Book Description

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Karen Marie Moning's Bloodfever.

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….

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff 28 July 2010
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I had never read Karen Marie Moning before so I didn't have anything to compare this to in terms of more purely romance books. Darkfever is less romance than faerie urban fantasy novel and Moning does that very well. The ditzy blonde heroine seems like an idiot until you get used to the idea of having someone unlikely and maybe for that more interesting as your action-packed heroine. Barrons is certainly not a boring and all-over-the-heroine romance hero but that just makes him more intriguing and maybe even sexier. The plot is very mystery based and we still don't know as much as we would like to by the end of the novel, but it's very much a doorway into the world.
    Being Irish, some of the fetishisation of Dublin irked a bit, all seen from a very very Georgian American POV, but in the end I just kind of liked it being set in Ireland. It makes a lot more sense than having Irish fay in Georgia plus it works well characterisation-wise.
    I would really recommend Darkfever if you are a bit older but like YA books like Wicked Lovely and Tithe, or if you like more adult urban fantasy books like Karen Chance or the more inventive paranormal romances like Kresley Cole's.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Moning masterpiece 6 Nov. 2006
    By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    I just finished reading 'Darkfever',it's a great book, I was completely enthralled, all the usual elements from this author, a heroine you can really care about, humour, danger, a read that has a bit of everything.

    The story - Mackayla Lane, Mac to friends and family, is an unambitious blonde, content to do the odd bit of bartending, listen to tunes on her iPod and just enjoy her quiet life in Georgia. While her parents are away celebrating their wedding anniversary, she gets a phone call informing her that her beloved sister who's away in Ireland studying, has been murdered. While her parents crumble into grief, Mac goes to Ireland to find out who murdered her sister and why.

    Amongst the other strange goings on in Dublin, Mac meets the sexy and mysterious Barrons who is willing to give her some of the answers in exchange for help, when he finds out that she's a Shidhe-Seer (a human able to see the fae and see through their glamour). Mac is also able to sense powerful dark objects, such as a book which Mac's sister Alina hid before she died. Mac is unable to know who to trust, as it is apparent that Barrons is not human and keeping secrets. All manner of fae monsters are lose in Dublin's fair city and they are out to either kill or capture her. There's a hilarious scene in a museum where Mac has a second run-in with a fae prince who's sexually irresistible to mortals.

    Before I was halfway through this book, I thought that compared to her last book, 'Spell of the Highlander' it was a lot shorter and it turns out that this book is the first in the 'Fever' series, so Mac's story continues in the next book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new series 25 Sept. 2007
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Darkfever is a hugely enjoyable book with an engaging heroine, MacKayla Lane, who recounts the way in which her life changed irrevocably following a telephone call from Dublin to say that her sister had been murdered. Mac, as the narrator, is looking back to events which happened over a year ago so we occasionally are told things that she didn't know at the time as we follow her travelling from her small town in Georgia to Dublin to try and find out more about Alina's death.

    Mac's investigations seem hopeless and yet she perseveres but her attention is soon taken by some very strange events - an odd woman accosting her, a strange vision of a handsome man turning into an evil monster, and some unusual shadows. When Mac meets Jericho Barrons, rich owner of a bookstore right next to a strangely dark and empty part of the city, she is forced to face up to some unwelcome new truths - that Mac has skills as a Sidhe-seer and that her life is in danger.

    Mac and Barrons team up in order to search for an ancient book that Alina was pursuing in order to try to defeat the Unseelies who are flooding into Dublin. However Mac is given little information with which to work, Barrons being master of cryptic conversation, and her own mission to find Alina's killer is still important to her.

    The writing style of this book is excellent with Mac, as narrator, a very amusing character whose take on the world can be great fun, even as she's facing evil and dark things worse than she's ever considered. Her descriptions of some of the Unseelie are very amusing and yet her sense of fear as her world falls apart is also very well written.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great first book and we meet Barrons! 11 Nov. 2010
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Mac Kayla "Mac" Lane had a comfortable life in her small town with her family and worrying about nothing more than her suntan or what to wear the next day. Her world changes forever when she receives a telephone call telling her that her sister has been killed in Ireland. Mac decides to travel to Ireland to find out who killed her sister, almost as soon as she arrives her troubles and danger start.

    Mac stumbles upon Barrons Books and Baubles after wandering the dangerous deserted streets she later learns are the Dark Zone. Here she asks about the "Sinsar Dubh" which her sister told her she had to find. Although initially extremely unhelpful, understandably so we come to learn later, events conspire to force Mac back there where she begins to discover what it means to be a Sidhe-seer.

    Mac grows as a character so much more than I expected her to from our introduction to her. She turns out to be smart, tough and able to look after herself (all be it with a lot of guidance from Barrons). I liked how she was able to be some much more than her "Barbie" type looks.

    Jericho Barons is a difficult character to weigh up, he is very secretive and there is clearly much more to him than meets the eye. He is Mac's main source of information and safety as well as the subject of attraction bubbling under the surface. Barrons is hot, mysterious, sexy and dark, in other words exactly what we like in an alpha male in urban fantasy. I'm looking forward to more Barrons in the rest of the series!

    The Unseelie Fae are the stuff of your nightmares! The descriptions of them are hideous and I really never want to meet them. The Seelie Fae on the other hand are as attractive as can be, I won't say any more as I'm trying to be spoiler free!
