OfSorts: DEMONS SHEMONS – (a review, of sorts)
Author: K.B. DRAPER
A delightful, well-written, lighthearted, and humorous romp!
I am not a person who normally reads about demons and devils and such. In fact, I almost missed out on one of my favorite book series because it had ‘devil’ in the title. I admit to being a bit of a prude, and a scaredycat. What can I say?
I am happy to report, I was not overly anxious(most of the time), and ! laughed… a LOT.
Demons SHEmons is a cauldron of genres, seasoned with romance, and spiced with humor and tension. It was, for me, a fun and easy read.
P.S. For those keeping track of such things, this was a very ‘clean’ read. I only noticed two dropped words, and one transposed word. That’s almost immaculate! (I’m beginning think dropped words are a rite of passage for writers. Rarely do I find a book without at least one, lol.) Kudos to the author and to the editor.
The book blurb:
Most people come home with a window sticker, a shot glass, or a bottle opener cleverly disguised as a key chain from their summer vacations, not Addison Jo Mattox (a.k.a. AJ, if you want to keep your front teeth). Nope, instead of hitting a three-for-ten T-shirt shop like a good tourist, AJ drunkenly stumbled into a sacred Native American Indian ritual and accidentally inherited an ancient hunter spirit.
Now AJ, the hunter spirit, whom she lovingly named Norm, and Danny, Norm’s rightful heir, wander the country fighting demons that escape from Hell to enjoy this world’s lavish all-you-can-eat soul buffet.
A national park in Mississippi is the next stop on their traveling shit show because someone or something (spoiler alert: it’s totally a demon) is killing residents of a nearby small town. But demons aren’t the only thing AJ and Danny have to contend with this go around. Throw in a self-righteous, holier-than-thou reverend, his dick-for-brains son, a not-so-sure-what-side-of-the-law-she’s-on sheriff and a super-sexy, do-jiggly-things-to-your-naughty-bits park ranger and well, AJ just might find herself in a battle that she’s not prepared for … love.
