The Demon Lover (Fairwick Chronicles #1)

Expected publication: December 27th 2011 by Random House Publishing Group 
Paperback, 416 pages
Review by Amber I.
  I gasped . . . or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. . . . His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked in my breath and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh.

Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of writing her bestselling book, The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. After all, Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she finds herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.

But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: He’s not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the incubus, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this demon lover from her heart.

My Thoughts

Wow, I am in love with this book. The reason I decided to read it was all about the cover it is so pretty and the story inside totally lived up to that pretty cover. 

So like I said I really had no idea what kind of book I was getting into and I was amazed at the story. We go to a small college town were Callie our heroine is offered a job. This town in layered with secrets. There are witches and fairies and sexy incubus and Callie herself is nothing near normal. 

Callie grew up listening to her parents fairy tales but when they died when she was only 12 and in walked a shadowy figure in her dreams to tell her stories. After she starts her career path towards studying gothic literature and fairy tales the man in her dreams disappears. But when she goes to Fairwick he returns to her dreams but not to read fairy tales! And thank goodness for that!

There are so many things to tell you to make you read this. Upon arriving in Fairwick Callie is drawn to this abandon house that rests at the edge of these spooky woods. This is where she finds out her sexy toe curling dreams might not be dreams but actually an incubus. She also starts discovering the secrets of the town and reading the person who owned the house old stories. Now these stories she reads are crazy similar to Callies experience with the incubus and man are they hot!

Okay lets summarize the awesomeness of this book. Old house with some mystery and an attic filled with erotic untold stories from a well known author. Sexy incubus who visits Callie and has mind blowing sex. The town filled with so many different supernatural creatures there is no telling who is human. The spooky woods with hidden secrets. Callies role in it all. The new mystery man who walks into Fairwick. Theres a sickness draining the students and faculty. 

Its just an awesome book. Some things I figured out early on but even when its revealed there was some nice added twists. The book is so well written it just has these vibe that pulls you in and doesn't let go. Its a must read.
