Overview

New York Times bestselling series!

It's never a good day when an ancient demon shows up on your toilet bowl. For Lizzie Brown, that's just the beginning. Soon her hyperactive terrier starts talking, and her long-lost biker witch Grandma is hurling Smuckers jars filled with magic. Just when she thinks she's seen it all, Lizzie learns she's a demon slayer--and all hell is after her.

Of course, that's not the only thing after her. Dimitri Kallinikos, a devastatingly handsome shape-shifting griffin, needs Lizzie to slay a demon of his own. But how do you talk a girl you've never met into going straight to the underworld? Lie. And if that doesn't work how dangerous could a little seduction be...?

So, after reading many positive reviews, I took the bait and got book 1 in this series. I love books with witty, grown-up banter, with characters who are interesting and layered and with a storyline that is new with a different twist. This, luckily, fits all of those categories and more. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Although there are many specifics I could mention, it is much better to just read for yourself. You won't be disappointed. This is pure escape. And I'd definitely read again. For now, I'm on to book 2. I am anxious to see where this story will lead.

One of the funniest books I¿ve read this year. I loved this book. Lizzie Brown is leading a normal, predictable, boring life until the eve of her 30th b-day. When one knock on her door changes her world forever! A grandma she didn¿t know she had burst into her life immediately casting protection spells from an old smuckers jar, now filled w/ magic and various road kill organs. Only this is no ordinary grandma. No, she¿s a witch who rides a pink Harley and belongs to a coven with other elderly Harley-riding witches, known as the Red Skulls. Lizzie is informed that she is a demon slayer and thus her journey begins. This whole book was a hoot. Between the trailer park hideouts, imps on a death quest, pulling a dozen of black souls out of werewolves, and journeying to hell, the excitement never stops. From start to finish this book was hilarious and I look forward to book two due out in April 2009. I highly recommend this book.

My favorite authors and books are Kim Harrison-Rachel Morgan series, Jenna Black-Morgan Kingsley series what an innovative concept, Ilona Andrews- Kate Daniels series this character is tough tough tough, Caitlin Kittredge- love her Noctune City series, Rachel Caine- Weather Warden series, Larissa Ione- Demonica series, Richelle Mead- Georgina Kinkaid series and Dark Swan Series, Audra and Stella Price- Eververse series, Yasmine Galenorn- Sisters of the Moon series, Vicki Pettersson- Zodiac series; Jackie Keller- Hell on Earth series, T.A. Pratt- Marla Mason series; Mark Henry- Happy Hour of the Damned

This book is funny and just an enjoyable read, I was a little cynical and was expecting to groan aloud about cliches but surprisingly I found myself laughing out loud and smiling throughout the entire book. My mother also enjoyed it and she rarely ever reads fiction.

In her first of the series, Angie Fox gives us Lizzy who on her 30th birthday finds out the hard way that what she carries in her DNA is a Demon Slayer. This book was a humorous look at some scary situations involving some pretty dastardly characters from the demon realm. The author is a genius with her dialogue and her storytelling is unmatched. Her characters are charming and sexy and scary. There is an underlying love story with a sexy griffon, but that in no way takes away from the story only adds to it. The plot is so unique and original that it's obvious she didn't copy from the many, many other paranormals out there. I would recommend this book to any one who loves a great paranormal read.

A light read, lots of action, likeable characters, and a hot love interest...all I need for a cozy afternoon cuddling with my cats. I'll probably get the next book in the series soon!

The female lead whines and rambles making it hard to follow the story. I couldn't really get into the characters. Actions scenes were kinda lame.

This story was well written, but like some of the other reviewers I found myself skim reading most of the book. I think maybe there wasn't enough character back story and development and without it I just couldn't sink into it and invest in the story. I found myself reading not because I cared about the characters or how their relationship finished, but just to see how the plot ended. So with that being said it's free give it a shot it might be a great book for you! It just wasn't for me.

