After reading Demon Ex Machina in 2009 and not seeing any future books on the horizon, I had resigned myself to the fact that this much-loved author was done and there would be no more Kate Conner and the curious town of San Diablo. Much to my delight, Julie Kenner has moved into the world of self-publishing, and with this short story offering and a new book to be published later this year, Kate and her daughter Allie have a new life so to speak.
This teaser falls somewhere between books four and five and has teenage Allie is trying to flex her wings a bit. Quickly realizing that just because her mother is a Demon hunter and she has been practicing her self-defense arts, does not mean that she is able to take on a sneaky devil and protect both herself and her friends.
I love this series, just picture Buffy the Vampire Slayer all grown up with a teenage daughter and a young son who is trying to keep the evil world at bay and having dinner on the table at six. With shock and humor, Kate and her curious band of hunters keep their small town safe no matter what comes crawling out of the panty during a cocktail party.
