Shadowfever (Fever #5)
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.
You know the phrase "this book has many twists and turns" well that definitely applies to Shadowfever but on a whole new level! Just when you think you have a handle on a situation, there is something waiting in the shadows to throw everything you thought you knew out the window. Going into this book there are so many things we still need to know. And K.M.M weaves almost everything together so perfectly and nothing seems rushed. It makes me want to go back and reread all these books with knowing everything I do now.
I can't not say how many things in here shocked me. Mac finally got so many of her answers and hardly any of them were what she thought. Her sisters killer totally threw me. Never ever would I have seen that coming.
There are so many things I would love to share about Shadowfever but I can't. I don't want to ruin the ride for anyone. This series has been one of the toughest for me. I was not totally in love with them for a long time. I can now look back at the books I thought I didn't love and think WOW, I was being stubborn. So thanks to all of you that kept me reading them,Amber R, Jen @ Red Hot Books, Mariya @ Mystifying Paranormal Reviews and the lady who gave me the gift of the series (She bought me all 5, she is so freaking awesome) Lori @ Romancing the Darkside!
