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...more

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...more

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...more

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...more

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...more

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...more

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. I don't kno...more

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. Then she f...more

This is the second book in the series but can be read as a standalone. I found this book to be quite wonderful. The story line kept me hooked and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

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??

The story is about Lizzie Brown, who recently fo...more

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:

(ARC from NetGalley for honest review)

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.

This book has a very...more

Adiós a la saga. Abandono. Lo dejo. Me aburre, me cansa, me tengo que obligar a acabar los libros.... Se acabó.

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

Maybe I should have read book1 first! But I wasn't completely lost, so you can definitely read this one without the other. I don't know about the rest of the books in the series though, I will be getting to those in the future. This is a series I do want to continue to read, plus I have been wanting to read this series for a long time.
Lizzie is learning as she goes. She just recently found out she is a demon-slayer, and just found her birth grandmother-she was adopted. Grandma is a biker witch,...more

I have to admit you will smile through this book because it's so silly but.....it works!!! Angie Fox is creative, g rated with a little bit of rated R stuff but it's a cute, different concept type book and you enjoy it. It's not one of my read over and over again but she is a quick read. Hot boyfriend named Demitri and one Lizzie demon slayer with a talking dog, trying to save her fairy godfather Phil from succubus and demons attempting to break through and then throw in a crazy team of biker wi...more
Elisabeth
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...more

This series must be read in order. The first book is The Accidental Demon Slayer, An Urban Fantasy Romance (Biker Witches Mystery Book 1). 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...more

The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers is the second book in the Demon Slayer series.

Lizzie has to travel to Vegas to stop a succubus with plans to unleash Armageddon on earth. Along to help her is a coven of biker witches, her griffin boyfriend, and her dog - Pirate. She's also decided to write a handbook for demon slayers while doing this.

This was a fun read with good characters a fun plot line and lots of action.

I enjoyed the continuing development of the relationships with her granny, her new...more

Originally reviewed at For Your Literary Pleasure

The premise for this book is promising but it doesn't quite deliver. It has all the parts for a great book yet the slapstick humour doesn't resound. Fox writes similarly to Janet Evanovich which is a positive but maybe I've grown sick of it. Lizzie is a well meaning character but to me she came across as disorganised and self centered. Demtri seems like a great guy for the few moments he appears but otherwise is significantly absent. I admit I've...more

This book was another fun read that followed Lizzie on her adventures in Demon Slaying. It was still the same silly gang, complete with biker grannies and talking dogs. I'm not really sure that I liked this one as much as the first book, but it was close.

We get to see a very controlling yet still sizzling hot Dimitri, although not nearly enough of him. Lizzie gets stuck in this spiral of "I don't need anyone!", then "I need help!", then back to "I don't need anyone!", etc etc. One of my pet pee...more

I still really like this series, but have to agree with a couple of other readers, it wasn't as good as the first one. Lizzie is a bit more annoying in this one. I still like her and I also get why she can be frustrated given there is no one to really teach her how to be the slayer yet be expected to slay every demon she meets. Not fair!

For the highlights:
Lizzie does not get to go to Greece with Dimitri. Instead, she has to head to Vegas to save an uncle she did not even know she had. Surprisin...more

My thoughts...Book 2 of Angie Fox's Demon Slaying series takes readers on a magical tour of Sin City. This time she is up against a Succubus who has stolen her Fairy Godfather. All of my favorite characters were there including The Biker Witch gang, Dimitri and little Pirate. I saw a different side of Dimitri in this book, he was very vulnerable. Lizzy definitely grew into her black slayer books and her powers.

The plot was fun, and it taught the readers more about the mysteries of Fox's magical...more

This was a pretty good book. I've recently gotten into PR & UF books and I'm finding that I'm liking them.

The story is about Lizzie Brown, who recently found out she was a demon slayer. Lizzie has to travel to Vegas to stop a succubus with plans to unleash Armageddon on earth. Along to help her is a coven of biker witches, her griffin boyfriend, and her dog - Pirate.

I really liked the writing in this one. The author is able to write conversations in a relevant way. The characters speech is...more

Lizzie is back in this sequel and it seems she has chosen to embrace her calling and truly become a full-time demon slayer. As the story commences, Lizzie is in quite a bind - firstly, she is fined by the DIP (Department of Intramagical Procedures) for all the ruckus that the first book entailed (The Accidental Demon Slayer). And secondly, she is informed that her uncle has "shacked up" with none other than a demon in Las Vegas. On a permit (no license - since she failed her demon-slaying test a...more

Lizzie Brown was just your average (if not slighlty OCD) preschool teacher until her 30th birthday when she found out she was a demon slayer. Since then nothing has been the same. Her sweet hyperactive Jack Russel terrier is now talking to her (or as he says she can finally understand him), her long lost grandmother is a biker witch with a coven of crazy witches at her side and Dimitri who is her "protector" (and love interest) just happens to be a shape shifting griffin.

This time Lizzie and th...more
Laurie: Almost Faemous
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. When I requested this book for review I didn't realize it was the second book in a series so I started off with book one before reading this one. While you could read it stand alone it did make a lot more sense after reading book one.

The series is kinda weird for me, I like the world it is set in, I like the minor characters but I cannot stand the main character. I love the Red Skulls; a biker witch coven riding around...more

This one is going to be short and to the point. Yay!

The second novel in the Demon Slayer series was true to form. It picked up where the first one left off and kept up the campy feel.

While I did enjoy it, it felt like it was dragging a bit. I thought Dimitri would have played a bigger role in the book, but it seemed this one was more about Lizzie coming into her own in the supernatural world. Although, in the end she needed help to do so.

Like I said, I did enjoy it....more

You know what? This was a good solid 3 stars. I enjoyed it. It was a refreshing change from the last couple of books I read in that it didn't feel like a total life suck.

I read the first book in this series about a year ago and liked it. Not enough to rush right out and buy the next book but enough that I remembered what happened. (Honestly, I often forget a book's plot five minutes after I finish reading.)

This series is pretty much what I recalled. It's not groundbreaking. There not much new h...more
