A Demon Does It Better

Linda Wisdom. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-1-4022-3672-3
Wisdom’s sexy sequel to Demons Are a Girl’s Best Friend mixes elements of mystery and paranormal romance with moderate success. Witch and physician Lili Carter takes a position at Crying Souls Hospital in the magical realm of Inderman. She has a hidden agenda: discovering what happened to her friend Sera, who disappeared while working at Crying Souls. Lili soon begins to question the mysterious and abusive practices of hospital director Dr. Mortimer. One patient in particular catches her interest: the shadow-demon Jared, aka Patient 1172, who has been branded a danger to himself and others, but whose powers allow him to briefly escape the hospital and begin a forbidden romance with Lili. Dragon head nurses, absentminded wizards, and cameos from members of the Hellion Guard round out the nicely diverse magical universe, and readers will enjoy the characters even when the storytelling falters.
