THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR DEMON SLAYERS
Fox is back and serving up a second helping of high-octane mania. The world according to new demon slayer Lizzie Brown is full of major potholes and irritating biker witches, and the gaps in this heroine's demon-slaying education are both hilarious and
dangerous. The phrase Sin City
never rang truer than it does in
this supernatural ruckus!
Lizzie is only starting to accept her destiny when her uncle Phil gets in trouble with a succubus. Lizzie's witch grandmother and her biker coven, the Red Skulls, insist that everyone head to Vegas to rescue Phil.
Things don't get off to a great start when Lizzie learns she can't enter Vegas without a license from the Department of Intramagical Matters. Since she has basically zero training, passing the test may be problematic. While she's initially thrilled that her protector/boyfriend Dimitri, the shapeshifting griffin, is joining them, learning that griffins are like candy to succubae places them at odds. The fact that there are two dozen more succubae in Vegas suggests that something really bad is on the agenda -- and it won't just stay in Vegas. (LOVE SPELL, May, 368 pp., $7.99)
