Darkfever [Moning]

Book: Darkfever [Fever #1]
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Review: When her older sister is brutally murdered in Dublin, 22-year old Georgia native MacKayla (Mac) Lane travels to Ireland to solve the crime. Armed with a cryptic voicemail message from her sister just hours before she died, Mac begins searching for an ancient book and meets mysterious bookstore owner, Jericho Barrons. Barrons, recognizing Mac as a sidhe-seer, a human who can see fae, agrees to help her hone her skills while they work together to find the book.

Funny and filled with just enough sexual tension to keep readers on their toes-this is a good read. The pacing is a little slow but as the first book in a series of 5, Moning is laying a lot of groundwork. If you are looking for a new sci-fi series with a hint of romance-this is a good bet.

Book Junkie's Grade: B+
