Synopsis: They may have stolen my past, but I'll never let them take my future.
When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the insatiable, immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, MacKayla Lane is caught in a deadly trap. Captured by the Fae Lord Master, she is left with no memory of who or what she is: the only sidhe-seer alive who can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of arcane black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds.
Clawing her way back from oblivion is only the first step Mac must take down a perilous path, from the battle-filled streets of Dublin to the treacherous politics of an ancient, secret sect, through the tangled lies of men who claim to be her allies into the illusory world of the Fae themselves, where nothing is as it seems--and Mac is forced to face a soul-shattering truth. "Who do you trust when you can't even trust yourself?
The story picks up right where Faefever left off in Mac is in the process of having multiple situations going on with multiple Unseelie princes. She's becoming priya, which is there a version of a basically fae sex addict, and it's not pretty. At first I was really ticked off about this happening to Mac. She was raped by 3 death by sex fae princes and a 4th which his identity is unknown. Thankfully at least something came out of that whole ordeal. Which doesn't make it any easier to digest, but at least it wasn't pointless.
Barrons to the rescue! He goes in with men that are as big and bad as him and grab Mac. Still, we get no clue what he is, correction- what they are. Now we have a whole new group of secondary characters to add another layer of depth. Back to the topic at hand, how does one go about bring a priya back to normal? Hmm...well it's pretty ironic...and convenient- for Barron's that is. Even with all of that going on, the we get to see a different side of him. He seems caring, fun and just different with this version of Mac. It almost makes me like Barrons. Almost.
The new question is; what is Mac? Who is Mac? Mac's developed a few new skills as a result of her turning priya. But what are they? She's now immune to a certain type of fae and a few more handy abilities and she was quick to use them on Barrons. It looks like she can now also ignore "Voice". She's also much stronger and in shape! Can having sex nonstop for months get you into shape? I guess with Barrons it does.
I appreciate that the Moning drops reminders here and there telling us how long this situation has been going on because it's hard to tell how much time has past. It's almost hard to believe that all four books took place only over a span of about six months with the fact that two of those months she was held captive and we didn't get to experience that.
Last, but not least, of course Moaning does it again, she leaves us with another massive cliff hanger. The part where something big is about to be revealed...then nothing. Sorry, wait until the next book. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.00. Yep. Thankfully for me, the next book, Shadowfever is already out so I don't have to wait!
