Cicely Waters, owl shifter and Wind Witch, has rescued the Fae Prince Grieve at a great cost. Their reunion has lost them the allegiance of the Summer Queen — and the tolerance of the vampires. In desperation they turn to the Consortium for help. Now, to regain the good will of Lainule, they must dare to enter the heart of Myst’s realm.

Karen Marie Moning - Darkfever
MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens. When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death - a cryptic message on Mac'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…. As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister's death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane - an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women - closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac's true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book - because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….
Karen Marie Moning - Bloodfever
I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who'd get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic. When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I've learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it…. MacKayla Lane's ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland's shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets. 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. For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.…

George R. R. Martin - A Clash of Kings
The second novel of Martin's titanic Song of Ice and Fire saga (A Game of Thrones, 1996) begins with Princess Arya Stark fleeing her dead father's capital of King's Landing, disguised as a boy. It ends with the princess, now known as Weasel, having led the liberation of the accursed castle of Harrenhal. In between, her actions map the further course of a truly epic fantasy set in a world bedecked with 8000 years of history, beset by an imminent winter that will last 10 years and bedazzled by swords and spells wielded to devastating effect by the scrupulous and unscrupulous alike. Standout characters besides Arya include Queen Cersei, so lacking in morals that she becomes almost pitiable; the queen's brother, the relentlessly ingenious dwarf Tyrion Lannister; and Arya's brother, Prince Brandon, crippled except when he runs with the wolves in his dreams. The novel is notable particularly for the lived-in quality of its world, created through abundant detail that dramatically increases narrative length even as it aids suspension of disbelief; for the comparatively modest role of magic (although with one ambitious young woman raising a trio of dragons, that may change in future volumes); and for its magnificent action-filled climax, an amphibious assault on King's Landing, now ruled by the evil Queen Cersei. Martin may not rival Tolkien or Robert Jordan, but he ranks with such accomplished medievalists of fantasy as Poul Anderson and Gordon Dickson. Here, he provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites?and this is only the second course of a repast with no end in sight. Author tour.

Hang around Faerie, where there’s nothing to eat (Fey blood=nasty) just because our intrepid heroine parked him there? Uh, no. Not so much. Because Tomas is obsessed, and has been for pretty much his whole existence, with one thing: taking out Alejandro, the aforementioned murdering bastard. In “The Day of the Dead,” he slips back into our world to confront his nemesis, only to find unexpected help in the form of a band of magical mercenaries. Think the A-Team with spells and potions instead of (well, actually in addition to) guns and knives and things that go boom. It makes for a lot of mayhem down Mexico way.

Karen Marie Moning - Álom és valóság
Még csak néhány hét telt el azóta, hogy a sorozatunk első kötetéből megismert MacKayla Lane repülőgépe földet ért Dublinban, és az ír fővárosban máris fenekestül felfordult a világ. Mac erre alighanem csak annyit mondana: na és, az övé is felfordult, abban a pillanatban, amikor értesítették róla, hogy Írországban tanuló nővérének brutálisan megcsonkított holttestét megtalálták egy szeméttel borított sikátorban, Dublin északi részén. Macet attól fogva a bosszú élteti. Pártfogója, a titokzatos Jericho Barrons segíti őt abban, hogy az ősi tündérvilágba vezető misztikus nyomokat követve, eljusson Alina gyilkosáig. A nyomozás során megismeri a város ódon falai között nyüzsgő ijesztő árnyfigurákat, szörnyeket, gengsztereket és gonosz tündéreket, megtanul káromkodni, lopni, hazudni és ölni. Egyetlen rövid hónap alatt sikerül a város minden mágikus erővel bíró lényének a tyúkszemére lépnie. Egyre több veszély leselkedik rá, de szerencséjére Barrons mindig kéznél van, hogy kimentse ellenségei karmaiból. Csak egy kivétel van: V’lane, a halált hozó szextündér, aki olyan intenzív szexuális vágyat kelt Macben, hogy a puszta látására a lány vetkőzni kezd. És V’lane többnyire váratlanul tűnik fel Mac közelében. Ahogy most is. A lány elgyengült térddel rogyott le a homokba. El akarta fordítani a tekintetét, de a szeme nem engedelmeskedett. Karnyújtásnyi távolságra voltak tőle a tündérherceg tökéletes testrészei, amelyeket magában akart érezni, hogy csillapítsák szörnyű, embertelen vágyát. Ökölbe szorította a kezét, hogy könnyebb legyen ellenállnia. A tündérherceg ezen csak nevetett, mire ő lehunyta a szemét, és lefeküdt a puha, simogató fehér homokba. Nem kellett mást tennie, mint az előtte álló Maestróra bíznia a testét, aki úgy játszik rajta, ahogy senki más; simogatása elképzelhetetlen crescendo; olyan húrokat penget, amelyeket korábban még senki, és többé nem is fog. Egy meztelen tündérherceg láttán minden más férfi örökre háttérbe szorul. Vajon hol lehet most Barrons? Képes-e mégis legyőzni a veszedelmes szextündér vonzerejét és mesterkedését, s megmenteni a lányt a halálos ölelésből?
