Firstly, I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you've been following me, you know that matters not a whit. I am under NO obligation to like anything, even if it's free.

So now we have that out of the way:

She Who Fights Monsters is the kind of paranormal that, given my total burnout of the genre, should have had me saying "no thanks". Angels, demons, slayers--been there, done that, got the hoodie. Granted, the fact that the heroine--Jordan Amador--is an

I cannot get enough of this series and was burning the midnight oil in order to finish both She Who Fights Monsters and The Holy Dark.


Like previous episodes, She Who Fights Monsters is laced with humorous banter that breaks up this dark action packed read. References and/or quotes from popular TV shows, movies, songs and/or music groups make The Black Parade series more interesting, relatable, and provide the reader with a profound understanding of where the character is com

Each of these books seem to get better. This time around, we are standing with Jordan and Michael on their quest to figure out who is murdering Seers. Also strangely enough someone from Jordan's path appears and throws a kink in Jordan's personal journey. Throw in the love triangle with Belial and you have yourself a thrilling sequel.

As you know, I despise love triangles, but Kyoko makes it work for this series. The excitement and tension between characters has increased ten-fold that you can't

That ending is gonna stick with me for awhile. So sad!

I started slow and steady. Admittedly, I found myself easily distracted at times but it was worth continuing to read since I like the story and the characters

She Who Fights Monsters reminds readers that inner demons can plunder through dreams and relationships just as well as any beast from hell. To be perfectly fair, it is hard for any girl to fight monsters when the cucuy (boogie-man) under the bed is sexy, seductive, and willing to tag team for both husband and wife on their wedding night!

Kyoko M. has done it again. She sucked me in with the first book in the series, The Black Parade, and hasn’t let me go through the end of She Who Fights Monsters. I am so wrapped up in this story it’s not funny. There are very, very few books about Angels or Demons out there that I can say without a doubt that I enjoy, and I am glad to say this is one that I more than enjoyed, I love it!

We continue the story of the Seer Jordan and the Archangel Michael as they continue to fight not only hell’s

It is a common occurrence in my opinion that sequels do not always live up to the original or outshine. However I really enjoyed She Who Fights Monsters and would ardently argue it is a fantastic read and as good as the first in the series.

Despite being in a relationship with Michael, Jordan retains her individuality and continues to entertain with her witty humour and observations. This book sees Jordan struggling to maintain her relationship with Michael whilst Belial constantly tries to seduc

This is the second book in "The Black Parade" series.

One of the things I like about this series is that Michael and Jordan are now married. The author did not spend the entire series getting the two romantic leads together.

This book starts with Michael (the Arcangel) and Jordan happy together. They are married now and very much in love.

Their enemy from the first book; Belial (the demon) is nowhere to be found and Jordan and Michael have had a year without an

Even better than the first book! Absolutely loved it! Spent the entire day reading it, then the night finishing the last book (The Holy Dark)!
Drama, Fight scenes (!!!), A (proper) Plot, A dash of Romance, Smatterings of humor! Writing that isn’t a cringe-worthy, immediate DNF smash of telling and not showing, for once? All so very lovely! No grammatical or technical errors that I could spot, aka none overt.
I’m not a huge crazy fan of the whole Angel/Demon Paranormal (Is it paranormal? I mean who

She Who Fights Monsters, Book Two, The Black Parade Series
By Kyoko M

The book opens with a murder, and a murderer with a mission. The opening scene is well done, not gruesome, but certainly descriptive and intriguing.

In this book, Jordan Amador is still beset by hard choices concerning good and evil and her soul. The major players remain: Jordan, Gabriel, Michael and Belial.

Though the writer is dealing with archangels and demons, she makes them feel real, like the guy next door--both the creep

I have read many paranormal books, with variety of characters. The heroine in the book is strong and selfless. However, she is also suffering from low self-esteem and depression. She makes a decision in this book that alienates from her family, and although she had good intentions she was in the wrong. Baiel plays an unique demon. The author makes you feel what Jordan is feeling toward him and you see what she does in him. I find the first book in a kindle unlimited book that had several di

She Who Fights Monsters is a quirky little urban fantasy, that has a lot of charm. Sitting somewhere between YA fiction and adult fantasy, it has a unique approach to the "girl-falls-for-mystical-superhuman" genre.

The main characters, Jordan and Michael, are quite likable. And, luckily, Jordan is about as far from the "damsel in distress" as you can get. She battles the forces of evil with the help of her archangel husband [I know, I know…but that's why it's called FANTASY], and usually she doe

She Who fights Monsters

Kyoko M does it again with a beautiful blend of biblical mythology and the ever present good vs evil theme. She Who Fights Monsters depicts Michael and Jordan's struggle with not just their relationship, but also their inherent need to save the world without regard for personal cost.

Like many books in a trilogy, this book did feel a bit like a transition piece. While the conflict presented in the book was resolved, like many second novels, the reader was left with more q

The second book in this series was better than the first. I don't know if I can put into words how much I love these characters. I found myself on a roller-coaster ride of emotions with this whole series and this book was no different. It will make you laugh and cry and you'll get mad and be disappointed but it's worth it. For years I've been saying how Dr Phil is a hell spawn and I'm very glad I'm not the only one who thinks it! I was glad to see there will be another book but sad that it will ...more

This was a fantastic book that kept me reading non stop from beginning to end. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

This was a good book. Lots of action. A strong but bull-headed female lead. I enjoyed the new twist on angels. It slowed down in some parts. But for the most part it was a really good read that I enjoyed.
