Synopsis

“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.”

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh—a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.


Review

It broke my heart when Mac revealed that she had killed Barrons. I was so mad that Ryodan put it into her head to do it. I almost stopped reading right there. The love hate relationship between Mac and Barrons is the main reason I love this series so much. I have been hoping  that they would have a Happily Ever After since the day they met. There was just something about him that I liked. He has a very hard shell but if you can make it to the center you will always be there. 
Mack kept saying she felt bipolar, that's exactly how I felt. Every time I thought I had everything figured out, it would change. I don't want to give away to many details for those of that haven't read the book yet, so just know if you like the previous Fever books you will not be disappointed.
I was so happy When Barrons called Mac out and told her he was tired of waiting. Shoot, I was tired of waiting.
This was such an amazing journey. Seeing Mac 1.0 grow into Mac 5.0, we wouldn't have it any other way. It made me sad that this was the end, but in its own way it was perfect. Hopefully we will see more of the characters in the books to come. Thank you so much, KMM, for taking us on this journey with you. I hope there are many more to come!

  1. I started the series because book one was offered for free. I was sucked in immediately. For once I felt the final to a series wrapped up the main issues in the book. Is it a tight little bow, no, but I think it would be congruent with a real life situation. It lets you know that not everyone is all knowing nor are things as they seem. Was I surprised at some things, yes. Did I already have some issues figured out. Most definitely. Did she throw a few wrenches into the situation, Yes. I enjoyed my journey with Mac and Barrons. I am glad KMM wrote the series and I am glad I took the chance to read it especially when I dislike first person style as well as a single person series. Thanks for building this world and I thank my elaborate imagination for expanding it.
