“Anyone who loves my work should love hers.”

A pyrokinetic former thief who fears the destructive power of flame at his fingertips…A beautiful shapeshifter with fiery talents of her own hiding in the tunnels below Manhattan from those who destroyed her family and her race…Put them together and you have Within the Flames, a powerfully sensual and totally gripping new Dirk & Steele romantic adventure from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu. One of the boldest, most exciting and original voices in  paranormal romance, Lui returns once more to the supernatural detective agency she made famous, a heroic covert organization that specializes in protecting extraordinary beings. This is strange excitement, a deeply emotional, brilliantly conceived and executed winner by an author on a par with Christine Feehan, Jeaniene Frost, and Nalini Singh.  Within the Flames is a must-read for paranormal aficionados. Remember: “If you have yet to add Liu to your must-read list, you’re doing yourself a disservice” (Booklist).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Flames of romance and passionate protection of loved ones join with lots of literal burning as pyrokinetic Eddie features in Liu’s 11th Dirk and Steele Detective Agency paranormal (after 2010’s In the Dark of Dreams). The agency sends Eddie to protect Lyssa, a young dragon shape-shifter being hunted by the powerful Cruor Venator witches. He finds her fearfully living in the sewers under Manhattan, and they quickly bond over the woes of fire-related powers and losing their families to evil forces still on the loose. Wary of their sudden connection, Lyssa and Eddie both must conquer their fears of mighty opponents, their own powers becoming corrupt, and opening up to one another. The psychology is delightfully complex, though the morality is a touch simplistic. Fans of Dirk and Steele will love this installment, which is also quite accessible to newcomers. (Dec.)

Another really good read from Ms. Liu. So far, all but one of the Dirk and Steele but one have been worth recommending. Bunny PS It takes me multiple times of clicking "submit" and they receiving the "please provide a customer rating. Why it won't accept the rating the first time is a mystery. I have sent many emails requesting help with this problem and have received no satisfactory answer. Eventually I will just stop writing reviews.

I've been waiting for Eddie's story for ages, and it was worth the wait. I enjoyed Eddie and Lyssa's romance, but I also enjoyed the mystery aspect of the novel. I enjoyed finding out a little more of Eddie's history.
