Book Review: The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox
by Tif Sweeney, Walrus Contributor
During the first-ever bookstore cruise hosted by the Saint Louis Independent Bookstore Alliance, I had the pleasure of meeting a multitude of local authors, including Angie Fox. Fox welcomed the cruise-goers with a bright smile in the quaint Main Street Books, and for that reason alone, I picked up her book to give it a try. I had no idea she would take me on such a fun ride with her paranormal world!
The Accidental Demon Slayer is the first in the Demon Slayer series introducing readers to Lizzie Brown. Lizzie is a preschool teacher who loves her job and plans out everything in her life; however, all that changes when her biological grandmother shows up on her doorstep and a demon appears on her toilet. She is taken for the ride of her life, meeting crazy witches, moody werewolves, and one seriously hot griffin, leaving her trying to decide between two polar opposite lives.
After finishing a classic chunkster (The Count of Monte Cristo), I picked this book up for a quick, light read. What I got was much more than that. The Accidental Demon Slayer was quick and light, but it was also so much fun and filled with just the right amount of humor. I cannot wait to see what adventures Lizzie Brown encounters in the second of Fox’s series, The Dangerous Book of Demon Slayers.
