Review: Slay on Tour by Kim Curran

About the book:

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

After Milly’s rescued from mortal danger by the hottest band on the planet, she hardly expects to join them… But now she’s headed to Tokyo, ready to track down a hellraising demon. And when SLAY are invited on tour with a super-cool band of holographic girls, it’s Milly’s turn to step into the spotlight.

Except strange things start happening on the SLAY tour train. Suddenly it seems it’s not just SLAY’s fans following their every move, but something very, very evil. Play time is over… Now it’s SLAY time.

Review by Katy Haye:

Kim Curran is one of my few “auto-buy” authors, and she’s at the top of her game with Slay on Tour.

The band – with Milly – are on tour in Japan and as ever they come face-to-face with terrifying mythological monsters. The characters are wonderful and I’m in love with the whole of the band. What I enjoyed most is that the band members are all changed by what happened in Slay (what do you mean, you haven’t read Slay? It’s excellent: check out my review, grab a copy and settle down now). There are some really satisfying character arcs unfolding before my eyes.

And the writing is so lively and vibrant I felt as though I was really there with them. There was a real roller-coaster of emotion: some laugh-aloud moments; some tense gasps, and an excellent reveal as well as a fabulous resolution that made me want to cheer. I loved it; can’t wait for more.

And something slightly different from me this week, a limerick to celebrate the book:

Milly and the boys are touring,
Life with Slay is never boring,
Demons beware,
For Slay have a flare,
Fighting evil they won’t be caught snoring.

Loved it; highly recommended.

Katy Haye’s Princess Witch series is progressing. Book 1, Dragon Thief  and sequel Dragon Flight are both out now. If you like forbidden magic, dragons and a romance strewn with obstacles, this is the series for you!
