With the unsolved murder of her sister fueling her intentions, Mac flew to Dublin, Ireland to do some investigating of her own. Finding that she has the gift of being a sidhe-seer came as a surprise when Mac realized that the creatures she was seeing on the streets were not seen by the people around her. Then she met Jericho Barrons, a man who’s more than human but doesn’t appear to be one of the Fae, and her life became more dangerous. Barrons is seeking the Sinsar Dubh, one of the dark Hallow said to contain the deadliest of all magic. Mac’s talents enable her to sense not only the Fae, but their relics as well. A very handy talent for Barrons to keep around, and a good reason for him to ensure she stays alive.

As Mac continues to seek revenge on the Lord Master for her sister’s death, more of the Fae and their associates want a piece of her. V’lane, a Prince of the Seelie Court, is still searching for the right enticement to convince Mac to help him with his own search. Derek O’Bannion, is sure that Mac killed his brother Rocky and is now a double threat having become the Lord Master’s new right hand. Death seems to be stalking her each night, standing within his billowing robes and threatening her with a dark future of despair. Mac’s not a quitter and she’s prepared to fight against anything they throw her way. She won’t stop until she’s seen the Lord Master pay, or she’ll die trying.

Bloodfever is the second book in the Fever series. Mac is a passionate young woman, bound by her personal vows to see her sister’s death avenged and she has two men offering to protect her. Choosing the wrong man to trust could mean her life. With the magical influence of the Fae lending a strong layer of fantasy to her tale, Ms. Moning pens an action-filled adventure for her characters. Moving on at a slow, but even pace, the potentially explosive chemistry continues to build. A thrilling continuation of the Fever series that clearly leaves the story open for much more to come.

I picked up the first one but haven't had time to start it yet. I am looking forward to getting into the series though, it sounds good.

Once I read the first book I really, really wanted to know what came next. There's lots of questions by the end of Darkfever and even more by the end of Bloodfever. The great thing for you is that you can go right on to read the second book and not have to wait. :)
