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

4.5 Hearts

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.

Author Angie FoxNew 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.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.

  1. Oh I’m totally addicted to all of Angie’s books but the demon slayer series is a special one to me. Angie is a friend and local author but I haven’t listened to any of her books and its time to rectify that right now! 🙂
    Thanks Melanie

  2. I have the first book and I really need to get to it. Hm… I do think these are on audio at my library. Totally need to see if they have it. Plus PUPPY! I’m kind of glad mine can’t talk… LOL

  3. I don’t know if this is a series that gets better with each book but I was not a huge fan of the first one. It felt just to silly and I found myself doing the eye roll a lot, so I haven’t tried any more, but glad you are loving them. 🙂

  4. How have I not tried this yet? Looks like I need to fix that. 🙂
    Wonderful review for both the book and narration!

  5. I have the first book, but haven’t gotten around to this series yet. I love the idea of the geriatric motorcycle club. Haha!

  6. This sounds like a great series… and Pirate sounds like a great sidekick character!

  7. Haha! For some reason, the dog, Pirate and the fact that he can talk TOTALLY reminded me of Sabrina, the teenage witch, because you know how she had that taking cat and all that? Well, anywho, I’m still trying to get into audiobooks because I knew how much you love them! One day… ONNNEEE DAYYYY <3

  8. You’re seriously making my TBR pile larger and larger every time I read one of your reviews. I’ve had my eye on this author since her first book I think is free on amazon right now, something to do with demon slaying? I might have to try this on audio since Gilbert is narrating it (one of my faves).

    • She is one of my favorites too. Keep an eye out for sales on book one. I got it free and then spent only $1.99 on the audio. I had the free ebook for years before I finally grabbed the audio and listened because Gilbert was the narrator.
