Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darkfever (Hardcover)
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.
