HIJINKS, SHENANIGANS, & LAUGHS GALORE!!!
I love, love, love What to Expect When Your Demon Slayer is Expecting! Actually, I adore the entire series and have been going through slayer withdrawal, while not so patiently waiting for Angie Fox to release a new book in this collection, and I must say, it was definitely worth the wait! The Accidental Demon Slayer is back and she's better than ever. No one rocks a black leather mini-skirt, bustier, and sexy boots like Lizzie Brown, or I should say Lizzie Brown Kallinikos now that she's happily married to her hot Greek griffin shifter Dimitri Kallinikos. Don't tell anyone I told you, but our favorite demon slayer's bustier days might be behind her, at least for a while, since she's expecting. Sorry for spilling the beans, but the title may have already let the cat out of the bag. lol... But all jokes aside, I became a fan of Fox's work five years ago, after reading The Accidental Demon Slayer, the first book in the Biker Witches Mystery Series, and now I'm completely addicted to everything she writes. Fox is one of only a handful of authors who is on my automatic one-click list. When she releases a book, I never even bother to read the blurb; I just point and click. Fox is an incredibly gifted storyteller and skilled wordslinger with an extraordinary imagination and the unique ability to balance laugh-out-loud humor, outrageous antics, and colorful, over-the-top characters with serious storylines, and she does it effortlessly. If you enjoy fabulously fun paranormal romps filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, adventure, suspense, hijinks, shenanigans, laughs galore, a large cast of endearing characters, and sweet romance, then this book is screaming your name. But be forewarned, this series is much spicier than Fox's Southern Ghost Hunters Series and by that I mean, it does get a little steamy in the shower and between the sheets. Hubba! Hubba! Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! Will I read this author again? Absolutely, just as soon as she releases her next book! Would I recommend it? You bet, and I am but only for adult readers. It does include a little profanity and the sex scenes are not plentiful, they are explicit but tastefully written. This book is a full-length novel(approximately 220 pages) and can be read as a standalone, but having said that, I highly recommend reading the first book of the series which, I believe, is set as perma-free at most major book retailers. I'm sure it's one decision you'll never regret. And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Preschool teacher Lizzie Brown knew she'd been adopted as an infant but had no other knowledge of her ancestry until all haydees broke loose on her thirtieth birthday when her biological grandmother suddenly showed up at her door for the first time, rocking leather chaps and a 'Kiss My Asphalt' t-shirt... and riding a pink Harley! Unfortunately, that's not the worst of what was yet to come for the prim and proper Lizzie who'd been raised to be a genteel and always gracious southern belle. According to her obviously nutcase grandmother, Lizzie is a powerful witch, just like all the other woman in her bloodline, and she's about to come into her powers. But that's not all - she's not only a witch, she's also a demon slayer, the Exalted Demon Slayer of Dalea, and a demon is just minutes away from trying to kill her. Oh my! What's good southern girl to do? Hightail it out of Atlanta, Georgia on the back of her Grandma's pink Harley with her now talking pet Jack Russell terrier Pirate and never look back - until now! According to her adoptive parents Clint and Hillary Brown, Lizzie and her hot griffin shifter hubby, Dimitri Kallinikos, are long overdue for a visit, her first since leaving Atlanta, and Lizzie isn't looking forward to it at all. She's stayed away all this time to protect her family and friends from the evil she fights. It's her heritage, after all, to banish evil and keep the world safe, and she's very good at her job. She's a kickbutt demon slayer, if she does say so herself. But it's Dimitri's birthday and she suspects her mother is throwing him a surprise party, so she can't really say no. Sadly, she never anticipated her mom Hillary being possessed by some sort of evil entity, and she certainly wasn't expecting to be - well, expecting. Looks like Lizzie has her work cut out for her - again. At least, she has hot hubby Dimitri, her dog Pirate, her grandma Gertie, and the entire Red Skulls Coven of biker witches to help her out. And let's not forget Pirate's pet dragon, Flappy, plus there may be a few other familiar faces joining the party too. This big, bad evil isn't playing around and Lizzie will need all her slayer skills to defeat this enemy. But what happens if Lizzie loses her powers? We'll see!
