So, after some serious PEER PRESSURE from certain ladies on Twitter who shall remain nameless *Cough Bellie7 , buckeyegirl31 and Love2Read4Fun Cough* I have decided to read Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning…..
MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman.
Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….
Ok, I will admit that it sounds good. And seriously, after all the hype I was hearing about it……and the fact that I was told I HAD to download it to my Kindle because, well it was faster and they are impatient, lol…that has to bode well right? I am going to take their word for it and push my other TBR books off again, lol, and start this one. Let’s hope I don’t like it too much because it’s a series…and we all know how obsessive I can get about awesome series…..
And coming in January 2011
So with my potential to get obsessive I may be stuck on these once I start. And well, that will mean that everything else better just wait for me. Oh, did I mention that these ladies are re-reading the entire series right now? Ha, so by the time they are done with the last installment, Dreamfever (book 4, which I hear has a mega hot sex scene) I MIGHT be done with Darkfever. I’m a slow reader…I’ll admit it. Some of these chicas can read a book a day. I’m lucky if I can get through a book a week. And so, while I should be writing my review for Deadly Fear…which I just finished so I could read Darkfever LOL….I am off to start this book.
Have you read this series? What are your thoughts? What are you reading right now?
