    SPOILER FREE - HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY REVIEW!The first book was good. The second book was great. This third book was holyeffinbatmanfreakinamazing!! Sooooo, if my calculations are correct (and if you don't take into account that I'm terrible at math), I'm guessing that just touching the next book in the series should result in a violent, arms-flailing, dance-inspiring joygasm!!!I have Dreamfever around here somewhere, let's test out my theory.  jwjueu^{*]!jiekebg sk^{wgsfs^{+ssgs bdjeue%]*^shbsu bsuygd%*ihdhjdb^*]%%uhebh enehe^]*]%usby egy^]^%beyg!!!! Sorry, my mind wasn't able to comprehend real words there for a second..... What were we talking about? Oh yeah, Faefever.First off, let me say - Best first four words of a book ever! I'd die for him. Those four words sent my mind reeling. I really thought I knew exactly what she meant and I thought for sure I knew what it meant, and is that really what it is? And then no, it really is something soooo completely different and you don't find out til much later and what the HELL????I know, I know. Just add a few "like"s or "and um"s in there and I would have sounded like Miley Cyrus.Hey y'all, I'm Miley Cyrus! And that's preeta cool!So, it got off to a great start, but KMM's answers are just never simple, are they?Barrons just oozes sensuality. I expect if I ever came across such a man, I would act similarly to the way Mac did initially around V'lane. But I wouldn't be quite so restrained.See, Barrons represents everything we women have been trying to train out of men for the past hundred years. The restless masculinity, randomly throwing women against a wall, expecting a woman to do as you say just because you asked her to, stalking, interrogating. But I don't care because he is effing hot.I hate KMM! I hate her for making me love someone I should hate. I hate her for not giving me exactly what I want. I hate her for ending her books the way she does and for giving me goosebumps at said ending.The way I hate her for all these things that I love so much reminded of the movie "Ten Things I Hate About You". So I have composed a horrifically cheesetastic poem about Barrons and Mac inspired by (okay directly ripped off from) the poem in the film.I hate the way Barrons talks to Mac, and the fact that he's HOT with long hair.I hate that he let's her drive his car, and I really hate his brooding stare.I hate that he never ever laughs and the way he reads her mind.I hate how the Sinsar Duhb makes her sick, and how it makes her lose time.I hate the way he won't give her insight and I hate that's he's one big lie.I hate the way he only calls her Mac when he thinks she gonna die.I hate it when he's not around and that he doesn't answer to her call.But most of all I hate the way that I can't possibly hate him, not even a little bit, not even at all.Cheesy? Yes! But not as much as this:Now that's just dangerous!My review for the first book, Darkfever. Spoiler FREE.For the second book, Bloodfever. Spoiler Alert!!!The fourth book, Dreamfever. Spoiler FREE.The fifth and final book, Shadowfever. Spoiler Alert!!!

    Mac Version 3.0I start this book expecting little sweet Barbie Mac.......and this happens.Someone starts mailing Mac pages from her sister's Alina's journal and that start making her think. Then the two main guys that have been playing her still won't answer any questions. They seem to want to just use her for their own purposes. Well, Mac starts getting tired of it.She starts to realize that she is all she has on her side. She must not rely on a man to come save her! Hells yeah. She starts using them for more of what she needs to find her way in the fae over run world that she is stuck in. I think the first two books were fun for me..NOW I'VE BECOME A FANATIC!!There were times when I probably would have thrown my panties at V'lane and Barrons..but then there were times I'd have smacked the shit out of them. Then there is that frigging cliffhanger of an ending!! I'm only getting one of these books a month! I don't know if I can wait!

    I think rereading Faefever gave me an emotional aneurysm. Nothing works anymore.In book 3 of the Fever series, Mac comes to realize that all the men in her life are trash and she needs to branch out; place some eggs in different baskets, if you will. KMM deepens some of her old characters (Inspector Jayne, Dani, etc) and brings in a few new ones (like Christian MacKeltar, my personal darling). This is all very nice and soothing.Why did I lose ten years of my life reading this book? Well.KMM likes to hold on to nearly all of her cards until the end of book 5, Shadowfever. This works out well because she drops enough hints along the way to keep her readers hot and bothered, but still smacks them in the face with the final big reveal. I think you'd be hard-pressed to guess the series ending.But rereading while holding all the answers already is a whole different matter. The series is headed in a certain.......... direction ....... and seeing all the clues and plot points that push Mac towards that point is REALLY stressful. But it's worth it! I mean, do you really love a book series if reading it doesn't put you through hell and back?

