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...?

The Accidental Demon Slayer was a light and funny read. There were enough jokes to keep my cheeks burning, but for me; the story did have it plot holes. Firstly, Lizzie…I liked the girl, but really patience is a virtue and honey could have used some. You’re just finding out you’re a demon slayer…um you might want to take the advise of the Griffin/sexy Dimitri. Let him train you the way he wants without the fight.

I had a hard time connecting with Lizzie sometimes. Once minute she was butt gusting funny and the next she worked my nerves. So there were some character/reader connection issues going on in this tale of a newbie demon slayer. I dislike in any book when secrets are kept especially when it comes to the survival of the Heroine/Hero. I say let it loose in the beginning of the story and then we can go from there.

I liked the world building, but I did get the feeling that it was a little rushed. The Accidental Demon Slayer is a story that will have you cracking a smile from ear to ear, but there could be some development of the characters and this world as they were at times hard to connect too…the story at times, just a little too unbelievable.


Since Dimitri was hot for Lizzie & she was a teacher....
