Kristen Callihan: Moonglow ja Winterblaze

Kristen Callihanin Firelight-trilogian kaksi seuraavaa osaa ovat Moonglow ja Winterblaze, joiden tarinat ovat jotakuinkin ensimmäisen romaanin toistoa, pienin juonellisin muutoksin.

Historiallisiin viihderomaaneihin on leivottu sisään monenmoista yliluonnollista ainesta, siinä määrin että tulos alkaa pursuilla ulos muotistaan. Jotakuinkin mallikkaasti kirjailija tarinoitaan kuitenkin pyörittää, pystyen välillä jopa välttämään kohtuuttomuuksiin menemistä juonenkäänteiden punomisessa.
