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 read Incubus, the first book in Carol Goodman's fantasy series, last year soon after publication. After reading that, I was intrigued by the setting and interested in the characters. Especially our Incubus character. I felt an almost righteous solidarity towards him in a lot of ways - he took on the role of what is usually played by the female of the gothic novel genre. The poor heroine, being pushed about and manipulated by the men around her who ultimately seal her fate. This is what I felt had happened with him. He was plucked out of nowhere and had his life shaped and changed by the women around him over an extensive period of time.

The creation of such a juxtaposed and interesting character is of course testament to Goodman's narrative skill. She elicits pathos and at times frustration with her characters. This therefore would propel a reader to want, quite simply, MORE.

The 'more' in my case was the arrival, after an unfeasibly long wait, of the follow up novel 'Water Witch'.

Goodman's narrator spends a lot of time recounting for the audience what has happened in the previous novel. This, although irritating for the established reader, is necessary for anyone choosing to read this book first.

We focus in on Callie's summer period between academic years and the events therein. The time span is quicker paced than the previous novel and the pages fly by.

We find Callie not quite able to move on from the events of the previous novel, but having her powers drawn on by her friends. I didn't feel like I gained much insight into the narrators character in this novel, or her relationships in this novel, but I felt happy with how they were set up previously to overlook this.

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.

Entertaining even though it's mildly annoying! It's a pretty, well-described world, with interesting use of certain traditional elements. But you do feel like giving Cailleach a slap for being nice but terribly dim! The first book was bad enough, where the true baddie is patently obvious to anyone except the characters of the book, but the same pattern goes here.

It's entertaining, though, despite it's predictability. I'm not sure where she gets the pronunciation of Cailleach as 'kay-lax', but I just ignored it anyway; it's never easy giving a phonetic pronunciation, and 'kye-yee-ach' doesn't conveniently shorten to Callie, so chalk that one up to artistic licence. Cailleach - nice but dim Cailleach - just can't seem to see the wood for the trees, or even what's right underneath her nose. Which is where the story gets annoying!

But Cailleach is nice - dim, yes, but still nice. So you want to follow her story and see where it goes. The descriptions are pretty and quite evocative; the other characters are sweet and interesting. So, all-in-all, good for entertainment.