    What is there to say about this book that hasn’t already been said? As much as I loved the first two in the series, this is the one that truly hits me every time I read it. It’s like reading book five in Harry Potter. You go from some darkness to a LOT of darkness.Oh sure, the book starts off safe enough, but by the end of it…madness, chaos, pestilence, famine, war and death.This is the book that truly gets most readers on Mac’s side. I’ve said before that I was always there, but reading this takes me beyond that every time, makes me want to hate-morph into the living, breathing embodiment of her vengeance, pick up her spear and stab everyone that so much as looks at her wrong.She’s just so…alone.*sob*It seems the only information she learns is that which she’s able to barter, beg, steal, or discover for herself. No one offers anything up freely in this world of powerful enemies. Everyone plays their hands too close to their chests, especially those that expect her loyalty and compliance. I don’t blame her one iota for not trusting anyone. I wouldn’t have either. How can you trust people that blatantly avoid telling you anything and then have the audacity to get mad at you for making a mistake because of the ignorant state they’ve willingly left you in?Yet at the same time, I can’t really blame anyone else for the games they were playing. With Mac being pulled in so many directions, who’s to say where her loyalties lie? Especially when she doesn’t seem to know herself. Understanding the manner of their secrets as I now do, having already read the series several times, I get why they wouldn’t want to reveal them to her until they could be sure of her loyalty. It's a vicious cycle. The first time I read this I found myself almost fully on V’lane’s side. He seemed to be the only one that was willing to help Mac. Barrons nearly gave me wrinkles around my eyes from how much he made me frown. Reading this for the umpteenth time, I feel…differently. Except about Rowena. Fuck that old bitch.Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to pick myself up off the floor after an ending that leaves me reeling every time, make myself a drink, take a deep breath and press on to book four. Because we all remember what happens in the beginning of book four.*waggles brows*

    What a cruel, cruel ending... If I were to wait a year to find out what happens to Mac next, I'd be royally pissed right now, because as much as I liked the book, I think this kind of ending is unacceptable and disrespectful to the series' fans.Faefever is a very dark book and it starts out dark too. I missed Mac's happy-go-lucky attitude and flirtations with Barrons in previous installments. The only relief from the doom we get in this book comes in the form of MacHalo and Druid Voice lessons. Like the previous two books - Darkfever and Bloodfever, there is not much resolution to any big problem/mystery, but there is progress. We learn more about how Unseelie came to life, who imprisoned them and why the walls holding them together are now crumbling. We find out the nature of the Book and what makes it difficult to get a hold of it. We get to know what the Lord Master is. The Fae world is getting more and more complex. There are more players both on human and Fae side, and all characters are interesting in their own way. I am actually quite surprised that an author who previously wrote highlander bodice rippers created such an amazing mythology.But in spite of all these positives, I think Faefever is the weakest in the series structure-wise. It is hard to say what exactly the main story arc of this novel. There is a series of events, many of them dramatic, but the story is unfinished. The ending is vague, the narration stops mid-scene and it calls for a good wrap-up. I am extremely attached to the series now, to Mac and Jericho, and the entire world of Fae, sidhe-seers and Rhino-boys. I will be starting Dreamfever very soon and hope it will not leave me hanging in angst, waiting for the final chapter of this story - Shadowfever - which comes out 6 long months from now.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm WELL...Even with a lot of my questions still unanswered...Even though I was still waiting to fall in love with Jericho and that still didn't happen... and even with the ending being spoiled for me (THANKS GIRL WHO PUT THE FREAKING ENDING IN THE FIRST SENTENCE OF HER REVIEW WITH NO WARNING!!! SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL FOR YOU!) I still give this book a perfect five!!!Though all questions weren't answered we learn so much more in this book. I was also happy that there was a lot more action as well! As far as the ending goes... Even though it was brutal and cliffhanging and I can see why some people might not be able to hang I think we can all agree that the way it was executed was done amazingly... so much so that I ran out and bought book four and am starting it tonight.READ THIS REVIEW AND OTHERS OVER ON OUR BLOG SOUTHERN BRED SOUTHERN READSOUTHERN BRED SOUTHERN READSOUTHERN BRED SOUTHERN READ

