Spoilers: Some, it’s an older book so I’m not overly worried about it

Synopsis: 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.

I know I’m alone on this butttt… I don’t like this series. I don’t hate it. But both books I’ve read so far are kind of a drag to get through. Honestly, I don’t even really feel the need to overly critique this book but everyone on goodreads was gushing about it so I needed to say it… this series isn’t that good and I don’t get the hype.

The main character Mac, is definitely a kick-ass chick who manages to merge her old girly self and new living dangerously self pretty well. But I still don’t like her. I wouldn’t want to go have a drink with this girl, I don’t feel like I could really count on her to have my back in a fight to the death and she doesn’t really have anything interesting to say.

Her love interest (and it’s a stretch to call him that despite that this series lives in the romance section) is broody and miserable. Sure, he sounds good looking but not endearingly so. He never tells Mac anything or even says anything nice to her. There rarely even seems to be any chemistry between the two of them.

With maybe three chapters to go in this book I was pretty convinced that I would not be picking up book three (which is saying something since I already own books three and four), but I may have been swayed a little near the very end. I’m curious where this is going and I want to be able to say I’ve read what has become a major series in the paranormal romance genre. So I don’t know… we’ll see. Maybe it’s just that this series is really dark with a limited amount of characters, but it’s just not too my taste.
