Hi everyone! Today I’m here to host my spot on the Slay On Tour blog tour. I’ll be sharing a double review of both books in the Slay series so far. Don’t forget to add these books to your own shelves and check out the other stops on the tour for more reviews and content from author Kim Curran!
My Rating: ★★★★
These books are like nothing I have EVER read before. They are so much fun and I couldn’t put them down. In fact I devoured both of them within 48 hours.
The premise of these books is based on Slay, a world famous boy band who conceal a rather big secret: they are demon slayers! Whilst most of the world don’t realise that demons are actually real, our five leading boys track down demons and save the world one slaying at a time whilst hiding behind their celebrity facade. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with JD, Tom, Niv, Zek and Connor and together I think they are the perfect combination for the demon slaying band.
In the first book, Slay, we meet Milly whose life is suddenly turned totally upside down when a demon possesses her famous opera singing mother. All of a sudden the world’s most famous boyband are in her house and the next thing she knows she is on their tour bus learning all about what goes on behind closed doors. I adore Milly. She holds no punches and is a great leading lady. It was interesting to see the dynamics between the close knit male friendships start to change with Milly on board and I really adored the sparks of romance you start to see in this book.
In Slay On Tour we are back with the band and Milly as they continue their demon slaying adventures only this time we are in Japan! Not only are Slay up against some pretty tricky demons, they also have some pop band rivalry. Yet again this book is packed with as much (if not more) adventure than the first one, there are some sombre moments but also lots of laugh out louds too.
I’m not going into too much detail as I really think it’s best to go into these books without knowing too much. If you’re looking for a fun read with an interesting plot, charming characters and a lot of action then these really are for you. I flew through them both and loved every second. They are super fun but also manage to deal with some interesting themes along the way.
Personally I am really hoping there will be a third book (I think there is) because I can’t wait for my adventures with Milly, Gail and Slay. Also, how GORGEOUS are these covers? Serious heart eye emojis.
Huge thanks to the lovely Stevie at Usborne for asking me to be part of the tour and providing my advanced copies in exchange of a fair and honest review.

The important question: Do you think you would make a good demon slayer?