    “Who the fuck are you, Ms. Lane?”Rage filled me. Rage at what had been done to her. Rage at him for bringing it up. The thought that no one could see or judge me was liberating. I swelled with grief and anger.“Now tell me who you are.”“Vengeance,” I said in a cold voice.There are certain things in my life that remains comfortingly constant despite the chaos that sometimes peppers my life. For instance, the sky is blue. 70% dark chocolate is delicious. I look really good in dark green.Jericho Barrons is an asshat.Well, fuck. That last fact might no longer be true.I don't know how this happened, honestly. I don't think I'm a sheep. The majority of my friends have long professed their love for Barrons...and honestly, I just didn't get it. I still don't. Jericho is still not my type of guy, but upon the second time reading this book...I think he's finally growing on me.I turned around slowly, and looked up at him. He stiffened and sucked in a shallow breath. After a moment, he touched my cheek.“Such naked pain,” he whispered.I turned my face into his palm and closed my eyes. His fingers threaded into my hair, cupped my head, and brushed the brand. It heated at his touch. “Never show it to me again.” His face was cold, hard, his voice colder.I started the Fever series with a horrible impression of Jericho that never really left. To me, he was an overbearing, patronizing, violent asshole. I have to admit that the first time around, I largely skimmed book 2 and 3, and my first, overwhelmingly terrible impression of Jericho never really changed.Upon a second reading: a more careful, critical reading, I admit I might have been wrong the first time. The contrast and complexities in his character is particularly more notable for me today, coming off the recent reading of a particularly forgettable UF/PNR book, with forgettable characters.I still don't like Jericho that much, but I love his character. I've come to see that while he is a jerk, he never goes over-the-line-violent. He stops just short of it, and he has his moments that just makes you wonder---maybe there's something there, worth investigating, under the surface.And then the next moment, it's gone. Leaving you to wonder if that spark of humanity was ever there in the first place.That's the thing that attracts me about Jericho's character...that's what FINALLY grew on me in this book. After so many books with lackluster characters, with predictable behaviors, this is one that keeps me guessing, who runs hot and cold...but just hot enough to keep me intrigued. That's why he evokes such strong emotions within me, and that's what keeps me hooked. It is easy to hate a character. Anyone can make a character merely...loathsome. It is quite another to have a character that keeps you on your toes, not knowing what he is, who he is, how he will react. It's exhausting at times, but ultimately, I am never bored, and that is what I seek within a book and its characters. Some escapism...and it doesn't get any better than the amazing world and setting in this series.Mac's character is also improving by leaps and bounds. She's still a girly-girl. She still enjoys dressing up, but reality is smacking her in the face, and she is dealing with it and adapting to the situation just beautifully. She takes action, she learns to be manipulative. She takes initiative. She is not content to remain a passive, weak damsel in distress; she is willing to seek help from the devil---or Barrons---same thing, really, if that's what it takes. Her character develops beautifully in this book.The first time around, despite my contempt for the characters, I absolutely loved the setting, the writing, the darkness of it all. This has not changed. The writing and scenery is spectacular. The portrayal of Dublin rips away the happy, safe, warm environment that I loved from reading Maeve Binchy's books---and being the creepy, strange woman I am, I think I might prefer the darkness. The writing is lovely, the insights into the nature of darkness, particularly from Mac's viewpoint, is remarkable, and is a better portrayal of Mac's inner nature and intelligence than I would have thought. She still has hope, she still has brightness within her, but Mac's understanding of evil makes me sympathize with her more than her natural effervescence and vivacity ever could.I still think I like V'lane more than Jericho, though.He began bringing me gifts. One day he brought me chocolate that wouldn’t make me gain weight, no matter how much I ate.COME ON NOW. CHOCOLATE THAT WOULDN'T MAKE YOU GAIN WEIGHT? Gimme that shit.

