Lexi George’s Ansgar’s Do’s and Don’ts for visiting Hannah, Alabama from DEMON HUNTING IN THE DEEP SOUTH

Do bring weapons.  Hannah is rotten with demons.

Bring a djeval flaskke or two for transporting captured demons to the Pit.

Watch out for demon-possessed humans.  Hannah is rife with the unfortunate creatures.  You can detect them by their terrible stench and their liquid black eyes.

Hire an interpreter.  Your Dalvahni translator will be of little use in this demesne.  The accent of the locals, their fondness for exaggeration and euphemism, and their odd slang makes intelligible conversation nigh unto impossible.

Purchase modern raiment else your warrior’s garb draws notice.

By all means, partake of the victuals offered at the Sweet Shop Café and Grill.  Mistress Viola Williams is the best cook in seven dimensions.

Expect the unexpected.  Anything can happen in Hannah.  To date, a moving statue, a talking dog, any number of fairies, sand people, a man eating Chihuahua, a ghoul, a zombie, at least four ghosts, a horned demi-god with a predilection for running about the place in the nude, a wide assortment of shifters, a rampaging dragon, trolls, and a werewolf have been sighted.

Keep an eye out for purple-eyed demonoids, the half human, and half demon offspring of possessed humans.  Like wizards, their talents and power vary.  Certain of their ilk—in particular, the beautiful, female variety—have proven hazardous to a warrior’s heart and peace of mind.

If you operate one of the modern conveyances known locally as automobiles, keep your hands on the wheel and pretend to drive the thing.  Magic makes the humans nervous and the sight of an unmanned vehicle moving of its own accord will undoubtedly raise questions.  You do not wish to be in violation of the Directive Against Conspicuousness.

Swim in the river at your own risk—a behemoth fish by the name of Gilbert lurks in the depths.

Avoid chocolate.  It is the only known substance intoxicating to a Dalvahni warrior.  If you must imbibe, be prepared to sing silly songs and lose your dignity.

Above all else, do not fall in love.  If, perchance, you succumb to this odd, bewildering affliction, know that it is, most likely, permanent.  In the event of such a disaster, I offer these words of wisdom:  do not trifle with thy wench lest she smite thy codpiece.

One copy of DEMON HUNTING IN THE DEEP SOUTH by Lexi George

 

Published on August 1st 2012 by Kensington Publishing Corp.

Description:

Demon-slayers, evil forces, and an uber-bitchy ghost…

Hotter Than A Demon In Panties

Evie Douglass doesn’t know what’s worse—the demons secretly infesting her small Alabama hometown…or human belle-from-hell Meredith Starr Peterson, who’s made her life miserable since high school. But when the “Death Starr” is brutally murdered and Evie is the number-one suspect, she’s suddenly besieged by the evil-not-dead-enough and Meredith’s furious specter. The only way she can clear her name is to get out from under demon hunter Ansgar’s grim protection. He’s blond, breathtaking, and the most lethal of all his kin, but after years of teasing, Evie is wary of anyone who swears her plus-size self is beautiful. However, having Ansgar all over her is sparking outrageous powers Evie didn’t know she had. And she’ll face any ultimate evil to keep this sexy slayer in this dimension and in her bed for all eternity…

  2. S.J. Drum

    I loved the first book. Can’t wait to read this one. I lived in the South for years and really enjoy the southern flavor captured in Lexi’s writing.

  3. erinf1

    thanks for such a fun post! I’ve been dying to read this series!!! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  4. Caty R

    I like how the Behemoth fish is named Gilbert.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Lexi George

      Caty R., Gilbert hasn’t made his appearance in the books yet, but he’s lurking in the back of my mind. Can’t wait to write about him.

  5. Pat

    Lexi, have you ever imagined yourself demon hunting? How’d you think of this story?

    • Lexi George

      Pat, I will tell you a secret: I’m a big chicken, so NO! I can’t imagine me as a demon hunter! Actually, the story idea started as a writing exercise and sort of grew from there. It’s been great fun!

  6. Heather

    I’m new to your books and I’m excited to get started on them. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. justpeachy36

    I always find so many great authors and series here. This one is also new to me but I’m excited to start reading.

  8. Viki S.

    I haven’t read this series yet but it sounds like fun. What is your favorite genre to read and has it changed since you became an author?

    • Lexi George

      Hi, Viki! I love all things romance, contemporary and historical, but I also enjoy a good fantasy series, too. I love the Charlaine Sookie Stackhouse books and Janet Evanovich makes me chuckle. Right now, I’m reading George R. R. Martin’s A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, and loving it! I love books that feature an ensemble cast, which is probably why I write that way myself!

  9. June

    Avoid chocolate? I don’t think I can live without it for very long. There are times that you just need a little chocolate, lol.

    • Lexi George

      June, I was searching around for something unusual that my warriors would discover they are vulnerable too, and thought about chocolate, something I personally adore!

  10. Barbara Elness

    This sounds like such a great book, I’m looking forward to reading it. Maybe I’ll learn something about living in the south, since I’m a Westerner living in Florida. :D

  11. Victoria Zumbrum

      I know, right, Erin? They don’t have to avoid it . . . it just makes them tiddly, and they aren’t used to anything affecting them! Drunk demon hunter=fun.

  17. Bethany C.

    Whoa, quite a number of supernatural ‘races’ here! Any kind of supernatural you haven’t written about yet but would like to?

    • Lexi George

      Haven’t tried vampires and I’m dying to write Elves. The Legolas from LOTR kind, not Santa’s little helpers. ;-)

    • Lexi George

      Glad you think so, Lisa. They say “write what you know,” and I’m from the South, so it seemed like a good fit for me!

  18. Lexi George

    Thanks everyone for stopping by! Out of town taking my oldest back to college but will check with y’all tomorrow.

    • Lexi George

      Thanks, Donnas! I’m excited about book two. Evie was a big change from the heroine in the first book, but I really enjoyed writing her!

  22. HollyB

    This sounds like tons of fun!! I’m a Southern girl myself and I don’t think I could live anywhere else, to be honest. Even if we do have lots of demons down here :) I’m in NC and my in-laws are actually in AL (Mobile). Wonder if they know about the goings-on in Hannah?!?! Thanks for the giveaway! I look forward to reading this.

  23. Michelle Bledsoe

    I just adored Demon Hunting in Dixie. I never laughed so hard or said OMG I know someone like that…LOL
    I gave the book to my MIL and she said that you could of used her mother as a role model for Abby’s mother(and how many times have you been told that???)
    Thanks for giving us more fun in Dixie….

  26. Sheryl Nyary

    I loved the first book in this series. I like to read anything Paranormal and it’s a plus that it’s set in the South, where I live!!!

  27. Lexi George

    Sheryl, so glad you liked the first one! There’s something sultry and mysterious about the South that lends itself to paranormal, I think!

  28. Brenda Demko
