It’s easy to walk away from lies. Power is another thing.
MacKayla Lane would do anything to save the home she loves. A gifted sidhe-seer, she’s already fought and defeated the deadly Sinsar Dubh—an ancient book of terrible evil—yet its hold on her has never been stronger.
When the wall that protected humans from the seductive, insatiable Fae was destroyed on Halloween, long-imprisoned immortals ravaged the planet. Now Dublin is a war zone with factions battling for control. As the city heats up and the ice left by the Hoar Frost King melts, tempers flare, passions run red-hot, and dangerous lines get crossed.
Seelie and Unseelie vie for power against nine ancient immortals who have governed Dublin for millennia; a rival band of sidhe-seers invades the city, determined to claim it for their own; Mac’s former protégé and best friend, Dani “Mega” O’Malley, is now her fierce enemy; and even more urgent, Highland druid Christian MacKeltar has been captured by the Crimson Hag and is being driven deeper into Unseelie madness with each passing day. The only one Mac can depend on is the powerful, dangerous immortal Jericho Barrons, but even their fiery bond is tested by betrayal.
It’s a world where staying alive is a constant struggle, the line between good and evil gets blurred, and every alliance comes at a price. In an epic battle against dark forces, Mac must decide who she can trust, and what her survival is ultimately worth.
Here we go again! Karen Marie Moning is not like other series authors who follows a template and they follow rules within their novel. She fights you every step of the way. This is the 7th book in the Fever World and the 2nd in the spinoff series, so I highly recommend you read all 6 before you dive into this one.
Even I was confused at times. Craziness all around!!! Without giving anything away we are introduced to Jada, who is a hardened warrior. (What I will tell you is that she spent a TON of time in fairy. Oye!!! —->> Raising my eyebrows here giving you a hint.) Jada maybe new but her mind knows all and she is out to get her just desserts.
Mac is back, but she isnt my Mac. Gone is our soilder. Not totally but I want her bad-beep back! Seriously!!! Since we all know what is hidden inside her we can let this slide in her personality go. Amazing enough I still adore her. I only hope she redeems herself in the next installment.
KMM’s wordplay is as always impecible. She never strays from that. I have Feverborn waiting in my TBR but since she loves the mighty cliffhanger I may wait until Feversong comes out to read it. I get so hungover from KMM’s word.
4 Stars and a tip of a Nerd Girl Hat
