DarkFever: Karen Marie Moning

(Fever Series #1)

Product Details
Pub. Date: October 2006
Publisher: Random House Publishing Group
Format: Hardcover , 320pp

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 twenty-first-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 in their hands….

First Line(s): My philosophy is pretty simple- any day nobody'svtrying to kill me is a good day in my book.
My Review: Okay, okay so I am late reading this series but that should not suprise anyone. I get to everything just on my own time!
I am glad I finally started this series. While I thought this book was slow at points it did pick up, and I love how Karen Marie Moning always uses so much details in the stories she writes. I had no problems picturing Mac in my head or Barron's.
Coming into this book I will admit I knew nothing about this series except fellow bloggers and friends raving about it and of course the author ( she is fantastic).
The second I finished this book I raced over to my book shelf and picked up the next book in the series. I can NOT wait to see what happens next to Mac and Barrons ( I hope they finally hook up... I am sure they do, but don't know for certain so hush)!

My Rating: 4 stars
Until next time...

Happy Reading!

Just making my weekly visits to all the blogs I am following :)I laugh every time I read the name of your blog, lol. I love it! And I am totally feeling like a book blogging slut this week, trying to reach 100 followers requires a lot of blogger prostitution, lol.

Check out my FUN ON SUNDAY post and answer the FAVORITES question so I can learn a little more about you.

Have a great week!

Oh my Gosh I love the name of your blog. You should make buttons or something. I would totally get one! Lol. Found you through a mutual blog. I have had the Fever series on the back burner because it seems like people either love it or really hate it. I keep going back and forth with it. After this review I may pick up the first one this week and give it a try!
