You can never trust your eyes. Unless, if you are a powerful Siddhe-seer. Then, baby, you are in for a ride, and what you see is the truth that nobody else can see…
“My name is MacKayla, Mac for short. I’m a sidhe-seer, one who sees the Fae, a fact I accepted only recently and very reluctantly.
My philosophy is pretty simple – any day nobody’s trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven’t had many good days lately. Not since the walls between Man and Fae came down. But then, there’s not a sidhe-seer alive who’s had a good day since then.”
When MacKayla’s sister was murdered, she left a single clue to her death, a cryptic message on Mac’s cel phone. Journeying to Ireland in search of answers, Mac is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to master 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, mysteriou Jericho…while at the same time, the ruthless V’lane – an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women – closes in on her. As the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: to 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 both worlds in their hands.
I met with this series earlier, but never once opened it to read. Now I felt it is time to get to know Mac and the so-called Jericho Barrons.
And I am glad I did.
You see, the story was absolutely fantastic. The characters – I loved them, especially Jericho. Even if he was a little bit of an asshole at the start. And through. And in the end still. I came to understand this is his sex appeal. Being a bastard.
But he is a good bastard. And I felt sorry for Mac. Being thrust into a world like this is never easy. You have to deal with it somehow. Even if you are a perky rainbow. At first, I thought she is some snobby bitch, but she turned out pretty good. And I think she will be a real badass later on. The mystery was intriguing, the events had me breathless so I could not even put the book down.
I cannot wait to read the next book.
“The only other calling I ever felt was an irrepressible desire to be Captain of my own Starship. I was born in the wrong century and it wasn’t possible, so I chose to explore the universe by writing fiction instead. Books are doors to endless adventure.” -KMM