3.5 Stars from me! While I do enjoy funny stories, you know the ones I’m talking about, the ones where you can’t stop laughing while you read reading them. You will have tears running down your face because you are laughing so hard, those types of stories. There is that line that is there, the one where the author can pass the line between being hilarious, and being way too much funny. That is the case with this book. I did enjoy reading it because there were some parts of it that were just hilariously funny and I didn’t want to put the book down because I wanted to find the next funny part. But that’s the only reason why I was reading it at the time, was because I wanted to know the next smartalec thing that was going to be said. I didn’t get lost in the story itself like I normally do with books, I got lost in the funny. Now this story does have some “serious” undertones, when it comes to demons and the rings of hell of course it’s serious time. I was upset that there wasn’t more in the training part of the story, as well as what hell was like. Lizzie’s character didn’t seem like she was that different than other characters out there. Besides the fact that she was a demon slayer, she didn’t stand out in any sense to me. But if you are looking for a great funny read, than this is the book for you to check out!

I agree with the other reviewer who said something was lacking but could not figure out exactly what that is. It was entertaining but could not get totally into it. Somethings needed to be explained more like her powers and how they worked. But its free so if you have the time...

The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox 3.5 stars Great comedy and characters, lost a half-star for a rushed romance Sometimes, Amazon’s ‘Freebie” program turns up a jewel. And with The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox, I am thrilled to say I wound up with a ruby. Hey, I like rubies better than diamonds, so sue me! Come on, who wouldn’t be thrilled to have a kick-butt, 70-something, pink-Harley-riding grandma show up on your doorstep on your 30th birthday to help you kick demon backside? Well, if you happen to be the ‘turning-thirty-preschool-teacher” hiding in the bathroom from said grandma, things can get a bit confusing, but come on. A Pink Harley? Got to love it! And the action only starts there. Strap your hyperactive Jack Russell into a ferret bag across your chest, hop on the back of Grandma’s Hog, (even if you do get carsick in anything faster than a tricycle) and take off for the Red Skull Hog Ridin’ Grannies biker bar, with demons in pursuit. What happens after had me grinning like a crazed biker granny myself, as Lizzie and Grandma kick fanny and take names across the American South – and a good portion of Hell. This is the first time I had heard of Angie Fox, and I am thrilled to say it won’t be the last of her books that I intend to roll around in like a dog in road kill (hey, you will get the reference when you read the book – and DO read the book!) Her whole Accidental Demon Slayer series (two three-volume sets) is already on my Nook and set up to read. I also grabbed the first in her Monster Mash series (the 3063rd M.A.S.H. unit, location – limbo). Angie has a wicked sense of humour, a brilliant touch with her characters, and her writing shows great pace and timing. In Accidental there is, of course, a ‘love interest’, and as usual said romantic twist rolls forward much too quickly for reality, but I have given up on the idea that any book with romance included as part of the plot isn’t going to include rolling around in the sack and declaring undying love within the first two days of meeting. Meh. At least in Angie’s book, Lizzie isn’t totally spineless. She stands up to betrayal and kicks it in the cohones. And the betrayer, too. So, no harm, no foul as they say. I admit, I had to laugh at some of the low-star reviews. Come on, people! This is fantasy!!! I think that, sometimes, people get so wrapped up in their expectations, whether they be expectations of “realism” or expectations based upon what other writers do (“familiars” and whatnot) that they can’t just sit back, relax, and enjoy something new. It seems that some people wanted formula – shapeshifters shifting every two seconds, ‘my dog is my familiar’, I just suddenly know how to do everything magical even though my life has been totally mundane forever. Puh. Get over it, sit down, and read the book for what it is, a comedy that takes the old formulas and turns them on their head. Get over it! Overall, Angie goes in my ‘must read when I am reading just for myself’ pile. She made me laugh, and her story was a pure, guilty pleasure. What more can I ask? Recommended.

The book had a few funny parts but was otherwise hard to get through. I found my self skimming instead of reading just to get it over with. The same goes for the rest of the series.

I guess if you like really silly/bad supernatural stories with woman falling about over Fabio like men, this is your book. I've read one other book by this author and that seems to be get style. I'll give it uniqueness points for having witches in a biker coven with names like Ant Eater.
