Evil Librarian by Michelle Knudsen

Here's another great book for Halloween.  This librarian has a present for his girlfriend.  It's one she doesn't want, but she doesn't realize that...

Candlewick Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It was published in September and you can grab a copy at your local bookstore now.

He's a very attractive young librarian.  Annie is soon spending all her extra time in the library working with him.  She's not interested in spending time with Cynthia any more.  Since Cynthia is not under his spell, she sees him differently.  He's changing Annie's personality, seems to control her, and he's not just influencing her.  It seems others are feeling his effect on them, too.  Only Cynthia seems to be able to withstand him.  This is both a blessing and a curse.

Life gets more eventful for Cynthia when she discovers he's actually a demon.  And there's not just one there.  There's to be a battle for the throne below and everybody is trying to draw more essence into their bodies so they can win the fight.

The story is fantasy with some romance thrown in.  I'm not talking about the librarian.  Cynthia has a boy she's had a crush on forever and he helps her fight the demons.  The story is busy, the action fearsome, and it's a battle to the end.  If you read this one before Halloween, you'll look at those costumes at the door a little more carefully, I bet.
