Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best seller!
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?

very disappointing and extremely annoying

I was intrigued with the premise of a demon slayer coming of age with a Harley Davidson riding grandma and a talking dog - sounds like fun yes? Well it probably is for some but for me the 'heroine' did nothing but whine in a very very annoying way and grandmas voice - well I have NEVER heard an older woman talk like that - whats with the quavery voice and the shrill manner urgh Even the dog sounded shrill and stupid. When the love interest kicked in that was enough for me. Sorry - returned it and wont be picking up book 2

Disappointingly wet heroine

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The heroine not being attracted to the overbearing git of a "love interest". I couldn't finish the book because it was so obvious that instead of kneeing him in the balls and sending him on his way she was going to confirm his self image as someone she couldn't fail to have the hots for, and let him get away with using it to manipulate her into doing whatever he wanted... {gag!}


What was most disappointing about Angie Fox’s story?

The heroine was so wet it's amazing she didn't drown herself. She "messed up" time and again because she never bothered to refuse to do something until it had been explained to her. And she was obviously on a fast-track to falling for "her protector" despite him being an arrogant git who manipulated her at every turn. It leaves you with no sympathy for and, worse, no empathy with the main protagonist.A real shame since the basic outline had a lot of potential but UGH! That whole girl-with-no-spine-allows-overbearing-man-to-walk-all-over-her thing has been done to death and hasn't got any better with this author's rendition of it, unfortunately.


What three words best describe Tavia Gilbert’s performance?

Better than some.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Accidental Demon Slayer?

All the ones where the heroine allows her protector to walk all over her and manipulate her into doing whatever he wants, and all the ones where she doesn't dig in her heals and demand an explanation before messing up because she hasn't been told what is going on.


Any additional comments?

While the basic outline of the story had potential, the way the heroine is written is basically so annoyingly irritating that I couldn't finish the book, let alone contemplate moving on to any of the others in the series. Honestly! Who wants to read about a woman with so little respect for herself, allowing herself to be doormatted like that?
