Book Synopses From Good Reads
MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….

My thoughts 

I have been seeing readers swooning over Shadowfever for the past few weeks, which got me curious and I just had to check them out.

Okay. Well, I did have hard time getting into this story in the beginning but after I started getting into it, it wasn't half bad as i thought it would. Actually the story was pretty good. But too much descriptive on mythical creature and what was that Shisa-du

Mac, urgh... seriously annoying. Not really surprising though, i had been through-fully warned not to get my hopes up about her. She sets out to find the murderer of her sister and finds herself in another world entirely. Fay, Sheer, unseelie, vampires almost all type of mythical creatures exists. Being the stubborn as she is, she stays in Dublin ignoring all the warning and threats. There were some parts she was even strangle worthy. I am hoping I can change my mind about her.

Is it Barrons or Barrens? I am still confused. He is a hard character to define, because at the end of this book I was thinking I would know what HE is but no explanation on what spices he is yet. He saves Mac, he knows about stuff, he knows people, he has a thing worked out with shades, he jumps off of roof.. it's a bird, it's a airplane no it's Jericho Barrons I guess it'll be revealed in other books.

I am intrigued with fae prince V'lane. I have 100% doubt on his honesty. But but but he sounds... idk what to call it either.

I wouldn't call it adult genre but not YA either. It's for a bit olderlings.

My rating for this book
