"excellent twenty-first century fantasy"
MacKayla Lane is stunned when she is informed that her
sister Alina was murdered in Ireland. When Mac concludes
that the Dublin police seem uninterested or incapable of
solving the homicide, she flies from Ashford, Georgia to
Ireland. Her plan is to light a fire under the cops or if
that fails investigate on her own.
However, Mac is further stunned when Alina leaves her with
a odd cell phone message on top of her sudden ability to
see creatures that do not exist outside of mythology,
fantasy or horror tales. Jericho Barrons insists Mac is a
sidhe seer who has the uncanny skill to see fairy and other
supernatural species. He needs her to find the stolen
Sinsar Dubh, a tome that can be used to open the gates
between dimensions. Mac agrees on the condition he helps
her find out who killed her sibling and why.
DARKFEVER is an excellent twenty-first century fantasy that
brings to life paranormal species and elements in a modern
day context. The story line starts off as a seemingly
straightforward mystery, but quickly turns into a romp on
the wild side as Mac and her mysterious Jericho partner try
to locate the dark tome and uncover who killed her sister.
Karen Marie Moning provides a terific thriller starring an
intrpied heroine who already could see the Fae, but has to
adapt to much more good and evil in a vast universe filled
strange and wonderous things.
