The Art of Darkness

Carpe Demon

July 4th, 2008 by Cobwebs

What would happen if Buffy the Vampire Slayer got married, moved to the suburbs and became a stay-at-home mom? That’s the plot of the Carpe Demon series of books by Julie Kenner. Sequels include California Demon and Demons are Forever. Har har har.

This is a rather strange mix of “vampire slayer” and “mommy lit”–I didn’t realize that the intersection between Buffy fans and soccer moms was sufficiently great to market a whole series of books toward them– but the books have pretty decent reviews and look like fun.

If you’re looking for a beach read (assuming you don’t burst into flames in the sunlight), these would probably be an excellent choice.
