"Call Me Forth" by JM Paquette

Mr Pilkington  is a demon who is visiting the human realm on a mission for his master. He is meant to deliver a message, but on the way there and while wearing the form of a teenager, he meets and spends some time with a teenage girl that he finds himself becoming more and more intrigued by. After that, but before he can complete his mission, he is Summoned in a way that he cannot refuse by someone nearby who knows his true name. That means he must do as the summoner commands. And these things never end well for someone, do they?

This was a shorter story  book by an author with which I was previously unfamiliar.  I read this book in one sitting and found myself not wanting to put it down.  While I wasn't certain what to expect from this book as I don't tend to read many stories with a demon as the main character, I can honestly say that this was something completely different than what I first thought it would be. I found myself quite intrigued by the main character and wanting to know more. As the dedication says: "Because demons need love too." Just try and tell me that alone wouldn't leave you wanting to know more?

I very much enjoyed reading this book and expect that others will as well. I found it a very sweet tale about someone who found more than he expected or had even been looking for at the time. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book in the series. If it's as good as this one was, the author has me hooked. I'd say give this one a shot if you enjoy stories that turn out to be a bit more than what you might expect, or ones where the main character grabs your attention and doesn't let go.
