Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best seller!

It's never a good day when an ancient demon shows up on your toilet bowl. For Lizzie Brown that's just the beginning. Soon her hyperactive terrier starts talking and her long-lost biker witch Grandma is hurling Smuckers jars filled with magic. Just when she thinks she's seen it all Lizzie learns she's a demon slayer-and all hell is after her. Of course that's not the only thing after her. Dimitri Kallinikos a devastatingly handsome shape-shifting griffin needs Lizzie to slay a demon of his own. But how do you talk a girl you've never met into going straight to the underworld? Lie. And if that doesn't work how dangerous could a little seduction be?

The Right Narrator for the Right Book

If you could sum up The Accidental Demon Slayer in three words, what would they be?

Utterly, completely fantastic

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lizzie because of her conflicted feelings, her squeamishness and her bravery.

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

There is not a portion of Ms Gilbert's performance that I didn't like. Her ability to give voice to the conflicted Lizzie, from her reaction to that which is gross to her inner arguments, to her elation during her intimate moments with Dimitir... just a great performance. My only question would be "is that what a greek accent really sounds like?" only because the accent given to Dimitri sounded more Mary-Poppin-english than sexy Greek griffin, but that is certainly just me and not at all a distraction from Tavia Gilbert's performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

"Moved"? Well, that is tough to narrow as this book is more a comedy than a moving story. Maybe it would be Lizzie's final decision to remain a demon slayer -- not that I thought for a moment she would "give up" her powers and her grandma and Dimitri, but the inner discussion was touching.

Any additional comments?

I am certain I wouldn't have read this book as entertainly well as Tavia Gilbert did and that makes all of the difference. I volunteered to listen to Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Jukebox. I thought I was getting two birds with one stone, as I had this book already on my to-read list before volunteering to listen to it. What I didn't expect was to be thoroughly entertained and now anxiously awaiting the release of the next Demon Slayer books in audio version.

Lizzie is a mild mannered, likes-to-overplan, preschool teacher with a rising Demon Slayer self awaiting her 30th birthday. Lo and behold, her world starts to unravel as she prepares to prepare for her self-planned birthday celebration. In a mere hour, her long lost grandma shows up, she is battling supernatural creatures and she begins to hear her little doggie talk to her.

This highly entertaining paranormal romance features a timid woman about to come into her true self, a foul-mouthed too-honest grandma, spicy geriatric bikers witches and a yummy griffin "protector" out to save the human world from a power-hungry fifth level demon. Thanks not only to the words provided by Ms Fox, but also to the voice of Tavia Gilbert, this story was addictive and full of more emotion than I naturally read with -- the emotion that Miss Fox may have intended, but I am sure I would have skimmed.

Nearly nine & a half hours in length, this 300+ page book is just the first in a (as of today) 6-books series. I certainly hope that Ms Gilbert will provide her voice to each installment of the series.

Old Lady Biker Chicks

Wow. This story was so funny i am still laughing. What happens when you are getting ready to out with your friends to celebrate your 30th birthday and along comes your long lost grandma on her "hog". Then tells you that you are a demon slayer. Then in comes a demon standing on your toilet seat trying to kill you. That can ruin your whole day. She then practically drags you out of your house along with your terrier dog who you now can talk too and expects you to get on her Harley and run because the demons are after you. You continue to be attacked get stuck in hole and have to be rescued by a Griffin shifter who says he is your protector. Then get to a biker bar where your grandma's witch coven is at. They are all a bunch of old lady biker types. Thus your new life begins.

This book was a "hoot". It reminded me of a cross between Molly Harper's Half Moon Hollow books and Robyn Peteman's Fashionly Dead series and her Magic and Mayhem.

Loved them. Look forward to reading more.

The Accedental Demon Slayer

What made the experience of listening to The Accidental Demon Slayer the most enjoyable?

Tavia GIlbert was a great narrator. She made the story "pop" and the characters come alive.

What other book might you compare The Accidental Demon Slayer to and why?

I can't answer that, I haven't listened to another similar to it.

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I have not heard Tavia Gilbert before

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Lizzie decided she was going to stay a Demon Slayer and understanding all it would take.

Any additional comments?

Angie Fox is a fabulous author! I can't wait to hear more about Lizzie, Dimitri, the witches and of course Pirate.

Better Than I Anticipated!

Ok, this story's on the silly side, but that's what makes this such a hilarious, fun audio to listen too. It was better than I anticipated, and I would listen to another one in the series. Tavia's performance was outstanding! It's was a great whispersync deal!

What a romp!

This is a really funny story told well by both the author and reader. The Accidental Demon Slayer is the first in a terrific series by Angie Fox. Tavia Gilbert reads it well infusing the snark and humor as written. She got the characters down especially after she dropped Dimitri's greek accent. This story made a long trip fly by and I think my husband will be willing to listen to the rest of the series. He is a big fan of the Red Skulls.

Anything performed by Tavia Gilbert is a winner!

