Demon slaying powers should come with an instruction book ...

Seriously. Why does a new hair dryer have a twelve-page how-to manual, but when it comes to ancient demon-fighting hocus-pocus, my biker witch granny gives me just half a dozen switch stars and a rah-rah speech? Oh, and a talking terrier, but that's another story. It's not like my job as a preschool teacher prepa

Confession: I love paranormal romance – the kick ass heroine who saves the day while being smart and sassy is totally part of why I started Cheeky Reads. In my mind's eye, I picture myself as the girl who can always give the sassy comeback to any quip. In real life? Well, let's just say I try really hard, but my sassy girl tendencies run more to the quirky and comedic.

Which might be why I can't resist paranormal romances that make me laugh out loud. Give me MaryJanice Davidson, Kim Harrison, Jud

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com.

I listened to the first book in this series on audio earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I thought it was fun and a great listen. I was very excited to be told that this book was to be released on audio as well. The narrator, Tavia Gilbert is perfect for this series. Now, I’m hoping that more will be released as well.

This book takes place not long after the ending of The Accidental Demon Slayer. LIzzie is startin

I absolutely loved the first book in this series – The Accidental Demon Slayer. Book 2, not quite so much.
Lizzie has accepted her talents and taken on the mantle of demon slayer – a very rare, inherited set of skills. She’s still riding with her Grandma’s biker witch gang, and her drool-worthy griffin shifter boyfriend, and this time she’s out to try and save Uncle Phil (her fairy godfather, quite literally) from the succubus who has her claws into him.
Only trouble is, Lizzie needs a permit fr

Lizzie is a beginner demon slayer, still trying to work out what she is doing. Uncle Phil has been seduced by a succubus and is being used as part of a plan for world domination and only Lizzie, the biker witch gang and her griffin boyfriend Dimitri can save the world. Add in a cute talking Jack Russell and you have your plot.

The best thing about the book is the biker witches who don't get enough exposure. I'd rather have read more about them than Dimitri and his sex obsession when more importa

I was hoping for more from this book. I liked the plot, most of the characters and the descriptions. Yet, it took me three times as long to finish it because a lot more things were preferable than sitting down and reading about Lizzie bitch about her circumstances. 1) In the last 30 years she has missed out on getting to know her Fairy Godfather Phil, who is also her Uncle. 2) She had to get a Demon Slayer's learner permit before she could go to Las Vegas to try and save Phil from a Succubus. 3) ...more

When I first came into the first book, The Accidental Demon Slayer, I was convinced (for some reason) that this would be like Buffy but with an older protagonist. In some ways it is--its humorous, with a female lead who is flying by the seat of her pants and has a support circle that helps to save her often, but in others its not.

In Book 2 Lizzie seems to have things a little more under control and has accepted (if not happily) her genetic birthright. Unfortunately life has a way of messing thin

This month I'm reviewing Angie Fox's paranormal romance The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers for Barrie Summy's Book Review Club.

Have you heard of the sophomore slump? For writers, this is what happens when you spend years working on your first novel: learning, preparing, plotting, drafting, revising, and workshopping. You submit it, it sells, and wham! you have a two book contract. Now what? You have to write the second novel in a matter of months. You've never done anything like that before; y

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

In The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, Lizzie is about to visit Las Vegas with her grandmother (a biker witch), her grandmother's biker gang of witches, her boyfriend Dimitri (a shape-shifting griffin), and her dog. At the end of the last book, Lizzie got word that her fairy godfather is about to marry a succubus. Succubi (at least in this u

This was a solid three an a half stars for me. This book had a lot going on. We start out with Lizzie trying to save her Fairy Godfather. While trying to get her Demon Slayer lisence (this whole part could have been left out in my opinion), she learns of a demonic invasion, stays in a magical hotel, has evil numbers appearing on her body, discovers a gateway to hell, all while trying not to have sex with her eye-color changing boyfriend so she can save the planet from the apocolypse.

This book was funny and kept moving at a good pace but I can't say I loved it. I did not read the first book in the series (and it did not feel like you had to) but I am not sure if that made a difference. Lizzie's grandmother cracked me up and I loved her dog, Pirate! Lizzie is one of those perfect good girls who has never gotten a ticket and not even an over due library book fine but she needs to learn how to kick some major butt fast as she tries to rescue her uncle from a succubi.

Must write a quickie since I should have written this one a week ago.

