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.
I fell in love with Firelight. This book was my universe for 2 days. I didn’t do anything else but read it. One of the things that made me fall in love with it was the Beauty and the Beast feel to it. Archer hides behind a mask because of something that happened to his face, and Miranda is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. The sexual tension was fantastic. It keeps building up and building up until they couldn’t deny each other anymore, and it was magical. Oh my goodness it was perfect.
The paranormal aspect of the book was mild but interesting. It wasn’t until further in the book where I realized that there was much more going than the eye can see. I’m on book 3, and I find that book 2 and 3 have a lot more paranormal activity than in book 1. I’m loving this series!
Overall I think this was a fantastic start to an amazing series! The characters are so alive and lovely. The book has everything. It’s funny, scary, hot, classy and everything made of awesome!
