She's finally managed to summon her first demon...

Dora Carridine is trying to summon a demon, but she's not very good at Latin and nothing ever works out the way she plans.

Her life is fraught with weekly exorcisms and having to watch her father’s fire and brimstone TV show every Sunday. So when Dora finally succeeds in summoning an incompetent demon lord, she’s absolutely delighted when all Hell breaks loose.

She thought summoning a sexy demon lord would be the answer to all of her problems, but her problems are only just beginning when her zealot parents try to burn her at the stake, and Dora is left with only one option—to escape and follow her demon straight into Hell.

LOL Awesomeness!!! Title: Demonic Dora Author: Claire Chilton Genre: Paranormal Format: Ebook Pages: 266 Rating: 5 Heat: 1 Main Characters: Dora, Kieron Supporting Characters: Pooey Thoughts: OMG I should’ve read this sooner!! Laugh out loud and look stupid because you’re by yourself on the bus, or wake your husband up from laughing too loud. I’ve had this book for a while now and just wasn’t ready for it or something, I kept passing it over even though I knew I had to read it. I’m so glad I finally felt bad enough for having it so long and started reading it. Dora is so snarky and hilarious that I could not put this down! The only question I really have is how old is Dora? She still goes to school and lives with her parents but that little detail is never given. I have to say Kieron in her closet tied up in her underwear was one of the best parts. But the absolute best (and I won’t give anything away) is the “nothrowpoo” and “facepalm”. OMG, that’s the one that woke my hubby up! I swear I giggled about that part for a good 30 minutes. Even though the main characters seem to be teenagers (again, no age was given) there are quite a few F-bombs and swears that some might not like, and lots of poo (giggle). Just be aware that this has some mature content, along with some very immature content. I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Holy crap, I don’t even know where to start with this review. I requested this book up from Netgalley because I thought the cover was kind of cool, and the synopsis sounded interesting. I thought it would be something different and fun to read between more serious books I was reading because it wasn’t real long and I thought I could read it pretty quickly. I figured it would make an easy review and blog post. This book wasn’t entirely what I expected. It was freaking hilarious. I’m trying to figure out how exactly the author came up with some of the things that she did for this book without peeing her pants. I never would have thought of some of this stuff, but I’m so glad she did. I read it in less than a day because I really did not want to put it down. I took a bath instead of a shower so I could read it in the tub. I even read it while I washed dishes. I wanted to know what was going to happen! To say that this book was interesting is an understatement. My husband looked at me like I was nuts when I was laughing out loud at some of the references in this book. He also told me to quit texting him at work because I kept telling him funny things that were said. I’m not entirely sure what this book is classified as because Dora is a teenager, but there is a ton of swearing and toilet humor. The sexual content is pretty minimal and is mostly in the form of crude comments. I would probably let my 8th grader read it, but that is me. Always read the book before you let your kids read it and then make the decision from there. My kid is different from yours, so use your good judgment. I’m comfortable with my daughter hearing f-bombs, but not more than a kissing sex scene if that gives you an idea as to what I will tolerate. I won’t let her read sexy-talk. Dora’s parents are insane. They are super religious and her dad has a tv show. He is convinced vegetarians are going to Hell for being abominations. Dora does not fit in with them at all and is convinced she can conjure a demon. Well, she does something alright! And it makes her parents so angry that they decide to do an exorcism on her. The story goes downhill from there and poor Dora finds herself escaping to Hell with a pretty hot sounding guy whose father is the lord of a part of Hell. We are given a tour of Hell essentially and I’ve got to say, from that perspective, I’m not sure it would be that bad. Obviously it would suck if you were on the receiving end of the punishments, but on the giving end, not so much. There is Corporate Hell, which is pretty funny, and then my favorite part of the book. There is a special place in Hell for people who “hurt books”. I’ve always said there was a special place in Hell for people like that, and I’m glad someone else shares my opinion. Its people who pirate books, and troll reviewers (people who write bad reviews just to be jerks regardless of whether they have actually read the book or not. Unfortunately these people really exist). Along the way Dora picks up a pet demon she affectionately names “Pooey” who seems to be a manically depressed ball of fur really. He is hilarious in his own way. I think I identified with Dora in a lot of ways as well. She doesn’t feel like she fits in anywhere, so she is just trying to be somewhere that she can be herself. I think I’ve felt that way for most of my life. Kiernan is a pretty boy demon who has parents just like anyone else who he doesn’t necessarily see eye to eye with about his future. He sounds like any other hormone driven teenage boy on earth. The difference is he can pop horns out of his head and make his eyes glow like fire. Which would have made him pretty hot to me, had I met him when I was a teenager lol. Behind all of the humor of this book, there really is a plot. I can’t really tell you much more about it without giving away too much of the story, and this really is something you should experience yourself. It’s not the most intense or involved story out there, but it is great entertainment and I’m pretty sure this book was intended for entertainment and not some life changing moment. I have a really bad sense of humor that borders on childish at times. Very similar to that of a 12 year old boy. Poop jokes make me giggle. Boob jokes are even better. So please do not make the mistake of taking this book seriously. Read and enjoy it for what it is, entertainment! I recommend this book to anyone with a great sense of humor who is looking for a book that’s a little bit different. The story was pretty good, but the humor is really what did it for me. It’s a quick and easy read that will keep you laughing on almost every page.

Dora is born to heavily religious parents but is unfortunately stuck with quite the personality. Cursed by her love of black and desire to summon a demon from Hell, Dora’s parents attempt to burn her at the stake outside their house. For once Dora is saved by a successfully summoned Demon Lord. As he whisks her away from her crazy parents and neighbours, Dora has only one choice to follow the demon back where he came from. But it can be difficult to survive in a world where a fresh soul like Dora’s is the national currency. There’s treachery afoot. Even her demon lord might not be able to save her. Everything comes down to one final battle in the bowels of Hell between whom else? Dora and her demon lord….The Good: All the interesting bits were about the citizens and structure of Hell. I really loved how Chilton went for the story and took me as a reader on a hilarious ride. Her writing is funny and it’s refreshing to have a book make me laugh out loud. Pooey is definitely my favorite character and I loved how Dora is a strong willed. And she still loves her parents even they try endlessly to kill her!The Bad: For a story that held a lot of promise I’m a bit disappointed with how…rushed everything was. The characters are fun, the personalities of Hell’s occupants are witty, but everything breezes through where I wished the author had lingered. I also wished that the characteristics of Hell had more differences than the modern world. It’s pretty 50/50, and it bugged me that Hell could be so like current day life. There were plenty of other really creative bits, and using something obvious was a bit of a letdown. I am curious to see where the series goes. It’s different, short and unusual. I was provided this book in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to the publisher Ragz Books and the author Claire Chilton for allowing me to review the book! Best of luck with the series and I look forward to reading the second book.
