Demon Hunting in the Deep SouthDemon Hunting in the Deep South by Lexi George

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I finished Demon Hunting In The Deep South and loved it, while it was not quite as hilarious as Demon Hunting In Dixie it may have been a better book as far as plot. I give both of them 4.5 Stars and the first book maybe higher since it caught me by surprise and had me almost rolling in the floor laughing. This book would have been better if we had more of the dog who I loved when referring to the vet as "the House of Pain" ....more

Fans of Kerrelyn Sparks and Molly Harper will devour Demon Hunting in the Deep South.
It had everything I love in a paranormal romance plus fantastic comedic relief.

Evie's character has had it rough. Mother died young, dad turned into a drunk, kids making fun of her weight through school and beyond; you'd be right in assuming she doesn't have the greatest self esteem. Now, don't get the wrong idea, she's not simpering in a dark room wailing about her life, but she's not having a great time either...more

3.5- Chaos, but fun- I wanted some good old Southern fun, nothing too serious and this was it. It was filled with crazy overblown Southern colloquialisms and overblown typecasts. Then to fracture the pacing there is the Demon Hunters use of formal or archaic language.( I had to stop and look-up a couple of words.) Reading this story was like being in a crazy tornado. There was so much going on and some many side players and they were all unique/weird.(Freaky) I went through such a gamut of feeli...more

Did not enjoy this nearly as much as the first book in the series. Still had the same quirky characters and I loved my brief glimpses of Addy & Brand and Dooley and Mr Fluffy (from the first book) as these characters were strong, funny and jump off the page. Evie and Blondy (we are going with Addy's name as I can't remember how to spell the hero's name) were fine as support characters in the first book but neither one was interesting enough for their own story. Basically this book was a repe...more

This is the second book in the Demon Hunting series which is set in the little town of Hannah where all sorts of strange things happen and the townsfolk are all hilarious and a little bit nuts.
Meet Evie a very shy woman who wouldn't say boo to a ghost she has caught the eye of very sexy demon hunter, Ansgar.
When Evie is charged with murder she did not commit she must find out who did the deed while dealing with her feelings for Ansgar and trying to build her confidence up.

Demon Hunting in the Deep South by Lexi George is an amazingly excellent read! Ms. George knows how to combine sassy southern humor, sizzling sensuality, paranormal intrigue and suspense into one intoxicating ball of storytelling bliss!

I had the pleasure of reading the first book in the Demon Hunting series titled Demon Hunting in Dixie and absolutely loved it. In that first story, readers lea...more

The premise is great, the characters interesting, the story keeps you going but .. although I went into this knowing it was humourous, sometimes I found it a bit too light. After reading the 1st book in the series I couldn't wait to get into the 2nd. Ansgar is just so serious and determined to stay away from the madness that affected Brand, you know he's going to fail but it's fun reading about his interactions with Evie. & I loved how Evie came out of her shell. Meredith is one of the most...more

Y'all have to read this book, it's side splittin funny. Tastier even then deep fried Twinkies.



I'll be posting a more involved review in a day or so... for now, just know that all y'all will die laughing with this story.

Demon Hunting in the Deep South is the second book in the Demon Hunting series. Like the first book, it was lots of fun to read. Sexy demon hunters, and the human females they can't get enough of, and vow to protect with their lives. The demons seem drawn to the small town of Hannah Alabama. As with most small southern towns, Hannah is filled with characters of all shapes and sizes. Along with the quirky humans, you have the demons, their "offspring" the demonoids, and some creatures that haven'...more

Review posted at Books to Brighten your Mood

Demon Hunting in the Deep South is one of those books I find it extremely hard to review from time to time. For different reasons in most cases, but difficult nonetheless. And it's so hard for my to rate and review this one because even though I knew that it was part of a series, I was under the impression that it could be read as a stand alone just as well. But that, was a mistake.