Plot:
Lizzy's uncle has been seduced by a succubus in Las Vegas and the gang set out to save him. But first she needs a demon slayer license and that will not be easy. And Dimitri sets out on his own. She has her hands full.


Characters:
Lizzy learned a whole lot of new tricks, Pirate was awesome, they found a new friend. Dimitri was rather elusive. The biker witches, oh they make this book. And the fairies were a nice touch to it.

I really enjoyed this book, it was a little wacky and different and was set in my home town of Las Vegas, where I still live – so it is always fun for me to see how out of towners see Las Vegas…….notice I did NOT call it Sin City – I really can’t stand that nickname. I was born and raised here, so think about it, would you like the city of your birth to be referred to as Sin City??

Why, oh why must Greek hunks seem more delightful in books than they are in reality? Angie Fox, you have delivered us a delicious book once again!

Does being in love with her writing voice make me a fangirl? Will my obsession over her characters and amazing jokes finally prove I'm a lunatic not to be trusted anywhere near a book with awesome fictional people - and pets? Probably... But for now:

The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers is the second book in a collection and, once again, I made the mistake to not check the first one, well, first.

However, the book is well written in the way that you don't really need to read the first to be able to analyse the second. It was a light, fun read, but little more than a tasty piece of marshmallow. It really left no lasting impression in me other than the main character was very forgetful.

What a cracker jack story! Great mystery, hilarious characters and hot romance between a beautiful demon slayer and her hunky Griffin shifter boyfriend! Not to mention her oh so helpful biker witch Granny and her coven who always accompany her on her demon chasing escapades. Toss in her talking Jack Russell terrier to the mix

This is the second book in Angie Fox's Biker Witches series and she continues to write a fast paced, clever and fun plot to read. In this book Lizzie has now accepted her powers and must learn how to become a demon slayer. She has no clue what she is supposed to do as a "demon slayer" and her grandmother believes in giving her advice depending upon the situation. I want to say that Lizzie was a little bit more whiny in this book than the first book; but I also forgave her as she is so frustrated ...more

Another great outing with our favorite demon slayer and her uproarious band of elderly biker witches. Oh and don't forget the hottie griffin boyfriend! Just as fun and as sexy as the first in the series. The stakes are higher this time and the action faster, more dramatic. As someone learning her skills on-the-fly, Lizzie has decided she should write a guidebook for other demon slayers and this materializes as a funny paragraph heading each chapter. The supernatural elements this time are succub ...more

Lizzie, Dmitri, Pirate (the lovable, talking Jack Russell) and the biker witches are back in the second book of the series. Phil, Lizzie's uncle and fairy godfather, is in danger from a succubus. The gang is ready to help him with one small problem: Lizzie doesn't have a demon slaying license.

I loved this book almost as much as the first one. My only issue is that Lizzie is determined to do everything herself. The result is seeing less of Pirate, Dmitri and the biker witches. I really would lov

In this story Lizzie needed to get a demon slayer license, save her fairy godfather, and stop succubi in Vegas from taking over the world. Her boyfriend turns out to be the favorite snack of the succubi but of course, this is only revealed after Dimitri has gone in on his own and evidently the witches had no knowledge of this fact.

I would have rated this 4 stars since, like the first, it made me smile while reading. However, the grammar issues in the first one continued into this and they were o

This is one of those books that I won't remember reading in a few months because it just doesn't stand out. The characters are not interesting and the plot was not exciting. I didn't read the first book so I felt like the story jumped right in with very little recap. The characters' motivations did not seem realistic, so much of the story felt uneven and jumpy.

I listened to the audio version and the narrator did an unmemorable reading. She wasn't bad, but I don't recall much that made her stand

Another funny book in this series about a very inexperienced demon slayer, who somehow manages to survive against all the odds.

In this one, Lizzie's fairy godfather, that she never knew she had, has gone missing in Las Vegas, sucked in by a succubus. Lizzie, of course, has to go and rescue him, but it's not quite as simple as that. Serena, the succubus, has more planned that just marrying a half fairy and Lizzie has to try and defeat her with her Demon Slayer's learner's permit! She takes along

This series must be read in order. The first book is The Accidental Demon Slayer. This is the second book.


Lizzie barely escaped the second layer of Hell with her soul intact a scant twon weeks ago and had to give Dimitri a part of her demon slayer essence just so he wouldn't up and die on her... Like that won't come back to bite her in the ass? Worst part is she has no clue how to tell him and it's eating her up inside. On top of that fun guilt tr
