Book Review: Lucky Son of a Gun (The Demo Accords Book 19) by John Conroe

Lucky Son of a Gun (The Demon Accords Book 19)

Mack Sutton is a normal guy who just happens to attend a very abnormal school. In a college where the pretty girls can kill you with a whisper and most of the guys can bench press a car, Mack and his sister Jetta are just run of the mill people -- or are they? Formerly printed as a Kindle Vella, this is a novel of the Demon Accords that gives a glimpse into the lives of the only non-supernatural kids in College Arcane.

Mack Sutton and his sister Jetta attend a school for supernaturals and are the only two students who are considered normal or nonmagical, yet they are the luckiest people ever. Is it simply a case of luck or is it something more? Mack has been known as a player with the women but after a very bad experience where he was tricked by a demon, he hasn’t been dating anyone. Cue beautiful witch girl, Veronica. He’s not sure if he’s scared of her or just really into her but everyone else can see they are clearly into each other.

One of the things I really enjoyed about Conroe’s books is the underlying meanings. Often his books in some way reflect what’s going on in the real world or what could soon be happening in the real world, and I find it interesting to see his take on things. In this series I don’t think you can even have a favorite character because each book makes a character your favorite.

About the Author:
Conroe wrote his first readable novel, God Touched, right after finishing his daughter's copy of Twilight and muttering: "Vampires don't farging sparkle!"

With seven more books in the series and a stand alone novel (Black Frost), he doesn't seem to be slowing down. He cut his reading teeth on the likes of Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, JRR Tolkien, Robert Heinlein, Andre Norton, and H. Beam Piper.

Financial professional by day and author by night (actually by morning), he bangs out his stories with fingers that are usually sore from forge burns or getting beat up at the dojo.
