MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….
This book was recommended to me, actually bought for me by a friend. She couldn’t stress enough to me how she wanted me to read this book and she what a great Author Karen Moning is, What my thoughts were on this book.
Well here my thoughts go…
This book is Intriguing, Baffling, Exciting, Humorous, Sad at times, suspenseful and just all around one of the best books I have ever read. I am so glad I finally started reading it and when I did I couldn’t stop, didn’t want to stop. It takes you from this nice world into a very dark world where you just become so involved in what you are reading you are in the story. Its the world of the dark Fae and they are I have to say some really ugly nasty creatures she created, But the characters themselves are great and you will come to love them and enjoy them. The end however did come to a abrupt stop and I really hate that butsince this book has been out for awhile adni was just introduced to it then I am lucky enough to get to read the next book immediately. Bloodfever.
Ok you have Mac aka Mckayla Lane who is the main character a 22 yr old basically stuck up pretty southern girl who cares about nothing but sitting by the pool tanning, what color pink finger nail polish is her favorite and if they discontinue it what is she gonna use for a backup color, her wardrobe basically consists of pink, maybe some other bright colors but nothing dark, she has to have her pink lip-gloss and sparkly shoes. so you get it right she a blonde long haired Barbie.
She has a sister Alina, 2 yrs older who went off to college in Ireland- Dublin to be exact. while Mac’s parents are on vacation she gets a call to come identify her sisters body that has been mangled they have a close coffin funeral, the Dublin police are doing nothing basically so mac decides to go there herself and find out what happened to her sister after hearing a message on her phone, that was broken at the time, she got 4 hrs before her sister was killed and it made no sense to her. she end up in Dublin stumbles lost into a book store and meets this man Jericko Barrons who is kinda sexy scary to her. So she’s looking to out what this word means her sister tells her in the message “everything depend on this”, Sinsar Dubh. so When Barrons finds this out he questions her and hse gets a attitude he goes to grab her and she is saved by her cab then in the middle of thee night he show up at her hotel demanding answers, this doesn’t turn out so well for Mac, so eventually Barrons becomes her mentor of sorts . she runs to him cause she’s seeing freaky scary things and she just knows he can help her, these would be the Fae. Mac learns she’s a sidhe-Seer which is very rear and she can see them in their true from. she actually turns out to be a Null which she can freeze the when they get close which gives her the chance to kill them, which is not a easy task we come to find out. Theirs all kinds of creepy things out I the night and she sees everything , the Shades that leave nothing behind but your clothes after they eat you,Undeelie and Seelie, Tuatha De which is just a highly advanced race from another planet. she finds out there is a doorway that brings them here Tabh’rs they call it and she sees this so called vampire which i’m still not sure that he is or isn’t one yet. But I do believe he has something to do with her sisters death and she meets all these so called people Barrons takes her to looking for the OOPs as she calls them that lets you read this book. They need them all if they find the book to begin with and these weird people have them or at least a piece of what they need to bring them all together. so towards the end of this book Mac finds this Mullens guy the vampire or not, opening this doorway bringing in all these nasty killer fae and she freaks out and kills them almost all and Barrons comes to her rescue just as she is thrown across the room and beatin and broken, so when she wakes like 4 days later she wants to know what Barrons is cause he sure is not human in my opinion and she doesn’t think so either. he just says he is a man. hummm..i’m not so sure just yet. But she can’t do too much more at this point without him especially cause she’s all beat up and has a broken arm. ad yeah it comes to a end. no book is found , no killer is found and you just found out Mac is something she didn’t know she was and her sister was too. and did I mention when she calls home her mother is always sleeping and her father wants her to come home NOW because she asks if she was adopted and she was so sure he would say no honey you were not your our daughter born and breed right here in the south. well Mac didn’t hear that she heard honey your always our daughter we need you here with us to heal now we love you, come home I am buying you a plane ticket. So now she is more then ever determined to find out who she came from and just what the hell her parents know about this but that will have to wait until she comes home and she is not going until she finds this book with the Barrons and Finds her sisters killer also.
Now if you haven’t read this book I really recommend it and just think you can read all of them in a row until you come to the last one which I think is like 5 books later until you have to wait until next year to find out what happens. But from what I hear and have read these book just keep getting better and better and the cliffhanger are a killer so I am very glad I can read them all in a row up to a point that is.
