Product Description

Review

FoA new talent just hit the urban fantasy genre, and she has a genuine gift for creating dangerously hilarious drama. Viewed through Lizzie's eyes, events are both comically absurd and terrifying. Fox has created her own unique flavor of the supernatural.
-- Romantic Times Magazine

Product Description

A New York Times bestseller!

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…?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut! 8 July 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Preschool teacher Lizzie Brown's life may never be the same when her long lost witch grandmother shows up driving a hot pink Harley and starts casting magic spells from Smucker's jars. Pirate, her Jack Russell terrier, starts talking! Lizzie discovers that she is the exalted Demon Slayer of Dalea and a demon, Xerxes, emerges from her toilet to cause even more havoc! As they head to Memphis to join the grandmother's just as strange coven to learn magic, Dimitri Kallinikos, a shape shifting griffin shows up as her mentor. Teaching her the three rules of demon slaying, he is both protector and teacher. Dimitri, however, needs her to slay a demon of his own and as their feelings for each other grow, Lizzie and Dimtri are forced to make tough choices when family loyalties come into play in a battle begun generations ago.

Told through Lizzie's eyes, THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER, follows the heroine on the journey of her maturation and self-discovery in a well-imagined world ever so kooky yet touched by wonderful dash of tenderness. Within 12 hours, Lizzie has lost her home, her job, her clothes, and her friends to follow her grandmother, accused of murder, to be trained in magic and face demons and her destiny as the new family demon slayer. Unaware of the extent of her powers or her family history, Lizzie struggles to make sense of the crazy world her grandmother opens before her. As she comes to face with The Witches of the Red Skull with its cantankerous witch Ant Eater, werewolves, and above all her own magical powers, Lizzie sees the humorous outrageousness of her situation with a unique sense of innocence and irreverent sass. Although her dog Pirate plays the tough guy, the reader sees the tenderness within Lizzie's heart through him.

2.0 out of 5 stars meh 4 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
2.5
Meh. I've seen it done before and done better. Mechanically the writing was fine, as was the editing but the story itself and the plotting...disastrous. It's a longish book. There should have been ample time to develop characters, a world and relationships However, Ms. Fox appears to have not bothered.

If this book was a cake, the eggs would still be in the shells (maybe even still in the container), the four in its bag, the butter in the dish, the milk in the jug, etc, all tossed in a bowl to sit next to each other. All the ingredients are there (a hunky love interest, an unavoidable destiny, an evil antagonist, a spunky side-kick, etc), but not mixed, measured or cooked.

There is no depth to any of the characters and some, most notably Dimitri, are wildly inconsistent, as is the plot. Time is indeterminate. The whole book takes place in 2 or 3 days (not sure which), but characters talk about things happening days ago that appear to have happened hours earlier, at most. And at one point someone goes on what must have been an extended adventure in the time it takes Dimitri and Lizzie to sit up and say, 'hi.'

A shirt is ripped open a page after it was slowly unbuttoned. Dimitri admits to a lie that couldn't have held water with the rest of the knowledgeable coven. Plus, he talks like he just showed up but is also supposed to have been hanging out with the witches and werewolves for a while. The antagonist, who has been killing and absorbing the power of all the witches in America for a hundred plus years (so, you know strong and skilled), is somehow easily defeated by a slayer with two days of "training." Honestly, how believable is that? I could go on, but you get the point, I imagine.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent first book 19 Oct 2008
By Pookie
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Angie Fox has created a marvellously funny twist on the urban fantasy genre with this book.

Lizzie's day goes from normal to weird in one hit when a demon materialises in her toilet bowl as she is getting ready to celebrate her 30th birthday. Add to that, a grandmother she didn't know she had appears on the doorstep riding a pink Harley, and her dog starts talking to her.

It's not often a book will make me snigger aloud, but his one did! I really enjoyed it, and I look forward to the next offering from this great new talent. I'm hoping for a series featuring these wonderful characters!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly amusing 26 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Entertaining if you parked your disbelief at the other end of the room, it was OK as a short one off compared to the other free e-books at the time I downloaded it. Certainly sounds a heck of a lot better than the sequels to the story.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a book about a school teacher who (unknowingly) has a destiny to fulfil: Upon reaching the age of 30 she is destined to be a demon slayer. The story is told in the first person singular from the viewpoint of the school teacher, Lizzie.

Books like this (humor, action and magic/the supernatural) do not actually need to be superbly constructed in the areas of character description, plot coherence, language and explanations (believeability).

There is a lower limit, though, and The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox is just a little below that limit.

While the book presents quite a few funny ideas and has a break neck pace to it, that is just not enough.

The novel starts out just fine: Action and humor in the bathroom of the protagonist. At this point we do not need much by way of an explanation. Then the action races on, and on, and on, non-stop, and our trust that we were going to get a proper explanation for some of the things going on is, unfortunately, let down. It becomes an increasingly messy, confusing and unengaging read.

An example: In the beginning of the story the main character effectively stops time for all other people than herself. This is, of course, a devastating power to wield, and perhaps the author realizes this, because she never explains why or how it happens, and she never or uses the trick or even refers to it again.

Another example: Suddenly the dog of the protagonist starts talking like a human being; this is cute, but it is not really used for anything in relation to the story, and why it happens in the first place is not explained in any way.
