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)

What I Loved: The whole 2nd part of the book! Once the action stepped up a notch, it was non-stop from that point out. The fact that Mac isn't in a love triangle is also very refreshing. Oh I get that there are lots of men interested in her and she has very strong reactions to each of them but it doesn't feel like a love triangle. This feels more like she is trying to stay alive, decide who to trust, and figure out what her life is going to be like in the future. Something everyone has to go through when life changes in unexpected ways.
What I Liked: The first part of the book was needed to give us perspective on all the players in the game. The pacing was a little slow but I think it reflected what was going on at the time. The build up to the 2nd half was done methodically and well. It was enjoyable getting into Mac's head a little more. Also I like how mysterious Barrons is and how annoying that is to Mac. Her reactions are very real to me and she has every right to flip between trust him or don't!
Audio specific review: The narrator still takes some getting used too. She made Mac sound older and Jericho sound very grouchy. Plus I noticed that many of the men sounded very similar so you have to listen very closely. However, her pacing is very well done and once you get the voices they are very easy to listen too.
Why I gave it a 4: I would listen/read this book again.
Who I would recommend it too: This is an Urban Fantasy novel through and through. There isn't an HEA but you kind of get the idea that someone that has been introduced might be her HEA. I think PNR readers will like it too because of the paranormal aspect.
Lot of fun
Story line was light and easy to follow. You didn't have to work hard to follow along (that probably sounds odd but some books if you don't completely pay attention you get LOST)The best part was it was PURE fantasy and some of it was a bit hokey but that had me laughing. Least interesting was the parts that were supposed to convey 'sexual tension.' That is what had me laughing out loud. Pretty silly but in a fun way
It's been a while (can't remember her name) but it was the lead character.
Not in this book... no
Just enjoy it and don't try to think to hard about it....
Creatures, Choices, Alliegence
What happened in the cave with Mak and Barrons. Her epiphanies at the end.
Comparable to the first Fever series narration.
I have read it at least 3 times and listened to it once. I am sure I'll listen to again.
Nothing. I really don't like her as Mac. She just sounds too old to portray her and her southern accent is way too phony. I live in South Georgia and I do not know anyone who sounds like that. It sounds like she should be reading Gone With the Wind.
Most definitely ranked in my top 10 list.
Verbal scuffles between Mac and Jericho.
Towards the end when Mac starts hopping around like a boxer. Kicking petunias.
The scene with her sister at the beach.
I fell in love with this series right from the start. Mac started out as a sheltered, ditsy blond girl and ended as a take-no-crude-from-anyone woman. I listened to the audio books and then read the hard copies. They are that good. My daughter and I are both hooked.
I listened to this book back in March and immediate brought all the sequels. I still think about them as great listening experiences and I've just decided to listen again to help get me through the winter months. I strongly recommend these books (even if the narrator's "southern" accent isn't spectacular).
I will keep this review short by saying "get this book" (as well as the others of her "Fever" series). You won't be disappointed, and will find that you can't stop reading!
Moning's Highlander Series and Fever series are great. Book 1 is very slow, book 2 gets better...but things don't really get great until the narrator (Joyce Bean) is replaced in book 4 and 5. I wish they'd redo 1-3 with the narrarating team from the end of the series.
This is the second book in Moning's Fever series. The narrator for this series changes midway through. If you can endure the narrator for the first book and this book, it gets much better near the end when she incorporates both a male and female reader to help differentiate the parts.This book continues to follow MacKayla Lane on her journey through Dublin seeking revenge for her sister Alina's death. She finally has accepted her role in the end of the world, fae takeover seeming to overrun Dublin. In the end, she finally encounters the Sinsar Dubh, forever changing the road she has to take to ensure both her survival and the survival of the human race.
