Smoking Hot

Diary of a Fire Demon

by Amy Mah


Smoking Hot (the diary of a fire demon)

Swapping bodies with a young female demon had not been part of the planned vacation.

Nor was having to attend a demonic high school for the magically gifted.

When the most magical thing you could do was set your own underwear on fire.

Life was not going to be easy, even less so with a painful tail that everyone trod on.

Owning a magic sword that always tried to look up your skirt when fighting was not helpful.

But then nor was having a telepathic diary that corrected your thinking instead of your spelling.

In this this book we start out with a bog standard "Demon tricks human into allowing access to our world" type story but instead of a normal demon possession the human/demon in question merely switch bodies.

The demon then immediately goes off to use all her hot water (from the "Magic fountain") and snog her boyfriend...And possibly the neighbors... "That lip sucking thing looks like fun" <--Says demon.

It's at this point we switch fully over to the new demon that was Alyce our human protagonist just in time for her to sit then stand on her new tail,

and with hardly a chance to say "ow" the three sisters she never had arrive herd her into a carriage and ship her off to some kind of cross between Hogwarts (as is mentioned by the protagonist),

some old British girls academy of learning, and that bootcamp from the "Starship troopers" movie.

Thus begins her (and by proxy our) journey through the demon school system. We learn right alongside her what it means to be a four year old Fire demon in this new world and what fun ride it is...

For us that is, for her it's a constant barrage of life threatening terror interspaced with periods of complete and utter confusion. This is not helped by the two fold puberty she finds herself in,

both as a human getting used to her new demon body, and as a growing fire demon just coming into her powers. All in all its a good read that,

while it may not shake the foundations of literacy it does manage a surprise or two along the way, and brings a smile to ones face. Generally entertaining throughout.

I love a good fantasy story and this one explores territory well off the beaten path. The demon world in this story is wonderfully crafted, similar to ours in some ways, and completely different in many others.

For example, a world without water, any water at all, has unique character. I was also quite pleased with the way the characters developed over time, all of them surprisingly deeper than I expected.

On the other hand, the tone of the writing was irritating at times. The target audience is clearly young adult. For example, I feel the word "mega" should be quietly kidnapped, brought out to high seas, then dropped overboard attached to a heavy weight. Sadly, it showed up 23 wince worthy times. Still not docking a star though,

for want of the next book in the series.

Swapping bodies with a female fire demon is not going to be easy. Alyce finds herself in a demonic high school for the magically gifted.

Life was not going to be easy when you set your underwear on fire, stepped on your own tail and had a sword that looked up your skirt.

Amy Mah takes you into a magical world that is kind of a cross between Hogwarts and Star Wars revisited.

Her usual snarky humor takes you on a roller coaster ride through the year of magic school until the girls go into their dark hibernation.

After reading Amy's other works, I had to see what she was up to now. She does not disappoint. After reaching the end of the book, I can only hope there will be a second in the series.

If you have a liking for the strange and unusual, I highly recommend this book. This review originated on goodreads.

Normally I don't give reviews but this book definetly needs a sequel. Very engaging story that world built quite nicely from the first word to the last.