What did you love best about The Accidental Demon Slayer?

The story sounded fun. Tavia Gilbert brings each character to life in this production. I loved the funny attitudes of the Red Skulls and of course, Grandma Gertie.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Pirate. But I am biased. I have a jack russell terrier too. Boy, I wished I could understand her like Lizzie does with Pirate.

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

Tavia Gilbert is truly one of the best voice actors I have ever heard.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Biker Witch Grandma shows granddaughter the way of demon slaying by just saying "do it."

Any additional comments?

Audible studios...Let's us have the rest of the series on Audible read by Tavia Gilbert!

OK

Grandma in mortal danger, being chased by werewolves, now is a great time to have sex???!? Why are all paranormal characters sex maniacs? I realize sex sells but it needs to be integrated properly.

Could not even finish listening.

I like to listen to books while I work, drive, walk, etc. and this book never got me hooked. The main character is a negative and whiner. She drove me crazy. I made it to chapter 8 and could not listen to the "flirting conflict" (?!?) or at least I think that is what it was supposed to be, between the lead and her protector. I never got to the point where I even cared what was happening and when I realized there where 20+ chapters I just stopped in the middle of 8.
I really wanted to like this and I'm glad it only cost $2 for the audio file. Sorry, but I will not be reading (or listening) to any more in this series.

Annoying.

Not sure why there are so many high ratings for this book, it was annoying. I hate it when the main character is too stupid to live. First off she is such a fuddy duddy and to quoted the story, "no sense of adventure." She wonders around like a chicken with her head cut off and doesn't ask questions. Then does things that are contrary to her personality, but we as a read have yet to even see those traits. Then after no training or even valuable information she is running into a dangerous situation and she will just figure it out, only she can save the coven from unknown dangers, blah, blah, blah. Can't image why things didn't go as she thought they would. Then to top off the annoying characters list, all the other characters were so over the top, so much they are not believable as people and it made me want to shot them, grandma first. It was annoying that everybody expected her to know things without any explanation and then would get mad when she needed help. I only made about 3 hours before switching to something else. Normally I like this narrator and as a whole she did fairly good, you can distinguish who is who, but the main characters voice was a bit whinny to me which does not help me like her any better.

very disappointing and extremely annoying

I was intrigued with the premise of a demon slayer coming of age with a Harley Davidson riding grandma and a talking dog - sounds like fun yes? Well it probably is for some but for me the 'heroine' did nothing but whine in a very very annoying way and grandmas voice - well I have NEVER heard an older woman talk like that - whats with the quavery voice and the shrill manner urgh Even the dog sounded shrill and stupid. When the love interest kicked in that was enough for me. Sorry - returned it and wont be picking up book 2

Disappointingly wet heroine

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The heroine not being attracted to the overbearing git of a "love interest". I couldn't finish the book because it was so obvious that instead of kneeing him in the balls and sending him on his way she was going to confirm his self image as someone she couldn't fail to have the hots for, and let him get away with using it to manipulate her into doing whatever he wanted... {gag!}

What was most disappointing about Angie Fox’s story?

The heroine was so wet it's amazing she didn't drown herself. She "messed up" time and again because she never bothered to refuse to do something until it had been explained to her. And she was obviously on a fast-track to falling for "her protector" despite him being an arrogant git who manipulated her at every turn. It leaves you with no sympathy for and, worse, no empathy with the main protagonist.A real shame since the basic outline had a lot of potential but UGH! That whole girl-with-no-spine-allows-overbearing-man-to-walk-all-over-her thing has been done to death and hasn't got any better with this author's rendition of it, unfortunately.

What three words best describe Tavia Gilbert’s performance?

Better than some.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Accidental Demon Slayer?

All the ones where the heroine allows her protector to walk all over her and manipulate her into doing whatever he wants, and all the ones where she doesn't dig in her heals and demand an explanation before messing up because she hasn't been told what is going on.

Any additional comments?

While the basic outline of the story had potential, the way the heroine is written is basically so annoyingly irritating that I couldn't finish the book, let alone contemplate moving on to any of the others in the series. Honestly! Who wants to read about a woman with so little respect for herself, allowing herself to be doormatted like that?

What a ride

Demons, witches and sexy griffins, what more can you ask for? I really enjoyed this first story and cannot wait to see what trouble Lizzie and the delicious Dimitri can get themselves into in Vegas!
As a first in a series, there was enough suspense, laugh out loud laughter and toe curling sexual tension.
The narrator was absolutely fabulous and I cannot think of anyone who would have done a better job.

bad narrator for a bad story

Poor story; plot twists are contrived to make the story go where the author wants it to the just come out of the blue instead of flowing with the narrative. The bits that were meant to be funny were not, generally just a poor book. Another I won't be listening to again. the narrator's voice is high pitched and the accent is awful.

Excruciating narration

Loved the story. However the narration was so bad that it distracted from the story. I want to read the rest of the series and will return the second book in audio. It's terrible.
