Kenzie Sutcliffe can finally state that she understands the saying "when one door closes another one opens," with conviction. Well, if she replaces "door" with "portal."

Not too long ago, Kenzie had accidentally spilled her acne medication down her bathtub drain, which opened the portal to the demon world, leaving her with an obnoxious demon and a big headache. In order to not have more demons enter, Kenzie had to find a way to close it before it was too late. Kenzie finally realized that the drains from her bathtub, which ran down through the walls in the kitchen, was what she had to get rid of.

After driving through the garage and into the kitchen, Kenzie thought that she had finally closed the portal. Unfortunately Levi, who still lived with Kenzie and who was still a nuisance, told her that just by closing that portal another just so happens to open. All she has to do is close this next one. Sounds easy, just not exactly, since Kenzie isn't too sure where this new portal is located. She just hopes that she doesn't have to resort to damaging even more of her house, especially since she has no way of telling her parents the truth. (Like her parents would ever buy the whole demon portal excuse.)

Aside from her demon troubles, Kenzie must deal with parents who aren't too sure why their daughter would drive the car into the kitchen. A whole new set of rules are now in place that include doing whatever her parents ask, not getting her driver's license until she turns 18, and having her time restricted with her hot and sweet boyfriend, who questions Levi's motives. Then there is her best friend, who is in love with the demon, and a cute yet suspicious cat that appeared out of nowhere.

Kenzie Sutcliffe is sure that her life won't be getting any better anytime soon. Of course, no one ever said that being a demon slayer was easy work.

Move over vampires, the demons are in town and they won't give up without a laugh. A long-awaited sequel, SPEED DEMON does not disappoint. Erin Lynn continues the momentum she had going since the first novel. One would wonder why Kenzie would view her life so negatively when she has two, even three guys wanting her (and then they remember the demon debacle). ( )

When we last read about sixteen-year-old Kenzie Sutcliffe she had just closed a demon portal in her shower drain by running the family minivan in the pipes. Unfortunately it created a minivan sized hole in her kitchen wall. Now she's not only grounded but won't be getting her drivers license until she's eighteen.

On day one of the kitchen reconstruction she's so creeped out by the large guy working on the wall she tries to take her breakfast cereal elsewhere in the house but her mom won't let her. She sneaks off with her cereal and a Diet Coke to sit in the minivan. When she accidentally sprays her drink on the radio another demon portal pops open. That's when Levi, the "good demon" who's been staying with her family, points out that there are actually 5 demon portals and Kenzie has to figure out how to close them all permanently, with no help from him.

I definitely recommend reading the first book, Demon Envy, before picking up Speed Demon. A majority of the story references book one and it has the background on why Levi is with the family. I enjoyed Speed Demon much more than I did Demon Envy. Kenzie's character is a little more realistic in this one and the storyline was cute.

I like the way Kenzie's character deals with Levi and the new demon from the portal not to mention her regular teenage drama which includes boyfriend and best friend trouble. The book is also a set up for the next book which I will definitely be reading. I recommend this for teens and anyone else who loves YA books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425223663, Paperback)

Kenzie?s on the fast track? to trouble.

Guys can be annoying, but the demonic kind are the worst?

That is how Kenzie Sutcliffe felt about Levi. He shot out of Kenzie?s shower, a.k.a. the demon hole, not too long ago. It was hard for Kenzie to close the portal?it involved her driving the family?s minivan into the kitchen. And what thanks does she get for that? She?s grounded, not allowed to drive, and getting chauffeured around by a demon whose driver?s license is dubious at best. Plus, the demon tells her, when one portal closes?another one opens?

Even though Levi can be a pain, Kenzie just can?t let the other demons drag him back to hell. Guess that means it?s up to her to save the day?again!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:13:34 -0400)

Grounded for having used her mother's minivan to close a demon portal, sixteen-year-old Kenzie must spend even more time with demon Levi, who informs her that when she closed one portal she opened another and it is up to her to save the day--again.
