Despite being in a relationship with Michael, Jordan retains her individuality and continues to entertain with her witty humour and observations. This book sees Jordan struggling to maintain her relationship with Michael whilst Belial constantly tries to seduce her. Although it has become a regular trope in young adult fantasy fiction to have a love triangle, Kyoko M. manages to maintain originality.
Jordan is stronger and although she is evidently attracted to Belial she aims to keep her loyalty to Michael. Despite the interests of Michael and Belial, again Jordan continues to be an independent and strong character who is not weakened by the presence of two strong male characters.
Belial was a funny and charming archdemon when he played the recurring villain in The Black Parade. This time he returns as a major character. I believe the villain can either make or break a book and Belial is one of the major reasons She Who Fights Monsters was a great read. He is a character who loves to create conflict and is happy to speak aloud about matters that should be kept hushed.
Although I love the villain, in some books they create a fantastic villain but then they give him too much screen time. I find this can undermine the villain's authority and power but this is not the case with Belial. Kyoko has created a badass villain and he deserves the title as one of the 'Fallen princes of Hell.'
Unlike The Black Parade that is written in Jordan's POV, She Who Fights Monsters also gives us Michael's POV. Michael is a solid character and unlike other main male characters who tend to get soppy (Twilight's Edward and Jacob, The Vampire Diaries' Stefan, Mortal Instruments' Jace and Simon) Michael is not afraid to hold his ground and fight for what he believes. When Michael makes a threat - I believe him.
The only nit-pic I have is that I was not so keen on the appearance of Jordan's long-lost father. Kyoko managed to make this side-plot an interesting read and it maintained my attention but I failed to see how it added much to the overall story. But this section did not take much of the book so I can hardly complain.
I didn't mention it in my last review but I will here. I really enjoyed the literature references in both The Black Parade and She Who Fights Monsters. It is clear the book has been well researched and Kyoko creates realistic and empathetic personalities for people we may have read in history books or heard about. As a film nerd, I particularly like the film references!
What I love about this series is that Jordan could kick Bella's, Elena's and Clary's asses without breaking a sweat.

She Who Fights Monsters reminds readers that inner demons can plunder through dreams and relationships just as well as any beast from hell. To be perfectly fair, it is hard for any girl to fight monsters when the cucuy (boogie-man) under the bed is sexy, seductive, and willing to tag team for both husband and wife on their wedding night!
The wicked gives rest the middle finger and threatens to destroy everything precious to Jordan Amador. Our favorite stubborn seer returns for more papi issues and fatal battles in She Who Fights Monsters, the second installment of Kyoko M’s Black Parade series. The appearance of Jordan’s biological father pushes her to make a choice that could eventually ruin her. A midst her struggle to be the wife that Michael deserves, Jordan decides that she is the only one who can save the world from a seer assassin and the apocalypse. Her battle tactics strain her marriage and most of her other relationships, including her bond with Gabriel.
She Who Fights Monsters is definitely a must-read that presents the readers with living horrific beasts that rival destructive intangible monsters that people often succumb to. Guilt, regret, resentment, love and jealousy make The Black Parade heroes and demons very human. Kyoko M. successfully made fantastic fictional beings like the devil’s most lustful servant, Belial, relatable. Belial’s efforts to save Jordan’s life, end Jordan’s life, and destroy her marriage seemed to be fueled by love. As a demon, Belial should only feel lust for the woman he can never have but his loyalty to the dark side was compromised with a very “human” need to keep Jordan safe and at his side.
She Who Fights Monsters is a fast paced read with vivid descriptions of a reality featuring a sex deprived demon that is too hot to file a restraining order against, an angel who just wants to be with his wife, and one woman who has to fight to balance it all before the monsters consume her.
