For a more detailed synopsis please click here.First Thoughts after finishing: "No, I want more of Mac and Barron's story. Please don't let this end!"
I was browsing at the library a few weeks ago, noticed this book and realized that it was time to read it. I have been putting it off because I didn't want the story to end. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to this fantastic fae world that Moning created and these incredible characters that graced Dublin's streets. This was an epic book both in content and page length. I wondered how long it would take me to read. I shouldn't have worried one bit because as soon as I cracked the spine and settled in, the pages flew like lightning. I read this book in two days and couldn't wait to get back to it whenever I had to set it down. For me this is the what Urban Fantasy is all about- one big kick ass book after another. Few writers can take their readers to such great heights each and every book and continue to deliver each and every time. Moning has crafted a high caliber book which never lets the reader down. I loved all of the twists to the story, the surprises that I never saw coming and most of all the development of her characters. I happily lost myself in this world and didn't want to surface for air.
Recommend? Most definitely...but please make sure that you read this series in order. You will miss out on clues and the building of the story and people if you don't start at the beginning!
Please continue with this series. I can't stand the thought that I will never get to walk the streets of Dublin with Mac ever again. I need my dose of that crazy, sexy Jericho and I still think you have more to tell us!!!!!!!!!
