I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets ...

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh - a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can't trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V'lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

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.

This is book 2 in the 'Fever' series, and kicks off where the first book left off. Mac is recovering from the beating she took at the end of Darkfever, and now she has even more problems. The detective covering her sister's case has been murdered, and now another police detective is watching her every move, her father is desperate to get her home safely, possibly desperate enough to even chase her to Dublin, and it seems that the unseelies (in particular the shades) are still very much out to get her. Then there's the grim reaper who appears to be following her (although no one else seems to be able to see him), as well as the matter of the person who murdered her sister still at large. As it stands she's still being used as Barron's very own OOP (object of power) detector, and whilst she is currently taking the spear everywhere with her, still has no idea where the Sinsar Dubh is. She's also still got the strange old woman seer to deal with, the worry of what really happened to the vampire Malluce, and Barrons to figure out on top of it all! Just how many people are looking for the Sinsar Dubh though? How far will they go to get it? And will she ever get revenge on her sister's murderer? I enjoyed this book, although it did seem very slow in places, but then fast-paced in others, which was a little irritaring. Thankfully the last 20% of this book saved it for me! Mac was her same sweet southern self, even after all she'd been through, and Barrons continued to be a bit of an enigma. There were plenty of nasties about, and some seriously disgusting choices that Mac had to make in order to stay alive. There were also some intruiging events right at the end which make me curious to see what lies in store for Mac in the next book. 7.5 out of more

Bloodfever is the second installment of the Fever series. I have not included any spoilers but there might be a few from the first installment, Darkfever. The Lord Master is freeing the darkest enemies imaginable. He is letting them roam free among humanity. MacKayla can see these creatures and with Jericho Barrons help they must discover how to close the portal. Since the first installment of the Fever series, MacKayla has grown and matured a lot. She is still coping with the death of her sister but that only fuels her passion for stopping the Lord Master. We still see a glimpse of the old MacKayla with her dreams of having a normal life with lots of pretty rainbows but now she has some harsher edges which helps her in the end. Jericho and MacKayla are still hunting for Fae artifacts. She has started to get use to Jericho's way of working but at times she still is very frustrated. The pull between the two of them is very palpable and we are always on the edge wondering if they will take the next step with each other. MacKayla comes upon others that are like her and now she sees that she has other options then Jericho. Seeds of doubt are placed in her mind from both sides leaving her conflicted. Should she continue her allegiance to Jericho or set out on a new path to learn more of what powers she possesses. Another blow against MacKayla, she has learned that her sister's ex-boyfriend and murderer, Malluce, is still alive (or as alive as one could be in his state). He is out for revenge and he is not going to hold back. And if that isn't enough, V'lane the Fae prince is still coming to her in all is sexual glory. Once again Moning has created a fast-paced gripping read. The reader is wrapped up in MacKayla's life and near death and when Bloodfever ends our fingers tingle to pick up the next installment, Faefever, with feverish more