Let me explain. Demon Hunting in the Deep South, has a differe...more

Oh boy! What can I say about this book? It's fast, it's fun and it's funny!! I have no idea where Lexi George gets her humor but my hope is to one day meet her so i can find out what she's like in person. This book is loaded with sassy southern-isms. Some i have to admit i didn't fully get at first but that might be because I'm a northerner. The Demon hunters who are called the Dalvahni are hot sexy warrior men thousands of years old. They can't get drunk of liquor but crazy stupid on chocolate....more

This was a pretty interesting read for me. I’m from the south and found a certain familiarity with the sayings used in the book, as they are truly southern sayings! Things like bless your heart, son of a biscuit eater, and crappydoodle all remind me of home and they appear all over this book! It was awesome.

I also really liked how Ansgar and Brand (the demon hunters) spoke with a different cadence and structure. It really l...more

Even more fun than the last book.

In book one, Demon Hunting in Dixie, we are introduced to the shy and shapely Evangeline Douglass and the Dalvahni warrior, Ansgar. We watched the attraction between these two characters developing in the background of the first story and we also watched the shy Evie blossom into a confident woman. But circumstances at the end of DHiD, leave Evie with a case of memory loss. Since fraternizing with humans is unacceptable, our very by-the-book warrior, Ansgar, know...more

Warning: This is one of those books that keep you reading while you should be helping your kids with their homework, working, finding out what the new puppy is destroying, or listening to your husband talking about...something. Too bad! Because this is one of the funniest, wackiest and most romantic books I have read in a very long time. Lexi George has one of the strongest, and clearest voices writing today. Her writing is chock full of laugh-out-loud expressions and turns of phrase that add su...more

I gave it 3.5 stars

I seem to be doing this a lot lately but I read DEMON HUNTING IN THE DEEP SOUTH before realizing it was the second book of the Demon Hunting series. Honestly I had no clue, there were some instances where characters refereed to some stuff that might have happened in a previous installment but I was never lost and felt the the story as a stand alone was good.

Evie has amnesia when it comes to her past with Ansgar but you quickly realize that they were made for each other and ar...more

This just keeps getting better and better! Poor little, shy Evie was shot by an arrow and died. But a huge, silver eyed warrior gave her some of his essence to restore her to life and then leaving town and her life in shambles, with a bad case of "I can't remember". Hannah, Alabama is like demon central. And everyone in this Podunk little backwoods town is seeing some really strange things. One of them being the arrival of two of the hunkiest men on earth, warriors sent to battle the demons and...more

I received an ARC of Lexi’s George’s new paranormal romance via NetGalley. Demon Hunting in the Deep South was a lot of fun and it will have a lot of appeal for fans of the Sookie Stackhouse series. It should also be noted that this book is the second in a series, which I was not aware of when I requested it on NetGalley – I really wished I had read the first one, as I very much felt that I had missed important details necessary for Deep South.

Demon Hunting in the Deep South occurs relatively s...more

Evangline Douglass knows alot about demons, more than she really wants to know. Her best friend is about to marry a demon hunter and for some reason their small town of Hannah Alabama has became a hot-bed for demon activity. Evie is a shy woman who doesn't see herself in a very good light. When her high school nemesis,Meredith, is murdered in Evie's office and the murder wepon is found in her car, most everyone in town belives she killed her. They belive Evie wanted Meredith out of the way beca...more

Ok, I’m extremely late with this review, and I apologize, but I had a lot of family stuff going on, and I’ve just now, finally gotten time to finish it.

I have been working on getting this book read for almost 3 weeks now, since it first arrived in the mail, and I decided to take a day to finish it.

First, I’ve got to say, I loved it! But then, I knew I would, I have gotten pretty good at choosing books over the last couple months, and I, being somewhat of a southerner, knew this sort of thing w...more

I didn't quite enjoy this book as much as the first one...which I absolutely adored...but it was still a really good read. Plus, it seems like it was setting up the third book, which I would bet would feature the new Sheriff in town (fingers crossed...). And I'm super excited about that prospect.

