A novel that really brngs the events of 1666 aliveReviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 September 2016
Do not think 'oh, not yet another Fire of London novel' and set this one aside - read this one and don't bother with the others! Apart from the fact that Mr Humphreys is a superb, evocative, and imaginative writer, this story really brought the events of that September in 1666 100% alive. Chris Humphreys has produced the next best thing to a time machine!

Intrigue and adventureReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 June 2019
I read plague first and so enjoyed that I went straight to fire. I was not let down, a great read, well researched and constructed. There is something in the writing that has modernity and nineteenth century language well mixed to give a feel for the time it set in.
Extremely good bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 November 2016
Finished reading this last night - absolutely fantastic book. It is a follow-up to his book called Plague about the Great Plague just before the Great Fire of London, and also has the Fifth Monarchists causing mayhem and trying to assassinate King Charles II. Very, very, good. I was sorry to reach the end!

A lively readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 April 2017
I wasn't sure about the style of writing to start with but the plot certainly livens up, especially as it is driven forward by the spreading fire. I enjoyed the characters and the plot, and especially the backdrop of the Great Fire, but at £8.99 for the paperback I'm sure the publisher could do better on the price
Hits the mark - againReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 December 2016
Chris Humphreys is one of my favourite authors. Everything I have read has been well paced, with good characterisation and enjoyable. Historically accurate, as you would expect, well researched and I recommend it to anyone with even a fleeting interest in the reign of Charles II.
