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 world 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.

"Moning's delectable Mac is breathlessly appealing, and the wild perils she must endure are peppered with endless conundrums. The results are addictively dark, erotic and even shocking." (Publishers Weekly)
"Spiced with a subtle yet delightfully sharp sense of humor...delectably dark and sexy." (Chicago Tribune)
This is a simple book. If you're looking for profound - look elsewhere. It was entertaining and helped my driving time pass - and for that it earned 4 stars. The end had me downloading the next book immediately!
I have to agree with many other reviewers here as to the narrator. She sounds much too old to be MacKayla Lane and what she does to Jericho Barrons is rather unforgiveable. He is described as a large and very vibrant man but she makes him sound like a tiny withered old man. I really wish these would be re-done with other narrators and am looking forward to the final two books where the narrators are different.
This book is excellent! It really pulls you in! I went out and bought all the books by this author and have fallen in love with every character. The fae are described in detail and the suspense, not to mention the hot sex parts, make it unable to pull away. I will be a fan for life.
Hot, full of angst, enthralling and completely addictive.
I love this series. Book two picks up right where the first leaves off. Doesn't miss a beat, and gets better with each word! You might as well buy this with book three. You will want more when you finish this second book.
Love this narrator. Read this series.
KMM has written a wonderfully addictive series. Start with Darkfever and then Blood fever. The next eagerly anticipated book in the series, Faefever, will be out in September. The characters in the "Fever series" are delicious and the narration is superb. Don't miss it if you like fantasy and romance novels.
One of my most favorite book series! Characters are well-rounded, the story is absolutely compelling and MacKayla is so charming you feel like she could be your best friend. A must-read.
I LOVE karen marie moning; Joyce Bean is a horrible narrator. She makes the main character sound like a complete idiot, and all the men sound like leprachauns.
The story itself is good
Like I said...leprachauns. Even the one's whose accent the main character couldn't identify
The narrator in the last two books of this series is pretty darn good. And it probably helps that they got a man to do the man's voice. It really brings the story out a lot better when you're not super focused on a woman trying to sound like a man.
The concept of the story is great and the characters are interesting. Some of the writing though just doesn't work for what we know about the characters. Also, this book isn't as good as the first one and drags a bit. That said, I'm hooked on at least finding out what happens so I will get the third book. I see that after the first few books they get different narrators, which I am looking forward to. The narrator is not awful, but she's not that great either.
I love books, it's my great escape.
I did not think KMM could get any better, but I am glad to say I was wrong. I loved book two even more. Wow this was good. I love Barrons!!!
Fabulous series and the Narrator is great. I can't wait till the rest of the books come out.