I can honestly say this is one of my favorite series Lizzie and the gang never disappoint me. I always finish off each book with a smile on my face! This book was no different. Though there were times during reading I though I’d be a little sad at the end I totally wasn’t.
Lizzie has for sure stepped I a steaming pile of trouble this time. Trouble that’s way outta the gangs depth, or so they think. What started out as an innocent trip to visit Lizzie’s mother Hillary so that she could throw Dimitri a big birthday bash has ended up a possession no one quite knows how to handle. The need to exercise what they think is a demon without killing its host is real strong in this book so a gentler solution needs to be found. Can the gang exercise the demon from Hillary before she is gone forever is the burning question this book poses and it’s it really a demon or something else....
All the major players make an appearance in this book, and lots of big news is shared. It’s a great addition to the series and brings the series onto whole new path. I can’t wait to see if there are more great books in this series future!!
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review that does not change my opinion of this book*.
Lizzie is looking forward to her return home. Except while on the phone with her mother, Lizzie discovers an entity has captured her mother. The Red Skulls try frantically to save her mother in time. There is just one big hitch. Lizzie is pregnant! There are twists and surprising turns aplenty. So hold onto your handlebars because you are in for an exciting ride. Enjoy!
What to Expect When Your Demon Slayer is Expecting by Angie Fox
What to Expect When Your Demon Slayer is Expecting by Angie Fox
Eighth book in the Demon Slayer Biker Witch paranormal mystery series. There are almost as many novellas in this series as well. You can find the reading order on the author’s website. The books should be read in order.
The Demon Slayer is again fighting for her life against evil with the Biker Witches and family helping. Lizzie has come full circle with family and fighting skills. This latest evil takes all hands on deck.
Mostly dark because of the demons. Tense, mystery format with lighter moments provided by Pirate.
I love these continuing stories of the granny aged witches as a motorcycle gang and Lizzie’s success at fighting Demons but mostly inept witch skills. The whole jelly jar spell holder concept makes me want to start collecting them in case someday I have a need.
Excerpt because I love humor more than almost anything else in my reading:
“But the second Crazy Frieda’s motorcycle stopped next to me, Pirate leapt out of the sidecar like a dog on fire.
“Wow, what a ride!” he said, shaking off in a move that involved his entire body. He turned in a circle. “I broke my new bug-eating record! I love it, they just fly right into your mouth, and you don’t have to chase them or anything!”
Pirate was an energetic Jack Russell terrier, mostly white but with a dollop of brown on his back that wound up his neck and over one eye. Ever since I’d come into my powers, I’d been able to speak with my dog. In real sentences. In the beginning, I’d thought my new ability would enable me to at last crack the code on canine thoughts and behaviors. Now, I understood my dog mostly thought about bacon and beef jerky and pretty much any food besides the food I bought for him.”
Frieda winked at me and patted her stacked blond hair, miraculously unmussed from her silver and white motorcycle helmet. “I’ll go ahead and get the little baby a snack.” Frieda strolled for the main building, Pirate trotting at her side.
“Dog treats,” I called, “you know you want to be a good dog.”
“I heard her say hot dog,” Pirate remarked.”

Angie Fox is amazing!
I received and ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
As usual I couldn't put Angie Fox's book down! I devoured every page. This series is a must read. All of the characters are hilarious in their own right. Lizzie, the biker witches, and Pirate make me laugh out loud constantly, and Lizzie's straight laced mom brings on her own laughs. This was a great tie-in to the last book, but you don't absolutely have to read all of the books in the series in their order to enjoy the series. Can't wait for more Demon Slaying!
By math wizard
I would give this book more than five stars! Such an excellent well written story! From the title you know that Lizzie and Dimitri are expecting a baby but they do not know it for a while and you the reader do know. Lizzie is on her way home to her parents house to the birthday party for her husband , Dimitri. A phone call from her mom and all hell breaks loose. Her mother’s life is in jeopardy. The story has lots of action and feelings but things do not work out as they expect as they try to save her mother’s life. Help comes from a twisted source but saving help comes from family and friends! Yes, Lizzie’s powers are a bit unusual from her being pregnant but it makes the story very interesting! I loved the story and I highly recommend this book!
A fun, wild romantic paranormal thriller with unexpected twists and turns!
