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)
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.
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.
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.
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 would recommend this to a friend if only for the story. The story is great! The narrator isn't really that great though. She pulls you out of the story and anytime that she spoke as the male roles they sounded squeaky and Barrons sounded like he was something from a video game I played as a kid.
Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante.
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.
Bibliophile and student of life.
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.
absolutely in fact I have my sister and me both love this series I'm trying to get my son to read it cuz he's Twilight fan but I think he would really like this one as well only because it's got such a unique story line
I love the banter between Mac and barons and Vlane
I've read the book and what you get through the audio version is almost like a movie version of your favorite book only they don't cut out any of the good stuff
absolutely unfortunately I work for a living but every time I had a lunch break I'd be in my car listening to my book
I recommend getting all of them and I will definitely be listening to them again
Fantasy & Sci-Fi lover who mostly refuses to read books without their audiobook counterparts. How else can a girl get any housework done?
Absolutely! Actually, I already have recommended this to several of my friends and they loved it! The storyline is intriguing and I love Mac and Barrons! I found that these books get better and better. The story is slightly slow-building, so stick with it. You won't regret it.
All the other books of the FEVER series and the spin-off called ICED. Honestly, I can't think of anything that I can truly compare this to. Yes, there are other books out there about the Fae, but this story is absolutely unique in its own right.
This is the only negative thing I can say about this audiobook. Joyce Bean is not right for Mac or this series. Her voice for Barrons is terrible. She makes him sound like a creepy old leprechaun. I found that I eventually got used to her voice though, so it didn't bother me after a while. The good thing is, you only have to deal with her as a narrator for one more book. After that, they bring Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante on board as narrators for the rest of the series and holy cow, they are simply outstanding!
I had many laugh out loud moments, mostly because of Barrons. :)
