Faefever: The Fever Series-Karen Marie Moning
Publication Date: 2008
The New York Times bestselling author of Darkfever and Bloodfever returns to Dublin’s Fae-infested shores in a bold, sensual new novel. Hurtling us into a realm of seduction and shadows, Karen Marie Moning tells the enthralling tale of a woman who explores the limits of her mysterious powers as she enters a world of ancient sorcery—and confronts an enemy more insidious than she could ever have imagined.
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.…
Obviously, if you haven't read this series yet, you might want to just scroll past this review in your feedreader, as spoilers follow in the book descriptions!
Yeah, I lied when I said I wasn't going to rush out and get the third book in the Fever series. I doubly lied because I got the third and fourth books!
Faefever is the turning point in the series. The stakes are higher, the action is more kick-ass, and the sexual tension literally sets the page on fire. I'll say this, if you're checking these books out the the library, just do yourself the favor of getting them all at once. I didn't do that at first, and I'm glad I did with the third and fourth books because when Faefever ends, you're going to want to pick up Dreamfever straight away. Seriously.
Dreamfever: The Fever Series-Karen Marie Moning
Publication Date: 2009
He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought-and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.
As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V"lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister's diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac's greatest enemy delivers a final challenge...
It's an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth-about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons...and about the world she thought she knew.
If the previous books in this series were like crack, then I don't know what to call Dreamfever. Crack 2.0? It seems like everything I loved about all the other books in this series is amplified. It's sexier, darker, and unfortunately there's a lot more questions asked that we don't get answers for! Mac's been through a lot by the time we reach this book and she isn't having anyone's BS. I love how she's grown as a character throughout the series.
I've read the series entirely from the library, but I know I'll have to buy my own copies of the books. and I'll be sad to see it end with the last book, Shadowfever. As I write this, there are three people ahead of me for Shadowfever at the library and I hope I can get it soon, as I have to know what happens!
