Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn't sure I wanted to pick up another Karen Marie Moning book - her last two books were too much sex-sex-sex and not enough plot. I dove into this book with a little skepticism. It was written in first person which gave it a different feel than KMM's other books.
This book reminded me why I started reading KMM to start with. She has a vibrant sense of humor, writing witty dialogue (and in this case interior monologue), living-breathing characters, incredible settings and she brought back the plot in this book! I counted two scenes in the book that truly qualify as "erotic" and a small scattering of references.
I'm eagerly looking forward to reading the next two books of the series.
Pub. Date: August 2007
Series: Fever Book 1
Synopsis: 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 V'lane–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…
