I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

This is my third time reading this book. I still love it. This series is amazing, I ran across it by chance when I was browsing shelves at my library the first time I ever read it and has made as one of my favorites still. ( )

The Water Witch
4 Stars

The enchanting town of Fairwick, New York is not as tranquil as it seems. Home to the last door to Faerie, the town is being threatened by the Grove, a secret and sinister coven of witches determined to seal the door and banish the fae from the human world forever. Half-witch-half-fae professor, Callie MacFay, is caught in the middle while still struggling in the aftermath of banishing her demon lover. In an attempt to release her bound powers in order to help her friends, Callie agrees to accept the aid of Duncan Laird, a seductive academic who might have his own agenda. Will Callie be able to save the people she has come to love like family?

So often the second book in a series fails to live up to expectations, but this is not the case for The Water Witch for this sequel is equally as rich in atmosphere, faerie-lore and romance as the original.

It should be noted that readers eager for action-packed urban fantasy or a thrilling paranormal romance might be disappointed. Yes, there is fascinating world building, smexy love scenes and exciting moments, but these are not the focus. Rather the story revolves around Callie learning more about her magical past, discovering her powers and trying to move on from the loss of her incubus.

The plot is comprised of several parallel threads involving a vindictive undine, a an injured Norse demi-god, a secretive cult with a menacing agenda and a dangerous faerie drug. Each is well-developed and all ultimately coalesce into a satisfying climax and resolution.

The events of the previous book are seamlessly interwoven within the new narrative and the reader is never lost or inundated with repetitive detail.

All in all, a beautifully written and captivating story with an appealing heroine and charming secondary characters. The book does end on a minor cliffhanger so be sure to have the final installment handy. Highly recommended for fans of Deborah Harkness's All Souls trilogy. ( )

The much anticipated follow-up to Dark's/Goodman's The Demon Lover. Professor Callie McFay's folkloric adventures continue in the enchanted town of Fairwick as she and the other mythical creatures struggle against the stifling power and influence of members of the elitist witch coven The Grove. Caught between a responsibility to her friends and colleagues and the influence of her powerful grandmother, Callie struggles to come to terms with her newly discovered magical abilities. ( )

The Water Witch, the second novel in Juliet Dark's Fairwick Chronicles Trilogy, picks up six months after the events of the trilogy's first installment, The Demon Lover (click here to read my review). The focus of this novel is on an attempt by the Grove, a society of witches, to close the last remaining door connecting the human world with the world of the fey. This door is found in Fairwick, a small town in upstate New York that is home to many fey. As a door-keeper, Callie McFay, a half-witch/half-fey professor at Fairwick College, does not support the Grove, even though she herself is a member. Helping to stop the Grove, however, requires Callie to successfully unlock her astonishing powers. Assistance is provided in the form of Duncan Laird, a powerful warlock to whom Callie is immediately attracted. But Duncan may not be everything he seems, and Callie finds that heart is still tied to that of the incubus she banished from her life in The Demon Lover. Will Callie succeed in stopping the Grove and ensuring the door between the worlds remains open?

The strength of this novel, and the series in general, lies in the characters. Callie McFay is a likeable heroine. She's smart, strong and willing to do whatever it takes to help her friends. The supporting characters are equally well-drawn and interesting, especially Callie's friends and colleagues, whose interactions with Callie illustrate why she is so willing to help them out even if it puts her own life in jeopardy. The only character I wish more had been done with is that of Callie's grandmother, an important member of the Grove who I don't find to be fleshed out as well as some of the novel's other characters. Given Callie was raised by her grandmother, and the two are at odds over the intended closing of the door, I would also have liked to see more interaction between them.

The novel is well-written and, as a result, the plot moves along relatively quickly. While I liked the premise of this novel more so than I did the first installment in the series, I did grow increasingly tired of reading about Callie's rather erotic dreams involving her exiled lover. In addition, while I enjoyed learning about the fey and the world from which they come, I didn't particularly enjoy the sections of the novel involving Callie's visits to the land of the fey, which jolted me out of the main story. For this reason I haven't rated The Water Witch quite as highly as I did The Demon Lover. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to reading the conclusion to this trilogy.

Recommended to fans of paranormal romance.

Note: I was provided with a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. ( )
