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….From the Hardcover edition.

4 stars for the story and the world building! -1 star for jokes and some descriptions that really make me cringe and hope I didn't talk like that when I was 22...there's only so many renditions of "pretty" or dressing like rainbows, and suntanning like a barbie I could take! However, the story is SO...
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 f...
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 tradi...
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 ...
Well, that wasn't what I was expecting... but I still enjoyed it... or maybe I enjoyed it more because it wasn't the overly romanticized urban fantasy I was expecting? Either way KMM is a really good writer and I'm already eager to start the next book in this series!The characters are interesting to...
