    1. Poppy and Winstone have been married for fourteen years. And for fourteen years Poppy has been keeping secrets. As a member of The Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals (SOS), she and others like her, keep the human world ignorant and safe from the supernatural world. When Winstone, a police inspector, is attacked by a werewolf, he finds out that Poppy is not who she appears to be, his wife the bookseller. When Poppy receives a message that a demon is out to get Winstone, Poppy will do ev [...]

    2. It was only when I read The Hook Up that I noticed that Kristen Callihan was also the author of the Darkest London series of which I had read Firelight. It was an enjoyable story and judging by my GR friends, I knew that the series would get better. Oh dear, getting better doesn’t really come anywhere close to describing Winterblaze.Whilst Firelight was too much into world building and two main characters who kept their secrets hidden for too long, and Moonglow, although an absolutely lovely b [...]

    3. These books have the best freaking covers EVER!!!But! I'm sorry to say the cover here is so much better than the actual book :( The two MC-s were extremely irritating, I basically wanted to bitch-slap them both throughout the book. The constant flashbacks did not help.Though one good thing, I'm dying to read Jack and Mary now <3

    4. 5+++ starsIt's a toss-up, but 'Winterblaze' may just top 'Firelight' as my favorite in this awesome series! which really means I think I love Winston even more than Archer!Callihan has once again crafted a superb story set in a dark and gloomy 19th century London. In the aftermath of events from the last book a ravaged Winston has left Poppy, his indomitable wife of 14 years, after learning that who and what he believed her to be was a mere facade. But an evil force from both of their pasts has [...]

    5. Loved the first two books in this series. Was so looking forward to this one. It started off beautifully, and I was almost giddy. Callihan is a superb writer; her narrative is tight, her dialogue flows. And the cover is simply gorgeous. Unfortunately, the story structure did not work for me. I found it more than a little frustrating. The setting jumped from the present to 14 years in the past. It seemed that every time the tension in 1881 grew tight -- bam! -- I'd be back in 1867. And that peace [...]

    6. 3.5 ✭ Would round up for Win but Poppy!Conflicted with the rating here. I liked it but didn't love it.Poppy & Winston. Their marriage is in a bit of trouble and they are separated. Not for lack of lovebut for secrets that have been revealed. Poppy kept a lot of them and when they came to light in the previous book in the most viscous way.t was destroyed.I get and appreciate where the author wanted to go with this one. The whole "what would you give up for love?" thing. Would you pretend to [...]

    7. Oh well, I am clearly hooked on this series. It was action-packed and filled with mystery and passion. What I liked in this series so far:Each installment was unique. None of MCs bugged me.No BS. (Fingers crossed it will stay this way:/)Excellent pace.Even though the world building lacked complexity, bits of surprises and new information added layers to the story.

    8. The third book in the Darkest London series… And Poppy and Winston take centre stage. I was both excited and uncertain about reading Winterblaze. Why I had some doubts?1. I disliked Poppy in Firelight and Moonglow and wasn't particularly keen on reading her POV. I hated that she lied to her sisters about their powers, her own powers and their mother. Poor Miranda (Firelight) thought she was a freak because of her fire powers and Daisy (Moonglow) was just as confused and shocked when she discov [...]

    9. 5+++ stars!The gloomy streets of London are the backdrop to WINTERBLAZE, the third book in Kristen Callihan's Darkest London series. It is the perfect setting for an action- filled romance and I get giddy just thinking about returning to this world!Kristen Callihan is a master storyteller. She displays her unique talent for plotting and pacing with absolute ease, yet I cannot fathom the amount of planning it takes to pull off what she has accomplished in WINTERBLAZE. The resolution is perfectly [...]

    10. I had to restrain myself from picking up this book as soon as I’d finished the previous one, Moonglow. I’ve become a big fan of this series, but as there are only six books in it so far, I’m trying to ration myself! Clearly, however I’m not doing very well at that, as I only managed to hold out for about two weeks before I gave in and started Winterblaze.The storyline actually begins in Moonglow when Inspector Winston Lane of Scotland Yard CID is brutally attacked by a werewolf, and woul [...]

    11. 4.5 stars!!!The Darkest London historical paranormal series just keeps getting better and better. I am completely hooked on these books, and am EAGERLY awaiting the next installment Shadowdance which will be out sometime later this year.This is Poppy and Winston's book, and their story is a unique one. Poppy and Win are married yet estranged. Winston learned in the previous book that Poppy had been keeping a very important part of herself secret from him for the entirety of their marriage. Win h [...]

    12. “Winston Lane was born when he met Poppy Ellis.” His raspy voice grew stronger. “My life began with you. And it will end with you. That much I know.” It’s been three months since Winston Lane, or Win as his wife likes to call him, was viciously attacked by a werewolf and found out that his beloved wife of fourteen years has been lying to him. She’s part of The Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, also known as the SOS, she’s an Elemental who has the power to control ice, a [...]

    13. I could barely read this book it was so perfect. How am I supposed to write a review? This couple is so beautifully balanced and I couldn't decide who I liked more. A romance about married people of 14 years that fills your soul and makes you swoon? I believe I'm near speechless. This is straight up romantic. Will add more when I find words.

    14. A wonderful blend of historical, paranormal world with shifters, demons and just a touch of steampunk.Kristen Callihan doesn't disappoint with her world building, intense plot and romance. Enjoy!

