"A resolutely tough cancer survivor winds up battling more than just the opposing team when she goes out for roller derby and comes face to face with supernatural enemies in this fast-paced, often funny offering about demon hunters . . . a paranormal adventure with both style and heart (on wheels)."--"Kirkus Reviews
"It reads almost like a lost episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" at times, complete with character sass and kick-butt moves . . . a fun read with plenty of action and heart."--"VOYA
Casey kicked cancer's ass. Now a demon wants to kick hers. . . .
Casey hates being known as the girl who survived cancer. She wants people to treat her like her old self, fearless and strong. And after a creepy encounter with a crazy guy in an alley, Casey is all about reclaiming her power.
So when she has a chance to try out for the Apocalypsies roller derby team, she jumps on it. Being a derby girl would prove that she doesn t need anybody's pity. It doesn t hurt that Michael, the team manager, is almost unnaturally hot. Which makes sense when Casey finds out that he's not human.
Michael's got a secret: he trains demon hunters. That crazy guy in the alley? Demon. And the fact that Casey went head to head with evil and lived makes her a threat to demonkind. Casey thought she d already fought and won the battle of her lifetime. But it's only beginning. . . .
Part heartwarming, part tough-as-nails heroine, and part hilarity make "Demon Derby" all-around amazing. Elana Johnson, author of "Possession, Surrender, " and "Abandon"
"Demon Derby" may just be the most fun you can have without roller skates. Stacey Jay, author of "Juliet Immortal" and "Romeo Redeemed"
With the strongest, snarkiest, kick-buttingest heroine I ve ever met, "Demon Derby" is an original, fast-paced adventure ride that will make you laugh, cry, and beg for more. Gretchen McNeil, author of "3:59, Ten, " and "Possess"
