Official Description: This is book #1 of the DemonSlayers series
Newspaper reporter Eddy Marks thinks she knows everything about her quiet hometown. She couldn’t be more wrong.
Turns out Evergreen, California, is the site of a vortex that allows demons to cross over to Earth, and the only one who can stop them is an unbelievably sexy fallen demon named Dax who has just crashed into Eddy’s life.
I don’t really know what to think of this book. It was kind of enjoyable, the story was interesting. A Fallen demon who is sent by the good guys, Edenites, to fight escaped demons who are taking over a sleepy little town. It had potential, but it is so stinking repetitive, which just drags this book down into a snail race. We know how the book is going to end, I mean granted the ending was stupid (highlight the following for spoilers). Really Edenites, oops! We didn’t realize that the bad guys would hurt you, now you can go back to Earth and live forever, but wait, there is more, so will your girlfriend!Yes I do find all that annoying, and also the whole insta-love thing is just not interesting, especially when you know the guy is a) a demon and b) got less than a week to live. Eye rolling good times, the other characters were more interesting than Dax and Eddy, like our Lemurian, which the next book is about, and Willow and even the Gargoyle. I’d like to know what’s going on there. Instead the main characters go traipsing around mulling about demons, having some glowing sex, then being depressed about Dax’s inevitable death. I almost didn’t want to finish this book, because it was so predictable and dull. I would think the action scenes would be more intense, but they just kind of sputtered for me. What I liked about the “sexy scenes” is the use of actual anatomy words, there were some slang and clichés going on as well, but it was a sweeter love story than a lot of other books. Oh well, the book is alright, the gist was fun, but the whole of the book kind of fizzled.
