Slay on Tour
SLAY are BACK…and this time they’re headed to Tokyo to track down another hell-raising demon. When they’re invited on tour with a super-cool band of holographic girls, SLAY find themselves whisked off around Japan – until strange things start happening on their tour train. Suddenly it seems it’s not just SLAY’s fans following their every move…QUOTES ON BOOK 1, SLAY: “It's so much fun! Remember when YA was fun and it wasn't just people like me preaching at you about things you already agree with? Slay is boyband fights evil and it's going to be huge and you're going to love it.” Patrick Ness, author of A Monster Calls “Gloriously absurd, fast-paced summer read.” The Metro “Boys as swoon-worthy as One Direction saving the world from evil? Sign me up!” Amy Alward, author of The Potion Diaries “Kick-ass, funny, laugh-out-loud book about a boy band that slays demons! It’s classic cheesiness and that’s the best thing about it. Slay is one of those that is like guilty pleasure with a mixture of Mission Impossible action and gadgets, with the twist and badass of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Never Judge a Book by its Cover blog

Slay on Tour Review

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Slay are back and still super fun!! I dare anyone to read this series and not enjoy it. I really liked how Japanese mythology wove well into the story - I’ve read a couple of other Japanese inspired books recently and it was nice to see similar elements. I also loved the holograms, even if I couldn’t understand why you would go see a holographic band play live ;) - that actually seemed very Japanese, l loved it.

Slay on tour is fun and lively and full of demons. In other words, brilliant. Milly fits in well, but I like most her decision at the end. And I like Tom dealing with his changes and the darkness. For a series that stays very lighthearted, it dealt with that element really well. I definitely can’t wait for the series to continue - look out London, they’re on their way!

    In the 2nd book of the Slay series, we follow the demon-slaying boyband to Tokyo, where there has been a spate of recent demon sightings, as they join the tour of a group of hologram girls as a support act and are targeted by an unknown enemy who seems to cause the group great harm. The characters in this series are all fantastically done- heroine Milly and the members of Slay are all wonderful and I adore the band`s manager Gail so much I can`t find the words to explain how much, but the sinist In the 2nd book of the Slay series, we follow the demon-slaying boyband to Tokyo, where there has been a spate of recent demon sightings, as they join the tour of a group of hologram girls as a support act and are targeted by an unknown enemy who seems to cause the group great harm. The characters in this series are all fantastically done- heroine Milly and the members of Slay are all wonderful and I adore the band`s manager Gail so much I can`t find the words to explain how much, but the sinister demons and new supporting characters are all so well-characterised too. One of my favourite things about book one was how action-packed it was, and while this certainly kept that up, I also really liked its quieter moments where the dynamics between characters shift (I`m a BIG fan of the love triangle in these books!) and also where they reflect on the various life-changing events of book one and the effect it has had on all of them. That said, the book isn`t sombre in the slightest, and the banter between the band is still absolutely hilarious. I was hooked on the mystery of who was responsible for the various accidents on the tour throughout (as well as the other mysteries that spring up as you get further in) and the reveal was better than I could have ever guessed, and I was so shocked by it. I haven’t heard anything about there being further books in the series yet, but if there are I will absolutely be reading them to see where Slay goes next, and who they come up against when they get there. 4.5/5

    What a massive ball of fun this is. Sometimes you just need to read about a boy band of demon slayers in Japan to escape reality. I absolutely had a blast. The characters are interesting, the plot is unique and the cover just makes my heart sing.

    Loved this book! Just as good, if not better, than the first. I’m very much looking forward to the next book.