    15. 2/5; 2 stars; C-I recall enjoying books 1 and 2 in this series so was looking forward to getting back to it when I saw this audio book at my library. What a disappointment. Fourteen hours of meandering, whining, shagging, moaning and groaning. On top of that, the author kept yanking the story back 14 years to fill in the back story, whenever things were developing any momentum in the present time.

    16. The struggle was real in this one. I LOVED how they couldn't stay away from each other but got frustrated because they didn't admit to things they were thinking about hence not bridging the gap sooner. But the end! The end made up for everything. I loved Win, he is a genius and very devoted to Poppy. Loved her as well. She was too devoted to Win and a badass. Overall a very great read.

    17. Warning rant ahead. 2.5-3ish StarsWhat can I say about Poppy Ann Lane?She is infuriating, pig headed, stubborn, and self-righteous and quite frankly a pain in the fucking arse.I haven't liked her since Firelight and I was hoping that there would be something likeable about her. That she could redeem herself but no.Poppy gets jack shite in stars.Winston Lane a former Lord turned Inspector gave everything up for love. He made a deal with the devil. 14 years later he has come to get what is his due [...]

    18. Rating: 4.5 out of 5.Would have been a full five if not for the beginning being fraught with miscommunication/failure-to-communicate-effectively and the whiplash of mood-swings that was giving me a head-ache.For example in Winston's POV he will be thinking about how sexy his wife looks and how much he wants her. He is so enamoured by her, that it was seriously sexy and cute. But from Poppy's perspective, he seems cold and stand-offish And vice-versa for her tooSecondly, I didn't like Mary and Ja [...]

    19. 5 Stars The feels in this book are so full of truth and heart that it brought a sense of realness to the relationship between Poppy and Winston; their pain, loss, fears, hope, love, and ultimately their soul deep connection was easily felt and experienced by the reader In the midst of the epic romance was a supernatural journey that twisted and turned the reader through a maze of manipulations and deceit that brought with it the enlightenment of the characters and a strengthening to their relati [...]

    20. Easily one of the most engrossing, entertaining and action-packed books of the series so far.Poppy and Win have been married for 14 years, but due to Poppy's deceit causing Win's injuries in the previous installment, their marriage is tested. But, through it all, their love for each other has not wavered. And now, with so much more at stake than just their marriage, with so much more to protect, will Poppy and Win believe in each other enough to save what's most important to them?I cannot emphas [...]

    21. Mixed feelings on this one the mystery is kind of sparse and lacked some of the urgency I would've expected, given the deadline (given 4 days to find a woman, they basically seem to wander from place to place asking "hey, have you heard of this woman? Have YOU heard of this woman?"). I'm not even sure how they *made* the deadline they seemed to have another day on the ship before it docked, and then a day in London, and then three days at the house party, and then another couple mpf. And there w [...]

    22. I've got to say, I was a little worried that I would not like Poppy and Win's story. Why? Because they are a married couple. Most romance novels are about the couple meeting and falling in love and everyone knows that once your married, that's it. Marriage equals no romance. So I was wondering how Callihan was going to write their story.Boy did she do a fantastic job! I worried for no reason. Winterblaze read like two different stories; we get to see how Poppy and Win got together through flashb [...]

    23. I love Poppy and Winston, just didn't love their story as much as I did Miranda and Archer's story. Still a great read though. This one had a steampunk feel to it to me. Looking forward to the next book.

    24. Favorite Quote: “My life began with you.“Poppy Lane thought she was doing the right thing when she kept the secrets her mother forced upon her growing up. When her husband is brutally attacked, she is forced to reveal her secrets and the consequences may be more than she can bear.Winston Lane has loved Poppy from the first moment he saw her striding through the train station. Fourteen years of marriage has only deepened his love for her, but when he discovers that his wife has been living a [...]

    25. Winterblaze by Kristen CallihanMy rating: 5 of 5 starsDarkest London Reading OrderFirelightMoonglowWinterblazeSummary:Once blissfully in love . . . Poppy Lane is keeping secrets. Her powerful gift has earned her membership in the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, but she must keep both her ability and her alliance with the Society from her husband, Winston.

    26. I sincerely haven't been enthralled with a series like Kristen Callihan's "Darkest London" in a long, long time. "Winterblaze" just continues to trailblaze the series with a unique blend of historical romance, supernatural elements, and a charming blend of action, humor, and tense stakes. I think the one element that worked against this book might've had to do with pacing, especially considering the frequent trades of flashbacks that peppered the early part of the book. While I understood the mo [...]

    27. Loved it! Historical romance combined with the paranormal and a touch of steampunk makes Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London a must read series. In this third installment of the series, the spotlight is on the eldest Ellis sister Poppy and her husband Winston Lane. The focus of this novel is secrets: Poppy’s secret life and Winston’s deep dark secret past. The story is beautifully woven with flashbacks to the couple’s past. The reader learns about the circumstances of their world and their [...]

    28. I was utterly thrilled when I won this on . I am in love with this series!This series is written so magically and brilliantly that I just cant get enough! I was sad when this book was over, I really wanted more.This is the story of Poppy and Winston. Honestly I was a little on the fence about Winston, in the previous books. But when I read this one I was just loving his character. In the beginning it starts off when Winston found out that Poppy had kept secrets from him and he left her. In fact [...]

    29. 4,5 starsDarkest London is one of my favorite historical paranormal romance series and Winterblaze is another keeper. Like the second chance and a fact that Win and Poppy are married make me feel connected with their troubles.Took some times to not imagine Paul Marron as Win, tho, since the hair color is a little bit wrong :p
