Once blissfully in love... 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.

"Dark, dangerous, and totally enthralling, this latest edition to Callihan's Darkest London series treats fans to a heart-tugging, satisfying romance, fills in a few series blanks with well-handled flashbacks, and nicely sets the stage for stories that are sure to come." (Library Journal)
I have enjoyed these books immensely! The characters brought to life by Moirai Quirk who is a true wizard when changing voices and accents.
The books are extremely well written with non of the long laborious narratives you get in some books when describing a place or indeed an item of clothing!
I really enjoyed this instalment in the series. I really liked getting to see in Poppy and Winston's heads and learn more about them. Poppy in the previous books seems so put together and Winston seems so proper, it was fun seeing under their veneers and learning their secrets.
It was interesting learning more about the girls mother and who their father really was as well as about their brother. We also got to learn more about the SOS thanks to Poppy. I loved seeing their memories of how they first met and got together.
I also love how it sets up for Jack Talent to have the next book. He intrigued me in Moon Glow and I was hoping he'd get a book as well! I really love this series and I'm glad it will continue past the sisters stories and into their circle of friends.
I loved the first two books and the world that the series creates, but I just could not bring myself to care for the main characters in this instalment and I became quickly bored. I'm about to skip to the fourth book!