The top of your reading list just hit the shelves with Angie Fox’s What to Expect When Your Demon Slayer is Expecting. Fresh off of a crazy adventure in the Big Easy, Lizzie and crew are headed for her hometown but little do they know, she’s bringing more than her hunky husband, talking dog, dragon-in-training, and my favorite, her grandmother and the biker witches with her.
Fox’s relationship building game is strong as ever in this 8th installment of her Demon Slayer series as she tackles the tenuous relationship between Lizzie, her society maven mother, and financial wizard father. We get some of the backstory between these characters, and a glimpse of how life comes full circle. Trust and the boundaries that go with it are tested, and ultimately Lizzie discovers who she can trust, and who she can’t as she battles forces that are largely a mystery to her and her cohorts.
As usual, spells are flying from the biker witches’ shenanigans, the detailed love scenes are very hot and steamy, and Lizzie’s wacky pets will keep you laughing. This is a great read that I devoured in an afternoon.
My favorite thing about the book: the nostalgic nods to loved ones past and getting to know Lizzie’s mother, better.
What would “improve” the book for me: there’s no such thing as too much Grandma Gertie and the biker witches, and while this has nice amount of detail in it, I could always do with more (i.e. what people were wearing/eating/hearing/smelling, what did the room/house/store/scenery look like, etc.).
After all is said and done, will the beloved Demon Slayer and her fearless husband be around for a new chapter with the biker witch brigade and the cast of mostly merry misfits? You’ll have to read to find out, but I think you’ll enjoy every minute of it as much as I did. I loved the direction Fox went with this book, and if you’re already invested in the characters, you will, too.
If you’re new to the series, you don’t necessarily have to start with book one to enjoy this one, but I highly recommend you read it at some point. Fan of romantic paranormal thrillers? Welcome to your new addiction. The good news is, there are seven other full length novels, and a couple of shorter novellas to keep you busy throughout the summer. Recommended for any reader who enjoys laugh out loud humor, super steamy love scenes, mile-a-minute action, and well developed characters in the paranormal genre.
Another great biker witch book!
Another great biker witch book!
Angie Fox has done it again! One more great installation staring our favorite characters- the daring Lizzie, gorgeous Dimitri, the adorable Pirate and all of the zany biker witches. I knew I was in for an entertaining ride as soon as the spell jars and the raccoon liver came out! Lizzie comes home to visit her parents after all her adventures only to realize that some things will never be the same and her two worlds collide. Will Lizzie go against her better judgment and ask for help from her old friend from New Orleans? Will Lizzie and Dimitri offend the their neighbors with their pda?
If you haven’t read any of the biker witch series, I would suggest starting with the Accidental Demon Slayer. This is a fun paranormal book series full of magic, humor, mystery, romance, and entertaining characters.
Yay! Lizzie and the biker witches are back!
This is What To Expect When Your Demon Slayer Is Expecting written by Angie Fox. I love every book in this series! Each one seems to get better and better! It is so fun to back alongside Lizzie, Dimitri, Pirate and the Red Skulls. It’s been a while since I got to spend time with my old friends, and I’ve missed them terribly. When Lizzie’s Mom gets into trouble, will Lizzie, Dimitri and the biker witches be able to save her? How far will Lizzie go to try? How much convincing will it take for Dimitri and Grandma to agree to let her do what she feels is necessary? Will they all have to learn to live without each other? Angie Fox will keep you glued to your book from beginning to end!
The best Demon Hunter story yet!
Love, love, loved this story. I just want to make sure this review doesn’t include any spoilers.
“Lizzie, the Demon Slayer, is on her way home to visit her mom who’s planned a surprise birthday party for Lizzie’s husband. Unfortunately, a demon got to her mom before Lizzie could get there.
To save her possessed mom, Lizzie must find a rare spell ingredient so her biker witch grandma and friends can dislodge the demon by using a potion.
In another setback, the potion doesn’t work. So Lizzie makes a deal with an evil entity to save her mom. That backfires and the entity not only possesses Lizzie, but now wants her baby.
How Lizzie, her griffin shapeshifter husband, her biker witch grandma and family succeed in saving Lizzie and her family makes for a twisty-turning, intense, and very interesting tale.
As always, Angie Fox has presented us with a truly marvelous story that entertains and makes us wish it wouldn’t end.”
