A Tale of Two Demon Slayers Audiobook
I’ve really fallen in love with the Demon Slayer series by Angie Fox. Ever since I listened to the first book, I’ve just been in love with the characters. In this series, we have Lizzie, a former kindergarten teacher turned demon slayer. She didn’t know anything about magic or demons until her thirtieth birthday. Her grandmother is a witch and a member of biker gang of witches called The Red Skulls. This gang might be full of geriatric old people, but I will tell you, that isn’t slowing down this group of witches. Oh, once Lizzie got her powers, her Jack Russell Terrier can now speak to her. He’s really a lot of fun and my favorite part of this series. I would also be remiss to leave out Dimitri. The really hot love interest of LIzzie, who’s also a griffin.
In this story, Lizzie and Dimitri are off to Greece for some rest and relaxation. It is also supposed to let Dimitri spend some time with his sisters. He hasn’t spent any time with them since we met him. They haven’t been healthy and seem to be getting worse. They are losing their magic. Dimitri and Lizzie are looking to find out the cause of this magic loss. There is also two griffins from another clan that are sworn to help protect Dimitri’s clan, Amara and Talos. The problem is that Amara is Dimitri’s former fiancee. So, you know there are going to be issues there, even if it is already over.
Lizzie’s grandmother and her gang show up to help with the protections on the property (you have to have some suspension of disbelief in a large group of elderly, chaotic biker witches showing up in Greece with their Harleys, but it’s all good. LOL). The Red Skulls proceed to do what they do best, cause havoc and destroy the place the property. They have no concern just moving in and making themselves at home.
Lizzie also gets some help in another way too. Her grandmother gets her a real trainer, which is something that Lizzie really needs. Since she didn’t have her mother to help teach her about being a demon slayer, she’s way behind on her training. Let’s just say that Rochmort is a very interesting character. He works for the Department of Intramagical Matters Lost Souls Outreach Program. He’s also a necromancer. He has no concept of pop culture either, which we learn when Lizzie quotes Yoda.
As I said, Pirate is a favorite character of mine. The little dog talks nonstop and has some really funny lines in this series. Here, he finds a dragon egg. After it hatches, he’s determined that he needs a pet and that he should get to keep it. He names if Flappy. LOL
A Tale of Two Demon Slayers Audiobook Narration
I love Tavia Gilbert’s narration of this series. I feel she does a great job with the crazy biker gang voices, not to mention Pirate, the terrier. Then when you add in the calm and collected griffins. Then there is Lizzie and here altered swear words. I really love her pacing and how it varies a lot depending on the scene. If you’ve never listened to this narrator, I highly recommend her. You can try her with this series or Jeaniene Frost’s books among others.
New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox writes fun, action-packed stories. She is best known for her Accidental Demon Slayer series, about a demon slayer who runs off with her grandmother’s gang of biker witches. Angie is also catching a lot of buzz for her new Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries. The first book is called Southern Spirits.
While Angie’s characters may be clever and fearless, in real life, Angie is afraid of basements, bees, going up stairs when it’s all dark behind her, and (her friends have way too much fun with this one) puppets.
Angie lives in St. Louis, with her football-addicted husband, two kids, and Moxie the dog.
