Lexi's Thoughts:

Callihan brings us the third book in her Darkest of London series showing us deeper characters and more haunting villains. For followers of this series, Winterblaze is worth the wait.

Poppy is the no-nonsense older sister. Her reserved attitude in the previous books kept her secret well hidden, until husband lay dying. Winston, Poppy’s husband, is the annoying detective always sticking his head places he shouldn’t. After his brush with death he leaves Poppy, unable to face the one who holds his heart and betrayed his trust. 

Marital conflict, simple right. Throw some paranormal characters and demons into the mix and you have much more than a simple argument and loss of trust between a husband and wife. The whole book revolves around the need for trust in a relationship, and how that can bleed into every aspect of your life. A good lesson, oh and then Callihan throws in action, mystery, and some very hot sex. What a good mix!

Winterblaze builds on the story lines begun with the first two books, but it also feels new. The dynamic between Poppy and Winston is electric, you want to punch them both in the face and then cry for them. As we have come to expect you will finish the book wondering what is coming next. Time to start that count down all over again!

 Rating: 4.5 Wines! Just look at that cover...how can you not want to pick it up?
