It’s easy to walk away from lies. Power is another thing.
When the wall that protected humans from the seductive, insatiable Fae was destroyed on Halloween, long-imprisoned immortals ravaged the planet. Now Dublin is a war zone with factions battling for control. As the city heats up and the ice left by the Hoar Frost King melts, tempers flare, passions run red-hot, and dangerous lines get crossed.
Seelie and Unseelie vie for power against nine ancient immortals who have governed Dublin for millennia; a rival band of sidhe-seers invades the city, determined to claim it for their own; Mac’s former protégé and best friend, Dani “Mega” O’Malley, is now her fierce enemy; and even more urgent, Highland druid Christian MacKeltar has been captured by the Crimson Hag and is being driven deeper into Unseelie madness with each passing day. The only one Mac can depend on is the powerful, dangerous immortal Jericho Barrons, but even their fiery bond is tested by betrayal.
It’s a world where staying alive is a constant struggle, the line between good and evil gets blurred, and every alliance comes at a price. In an epic battle against dark forces, Mac must decide who she can trust, and what her survival is ultimately worth.
Burned by Karen Marie Moning
This has been a long time coming. We got a little bit of the entire gang in ICED but this truly is everyone all in...including the Highlanders...yes, you heard me the MacKelters are here.
Intense from the first sentence to the last, Karen Marie Moning pulls out all the stops. We are given an incredible plot with twists and turns and quite a few "oh, heck I didn't see that coming."
There were some murmurs about Dani's age in Iced, worry not Moning brings us a totally shocking resolution, accelerating Ryodan's timetable...but is there competition with wings?
There is a tenuous truce between the Seelie, Unseelie, Barron's and crew while Mac seems to be having an identity crisis between herself and the Sinsar Dubh...in which the Unseelie King gives Mac some incredible advice...can't wait to see how this all pans out.
There is some serious hope for Christian's situation as well.
So many things that pop into my head to share, but honestly, I just don't want to give anything away. You must experience it for yourself. Moning masterfully pulls each string revealing something unexpected and spectacular underneath.
I loved this book. A book like this one is one of the reason I love reading so much. They can carry us to a different world or place, give us a power or ability beyond our imagination, put us up against incredible odds but still give us hope that there is a HEA at the end of this all.
I closed Burned with a expletive and then a sigh, went right to my ereader and brought to the forefront every book I owned by Karen Marie Moning (which is the entire Highlander and Fever series) and happily planned to do another re-read of the entire series.
Please don't make us wait another 2 years...
