4.5/5
I just love discovering new authors. It is such a wonderful thing when a book meet all your expectations. Demons at the Doorstep was a wonderful young adult fantasy book and I am very happy that it landed on my doorstep!
The first thing I feel I should point out about this book is the writing. I was about 50 pages in when I decided that regardless of what I thought of the plot I would give the book a few stars for the writing alone. Rachel Bell-Irving is no shadow of doubt a very talented

I read through this book so fast, I just couldn't put it down! It's a nice new twist on witches and witch hunters, with the added bit of throwing in demons. Also being set in Canada which just makes it that much more awesome to me. Would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a new fresh young adult fantasy book!

Beeing curious of what Rachel achieved with her first book I started reading. As an old Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fan the titel soundes interesting -and I absolutly loved it. I liked the way the setting was discribed, reminding me of the travels to Canada. Also I loved the love story slowely starting but never getting cheesy. A good read for cold autumn days!

Natürlich war ich neugiering auf das erste Buch der lieben Rachel, die ich in Kanada kennegelernt hatte. Als alter Harry Potter

This is a great, quick summer read and serves as a wonderful first (hopefully of many more) release from Bell-Irving. The book was filled with humour, flirtation, and vivid descriptions that made me feel like I was on the streets of Toronto with the heroine (which could be scary at times with some of the horrifying creatures in the story). I can't wait to read the rest of the series and hear more about Jessica Williams' whirlwind of a life!

I finished reading Demons at the Doorstep last week and love the world that the author created! I haven't read a book about magic and witches for so long and I really enjoyed reading this urban fantasy. I loved how strong Jessica was and it was so nice to read about an independent protagonist. There was a hint (really more of a tease!) of a romance that I hope will develop more in the following books. There is so much potential for this series and I am so excited to continue reading it!

I'm a YA author based out of Vancouver, Canada. I love stories with crazy creatures, heist stories, underdogs, magic warriors, hate to love trope, and anything with witty one-liner humour.

When not writing or reading, you can find my exploring tide pools at the beach, enjoying a cup of tea, or daydreaming about adventure and magical lands. Connect with me on instagram:
