has been married to the same guy for 25 years (prefers him shirtless), raised (barely survived) three crazy and adorable children, and loves to cook (mostly things with chocolate).

OR THE REAL STORY...
This bestselling mother-daughter writing duo were in and out of inter-dimensional
paranormal prisons until they finally quit making up cover stories for
secret societies and started writing novels. The Supernatural
Continuum Warlords of the Supernatural Continuum Warlordian
High Command had pity upon them, and instead of having them
slaughtered by the slow, tortuous flesh eating underwater, earthworm
squid, they transported them into a habitationally friendly dimension
called OOARCHTOHUTHLAMADILFRUMP, also known as 21st
Century Earth.
-
Due to a demon infestation in their sleepy mountain
California town, and a lack of sexy Hex Boys to stop them, Alyssa
and Eileen were forced to relocate to Los Angeles.

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.)

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.

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.

For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.

DEMONIC DESTINY
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti.

CHARISMATIC KILLERS
The Hex Boys—mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction—have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.

LETHAL ALLIES
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.

I'll try not to give many spoilers in this review, but I can't make any promises. This book was wonderful! My mom had read this before me, and told me how great is was, but I kept putting it off. Well, I really wish I wouldn't have put it off so long because I have nothing but compliments about the book.

One of the things I really appreciated about this book was the language. Aurora talked how a snarky teenager would talk, with her sharp and witty comebacks, and the boys talked exactly how guys talk (at least the guys I know). The book itself was hilarious. There were multiple times I was laughing out loud, and was almost in tears because I was laughing so hard. The other thing that I noticed was that this book was very well edited. I didn't see many mistakes, and I really appreciated that.