    Fourth Read January 2018: 4 starsThird Read October 2015: 4 stars Second Read November 2014: 5 starsFirst Read September 2014: 5 starsFour times and that ending still gets me! GAH! The only worse cliffhanger is the ending of the next book! But I can't wait for Book 4, Chapter 4! YAS. New thoughts: There are favorite scenes (they all include Barrons), but parts of this made me want to start skimming. I've never been a huge fan of the scenes with Jayne or V'Lane or the other sidhe-seers. I like Dani, but everyone else is just a drag and I hate Rowena. Thankfully, she isn't in this one too much. This is the one where Mac spends a lot of time with the "other characters." Where the supporting characters and overall plot gets fleshed out more. Sometimes, that isn't the most exciting to read (when you've read it four times and already know these little things). But some scenes still felt fresh and exciting. Best series ever, still! Our first annual re-read of the Fever series with the MacHalo group starts October 26, 2015! Here's the schedule (sorry, I can't keep to a schedule with this series - it takes over and I have to devour it once I start):Darkfever: October 26 / Bloodfever: November 9 / Faefever: November 23 / Dreamfever: December 7 / Shadowfever: December 21 / Iced: January 5 / Burned: January 12New Thoughts: Still really good, but I am taking away a star because I didn't quite like it as much as before. It reminds me a bit of Iced because most of it is about Mac's interactions with the sidhe-seers: Dani, Rowena, Kat, etc. Christian is in this a lot. A main theme is also Mac's mistrust of EVERYONE around her, esp. Barrons. This is her book where she thinks he is "the bad guy" and that's just not as interesting to me. :P Also, V'lane is in this one a lot, and I don't like him. The ending is spectacular and shocking. I just found myself skimming a lot of the middle. There was a lot of info-dumping which works if it's a first read. You need to know all of this. But, on a third read, I just wasn't feeling it as much.Second read review: This is book 3 in the (mis)adventures of MacKayla Lane, sidhe-seer, Null, and OOP detector. MacKayla is surrounded by evil fae and people she can't trust - or doesn't know if she can. There are people who seem like they might be trustworthy (Dani, Christian, Kat), some who seem highly iffy (Inspector Jayne, Rowena, V'Lane, Barrons), and some who are downright villains (the LM - Lord Master for short, Fiona, Derek O'Bannion). And this list gets shuffled around pretty frequently, except for a couple exceptions. The thing to remember is that hardly any time has passed since book 1 and things are changing and developing like CRAZY. Mac is evolving into a pro-active quick thinker and an intelligent woman the people around her shouldn't underestimate. She's still flawed and making (beginner) mistakes which is totally understandable, in my view.New thoughts about my second read of this book: I did notice some repetitiveness in the beginning and found myself wanting to skim through the sections of Mac's longer inner dialoguing. But overall, this was just as fabulous as the first time I read it. That ending is a doozy! Cliffhanger from hell. My mortal eyes just couldn't read the words fast enough in that action-packed maelstrom of a finale. original review:Ok, I'm officially in love with this series.Still have no idea what is going on with Barrons, but that's ok.And now the whole world has gone to unseelie hell in a hand-basket. Poor Mac. Crazy cliffhanger. Must go start reading the next one now.

    I can't remember how I felt about the whole book because the end left me hopeless. The first three books were definitely leading up to something bigger. All the events could have been put into one book, so I'm eager to read the 4th with the changes set in motion by this one. I adore all the characters, Mac is so real, and Barron's is just an ass. I hate him but he's such an enigma.

    It's still too soon for me to write a review, but I need to talk about this book, so I'm just going to start sprouting nonsense and see where this thing will go. This will be a crap review (what else is new?) but I... gah! *flaps hands*Man, I'm loving these books, goddammit. What the hell is up with me and the Pri-ya 'tude? I just finished the third book and I already want to start reading it again. I am rolling around on the floor with these books in my arms, I want to clear Amazon's entire stock of this series and shove copies at everybody who comes within a 10-mile radius, screaming "WHY AREN'T YOU READING THIS RIGHT NOW" in their faces. I don't even understand why these books are taking over my life right now. I'm either reading these books or thinking about these books, and I'm pretty sure I'm dreaming about them too. mostly about Barrons pressing me up against the wall and pinning my arms above my head with one hand.I love how much Mac's character is growing, I can see, feel her changing while I'm there, watching her! Right in front of me! *points maniacally* I just can't seem to find anything about her I don't like. I like her when she's Bookstore!Mac, I like her when she's ScrewYouBarrons!Mac, I like her when she's Hero!Mac.... And even Inventor!Mac. I reacted the same was as Barrons to her MacHalo. Priceless.Her constant battles with Barrons are delicious, although I felt bad when he completely trashed her attempts at being nice. I understand why she wants what she wants from Barrons, but I can also understand why he doesn't want to give it to her. That doesn't mean I can't cheer them on to go at it like bunnies in front of me.Also, this is really not the appropriate moment in the review to mention a minor but at this point, I'm barely capable of typing, because my hands keep reaching for my Kindle, but I'm growing very fond of Dani, d'aaaw, I smile every time I see her ^^See, I can't do OMGYAY reviews. Crap crap crap. *fangirls*I'm like a Jack Russel on LSD right now.

