Publisher's Summary

The year is 1666. The King and Parliament vie for power, fighting one another with politics and armies alike. Below, the faerie court has enemies of its own. The old ways are breaking down, and no one knows what will rise in their place.

But now, a greater threat has come, one that could destroy everything. In the house of a sleeping baker, a spark leaps free of the oven - and ignites a blaze that will burn London to the ground. While the humans struggle to halt the conflagration that is devouring the city street by street, the fae pit themselves against a less tangible foe: the spirit of the fire itself, powerful enough to annihilate everything in its path.

Mortal and fae will have to lay aside the differences that divide them, and fight together for the survival of London itself....

disappointed

Story line and plot development are monotonous to the point of distraction.
Not nearly as well written or engaging as the first book in the series.
Narrators aren't bad.

Very hard to follow

This is the hardest book I have ever tried to follow. It is not just that it jumps back and forth in time but new human characters show up and you have no idea who they are or what happened to the last one in their place until and hour or two later. Very very confusing. I have rewound and relistened to chapters many times and been left puzzled. There are also gaps of 8-10 years at a time which leave you wondering why this character is suddenly married or destitute. I am halfway through and strongly considering returning this book, something I rarely do.
