    1. This book should have 10 stars only for the beautiful cover. I simply adore this picture I'd give the story a good 4 star rating, but my overall is somewhere around 7 because of the characters <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 cen [...]

    2. A year after her husband's death Daisy Ellis Craigmore is free to come out of mourning. Her unhappy six-year marriage to a brutal man has left Daisy scarred and desperate to taste freedom. Ian Ranulf, Marquis of Northrup is tired of his life. There's little that holds his interest, until he comes across Daisy who has just witnessed a killing by a werewolf. For seventy years Ian has been in exile from his clan; he's kept his wolf tightly contained. Once the alpha of the Lycans, he turned over lea [...]

    3. Well done! A great sequel to Firelight. I think I enjoyed this one even more. It too had a dark gothic feel with an interesting mystery plot, but the romance between Ian and Daisy surpassed my expectations. They worked so well as a couple.I'm not a huge fan of PNR, especially shape-shifters, but this one worked for me. When Ian steps in to protect Daisy from a mad werewolf on the prowl killing innocent victims, the connection between these two was smoldering. He was such a passionate man, and I [...]

    4. 5 starsKristen Callihan has officially made me her devoted fan. Now, that's not just because the name Diana Gabaldon(my fav author ever) is on the cover. Nope it's Ian Rannulf and his wolfiness that made me a believer. Ok, Daisy was kind of cool, too.About FirelightOh, God there was such a buzz about that book. So many people loved it! I don't know, but that kind of made me want to love it so bad. And I did like it. But I didn't love, LOVE it, so I ended up feeling disappointed. Didn't have that [...]

    5. Did I just say in a review for another book that werewolves aren't sexy? Maybe that still stands, but this lycan is. I super adored this couple.

    6. 4 TO 4.5 STARS!Ever since reading the Hook Up, I knew KC was an author I needed to read, and this second book in the Darkest London series was fantastic, even better than the first, Firelight. This book was about Daisy, Miranda's sister, now widowed and ready to finally shed her fear and captivity from being in a cruel Union. A werewolf attack amidst the streets of London puts Daisy on the beasts radar. She survives his attack but must now contend with Ian Ranulf, a man whose mysterious past has [...]

    7. Gently, he threaded his hand through her curls, spreading them about her. “We are all imperfect creatures, love. I don’t want perfect. I just want you.” I LOVED this book! Finally Daisy Ellis has obtained freedom with the death of her husband. Her husband whom I wish I could bring back from the dead so that I could kill him myself. Daisy is sassy, very sensual and has so many scars from her awful suffocating marriage. But her freedom is short lived when she seems to be the target of a vici [...]

    8. A captivating read by the author of Firelight.Now, Firelight was highly recommended by a lot of my friends, the hype was in full swing, and when I read the book I liked it a lot. But I wasn't wowed by it. So I didn't exactly rush to read this book the moment it came out. That was a mistake.Moonglow definitely captured my attention from the start and wouldn't let go. I nearly threw something at my sister when she insisted I take a break from reading it and watch a movie with her. :DAnyway, the bo [...]

    9. Grade: B+ or solid 4 starsMoonglow, the second Darkest London book, has a different texture than its predecessor Firelight, which was slower-paced yet sizzled with sexual tension. What you’ll find in this second installment is nice balance of mystery, murder, romance, and expanded world-building set in alternate reality Victorian England. Secrets and monsters are underlying themes.London, April 1883Three hundred sixty-six days, ten hours, and fifteen minutes after the death of her abusive husb [...]

    10. 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 first book in this series – Firelight– I finally got around to listening to the audio version last year and was so completely hooked that I decided to read or listen to the rest of the series. It’s been a while since I listened to that book, but this month’s prompt of “series catch-up” gave me the ideal excuse to [...]

    11. ARC provided by netgalley in exchange for an honest review!My rating: 3/5 starsFirst line: Lord above, was there a better sight than a woman flush with passion, her skin dewy and pink, her breasts bouncing from the force of his thursts?Favourite quote: We are all imperfect creatures, love. I don’t want perfect. I just want you. After a marriage of convenience, Daisy Craigmore, Lady Archer’s sister, wants nothing more than to enjoy freedom and experience life. Of course, being a widow doesn [...]

