Publisher's Summary

Once blissfully in love...

Poppy Lane is keeping secrets. Her powerful gift has earned her membership in the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, but she must keep both her ability and her alliance with the Society from her husband, Winston. Yet when Winston is brutally attacked by a werewolf, Poppy's secrets are revealed, leaving Winston's trust in her as broken as his body. Now Poppy will do anything to win back his affections....

Their relationship is now put to the ultimate test.

Winston Lane soon regains his physical strength but his face and heart still bear the scars of the vicious attack. Drawn into the darkest depths of London, Winston must fight an evil demon that wants to take away the last hope of reconciliation with his wife. As a former police inspector, Winston has intelligence and logic on his side. But it will take the strength of Poppy's love for him to defeat the forces that threaten to tear them apart.

What the Critics Say

"Top Pick! 4 1/2 Stars! Like moths to a flame, readers will be drawn to the flickering Firelight and get entangled in the first of the Dark London series. Combining Stephen King's Carrie and Beauty and the Beast, Callihan crafts a taut tale filled with sexual tension. This is one of the finest debuts of the season." (RT Book Reviews on Firelight

"Compulsively readable...a compelling Victorian paranormal with heart and soul." (Publishers Weekly on Firelight)

    "You will love it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. The action the love story and way the couple worked everything out and love concurs all atmosphere for all the relationships in the book


    What other book might you compare Winterblaze to and why?

    The first two books about her sisters compare to this one but I still like Moonlight the best


    Have you listened to any of Moira Quirk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is a good narrator


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked all the times when he promised to support her after he found out he caused them to be in the position they were in. In the first books I never saw him the way he was presented in this book. I am glad he got back with his brother in the end


    Any additional comments?

    Hurry with the next book I can't wait.

    "Don' believe the hype!"

    Have you ever listened to an audiobook and in retrospect wondered, "Did the author pay reviewers?" Well, this is that type of book. I read all the rave reviews. I bought the audiobooks with high hopes. Then, disappointment came crashing down. I have tried to get through this audiobook FOUR TIMES (excuse the all caps, but really! It's that bad!) Each time I try to muddle through, but I just can't seem to keep interest. The narration is great. But even great narration can't make up for a plot that flows like molasses. This audiobook might work for you if you have the patience of a saint. That's just not me, and I have completely given up on finishing this audiobook - the action is that lacking.

    Story
    "This series is on my favorite list!"


    We are introduced to Poppy and Winston Lane in the first book of the series. Poppy is Miranda and Daisy's older sister and Winston, a savvy police inspector, is her husband of several years. After the events of the previous book leaves Winston and Poppy's marriage in shambles it takes the threat of a demon to bring these two back together to mend their relationship.

    This story was fantastic! I loved the way Callihan weaved the beginnings of Poppy and Winston's courtship and relationship within the tale. This couple was clearly in love, but it took a huge betrayal to bring out the depth of their emotions for one another. So much is revealed in this story regarding the Ellis sisters and the overall paranormal world. It is becoming an even more intriguing storyline as we delve further into the characters, histories, and events in the series. I cannot wait for the next book because it will feature two characters I am dying to know more about their past and eventually their future. Another character I am curious to know more about is Lena (spelling? I listened to the audio version so I'm not sure of the spelling).


    Narration
    Narrator: Moira Quirk
    Performance: 5/5
    Speed: 1.25x
    Another great narration from Quirk. Accents, distinctions, tone, and inflection was spot on. The pace was perfect when I set the reading at 1.25x the normal speed.

    "Not worth the sale price."

    I read 2 books in this series and liked them. I just could not get into this book and stopped trying.
