Darkest London, #2

Moonglow is an amazing suspense novel filled with the romantic love story of two tortured souls looking for redemption of their past sins. Daisy Craigmore is attacked by a creature one night in which Ian Ranulf comes to her rescue and this event brings her into the fascinating world of paranormal beings that she never knew even existed. She is a courageous heroine that would do anything to protect the people that she loves even if it means putting her own life in jeopardy. Ian was a perfect partner for Daisy because he was dealing with his own past while fighting to protect her from the creature that was terrorizing the streets of London. The mystery intertwined during the course of this novel provides the ideal backdrop for their budding romance and the identity of the killer left me in tears because of what this would mean for the characters of this story.

Kristen Callihan is a fresh voice in the paranormal genre and has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her books haunt me after I have finished the last page and I am amazed at her character building and the paranormal world that she has created with each novel. I am desperately awaiting the release of Winterblaze which will continue the story of Poppy and her husband, Winston, which is due out next year.

Daisy Craigmore is spared from a vicious attack one night from a mysterious killer that is stalking the streets of London. Ian Ranulf just happened to be in the right place at the right time to save Daisy's life and introduces her to a world that she never could have imagined. The mysterious killer continues to take lives in random attacks where the victims seem to have something in common with Daisy. As the killer gets closer to finding her, her relationship with Ian grows with each passing day and the secrets that he has been hiding finally come to light. Will Ian be able to protect Daisy from this menace or will his own demons put her in harm's way?
