Fae the love of God!,
This review is from: Darkfever (Mass Market Paperback)
I've been engrossed in this world for a week. Read all four existing books and loved them!This is the start of an entertaining, harrowing and engaging series which tempts the readers to question what makes a good person and what we rely on as unmitigated truths. I know deep, but I'm an English teacher and I can't help but over analyse. By the fourth book we are convinced that we haven't got a bloody clue about anything and as someone who is sick of opening a book in this genre and knowing the outcome by three pages in, that is a welcome change.
In this fist episode, Mac is on the trail of her sister's murderer and has taken a hop of the pond to Ireland from Atlanta. On departing her home country, she a perky blonde with no real ambition and little thoguht other than to press the Garda into reopening her sister's case. It shortly becomes apparent that something is very wrong with Ireland and her perceptions of the world and its inhabitants. The strange, enigmatic and grumpy Barrons grudgingly agrees to train her to accept this new world for fees and tasks that he chooses.
I'm addicted to these books, but the last of the series isn't released until January 2011 so if you are a devourer of books like myself wait a few months and save yourself the agony of having to wait for the concluding chapter.
