Rebekah “Beck” Damian runs a demonoid bar where everyone’s welcome—even a reformed flesheater who’s strictly vegetarian, a musical ghost who’s looking for a piano bar, and a feline harbinger of doom named Wampus Kitty who’s scaring the customers. So when a big strapping demon-hunter walks into the bar, Beck knows it’s not the end of the world. She’ll treat him like any other customer.
If only she could. Conall Dalvahni is the toughest, meanest, sexiest demon-hunter Beck’s ever seen—and she’s finding it hard to hide her attraction. As far as Conall’s concerned, the feeling is mutual. But how can he trust a beautiful half-demon babe like Beck—when her demonic friends have the perfect weapon to destroy every hunter on earth?
The adage “don’t judge a book by its cover’ couldn’t be more true than when it comes to DEMON HUNTING IN A DIVE BAR which is nothing like the cheesy cover. This turned out to be a surprisingly hilarious, fun and fast read. The dialogue is witty and sharp with tons of quirky southernisms which helped enhance the swamplands feel of the New Orleans dive bar Beck owns and her community of truly weird people.
One of the aspects of this world I enjoyed was the way half-demons are explained (possession of a human for a while) and how this affects Beck and the rest of the half-demon populace. The secondary characters are given great details too, especially my favorite, Tommy, a former vegetarian-now zombie who is denying his growing hunger for brains. Like Tommy, just about every character has some crazy quirk which gets showcased in at least one of many off the wall moments of DEMON HUNTING IN A DIVE BAR.
One of the characters I wasn’t too big of a fan of was Beck’s long lost twin brother. His existence wasn’t explained very well, so he came off as more obnoxious than evil most of the time. On the other hand, the romance between Beck and Conall is steamy and funny especially when Beck has to act as translator for various things Conall is not familiar with in this world. In fact I loved every time Conall and his demon hunting brothers ventured out to interact with humans who don’t know about demons.
The author has described her series as ‘Southern fried paranormal romance’, and she’s dead on. DEMON HUNTING IN A DIVE BAR has an excellent mix of wacky characters with an intriguing plot that will have readers smiling all the way to the end. As of now there are no details for the fourth book in the Demon Hunting series but with the cliffhanger ending, I am eagerly anticipating the next book.
