I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous. For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them
Moning has officially stolen my heart. Her writing is beautiful, poetic, and addicting. The characters she creates are realistic and suck the reader right in. She's funny and entertaining and keeps the reader's wanting more. In short: She's pretty awesome.
This is only the third book I've read from her, but already I'm in love. This book picks up where the first one left off as Mac and Barrons continue their search for Alina's killer but also for the mysterious and deadly book that is extremely corrupt. New characters are thrown into the mix and the story really begins to develop with new revelations that made me rethink a lot of things.
More and more dangerous Fae are released into our world and Mac is an even more danger than what she anticipated. I'm really starting to like Mac; she's funny and smart, and she's really starting to realize just how important her role is in this madness.
Barrons is this big mystery that will keep haunting the reader's from the first book to this one, and possibly to the end of the series unless the author gives us a little hint on him. There was a major development between the two, but I feel like we'll just have to wait and see!
I'm not sure what to say about this book, because it was just great. The author did not disappoint and I'm hoping to see more and more of this awesomeness to come.
