The Final Countdown...

Three things I've noticed today: 1) It's the last day of October; 2) It's Halloween; and 3) New releases hit the stores.

Can you believe it's the last day of October? I certainly cannot. It's quite scary to think that in 2 months, we'll be practically popping the cork on some champagne and saying "Hello!" to 2007! Where does the time go???

And Halloween -- since we've moved into a new house, I'm preparing for the gads of trick-or-treaters we think we'll have. If the number of children waiting in our driveway for the school bus is any indication, we'll have a ton. My fingers are crossed I actually get to scarf down some mini-Hersheys and mini-Nestle Crunches before they're all gone!

Here's the part I'm waiting for: the new releases.

With her New York Times bestseller Spell of the Highlander, Karen Marie Moning brought a world of ancient magic and timeless love to life. Now, Moning embarks on a fantastic new series about a woman drawn into a seductive other-worldly realm-only to be caught up in a universe-altering battle. A sizzling spin-off from the popular "Highlander" series, Darkfever is filled with captivating characters, paranormal elements, and unparalleled sensuality and heat.

Darkfever opens approximately three and a half years after Spell of the Highlander ends. MacKayla O'Connor's life is good. 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 soon is 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, 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.

I am reading Dark Fever right now. I can't put it down. The 'feel' of the story is different than Highlander series, but it's been very exciting and enjoyable. I keep hoping that one of the twins will pop up in this story... .
