Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

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….

Okay, so first of all i have to thank Goodreads...or rather the people there, who pushed me and pushed me into buying and reading this book. It was my first adult book ever. That been said, knowing they won't beat me up for not giving them credit, let's get to the book. I know I have been saying how i have been missing a good book, but I read two good books in a row. The Dead-Tossed Waves and Darkfever. And both being opposites, I loved them both. But I'm gonna focus on Darkfever. I have read a ton of Fae books and none of them were even as good as this one. Not even close. This book was so original, all of it, the plot, the characters. I have never been to Ireland so I have to say the author did  a hell of a job in the descriptions. I could feel as if I was actually there. She had obviously some knowledge of the setting as well as the topic. The fae topic was extremely well developed, narrated and explained. Cause at first it was hard to understand some of the fae-related words, but she explains it pretty well. The narration was something I really had been missing. This book had me laughing every two pages. The narrator manages to be humorous without ruining the books dark mood. And last, but believe me, not least, Barrons. Oh...Barrons. You can't help but love that character. Yeah, readers (and the main character of the story) always fall for the jerks, but Barrons is the king of them all, we all want to be with him, even as cold as he is. In conclusion, I recommend this book for everyone looking for an amazing read.
