Demon Envy

( 8 )

Overview

Being a teenager can be hell-especially when you're friends with someone who was born there.

Kenzie Sutcliffe woke up to another normal morning-until a demon popped up in her shower. While trying to get rid of a monster zit, she dropped her acne lotion in the tub. And when fifty bucks' worth of it swirled down the drain, it freed a demon from his prison portal. A mysteriously geeky-looking demon.

So now Kenzie is saddled with a creature who ...

Overview

Being a teenager can be hell-especially when you're friends with someone who was born there.

Kenzie Sutcliffe woke up to another normal morning-until a demon popped up in her shower. While trying to get rid of a monster zit, she dropped her acne lotion in the tub. And when fifty bucks' worth of it swirled down the drain, it freed a demon from his prison portal. A mysteriously geeky-looking demon.

So now Kenzie is saddled with a creature who looks and acts like every other guy she knows-that is, annoying. At least Levi has a job-if you can call it that. He has to stir up envy and jealousy in humans, or he starves. All he's tempting Kenzie to do is to crawl back into her bedroom and hide there forever. Because no one is going to be coveting her life after this.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
As if trying to figure out boys while fighting pimples is not difficult enough, Kenzie is faced with figuring out why her shower has become a portal to hell-well, not exactly hell. It is more like a prison for wayward demons. After Kenzie accidentally spills her acne-fighting lotion down the drain, Levi, a geeky, teenage-looking demon, emerges from Kenzie's shower. Now Levi is on the run from the prison and the guards that kept him there. He is going to show Kenzie a little something about life, school, her friends, and maybe he will get her on her way to getting her driver's license after two failed road tests-if the portal to hell does not continue expanding in Kenzie's bathroom. For a book loaded with teen characters and a demon to boot, the story just does not make it. The characters are dull and not fleshed out enough. They just do not take shape and it leaves the reader looking for the value in this title. The plot is drawn out and by the time the action comes, the reader has shut down. Kenzie's fight to close the portal is ill timed in the plot and makes the relatively short book drag. The reader is left to question why the author rushed to end the little bit of action the book offered. This title was a disappointing, anticlimactic read. Reviewer: Robbie L. Flowers

    This is one of the few books that actually make me laugh while I am reading it. Not many books have effects like that on me, but this book some how kept me laughing the whole way through. I hope there is a second. I loved how real the characters seemed to me. It was almost like I knew them as real people. I definatly would buy this book if I were you.

    Demon Envy

    Demon Envy was...interesting.
    I liked the plot, laughed alot, and enjoyed Kenzie's sarcasm and wit; it was just funny.
    Time to break this down: I did think that the main character (Kenzie) was a little bit winy, but that's what made her funny. I didn't so much enjoy how Levi got dumped in her life (zit cream...in a shower...? where's the logic there?) but he was pretty cool. I'm an excessive "Dude" user, so each time Levi said that, I smiled knowignly.
    If you like books that are quick--less than 200 pages--then I really think you will like this. The ending doesn't really leave you hanging, but it definitely makes you want to pick up the sequel--Speed Demon.

    Lotion meant for acne treatment is supposed to help remove those huge craters on your face, not open the portal to a whole other world.

Let's just hope that Kenzie can remove herself from all of this jealousy, which is what Levi feeds off of, and can successfully close that portal before more demons enter her life. <BR/><BR/>Hilariously funny and absolutely unique, DEMON ENVY makes demons look better than vampires. Move over Buffy because Kenzie Sutcliffe is the new girl in town, but she just doesn't really know what to do... yet. <BR/><BR/>DEMON ENVY just screams `READ ME' and readers will want more of Kenzie and her whiny ways -- and Levi and his jerky but caring attitude. Erin Lynn definitely knows what readers want, and let's hope she knows that what this reader wants is a sequel!

    Laugh Out Loud Funny

    Kenzie is a normal teenager ¿ envious of her friends and questioning her own self-worth. One day she accidentally opened a demon portal in her tub, and Levi, an envy demon, popped out. He performed some demon mojo on her parents and the school officials, now he is living with them indefinitely and his class schedule at school is ridiculously easy. Oh, and did I mention he starves if he doesn¿t feed off the envy of the people around him? Demon Envy is a great story, full of character, plot, a little romance, and loads of laughs. The characters are all colorfully described with traits everybody can relate to, whether you are a teen or an adult. Kenzie struggles with acne, her body, her relationships, her driving tests 'yes that is plural' as well as all the other angst teenagers have. Levi is your typical teenage boy, with a little more depth to him that we see as the story progresses. He definitely has the makings of an alpha hero! As a mom of teenagers, I really loved this book and recommend it for everybody ¿ from teenagers to adults. I hope to read more from Erin Lynn in the future.
