My Review (3/3/13):
He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought—and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust. As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister’s diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge... It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth—about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons…and about the world she thought she knew.
WOW! OMG! Talk about an incredible ride! If you’re like me, you jumped into this book within minutes of finishing Faefever; That cliff-hanger ending was just too intense to wait! So, this book picks up right were Faefever left off, with Mac’s rape by the Dark Fae Princes. The writing style changes; Mac is no longer herself and it is done so well! The first part of this book is really awesome and in an effort to avoid spoilers, that’s all I’ll say. But it’s great 🙂
Unlike the earlier books, this one switches between Mac’s and Dani’s point of view. It definitely changes the read of the book, but I think it was for the best. The switches between them are clear and, if you’re listening to the audio, Natalie Ross does really great voices for both Mac and Dani. In fact, this is the book I’d recommend you switch to audio on – Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante do an amazing job.
Mac’s transformation in this book is staggering; Barrons reveals himself in ways you’ve never seen him, and some questions about who he is begin to be answered. We also delve even deeper into the Abbey and the world of sidhe-seers, which is really fascinating and equally frustrating. I found that even though many answers began to reveal themselves, I was left with even more questions, worry, and anxiousness as Mac’s situation grows ever more complicated. And if you thought the last book was a cliff-hanger… well, you haven’t seen a cliff-hanger until you get to the end of this book! Have the next one ready!