    First reread with my girl Tanya, January 2015.Original rating: 4New rating: 4.5First review: just two months ago. Think I'm going to write another one so soon? Think again. All you'll be getting from me is another episode in the Fever Freak's Facts of Life (abridged version).Fact #1: Mac went from pinky to badassyGood girl.Fact #2: JZBDo I really need to explain this again? You're joking right?! I thought so. Fact #3: Voice lessonsBecause JZB wants to know if Mac had sex with V'Lane. And because hopping is fun.Fact #4: chilling at the beach with V'LaneJust because.Fact #5: mother of all cliffhangers, part IIt's a good thing I already know what happens next.I rest my case. Until next time.***********Original review (November 2014)MacHalo buddy read starting November, 17 2014.This book was a DNF waiting to happen. Yes, you read that right, I almost DNFed Jericho Freaking Barrons. Silly little me.When I finished reading Bloodfever I couldn't get my hands on Faefever fast enough. I had to wait for a few days before I could read it and it was pure torture. So here I am, giddy with excitement as I start reading. The prologue was pretty good: I could have done without the recap about the previous books but I always enjoy Mac's narrative in the prologues for this series (she comes across as a much stronger character than she actually is - more on that later). The first chapter picks up right where Bloodfever ended: with Mac on a Dublin street, after an unexpected encounter with the Sinsar Dubh. I have to say that, as first scenes go, this one was pretty phenomenal. It drew me right back into the story and led me into thinking I was in for some more Fever awesomeness. I was wrong. Things went downhill from there.The problem? Mac. I found her annoying in book 1 but by the end of book 2 I thought she was getting better and finally losing the silly Ms Pinky 'I was a spoiled child' Rainbows act. 3% into Faefever she was already annoying the hell out of me: Being stupid and superficial {Where the hell is Barrons?! }, saying silly (when not downright ridiculous) things. What bothered me most {Where the hell is Barrons?! }? Her constant blabbering to herself. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. She just wouldn't stop. {Where the hell is Barrons?! } And in the meantime, NOTHING happened. It was just Mac and her stupid inner commentary. By 13% I'd had just about enough of the general silliness. {Oh look, here's Barrons! Yay! Wait, wait, where do you think you're going?! Come back this minute! Don't you dare leave me alone with that silly girl!} At 18% Mac referred to herself as "ruthless" and I thought I was going to choke on my tea. Ruthless? Mac? What a joke! Come on, my neighbour's bunny is more ruthless than she is! But I digress. So here we were, Faefever and I, on the road to disaster. And it was killing me because I SO wanted to like this book! The repetitions didn't help as KMM felt the need to re-hash some things over and over again. The only highlights here: Barrons, V'Lane and Christian. Thank you gentlemen for saving the day, I probably wouldn't have made it this far were it not for you. [Incidentally, I am now planning to move to Dublin as it seems hot, dreamy, drop-dead gorgeous guys seem to be roaming the streets of the city. Sorry, I digress again] As I reached the 25% mark I was boiling up inside ("stupid stupid stupid stupid") and eye-rolling way too much for my own good. I just put the book down as I couldn't take it anymore and decided to momentarily give up on it. Here I have to thank my most awesomest Fever Freaks for their support because without them I would have probably DNFed the book. They kept telling me it would get better and that the rest of the series was absolutely mind-blowing so, after staying away from the book for a day, I decided to pick it up again. And guess what? HALLELUJAH, I see the light at the end of the tunnel!!! All it took was a dead body and suddenly Mac put some sense back into her little self!! A miracle I tell you!! After that it was pretty much boom bam bang, scene after scene of pure awesomess!!! I don't want anyone to hate me here so I think I'll just spoiler tag this whole paragraph. (view spoiler)[JZB. The Viper. The V'Lane summoning trick (he can put that thing on my tongue whenever he wants). Sifting inside the abbey with V'Lane. Queen Bitch Rowena. Barrons being positively ancient. The infamous MacHalo (Barrons laughing. Me dying). Voice lessons ("hey Barrons, willing victim here!"). Barrons & Mac's conversation on the bike. Barrons, V'Lane and Mac on the street. Mac & V'Lane beach hopping. Fiona the Bitch is back, yay! The Orb. The Walls. The Unseelie taking over Dublin. The church. (hide spoiler)]"Monsters and mayhem and massages, oh my."And here we come to the shocker/cliffhanger ending. I have to admit that part of it I saw coming. What with that conversation about (view spoiler)[rape during one of the Voice sessions: "Rape isn't something you walk away from. You crawl." (hide spoiler)] I could feel something really fishy was coming. Apparently some readers found the church scene particularly shocking while others gave up on the series because of it. I can't say it shocked me. It was horrible but I think KMM did a pretty fantastic job of it all. And you know what, I'm not that worried about Mac. Well she'll obviously be broken (I think) but the fact that she (view spoiler)[ate Unseelie (hide spoiler)] before it happened will obviously change the rules of the game. We'll see.So Mac and I are on the way to reconciliation. We're not great friends yet and I still don't think she kicks that much ass but I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt. I used to like V'Lane more than Barrons but I now find myself trusting dear old Jericho more. He is still an ass but I don't think he's that evil. I might very well be wrong though. Who knows what the Constant Jackass will be up to next?So there you have it my peeps, this was lesson #1 in "how to get from almost-DNF to 4 star rating faster than the speed of light."["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

