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…?
I really enjoyed this listen…let’s see you have a biker grandma who is a witch (and belongs to a coven of biker witches who are all a bit over the top and kinda freaky), a very talkative JRT named Pirate, mister “I’m to sexy for my shirt” Dimitri (hey…Right Said Fred just popped in my head when I was trying to come up with a description and since the song is now stuck in my head I’m sharing the joy) and last but not least our very uptight Lizzie. Everything that could possibly go wrong did. . I do have to say that Pirate was my favorite he was just so cute and very funny….the perfect comedic sidekick
While some of the antic’s of the coven seemed a bit over the top to me it was fun to see Lizzie learn about her demon slaying abilities and to learn to let go a little bit and realize and that she was not alone and had people who could help. The romance between Lizzie & Dimitri, while a bit predictable was still interesting. The one part that bothered me a bit was the meeting with Phoenix and some of the information that was just kind of put out there, some of it just seems like loose ends and I hope we get some answers in the coming books.
The narration was great, Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite narrators and I have taken a chance on trying a few new authors just because she narrates the story. She did a great job with all the character voices, each with their own distinct voice. I really want to dive into the next book to see what happens in Vegas, but I’m going to wait until the audio is available as her narration just adds that little bit of extra something to the storytelling.
