SLAY: On Tour Blog tour – review

SLAY are BACK...and this time they're headed to Tokyo to track down another hellraising 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...

Slay was one of my favourite books of last year and I had just as much fun reading SLAY: On Tour

The bond between characters is one of my favourite things about this series. All of the band members have distinctive qualities and quirks, and it was hard to pick which one I liked best. In the end, I'd have to stick with JD (my favourite from Slay). I thought Tom and Milly had interesting journeys as characters and I'll look forward to seeing how they develop in the next book. 

I really loved the Japanese setting of this book too. It felt authentic and well-researched, and the J-pop hologram girl band was a creative concept. I Iiked the elements of Japanese mythology too, and how the demons in this book allowed the characters to explore the morality of what they do.

The action sequences in this series are brilliantly written. They have the perfect balance of believable fighting, witty dialogue and danger.

I love the Slay books because they're fun, fast-paced reads but they also delve into dark subject matters. The characters in the Slay books are some of my favourites and I can't wait to see what happens to them next.
