This is a summary review for the first three books in Lexi George’s Demon Hunting series. The books are set in the deep South, Alabama to be exact, and the author is quite well versed in the lingo and the culture. It’s traditional good versus evil, with the storyline evolving and…mutating with each book. The Dalvahni hotness that arrives in town to hunt djegrali terrorizing the local populace stumbles upon the delightful and mostly human females…and that is the focal point of the stories. I definitely enjoyed the writing style and author’s voice as well as her sense of humor. The characters were adorable and infuriating by turn, and the plots were unique and slightly unhinged. The author writes the heroines more realistically, which is much appreciated and made it easier for me to connect with the female leads. As paranormal romances go, these were not heavy on the darkness and remained pleasantly entertaining throughout. The books ranged at a little over 300 pages each, and the author worked the detail and wordscaped so well that the pages flew by.
Demon Hunting in Dixie (Demon Hunting series, #1)
Her blush deepened. “What a sweet thing to say, even though I know you are only being nice.” Ansgar gave her a smoldering look. “I assure you, Evangeline, I am neither sweet nor nice.” – Demon Hunting in Dixie, Lexi George
This story was about Alabama native and florist Addy Corwin and her run in with demon hunter Brand Dalvahni. Addy is suffering from an overly bossy mother who is more focused on society’s feelings than those of her children. When she meets up with something on the far side of strange while walking her cheese-loving pooch, Brand decides to become her shadow. As the town strange starts heating up, so does the chemistry between Addy and the prickly warrior hunk. But will the juice be worth the squeeze if he leaves town after his job is over?
Demon Hunting in the Deep South (Demon Hunting series, #2)
This wouldn’t do. She needed to get a firm grip on her hoochitude. – Demon Hunting in the Deep South, Lexi George
Evie Douglass is just trying to live her slightly strange wallflower life when she gets framed for the murder of a society darling and evil hosebeast. Pretty alone in life now, Evie is stunned when a strangely familiar and majorly drool-worthy hunk pops on to the scene to act as her protector. Playing the role of Brand Dalvahni’s brother, Ansgar intends only to protect Evie and avoid giving in to his more base impulses…and hope that she does not remember their steamy past. Will they survive the enemy targeting Evie, or will Ansgar lose her before they even have a chance?
Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar (Demon Hunting series, #3)
A part of her, the female, horny part she generally tried to ignore, sat up and took notice when he smiled, the shameless hussy. Oh, no. She would not go there. She’d dry-hump a stump before she had anything to do with that stuck-up, sanctimonious, speciesist SOB. – Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar, Lexi George
Rebekah Damian just wants to run her demonoid-oriented bar and live in peace, but fate seems determined to mess with her plans. When Connor, leader of the Dalvahni, starts hanging around the joint and throwing sass – she knows there will be trouble. She may have to drop kick him in the face, or he may have to strangle the life out of her…either way they have to deal with what is between them or focus on the djegrali masses at the gate. Slipping up at the apex of demonic activity in the city could cost them both their lives, and so much more.
