Review

"Top Pick! 4 1/2 Stars! Like all good things, Callihan just keeps getting better and better. The third installment in the Darkest London series is not only a gripping novel, but also one that elevates the genre with its depth of emotion, passion and mesmerizing storytelling. Callihan doesn't just create worlds, she moves readers into them with unforgettable characters and stunning revelations. Once begun, it's impossible to put down WINTERBLAZE."—RT Book Reviews

"Dark, dangerous, and totally enthralling, this latest edition to Callihan's Darkest London series treats fans to a heart-tugging, satisfying romance, fills in a few series blanks with well-handled flashbacks, and nicely sets the stage for stories that are sure to come."—Library Journal

"Compulsively readable...a compelling Victorian paranormal with heart and soul."

Poppy Lane learned at a very young age how to keep secrets. Her powers and her position in the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals mean that she has to hold back a part of herself from everyone, including her husband, Winston. But when a werewolf attacks and nearly kills Winston, Poppy's secrets are revealed; and her husband, who has no stomach for lies, leaves her. Poppy knows Winston still loves her, but she doesn't know how to win back his trust. She'll have to find a way, especially now that a demon is targeting them both. It will take the combined strength, intelligence and love of this husband and wife team to defeat an immortal evil hell-bent on their destruction.

The DARKEST LONDON series just gets better and better! Author Kristen Callihan is at the top of her game in WINTERBLAZE, an exciting, sensual, imaginative story that will sweep you away to a world unlike any other.

Poppy and Winston are interesting, endearing characters, and as a couple they're simply irresistible. It's clear from page one that they're meant to be together, but the obstacles in their path aren't easy ones for them to overcome. I love that Ms. Callihan weaves the story of how they first fell in love into WINTERBLAZE; it gave me a good sense of the foundation of their relationship and provided a nice contrast to the present day, showing how they've grown and changed in the fourteen years they've been married. While I can't say much about the plot of WINTERBLAZE without spoiling the gripping twists and turns the story takes, I will say that Ms. Callihan had me rooting for Poppy and Winston all the way through the book. The only downside to this was that I didn't want to put WINTERBLAZE down, no matter how late the hour.

I have really enjoyed the three books of the Darkest London series. They manage to merge the great romance of a historical romance with the dark, dangerous world of a paranormal or urban fantasy novel in a way that is unique and refreshing in many ways. I adored Firelight, and Moonglow was also super enjoyable. This third book of the series didn't quite rise to the level of those first two books, but I still enjoyed it and will continue reading on in this interesting and well-written series.

The particulars:

Winterblaze is the story of Poppy and Winston Lane. When we last left this couple in Moonglow, Winston, a London detective with no knowledge of the crazy supernatural world around him, discovered that his wife, Poppy, had lied to him their entire marriage. She played a huge role in this supernatural universe, and after Winston is nearly killed by a werewolf he discovers who the woman he married truly was. Needless to say, he didn't take the news so well, so as this book begins Poppy and Winston are separated and in the middle of an epic war of the silent treatment. That changes when Poppy receives a message making it appear as if a newly escaped demon is coming after Winston, making it necessary for Poppy to come to his rescue. It turns out that Winston has more experience with the supernatural than he had any idea of, and he has made a real mess of a situation for his family. This is the story of Poppy and Win coming to terms with their roles in this supernatural universe while they fight an uber-powerful demon with a personal agenda involving the Lanes. Can their marriage survive? Can they survive? That's the story.

My thoughts:

I thought that it was interesting that this story begins with our hero and heroine already married.

Reviewer: Heather

It's not any big secret how much I've fallen in love with Kristen Callahan. I think I've stated this before, when I reviewed her first and second books from the Darkest London series. What I love most is that you can pick up wherever, but starting at the beginning is always fun too.

I don't do spoilers, but I will say that the first three books follow the lives of three sisters. The third book covers the eldest, Poppy and her beloved husband of fourteen years, Winston. Poppy's kept secrets from not only her husband, but her family too. In book three they all come crashing down on her.

Winston also has a dark secret, a pact that is so far in his past he's forgotten about it. When their secrets collide, the couple only has four days to solve their case, but will it save or destroy their marriage?

This has the same voice that I've come to love from Callihan. Witty, strong women and men face off at every turn. No one is weak, but each has weaknesses. Typically it's the warring couple, and that's great because it leads up to some awesome tension and big explosive moments.

This one, like her last, brought in some steam punk elements. They mainly revolve around the SOS, or the Suppression of Supernaturals. I hope this continues, because I think it's a wonderful addition to the world she's created. I'm looking forward to the next in the series!

If you enjoy romance, with paranormal, historical, and fantasy twists this is an author to follow. If I wasn't already in love with London than I am now, because she portrays this underground in a beautiful way, without getting flowery or dull. Her characters are real, not full of frippery ladies, and she writes debauchery well enough without it being overly slutty.
