Book Review: Firelight
Book 1 in the Darkest London series (not to be confused with Firelight by Sophie Jordan)
AUTHOR: Kristin Callihan
GENRE: Urban fantasy, witches, romance
PREMISE: A sort of Urban fantasy retelling of beauty and the beast.
MY REVIEW: This review will be short because honestly I have little to say about this book. It is what it is. I did love the world building going on in it but really other then that there's nothing really I can rave about in this book that hasn't been done in a million other books.
Plot is basically a Beauty and the Beast redo with mystery added, characters are okay but not really memorable, romance is predictable, writing is decent enough, and basically the book has a been there done that feel to it. It's fine. It's just not OMG-you-must-read-this-now-book. Rec to urban fantasy fans as a library read.
WHO SHOULD READ: Urban fantasy fans
MY RATING: Three out of Five corsets
