Book Review: Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar by Lexi George

Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar
Author: Lexi George
Series: Demon Hunting, Book 3
Publication: Brava (January 29, 2013)

Description: Demons, shifters, zombies: You don't have to go to hell, but you can't stay here. . .

It's Last Call On Earth.

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 awful 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? With all the sparks flying between Beck and Conall, it's hard to tell who's the predator and who's the prey. Either way, love is hell--and impossible to resist. . .

My Thoughts: The third Demon Hunting book lacked the over-the-top humor of the first two books but had a great story. Beck is a demonoid who was raised in her father's bar by a shape-shifting friend of her father's. Now the bar is hers and it has become a haven for the kith (supernaturals) who live in the area. It has also become a hang out for Connal Dalvahni who is the captain of all the Dalvahni. His attraction to Beck is somewhat baffling to him since he is a demon hunter and she is part demon.

The plot of this one revolves around the return of Beck's hitherto unknown twin brother who had been the slave of demons since he was a small child. He has come to Hannah with them to raise an army of kith. Beck and the Dalvahni need to foil that plan.

Some of the interesting side characters in this one include a vegetarian zombie and a piano playing ghost. There is also a cat named Wampus Kitty who is supposed to be a harbinger of doom but is actually an eight-year-old demonoid girl who has been surviving on her own for two years.

I liked this story but I missed the humor of the earlier books. Beck is a more serious character. The ending leaves room for more books. I hope to get a chance to read them.

Favorite Quote:
He wasn't wearing a tie. No surprise there. Somehow, demon hunters and neckties didn't go together.

Swords, mayhem, and evisceration, yeah. Neckties...not so much.

His ragged dark hair gleamed in the light, and his eyes were black as midnight—blacker, like the space between the stars.
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
