SPOILER FREE - HAPPY DAAAAAAAAAAANCE!!!!
Well, frak me, spank my petunia and call me Susie!! If your Jericho Barrons, that is. He could call me Susie, Fiona, Mac (Miss Lane if your nasty). Whatever the hell he wants to call me.
Gawd, if you thought Barrons was naughtee with double e's in the other books, I'm here to tell you that he is naughteeeeeee with infinite e's in this one!! Seriously, some of the other girls have already agreed with me that we need to find this man and spank him. So, who's with me SO SAY WE ALL! Sorry, I know I keep throwing Battlestar Galactica references in her but I only because I love these books so much! They are EPIC. Epic like Battlestar.
Oh by the way, Barrons, who's your favorite little rascal
Is it................ Spanky
One of my favorite scenes between Barrons and Mac:
He shakes me. "Say my name."
"Damn it, would you just cooperate."
"I do not know that word, 'cooperate.' "
"Obviously," he growls.
"I think you make up words."
"I do not make up words."
"Woman, you make me crazed," he mutters.
A perfect summary of their relationship. Simple, yet intensely complicated.
Okay so I'm not usually a strictly romance or erotic book reader. I like some tenderness to my meatballs. I do NOT like them overdone. This is faaaaar from overdone. There was tons of set-up and build-up before anything close to an explicit scene happens and even THEN, it is still under certain unnamed extenuating circumstances. And the tension and passion is honestly the most intense thing I have yet to read. If you are at all uncomfortable reading about sexual situations, then this is not for you. Not at all. Maybe the first three, but then, by the time you get to this one -- you may be changing your tune.
This woman really knows how to throw spikes at you at exactly the right moment, making you unable to dodge them. She loves her cliffhangers, and I am hanging on every word.
Up until chapter three, I was a little ticked. I did not like the alternate perspective that we were getting. The thoughts were fragmented and childish. I like her as a character but not as a perspective character.
After that, geez, I was going crazy. Barrons is so effing hot. When she describes the sound he makes.... Whew! Anyway..... I think a visual aid is in order.
Hummina, hummina. Humminaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
I'm sorry but I had to post this guy, too. He has the long hair. And look at those eyes.
I didn't like it at all when Barrons wasn't around for so long, and that was more often then I had expected. But this whole series moves ridiculously fast, so it doesn't phase me as much as I always think it will. It's the anticipation that keeps me going.
And the ending: WHAT THE EFFING HELL GRUMBLE, GRUMBLE.
A recurring thought seems to be: "How can this possibly get ANY better!" and then it does.
Another recurring thought: "How can this possibly get ANY worse" and then it does.
I had to start Shadowfever before I wrote this review, because I had to at least know if it was who I thought it was. And that better not be permanent or I will hate KMM forever!
I'm not happy about the ending but I'm happy about the book, and the series, and generally about my love for Barrons!
Well, back to my happy dance. And if you want to be happy too then READ THIS SERIES!!!
I'm doing the happy dance but I'm not happy about it.
Yeah, okay. So this is more of a scared and reserved happy dance but it sums up how I felt at the end.....

And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest – and most erotically charged – adventure of her life.
He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought – and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth – about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons…and about the world she thought she knew.
