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.Read Less

Love at First Read
Finally I have succeeded in search of a well-written series that keeps me guessing, makes me fall in love with the characters, and opens the door to a new and amazing world. I have found my new favorite read. This series will please any sci-fi or fantasy or romance book lover. The plot is multidimensional, and the characters so well developed you feel like you know them. The originality is so very very refreshing, especially if you have searched through the cookie-cutter romance paperbacks and found nothing but... bad writing. This book will knock you off your feet! Karen Moning is a genius!

You know the saying, ?If You?re Lucky Enough To Be Irish?You?re Lucky Enough?. Perhaps Ms. MacKayla Lane should adopt this motto, for she herself is an adopted Lassie from the Emerald Isle just beginning to accept the fact of who, and more importantly, what she is. We follow MacKayla Lane, a sidhe-seer, to Ireland on a mission to avenge her sister?s death and to fulfill her dying request, to find the Sinsar-Dubh, the million-year-old book that goes beyond mere witchery and is downright dangerously powerful. ?Mac?s? ability to sense what we cannot helps her, and her cohort/employer, Jerricho Barrons, come closer to the answers she seeks. Along the way, what they encounter is almost more than Mac can bear, but knows she must continue to probe the deepest darkest corners of Man and Fae before The Lord Master, who?s also responsible for the death of her sister, can bring any more malicious terror to the world of Man, which has already begun. This second book in the series finds a stronger, fiercer, and a more daring Mac sharpening her unusual characteristic traits, and when offered help she?s naturally suspicious of everyone and everything, as she very well should be. However, we meet a few new characters that will either hinder Mac or help her in her quest with what she needs and what needs to be done. Will she be able to face and defeat the nightmarish monsters that no mere man can conjure up in order to save us? Or will she succumb to living a life far worse than a mortal death? Find out in this exciting second book in Karen Marie Moning?s Fever series.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-08-27 Moning's latest feverish Fae dispatch (after Darkfever) finds that in Dublin the walls are coming down between Man and Faery. That means that the Buffy-like services of MacKayla Lane-the 22-year-old Georgia-born sidhe-seer (or one who can see the Fae) and slayer-are required. Mac is determined to kick the nasties back to faeryland and to avenge her sister Alina's murder by the Fae's dark Lord Master. She's also seeking the sinister Sinsar Dubh, a book of black magic. Jericho Barrons, Mac's enigmatic protector, is a purveyor of books and antiquities (and of course, is a major hunk). As Mac takes direction from Jericho, she must resist the sexy dangers of V'lane, a death-by-sex Fae, and learn about her true family of Irish sidhe-seers. Moning's delectable Mac is breathlessly appealing, and the wild perils she must endure are peppered with endless conundrums. The results are addictively dark, erotic and even shocking. (Oct.)
