Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning
Back of Book Description:
MacKayla Lan'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...
My Rating: A+
I loved the destruction of old Mac in this book. While I mourned the loss of her sweet innocence the same way that she did, the fact that the new Mac is a bit (more than a bit) on the dark side and very much kick ass, was delightful to me.
The author writes her emotions in a way that I felt every pang of guilt Mac did and all the frustrations at Barrons's evasiveness.
This book wraps you up from the first page and transports you to a place you probably would never want to be but you can't seem to look away from. I highly recommend this series and I just can't wait to read the third installment.
