Demons of the Rich and Famous
(Demon Whisperer #1)
by Tawni Stoke.
Supernatural possession is the new “disease” and teen exorcist Caden Butcher is the cure…
Caden Butcher, known as the whiz-kid exorcist to the stars, loves the Hollywood limelight. Or at least that’s what he wants people to believe so he can earn enough cash from his high profile exorcisms to take care of his ailing father. The problem is, not everyone’s happy with Caden’s star status, particularly Remy Martin, a high ranking member of the International Order of Exorcists, who suspects the truth, that these Hollywood exorcisms are staged with the help of Caden’s demon BFF, Dan.
So when a real exorcism goes bad and a nasty demon jumps bodies, the crap hits the supernatural fan. The Order strips Caden of his exorcism license right before he discovers the unleashed demon is one he knows well, very well. This demon is hell bent on destroying Caden’s life and everyone else who gets in his way. Now with the help of his demon buddy, and Caden’s girlfriend Aspen Spencer, a necromancer in training, Caden must defy the Order, track down the rogue demon and send him back to hell before it’s too late.
Links to book:
I'd say for me this was a 3.75 stars. A really good book.
I jumped into it blindly because of the pretty cover (yup! it's me we are talking about, I always do that XD)
And I discovered a highly entertaining and interesting story. I love demons and reading about them but this story also surprised me with zombies.
I wasn't expecting that!
The beginning was insane lol, unique!
Totally fast paced, I devoured it in less than a day.
The writing is fresh and innovative.
The storyline, VERY ORIGINAL.
The characters were ok, I'd love to see a little more depth in them though. I'm waiting to find that in the sequel (that I'm definitely reading).
My favorites were Jezebel and Dan. I hope they'll be in the next book!
Caden was alright but there was something about him that didn't quite attracted me to him.
The end is bittersweet but that just only made me more curious about book 2.
Fast Five with Caden Butcher and Dantalion from Demons of the Rich and Famous.
I’m happy to be guesting on your blog. Today, I brought with me two characters from my book Demons of the Rich and Famous. Caden Butcher, exorcist to the stars, and his best friend, Grand Duke of Hell, Dantalion or Dan as he likes to be called. His title is all proper and such but he’s really just a reckless young man at heart, who just happens to prefer to appear looking exactly like Sid Vicious.
Welcome Caden and Dan.
Dan: Yo. I’m hungry. Anyone got a pizza?
Tawny: No, I’ll get you one later.
Dan: I could just zip out and snatch one.
Tawny: No, I’d prefer if you stayed here.
Caden: Dan, behave.
Tawny: K, I’m going to ask you five questions and you both just answer them. And remember this is PG 13, okay, Dan?
Dan: Yup, got it.
Tawny: Who is your favourite band?
Dan: Easy. Sex Pistols.
Caden: I like lots of different bands. Metallica. Rob Zombie. Papa Roach. Seether. Three Days Grace.
Tawny: What is your favourite food?
Dan: Easy. Pizza.
Caden: Pizza is top on the list, but I also like Thai food. And chicken wings.
Dan: Oh yeah, I love chicken wings. The hotter the better. Dude, remember those wings we had in Calgary? Damn! Those were almost too hot for me.
Tawny: What is your favourite animal?
Dan: Hellhounds. The bigger and meaner the better. The kind that eat cats for breakfast.
Caden: You don’t really hate Bali that much do you?
Dan: The hell I don’t.
Tawny: Moving on. What is your favourite movie?
Caden: Hmm, that’s a tough one. I really like the Resident Evil movies.
Dan: Oh hell yeah, plus Milla Jovovich is hot!
Caden: But I have to say, and I’ll probably get ribbed about it, but I really enjoyed the Harry Potter movies.
Dan: Me too! Loved them. And that Emma Watson. Hmm, I’d change my ways for her.
Tawny: Speaking of girls, do either of you have a girlfriend?
Caden: Yup. Aspen Spencer. Most beautiful awesome chick you’d ever meet.
Dan: I thought you guys broke up.
Caden: Ah, no we didn’t.
Dan: Are you sure about that?
Caden: Yeah, I’m sure. *drops gaze*
Tawny: What about you Dan? Cool guy like you must have a line up of girls.
Dan: No comment.
Caden: What about Jezebel?
Dan: I said no comment. *zips out of the room like the Flash*
Tawny: Okay, that would do it. Thanks for being here with me Caden and Dan. If anyone has any questions for either of them, I’m sure they would be happy to answer in the comment section.
Thanks for having me. You can read more about Caden and Dan in the Demons of the Rich and Famous. And learn more about me at www.tawnystokes.com
