Lilith Saintcrow is an Awesome writer and this new book of her just shows how good she is.

The Demon's Librarian is a fast paced Fantasy Romance thriller of a ride. Francesca Barnes is a Librarian and when she finds out Demons are attacking the Kids in her town, the motorcycle riding Librarian decides to do something about it. She finds a secret cache of books that help her and then she finds out she can see Ghosts, does she freak out? No she studies and goes out and about to sort the Demons out. Until she meets Orion, who is part Demon himself. You wont be able to put this down.

Writing at its best.

The original cover, from the edition published February 1, 2009, is a much more appropriate cover based on the story. The silly paranormal romance style cover of the new edition, published July 31, 2015 is completely inappropriate to the strength of the storyline. So, ignore the new cover, ignore the PR style blurb, and read the review. Then read the book - it's really good! Also, if you have this title in your library, see if it updates. This is the same book!

“Keep it secret. Keep it safe.” – Gandalf, Lord of The Rings: The Hobbit
“The books always make this stuff sound so goddamn easy. They don’t mention the smell. Or the way getting hit in the face with a tentacle as big around as your thigh hurts.” – Francesca “Chess” Barnes, The Demon’s Librarian

It is hard enough being a librarian when “the ‘good citizens’ of Jericho City would pay thousands yearly for plastic surgery and to pad the pockets of the mayor’s friends, they simply would not vote a couple of measly bucks onto their property taxes to take care of her library.” Nope. That is minor compared to having to track down a skornac in the sewers and kill it with a knife. Bloody tentacled demon was eating kids – what else was she supposed to do?!

But killing a skornac demon draws attention – attention that could very well make her a bloody librarian smudge on the ground.

I read Lilith Saintcrow’s Jill Kismet series several years ago. (Wow. Hard to believe 2008 was ‘several years ago’!), back before I started writing reviews, but I rated them four and five stars. Then? I just wandered away. So many books, so little time! So, when I had the opportunity to read The Demon’s Librarian, I was well pleased. It is nice to greet an old friend.

This book didn’t disappoint.

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!

I love all of Lilith Saintcrow's books. This one was no exception. A fun ride, great characters and you will not put it down until it is finished. The lead character is less traumatised than her normal characters and the romantic relationship flows easily. Definitely a favourite.
