I literally just got finished reading this and I am.... what's the word? Seething. Annoyed. Distraught. The story just ended and I didn't want it to. I wasn't prepared for it to, and now I don't know how long I need to wait until the next instalment is due out.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series The Demon Lover but the Water Witch builds on the story that was laid out in the first book and builds it into this wonderful world that is damn near impossible to step out of. It seemed to take me days to get caught up in Callie's world with the first book, but with this one I was sucked in immediately and I struggled to put the book down.

I loved the extended descriptions, sometimes when your reading a book there is so much dialogue going on that you can't see where the characters are. But Callie's world is so very clear in my head thanks to the descriptions it feels like I have been there and seen the things she see's.

There are a few points in the story where I found myself literally screaming to Callie "he's not who he says he is" or " how can you not tell?" but there were also a few points that surprised me.

I requested a copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I got the first book in The Fairwick Chronicles series from Amazon Vine and loved it, so I made sure to buy WATER WITCH; the second book in the series. Like the previous book [succubus], all of the different elements that go into WATER WITCH are written in different styles. One minute we're reading Disneyish tales of true love, then bam! Hot succubus sex, gothic romance leads to classic urban fantasy overtones taking over etc.

Not only does the author's writing style change, but she also mixes mythical beings together with creatures of her own making. For example; we start with udines, but then are introduced to zombie beavers [my new favourite thing ever]. The way that the author keeps mixing different elements together keeps everything exciting and fresh; you never see what is coming next...

Cassie is a refreshing change from all of the gun-toting, roundhouse kicking, constantly one-liner cracking, 'sassy' heroines that are constantly thrust upon us in this types of book. Sure; she's in the middle of a otherworldly drama, but she uses her intelligence to research answers instead. She makes mistakes, doesn't conveniently develop any mystical powers or knowledge, and she can't do any physical ass kicking, which helps the tension build as there's never easy way out of the situations she finds herself in. I'd become bored with reading stories with the same prototype of heroine under a different name, so these books have been a real breath of fresh air.

WATER WTCH is told from Callie's POV, but we still feel involved with the secondary characters, in fact Callie's co-workers are more involved this time around, plus we get to see more of their own personal relationships too, instead of focusing solely on Callie.

I received this as a review copy but this has not affected my opinion.
After reading 'The Demon Lover' I was interested to see how Juliet Dark would continue Fairwick's story in 'The Water Witch'. I was comforted by the opening of the book in which Callie is in a familiar dream with her incubus lover. However, aware of his fate at the end of the previous book I knew that this was just a creation of her subconscious mind, rather than his return to the story.
The paranormal residents of Fairwick are again in need of Callie's help as the gateway to Faery needs opening to allow the Undines through following their spawning season. In her magical immaturity Callie mistakenly is pulled into Faery with the Water Nymphs, meeting an old friend, but incurring the wrath of an old Undine who threatens to follow her back to Fairwick. Callie's life then becomes more complicated as her grandmother's magical order endangers the last Faery portal in Fairwick, so a magical tutor is found to help Callie channel her abilities and learn how to fully use her powers.
In 'The Demon Lover'Juliet Dark concentrated upon establishing the paranormal history of Fairwick and Callie's connection to her Incubus lover. This meant that the story was relatively drawn out. In 'The Water Witch' Juliet Dark is not restrained by backstory, so she is able to develop her characters and use her time to explore the paranormal nature of the plot. I feel that because of this the reader is able to connect on a different level with Callie, and as we learn more of her history we grow a respect and empathy for her.
The plot is exciting, fast-paced and Juliet dark designs it to keep her reader in suspense. Her descriptions are full of imagery, immediately transporting her reader away.
I feel that this sequel exceeded 'The Demon Lover' and I am pleased to learn that Juliet Dark is continuing The Fairwick Chronicles.

Format: Paperback
From the author of Incubus comes the second installment within the fairwick chronicles, as you Callie's quest to save Liam from his watery prison continues. Character-driven, full of suspense and tension this exciting, original and inspired tale will delight many fans of the Young Adult genre. Intensely gripping and absorbing I was left screaming out after reading this book, as I was left desperately wanting to read on, distraught that the story had come to an end! Once you have read Incubus I would warn you that you will not rest until you have devoured the entire series, and so I am now waiting in anticipation as to the next book. The world building is clever, the characters are distinctive and whom you can really connect to and the storyline as a whole concept is utterly spellbinding hence I cannot praise Carol Goodman enough. I was hypnotized by this tale that caught my imagination so that I lost myself within a world of danger, supernatural surprises, demons and magic. If you love YA fantasy, gothic romance, magic, Vampires and adventure then this is a book that will delight, entertain and which you will loose yourself within for hours.

You have only to call my name to bring me back," he whispered, his breath hot in my ear. "You have only to love me to make me human."

Seduced by a powerful incubus demon, Callie has succeeded in banishing him to the Borderlands but Liam still haunts her dreams, tempting her with the knowledge of how to bring him back. But loving an incubus usually ends in death for a human. For her own sake, Callie must learn to control her desires and ensure Liam remains trapped for all eternity in his watery prison. Only there is a more dangerous creature than Liam in the Borderlands. The Water Witch is looking for a way back...