We emerge victorious, tempered by our trials, or fractured by a permanent, damning fault line.We stand strong, we fight our demons and we face our enemies bravely. We put on a strong face and we fight our ass off. By darkness consumes and surrounds. Allies fail you and willpower is not enough. The strongest bent and the weak break, when dealing with our worst nightmares, doomed in hell.A ruthless partner,a seductive prince,an evil mastermind.3 men with deadly secrets and in the middle of them all, a woman that has reached her break-point.Sinsar Dubh paves his bloody way in a city doomed to fall. Unseelie walk freely among the humans and the sidhe-seers cower behind the fears of a stubborn High Mistress. When darkness falls, who will make a stand and help the city live to see another day?Mac seems to be the only one determined to make a stand. Her lessons with Barrons, the memory of her sister, the reluctant answers from V'lane and the budding sisterhood with Dani, a fellow teenager sidhe-seer, seem to give her the strength she needs. With her usual flair and optimism, this rainbow girl, can survive anything. Won't she?Secrets upon secrets, suspicion, fear and some answers that will born more questions, an accidental tragedy and the worst fate a woman can wish, will bring Mac on the fringe of sanity and by the end destroy her.THIS ENDING... HOLY FREAKING HELL!Utterly heartbreaking, dream-crashing and soul-punching (I just come up with words because english fail me when I am upset..) the ending was every nightmare come true. Repulsive and disturbing, I couldn't tear my eyes away and pray for Mac's soul... HELL! How is someone surviving this kind of cliffhanger??I hang on the promise of light and happiness... barely. Mac, is a part of me now. The series is like reading someone's journal, witnessing their wins and losses, inner-struggles and emotions. I am in love with Barrons (come on Mac freaking admit it!), in lust with V'lane (no stones sisters... my reproductive organs are functional and appreciate a gorgeous male specimen) and best friends with Dani (I feel ya girl, I wouldn't know where to give my virginity either with these too...). Amazing, highly emotional, dark and nail-biting I can't recommend this series enough.On to the next, IMMEDIATELY!

