The Water Witch (Fairwick Chronicles, #2)

The Water Witch (Fairwick Chronicles, #2) - Juliet Dark,  Carol Goodman "Ah, there you are! We got worried when you didn't answer the door and went looking for your key. Only it doesn't seem to be under your gnome.""It's here," I said, nudging a flowerpot full of geraniums with my toe.Liz and Diana exchanged a puzzled look. "Why would you put it there? It belongs with your gnome," Diana said, as if it were the most obvious fact in the world. "Everyone hides their key under their gnome.""Doesn't that defeat the purpose of hiding the key if everyone knows where it is?"Callie is a doorkeeper. It is her job to protect the doorways between Faerie and the human world. Half witch, half Fairy she has powerful magic locked inside her, but there are wards around her that prevent her from accessing it. With a vengeful water nymph on the loose and looking for a mate; a bigoted group of witches plotting to close the doorway to Fairie; and two men trying to get her into bed while the memory of her previous lover (an incubus) is still fresh in her memory, Callie is being pulled in every direction. She needs to unseal her power, keep the door open and maybe even learn how to love if she is going to have any hope of saving her friends.The Water Witch is quite an unusual book. At times it reads like a young adult novel but it's very much a book for adults. There is quite a lot going on in there and at times it felt like there was a little too much going on, but somehow Juliet Dark manages to pull it all together into a suspense filled book about witches, fae and a whole bunch of otherworldly creatures.Many thanks to Ballantine Books and Netgalley for providing me with this ARC
