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.

Overview

New York Times bestselling series!

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 prepared me for this kind of thing.

So I've decided to write my own manual, The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, because no one tells me anything. Dimitri my "protector" may be one stud of a shape-shifting griffin, but he always thinks he can handle everything by himself. Only he's no match for the soul-stealing succubi taking over Las Vegas. If I can't figure out how to save him--and Sin City--there'll be hell to pay.

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 world. I enjoyed meeting several new paranormal creatures. The new setting in this book left the story wide open for some crazy adventures. The story flowed nicely and it was an easy, fun read. This book was full of excitement, but like the first one it had a dark side too. I was actually scared in some parts of the story. The cons...Hmmm, one of my favorite parts of these stories is the Biker Witch Gang and their antics. They didn't start flinging spell jars until the end of the book, I missed them. In conclusion, I really enjoyed this second book in the Accidental Slayer series. I can't wait to jump right into the next book in the series.

I read the first book, The Accidental Demon Slayer. It was a fun, easy read. I just loved the original characters. The biker grandma and gang is a hoot! The main character, Lizzie is so sweet and haphazordly funny! Her talking dog, "Pirate" the ever present side kick and companion and of course her love intrest Demetri, who is something else all together keep the story moving along and at quick pace! My only regret is that there is not yet the next book available! Get on it Angie! you have fans waiting!!

Though she has become a bit more at ease with her magical DNA heritage (see THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER), Lizzie still has problems adjusting to what is expected of her from her odd blood relative mentor as no one tells her anything. Just before turning thirty she was a Happy Hands Preschool teacher; at thirty she turned into a genetic demon slaying witch.---------------------- When Uncle Phil angers a succubus, her witch tattooed grandmother Gertie and her Red Skulls biker coven decide they must go to Las Vegas to rescue Phil; Lizzie has no choice as she is ordered to join the cavalry. Upon reaching Vegas, the Department of Intramagical Matters refuses to allow Lizzie to enter the city as she has no license to practice magic. To obtain a license, she must pass a test, but she has little experience and no training. On the bright side her shapeshifting griffin boyfriend Dimitri is accompanying Lizzie and Red Skulls; she might reconsider her joy if she understood that succubae love shapeshifters and there are a dirty dozen living in Vegas--------------- With a nod to The Greatest American Hero, the second hilarious Exalted Demon Slayer of Dalea urban fantasy is an amusing tale starring an unlikely demons slayer and a horde of eccentric characters either driving her crazy or trying to kill her. Lizzie is almost clueless re her talent, but courageously does her best as fighting deadly demons is safer than riding a Honda with her grandma. Filled with humor, fans will enjoy Angie Fox's lighthearted frolic as the Atlanta teacher takes Vegas; that is once she gets past the immigration rules for magical practitioners.----------- Harriet Klausner

The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers Audible version Listening to a book when you are not able to hold a book is just pure joy. That way you can get something done and get your reading in. This is the second book in “A Biker Witches Novel”. This is a great series. Lizzie is a Demon Slayer that has had no official training. Training is on the spot. In this one Lizzie and her crew is going to Las Vegas to save her uncle from a succubi. She also has to try to pass a demon slaying test with the Department of Intramagical Procedures in order to get her Demon Slayer permit. I really love this series. I received a copy of the audible version for an honest review.

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 because there is no one to train her to be a demon slayer but everyone expects her to slay every demon that she meets. All of her support system is with her for this adventure in Las Vegas - her grandmother and her coven of biker witches, her Jack Russell terrier, Pirate and Dimitri, her shape-shifting griffin boyfriend/protector. Plus we meet some new characters like her fairy godfather/uncle Phil and Max, a demon hunter. Lizzie and Dimitri's relationship was tested in this book. Dimitri tries to "protect" Lizzie by going ahead of her to Las Vegas to handle the succubi invasion himself; but this is a battle that he can't win alone. Apparently, succubi love griffin energy and he is being sucked dry. We see Dimitri behaving secretive, lying, disappearing and feeding on Lizzie's energy (without her permission) because of the succubi feeding off of him. Lizzie and Dimitri are also having a power struggle during this adventure because each one is trying to protect the other from the succubi. Don't get me wrong, they are still a very hot couple; but through the first part of the book, it seemed to be more about sex and energy needs than about a "love" relationship. However, it did move back in a more positive note toward the end of the book. The plot was darker in this book than in the first book; but Lizzie needed the problems, the hurt, anger and frustration in order to grow and accept this new side of herself. I am looking forward to continuing this series to see how Lizzie and the biker witches are doing in the future. Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by NetGalley and Season Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

