No silly…not that kind of fever…this is the good kind….and it all started with Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning.
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post about one of my favorite book series. That’s right I’m talking about the Fever books by Karen Marie Moning. So, I’ve decided to revisit them. I’ll be doing a series of Fever posts over the next few weeks…cuz in all honesty…there’s no such thing as too much Fever.
I did a review of the series as a whole back in July. Now I want to delve a little bit deeper into each of the books on their own. I didn’t find these books by myself. Nope, I gotta give credit for my addiction to ’em where it belongs. JAG was the Fever dealer for me, and it’s been almost a year since I first read this literary crack.
The 1st book in the series is Darkfever. Here’s the publishers blurb…
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….
