Personally, I'm a romance fan. When I learned this was not a romance novel, I put off reading it for months. I'm glad I finally did. I really enjoyed this book. Mac has traveled to Dublin to try and solve the murder of her sister. Once she is there, she learns a great deal about her sister and herself. She also learns that a war is coming between man and the Fae and that she is powerful weapon within that war.
Well written and it took some adjustement to reading the entire story in first person, but it felt more comfortable the farther I got into the book. Not a cut and dried story like the Highland stories, but rather the first part of a story journaled by Mac and how she got caught up in this crazy Tuatha de' Danaan that she didn't even know existed. Contains a few sexually explicit scenes with V'lane, though no sex actaully takes place.
Moning at her contemporary best... Do you believe in monsters, fairies, and objects of unfathomable power? Would you be willing to brave the depths of depravity and evil only written about in ancient texts to avenge the murder of your beloved older sister? Would you be able to walk away and "forget" the world you had unwittingly stumbled into when it became evident that your fate could become identical to your murdered and mutilated sister? What is real and who is truly "evil" and to be feared? Can anyone be trusted? MacKayla goes to Dublin, Ireland, for some answers about her sister's murder and finds a world she never knew existed...
Not a typical romance. But definately leading to one. Great story if you love Fae and details.
The worst thing about a series is the WAIT! This was a good beginning,can't wait to read the follow through!
