    So bad it is painful.

    Firelight by Kristen Callihan I bought this book on the grounds that it had so many high star reviews but I so strongly degree with them I felt that I had to offer other readers like my self a slightly more rounder picture. This book should be right up my street, it’s a period piece set in Great Britain, it’s a romance and it has a pinch of paranormal, all things that I like. And I did like the premise of this book but it was so badly written that it was a horrible reading experience, in fact if I hadn’t felt so strongly about writing a review I would have given up on this book at 25%. This book feels so american that if you redacted the dates and place names I would have thought this more like 1920’s Chicago or New York. I’m British so maybe that’s just something that I notice. This book drags, the author spends too much time telling us what the characters have done or will do, and very little time building the world or developing the people in it. The authors spends the whole book trying to build tension but never quite manages it, she does manage to find really moronic ways not to tell you stuff. Aaaah! So much of this book is superfluous to the story that it gets frustrating and annoying. Hence the skimming. The characters have some really strange and hard to believe thought processes, for example, if I covered you in paraffin and set you alight would forgive me instantaneously and want to be my best friend forever? If your answer to that question is yes then you are a better person than me. The hero couples first kiss beggars belief; it starts off quite romantically but all too soon I’m thinking “Oh gross, why would you even want to do that,” Kissing with tongues but no lips is just not kissing - seriously! The ending while not well written is a very good idea and I did enjoy it. So basically if you have decided to buy the book and then once you start reading you think “why?” just skip right on to chapter 28 which is about 75% through because, seriously, life is too short. I can almost understand why this got so many high star reviews, the author did create a very sensual hero and the ending of the book was nothing if not climatic, but Ms Callihan’s writing skills are really quite atrocious. Having said that I have heard through the grapevine that her writing improves as the series progresses and the premise for the series does sound quite good. So, would I recommend this book? Not on purpose, but I would recommend that you go to Goodreads and read lots of both low and high star reviews before committing.

    Dark, wonderful, spellbinding

    Could not put this book down in fact read it in two days. The characters were mesmerising and you fall in love with them, especially Archer and Miri. Brilliant read, straight on to the next one
