Description: I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets...

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

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.

Still grieving for her sister, Alina, Mac has wants more than just answers and justice. She wants blood. She wants revenge. Fully convinced that Alina's boyfriend, Darroc or the Lord Master as he is widely known, is the one who killed her she won't stop at anything to get it.

It seems that everyone wants a piece of Mac. Barrons wants her around to find the Sinsar Dubh for what he claims to be his personal collection. V'lane wants her to find the book for his queen. Rowena, the Grand Mistress of the sihe seerers just wants her to join their ranks and be a good soldier. Darroc wants her dead. What it all comes down to is the two major powers, Barrons or V'lane. Barrons has saved her life, but still remain mysterious and cold. And Mac knows she cannot trust him. V'lane on the other hand answers her questions and tells her what she wants to know. But she's not completely sure of his true intentions. Plus he's fae and have trouble trusting him.

This is probably my third favorite in the series. The pacing definitely picks up.  We get more questions than answers, especially where Barrons is concerned. We get several hot scenes between Mac and Barrons. And once again he saves her life. If you loved Darkfever, this one will blow you away.

Rating: 5/5
