14 hours and 9 minutes...tick tock.

I am not a nutter, but several years ago I innocently picked up a book that got me hooked immediately. I was hooked to the point that teens were with Twilight and Harry Potter.  I have never been a huge series reader, but this was different.  This sucked me in to the point that I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next book and ordered them way ahead of time for a release date delivery. Finally, after almost a 2 year wait the last book in the series drops tomorrow. 

Book #1:

"My philosophy is pretty simple-any day nobody’s

trying to kill me is a good day in my book.

I haven’t had many good days lately."  ~MacKayla Lane
Book #2:
"When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled

alley in Dublin, I came 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
Book #3:
He calls me his Queen of the Night.

I'd die for him. I'd kill for him, too."
 
~Alina Lane (ripped from the pages of her journal after her murder)
Book #4:


"But for those of us who live large, the most alive we ever feel

is when we're punching air with a fist, uncurling our middle

finger with a cool smile, and flipping Death the big old bird."

~MacKayla Lane

And finally......
"Evil is a completely different creature, Mac.

Evil is bad that believes it's good."
 
~Unknown

This type of thing, may not be for everyone since it is considered dark fantasy/paranormal, but it is steamy and addictive.  I read all generes, so I think it is possible for anyone to enjoy this series.  I have recommened it to several friends (older and younger) and everyone seems to have the same reaction.  Lucky for you....if you start the series now you won't have to be tortured with long pauses between books!
