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.)

    A book well worth reading

    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.

    Great Story

    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.

    Highly Recommended

    The only criticism of the Dirk & Steele Series is that they cannot be written fast enough. In this latest book the author explores the story of Eddie and Lyssa and their fire talents. Both have PTSD from traumatic childhoods and together learn to control their talents and explore their growing attraction to one another. It is a wonderful romance with adventure and thrills that draw the reader into the story from page one. Another great addition to the Dirk & Steele saga.

    Good Read

    Once one reads one book from this series, it is impossible to not read the whole series. Bunny

    Dragons in Manhattan

    I love the Dirk & Steel series and this was an excellent addition. Several characters from previous books make appearances here which is always nice. This is the story of Eddie, whose power over fire is still a bit out of control, and Lyssa, the woman he goes to New York to save. She's got a serious problem with a witch who has been hunting her since childhood, friends to protect from the witch's minions, and some control issues with her dragon half. The story moves fast and furious for most of the book and it's nice to finally learn more about Eddie's past. A great read from an excellent series.
