Book Review: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Author: Karen Marie Moning
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Pages: 309
Series/stand alone: Series-Book 1 in the fever series
Outline:
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….

Thoughts:
Wow, I mean that's all I can say about the first book in this series. Okay, I know that doesn't really work well for a review so I'll try to elaborate. I will start off by saying I may have just let this series slip by had it not been for a co-workers wife that said I should read it. Normally I don't listen to recommendations. I'm one of those people who likes to go off of my own judgement and not others, but I figured since she enjoyed the VA series maybe, I could trust her judgement.

 I'm so...so...so glad I did, and the weird thing about almost letting it go was I have books 2, 3 and the last one. Anyways, back to the raving, even though this series is (to me) more towards the adult genere and not what I typically read in the way of YA it still had aspects that lingered toward YA for me.

YAish: Mackayla, or Mac as she goes by is in her early twenties. (She's not some wife having a midlife crisis and lost her job and husband. Do you get where I'm going with that?) She's not some lovestruck, help me, teenager. She's very strong and independent. I mean who would give up and travel over the oceans to a foreign country to find a killer? Then when things go from bad to worse for her she doesn't give up, she doesn't give in to what the people around her are telling her to do she stays and fights through it. We need strong heroines to look up to and I truly believe Mac is one of them.

Adultish: Why I would classify it as adult is for some of the more x-rated scenes. It's not like it went into total details, but it was close enough.

Let's talk about Barrons. What is his deal? Seriously, he is like a girl on PMS. As much I hated him I really enjoyed him. He really didn't give to much away so now he has me wondering what the heck he is.

I'm definitely ready to read the next few books.
