Firelight was a romance masquerading as a PNR/Fantasy book which didn't make me dislike it exactly but ultimately disappointed me. I'll give it 3 stars for effort and originality because Archer's secret was quite intriguing and very interesting once revealed and explained. I just didn't get swept up into the story which kind of meandered along until the action bits at the end. The biggest peeve I had was with the way Miranda's powers didn't warrant much of a ripple in the story except for when she had to save the day. Boo! I am intrigued by characters anchoring the second book in the Darkest London series but might wait for reviews before jumping in.
