Publisher's Summary

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 21st-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.

    "Is it the heroine or the narrator?"

    The narrator did a passable job with the southern belle accent but I found I had a very difficult time finishing this first book in the series. The narrator did such a good job conveying just how annoying and clueless the character is that I could not separate the person from the character. The heroine walks around in a strange town lost not once but several times in dangerous areas. I found myself calling her an idiot on more than one occasion when she literally let danger in to her room or walked into it without much hesitation or caution. The lead character gave new meaning to lost in a fog. I was with the the story in the attempt to find closure for a dearly departed loved one but rapidly lost interest as the story progressed. Unless I hear the rest of this author on Book Radio, I doubt I will purchase her works again.

    I'm a mother of 3 kids ages 3-6! I love to read but don't have the time. I found that audiobooks are the thing for me! I can't get enough

    "Should have read the other reviews more closely."

    I purchased this book because it was an audible best seller. Most of the reviewers I read loved it. Later when I was unimpressed with the book I went back to the reviews andI realized that this was either a "like it or loathe it" book. I definitely fell in the "loathe it" camp, although I stuck it out and finished the book. I agree with the other reviewers who felt that the narrator did not sound like a young woman, and that is an important factor in my review. I also was unimpressed with the clear simlarities to other well-known vampire novels. Save your money!! Buy a different book.

    "I love this series!!"

    I just listened to all 4 books about 2 months ago and FINALLY the next book came out recently and I can't wait to start it. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm in the middle of World Without End by Ken Follett, I'd have already listened to it. :)

    This is to me, by far the most enjoyable series I've listened to and keeps me riveted and interested throughout each book.

    "Stick with it. Series gets better."

    This is not like KMM's Highlander series. It has less romance, more dark Urban Fantasy. Also, the lead, Mac is NOT very likable in this first book. She's shallow, naive and... pink. She evolves A LOT through the series. I'm not sure I ever loved Mac in any of her incarnations but the world building is fabulous and with the entire series out now the cliffhangers {which are major} are less painful. This series should be treated as one VERY long book broken into parts.

    Now the reader. Not the best, she becomes less painful on relisten but if you can't stand her, read the first 3 books and come back to audio for DreamFever and Shadow Fever. New readers Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante do a great job.

    "Okay..."

    I think that Karen Marie Moning has a good plot/idea in this series, and I will likely listen to another, if I can bring myself to listen to the same narrator again. (We get it, you're supposed to be Southern - you don't have to sound like Scarlett O'hara.) On second thought, might have to look for these on Kindle. ;)

    There were a few things I didn't like... the narrator, the constant references to nail polish colors, makeup, etc, and the feeling that the book just "ended" with no resolution. I have since learned that these books are more serial in format, so I will have to just keep reading/listening, if I want to find out what's going to happen...

    With all of that said - I am interested in what happens next, so will keep this series in mind when I don't have anything new to listen to.

    "Its an intro... nothing more"

    I really enjoyed the Highlander series. I loved the narrator and characters. I always found myself staying up too late to hear 'just a a little more'.
    This book however failed on every expectation I had. I'm hoping this book was just an intorduction with all the background into the dark world Mac falls into.
    The lead female 'Mac', is not one of Ms Moning's better characters. She leaves much to be desired. I didn't feel compelled to pull for her in the dark circumstances she finds herself in. The 'romance' is lacking heavily!!! Ms Moning's earlier books gave me an escape, with some easy light and steamy listening.
    The narrator doesn't deliver the same intensity as her earlier books, which also made listening hard.
    However, if this is just an intro and the series gets better (and you intend to listen to the series), there is tons of background info you'll need to know.
    Now on to Bloodfever..................
