Find out how you can participate Here!

“You want to believe in black and white, good and evil, heroes that are truly heroic, villains that are just plain bad, but I've learned in the past year that things are rarely so simple. The good guys can do some truly awful things, and the bad guys can sometimes surprise the heck out of you.”

Title: Darkfever
Series:  Fever #1 
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Urban Fantasy/Paranormal

Hardcover, 309 pages
Published October 31st 2006 by Delacorte Press

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….

My Thoughts
This is another of my favorite series.  I am getting ready to do a re-read...listen actually.  I have the whole series on my iPod ready to go. 

If you haven't read it yet, it comes highly recommended.


  1. Good quote!

    Mine this week is a drama about a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder (and there may be a bit of romance in there too...)


    1. Sounds interesting! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Life would be simpler if everything were black and white, wouldn't it? I like your Teaser, and this sounds like a good story.
    My Tuesday post features THE MOST UNSUITABLE WIFE.

    1. It would be, unfortunately it doesn't always happen that way :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. My friend has been bugging me to read this series for a while, and I think I might have to give it a go now! This sounded really good, thanks for sharing! My Teaser.

    1. I've already read the whole series through once and am contemplating a re-read :) It comes recommended! Thanks for stopping by!
