Witch Blood by Anya Bast

Water witch Isabelle Novak must form an uneasy alliance with earth witch Thomas Monahan to hunt and destroy a demon of tremendous power, even though Thomas's very presence stirs deeper desires than she ever knew she had.

This is the 2nd book in the Elemental Witches series and I would recommend reading Witch Fire before reading this.

This book is about Isabelle Novak's revenge for the murder of her sister. She fails to find the demon in question and so attempts to take her revenge on the leader of the warlocks.

However, things don't quite go as planned and there is a more urgent mission in that more witches are being killed by the same demon who killed Isabelle's sister. Thomas Monahan is the leader of a local coven and he first appeared in the first Elemental Witches book, Witch Fire.

Lots of action, lots of sex and romance this one was not as engrossing as Witch Fire however, it still flowed along nicely and was a good read without having to think about it too much.

I have the next 2 books in the series very high up in my TBR pile, this is a really good series if your inot paranormal romance especially the witches side of things - makes a change from were's and vampires.

I love witches! And I hadn't really heard of this series before. Thanks! Not too keen on hearing there's lots of sex though - does it take away from the actual story? I'm sure I could just skip it, I hate when all this sex gets thrown into a paranormal book just to be there, you know? I can deal with the occasional sex scene, but when it's very in your face it bugs me. Going to add these books to my wishlist!

Hi Cat

Theres not really loads to detract from the story, its not like the Anita Blake books(from what I've heard haven't read those yet).
