Demon Hunting in the Deep South

  1. Lexi grew up in South Alabama in a rural community with one flashing light and a small country store that sold everything from gas to pickled eggs Her father, a circuit judge, collected clocks chiming clocks that binged and banged all night long in rhythm with the trains that chugged and wailed down the railroad track not a hundred yards from Lexi s girlhood home Needless to say, Lexi is a very sound sleeper And to this day, the lonely sound of a train whistle does something to her.She grew up surrounded by cotton fields and wide open spaces She was a major tomboy Dressed in a boy cousin s hand me downs, she ran barefoot, climbed trees, played in ditches, and picked sun warmed dew berries off their prickly vines Sometimes, her parents drove her into town to play with her city cousins They played dress up, made forts, charged up and down dirt mounds in noisy games of King of the Hill and chased the mosquito truck on their bikes.Lexi s mother was a high school English teacher who instilled in her daughter a love of reading and books The muse first struck Lexi in the third grade, when she began to write poetry Bad poetry.She continued to flay the English language throughout high school and college.And then she went to law school and the muse left her.The muse HATED law school.Lexi wasn t too crazy about it either, especially the rule against perpetuities, but with a public relations major and English minor, it seemed the sensible thing to do.After passing the Alabama state bar exam on her first attempt, Lexi got a job as an appellate attorney with a big state agency where she s happily worked ever since Her day job involves writing briefs and reading criminal transcripts transcripts where people do rude things to one another.In Lexi s experience, the human capacity for rudeness is unlimited No doubt, a daily diet of man s inhumanity to man and woman and children and dogs and cats is somewhat responsible for Lexi s desire to escape reality in the pages of a good book Preferably a romance, her favorite genre.Demon Hunting in DixieSome fifteen years ago, the muse abruptly returned from Fiji or Wawbeek or wherever the heck she went, and Lexi started writing again Novels, not poetry She joined a writer s group and wrote and wrote and wroteMON HUNTING IN DIXIE, a paranormal romance, is her debut novel It is peopled with funny characters and sexy demon hunters and lots of supernatural woo woo And the other kind of woo woo as well.The story has a happy ending.Since being traumatized by OLD YELLER at the age of nine, Lexi is all about the happily ever after.

  1. I was feeling a bit stressed due to some doggy aging issues happening in my house, so I decided to head back to Hannah, Alabama for a serving of Lexi George s zany southern colloquialisms and over the top southern stereotypes Of course I can t forget the skeazy demons and yummalicious demon hunters which are congregating in this podunk town full of unique and endearingly hilarious characters.Our Dalvahni demon hunter in this installment is Ansgar, who featured previously in Demon Hunting in Dixi [...]


  2. Actual Rating 2.5 Stars I really like this author s wacky sense of humor Her characters stand out to me with their all around silliness and lightheartedness Reading this provides me much needed laughs to detox from some other heavy readings So I really wanted to like this one.After getting snippets of Evie and Ansgar s romance in Demon Hunting in Dixie I was really excited to read their story here Unfortunately, although I really liked Evie and was rooting for her HEA and loved watching her re [...]


  3. Fans of Kerrelyn Sparks and Molly Harper will devour Demon Hunting in the Deep South.It had everything I love in a paranormal romance plus fantastic comedic relief.Evie s character has had it rough Mother died young, dad turned into a drunk, kids making fun of her weight through school and beyond you d be right in assuming she doesn t have the greatest self esteem Now, don t get the wrong idea, she s not simpering in a dark room wailing about her life, but she s not having a great time either Sh [...]


  4. Demon Hunting in the Deep South by Lexi GeorgeMy rating 5 of 5 starsI finished Demon Hunting In The Deep South and loved it, while it was not quite as hilarious as Demon Hunting In Dixie it may have been a better book as far as plot I give both of them 4.5 Stars and the first book maybe higher since it caught me by surprise and had me almost rolling in the floor laughing This book would have been better if we had of the dog who I loved when referring to the vet as the House of Pain The first bo [...]


  5. I have mixed feelings about the Demon Hunting series I absolutely love the world building and scene setting in this series and in this book Lexi George s individual take on demon hunting and the various paranormal creatures that live in this world is unique and engaging The characters are quirky and amusing, and I love the setting of a small southern town overrun by demons The heroine of this particular book, Evie, is an interesting character for whom it is easy to feel sympathy But I have to gi [...]


