This book is a seriously funny light read. As the saying goes; some are born to greatness, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them (don't remember who said it though). Apparently for Demon Slayers it is all of the above. Our heroine Lizzie was born to be a demon slayer (though she doesn't know it), does achieve that ability (if she didn't we would have no story), and it is definitely thrust upon her against her will.
Lizzie's grandmother is a witch, and a part of a coven that fronts as a biker club. They are as hard riding and wild as any motorcycle club you want to meet. Their current focus is to protect Lizzie so she can (what else?) slay demons.
Along the way she encounters, many mythical creatures, mostly from the dark side, bent on causing trouble. Of course we get to watch Lizzie learn to deal with them. The witches are powerful and intimidating, but they are also mischievous, petty and vindictive. They store spells in glass jars and have no compunctions about using them on each other. The spells themselves are hilarious and I leave it to you to read about them.
I expected The Accidental Demon Slayer to be somewhat reminiscent of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and it is, but much more in the comic vein. It is also the first of the seven book Demon Slayer series. I haven't read the next six books, but I happily note that The Accidental Demon Slayer maintains its comic focus throughout. It doesn't get all serious on us.
The Accidental Demon Slayer gives us action and adventure, suspense, magic, romance (in a strange way) even a bit of redemption, all wrapped up in a fun, and funny, tale.
The Accidental Demon Slayer is definitely an adult story. There is a strong sexual thread though the story; sexual thoughts, sexual desires, and sexual activities. In keeping with the general tone of the book, the sexuality is usually depicted in a humorous way. Not torrid, graphic sex, but steamy enough anyway.
The coven is able to place spells in booby traps, and it may well be that they placed a Giggle Spell on The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox. I know it kept me chuckling. A good, light, fun and funny read. Enjoy!
To preschool teacher Lizzie Brown, her birthday means a well-organized night out with friends; to the demon-fighting world, her birthday means she's coming into her powers, and they need to step on it to find her, train her, and get her ready to fight or have her powers taken by the demons and allow the demons to walk the earth. So of course, the grandma she's never met shows up on a Harley and helps her beat up a mini demon that pokes it head up through her toilet...then they hit the road, running for their lives, back to grandma's coven of bike-riding witches who keep spells in glass jars and hang at the biker bar.
I guess my main issue was how quickly Lizzie normalizes this new life. And my second issue might be how unprepared the coven seemed to be since they've seen this coming (the demon essentially ate the other 3 covens up and has been gunning for them for years). I'll go back to the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series, but I doubt I'll read another of this one.
Enjoyed the dog, though. Once Lizzie comes into her powers, she can suddenly hear her dog talking to her.
There is so many twists and turns in this story line you do not know where your headed till the next turn hits you in the face. It is jam packed with action, suspense and attraction. Now, the attraction is on and off again as the leading lady fights with herself and the other witches. The fights between ant eater and the leading lady is down right funny. You will swap from being angry to laughing and then holding your breath during this whole book!
Even at the end when you think it has ended ... there is a new twist that is mind boggling! I only wish I had not wasted so much time in not finding the time to read this great book!!
She is a demon slayer and she will get her power at the exact time of her birth on her 30th birthday. It is a gross, fast paced, and funny ride. Southern biker witches with Southern magic- possums, raccoons and squirrels-are common in their potions and feasts. A Griffin, werewolves, demons, etc. keep this book moving along. The battle to save Grandma from Vald, a demon trapped in the Fifth level of Hell, is the ultimate test in this quick training session.
Even the rather detailed sex scenes are funny. Who stops to discuss their belief in total commitment at the height of passion.
