Summary: The New York Times bestselling author of Darkfever and Bloodfever returns to Dublin’s Fae-infested shores in a bold, sensual new novel. Hurtling us into a realm of seduction and shadows, Karen Marie Moning tells the enthralling tale of a woman who explores the limits of her mysterious powers as she enters a world of ancient sorcery—and confronts an enemy more insidious than she could ever have imagined.
He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too. When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.
Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.
As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds—with devastating consequences…

I loved Faefever. The series gets better and better with each book.
Mac’s adventure took so many twists and turns throughout the book. I have so many questions, despite getting more answers than ever in Faefever. Mac evened out a lot more in this novel. She became a lot more independent and didn’t want to rely so much on Barrons. She formed an alliance with V’lane, once he started treating her a bit better. She confided in the sidheseers and the Scottish guy who went to school with her sister. She had a lot of options to get some answers without testing Barron’s patience. She was tired of relying on other people to get her out of sticky situations. I loved this Mac. I loved watching her stay true to herself, while also balancing her need for revenge. She was finally learning how to navigate her dangerous world without needing everyone else so much.
It is difficult to review the books in this series for a few reasons. The biggest is that I am going through them so fast, I can’t remember what happened in each installment because I haven’t stopped in between each book to review. So it’s all one giant story in my head and I’m trying to sift it all out! I’m also so hooked on the books and I love the way the author writes. The way the plot unfolds and I get a million answers, but none of them seem to help and give me what I need is maddening, yet satisfying at the same time. It’s hard to put into words how clever the books are and how the writing just forces you into the story with no effort.
I love that these books are part of an adult paranormal series, but I was surprised by the fact that Mac hasn’t actually done the deed with anyone yet. It’s certainly no clean series, as the existence of V’lane has proven, but I kind of love the way the tension between Barron and Mac has been building, while her conversations with Christian are interesting and there are moments I actually like V’lane (when he’s being normal) and it’s amazing. I get the YA tension and angst I crave withtout the immaturity of age. I know Mac is super young for an adult series and naïve, but I love that this series encompasses a lot of what I love about YA without being it.
I’m hooked on this series. It’s addicting. I need answers and crave them. I’m eager for each and every encounter Mac has with anyone or anything. I’m hopelessly addicted to the books and even now, as I type, I’m itching to get my hands on the next book. I highly recommend the series. It’s been awhile since I’ve been so unable to put a book down and I LOVE this feeling.
