This book—tempted and teased me, tested my patience, drove me crazy—in short, consumed my attention for two days. I love the world Ms. Moning created within the confines of modern urban society, the hidden world that normal people don’t see with hideous and stunningly beautiful Fae creatures walking among us clueless humans. Her story is complex, well written, and executed beautifully.
While Mac is not the heroine I initially envisioned, she grew on me instantly with her constant inner banter. She’s one funny gal! Jericho Barrons is dark, mysterious, not human (I don’t think anyway, I’m not sure what he is), and sexy as hell. I have a selfish reason for not giving DARKFEVER five stars—romance. I’m a romance addict. And while there is sexual tension between Mac and Barrons (achingly so), I wanted more. This isn’t a romance novel and doesn’t even claim to be so I shouldn’t even take that into consideration with my review, but Ms. Moning does such an excellent job of teasing my romantic proclivities with glimpses of what could be, and what may be in the future that she’s guaranteed my continued reading of the series.
If you start this book, I only hope you have nothing else planned for the next two days because you won’t get anything else accomplished.
Focused. Strong. True.
