Synopsis- He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.
When MacKayla Lane receives a page torn from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil that it corrupts anyone who touches it.
Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shapeshifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, a lethal Fae prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man of deadly secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.
My Review- Another great book in the series, Faefever picks straight up from the previous book and we enter another fun adventure narrated by the very colourful and fun Mac Lane.
Mac is still on the search for the Dark, evil book despite it almost killing her every time she is close. She knows she needs it but her distrust of the men in her life is hitting a crescendo and she can't bear to let them near such a powerful object. Barrons, the creature yet unnamed (though I feel I may have an inkling of who and what he may be now) is becoming shadier, more distant and even less trust worthy than he was before. I disliked the way his character acted a lot in this book. Though I feel it's purposeful by the author for future character development. He was even more controlling and absolutely awfully invasive of Mac's mind while teaching her to resist mind control powers. He was horrible to her, in the name of teaching, and she either let's it go too easily or she forgives him when he apologises with gifts! The girl needs a serious backbone with him. He is awful to her and there are becoming less reasons for him to be this way with her now. She is a fricken warrior (who makes a few very silly decisions but hey we can't be perfect).
Despite that, the story was once again fun and full of twists and turns and feeling genuinely confused for Mac as she tries to figure out who she trusts and who is less harmful to her. She feels so alone and it tugs on my heartstrings. V'lane came across almost sweet and kind compared to everything else happening. And wow did we get left on a cliffhanger there! Mac and the whole of Dublin is in deep trouble and I can't wait to see how it goes in the next book.
