Series: Darkest London #6
” Kristen Callihan once again pens a highly detailed, tautly-written book for her readers. It’s apparent that Callihan cannot write a bad book.” ~ Under the Covers
With book six in the Darkest London series, Kristen Callihan once again pens a highly detailed, tautly-written book for her readers. It’s apparent that Callihan cannot write a bad book. With her eloquent writing and talent for dishing out clever dialogue, it’s easy to fall in love with Adam and Eliza’s story.
Eliza is a strong-willed woman and in the face of powerful Adam, she will not falter. So even when he is cursed and only his soul mate can save him, Eliza flees, unwilling to surrender her freedom to him.
As with a lot of Callihan’s books in this series, the backdrop is dark and gritty, providing extra ambience for readers to soak up and enjoy. Paired with Eliza’s personality and Adam’s almost mocking bitterness, you can definitely feel the tension in the air as they speak to one another. I especially enjoyed Adam’s character who seemed to bring this book to life all on its own. All of the books have this darkness to them, but Adam brings something more mysterious as well.
If you’re a fan of either Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk series or Jenn Bennet’s Roaring Twenties, this is another series that expertly melds together various genres to become something new and exciting on its own. I’m already on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book!
