    1. MILD SPOILER ALERTBurning Lamp is one of my favorite books this years It was complicated, witty, clever and a delightful read It made its place on my re read list and will stay there forever.Adelaide was sold as a teenage girl and she escaped with a mysterious, unstable object She is known as The Widow, a social reformer who has a hidden talent for manipulating dreamlight She was ambitious, difficult, stubborn, reckless and compassionate The Widow gives fallen girls a chance to have a clean slat [...]


    2. I really, really want to still like Amanda Quick She is one of the best plotters of any historical romance author I ve ever read, she is great at including LGBT characters well, heavily on the L and T, as far as I can tell , and she has a few characters with disabilities Further, this book includes people who aren t moving in society, which is something I would love to see of in romance from this era All of these are things that make me say, Yay But all of Quick s heroes extending into her othe [...]


    3. Burning Lamp Book Two of the Dreamlight Trilogy Arcane Society Series 8 Griffin Winters, descendant of the crazy alchemist Nicholas Old Nick Winters, has all the reasons in the world to think he s going as crazy as his multiple gran grandfather He s just turned 36, he s acquired a new psychic talent an additional one , he s starting to hallucinate, and his nightmares are getting worse These are clear symptoms of the Winters Curse And the fact he s the first in his family to get the Curse isn t r [...]


    4. ETA I ve decided to first list the things I liked about this book, so they don t become buried under the link 1 Our heroine is a social reformer out to liberate girls who have been sold into prostitution and gift them with the choice of education and a clean slate Also, she made her fortune in America in Wild West shows with some semi faux work as a medium on the side.2 Our hero is a crime lord with a conscience, forced onto the street by the murder of his parents this and other plotlines bring [...]


    5. 1 8 18 Ammy 1.99Audio 5 chapters in and so far I m entertained I m liking the mystery the MC Narrator is good.


    6. Actual Rating 3.5 StarsI hate to admit this, since I DID enjoy Burning Lamp and found it a nice, easy, breezy read, witticisms and interesting characters included, but it didn t escape my notice that Burning Lamp was just a pretty repetition of Fired Up, but in an historical setting Dialogue and actions and some of the scenes were very similar, and while I applaud Amanda Quick s smooth connections between contemporary and historical as well as all that foreshadowing that we already know occurs s [...]


    7. I liked the first book better, I think Both books are a bit longer than they need to be This series has a lot of repetition, that I get some is necessary, but not to that extent This book has the same premise as before A Winters man needs a female dreamlight talent to help him work the Burning Lamp to help him keep from going insane The Victorian Era holds many new inventions and discoveries, and all of those only fuel the fire for psychic discoveries amongst those who have the talents The origi [...]


    8. Although the Arcane Society is starting to weary me, there s nothing like a good historical paranormal romance mystery when you don t want to think too hard.Plot 1 Adelaide, having recovered from a near trauma in a brothel at age 15, has decided 13 years later to raid brothels and provide schooling and business skills to the women she frees.Plot 2 Adelaide has a weird artifact seething with psychic energy that she obtained during said near trauma What to do with it now that she s returned to Lon [...]


    9. Nothing like a favorite author to get you really enjoying reading Reading anything by JAK is like wrapping up in a big, comfy blanket in front of a fire on a cold evening total comfort reads for me This follows the same rules as all of Quick s books An independent, smart heroine in over her head and a mysterious, capable hero who wants to protect her.What I enjoyed The hero and heroine The crime lord and the social reformer They made a great pair Seeing Caleb and Lucinda again The supporting cha [...]


    10. I feel like I ve read this exact book so many times before There were so many repeating elements I usually like Amanda Quick Jayne Ann Krentz, but this book was boooooring The whole psychic battle thing just doesn t work for me any There s no feeling of real conflict and you know the good guys are going to win so I found myself skimming, just trying to finish.Overall, she s a good writer and I don t want to discourage anyone who s a fan, but I think I m over this series now we ll see.


    11. Another typical Amanda Quick witty dialogue, interesting characters, a satisfactory romance and a touch of the paranormal What s not to like Those familiar with the series will get all the inside references to other characters from other books, but the story can stand by itself and serve as a way into the Dreamlight story arc or the overall Arcane story arc.A fun way to spend a couple of hours.


    12. I like the contemporary Arcane novels best but it was nice to re visit the historical time frame, this time with Adelaide and Griffin The paranormal abilities dealing with dreamlight and shadows in this installment were interesting.



