    In The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, Lizzie is about to visi

    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 universe) are not exactly known for their friendly behavior, and Lizzie and her gang are going to Las Vegas to save him and put an end to the succubi threat.

    This was a fun, action book that is not too heavy. Lizzie reminds me of a young Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Lizzie has got some skills and feels a certain weight of responsibility, but she has a great inner monlogue and and seems a bit down to earth. I can see myself hanging out with Lizzie. I can imagine that Lizzie is a bit more fun, since she has an entire gang of biker witches hanging out with her and helping her out. I think if Giles was not a nerdy librarian but a huge group of biker witches, some of Buffy's arcs may have gone a bit differently. Although all of the characters were described fairly well, I felt that Lizzie's character was the best written. My opinion is probably related to not reading the first book in which all of the characters were introduced and to the story being written from Lizzie's POV.

    This is an urban fantasy romance, so although demon slaying and saving the day are key to the story, there are some "sexy times" included in the book. They are excessive though, and if isn't your thing, you can quickly pass them over. If you are looking for a romance novel though, I would look elsewhere. Something that I really liked about this story is that Lizzie and Dimitri have a pretty serious conversation about their relationship! Lizzie had done something to Dimitri in the previous book that had some pretty serious consequences for him (trying to keep this spoiler free). Instead of hiding it from him, feeling guilty about it, and him discovering what she did on his own, Lizzie talks with him about it! Granted, it is towards the end of the book; however, they have an adult conversation about it. Yea for healthy communication!

    I have read a stack of urban fantasy books recently in which there is very little action until the very end of the book. This is not the case with The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers. In this book, there are action sequences throughout the book that were fun and exciting. I never found myself being bored in this book. The pace was nice and quick. My one complaint is that I felt that the final Big Bad fight ended a bit faster than I thought it would, but it did not hinder my enjoyment of the book.
