The Grimrose Path (2010) Rob Thurman (Trickster)

The Grimrose PathTrixa has avenged her brother, and now she has to live as a human until she regains her powers.

But now I was human, and had discovered living off diner food. . . . It was less than a block away; what could I do? I packed on five pounds in two weeks. She Who Would Not Be Labeled had become She Who Must Find the Nearest Gym.

Which means she can’t rely upon anything but her wits and her found family to stop what could be the end of the world.

It’s the little things that push this book from like to love.

I’d called and texted everyone and anyone I knew in the païen world to see if anyone had heard about the demon slaughter. So far I’d gotten nothing but a bemused feeling at the thought of a seven-tailed trickster fox trotting around Japan with a BlackBerry in its jaws.

My once-conditioned body seemed to be falling to pieces fast. The maintenance on a human body was unbelievable. If you slept wrong, you were crippled for the day. How could a species manage to sleep wrong? How had they survived to swarm the earth?

Though I admit that she seems to recover relatively quickly from the damage Eli does to her.

Someone had once said that all that was necessary for evil to triumph is for wise men to do nothing. These days wise men did nothing a hundred times faster than they had a few hundred years ago, but they were still as blind and useless as they’d ever been.

But mostly I just love the snark.

“And who are you going to pray to, Loki?” I snapped back. I was sorry, but I was getting less sorry all the time.

“Myself, and you’d better hope I’m not listening.” He slammed the door behind him.

And now I have to find something else, but I don’t think I’m up to re-reading the Cal & Niko series right now.
