Drawing on elements from the paranormal world that bestseller Moning (Spell of the Highlander) created in her earlier romances, this suspense novel takes readers on a darker journey, one dominated by the search for a powerful Faery magic and bereft of the romantic magic Moning's fans have come to expect. When MacKayla Lane, an ordinary young woman, travels to Ireland to track down her sister's murderer, she is sucked into an extraordinary world filled with ancient secrets, vampires, assorted Fae nasties and other tough-to-kill beings. In the process, Mac learns of her own unusual talents and finds an unlikely mentor in the wealthy and mysterious Jericho Barrons. Moning's newest foray contains suspense and plenty of setup. Indeed, this reads like a fragment of a larger story, an introduction to character and place that, while entertaining, skims the surface. But it's a compelling world filled with mystery and vivid characters, and this, combined with the hint of sparks between Jericho and Mac, will stoke readers' fervor for Bloodfever, the next installment. (Nov.)

MacKayla "Mac" Lane is a small-town southern girl living a life of suntans and shopping. All that changes when her sister dies in Ireland and a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone raises disturbing questions about the nature of her sister's death. Mac follows the lead to Dublin and the strange life her sister led, on to the darkly dangerous book-dealer Jericho Barrons, and a burgeoning war with deadly Fae that humankind doesn't even realize has begun. Time-travel-romance maven Moning reshapes her Celtic lore for a radically different and engaging new dark fantasy series. Mac's first-person narrative is more than point of view; it's a true recounting of how a sheltered young girl grows to accept the role fate has dealt her. And while moments of sexual awareness hint that a relationship between Mac and Jericho could complicate matters in the future, wisely there is no full-blown romance here to distract from the complex introduction to Moning's new world.

MacKayla is a reluctant heroine and her development is slow, but that is to be expected. Not only does she have to come to terms with her sister’s death, which occurred in a completely different country from her own, but she also has to deal with the fact that she has powers that allow her to see a world that very few knew existed.
Jericho Barrons is complex and intoxicating, mentoring MacKayla one minute, then using her the next. I appreciate the air of mystery surrounding his character, and admit it is the main reason I will be reading on. A dark and powerful start to a series I look forward to completing.
I loved reading about him through Mac's eyes. She is a lot of fun and she comes a long way. I loved taking the journey with her.
At first MacKayla wasn't my favorite heroine. She never turned into someone I would seek out as a friend, but she did grow on me. She started out as superficial and naive, but her love and devotion to her sister and determination to fight whatever got in her way to seek her sister's killer was what kept me from disliking her totally. By the end of the book she had actually gained some of my respect.
I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about Jericho. I think I trusted him more than MacKayla did, but just marginally. He was mysterious and definitely not quite normal. What he is was left a mystery, but I'm hoping that that is revealed later in the series.
Then there was V'lane. The scenes with him an Mac were priceless - for a lot of reasons. Where he fits into all of this is even more a mystery than Jericho.
Basically, this was a perfect set up for the beginning of the series. The scenario has been set, the players have been introduced and the readers have been left wanting more. I can't wait to get my hands on Bloodfever to see what happens next.