    12. I loved Firelight. When I found out it was the first in a series, I wondered how Kristen Callihan could possibly duplicate such an arresting and unique story in a sequel. The short answer is: she doesn't try to. Yes, Moonglow is set in the same world, with overlapping characters. But Daisy has a decidedly different story to tell than her sister did. And Ian is nothing like Archer. Their story is singular, and that is a good thing.As the book opens, Daisy is coming out of mourning from the death [...]

    13. Review posted on Demon Lover's Books & More3.5I loved Firelight, I love Kristen Callihan’s writing, the dark gothic tone, yet, I didn’t love Daisy. At least not at first. Now don’t get me wrong, I did like the book, I just didn’t love it. I feel like so much of the plot was dragged out. That worked in Firelight, it added to the mystery and suspense. I didn’t think it worked as well here. In fact, I think it made the plot slow down. Ian was a sad figure, a good match for Daisy, thou [...]

    14. I've never written a review for this one. However, 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). But slowly and in small doses; never becoming overwhelming. After now having read a few PNR novels, I've found this to be a very important element. The first in this series, Fire [...]

    15. This is the story of Ian MacKinnon/Earl Ranulf and Daisy, Miranda's sister, whom we both met in Firelight. As readers of Firelight already know, Ian -as well as the entire Ranulf clan- is a werewolf while Daisy's a very ordinary human unlike her talented sister. Unlikely as the relationship between them seems, since Ian in the first book was more of a villain than a hero and also infatuated with Miranda, Daisy's forced to accept his protection when she becomes the -almost- victim of a werewolf's [...]

    16. 4.5 starsI loved this one!In 'Firelight' Kristen Callihan introduced us to a gritty Victorian-Gothic London where historical and paranormal romance collided with the thrill of a great mystery. Now, in 'Moonglow' we are returned to this riveting 'Darkest London' and KC has again wowed me with her unique take on the supernatural - just when I thought I knew all about werewolves, Callihan takes keyboard in hand and rewrites the "noble" Lycan creatures.Moonglow picks up about a year after Miranda an [...]

    17. SpoilersMoonglow is book two in the Darkest Londen series, it focuses on Daisy, the sister of the heroine (Miranda) in the first book. After finally coming out of the required mourning period for her despised husband, Daisy is finally able to have fun and live her life the way she wants. On Daisy's first night back into society, she and her would be lover are attacked by a werewolf. Daisy finds herself in danger and soon realises that she may not be as normal as she thought she was.Werewolf Ian [...]

    18. 4.5 stars, rounded up generously cuz I love me a werewolf, and this author writes well.I first read the prequel, Firelight. It's wonderful, so I wasn't expecting to like Moonglow even more. But I did. It felt more emotionally grounded, less cerebral. But it's win-win any way you look at it, because Miranda and Archer from Firelight play a good sized role in this book.Main characters:Ian is a Scottish lord and a Lycan, a shifter who fears letting his inner wolf out, and has never done so. He shou [...]

    20. Posted on Under the CoversKristen Callihan is quickly becoming an author on my auto-buy list. After reading FIRELIGHT and being impressed by the writing style and plotting, I was eager to read the second book in the Darkest London series, MOONGLOW. But I had absolutely no idea how good this book would be until I devoured it completely. Callihan, you officially have my heart.Words cannot describe the amount of love I have for this book. I thought FIRELIGHT was an interesting read, but MOONGLOW ab [...]

    21. I definitely liked this better than firelight. The story flowed much better now that the perimeters of the story were done in book 1. Though early on I figured out who the were was I wasn't certain who the person controlling him was. That came as a surprise because I had someone completely different in mind. Though it was nice for that person to not be the suspect.Daisy and Ian are an interesting couple. And I like how the sisters have their own (view spoiler)[ powers. They are elementals, thoug [...]