  6. 3.5 Chaos, but fun I wanted some good old Southern fun, nothing too serious and this was it It was filled with crazy overblown Southern colloquialisms and overblown typecasts Then to fracture the pacing there is the Demon Hunters use of formal or archaic language I had to stop and look up a couple of words Reading this story was like being in a crazy tornado There was so much going on and some many side players and they were all unique weird Freaky I went through such a gamut of feelings, I was [...]

  8. 2,5 starsReview posted at Books to Brighten your MoodDemon Hunting in the Deep South is one of those books I find it extremely hard to review from time to time For different reasons in most cases, but difficult nonetheless And it s so hard for my to rate and review this one because even though I knew that it was part of a series, I was under the impression that it could be read as a stand alone just as well But that, was a mistake.Let me explain Demon Hunting in the Deep South, has a different s [...]

  10. Did not enjoy this nearly as much as the first book in the series Still had the same quirky characters and I loved my brief glimpses of Addy Brand and Dooley and Mr Fluffy from the first book as these characters were strong, funny and jump off the page Evie and Blondy we are going with Addy s name as I can t remember how to spell the hero s name were fine as support characters in the first book but neither one was interesting enough for their own story Basically this book was a repeat of the fir [...]

  16. This Review was first published on my blog Lecture toute une AventureThis book was than good and it would have gotten probably an higher score if I had read the novella that comes just before this one yes Lexi George did write a novella but she put some allusions to it in this book and thus if you haven t read it you have questions, and some details are annoying because you see you are missing something I like novellas in a universe I love but I prefer when they are not a necessarily read, when [...]

  18. I don t even know where to start with this review because I don t know how to describe this book at all I really enjoyed the book but it was so strikingly different then anything I have read that my mind is boggled with how to write this.The way in which the book is wrote is something between present and historical Evie being present day and Ansgar being a old world demon hunter His speech has a old flavor to it but his attempt at modern speech slang often leads to funny comments from him as he [...]

  20. Even fun than the last book.In book one, Demon Hunting in Dixie, we are introduced to the shy and shapely Evangeline Douglass and the Dalvahni warrior, Ansgar We watched the attraction between these two characters developing in the background of the first story and we also watched the shy Evie blossom into a confident woman But circumstances at the end of DHiD, leave Evie with a case of memory loss Since fraternizing with humans is unacceptable, our very by the book warrior, Ansgar, knowing he [...]


  21. I received an ARC of Lexi s George s new paranormal romance via NetGalley Demon Hunting in the Deep South was a lot of fun and it will have a lot of appeal for fans of the Sookie Stackhouse series It should also be noted that this book is the second in a series, which I was not aware of when I requested it on NetGalley I really wished I had read the first one, as I very much felt that I had missed important details necessary for Deep South Demon Hunting in the Deep South occurs relatively soon a [...]


  22. This review was posted at Under the Covers The magic of the south with a hot demon hunter and a sassy human turned Dalvahni Evie Douglas is 100% a southern belle, as is her BFF Addy Well, I admit I didn t read book one and this was only felt a few times in the book but the main idea of what I missed was that Addy was dating a demon hunter and apparently at some point prior to this book Evie had dated and fallen in love with his brother, Ansgar But life happened, aka demons got in the way, and th [...]

Follow this review and others at mysecretromancebookreviewsThis was a pretty interesting read for me I m from the south and found a certain familiarity with the sayings used in the book, as they are truly southern sayings Things like bless your heart, son of a biscuit eater, and crappydoodle all remind me of home and they appear all over this book It was awesome.I also really liked how Ansgar and Brand the demon hunters spoke with a different cadence and structure It really lent credibility to t [...]

  25. 4.5 out of 5I would like to first state that I jumped in without reading book one Though I had no problem following the book and falling in love with the characters, I will be going back and reading book one Mainly because I have to read Addy s story since I think she is my kinda heroine, but also because I believe you get insight on Evie and Ansgar s beginning.Evie happened to show up at her office and find the nemesis, that made her life hell by picking on her, murdered Not only that, but they [...]

  27. Oh boy What can I say about this book It s fast, it s fun and it s funny I have no idea where Lexi George gets her humor but my hope is to one day meet her so i can find out what she s like in person This book is loaded with sassy southern isms Some i have to admit i didn t fully get at first but that might be because I m a northerner The Demon hunters who are called the Dalvahni are hot sexy warrior men thousands of years old They can t get drunk of liquor but crazy stupid on chocolate Personal [...]
