Synopsis: He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKaylaknows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.
Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.
As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds—with devastating consequences.
I find that Mac has begun to come into her own. She's not naive and young, she's seems like she's matured beyond her 22 years. Rightfully she should be with all the craziness that's been going on. I'm starting to care about what happens to Mac, Danny and the others, so that's a good thing,
Between V’lane and Barrons, there aren't any good matches for Mac. It's unfortunate that both men are such losers. Yes they want to keep her alive, but it's due to their own selfish motives. I want an honest love interest for Mac, but I don't think we're going to get one. I almost wonder if it would be better to stop drawing any romantic lines and keep it all about the Seely/Unseely, the Sinsar Dubh and revenge. I guess we’ll have to see what evolves.
There’s a shocking ending in this installment. Be prepared. I won’t spoil it for you, but I will say that ending is devastating for Mac and the reader. Just when you think one thing, it looks like the bad guy will win. But will they? With two more books to go, I think that Mac somehow bounces back. Thank goodness for the note from the author, because that ending was traumatizing. I love when a cliff hanger leaves me with an urgency of wanting to find out what's next. I genuinely feel sorry for those that read this when it was first published because they had to wait a whole year to find out what happened to Mac! I understand, and I'm glad that I'm going through this series back to back instead.
The narrator is growing on me, but I understand that books four and five have a new narrator and I'm looking forward to that. Each installment is getting better and better.
Did you read Feafever? If so, what did you think of it? What about the series as a whole up to this point?
Happy Reading & Listening,
