My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com.
I listened to the first book in this series on audio earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I thought it was fun and a great listen. I was very excited to be told that this book was to be released on audio as well. The narrator, Tavia Gilbert is perfect for this series. Now, I’m hoping that more will be released as well.
This book takes place not long after the ending of The Accidental Demon Slayer. LIzzie is starting to figure out her power, somewhat. She is still traveling with the Red Skulls, her grandmother’s biker witch coven and with her gryphon boyfriend, Dimtri. When she learns that her fairy godfather/uncle is being seduced by a succubus, she must travel to Vegas to save him.
Lizzie learns that she still has a lot to learn to not only master her powers, but also just about this new magical, demonic world in general. She has to get a permit from Department of Intramagical Procedures (DIP), which only goes to show how much she doesn’t know. This makes her decide that she needs a book with all the information that she acquires as she learns it, hence the title.
While if Vegas, she meets up with a demon hunter, Max. I was a little concerned when Max first made it into the picture that there would be a love triangle, but fear not, this is not an issue.
This has been a fun and cute series. It reminds me of a Molly Harper story. It has great characters that are a little quirky. I mean, Lizzie is a former kindergarten teacher turned demon slayer with a talking Jack Russell terrier, Pirate. She doesn’t cuss, even in her thoughts. She flies by the seat of her pants, but gets things done in the end. The beginning of each chapter even has a snippet from The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers to start each chapter off.
Tavia Gilbert once again does a great job with the narration of this story. I don’t know that I would like this story as much just reading. Her narration really adds to the story, in my opinion. She really brings out the humor in the characters. If you’ve listened to her narrate the Cat & Bones books, just know that these books she uses a completely different feel because of the different type of humor. I wouldn’t say that one is better than the other, but that she did a great job of tailoring her narration to fit with the story. I just hope that she has more of these books in her future.
