Callihan’s dazzling fifth Darkest London historical paranormal is the best installment yet. Will Thorne has vowed revenge on the enemies who cursed him with uncontrollable madness, and he believes one of the culprits is reclusive Holly Evernight. Holly knows someone is trying to kill her, but doesn’t know who. When Will shows up on Holly’s doorstep, she thinks she’s found the killer. After the misunderstandings are sorted out, Will turns into a reluctant protector, and the chemistry crackles. As they search desperately for the sources of their respective threats, their bond intensifies, but will they live long enough to enjoy it? Callihan throws in several thrilling twists while laying the framework for the next novel, and offers glimpses of the happy endings enjoyed by previous protagonists. This top-notch series just keeps getting better. (Aug.)
