The Water Witch By Juliet Dark

 The Water Witch (Fairwick Chronicles, #2)

 After casting out a dark spirit, Callie McFay, a professor of gothic literature, has at last restored a semblance of calm to her rambling Victorian house. But in the nearby thicket of the Honeysuckle Forest, and in the currents of the rushing Undine River, more trouble is stirring. . . .

The enchanted town of Fairwick’s dazzling mix of mythical creatures has come under siege from the Grove: a sinister group of witches determined to banish the fey back to their ancestral land. With factions turning on one another, all are cruelly forced to take sides. Callie’s grandmother, a prominent Grove member, demands her granddaughter’s compliance, but half-witch/half-fey Callie can hardly betray her friends and colleagues at the college.

To stave off disaster, Callie enlists Duncan Laird, an alluring seductive academic who cultivates her vast magical potential, but to what end? Deeply conflicted, Callie struggles to save her beloved Fairwick, dangerously pushing her extraordinary powers to the limit—risking all, even the needs of her own passionate heart.

 An amazing tale... I couldnt get enough... I loved following Calli thru her mishaps in magic and seeing her devotion to her new family of good neighbors... Calli has a good heart and I enjoyed my journey with her thru the woods and the banks of the Undine... I hadn't done my research before requesting this ARC and was unfortunate to not have read The Demon Lover, book one. However it didn't matter the author filled me in so much so that I didn't miss a thing. I'm excited to read both The Demon Lover and book 3 The Hallowed Door, when it comes out...
