The Demon’s Librarian, Lilith Saintcrow

 

The Demon’s Librarian,  Lilith Saintcrow
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and fantasy
I adored the Dante Valentine series, so wanted to see what this early novel was like. Its much, much lighter in feel, both in plot and characters. I liked Chess, and of course Ryan, so this made for a fun read but its not one I’d reread.
It’s a little puzzling to begin as the schoolchildren being killed blurb description is pre the beginning of the book. Chess has already done her research and is out killing a demon right at the start. The terms too can be a little confusing, its not hard to pick up but they’re just there – no real explanation of what they mean, and that happens too with some of ( not all) the demon/troll creatures language.
Its a book I really enjoyed, and I think would have developed into an interesting trilogy/series but I’m assuming that, as with the original read, its a stand alone. Some fast acting plots with danger and betrayal, though at times I could beat Chess and her sister over the head with a Sabatier frying pan for their plain stupidity….yes, you have just escaped death by Demon, and they’re still after you for painful and bloodthirsty sacrifice, and of course its sensible to ditch the paranormal protectives and just play at being “normal “ for a day…Doh…bits like that in a read really make me want to poke my eyeballs out with a rusty spoon. For a better read and for the cost I’d say its better to spend a bit more and get the whole Dante Valentine sereis in a collection – just £12.99 and a terrific escape into a dark and detailed fantasy world.
Stars: four, its a decent one off read but Dante beats Chess easily!

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
