They may have stolen my past, but I’ll never let them take my future.
When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the insatiable, immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, MacKayla Lane is caught in a deadly trap. Captured by the Fae Lord Master, she is left with no memory of who or what she is: the only sidhe-seer alive who can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of arcane black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds.
Clawing her way back from oblivion is only the first step Mac must take down a perilous path, from the battle-filled streets of Dublin to the treacherous politics of an ancient, secret sect, through the tangled lies of men who claim to be her allies into the illusory world of the Fae themselves, where nothing is as it seems—and Mac is forced to face a soul-shattering truth.
Who do you trust when you can’t even trust yourself?
Dreamfever by Karen Moning is the fourth in her MacKayla Lane series and probably the darkest one yet in the series. I have been rather fortunate to have read the first four consecutively, so I have not had to wait through the cliffhangers that have become Moning’s trademark. The usual players continue on in Dreamfever where I am finding Mac less annoying than I did at first, and she is put through quite a few trials in book four, though I will not go into detail as the synopsis quite covers enough without spoilers. V’lane is, well, V’lane, what more can be mentioned about him? Now Barons is a mysterious riddle, we learn bits and pieces about his past and I must say I am intrigued by him, uncertain as to his sincerity, which makes him all the more mysterious. Moning has quite a way with description, if it was not for her vivid descriptions, I do not think the books, and especially Dreamfever would come off as so dark and mysterious. Moning has crafted an excellent series and I am certainly looking forward to book five, Shadowfever with the hope that it will answer all the questions I have built up through the four books. As with the previous books in the series, I recommend Dreamfever.
