The Demon's LibrarianThe Demon’s Librarian by Lilith Saintcrow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Chess is a demon hunting librarian. I don’t know what else I need to say to express the fun I had reading this book.

While at work in the library Chess finds a secret stash of demon hunting equipment and lore. She also realizes that the reason children are disappearing is because they’re being eaten by a demon. Once she knows that and realizes she has the means to help, she can’t ignore things. One of my favorite tropes is that of what “normal” people do when they encounter the supernatural, so this was right up my alley.

While hunting she meets Ryan, a half-demon member of an order of demon hunters. Even though she’s a hunter now, Chess is unaware of many parts of the supernatural world and doesn’t know anything about him, his order, or that his primary function is as the rather disposable sidekick of his partner. And to top all this off, Chess is some sort of magical superspecial being, the kind that hasn’t been around in a very long time.

The book has romance, betrayals, and tough decisions that need to be made. I liked it a great deal and would read a sequel.

  1. Sounds a bit in premise like Correia’s “Monster Hunter International” series. That series is fluff, but it is entertaining.
