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....

My Thoughts

This took less than a week for me to finish! This earns it a star just for that! lol.

This book starts off right after a week of Darkfever. Mac is convincingly more mature. I think I hated her less in here. But overall verdict on Mac, I would say she grows a lot in this book, she is even a little darker and she is aware of it. The dark side of her is hiding but it feels as if it's waiting for the right kind of pus to be let out of it's shell. There are still three books left, I have a feeling we are just seeing the start of a dark Mac. I am really curious to find out how *IF* she even turns to the dark side.

Barrons *I think it's supposed to be Barrons not Barrens. What's up with the first part's spelling thing I don't know =/* is still an unknown species. He is definitely not sidhe-seers or Fae, but we still don't know what he is either. Some of the parts of Barrons did, I was a bit uncomfortable with. But I think I got past that throughout the novel. Barrons is ALPHA male, there is nothing tender about him. He doesn't even mind chaining Mac. Dude, if it was for BDSM or kinky role-play I don't think I would have minded. But that's just too much protectiveness. JS. Even though you know what you did you know you shouldn't have done.
Lol. I think I can channel my inner Mac too. 

V'lane. Someone stab him in the nuts! That's what I felt at first anyway. But I guess he is 'trying' to figure out why Mac keeps on refusing him and he turns off the fae magic for tiny few seconds.


New alliances and characters are introduced.
Mac is still trapped in Dublin *i don't think she is getting away either but one can always see the silver lining*
we are closer to finding Sinsar Dubh.

My Rating For This Book
