In the second of Moning’s Mackayla Lane series, Mackayla (Mac) is settling down into her new life in Dublin. She now works for Barron’s bookstore by day, and by night continues her hunt to avenge her sister’s death by tracking down the Fae’s dark Lord Master. She, along with Jericho Barrons, also continue to hunt down the sinister book of black magic, the Sinsar Dubh.
In BLOODFEVER, Moning continues to add to the cast of characters, while also building upon the existing slate. V’lane, the Seelie Prince who makes sex an addiction for women, makes a reappearance and becomes a key player in this book. One of my complaints about DARKFEVER, the previous book, was Mac’s maturity level. I can’t complain any longer; Mac goes through quite the change in character and is no longer the Southern princess she was in the first book. Another improvement was the pacing; DARKFEVER wasn’t slow by any means, but the pace really picks up in BLOODFEVER, the storyline now literally has non-stop action. Moning also reveals some more information about the mysterious Books & Baubles book store and it’s owner, Jericho Barrons.
BLOODFEVER ends in yet another cliff-hanger, leaving me desperate to read more. I actually appreciate that sort of ending, seeing it as the sign of a great writer.
As mentioned above, this is the second book in a series. There is a short summary of the previous book; however I still recommend starting this series from the beginning.
I cannot wait to start reading the third book in this series, Faefever. This series is definitely addictive, one I’m happy I’ve started but will be sad when it ends! Check back next month for my review of Faefever!
