I can really see why this series is so popular. MacKayla is the type of character that just about anyone can relate to, and I love her attitude with all the crazy crap going on around her. A couple mysteries are solved in this one, but a million more are presented.
I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets...
In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.
For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.
Baron's is just as mysterious as ever, if not more so, and I'm still wondering what his real motives are. V'lane seems to be playing nice, or at least trying to, but you can never really tell with the fae. But he definitely adds an important element to the story. Not quite danger, but it could turn that way very quickly.
There's some grossness, some sweetness, some breakdowns, and some enlightening moments. Such a fun story to just fall into. MacKayla's constant changing perspective continues to be more and more interesting.
