I had a really awesome weekend because of this book that gave me 404 pages of pure laughter and I’m really grateful to the awesome mother and daughter (A&E Kirk) authors and to my lovely friends, Ash and M short for Melissa (Ever so Mela) whose reviews convinced me to read the book. (Click their names for their reviews.) Actually, M kind of harassed me into reading the book and I’m ever thankful. Lol. I mean, who would not be? Six equally non-cheesy, hot heroes with equally impressive magica ...more
Here's the first chapter...
Someone’s car was totaled and it wasn’t my fault.
But who’s going to believe a teenager? “The demon did it” excuse, while more creative than “the dog ate my homework,” was still as unbelievable. And much more likely to get me sent to the psych ward. So when the fang-filled flying hellion barely missed me and dropped like a wrecking ball onto the SUV, exploding shattered bits of glas ...more
Demons at Deadnight offered a great introduction to a series, with such an interesting premise-- featuring demons and demon hunters. This book started out really, really good. And it has tons of crazy humor that got me really cracking out loud. I love the main character Aurora Lahey who is all kinds of ...more
Three things you will absolutely love in this book:
1) It is completely hilarious
2) It is completely action - packed and
3) It is completely awesome!
The one thing I love about books is that it has the ability to think and make you laugh. This book made me laugh so hard that sometimes I'd keep reading the same joke again and again just to continue my laughter.
Aurora Lahey proved to be an excellent female lead whom I loved very much.

This is a story of a 17 year old girl,named Aurora Lahey who has recently moved back to the town she grew up in(together with her family).It's here when all the "demon-chasing Aurora" had began. Yes,our one and only female pr ...more
Holy crap, this book was fun. Okay: imagine, if you will, the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only they're teenagers, and they aren't vampires, and they don't have 400 pages each worth of angst-driven back story, and they're written with a Goonies-like combination of charm and goofiness--but instead of bikes and baby fat, they have cars and chiseled abs. Those are the Hex Boys, a crew of six demon-hunters who each have a unique supernatural ...more
The story was told in Aurora Lahey's POV and it started in an intriguing way. There weren't many descriptions about settings, people, or anything special in the first few pages; instead, Aurora jumped into chaos and brought the readers with her. Best part was that she met her
Prince Charming Hex Knight, Ayden Ishida, really soon after that. Plus, like I mentioned before, I literally choked on my own laughter from the first chapter. It was aweso

Okay... I stopped for a snack for a minute. I'm back.
So, we have Aurora, our special snowflake. She can see demons and has spent all of her teen years running away from them. She was attacked badly, by humans, and he ...more
“Her dad’s coming,” she said, voice shrill.
“What?” we all said in unison.
Tristan, Ayden and the fairy looked at me and said, “What?”
“What?” I repeated, panicked and irritated at my lack of control in responding to a fairy I wasn’t supposed to see or hear.
“What?” came their reply.
“What?” I continued the theme of repetition because I lacked any form of explanation.
Ayden held up a hand for silence. “Why are you ‘whatting’?”
The hand again. “Okay, stop that,” Ayden said.”

This book started off really good, with the first scene opening with action and being hilarious, with a very enjoyable lead character. But unfortunately, the rest of the book didn’t do it for me as much as the beginning did.
The plot :
First, I thought the story was quite slow and that there was basically nothing much happening during the entire book. I felt like we were constantly going round and round in circles, me getting very frustrating at some point, even more so because ...more
Still loving it. Such an amazing series, and Ayden is so damn hot!
New rate: 5/4 stars.
My casting (Though, perhaps, should be looking a bit younger and Ayden & Jayden are twins, though can't choose how they look..):
This book is still freaking fantastic!! I love the Hex boys even more!!! And dude, if you haven't read this book, then your seriously missing out on something amazing!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, PEOPLE!
This was just what i needed!! Im pretty s ...more
Let’s start with the main character, Aurora, aka Divinicus Nex. She’s snarky, quirky, funny and can see demons. She knows when to talk shit, when to keep her mouth shut, when to fight and when to run for the frigging ...more
Full Review (Updated 2/7/2012):
Snarky, fast and furious, Demons at Deadnight by A & E Kirk is fast paced and hilarious, providing an epically fantastic read and and seriou ...more
Este libro es eso. Me costó más de doscientas páginas para acostumbrarme a esa prosa extraña. Lo leí en un documento protegido (seh, lo que hace la pobreza) así que no pude copiar algunas de las frases/situaciones que más me molestaron.
La verdad es que me di cuenta de que este libro no fue hecho para mí.
Yes, I know you wish you were me at this moment. Don't worry, it's OK to dream big. :D
On with the review...
Reasons I read this book:
1)Anna: She kept gushing about it. I basically saw it, for a week straight, on my goodreads update.
2) The Cover : Yeah, I know. It's lead me astray sooo many times but I am nothing if not habit bound.
3) The Hex boys : What? I like to have ch ...more
I was really excited to read Demons at Deadnight by A&E Kirk, 'cause words like hilarious/funny/witty were in every review and well, I wanted to read something hilarious/funny/witty. So I didn't read an annotation to give myself no hints about this book. And I made the right decision

Incredibly funny inner voice, hilarious dialogues, tons of lovable characters stuffed with personality and wit, captivating suspense and well-wrought mystery.

What? It's irritating when the monster hunting you has a better vocabulary than your own. Maybe it could do my eulogy?”
It's bad enough getting chased by demons. But demons with exceptional vocabularies? That just burns.
Aurora's been chased by demons, ever since her near-fatal accident. Why do they chase her? She doesn't know. All she knows is that they're ...more

^^^ This is honestly what I'm like right now, minus the beard, I can't believe it was that good!!!!
I'm not doing to lie, I wasn't expecting much from this book, I read it more out of boredom than an actual need to read it but boy am I glad I am. I can say with all honesty, hand on heart, that there was not a single part of this book I didn't love with everything that I am!!!!!
Hex Boys, I need you all!!!! Right here, right now!!!!!!! I don't care which one of you, you all hold my heart!!! I neve ...more

You know those time when you can fall back, jump out of reality and into another real world?
This was that kind of book.
But instead we jumped in Aurora's world of demons, kicking butt or in her case, falling on butt and getting back up again.
She had hilarious comebacks and such a realistic persona, she certainly disproved those other reviews who view Aurora as "naive" or a failed attempt at creating and developing a heroine. Can I just say the character development for her, and the

"Oh. My. God," Luna blurted from Ayden's back seat. "It's a love triangle."
We all looked at her like she'd sprouted an alien from her head. "it's just like in a book. Two guys after one girl and-"
I groaned. "That's ridiculous, Luna, this is not a love triangle."
"Says the girl in the middle of a love triangle. Luna ignored my protests and prattled on. "Not one Hexy Boy but two. I've got to call Danica. Oooo," she squealed and clapped her hands,"We could have teams. Team Ayden and Team Blake. With T-shirt and buttons and-"
"I could make a website," Lucian offered.
"No!" My voice pitched with panic. "No teams. No shirts. No-"
"I'll get you some headshots," Blake said, turning his profile towards Luna and Lucian. "I've been told the left is my best side. What do you think?"
"Aurora's right," Ayden said. "This is buts. Blake you can follow us-"
"Dude, you know no one would pick Team Ayden. You're just jealous."
"That's not true. My team would be way bigger than yours."
"Dare to dream, little man, dare to dream."
"Care to make a wager on it?"
"Fine. How about-"
"You two shut up!" I shoved myself out of the car.”
