The Who's Who In The Fever Series
On the surface, Barrons looks like a man - an incredibly carnal and sexually masculine one. A bookstore owner and antique collector, Mac joins with him in search of the Sinsar Dubh. But nothing is as it seems with Barrons and he is cloaked in secrecy. We don't know what he is but what we do know is frightening (as well as extremely arousing) He is powerful and someone you do not want to mess with. Shades are afraid of him, in fact everyone is - humans and Fae alike. Cold and formal one moment, he looks at Mac with dark hunger and has shown those brief moments where you think you catch a glimpse of something softer. Don't make the mistake of romanticizing him - he's very vocal in saying he's not that kind of guy. We'll see. Just to let you know, if I ever turned Pri-ya (an addict to Fae sex), he's the first person I'm calling!! LOL
He is a Seelie prince and high consort to the current Queen. Incredibly erotic with a sexual energy that turns women Pri-ya, he approached Mac with the request that she find the Sinsar Dubh for the Queen. He tries hard to please and earn the trust of Mac, allowing her liberties other Fae would never allow. Don't allow his attempts to appear human fool you, he is incredibly powerful and when angry has the ability to affect the weather. Although Mac doesn't quite trust him, he offers her help, answers her questions and takes her for much needed trips in the sunshine. When you see him, make sure he mutes himself otherwise you'll be stripping your clothes off and not even be aware your doing it.
Also known as the Lord Master, he's the mystery "man" Mac's sister Alina was dating and he's the mastermind behind the craziness that's happening around Dublin. Seeing she has the same powers her her sister, he wants to use Mac to get the Sinsar Dubr for him so he can hold the ultimate power. Mac doesn't trust him though because she believes he's the one that murdered her sister and she's hell bent on making him pay. For those who've read KMM's Highlander series, he should seem familiar to you, giving you a heads up on just who he is and what his motives are. He's the reason the walls eventually fell and why Dublin is swarming with Unseelie. For the villian of the story, he sure is smooth!
A sexy guy with a Scottish brogue, he's part of the MacKeltar clan - the Druids who work the rituals that keep the walls between worlds up and working. Sent to Dublin with the orders to keep an eye on Barrons, he strikes up a friendship with Mac when she finds out he had met Alina. He's someone you can't lie too because he'll know straight away, having the gift/curse of knowing when someones not being honest. He's probably the only one Mac can really trust and it'll be interesting to see what happens next with him.
A teenager, she's an amazing sidhe seer with the power and gift of super strength and speed. She's able to gain access to places and conversations others could only dream of because she's able to flash in and out quickly. She develops a sister-like bond with Mac, being the one to save her when Mac desperately needed it and together they kick Unseelie butt - Mac with the spear and Dani with the sword. She loves to cuss (which Mac reminds her is unladylike) and is fearless. Having met Barrons and V'lane, she's still undecided which one she prefers. All she knows is she'll lose her virginity to one of them!
We don't know much about him other than when Mac dials IYCGM, Ryodan picks up. He's loyal to Barrons and works to protect Mac at his command. You can find him at Chester's.
She is the Head Mistress of the sidhe-seers, taking care of the group at the abbey. She has an adversarial relationship with Mac - they both don't trust each other. One of the first people Mac talked to in Dublin, she left Mac to fend for herself until she realized Mac's powers and then tried to pull her into the fold so she could use her. The Sinsar Dubh was part of her duty to guard and although it's not clear how, the book escaped. She's canny and ruthless, holding her charges back until Mac steps in and challenges her.
A Garda officer, he's dedicated to keeping Dublin safe and its people protected but with the crime rate going through the roof, he's fighting a losing battle. He meets Mac after he comes and interrogates her over the death of Inspector O'Duffy (the officer looking into the death of Alina) He proves a stubborn adversary, tailing Mac everywhere, trying to wear her down so she'll give him the answers to his questions. Nothing prepares him for when she does and as much as it horrified him at first, he does what he needs to do to see the threat that surrounds him. When everything goes to Hell, he's there on the front line.
People we know little about but I think will hold some kind of role in Shadowfever -
Cruce - He's the Fae that placed a curse on the Sifting Silvers because of his hatred for the Unseelie King, making them dangerous to use. It's unknown whether he's Seelie or Unseelie
The Dreamy-Eyed Boy - He turns up throughout the series and the last time Mac saw him, things got a little strange. He's definitely someone to keep an eye on.
