My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.” — MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. — Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh -- a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.

Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

Okay, so you know those books/series that are extremely easy to predict. By chapter 5 you already know who is going to end up together, how the world will end, how it will then be saved, yada yada... Shadowfever, no scratch that, the entire Fever series is not that way. While reading Shadowfever I felt like I was on a rollercoaster...full of loops,twists, and the dark. Yes I know, seems pretty intense right? Well it was! The entire book (all 670 pages of it!) kept me on edge. At times I was confused and others had me shocked. It is highly possible that while reading this, that my face was in a permanent position of shock, you know eyebrows raised and some crazy wild eyes...yep that was me.

All of the twists and turns made this a great end to a fantastic series! It was definitely not a let down like some other finale books that I know. Moning always throws in a little extra at the end. This time is no different, she did not disappoint! She included a deleted scene! How awesome is that?

I know I said that this is the final book in the Fever series, but don't be sad. Did I mention that Ms. Moning is pretty no, epically awesome? The final page of the book did say The End...but when you flip it over to the next page it promised ...For Now!!! And this is a promise that wasn't broken!! The Fever series lives on!

If you still have any questions about how amazing Shadowfever is, then listen up, Dude, (as Dani would say) I finished Shadowfever in less than 48 hours. Yes I have done this before, but not with books that are over 600 pages!! That is a lot of words!! I couldn't help it, I had to keep reading! The only reason I didn't finish it sooner was because the text started messing with my eyes and I got a major headache. There's only so much sleep I can go without! Don't let my crazy headache and blurry vision deter you, it was a choice that I would gladly make again. Shadowfever was by far the best book in the series...for now!
