I'm sure this will be the first of many posts about this series. When Tiffany suggested these books to me I went out and bought the first one thinking "Ok, I'll just get one to see if I might like it"...mistake. If you haven't read this series but plan on it, go ahead and do yourself a favor and buy them all. It's honestly THAT fantastic. At first I wanted to keep comparing them to the Sookie books, and in some ways they are- there is some light hearted, southern fun in them. But they take darker paths and there have been plenty of instances where I catch myself holding my breath because the situation Mac is in is scaring me so much!! I'm not through with the series, I'm still waiting to get book 5 (since I'm one of the few people to not have a Kindle yet) and I'm going to be honest with you, going this long dangling on the edge of where book 4 left me is almost as hard as when I quit smoking. Seriously. I'm just cheap and I'm having to talk myself into going and paying for the hardcover, but I'm going to.
This book will forever change how you think of faries- this is no Tinkerbell, people. The way Moning describes things, she paints extremely vivid pictures of these creatures that I guarantee you'll be seeing when you close your eyes at night. Also, being that much of the story takes place in Dublin, she writes their dialect with so much accuracy that you can hear the different accents as clearly as if they were sitting there talking to you. Not only are these books amazing, but Karen Moning is amazing and I can't wait to read more from her. I will make an update when I finish book 5.
P.S. I'm sorry if I ramble... I'm new to blogging and sometimes my thoughts come out in whirlwinds!
