Slow beginning but good story

Darkfever  - Karen Marie Moning, Joyce Bean

Of all the fantasy creatures, the fae interest me the least. The fact that I was able to really enjoy this story moved this book from 3 stars to 4, even though it had a slow beginning and Mac bored the hell out of me with all the description of clothes.

I really liked the Dublin setting - I was thinking that if I ever visit the City, I'll be scared out of my mind of dark corners - and the gradual unraveling of the fae world. I also liked Mac - under her Barbie exterior, she has a logical brain and things wouldn't escape her notice for too long.

The narrator did a really good job with almost all the voices except Barrons, which is a shame because with a better voice for him, the audiobook would have been great. I sort of got used to it by the end, but I'm still looking forward to Gigante's narration in books 4 & 5.
