Review: Bloodfever (Fever #2) by Karen Marie Moning

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who'd get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.

When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I've learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it....

MacKayla Lane's ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland's shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh-a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V'lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them....
My Thoughts: I hardly know where to start with this book.  Wait.  I loved it.  I'm going to start there.  I loved so much about it.  I loved how we're given little snippets of information and we have to piece things together, much the way Mac has to.  I love that Barrons is so darn mysterious.  I have some ideas about him, you know.  Are my ideas anywhere near correct?  Well, I have no clue.  I just know that V'lane may be the death-by-sex fae but Barrons is the one that makes me sit up and grin.

I was going to list off some things I liked but then I realized I'd be listing the entire book.  I honestly can't think of anything that didn't grab me.  The Unseelie, Malluce, Barrons' foresight in marking Mac, the females-only Sidhe-seer club, V'lane's promise to try to be better around Mac, blood, death, family.  All of it was fabulous!

I'm terribly afraid that I'm going to get to the end of book 4 and be climbing the walls to read the conclusion.  I fear that moments, guys.  Fear it.

In the meantime, I have another 2 books to go.  And I'm thrilled by that.
