Book Review: Faefever (Fever Series Book 3) by Karen Marie Moning

Fever Series Book 3
Title: Faefever
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Series: Fever #3
Pages: 416
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too. When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds—with devastating consequences.…

I just finished Faefever, and I'm not even remotely close to happy right now!! All that is keeping me from chunking the book across the room is that I have the fourth one in my possession and don't have to wait for it. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then I'll go ahead and just put it out there...CLIFFHANGER!!!

Faefever started out innocent enough. Actually, it was kind of slow at the beginning. But once the action started coming into play it did not stop! I could not put Faefever down, I mean the more I read, the more likely it was possible that I would find out more about the mysterious Jericho Barrons. I still don't know what to think of him. Sometimes I like him, but at other times I just want Mac to get out of there and just go into hiding (if that was even possible).

These books in the fever series are just full of suspense. There are also twists that I don't even see coming! I don't think I have mentioned it yet in my other two reviews, but I am so thankful that an author finally put a pronunciation guide in the book!! It always drives me crazy when an author puts crazy names in books that I have no idea how to even sound out. But thank you for the pronunciation guide Ms. Moning, it almost makes up for that cliffhanger......not. Oh well, I'll just have to start the next book. I'm just glad that it's already out and I don't have to wait months for it (that would have been excruciatingly painful)!!

Book Review: Bloodfever (Fever Series Book 2) by Karen Marie Moning

Fever Series Book 2
Title: Bloodfever
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Series: Fever #2
Pages: 303
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who’d get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.

When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over 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’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh–a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.…

Ms. Moning most certainly has a way with words. The descriptions and imagery she creates is absolutely amazing! There are details that you need to remember, because they come into play later. The fever series is much more than just a paranormal read. It actually has an amazing plot line and almost reads like a mystery (which I love by the way!).

There is not just one mystery in here either. This book is instead filled with several mysteries. You can't help but keep turning the pages waiting...and hoping, for any of the mysteries to unfold. Of all the mysterious things in this book, one that intrigues me the most is Mac's constant savior, Jericho Barrons.

Barrons is just one huge mystery and I can't wait for it to finally unravel! I mean the tension between him and "Ms. Lane" just keeps building and building! As I said in my review of Darkfever, I do have my hands on the next few books in the series, so upon finishing this review I'm going to go ahead and start in on the next installment. There, review finished☺ (now to get back to reading...)!!

Book Review: Darkfever (Fever Series Book 1) by Karen Marie Moning

Fever Series Book 1
Title: Darkfever
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Series: Fever #1
Pages: 347
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Hunting her sister's murderer in the gritty streets of Dublin, MacKayla Lane discovers a power she didn't know she possessed: the ability to track an ancient evil lost by the immortal race that created it - a dangerous relic coveted my mortal and immortal alike. In this deadly game of life-and-death stakes, is there anyone MacKayla can trust?

I really enjoyed Darkfever! Mac is on a quest to find her sister's killer and even travels overseas...alone, to the scene of the crime. She does not find at all what she expected. Instead, she discovers a world that she never knew existed. In Darkfever we get just a taste of what this new world really is. I am looking forward to Moning expanding it as the series progresses. So far though, the picture that Moning has painted does not look like that world is very inviting, especially to Mac.

After getting about halfway through the book, I went ahead and checked out the next three from the library (a little excessive, I know). I just knew that this was going to be a series that I liked. It is a bit edgier than my typical reads, and I found Mac to be a pretty relatable character. I mean, we both love pink nail polish!! Okay, there is more to it than that. She is at a point in her life where everything is changing and must choose between letting go of the past, or running away from her future. Everyone goes through this at least one point in their life.

The copy of Darkfever that I got my hands on included a note from the author. In this note, Moning wrote about how this was not her typical subject she wrote about. She explained that "Sometimes you don't get a choice. A story shows up on your doorstep and stalks you until you tell it." I am so glad that Moning stepped outside her comfort zone and gave us the story that demanded to be told.

"Dealing with the Fae is like dealing with any addiction - you give in, they'll own you; you resist, they never will."
