Daring You To Read … Firelight by Kristen Callihan


Daring You To Read is a weekly feature here on Tynga’s Reviews where we dare you to read some of our favorite older releases (at least 6 months old). All the books/series we choose to feature are titles we adored and think you should give them a shot! We think it’s a super awesome way to discover that special book who might have slipped off your radar!

You’ve already read the book? Let’s us know what you thought!

Have a dare of your own? Leave a comment ^^

This week, I decided to dare you to read Firelight by Kristen Callihan because I just added the third book, Winterblaze, to my kindle (from netGalley) so I thought you should all catch up on this must read series!

Firelight is a breathtaking gothic twist of The Beauty and The Beast’s story. There are many retell out there, but this one is subtle and I truly enjoyed it! Callihan’s writing is simply fabulous, infusing credibility to this historic setup. Written in old English style and respecting the old traditions and morals, Firelight shines by its authenticity and I loved every second of my reading experience.

If you love to historical romance with a paranormal twist, Firelight is the perfect novel for you! For more fawning, you can read my review ^^

Firelight (Darkest London, #1)London, 1881
Once the flames are ignited . . .

Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.

They will burn for eternity . . .
Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.