    22. reading the ARC version, courtesy to NetGalleyWOW!That all I can said when I finish reading Moonglow. While Firelight is just okay for me (I already forget the story :P), Moonglow make Kristen Callihan is another author I eagerly want to read her next instalment! And yes, Moonglow make it into my Top Read 2012! :)Moonglow basic story, beside from Victorian London, paranormal world and mystery that surround it, is how much do you want to give to sacrifice in the name of love. How to redeem our ho [...]

    23. 4.5 stars - This time around Ian Ranulf is suffering some personal problems related to his penchant for red-haired woman, but when he happens upon the aftermath of a werewolf attack, Ian is going to discover that willowy red-heads can't hold a candle to feisty curvy blonds. And since the killer still has the lovely Daisy in his sights, Ian will do everything in his power to keep Daisy safe from the 'were' while also trying to keep the killer from exposing the existence of Ian's wolf-shifting rac [...]

    24. I fell in love with Daisy and Ian from the very beginning. Having had no real feelings for them while reading Firelight, this surprised me somewhat, but they are fabulous. Daisy is smart, has a strong will, and is absolutely captivating. After years of abuse at the hands of her husband she has some scars – inner and outer – to work past and seeing her overcome them with Ian was perfect. Speaking of Ian, he's utterly perfect. He has demons that haunt him, and fights himself nearly every step [...]

    25. It's always a good thing to kick your reading marathon into gear with a good book, despite this read taking me a little longer than I'd hoped.For me, Kristen Callihan delivered again with the second book in the "Darkest London" series, "Moonglow." From what I understand, this series of books focuses on sisters from the same family. In "Firelight" - the book focused on Miranda, from the way she grappled with her elemental fire powers to her relationship with the accused (and cursed) Lord Archer.T [...]

    26. While Firelight was an intriguing start to a new series, the second book in this series, Moonglow, is what has really gotten me hooked on this world that Kristen Callihan has created.After a run on books featuring vampires and a plethora of other immortal type beings, the fact that this book focuses on werewolves was a refreshing change of pace for me. We learn within the first few pages of the book that Ian Ranulf, Marquis of Northrup is a lycan. This early reveal enables the plot to focus more [...]

    27. On continue l'exploration de la série romance+fantasy, avec la seconde soeur. Daisy n'a (à priori) pas de pouvoir . Après un mariage avec un connard, elle décide à l'issue de sa période de veuvage de profiter de al vie . Manque de bol, elle croise un loup-garou.De l'autre côté nous avons Ian Ranulf, (Ou plutôt Ian Mac Ranulf, ex-vicomte McKinnon du tome précédent et actuel Comte de Northrup) qui va sauvez Daisy et qui (comme on se doute fortement depuis le tome précédent) a un gros [...]

    28. I deeply admire Kristen Callihan for her Firelight book. It was everything I wanted in a paranormal-slash-historical romance. Archer and Miranda were excellent protagonists. The story was decent, and the paranormal element was very interesting. I was having the same expectations about Moonglow. Well, maybe a bit less since I was never a fan of Ian or Daisy.I’m sad to say that Moonglow is a huge disappointment, and it was obvious since page one that it won’t top Firelight. The story is very w [...]

    29. Did I complain for the lack of paranormalcy in the previous book? Oh, boy. The second book had in it supernatural beings that I haven't heard before. What exactly is a GIM? What was the angel-like, transluscent-ice creature that appeared to Wilson? Werewolves, shifters, vampires, elementals, lycans, ghosts, they all made an appearance in the story some more involved than others - only Mary bloody Poppins was missing hoping around in her Carouzel horse.I am intrigued beyond measure for where the [...]

    30. Read This Review & More Like It On My Blog!Sequel Syndrome strikes again! I had been looking forward to reading this direct follow-up to Callihan's engaging and fun first novel, Firelight, for months now. Upon randomly stumbling across and loving the first in the Darkest London series earlier this year, I was eager to see where Callihan would take her version of London run amok with the supernatural. First seeing this up on NetGalley, the anticipation of a good book when I was approved all a [...]