    5 THIS-SERIES-IS-MY-COMFORT-ZONE-STARS!!!!!!!What is the greater good but tyranny’s chameleon?This series is the perfect escape, and I love every single second. The Sinsar Dubh:This book continues from Bloodfever. Mac continues her search to find her sister’s murderer and seek revenge. She begins to find more people who can provide her with resources, yet she is still very much alone in her battle. We still don’t know much about Barrons. There are tiny hints here and there, but they only seem to add more questions.My Jericho Barrons:Barrons was powerful, broodingly good-looking, insanely wealthy, frighteningly intelligent, and had exquisite taste, not to mention a hard body that emitted some kind of constant low-level charge. Bottom line: He was the stuff of heroes. Chiseled from savagery by a sculptor-savant, Barrons is a throwback to a lawless time, and looks as stoically primitive as he behaves.My Mac:“Such naked pain,” he whispered.I wake up feeling bruised, coated with bad dream residue that clings to me all day.I had to find a picture of the pi cake because I loved this part!I want Barrons to Voice ME…. So hot!!!That ending wrecked me!!!By the time I finished this review, I had already read Dreamfever, so I’m off to read Shadowfever now!!!!

    Re-read: 2014This is the Fever book where shit gets all crazy.The walls are coming down, bitches!It's also the one where KMM dumps you at the end with a horrifying cliffhanger. In fact, the only cliffhanger that's worse than this one is the one in the next book, Dreamfever.Mac isn't a little whiny bitch anymore, Barrons is starting to show signs of cracking (in the sexy way!), Inspector Jayne gets hooked on Unseelie, Rowena shows her ass in spectacular fashion, and (unfortunately) Dani is the voice of a few of the chapters in this one.But that's ok, because...Barrons.Totally stole this image from Sh3lly's review! This was a great book to end this year on.And if you haven't jumped on the Fever bandwagon, you don't know what you're missing!Original Review: 2009Oh my God! This series is definitely a must-read! I can't believe the ending on this one! I can't believe how much I'm freaking out right now! I can't believe how many exclaimation points I just used! (Deep Breath) Read these books...they're good.

    4.5 starsWell the first part of the fecking book was slow enough. Not enough fecking Barrons. But once I got to fecking 80% it took off like a tornado. Holy Crap, me heart was fecking beating out of me chest.Well, they say, good things will come to those who wait Who the fcuk are “they” and how the hell do they know….Yes, I was waiting, waiting and more waiting for some sex scenes…. Not happening.I was lying on the ground, beneath Barron’s wild, electric body, ripping his shirt open, and splaying my hands over the hard, muscled abdomen tattooed black and crimson in intricate, alien designs. Smelling him all around me. Feeling like he was inside me, or I was inside him. Wondering how much more inside him I’d get if I let him inside me.Still NO SEX, nada, nowt, niets!!!V’lane …Struggled a bit but was TOLD that it would be worth the wait.“Barrons was powerful, broodingly good-looking, insanely wealthy, frighteningly intelligent, and had exquisite taste, not to mention a hard body that emitted some kind of constant low-level charge. Bottom line: He was the stuff of heroes.And psychotic killers.”V’lane and Mac visit the Abbey. She feels the Sinsar Dubh book is close but it keeps evading her.“Nobody looks good in their darkest hours. But it's those hours that make us what we are.”Off to start

    4.5 fever-frenzy StarsOctober 29 ( 2 days to go)Dear Diary Hey There, I feel like I’m coming undone, like the fabric of my existence unwound. How melodramatic of me, you might think, but you should try having your whole world explode in your face; turning everything that’s real into a lie and everything that cannot be real into the truth, and then tell me how to deal with it. I used to be a rainbow girl, a sunshine girl. Now I don’t even recognise myself most days. Within me is a darkness, a creature so primitive that it terrifies me. And it’s INSIDE me! How am I, a sunshine girl from Georgia, supposed to deal with that? Barrons says that it’s our fears that get us killed… but how am I supposed to not be afraid? How? I have no family, no friends and my employer, the enigmatic Barrons, isn’t someone I can trust. Everyone is lying to me, trying to play me for their own purposes. There’s no one I can talk to about how this animal inside me makes me feel. What it’s like to crave a pound of Unseelie flesh, in more ways than one. Who even am I? I want to wake up and discover that this fae congested world is just a frogging dream, but it isn’t. I wake up most mornings with a cold inside me that runs so deeply I’m afraid I may never get warm. Alina wouldn’t even recognise the person I am now, that may be the worst part. I can handle the fae, I can handle the employer who is absentee at best but losing Alina: that is a reality that haunts me every day. Worse is the truths in the lies and the lies in the truths, my life has become a fog of moves and counter moves. Speaking of lies, how long can I lie to myself about Barrons? Barrons, the life-saver and liar… I wonder how many pros and cons lists Alina made about LM? Have I become just another pawn on a chess board of bad or even worse? Who am I? Am I the girl at the pool or am I the girl with spear? Can I even dream of being both?There is a war coming, I can feel it in my bones. Will I be ready? I have to be ready because there is a difference between who you are and who you have to be to survive… I have to be ready! Everyone knows you either become what you need to be or you become dead, I’ve made my choice. Fae or unknown, if I have an out I’ll take it.Welcome to hell!

