Firelight by Kristen Callihan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Firelight is a fascinating supernatural story set in London in the 1800's. Instead of dealing with werewolves or vampire's, we get to deal with daemon's and immortality.
Miranda, the main female character is my favorite. She has a lot of emotional baggage but once she's settled in her new life away from her father, things start to look up for her. Her conditions, although in the beginning are less than favorable, she truly starts to care about her new husband Lord Archer. She also starts to come to terms with something special in herself, her special powers of fire creation.
This was a roller coaster read. There were highs, lows and everything in between. There was just enough magic to keep you wanting more but not enough to overdo it. It was a good read. I would have liked to read more about the West Moon Club which is a club that Miranda's husband was dealing with which caused a lot of their present day problems. I think more backstory on the West Moon Club could be fascinating.
