Review: "Faefever" by Karen Marie Moning

From Goodreads:  He calls me his Queen of the Night. I'd die for him. I'd kill for him, too. When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page 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, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Mac's quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V'lane - an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes; and Jericho Barrons - a man of primal desires and untold secrets - Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

As All Hallows' Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds - with devastating consequences.

Review:  I LOVE the Fever series.  This is the third book in the series and it was definitely one of my favorites.  Mac is a hilarious character but in this installment, the pain she feels at losing her sister is even more raw then before.  You also sense how conflicted she is; everyone who is helping her has ulterior motives and she can't fully trust anyone, even Jericho Barrons who has given her a job and a place to stay.  I had a really hard time with Barrons in this book because he was kind of a butt.  I think the point was to show that deep down he cares about her and worried about her safety but goodness, he is pompous and secretive.  The story had a few slow moments in the middle but for the most part it was very fast-paced, especially toward the end.  I also enjoyed how we got to see more of Christian MacKeltar as well as a softer side to Inspector Jayne (who I kind of like now).  

I don't want to give too much away but I must say the ending was shocking and had a major cliffhanger.  I can not wait to pick up the next book and if you haven't read any of this series, I highly recommend that you do.

4 stars.
