My english review :

What a pleasure to find Archer and Miranda, my favorite couple of the moment in paranormal romance! This prequel backs on many things already mentioned in Firelight, some elements which hadn't been detailed in the novel. The story takes place chronologically before the events of Firelight, ie just after the brief and unexpected encounter between Benjamin Archer and Miranda Ellis that famous night when he saved her while she was about to be assaulted by two men. But they don't meet again. We follow each other leading their lives separately.

Concerning Miranda the origin of her power remains a mystery. However we understand better how the warehouse burned down and how her father forced her in response to this incident to become a pick pocket. We also learn quite a bit about her romance with her ​​former childhood friend, Martin. Archer on his side undertook a long trip to find a cure that would end his curse. From Egypt to the United States, through Mexico, we follow him in his quest. There are also some details of his banishment by the members of the West Moon Club.

It was very interesting to discover all that. There are some pieces of the puzzle that fall into place here. The mystery surrounding Archer is kept (thankfully) however I think it's better to read this prequel after Firelight rather than before because what makes the charm of this novel is precisely all these mysteries around our two heroes. This novella is a good supplement for those who loved this couple and want to find some more information about them before moving on to two other heroes that will appear in Volume 2, Moonglow whose release is planned in the United States in August 2012.
