Megan promises listeners to her new radio call-in show that she’ll “slay their personal demons,” and they believe her. So do the personal demons.  Although she doesn’t know it, Megan is the only human without a demon on her shoulder. This, coupled with her psychic abilities, makes her a valuable weapon for any demon “family” that can gain her allegiance. It also makes her a serious threat – not just the personal demons, but to a soul-sucker known as the Accuser who has an old score to settle.

Megan and her allies – a demon lover who both protects and seduces her with devilish intensity, a witch with poor social skills, and three cockney guard demons – have to deal not only with the personal demons, but a soul-sucker, ghosts of Megan’s past, and a reporter who threatens to destroy Megan’s career!

Megan is a psychologist that hosts a radio show where everyone calls in for advice. She is expected, by her boss, to always use the tag line “How can I slay your personal demons?” which she hates. Also, she is a psychic. What she discovers soon after is that there are indeed personal demons and they believe she is out there to get them; now they are after her. These personal demons sit on people’s shoulders, urging them to do something wrong in order to gain control over humans. In this book we have different demons, zombies, and even a reporter named Brian and a sexy hottie-hot-hottie, oh-so-flirty and tempting demon –Dante, who assigns her three demon bodyguards.

I first heard of this book by a friend of mine who knows I love to read things that have to do with demons, and Kane’s depiction of them is quite fascinating. It was hard to put that book down, especially when you have homework waiting for you, but word of advice: it is not a book you can read on the commute, sexy times*wink wink.* Put that on a bowl and blend with wit and snarkiness: Yumm!! Tasty delight. 

Kane’s character development is great, you get them, and it is not confusing. The main character, Megan, is an A+ heroine. She fights ‘em all, and she is a girl at the same time. She does not let herself become a play toy for anyone, and is fairly stubborn [which is a plus, always.] Dante, the demon that is helping her is one hell of a drool worthy fire demon [hot much?] and the sexy scenes… Well, let’s just say that sexy might be an understatement. The demon bodyguards? They were the best characters [right after Dante, of course.] I am not going to talk much about them, but just say that every scenethat they are in is enjoyable.

The story flowed nicely, and the plot gave a lot of unexpected turns. The action scenes were amazing. It felt like watching a movie in my head while reading it. Not an overload of details, but a good balance. It was nice to read, and kept me up all night because I had to finish it. Right after I finished I ordered book #2 [which still hasn’t come yet –ahem ahem] and I cannot wait to read it.
