This book is about Lilianna, Lili for short. Lili is one of the witches banned from the Academy in 1313 (along with Jazz, Blaire, Thea and some others). She is a healer and a doctor – not to mention a very powerful witch. She has just begun a new job at Crying Souls hospital. S ...more
Set in a hospital for preternatural creatures, A Demon Does It Better is a paranormal romance with a touch of mystery and humour. Lili, a witch, healer and Doctor, gains a job at Crying Souls Hospital to investigate the disappearance of a friend and fe ...more
I adored Maggie's in-your-face personality in Demons are a Girl's Best Friend and expected there to be another similar kick ass character in this second installment. Regrettably, Lili didn't quite live up to my expectations. The first book was action packed while as this one is all about the romance and the main protagonist is a healer instead of a fighter. Two very different stories. I found A Demon Does it Better to be a bit of a letdown after such a solid kickoff to th ...more
A DEMON DOES IT BETTER takes place at Crying Souls Hospital where magical beings come to be healed. Much of the comedy in this book came from the antics, patients, and hospital staff at this ‘magical being-only’ hospital. The comedic moments were necessary to balance some of the disturbing and intense events which occurred in the prison-like hospital ward. While Lili tried to unravel the mystery of several disappearances at Crying Souls, the one mystery ...more
I really, really liked this book. It's an interesting story-line set-up. Intrigue is definitely the word for this book. Lili is a doctor and a witch and has come to work at a paranormal hospital because her friend who used to work there disappeared without a trace ten months ago. While working there, she meets a demon, Jared, who is in the psych ward. The strange thing is...she saw him just a few days ago while shopping. He caught her attention then and now she is even more intrigued a ...more
Add in the main character Lili being an idiot who fumbles her way through the whole story and completely fails to bridge the two aspects and things just don't mesh well. ...more
As a powerful witch-healer, Doctor Lili Carter knows she is uniquely qualified to get a job at Crying Souls Hospital and try to figure out what happened to her good friend Sera. A new nurse at the hospital, Sera had been excited about her job. She and Lili had communicated almost every day, Sera trying to talk Lili into transferring and working there with her.
Then the calls and mail stopped. Abruptly.
When Lili got concerned and called the hospital after not hearing from her fri ...more
Although, to be honest, when I started writing this review, I thought this was the start of yet another series spin-off. It'll be interesting to see where Wisdom takes us.
Whoa, Wisdom really sets up an intricate story here. The basics are a bit clichéd, but it's the detail and where Wisdom takes us that makes this a fa ...more
Also, I did not appreciate the unnecessary 'he left me' drama thrown in (literally in the last chapter). The author should have taken that silly piece out and dedicated t ...more

When she arrives she realizes things may be more difficult then she anticipated. Jared is a rare Shadow Demon, the first time he sees Lill ...more
I just wasn’t interested in the protagonist, Lili, at all. There wasn’t any kind of emotional connection between ...more
Book two in Linda Wisdom’s series about demons was a pleasant surprise. I wasn’t expecting much, but boy did she deliver a story unlike any I’ve read ...more

Lili is searching for a witch friend that just “disappeared” from the hospital she was working at, but what she finds is a demon in the dungeon below…
Ms. Wisdom makes her heroine a witch who heals and nurtures her friendships. Lili is kind, will defend her patients and friends to the death, and hasn’t had a love for a long time. The author really caught my attention with her demented demon. He’s a hunk that went a bit crazy from being ...more
Unlike other reviewers, I wasn't mad keen on Cleo, the former queen of Egypt now reincarnated as a cat, but she did have some really funny stand out moments.
I've also found the plots a bit lacking wi ...more
On to the review.
For the most part I really like this book. I know Lili and Jared was going to be good together right from their first face to face meeting. The plot was really unexpected in a good way. I wasn't expecting Jared's circumstances to be what they were (trying no to give anything away). One thing ...more

She has returned to work at a hospital she worked at before that treats the paranormal. This time she has more on her mind than just healing those in need. One of her dear witch friends has vanished and Lili is determined to find her. Once she has arrived at the hospital a ...more

I haven't read the first in this series, but it didn't seem to be a problem.
A Demon Does it Better is about Lili, a witch with strong healing powers who starts working at a preternatural hospital. While Lili is intent on treating patients, she also wants to find out why some nurses are mysteriously disappearing from the hospital. While treating patients in the 'mentally dangerous' ward, Lili meets Jared, a super sexy shadow demon that doesn't se ...more
It becomes quite clear that Jared is not insane as he once was and ...more
My witch series has also been optioned to be shopped around as a TV series or movie. So here's hoping!
