Prequel to Firelight.

After a fire consumes the Ellis family fortune, the beautiful and resourceful Miranda finds herself faced with an impossible dilemma: enter a life of petty crime or watch her family succumb to poverty. But once her fiancé learns of her descent into danger—and of the strange, new powers she's discovered—saving her family may come at the high price of her heart.

When Lord Benjamin Archer's one chance for redemption is destroyed by corrupt London antiquarian Hector Ellis, he vows to take what Ellis values most—his daughter Miranda. Forced to hide his face behind masks, Archer travels the world hoping to escape the curse that plagues him so that he can finally claim his prize.

But once Archer returns home to London, will it be revenge he seeks? Or will the flame-haired beauty ignite new, undeniable desires?

Uhm… well now, this wasn’t bad. Not great but also not bad. Callihan is as good as ever, her descriptions being amazing. Fascinating. Totally fascinating.

I mean, we get Archer wearing a "gallibaya". Which is spelled "galabeya" b-t-dub (just saying). Just imagine it. Nah, really imagine it. Let me help you.



Not bad, eh?

Sure hope he doesn’t get a rash in that thing. There be ugly rashes out there…

Plus a kufiya! Wilson! Image please!!



Archer the Arabian Prince. Yum!

No? Am I exaggerating again? Nah, we're good girls, we deserve some eye candy from time to time.

The rest of the story is pretty boring if you ask me. Not really interested in anything that goes around. Is it because Archer and Miranda are separated? Maybe. Is it because this is actually a boring story? Maybe. One can never know.

Even though this is book 0 you should probably read Firelight in order to get wtf is going on. If you don't you'd probably be confused throughout the book.

Peace out!
