Book Review – Slay by Kim Curran

slay.jpgMeet SLAY – SLAY do two things and they do them well: they play killer music and they slay killer demons.

When Milly, the lonely daughter of a world-famous opera singer, arrives home to discover that her mum has been taken over by something very evil, she finds herself in mortal danger. But the last people she expects to rescue her are the hottest boy band on the planet…

Enter SLAY: playing kickass gigs in the spotlight, and saving the world from demons in the shadows… Suddenly, Milly’s on the road with JD, Tom, Niv, Zek and Connor, racing against the clock to stop the demons who killed her mum… One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be a hell of a show!

Brilliantly cute and fun! Slay is the perfect mix of supernatural and boy bands, and is exactly what I hoped it would be: up beat, made me hum along to imaginary rock pop tunes (I’m thinking McFly!), with demon slaying on the side!

It’s also a great modern / urban fantasy with a light hearted sort-of-contemporary side. You know, considering they lose family and friends to demons etc… 😂

I really liked that we got enough background about all the boys and their life on the road without it being info overkill. I loved all their individual stories, especially with the way they obviously fit together as a family. And obviously I love Gail, she rocks! I also like the way Milly fits in to the story and gives it purpose – her story stops it being just gigs and random demon hunting. It sounded fun when it was like that, but having a specific demon to chase and investigate worked really well.

Slay is not too deep and meaningful but it is absolutely fun and perfect if you’re in a slump and want something to get you back into reading. I can’t wait for the next installment.
