From Publishers Weekly
Drawing on elements from the paranormal world that bestseller Moning (Spell of the Highlander) created in her earlier romances, this suspense novel takes readers on a darker journey, one dominated by the search for a powerful Faery magic and bereft of the romantic magic Moning's fans have come to expect. When MacKayla Lane, an ordinary young woman, travels to Ireland to track down her sister's murderer, she is sucked into an extraordinary world filled with ancient secrets, vampires, assorted Fae nasties and other tough-to-kill beings. In the process, Mac learns of her own unusual talents and finds an unlikely mentor in the wealthy and mysterious Jericho Barrons. Moning's newest foray contains suspense and plenty of setup. Indeed, this reads like a fragment of a larger story, an introduction to character and place that, while entertaining, skims the surface. But it's a compelling world filled with mystery and vivid characters, and this, combined with the hint of sparks between Jericho and Mac, will stoke readers' fervor for Bloodfever, the next installment. (Nov.)

MacKayla "Mac" Lane is a small-town southern girl living a life of suntans and shopping. All that changes when her sister dies in Ireland and a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone raises disturbing questions about the nature of her sister's death. Mac follows the lead to Dublin and the strange life her sister led, on to the darkly dangerous book-dealer Jericho Barrons, and a burgeoning war with deadly Fae that humankind doesn't even realize has begun. Time-travel-romance maven Moning reshapes her Celtic lore for a radically different and engaging new dark fantasy series. Mac's first-person narrative is more than point of view; it's a true recounting of how a sheltered young girl grows to accept the role fate has dealt her. And while moments of sexual awareness hint that a relationship between Mac and Jericho could complicate matters in the future, wisely there is no full-blown romance here to distract from the complex introduction to Moning's new world.

Mac, our heroine, is a young, naive (and even a little bit vain) American woman in Ireland looking into the mysterious death of her elder sister.
Written in the first person, Mac tells us how she suddenly sees the dark side of this beautiful country and has an unpleasant introduction to the Faerie world. Our hero is every bit as attractive, dark and dangerous all true Heroes are but he too has secrets (not revealed in this installment!) and a dark side of his own.
The two protagonists are not even on first name basis in this novel and Darkfever is only the first in what is rumoured to be a 7 novel offering by Ms. Moning. (Bloodfever is next in October 2007) However, as a teaser, Darkfever lays the ground work that certainly had me hooked.
If you are looking for hot love scenes or romance, this novel is not for you in the traditional sense of 'happy endings'. Although, there is certainly 'sexual content' it is not bewteen the two main characters.
The only down sides of this fabulous work is that Ms. Moning relies quite heavily on foreshadowing and frankly, the constant doom and gloom predictions are a bit trying.
If you are looking for an exciting relationship and excitement at every turn, pick this up...but beware...waiting for the next installment is almost....murder! (PS...this book was so good my husband even liked it..)
This story hooked me immediately, and I would strongly recommend it to people who love a good story.
I loved the feeling that the main character is telling us her story. It drew me further into the tale while also allowing me to get to know Mac better. The NA quickly growing up feeling was prevalent throughout. Moning also lets her characters’ true personalities shine through. They aren’t always proper, likeable individuals. They’re snarky when they feel like it, helpful when it works for them, and downright loveable throughout. Jericho Barrons is a perplexing mystery and a real treat in this novel. Who and what is he really? It’s one of those mysteries that I can’t wait to delve deeper into through the series.
Moning left me reeling and dying for more at the end of the novel. This is definitely a series that I’ll be delving much deeper into.
Haunted and desperate to find out what happened to her sister she cashes everything, argues with her parents and travels to Ireland to throw evidence in the police's face.
But they don't care.
And, in fact, on her first night in Dublin she pisses off an elderly woman with her inability to control what she sees. And that woman kicks her out seemingly not to care.
But they do care - they just can't speak freely. Because there is a war.
Mac's good at pissing people off and strikes an unlikely alliance with an individual named Jericho who seeks the Sinsar Dubh.
She discovers what she is and who her Celtic heritage is in a war that the Fae have among themselves and with humankind. Her experience with Jericho and fighting off a vampire starts book one in the series. The battle has been fought. The players are known to each other. The war over this Sinsar Dubh magical book begins.

Darkfever is labeled as paranormal-romance; and, although we see some glimpse of promising, aspiring romance, there isn't any actually romance in this book. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Elena
