I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who’d get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic. When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I’ve learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it….
MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets. In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh–a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious. For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.…
This book was significantly more exciting than Dark Fever. For me this book was ultimately one mystery after another – very few of which are solved. And just when you think you’ve figured it out, you realize your wrong again! The problem is, Mac is still incredibly confused about the world she’s become an integral part of – and therefore – so are you. This fact makes for incredible mystery at ever corner, especially in regards to the irresistible and all-too mysterious Jericho Barrons. V’lane remains a giant question mark for me… and I’m not sure sure about Christian or Rowena, either.
My favorite part of this book though, is Mac. She’s developed so much since the first book; While you still her sweet, coiffed, and bubbly underbelly from time-to-time, she’s quickly becoming a much tougher, stronger, and more kick ass heroine. And her relationship with Barrons continues to grow, change, and excite as she changes as a character.
Prepare to be confused, excited, grossed out and titillated. Can’t wait to read the next one!
