Summary

MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death - a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone - Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers.
The quest to find her sister's killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed - a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae.
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister's death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane - an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women - closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac's true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book - because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds.

Good book but where is the rest of the series?

As with a lot of paranormal romance audiobooks Audible UK only seem to have one or two books from a whole series. More Karen Marie Moning Fever books and Highlander series please!

A great bit of fun

I really enjoyed this book, it's a great bit if fun. I hope the follow up books in this series Blood Fever and Faefeve soon join it on the book shelf. I for one would certainly buy them.

Stick with it!

The narrator is completely wrong for this character and unfortunately she sticks around for the first 3 books. Mac, the lead character, is annoying in the beginning but really transforms into someone much more interesting. The real disappointment in this narrators representation of the story is Barrons, which she makes sound like an 80 year old man. Any chemistry that happens between Mac and Barrons comes across a little creepy, instead of hot. That being said, stick with the story. Read the first 3 if you can't handle this narrator but be sure to listen to Dreamfever and Shadowfever. You will be blown away by the 2 narrators and the way they interpret the story.

Who picked the cover for this book?

STORY - Darkfever is an interesting mystery with a supernatural twist. I enjoyed it very much, but the cover is completely misleading. It is NOT a romance and there is basically zero sex. The story is an "easy listen" but with a much better plot than most books I put in that category. It doesn't really come to a conclusion but sets the background for what should be a really good series.

Some reviewers have commented that Mac is a shallow heroine and is overly concerned about her outfits and appearance, but I disagree. She does have a girly aspect to her personality, but it's just character development and I don't think it detracted from the story at all.

NARRATOR - The narrator does a pretty good job but nothing awesome. She performs male voices, Irish and Southern accents convincingly enough.

OVERALL - You will enjoy this book if you are looking for a fairly light supernatural mystery, but you will have to continue hearing the series for a conclusion.
