“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.”

 
MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. 

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years. 

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh—a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds. 

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves. 
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card? 

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

BONUS: This edition contains a deleted scene from Shadowfever and an excerpt from Karen Marie Moning's Iced.

Super fun!

Honestly, I thought I wouldn't enjoy the first one, but here I am reviewing the last in the series after devouring the rest.

Bloated series with an unsatisfying end

This is the final of a five book series that tells one story. Each book ends with a cliff hanger, mid-scene, encouraging the reader to continue on. This book cannot stand alone, yet is bloated with extended summaries from the previous installment. This should have been a three book series, but the author drags it out across five.

(SPOILERS) In the climactic final book, in the middle of the apocalypse, the hero and heroine hide out to have sex for an entire week. So much for worrying about the fact that the world's population has been decimated and continues to decline. As soon as the main characters finally have consensual sex, the hero completely changes to a love-professing idiot whose values have uncharacteristically shifted. Fortunately, this comes so late in the story that the reader doesn't have to suffer too long. The final battle doesn't resolve the larger issue that the world is going to hell, and the prior revelation of the beginning plot (who killed her sister) is eclipsed since revenge seems no longer to be a motivation.

I can't help but feel that if the writer hadn't tried to drag out the story, she would have stayed more true to her original course and given a more satisfying conclusion. Still worth a read, but only just.

Shadowfever (et al)

This is a fabulous series. Full of passion and danger, fear and fantasy. I’ve just returned to the first 5 after several years and blew through a rare weekend off, powering through every juicy one of them!
