BOOK REVIEW: The Demon's Librarian

Title: The Demon's Librarian
Author: Lilith Saintcrow 


Demons are preying on schoolchildren in her city, so Francesca Barnes does what any red-blooded librarian would do-she does some research and goes hunting. But the books she finds in a secret cache don't tell her the whole story. Chess has no idea what she's just stepped into or just how special she is. Orion is Drakul, part demon, and a loyal servant of the Order. He doesn't expect a motorcycle-riding librarian to be messing around with demonic forces, and he doesn't expect her to smell so damn good. But Ryan's got bigger problems. His partner has disappeared, and the forces of Darkness are rising. Now Chess is Ryan's only hope of finding his partner, and Ryan is Chess's only hope of survival because the demons now know Chess exists and that she is the heir to a long-lost power that could push back their dark tide. If Ryan can keep her alive long enough, she just might be the key to destroying the demons completely. But Ryan doesn't know he's been betrayed by the very Order he serves. And if Chess does, by some miracle survive, he won't ever be able to touch her again... 


I found it rather boring through the first half, often repetitive and kinda confusing at times. Liked much better the last half.
And I confess I kinda fell in love with Ryan.
What? He's hot! And sexy. And his possessiveness was just... sweet. And, again, sexy. A killer mix, if you ask me. Couldn't resist that. A total turn-on.
I liked Chess too, though often times I just wanted to strangle her.
Charlie..... well, for those few minutes we've known her, she seemed a kickass, but she also sort of annoyed me too.
Paul, I didn't like him from the beginning. No wonder it ended up that way.

***3 stars***
