I do n't happe, but that kind of made me ant to love it so bad.

Did n't have that problem here, did n't see ery much but fell in love with Moonglow.

I loved Bayou Moon, which is one such book.I like Lycans here.

But, then firecracker Daisy rushes into his life, and suddenly things are looking up.

But that, of course is a minor obstacle when love is in question.I absolutely adored Daisy and Ian. Her cheerful, no-nonsense demeanor and her ove of life and courage endeared her to me thoroughly.

Ian ... is tortured and kind of sad, but when he 's with Daisy we see the playfulness reappear, that same joy in life, and the strength he 'll definitely need in this fight.So, some flirting ... Daisy Craigmore, while bein a most angelic countenance, could glare bloody murder quite well.

“ You light me up. ” And love ... “ I made a lie of love. ” ( Poppy about her marriage) -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- “ She is coming to live in truth, ” ( Poppy said about Daisy and Ian) “ Ah, but if you gave it to me freely, I swear on my soul I wouldn ’ t let it go to waste.

Winterblaze, coming February, 2012 is the las nove in series, and it 's about Poppy and Winston, as we might have guessed from this ook.

( fans self) My only complaint with this one is the quick resolution, which I hope we see some fallout for in future books, as I would 've liked maybe a few more pages of explanation, I guess?

feels.I 'm loving how each successive book is fleshing out the witches, werewolves, and who knows what!, in his world.

he story itself was intriguing and creative, but there seemed to be just a little too much going on.

I did like he story surrounding Ian 's character, but I felt the ending.

lets just say I hated ( view spoiler) [ Daisy 's ending.

I 'd ive the story a good 4 star rating, but my overall is somewhere around 7 because of the protagonist<3 I fell in love with them <3The story - Although this is a historical, it's full of paranormal beings, the writer introduced to us a whole lot of them, demons, vampires, werewolves, shifters, gim-s (ghosts of some kind), and I think there was an actuall angel in one scene XDAnyway, this book is centered around Ian, the werewolf, and Daisy, Miranda's sister who has survived a werewolf attack.

After Ian saves her from the attack, she falls for him, even though she knows almost from the beginning that he 's a lycan.

Update 03/18: b-r with Joanna, Sam and Isabella.Additional thoughts: Please keep in mind that I alread have n't finished the series, but here it goes for the five books I 've read so far.Whenever I state that I consider Ember/Firelight and Moonglow to be the weaker of the five books I 've read from this series, I still think it 's ctually nothing but a gross misrepresentation of GR' 5-star-rating system.

Read slowly, let it sink in, and you 'll fin the numerous nuances Miss Callihan has given her characters.

I have read enough PNR novels- and simply general romance books- by now and I have come to ome conclusions:- The absence of the almost obligatory fate-mating this sub genre suffers from- and yes, I do n't like fate-mating at all, because it does n't get the characters room to develop.

There are reasons for the animosity/wariness the characters begin their journeys with, but the author ives them not only a reason for it, she also gives them enough space and reflection to slightly shift the dynamics; which is why I I said further above 'take your time, read slowly. '- Each character is unique in his/her own way.

I think their strength, their wit and resolve is what attracts the heroes to them in the first place.- This is where I will repeat myself again, but seeing how many mediocre books I 've read lately, I want it 's worth mentioning.

I 'll continue to comment and and add my thoughts on the events in Moonglow on Romance Book Buddy Reading.

Moreover, I just re-read and finished Moonglow.A wonderfully layered story that opens the paranormal world the author built even further, introducing us to lycans ( and werewolves), to the GIM 's ( Ghost in the Machine) and the SOS ( The Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals).

This second in th series, Firelight, opened the first door, and Moonglow takes it further.Here we have he heroine, Daisy, who can control the flora.

Besides being wonderfully built, written, executed, it does one thing that most PNR novels/series ignore: it lets the main characters' love grow.

4.5 stars rounded up.I ’ m not normally one for vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters or paranormal romances in general, but having read and heard such good things about the irst ook in a series – Firelight– I finally got around to listening to he audio version last year and was so completely hooked that I did to read or listen to the est of he series.

It ’ s been a while since I listened to hat book, but this yea ’ s prompt of “ series catch-up ” gave me the ideal excuse to read book two, Moonglow.The things I ’ d enjoyed so much about the nex story are very much in evidence in this one – the Victorian setting, a terrific storyline, strong characterisation and the amazing chemistry the author creates between her two protagonists.

Watching these two emotionally bruised, proud people come together is a real delight, and even though their relationship in the early stages seems more based on lust than anything else, Ms Callihan develops it very skilfully so that we see that lust turn to love as the couple forges a strong bond based on mutual loyalty and trust.There are some truly visceral emotional gut-punches in the story, not least of which is the one near the end which threatens to separate Ian and Daisy forever.

It ’ s the only way the tory would have gone, I suppose, but it ’ s possibly my least favorit part of the book.While all this is going on, we ’ re introduced to more of the elements making up Ms Callihan ’ s world of Darkest London; the SOS ( Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals), the GIMs ( Ghosts in the Machine), as well as vampires, shape-shifters and other supernatural characters that will no doubt feature in future books.There are a couple of small inconsistencies that niggled a bit, such as when Daisy so easily leaves her sister Poppy when the latter ’ s daughte is fighting for his life and Poppy needs emotional support- but I wil let that go, as Daisy isn ’ t in a articularly good place, mentally, at thi point, either.
