Book Blurb: Taken From Goodreads

I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who'd get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.



When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I've learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it....


MacKayla Lane's ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland's shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh-a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V'lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.


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....


BOOK REVIEW:

From 'Darkfever' to 'Bloodfever' I madly devour these books. 2 days 2 books all read to the wee hours.


Mac is still trying to stay alive, carrying her torches with her , holstered on her body. The Spear with her at all times. Never relaxing always waiting, expecting something , the Shades won't let up, always trying to get to  her . Mac is growing, learning. Startling truths will emerge.


Fiona , Barrons employee at Barrons Books and Baubles has decided to show another side to herself, a jealous side . Jealousy festering in the wrong mind can lead to trouble.


Dreamy eyed guy  ( from the museum) pops up again in this book. I am trying to figure him out. What is his place or is it just to show Mac can't afford to have a normal relationship. The Garda, local police are starting to take an interest  in Mac and Barrons and The Dark Zone. Deaths and missing people are mounting. Unseelie are taking over Dublin. More have been let through, wearing glamour to hide themselves.


Mac is starting to come in to her own. She is starting to realise that she too can keep secrets and bend the  truth a little. Barrons is not easy to bluff, but Mac is trying it on for size,  her ability to take charge of herself and do what is necessary to survive.
Barrons is still using Mac aka Ms. Lane , toting her around the place as his personal detector for OOPS and the Sinsar Dubh ( She-suh-DOO) , no matter the pain inflicted upon her by the Sinsar Dubh .What is Barrons hiding ?


V'Lane will inevitably pop up and call in a bargain that Mac and he had struck and Barrons is ropeable. Mac will show Barrons that he won't always get his own way with her, he learns compromise but stays true to being mostly non negotiable. Barrons is letting a slither of a more interested man show through. Just a slither. Not every conversation is tense , there is a smile, a stare of her breasts a hunger in his eyes and a slight of humour. Barrons leaves a mobile for Mac with 3 numbers keyed in titled JB = Jericho Barrons, IYCGM = If you can't get me = Ryodan will answer, IYD = If you're dying . Ryodan will alude to things that makes you stop and think.


New characters are introduced. Are they friend or foe? Will Mac be welcomed or rejected? Will she get the answers she deserves?


Mac will find she has the fight of her life on her hands, the brutality that will be inflicted upon her will be excrutiating . Has it all gone too far?  Will the Sinsar Dubh be found added to Barrons collection of OOPS?


Karen continues to write Barrons with such strength and power and to give Mac's character new strength. Nothing slows down in these books.


I can tell you I have finished 'Faefever' bk #3 and yes in one day. These are not the type of books that let you take a break. Its all or nothing, the momentum of writing is steep. 3 books 3 days they are a blast!!!


FAVE QUOTES:


"One day you may kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find breath is of little consequence."


"Great. then I would be on the run."
"You already are, Ms Lane. You have been ever since your sister died."


If he had been any other man and I'd been any other girl, I'd have called the narrowing of his heavy-lidded dark eyes lust. But he was Barrons and I was Mac, and a blossoming of lust was about as likely as orchids blooming in Antarctica.


"Whether I see the Fae, or whether I'm a man. I believe I've laid your mind to rest on the former; shall I relieve it on the latter?" He reached for his belt.
"Oh please." I rolled my eyes. "You're a leftie, Barrons."
"Touche', Ms. Lane, "he murmured.