A wonderful story with gargoyles, a lot of demons, she-demons, succubis and other supernatural beings. And not forget the handsome griffin Dimitri! Lizzie has a new "assignment" - she must rescue her fairy godfather from the claws of a succubi. This succubi is trying to bring a lot of other she-demons from Hell, with the intention of destroying humankind. Travelling to Las Vegas with Dimitri, Lizzie's mission is full of dangers. What I enjoyed the most were the scenes with Lizzie and Dimitri, they are a wonderful couple. Also Pirate, he's so adorable! This was a great book, it gave me big pleasure reading it, knowing better the characters I knew from the previous book and I'm anxious to read the next one.

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.

I definitely wish I’d come across this series earlier, given this is a re-release, the author taking it the self-published route. Not that there’s a problem with self-pubbing. I think it’s awesome. I’m just grumpy ’cause I missed out on something so awesome for so long. The great sense of humor displayed in the first book of this series, which I didn’t review (for whatever reason and I know I’ve read it), along with one of the most recent, My Big Fat Demon-Slayer Wedding reviewed HERE was on blatant display once again. This is the second in the Demon-Slayer series and we learn ever more about the world poor Lizzie found herself sucked into, except there are even more problems than a demon coming through her toilet. No, her fairy godfather is being seduced and used by a succubus in Las Vegas, who is one among many trying to do something very very nasty to the world. So, Lizzie, her grandmother’s Biker Witch Gang, and sexy griffin Dimitri are off to Las Vegas to save the day once again. Along the way, Lizzie gets cited for practicing demon slaying without a license and has to either get her license or face prosecution (and possibly much nastier things). The magic license place is exactly like your average DMV, but with all sorts of magical critters. I loved the stern examiner and how Lizzie just keeps dealing with everything that’s thrown at her. Once she’s granted a provisional permit, it’s off to Las Vegas for the gang. The plot really starts cooking along in Sin City and we get a look at just why hotels don’t have a 13th floor, along with seeing some pretty icky succubi in their true forms, along with more magical creatures. Lizzie is awesome as she tries to balance who she is with the powers she’s learning about. Dimitri is missing for part of the book, but incredibly susceptible to the succubi, so that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The ending was awesome and I liked how Ms. Fox wrapped up all of the individual plotlines (while leaving the series plots open, including the Dimitri/Lizzie hook-up). I love this series so much and can’t wait for another one! Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Four stars for Angie Fox's re-released The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, a hilarious and fun read. Angie Fox's Demon Slayer series was one of the first that I read electronically and I have to admit a great deal of fondness for it. That said, I was really happy to see that Season Publishing has re-released book two, The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, in a new e-version. What's not to love about Lizzie, the Harley riding preschool teacher, terrier mom, gryphon lover, who just also happens to be a demon slayer? When she and her biker grandmother, assorted witches, and her succubus magnet boyfriend descend on Vegas to rescue her real fairy godfather, who happens to also be her maternal uncle. All hell tries to break loose. This is a fun, light-hearted read. And if you find yourself chuckling at the antics of all the characters, well, I think the author hit her mark. I have to say that I re-read most of the series (I admit to skimming one or two of the books) and enjoyed them quite a bit. I can't say that this is my all-time favorite read, but it's certainly fun. If you don't already have an e-version of The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, make sure to order yours today. [I received an ARC from NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review.]