    13. Crime Lord and the Social ReformerBURNING LAMP is the second book in the Dreamlight Trilogy and the eighth book in the Arcane Society series The Arcane series is about those with paranormal abilities The books span historicals Amanda Quick , contemporaries Jayne Ann Krentz and futuristics Jayne Castle The Arcane series overall concerns various people who are attempting to use various means to enhance their paranormal talents for criminal purposes The Dreamlight Trilogy is an internal trilogy to [...]


    14. Cartea aceasta a avu mult ac iune i mult suspans Am lecturat o cu mare pl cere i, pur i simplu, nu am putut s o las din m n Ce m a cam enervat la ea, a fost lipsa romantismului Mi ar fi pl cut s v d cum evolueaz rela ia de dragoste a Adelaidei cu Griffin, nu s sar de la c teva s rut ri i alea alea, direct la te iubesc Personajele au fost destul de interesante Am ndoi nc p na i, devota i meseriei pe care o ntreprind i cu puteri paranormale, mocnind n ei o pasiune i ni te senza ii tulbur toare, ce [...]


    15. If you like Amanda Quick books, then you will like this one One thing I like about her writing is that we rarely see a historical setting for the paranormal.The down side If you have read one Amanda Quick book, then you have read them all Pretty much every hero and heroine are the same, no matter what book Believe me, I ve read most and the male is usually emotionally broken, social outcast even if he is in the Ton and by learning to love our hot chic he learns to live again.Not bad, but if ever [...]


    16. This was a romance with paranormal elements, the second in a series The two lead characters, Adelaide and Mr Winters are talents people with a magical talent Mr Winters whose first name escapes me can pull shadows around him so he is almost invisible and can also induce nightmares in people Adelaide Pyne is a dream reader Winters needs her to help him tune a magical lamp created by his ancestor that may keep him from going insane The story develops as you would expect in a romance There is some [...]


    17. The romance was too abrupt It needed much focus and time spent developing it Other than that, the story was just fine and I liked the characters I agree with those who ve said the story is Fired Up revisited and repackaged as an historical But that doesn t really bother me I liked Griffin as a character and thought Adelaide was fine, but not well developed The bad guys don t figure into the book much at all I can t help but feel JAK is getting a little tired of her own series The series needs s [...]


    18. Haven t read any of the other books in the series, it doesn t matter since the book is very simple and linear It was there, I read it, I am a book slut, I ll eat anything, I am the blob This was fluffy stuff and had at least one leg I don t know where the rest of the remains are, but pass me the Vicks in the dreadful romance novel genre but it could most certainly have been worse.


    19. I thought I would give Amanda Quick one try and was disappointed again Same story line, same characters, same intrugue Nothing different and hopelessly boring It might have been interesting the first time around, but by the 8th it is getting old I think this will be my final attempt to read one of her novels.


    20. Good entry in the Arcane Society series with all the requisite elements Looking forward to the next in the series.


    21. Amanda Quick always provides a great read Burning Lamp was a gift Now that I ve read it, I d like to read the first book in the Dreamlight Trilogy to see what I missed.


    22. almost done, the cover of my book is not this cover, um.I love her books, nice and frothy but complex too, great characters, just the type of book I needed right now


    23. You know, it s unnerving that I stumble upon Mr Pierce every damn time He She literally knows everyone But what the heck, it s basically the first book of the Dreamlight Trilogy all over again But of course, edited in some ways to suit the 19th century Funny how almost everything seems to reflect each other Chloe has a habit of taking care of poor unfortunate souls and goes about her job as a private detective in full on righteousness Adelaide is a social reformer with a hobby of saving young or [...]


    24. Well, honestly this one wasn t as much fun to read as the others in the series since it comes after the one that happens in the future Basically anything important that happens in this one is already given away in the first book of the trilogy If you are going to read this trilogy, I would definitely suggest reading this one first, then Fired Up, and lastly Midnight Crystal It will be suspenseful that way instead of having book 1 give away everything of import that happens in book 2 Writing pub [...]


    25. I love these books I love the interconnected stories and how she seamlessly brings in past characters I started this series, I believe, at the end of the last year and will undoubtedly finish it by the end of this year, and I think that this is the best way to read this series I never would have been able to remember past story lines if there was a year between release dates But, I digress, I loved the couple and the plot, although I will admit, I am looking forward to the end of the Dreamlight [...]


    26. Quick is one of the best at mixing mystery suspense with romance These books in description alone would be ridiculous but in her deft hands makes for a quick and intriguing reading and a fun way to pass some time


    27. This is the same book as 2nd previously, just the names have changed I liked the series but after book six I didn t understand why she kept owing back and forth from present day to the Victorian era Maybe should have been a spin off The repetition has gotten old.



    28. Was not one of my favorite books of the Arcane Society I may have enjoyed it if read book one first It was an okay book.
