Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Bloodfever / Karen Marie Moning

Bloodfever - Karen Marie Moning

MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh–a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

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.…

So I liked book two quite a bit more than book one—enough to raise my star rating to 3 from 2.5.

MacKayla isn’t quite so fixated on her appearance in the second book, and she is starting to wise-up, something for which I am thankful. I am completely in agreement with her that she has lots of potential friends & enemies, that its hard to tell them apart, but she might as well stick with the ones who are actually helping her. There seem to be plenty who know things who refuse to help.

So, Mac is actually growing as a human being, which helps me like her better. Plus Moning leaves this book with a dreadful cliffhanger! I’ll be moving on to book 3 just to satisfy my curiosity about who did what.
