This is going to be a pretty short and sweet review. I read this month's ago and at the time I was dealing with a family bereavement and didn't write up any notes. I just really needed to escape reality for a while and DARKFEVER definitely allowed me to do that.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to start this series. Maybe it's because I don't usually read fae novels. I'm not sure why but they don't capture my imagination or interest. But Laura loves this series and has continued to recommend it. But after delving into the world of Mac and Barrons, I'm very glad I did. There's great atmosphere and superb world building. I loved the idea that a part of Dublin is unknown, that people don't know it exists.

MacKayla Lane and Jericho Barrons are great characters and I loved their banter. Barrons is mysterious and sexy and I just can't wait to read more about him and how their relationship develops. I enjoyed Mac's realisation of the Other World. From a normal American girl interested in fashion and lipgloss to somebody who is being chased by shadows and demons and surrounded by strangeness.

The plot is great and sucked me in. I loved the fight scenes and Barrons coming to Mac's rescue, even though she was actually doing ok! I think Mac is going to be one serious kickass chick and I can't wait to see her develop and come into her own.

The only aspect I didn't like was that the book was being narrated by Mac in the present tense but it's all written in the past tense if that makes sense. So it's not as if we are living it with her it's actually her account of what has already happened. I hope that time catches up and the next book she's either in the present tense or at least in the past tense but with us right alongside her.

VERDICT:

A really great start to the series and I'm looking forward to getting to know Mac and Barrons better.
