He calls me his Queen of the Night. I'd die for him. I'd kill for him, too. When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister's journal, she is stunned by Alina's desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister's killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe seer is on the hunt... For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Mac's quest for the Sinsar Dubhtakes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V'lane—an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes; and Jericho Barrons—a man of primal desires and untold secrets—Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

As All Hallows' Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds - with devastating consequences.

My rating:

Verdict after 3rd book: Now we're talking!

The first half was pretty meh and filler-like, but the second half...Oh, boy. Dark, gritty, dangerous...The scenes of the Dark Zone the darkened Dublin has become flashed vividly in front of my eyes. Creepy, chilling, masterfully done.

And the last scene...Sheesh. Simple and subtle, yet horrific and blood-chilling because of that subtleness. Presented with a masterfully mellow touch, a very dream-like experience for both Mac and the reader, yet packing a whopper of a punch.

I know I shouldn't but I can't help it...
