'My philosophy is pretty simple: any day nobody's
trying to kill me is a good day in my book.
I haven't had many good days lately.'

MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that only breaks down 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 ...

" A seductive mix of Celtic mythology and dark, sexy danger." -- "Chicago Tribune"

    Despite the description, I had very much expected this to be your bog standard paranormal romance. Not that I’m complaining, as you all know I eat those up! But this is very much a paranormal mystery and exceptionally well written it is too.After her sister is brutally murdered and the police close the case unsolved, Mac ups sticks and travels to Dublin to find out for herself what happened. What she discovers opens up a whole new world for her, one with fae and magic, where good and evil are more than just words.She reluctantly accepts help from Jericho Barrons, a sexy bookshop owner who seems to know the ins and outs of the world she has stumbled into, and has his own vested interest in helping her. Their banter is hilarious and adds a lighter touch to some of the more serious moments through the book. If I’m honest, I’m really kind of hoping for some hot and steamy action between these to in future books in the series!There’s a fae prince Vlane who has his eye on Mac in more than one way, he is a fae who can control women’s sexual fantasies and there are some hilarious encounters between the two. There are also some pretty grotesque fae, and seeing Mac learn to recognise and combat them is really interesting and sometimes, well, gross.Overall, this is a solid start to the series, there isn’t much of a conclusion to the book, it’s clear this has been written to lead you into the next book and I will read that as soon as I can!

    MacKayla 'Mac' Lane is a blond, pink loving 22 year old who loves her small town, her parents, her sister and she's a little on the spoiled side. Then her world is destroyed and turned inside out with the news her sister, who was studying in Ireland, was brutally murdered. Grief stricken and hungry for vengeance she flies to Ireland determined to get the police to reopen the case and discover the truth. Instead, the truth finds her and she suddenly faces the fact that she is not what she believed. That the world is not as she thought. And she is in every bit as much danger as her sister was.It took very little time for me to get sucked in and get to a point where I couldn't put Darkfever down. I just wanted to keep reading and reading. Mac's voice, the style of writing and the world building hooked me. But I also found Mac so frustrating at times! Shallow, spoiled and bratty. But the writing kept me hooked even when she was being an idiot. Mac's shock and grief though felt very real, very understandable. I think that more than anything gave her the substance she needed to not make me want to give up on her early on.The world building is fantastic. There are great twists and turns, plenty of action, and plenty of gritty, dark scenes with the fae. It's so hard to figure out who can and can't be trusted, what matters and what doesn't. I felt like I was fumbling through the world right along side Mac. I thoroughly enjoyed her development over the course of the book, along with some of her sassiest moments. She may be seen by most as weak and helpless (and yes, she really is at times) but she's not about to get pushed around any more than she can help. Sometimes that bratty, spoiled nature was a very good thing. Something else I really enjoyed, and found surprising, is the complete lack of romance. There is a little casual flirting, but that's the extent of it. This is pretty strictly, for now at least, a story of a girl looking for revenge. It makes a nice change actually, for a young, pretty protagonist to not suddenly fall in love and focus on this amazing guy rather than what she's meant to be. I enjoyed the change of pace a lot!If I'm being honest though, it takes a while for things to really start happening, despite there never being anything dull going on, and while I really liked most of the book (Mac's spoiled, over girly moments aside) I didn't love much about it. And yet I barely put it down. Darkfever has a very addictive feel to it, like it's just the warm up act for something special. The potential in this book and how it left me wanting much more, had me convinced that I wouldn't be making a mistake buying the rest of the series that's currently out (books 2-4) all together. Its the way Darkfever is written, the mystery and some of the character interactions that made this un-put-down-able for me I think, and I can't wait to read the rest! May just be on to a new favourite here!

    I had this book on my kindle for a while before I read it but soon as I started I was hooked. As the story unfolded I wanted to know more. I am looking forward to reading the other books

    A story that is well written and thorough, I think I will continue with the series but equally you could just read this one.

    All the books in this series are great. I've read them twice already . Mac and Barrons are a really hot couple and the world created by the author is so imaginative and exciting.
