Goodreads book review: Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner

Carpe Demon (Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom, #1)Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I picked this up after hearing Julie Kenner talking about it on the Smart Bitches Trashy Books podcast. Demon Hunting Soccer Mom. I love the idea!

Kate Connor is a retired demon hunter, but there’s a whole load of demons around and SOMEONE has to do something about it. Turns out that someone is Kate.
I like the juxtaposition between domesticity/ parenthood and the drama of demon fighting. It’s a good, light hearted read. I figured out who the baddie was (and the thing about Eddie and holy water) relatively early, but it was still good fun.

I dithered about giving this four stars because I love the premise so much, but ended up with 3 instead because I picked up the second book (I bought a box set) and thought… not right now, thanks. Is there a 3.5 stars option? No? Ah… okay then.

Brilliant premise. Good fun read.
