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. Yet when Winston is brutally attacked by a werewolf, Poppy's secrets are revealed, leaving Winston's trust in her as broken as his body. Now Poppy will do anything to win back his affections . . .
Their relationship is now put to the ultimate test.
Winston Lane soon regains his physical strength but his face and heart still bear the scars of the vicious attack. Drawn into the darkest depths of London, Winston must fight an evil demon that wants to take away the last hope of reconciliation with his wife. As a former police inspector, Winston has intelligence and logic on his side. But it will take the strength of Poppy's love for him to defeat the forces that threaten to tear them apart.
I love the world of historical London seen through the eyes of Kristen Callihan.
Poppy Lane has kept a huge secret from her husband, Winston, since the beginning of their courtship. And when the secret is unraveled in book two of the Darkest London series, Winston is left stunned. After a horrific recovery from a Lycan attack, Winston flees London and leaves Poppy bereft and heartbroken.
This is a story of the strength of love and second chances as the reader watches both Poppy and Winston rediscover what brought them together in the first place. Through flashbacks, the reader travels back in time to when Winston first met Poppy at a train station--and he was irrevocably changed. He knew she would be his wife. But we also learn that Winston has been hiding his own secret--one that makes him question Poppy's true feelings for him.
When Poppy's estranged husband's life is threatened, she will go to any length to protect him. It comes down to a battle of wit, strength, and courage--and someone's soul could be damned forever as a powerful demon seeks to destroy everything Poppy holds dear.
Callihan crafts an amazing tale with intricate detail woven in just the right places and brought to an amazing climax that has you gasping for breath.
I look forward to more from this series as I am sure there is so much more to be told.
