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).

User Review  - SunnySD - LibraryThing

Two people trapped by secrets, cruelty and the strangeness of their own powers find one another and overcome incredible odds to make a life together. Perhaps not Liu's strongest novel, but I'm glad Eddie finally got to find his other half. Read full review
