Lizzie Brown found out on her thirtieth birthday that she is the next Demon Slayer. Going from a preschool teacher to a demon slayer overnight has thrown her for a loop, and her tidy little world of always being organized having everything written down to flying by the seat of her pants. Ever since then she has tried to do the right thing, but she isnít quite sure she is up to the task. She still has some of her hang-ups, she hasnít quite gotten used to the extended family she has now with the Red Skulls, her Grandma, as she calls her, and Dimitri.

Instead of going to Greece with Dimitri, they are headed to Las Vegas to help save her Uncle Phil from a succubus. Along the way, it seems that the DIM, Department of Intramagical Matters, knows what Lizzie has done and has given her tickets because she isnít a licensed demon slayer. No one told her she had to be licensed and being Lizzie, she sets off to get her license on the way to saving Phil in Vegas.

There are more things happening in Vegas than anyone in the DIM knows about, they think they have an idea but they donít. It takes Lizzie meeting a succubus in a night club, a hunter, and learning just what a succubus can do to a griffin and reporting her finds to a fairy before all hell breaks loose on the hotel where they are staying.

Lizzie is, well, Lizzie. She thinks she has to do it all on her own without the aide of her now friends, Grandma, boyfriend Dimitri, and anyone else that is trying to help her. Can she learn in time to rely on more than just herself and the three truths of demon slayers: Look to the Outside, Accept the Universe, and Sacrifice Yourself before it is too late?

Angie Fox has done it once again with The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers. Lizzie Brown is quirky, fun and finding out she is more than she first thought or ever wanted to be. We canít forget about her sidekick terrier, Pirate. She can hear him talk and boy, does he talk. He also seems to make the most unusual of friends. Not only is Pirate a riot, but so are the Red Skulls, Ant Eater, Frieda, and the rest of the bunch of biker witches. I canít wait for the next story of Lizzie, Dimitri, Pirate, Grandma and, of course, the Red Skulls. You will want to read the first book, The Accidental Demon Slayer, to find out all the scrapes this bunch of characters get into and somehow manage to still make it out alive and in one piece.
