After MacKayla Lane is told that her sister has been murdered she finds herself on a flight to Dublin in search of a killer. It’s not long before Mac realizes that things aren’t always what they seem, herself included. Drawn into a world where shadows can kill and the beautiful people aren’t really beautiful or human at all, Mac teams up with Jericho Barrons to pursue the Sinsar Dubh, a book that holds deadly magic within its pages. There are other Fae relics to be hunted, some of which enable the Sinsar Dubh to be deciphered and in the wrong hands could mean the end of the world as they know it. That’s something they can’t allow to happen.

Jericho Barrons is a wealthy man with his own reasons to search for the Sinsar Dubh. For the most part he keeps those reasons to himself, but his reason for helping Mac is a clear one. As a Sidhe-seer, Mac can see through the glamour used by Sidhe as well as detect when one of them, or their relics, are nearby. A handy talent for a man like Barrons to have at his disposal, and luckily for Mac it means someone watching her back.

Darkfever takes readers on a journey into the magical and often dark world of the Fae. Mac is determined to make someone pay for her sister’s death and Jericho Barrons is just the man to help her. With the first book in the Fever series, Ms. Moning builds a strong paranormal world where desires can be influenced, shadows are often deadly, beauty is an illusion and reality for some is a nightmare. A first rate thrill ride into the mysterious Dark Zones, a place where death and destruction reign.
