Review: Carpe Demon



Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner

What an absolute hoot of a book!

Imagine if Buffy got married, had kids and become a domestic goddess, all while never telling anyone about her former "job". Imagine that, and you have the basis for this fun novel.

Kate Conner hasn't been a demon hunter for 15 years, trading in holy water for carpools and dinner parties, but when a demon crashes through her window, she's back in the game. The book combines a bit of the supernatural with everyday occurances (like babysitting duties), a mystery, characters who could be good or bad, and a lot of humor.

I tore through this book, and absolutely loved the lighthearted tone combined with the "killing demons" part. Highly recommended!
