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.

    "Addictive Reading"

    When I first started listening to this book I was fairly sure I would stop listening at the first book. The writing was overly flowery and irritated me. But by the time I reached the end of the first book I was additcted. On finishing each book I raced to the computer to get the next one! The writing improves over the course of the series. Audible has a different narrator for the fourth book. I liked both narrators - they did a great job.

    "don't like the cover of this book"

    I almost skipped this audiobook because of a reviewer that suggested it should have been in the romance section. Overall, though, the book got good reviews. I decided to give it a try. Fortunately, there are only a few ridiculous sex/passion scenes to wade through. I really dislike the cover of the book because it fits right in with a romance novel. That said, I liked this story and it feels like it's the setup for even better things to come. I agree that the main character, Mac, is shallow but I thought it was a caricature of a dingy blonde and that it was really funny (I'm a blonde that can be dingy at times too!). I thought she was making fun of herself. I was actually impressed at the variety of accents that the narrator played. I agree that the main male character was kind of craggy. I also agree that Mac's voice was a bit too mature for the character as written. But I still liked the skill that the narrator showed in moving between those voices. I was always able to tell who was who. I hope the next book skips the goofy passion/sex scenes but I have the feeling I'll have to deal with a few (and I'm no prude). As long as it doesn't take over the book, I'll continue with the series.

    "0 out of 5 if I could give no stars"

    Half of this book was a woman's porno story - not worth the money or the time. every time i was getting interested in the plot, the author would switch to talking about some outfit the heroine was wearing or start talkiing about the heroine taking her clothes off and feeling herself.

    Rediculous book. If I wanted porno, I would buy a movie. Stupid book

    "Engrossing, but..."

    This was enjoyable fantasy with engaging characters. But, be warned--the sequels get very, very graphic and sexually explicit. Far too explicit for my taste. Far too gruesome. I still get a little queasy just remembering it.

    "Didn't want to - couldn't help it"

    I bought this series of books because I was going on a long flight. I didn't think I'd like them all that much. But I was wrong. They are a bit reminiscent of the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon but they have quite their own charm. The tension between the two main characters is delicious and I stayed up a few nights longer than I should have to get to a "stopping" point. (there weren't many) I read all five right in a row and honestly wanted more. The addition of the male narrator in later books didn't add to the story but weren't a big distraction either. Well done Ms. Moning. I enjoyed all five thoroughly.

    "Bad..really bad"

    Wow, this was so bad! It never really went anywhere...there was "0" romance. The story was stilted, right when you thought it was going to be good, nothing happened. The title makes it seem like its going to be a paranormal romance, but its really more of the ugly American in Dublin. Good thing I bought it on sale!

    "dreadful!!!"

    Couldn't even finish the book. The writing was so bad it distracted me from the story- which was mediocre maybe. And I couldn't get over that the narrator- who was supposed to be a 21 year old, sounded very matronly (I'd assumed the main character was in her 40's until the author explicitly spelled out that she (the main character) was a hip 21 year old bartender- all so overdone that the main character felt flat.

    "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.
