Winterblaze is more than a book. It's an emotional adventure into a highly addictive paranormal world starring two well-crafted characters who command every scene, complete with a stellar supporting cast who leave a mark of their own.
The Narrater Moira Quirk gives life to the story with her wonderful seductive voice.
The novel and the narrator left me wanting more of the Darkest London stories, and that’s how I want every book I read to end.

The oldest Ellis sister, Poppy, and her husband of 15 years, Win, have been estranged as a result of the secrets each is keeping from the other, but also due to the guilt they feel as a result of the choices they each made in the past. One of them has sold their soul to a demon so they could be together, but now it's time to pay up. Ms. Callahan writes the interaction between these characters so well that it feels like a real marriage. These are two very strong and stubborn individuals who are deeply in love with each other, but who have no illusions about the obstacles they'll have to overcome in order to have a future together.
For me, this was an unusual book for the PR genre, mainly because we very rarely see the story of an established married couple struggling in their marriage within a supernatural context. I thought it was very well done. Moira Quirk was good, as usual, and this book is one I will listen to it again.
All three books in this series fit together beautifully, but if I have one complaint it's that the three sisters don't come together to help each other when one of them gets in trouble. The author stays within the industry standard that each book deals with different main characters, and the previously introduced characters, however related, are only peripheral to the story. I think this standard is getting a bit tired, and this book would have benefited by having all the sisters get together to battle the baddies. (Otherwise, what's the point of their special powers?) I kept waiting for Miranda to come in and burn the place down, but nope. No love.
I don't know if there will be another book or not, but if there is another I wish it would allow all the characters to work together. This is one of those books I'd love to join a discussion group to talk about.
NOTE to PR fans: There is a great new series (Night Prowler) by J. T. Geissinger, currently available on Amazon, but not yet on Audible. Give it a look. It's pretty amazing.

Lots has been said already so I will keep it short. I enjoyed it, though for reasons I cannot pinpoint I did not enjoy it as much as the previous two books. Maybe there was not enough antag interaction, maybe I got sea sick from the up and downs from the relationship, I don't know, but what I will say, I love K.C's characters, there's not any that are mediocre they ALL stand out. Set in the Victorian era, with it's dark undertones and pithy humour, the series is a keeper.

I LOVE KRISTEN CALLIHAN
This is the latest in her Darkest London series begun in Firelight and followed by Moonglow (all on audible). If you haven't listened to them then why the hell not. They are the best thing in the world of Romance right now. I want every single one of her heroes and I cannot wait for the next instalment.
