Before starting this book I expected to read something that was witty, humorous, fun, and of course paranormal. I wasn’t disappointed at all. This book was every bit of what I’ve come to expect from Linda Wisdom and more.

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

A while ago, I read a novella called Intern With The Vampire which I loved because of the combination of medical drama and paranormal creatures. When I read the blurb for A Demon Does It Better I snapped it up eagerly hoping for something similar.

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

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

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

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

My Review:

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

Perplexed Me A Bit
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

Second in Demons, the spin-off series from Sixth in the Jazz Tremaine, a.k.a., Hex. This series focuses on, well, what did you expect? Demons with Dr. Lili Carter and Jared.

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.

My Take
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

I read this as a stand alone, which from reading others reviews, was probably a good thing. It was a good read and highly entertaining. However, I did feel the ending was a bit rushed, like the author just wanted it to be done. The whole book built up and built up; then SURPRISE its all over in a few 'happily ever after' pages.

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

Nurses keep disappearing from the supernatural hospital; one of those nurses was Sera, one of Lilli’s good friends. Lilli is a gifted witch and healer and was once a physician at that hospital, so she decides she can easily return and try to figure out where her friend disappeared to, she knows Sera didn’t just take off. 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
I’m kind of thinking that I just wasn’t in the right mood for this book. Other reviews for it are glowing, but I absolutely could not get into the story. At all. I felt no emotional connection to the characters, the prose was clunky and off-putting, and by page 100, I still had no idea what the main plot thread would be. Let’s break this down into things that annoyed me:

Favorite Lines: “She mentally rehearsed opening dialogue if they had just “happened” to bump into each other. Oh, hello. Do you happen to know where Rangel’s Harvest Foods might be? Excuse me, but don’t I know you from somewhere? Actually, I know I’d remember you if you had been a patient of mine. No forgetting a body like that.” (p. 11-12, egalley)

I haven't read any other books in this series - this one happened to be on the "new" shelf of the public library, and it's not clear from the cover that it's 6th in a series. [ETA: No, wait, on a second look, it's the 2nd of a series; the other 4 books on the inside cover are from a different series. Which at least explains the very different cover styles.] And that can be a problem for a reader, because the author sometimes assumes that laying in some of the basic background isn't necessary any ...more

Instead she finds even more questions as she is brought to the underground, dungeon-like part of the hospital where the mentally insane are kept.

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

It's not as good as the first Demon book - Demons Are A Girl's Best Friend - and it's sadly not as good as the first four in the series (the Hex series) but that's not to say it's a bad read. It's fluffy romance with the usual sidekick characters who provide a quirky extra to the main witchy heroine.

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

My Thoughts

This is one of my favorite books of the whole series. We have heard of the healer of the group and in this book we finally get the chance to meet her. Lili is a doctor on a mission. 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

This is the second book in Wisdom’s Demon series and the first of hers I have read. The author has set up an open world for her story. The magical community isn’t hidden from the “mundanes” but they don’t really mix. There is an alternate dimension called Inlander’s Magical Plane where magical folk can live and shop.
