AJ is the most annoying character that I still manage love. Because she seems to be two parts baddass babe and one part teenage boy, being in her head throughout this series is a comedy in and of itself. Her girlfriend, Ashlyn, is funny, sweet, and highly capable in her own right. And Danny Whitefang is more than a sidekick. He's a demon hunter without the benefit of a fancy hunter spirit inside, and he's the little brother than anyone would be glad to have. Draper does an excellent job keeping the action fast and the humor flowing. And believe me when I tell you that action and adventure is certainly at the forefront of this novel.
One thing that annoyed me a bit was the way the pre-Hell prep was drawn out. The constant delays and procrastination highlighted by AJ's constant childish humor was a little irritating and I yelled at my kindle to get on with it already! But within a few pages Draper dropped me right back into the action.
I don’t usually see a lot of solid action books with those speculative fiction elements that I so love. I needed a pick me up and some fairly mindless entertainment, and the fast pace of Drapers second Demon’s novel certainly delivered. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who likes action and adventure as well as urban fantasy/mythological inspired speculative fiction. Oh, and a boatload of sarcastic humor, let's not forget that.
First, as a reader: Spirits Smirits is immediately engaging, laugh out loud funny, and a happy circus of quirky humans, clever monsters and universal themes that will have you on tenterhooks drying out after feeling you have experienced everything right along with the main character. And that main character is a doozy, but Draper never allows her heroine to be sullied by perfection. She's that friend you wish you had--the one who obliterates all the dull moments in your life, with just the right combination of flawed and interesting. And her heroine is my heroine. I'm addicted.
As an aside, the sex scenes are also fantastic. No tedious play by play that smacks of the author's need to live vicariously through her characters. Just a form of poetry with a dash of salacious levity.
I'm a picky reader, and it takes a lot to get me to read an entire book. That's why I usually stick with authors who have proved themselves reliably able to tell a cracking good story without the slew of elementary errors so often found in Indie fiction. So far, Draper never disappoints, and Spirits Smirits is a flash-tour through a fantasy landscape that is as believable as it is absurd. It's a literary meal of porterhouse steak with pistachio pudding pie for dessert. While wearing a propeller beanie.
I hardly ever read in the paranormal genre, but I don't care, when it comes to KB Draper. She could write about vacuuming the lint out of her coat pockets, and I'd be riveted.
As a writer, let me say first, full disclosure: I am jealous. Jealous, that KB can pack so much wit into every sentence, and still manage to craft a compelling plot and characters you are forced to love. Jealous that she can write action scenes that have me white-knuckled and laughing. It's like being on a roller coaster, if you love roller coasters. I might have to kill her and steal her next unpublished manuscript. She hasn't been clacking the keys very long, but she writes like someone with 30 years' experience. She can turn a phrase like a chef with a spatula.
Contrarily, the creation of a book is hard for me. I spend a lot of time struggling to get it the way I want it. For KB it seems effortless. She has a natural talent for the craft. Her command of character voice is second to none. Her pacing is excellent enough to give you paper cuts if it was a paper book, but on an eReader, it's excellent enough to give you repetitive stress injuries in your swiping finger. Her character development and their endearment to a reader is spot-on.
Draper has a long, bright future as a kick-ass author. I hope she's got high powered sunglasses. The glare is going to be out of this world.
K.B. Draper does a really good job of putting her characters through hell without making me feel like the characters lost a part of themselves in the process.
I definitely have put this book in the would read again category.
