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.
Faefever by Karen Marie Moning is the third book in her MacKayla Lane series. For those following my reviews, there are five books in the series and each book builds upon the previous book. I will warn readers upfront that Faefever ends with a colossal cliffhanger, thankfully the fourth book, Dreamfever is readily available. Mac is still in Ireland searching for her sister Alina’s killer, while V’Lane, irresistible to many, and the delightful and mysterious Jericho Barrons are also present and causing difficulties for Mac. Mac’s quest for justice and the Sinsar Dubh will take her into the darkest and most dangerous corners of Dublin. While I was delighted to see Mac’s maturity progress in each novel, the level of violence and sex in Faefever threw me. I was particularly thrilled at minimal romance and quite content with momentary glimpses and mentions in the previous two novels. However, I understand why it was so vital for this book. As usual, Moning includes maps, a glossary via MacKayla’s journal entries, as well as a pronunciations guide. As one not used to reading paranormal novels, I look forward to and heavily rely on these helps. Faefever is the darkest of the MacKayla Lane series and I found myself unable to set the book down, time flew and then I was left with some answers but with a lot of questions and confusion which I hope will be answered in the fourth book Dreamfever which I shall be reviewing next month. Until then, I would recommend Faefever to my readers, just be cautioned this book is the darkest and most graphic thus far in the series.
