Review: Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning

Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death—a cryptic message on MacKayla Lane’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed—a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae." target="_blank">

     It took me a little bit to get into it but I'd heard some good things about darkfever. I wanted to also branch out some into the adult books since I think I've been a little burned out with YA lately and this was one that I've seen around on a lot of blogs and it was also in the you might also like whenever I looked up the adult Richelle Mead books that I've read and liked.

     Usually the whole murder mystery thing isn't really my cup of tea but I knew that there was also a paranormal aspect to this so it wasn't just the Whodunnit. it was also a young woman in her twenties who just lost her sister and best friend and wanted to find out what her sister had gotten herself wrapped up in. as mac is asking questions and finding more and more out about the whole paranormal side of the world that she had no idea about she gets more and more drawn into it and figures out just how and what she is with everything that she's learning about.

    The romance got started as a Kind of Love To Hate Thing. I guess there was physical attraction and he was the man who knew something about the strange words her sister left on Voice Mail just hours before her death. as they begin to trade information back and forth and antagonize one another we got to see more of how they clashed in some ways and fit in others. she said you know where she was light, he was dark and they had a lot of characteristics that were opposite but also some that were very much alike. They are both stubborn and strong and determined to find this mysterious book.

    About a third of the way in, I started skimming, because I still wanted to know what happened, but it just didn't keep my full attention. The ending was okay, but I will not be continuing this series.

Bottom Line: Had potential but didn't work for me.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Would you want to know if there was hidden paranormal in our world?
