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.

I read this book on a recommendation from Evie. She loves this series and is a fever-freak, she especially loves Jericho. So, when she told me you could download the book as a podcast for free, I was all over that! The podcast is on itunes or you can check out the podcast at This book is the beginning to her fever series. While there is a lot of information pumped into the story, it was one that I really enjoyed. I was not distracted with the book written in first person, but sometimes it was too detailed. I have a feeling Ms. Moning wanted it that way. She wants her reader to be really connected to Mac. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Bloodfever. Faefever was just released, with the fourth in the series not coming out until 2009. I am not sure when the last book will be out. I wish that there was more tension between Barrons and Mac, although I understand that KMM couldn't put too much between them in the first book, and (***LITTLE SPOILER***) the fingernail painting was absolutely adorable and I will just have to settle for that and when Barrons saves her butt in the warehouse. DONE SPOILING So, If you want something different and adventurous, I think you'll be pleased with this book!

Awesome book. One of my faves! MacKayla is a Sidhe-seer but she doesn't know it, and when she goes to Ireland to try & find answers about her sisters murder, she comes to meet many different "others" she previously had no idea exsisted & her whole life changes. Not alot of "romance" in this one, which I liked. Much more about the story and mystery. Kept me up all night reading! 5 stars!

Wow! This is a great new series. I can't wait for Bloodfever! Ms Moning has written the best suspense I have read in years. I can usually figure out what is going to happen next, but not this time.

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.

I was skeptical of this series as I started it...but I'm not sure why or how anyone could have any skepticism over such a series because it is PHENOMENAL!!! By far the absolute BEST series I have ever set my eyes on. EVERYONE needs to enjoy this series for themselves!

great book, couldn't put it down! MacKayla is such a riveting character and I always wanted to know what was happening next and who others in the story really were! BloodFever was also excellent, now I'm reading FaeFever:) and looking for the last two books in this series!
