Demon Hunting in Dixie is an engaging satirical romantic urban fantasy

In Hannah, Alabama florist Addy Corwin has a bit of a problem. A demon has branded her as his. Out of seemingly thin air, a hunk appears carrying a flaming sword. Brand the demon hunting Dalvahni rescues Addy and her dog Dooley.

Brand may be from another dimension...
In Hannah, Alabama florist Addy Corwin has a bit of a problem. A demon has branded her as his. Out of seemingly thin air, a hunk appears carrying a flaming sword. Brand the demon hunting Dalvahni rescues Addy and her dog Dooley.

Brand may be from another dimension, but he is not the only weirdness Addy encounters. Her dog is now a linguist and a cat streaks through the air. Furthermore the town has a horde of demons and other non-humans, none seemingly football fans. With Brand at her side and accompanied by her best friend Evie and his fellow warrior Ansgar. they begin cleaning the town of the ugly plague.

Demon Hunting in Dixie is an engaging satirical romantic urban fantasy that stars strong somewhat stereotypical lead protagonists and a solid support cast. The different mental wiring between an earth female and a Dalvahni male leads to humorous misunderstandings as the gap is much further than Men from Mars and Women from Venus. When the story line focuses on the romance or demon removal, the tale is at its best. Though there are too many subplots, fans will enjoy a visit to demon cleansing in Alabama

    Not bad

    It took me a while to get into this book because it is slightly silly and very fast paced to the point of confusing. However, once I got into it I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next one.

    Review originally posted on My Urban Fantasies.

    (myurbanfantasies.blogspot)

    Addy is out jogging one night with her dog, Dooley, when she comes to a cluster of trees, trees that Addy and Dooley have run by countless times before with no problems, and gets a serious case of the heebie jeebies. Of course that's the exact moment Dooley jerks the leash out of Addy's hand and takes off into the fore mentioned creepy clump of trees. Addy goes after Dooley and finds herself in a clearing with Dooley and a dark shadowy demon. A portal then opens and Brand, a Dalvahni warrior, steps through.

    Addy warns the hunky Dalvahni warrior, we are talking perfection personified here people, about the demon who is about to attack him. Brand turns to face the demon, who Addy refers to as Mr. Nasty, drawing a flaming sword. Mr. Nasty freaks and backs away from Brand. Now that Brand is distracted a second demon, loving named Mr. Nasty's sidekick, sneaks up behind Brand readying an attack. Addy warns Brand again. Brand turns and slays Mr. Nasty's sidekick. Mr. Nasty is seriously freaking out now and flees, stabbing Addy in the chest as it brushes past her. It's a death blow. Brand save Addy's life, forever changing it.

    The Dalvahni are an ancient race of warriors whose sole existence is to hunt the djegrali, aka demons. They do not experience emotions. If emotions start to arise the Dalvahni use thralls, think succubus but instead of eating someones life force they eat emotions, to ride themselves of it. The Dalvahni are also essentially immortal. Brand is ten thousand years old. The Dalvahni travel through different realms, through space and time hunting djegrali. This is how Brand ended up on Addy's doorstep, he had been tracking the wraith-like demon.

    If you are looking for a profound plot that moves your soul, then this is not the book for you. Demon Hunting in Dixie is hilarious book full of steamy sex scenes and southern charm. It shows that Lexi George truly was raised in a small town in the south, but the way she added southern stereotypes and clichés leads to a unique humor that is beyond brilliant. I absolutely love the fact that Addy fears her Mama more than demons.

    A fun read

    It's a quick, fun read. The southern slang and sexual innuendo get a little tiresome, but the story is funny, light, and sexy.
