I listened to the first book in this series on audio earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I thought it was fun and a great listen. I was very excited to be told that this book was to be released on audio as well. The narrator, Tavia Gilbert is perfect for this series. Now, I’m hoping that more will be released as well.

This book takes place not long after the ending of The Accidental Demon Slayer. LIzzie is starting to figure out her power, somewhat. She is still traveling with the Red Skulls, her grandmother’s biker witch coven and with her gryphon boyfriend, Dimtri. When she learns that her fairy godfather/uncle is being seduced by a succubus, she must travel to Vegas to save him.

Lizzie learns that she still has a lot to learn to not only master her powers, but also just about this new magical, demonic world in general. She has to get a permit from Department of Intramagical Procedures (DIP), which only goes to show how much she doesn’t know. This makes her decide that she needs a book with all the information that she acquires as she learns it, hence the title.

While if Vegas, she meets up with a demon hunter, Max. I was a little concerned when Max first made it into the picture that there would be a love triangle, but fear not, this is not an issue.

This has been a fun and cute series. It reminds me of a Molly Harper story. It has great characters that are a little quirky. I mean, Lizzie is a former kindergarten teacher turned demon slayer with a talking Jack Russell terrier, Pirate. She doesn’t cuss, even in her thoughts. She flies by the seat of her pants, but gets things done in the end. The beginning of each chapter even has a snippet from The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers to start each chapter off.

The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers Audiobook Narration

4 Hearts

Tavia Gilbert once again does a great job with the narration of this story. I don’t know that I would like this story as much just reading. Her narration really adds to the story, in my opinion. She really brings out the humor in the characters. If you’ve listened to her narrate the Cat & Bones books, just know that these books she uses a completely different feel because of the different type of humor. I wouldn’t say that one is better than the other, but that she did a great job of tailoring her narration to fit with the story. I just hope that she has more of these books in her future.

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. It’s always fun to see how a character deals with being introduced to a magical worls they know nothing about. It sounds fun with how she starts to write a book about it.
    That’s good to know it doens’t turn into a love triangle. It sounds like a great sequel!

    • I was a little concerned when Max showed up. So many authors like to have love triangles. I’m glad this Angie Fox didn’t go that direction.

  2. This series sounds fun and like one I’d enjoy! Great review Melanie 🙂

    • It is a very fun series so far. There’s 7 books in the series. They are slowly coming out on audio. I’m hoping that they all eventually make it. Tavia Gilbert’s narration really adds to the story.

  3. Like Molly Harper, eh? I like it already!

  4. This sounds really good and I love Tavia Gilbert. I’m adding this series to my TBR =)

    • I fell in love with Tavia Gilbert when I started listening to Cat & Bones. Now, I have another series that I love with here. She also has another series with this author that I haven’t tried yet, but I plan to start very soon.

  5. Oh yay! I just realized that I have book one. I liked what you said about the tone of the story and the quirky characters.

    That’s really cool that the narrator is more than a one-string banjo and can shift to take on the personality of each series.

    • This is such a fun series. I think you’ll like Sophia. I can’t wait until book three is released on audio.

  6. I had a hard time with the first book in this series, it was to over the top for me…..lol. Glad you like the series though. 🙂 The narrator did make me laugh.

    • I don’t know how I would feel reading it. Sometimes, I can handle more on audio than I can reading. Tavia Gilbert really brought the whole thing together for me.

  7. I’ve never read a book by Angie Fox, but this series sounds really interesting. I’m very glad to hear that there isn’t a love triangle in this. That’s always my concern, especially with a series. I’ll have to check these books out.

    • I know, I’m the same way. I really dislike love triangles. That was why I was so worried when Max made his first appearance. So glad it didn’t go that way.

  8. I keep meaning to try this series because it looks like so much fun but then I forget about it again. I need to push this up my TBR!

    • I had the first book on my kindle as a free read for a long time before I finally picked up the audio. I’m so glad that I finally picked it up.

  9. I love that there’s a talking Jack Russell terrier! I’m pretty sure I have the first one in e-book. I also need to try something narrated by Tavia Gilbert. Great review!

    • If you have the first book on Kindle, you can buy the audiobook for only $2.99 on Audible. That’s a great deal. If you don’t have it on kindle, it is free at the moment. Not sure for how long.

  10. I think I’m always getting Angie Fox and Molly Harper books confused. Their covers are slightly similar, too. I mean now, looking at them, I can tell them apart, but in the library, forget ’bout it!

    This sounds like so much fun! It would be super cook for her to come out of Kindergarten/no cussing “shell” and let loose! I’m thinking that happens b/c you’ve coded this as “hot” 🙂 Great review!

    • They are similar in humor. They both have great narrators too. I just started Angie Fox this year. I’ve been listening to Molly Harper for two years I think. I really love them both.

  11. I have the 1st book on audio. Once I’m caught up on my audio series I have going on I’ll give it go.

    • It is a fun series. It reminds me a bit of Jane Jameson. I really hope that they work their way through all the books on audio. I’m also going to pick up the other series by this author/narrator on audio. I saw that Felicia picked it up too.

  12. I remember reading one or two of these books but I don’t think I ever finished the series. And it was so fun too! Glad to hear you are enjoying these books, I might need to find audiobook copies for myself 😀

    • So far, just the first two books in this series are on audio. I know that the third one is in the works. I hope that they will work their way through the whole series. This author/narrator pairing has another series that I plan on trying too.