I can't really blame the author because this book featured the less brassy friend, Evie...so maybe that's why it just wasn't as spunky and funny. Also, there wasn't as much animal props given in this bo...more

Although this couple "got together" in the first book, Demon Hunting in Dixie, Evie, the heroine doesn't remember Ansgar, the Hero. In order to save her from a body stealing demon, he had to shoot Evie with a "magical" arrow and bring her back from the dead. Ansgar, thinking that Evie would be better off without him, erases himself from her memory. Although she doesn't remember Ansgar, she has an overwhelming feeling that she is missing something in her life.

The book opens up with the murder of...more

Evie has always been everyone else's doormat. She's sweet and never has a mean thing to say even about those that are cruel to her. Then Ansgar comes to town. A demon hunting hottie and way out of her league. He thinks otherwise and is determined to show her that she's a beautiful and strong woman. Evie must battle her emotions and deal with the fact everyone in town thinks she killed someone. Except something much bigger is going on than a jealous wife haunting Evie. The demons want Evie and sh...more

Yes, this book is about Nicole, AKA Mullet Woman, the former pole dancer and more recently former gas station attendant who cannot be separated from her Allihuahua, Frodo. She has decided to bring her unconventional attire and mullet hairstyle to Hannah the birthplace of weird stuff. Poor Nicole has been chased out of town by a Chihuahua killer. Unfortunately, said Chihuahua killer has arrived in Han...more

Evie is a shy and self-conscious heroine who has been ridiculed by the "cool kids" since the 7th grade for being "fat." Those kids have grown up and are still ridiculing her, especially Meredith. Until Evie goes to work and finds Meredith gruesomely murdered in her office. And Evie is framed for it.

But Evie has a protector and advocate whom she doesn't know about. She doesn't remember him, and he remains invisible as he watches over her. Ansgar is a demon-hunter, a Dalvahni warrior with whom she...more

4.5 out of 5

I would like to first state that I jumped in without reading book one. Though I had no problem following the book and falling in love with the characters, I will be going back and reading book one. Mainly because I have to read Addy's story since I think she is my kinda heroine, but also because I believe you get insight on Evie and Ansgar's beginning.

Evie happened to show up at her office and find the nemesis, that made her life hell by picking on her, murdered. Not only that, but t...more

This was a 4-1/2* read for me and a bit better than the first book. I loved Evie who was quite the underdog heroine, full of self-doubt and insecurities. The woman who under-valued herself came into her own without losing her sweetness, good-nature, and vulnerability. While Ansgar, the H was likable, he was somewhat unremarkable to me. I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe he was too similar to Brand (the H in the first book).

The humor was hilarious with all the usual crazy talk, antics, and...more
Aislynn (Stitch Read Cook)
When Evie walked into her office that morning she didn’t expect to see the body of her nemesis Meredith draped across her desk. While Meredith tortured Evie most of her life, she is the last person anyone could see hurting another person. Nonetheless she is the prime suspect in the murder investigation!

While all this is happening, something unusual is happening to Evie. She feels like she’s being watched, like someone is looking over her shoulder all the time. Little does she know, she’s being ‘...more

This book was more than good and it would have gotten probably an higher score if I had read the novella that comes just before this one…yes Lexi George did write a novella but she put some allusions to it in this book and thus if you haven’t read it you have questions, and some details are annoying because you see you are missing something… I like novellas in a universe I love but I prefer when they are not a necessarily read,...more

I don’t even know where to start with this review because I don’t know how to describe this book at all. I really enjoyed the book but it was so strikingly different then anything I have read that my mind is boggled with how to write this.

The way in which the book is wrote is something between present and historical. Evie being present day and Ansgar being a old world demon hunter. His speech has a old flavor to it but his attempt at modern speech/slang often leads to funny comments from him as...more

Lexi grew up in South Alabama in a rural community with one flashing light and a small country store that sold everything from gas to pickled eggs. Her father, a circuit judge, collected clocks — chiming clocks that binged and banged all night long in rhythm with the trains that chugged and wailed down the railroad track not a hundred yards from Lexi’s girlhood home. Needless to say, Lexi is a ver...more
