What’s it about?
Biker Grannies, wicked Werewolves, A gorgeous Griffin and damnable Demons… Oh and a very reluctant, newly-ascended demon slayer!
From the very first page I was laughing! This book is well written, humorous, interesting, exciting and just what the reader ordered. I adored Lizzie and her preschool-friendly cuss words. The contrast between Lizzie and her Grandma was flabbergasting – a leather and rhinestone wearing, pink Harley riding rocker biddie – Utterly brilliant! Then there is Pirate …Lizzies pet Jack Russell. Upon ascending to her powers Lizzie realises that she can understand her overexcited and protective pooch …and let me tell you the conversations between them are hilarious.
And all that is in the first chapter!
Reading on we discover a tale of hunter and hunted, a rescue and a chase, a few mysteries are solved and a true love acknowledged. I won’t say more because really you should just read it.
I realized my would-be attacker was, in fact, my Jack Russell terrier. Pirate was mostly white, with a dollop of brown on his back that wound up his neck and over one eye. He scampered around the corner into the kitchen, slid three feet and nearly thwacked his head on the side of the refrigerator.
“Pirate.” The tension oozed out of me and I about collapsed on the floor in front of him. He leapt into my arms and licked wherever he could reach. I hugged him close, his wiry hair tickling my nose. “Where have you been, boy?” His entire body wriggled with excitement.
“Alone! Locked in the backyard! Alone! But I dug under the fence. And then I ate through the screen on the front door. And I’m here now! I’m here! What’d I miss?” My blood froze.
“Oh no, no, no.” I scrambled away from him like an oversized crab. “There’s a demon in my dog!” Pirate danced in place.
“Are you kidding? It’s me! I burrowed, I ate screen, I ignored Mrs. Cristople’s tabby cat. I’m here to save you!”
