Winterblaze - Kristen Callihan 4.5 Stars

At long last Winterblaze has arrived, and with it mystery, demons, a hair cut, and some hot sex. Callihan continues her Darkest London series right where she left off, layering plots together in perfect balance that will leave you begging for more.

Poppy and Winston have walked dangerous paths, now with their trust broken and Winston’s eyes open they must work together to defeat an age old enemy. Don’t be fooled, even with an underlying message of trust this is no simple paranormal.

Poppy has put her position above everything in her life, and she has had enough. She draws the line at giving up her husband and goes after him, if only (she tells herself) to keep him safe. When Winston’s dark secret is brought out in the light of day a new set of problems is hers to deal with. Now, she has the choice to do what she always has done and do it herself...or allow herself to rely on another to have her back.

Winston is a man of honor, stuck on it a bit actually. When a man from his past comes collecting, his whole world comes crashing down. You will fall in love with Win, equally as much as you want to punch him. True marks of a well written character, to bring out such strong emotion in the reader. Just as Poppy has choices to make, he must decide what he is willing to sacrifice. Choices choices.

For any paranormal steampunk fans out there Winterblaze is a great addition to the Darkest London series. Too bad we once again have to wait!
