Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Don't waste your time or credit!"

    This book was so bad I couldn't finish it. It dragged on and on. I couldn't find a one thing I liked about it. I am not a prude but really do you need to use the "F" word in every sentence? A real waste of a credit.

    "Disappointed"

    I don't know what I was expecting, but I am very disappointed with this purchase. It was way too fantastic, too much fantastic audio, like the Lord of the Rings. I couldn't finish listening, so I can't even comment on the story. Maybe another time, when I'm in a different frame of mind, another day. I took a chance on this new author (to me), and now I wish I could get my money back. Sorry, I calls 'em as I see 'em.

    "Not so great. Seemed to be one pace “panicked”"

    Story seemed presented in a constant state of panicked confusion (or perhaps they wanted it narrated that way).
    Story line not hard to follow, but story presentation was always in a state of "frenzy.”
    Not a good read for me.

    "Shadowfever"

    This is the worst narrated audio book I have ever listened to. 15 minutes into this book and I knew I couldn't go on. What a waste of money

    "Unexpected"

    I like picking books from my favorite genre(s) that have high ratings and going in blind to make sure I dont pick up any plot surprises in the summary. I guess that strategy finally backfired on me. This came up under sci-fi & fantasy which I suppose is true, but after listening to it for a few hours it stuck me as a little "off" and while out at a book store I went to look for it. Found it in the Romance section and everything made sense. When a guy was described as looking like a Versace model it should have clued me in. Maybe it's a great Romance novel or even a good fantasy novel for a woman, but I couldn't keep listening. Also, the narrator sounds a bit like Katey Sagal who I can only take in small doses.

    "Waste of Money"

    I couldn't get involved in this story, even though I tried twice to listen. Was there a plot? Couldn't tell. The narrator, Natalie Ross, was over acting to the point of being annoying. I also couldn't figure out what category this book would fall under, sci-fi maybe?

    "Not a good read"

    Honestly, If I wanted to constantly hear a whiny girl repeat herself and complain about everything, I could go talk to my daughter. Redundant, annoying, and boring.

    "Does NOT stand Alone"

    Do not buy this book if you have not read the others in the series! I bought this based on audible suggestions, and am extremely disappointed. It is clearly the last in the series (which I have not read), and is very difficult to understand without that information. It reads as a last chapter, not a stand alone book. I've seen other reviews, and apparently, the series is great, but do yourself a favor and start with book one.
