MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the erotic Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master’s spell.…In New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest—and most erotically charged—adventure of her life.
He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought—and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.
As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister’s diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge.…
It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth—about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons…and about the world she thought she knew.

Hallelujah. This is the book we’ve been waiting for. Remember that cliffhanger? Totally worth it. I shall not spoil it for you.
The walls have fallen and the fae and shades are reeking some serious havoc. Both Mac and Barrons will experience some changes. Mac trades her soft edges and pink in for black leather. She really becomes a force. We also get a few glimpses into Barrons’ head. He is still quite a mystery, but you’ll begin to understand what torments him. You’ll also get some idea of why V’lane is so scared of Barrons and rightfully hates him. And Dani really comes into her own and becomes a major supporting character in this book.
It’s a good thing Mac is tapping into her beastly side, because she has a lot of people gunning for her. The Lord Master has her in his sites and he doesn’t mind using the people she loves to bend her will. There is constant action and not much time to breathe.
Besides the awesome that is the beginning of the book, the real gem is in Mac remembering some of the lessons her dad taught her. She draws on her upbringing to be brave, to help Dani and to push down her pride and fear and explore her true feelings for Barrons. And in Fever Fashion, you are thrown off the cliff again at the end of the book. Shadowfever here I come.
Hot and Sexy. Mac explores her dark side and Barrons gives us a glimpse of his heart.
