MacKayla finds herself relieved to have gotten her father back on the plane and headed back to her mother and even feeling pretty secure about it. What had Barrons said to him, what had they talked about? What ever it was it worked and Mac was relieved. Now Inspector O'Duffy is breathing down her neck again and all of a sudden she's back on his important list. But then she finds herself in jail being interrogated for the death of the man. His brother in law is now "tape on her ass" as Inspector Jayne described his intensions to follow her. Well she bluffed her way out of this one but she didnt know how and why hadnt Barrons come to her rescue.
Mac has found that she can sense the Sinsar Dubh and not w/out complete reprocussions, though Barrons says that they should be able to alleviate it by diluting the effect by making her a bit evil. This happens when she is abducted by Malluce and taken to a Burren a place underground and tortured and beaten by the livid Malluce nearly to death and miraculously Barrons found her. Later she learned that the cruce that Barrons had given her and put on her upper arm and left with her other stuff in the ally way above the Burren, was not what Barrons used to locate her but a tatoo at the base of her neck hidden in her hair line a Z she and Barrons bickered about alot of things. But she was feeling bad that she had not let him do it after Malluce had nabbed her. Now she was livid but this is only the small thing with all that was going on around her.
She and Barrons had shared an intimate moment with her under the influence of eating Unseelie which incidentally was the only they had to save her life.
and allowed her to take her vengence out on the Vampire.

“In the final analysis words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them. He thinks you have the heart of a warrior. He believes in you. Believe in him.”Ryodan
