Darkfever: Fever #1 by Karen Marie Moning 99 cents
Darkfever (Fever #1) - Karen Marie Moning

 

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. . . .

Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning I'm glad that I finally picked this up. It kept my interest and really left me wanting more when it ended. Some of the elements are the same as other fantasy stories that I've read, but it also feels like it has a little something special to it. I like that the female lead isn't head over heels for a guy. She wants answers because of her sister, and she keeps that as her goal. I'll continue the series for sure.

Quite an interesting turn of events for Mac in this one. In fact, we don't pick up from her point of view. Instead be get to see through the eyes of another sidhe-seer as Mac descends into madness. A good chunk of this book is Barrons trying to snap her out of it - but his methods are far from traditional. And while I applaud his originality and ability to stick with it for sooooo long, it was really soooooo long and I got a little sick of it. But that is just the first section of the book.

The walls are gone - no more - zip - nadda - gone, and both Seelie and Unseelie are roaming the world freely. This leads to some very big what the hell moments because things are seriously messed up. I really enjoyed seeing Mac explore this new world and adapt to it as things kept getting thrown her way.

This wasn't my favorite of the series - mostly because I want more fighting Mac and less, well, the Mac at the beginning of the book.

I've heard good things about this series and I thought, "I'm going to finally get around to reading this!"  

Warning, rant ahead.

The Good:  I got through it.  Finished it.  World building is interesting.

The Bad:  Mac.  It opened with her working on getting skin cancer (oops, I mean a tan!). She's got zero ambition, so when she up and went to Ireland, I thought, "okay, maybe she's going to grow up."  I got tired of hearing about how much she loved pink, her nails, what she was wearing, etc.  I wanted to smack her.  She had several TSTL moments.  I also didn't and couldn't believe she went from this person who didn't do anything too physical to this awesome fighter with minimal training.  And could she say "Huh?" any more frequently?  

Barrons:  To deliberately physically hurt someone to make a point makes you a bully and an asshole.  He was condescending.  (Now Mac, deserved some of that, but consistently?)  

Will take a pass on the rest of this series.
