Kristen Callihan is quickly becoming an author on my auto-buy list. After reading FIRELIGHT and being impressed by the writing style and plotting, I was eager to read the second book in the Darkest London series, MOONGLOW. But I had absolutely no idea how good this book would be until I devoured it completely. Callihan, you officially have my heart.
Words cannot describe the amount of love I have for this book. I thought FIRELIGHT was an interesting read, but MOONGLOW absolutely ensnared me. I fell in love with Ian immediately and as I continued to read the book, I fell in love with Daisy as well. Both characters are superbly written, their personalities seeming to jump out from the pages because they seem so real, or at least I wish they were.
When a string of murders occur, Ian and Daisy join forces to find the killer. However, with Ian’s special abilities, the story gets much more interesting. Added to that is Daisy’s ability that is revealed in this book and you’ve got a winner! I love the way that Callihan gives clues as to who the killer is. It makes you think right alongside the characters and if you’re able to put the clues together, you’re able to figured it out yourself!
Another great thing about this book is the sexual tension. As Callihan weaves an intricate plot, she doesn’t leave the romance aspect hanging. Ian and Daisy sizzle and I loved the spunk Daisy possessed. It kept Ian on his toes.
Towards the end, I thought it was a little rushed, but overall, this book was amazingly written. WINTERBLAZE is going to be a book I will definitely be looking out for. Why must March be so far away?

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
