Rating: 5/5 stars
I absolutely loved the first book in this series, The Invisible Order, Book One: Rise of the Darklings, and was very excited to read this book. I got an advanced reading copy of this book through NetGalley.com. The Fire King is the second book in a planned trilogy. This was a wonderful read and you learn more about the Invisible Order’s past and what will have to be done to save London. It can be read as a stand alone, but the first book does provide good background for this book and if you skipped you might be a little confused at first.
Emily and crew are thrown back to the year 1666 and are determined to find Christopher Wren in hopes that he can save London. Unfortunately other dangerous plans are afoot; one of the faeries is determined to overthrow Queen Titania and burn London to the ground. This evil fae will summon The Fire King to help overthrow the city; only problem is once the Fire King is summoned he can’t be stopped. Emily must figure out a way to save London and she will need all of the human and fae help she can get.
