MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.
What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh — a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds. In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves. Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?
From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world... or destroy it.

I was so excited to for this book as I had followed Mac's story from the beginning. Two days after finishing this book I'm still feeling like WTH? After 19 hours you find that Ms. Moning can use a lot of words and say absolutely nothing or repeat things she has said over and over from the first book. This is a problem that a lot of authors run in to, they want to write a series of books but then feel the need to try to make each book in the series stand alone and immerse themselves in back story from the previous books to where the loyal listeners get sick of the repetition. These books cannot be read stand alone and the author ruined the series by trying to make them so. After 19 hours, you would think that all the story lines would have been resolved...you would think. I give it three stars for the story in between all the gibberish but agree with so many who have said editing is a wonderful tool that should be used.
I bought this audio book because of the 5-star rating..I can't understand what is going on and basically I've started listening to it 3 times and still don't "get it" and maybe why I think this book just stinks. Way too many adjectives, and it goes on and on about I can't figure out what??? I might try the other books in the series first, but only if someone gives them to me free...won't pay for any more of this author's work.
