A warrior, a demon, and the girl next door . . .
Addy Corwin is a florist with an attitude. A bad attitude, or so her mama says, because she's not looking for a man. Mama's wrong. Addy has looked. There's just not much to choose from in Hannah, her small Alabama hometown. Until Brand Dalvahni shows up, a supernaturally sexy, well-built hunk of a warrior from--well, not from around here, that's for sure. Mama thinks he might be European or maybe even a Yankee. Brand says he's from another dimension.
Addy couldn't care less where he's from. He's gorgeous. Serious muscles. Disturbing green eyes. Brand really gets her going. Too bad he's a whack job. Says he's come to rescue her from a demon. Puh-leeze. But right after Brand shows up, strange things start to happen. Dogs talk and reanimated corpses stalk the quiet streets of Hannah. Her mortal enemy, Meredith, otherwise known as the Death Starr, breaks out in a severe and inexplicable case of butt boils. Addy might not know what's going on, but she definitely wants a certain sexy demon hunter by her side when it all goes down . . .
Addy is making her nightly stress relieving run with her lab Dooley. The quiet park in the gated community has never felt like it does tonight. Is it the impending thunderstorm? Dooley is a big wuss when it comes to thunder. Color Addy beyond surprised when instead of cowering from the thunder Dooley has her hackles raised, a low rumbling growl sounding in her chest. Suddenly Dooley breaks free, running for the stand of trees that have taken on a decidedly sinister cast. Addy takes off into the trees after Dooley and the beginning of the end of her heretofore normal existence. Life is fixing to get beyond strange for Addy very quickly.
Brand is a Dalvahni warrior. The Dalvahni hunt the djegrali or demons. Brand followed this djegrali to this wood. He fought off two djegralis but wasn’t in time to prevent an attack upon the mortal female. Now he must protect her. The djegrali has marked her and will return. Brand will be present and prepared when the demon seeks Addy out. Brand is clueless about what he’s getting himself into attempting to protect Addy.
Anything that makes me laugh until I cry is a good thing. Demon Hunting in Dixie is flat out fun and caused that to happen on more than one occasion. I don’t think you need to be Southern to get the humor but it does make it more personal because I can put names to these characters. They feel real, like old friends. Lexi George knows her southernisms and people. The pace is fast, the flow excellent and it reads quickly. Addy has managed to get herself in quite a predicament and you can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next. You just know it’s bound to be a doozy, whatever it is. Despite the humor there are some scary moments. Demons aren’t fun or funny and there are a few appropriately yucky demon occurrences. Demon Hunting in Dixie is a well balanced blend of romance, humor and just the right touch of horror. I can’t wait for the next installment. I hope it comes out really soon…girlfriend really needs some closure and I need updates on certain people and events. The laughing until I cry and my stomach hurts doesn’t hurt either. Helps a lot to be honest and I’m gonna need a fix sooner rather than later!