    ***Be warned that this is the 3rd book of a planned 5 book series. So this takes us about halfway through events. It ends on a cliffhanger, but I still loved it!Holy [email protected]%! I just finished "Faefever" by Karen Marie Moning and I'm not sure whether I want to kiss her or kill her. Her writing is lucid, smart, fantastic, and yet somehow believable. If you're a fan of Moning's 'Highlander' series and are looking for more of that...then you need to pass on by. If you're looking for a story so gritty, scary, and yet real and addictive...then go RIGHT NOW and pick up all three books in this series. You won't be sorry.Mac is torn in so many different directions in this book, it's almost painful to read. None of the decisions she must make are easy, yet every one will have titanic consequences. She's seemingly being 'courted' by three different males, each of whom wants her for her ability to sense Hallows. In "Faefever, she finds out a little bit more about each of them. There's V'lane, the death-by-sex fae who claims to want 'the Book' for his Queen to keep the walls between the worlds strong. There's the Lord Master, Mac's sister's old lover and ultimately killer, who needs the book to dissolve the walls but will keep Mac and her family safe and restore her dead sister to her with help from 'the Book'. Then there's Jericho Barrons. Every time Mac thinks she has him pegged, she discovers how little she really knows or understands him. Yet her attraction to him is always there. In Faefever, Mac finally spends some time with Christian MacKeltar--a Druid from a pretty impressive family lineage of Druids who battle to protect humanity by preserving the 'Compact' with the Fae Queen.But in the end, it all comes down to Mac. She's the only one alive who can sense the object/s they all want. Her actions affect not just herself and other Sidhe-seers but ultimately all humanity. The real issue is: Who can Mac trust? Or maybe more accurately: Can she trust any of them?I absolutely devoured this book. Didn't eat, didn't take a break (but did have to go to the bathroom once)! Now I'm strung out and strung up. I want to know...need to know what happens next. All I can do is wait for "Dreamfever" which is currently awaiting a release date but will likely be at least 9 months from now :(

    Hope strengthens. Fear kills.Yes, hope does, in fact, strengthen. The hope that Barrons will save Mac’s ass (pun not intended) from this fecking ending!My exact reactions:*pause**blink**read paragraph again**blink**pause*First thing’s first. This is the second time I read Faefever. Some things get better, now that I know what’s going to happen in the next book. Some things don’t really change, aka the ending. It was cruel the first time, and it’s still cruel the second time I went through it.I just love how each book changes. We start with a kind of cute Darkfever, then notice that the pink gradient gets a bit darker reaching Bloodvefer and then even darker with Faefever. I love it.I love darkness. I love pain. I love seeing a Mac in her toughest hours. See her suffer and toughen up. I like to see how life tests her limits and how she becomes someone else. Someone better. Someone stronger. A symbol for a genre. Mac is, in my opinion, one of the symbols of kick ass female leads in the urban fantasy genre.I think that Faefever is the best book in the Fever series so far, and trust me (I’m a doctor) the next books will be even better. Don’t get all scared and give up the series just because the ending was hard (heh). Three times hard. Or was it four? I can’t help myself. I have to let it out.*clears throat*Yeah. In Dreamfever, you’ll get a nice little treat to make up for this perversion. A VERY VERY nice treat. You’ll see. *winks*P.S. Barrons, you disappointed me in this book. You behaved like a total jackass and half of my admiration for you flew out the window. Using the Voice on Mac like that, pulling her hair, ruining the cake. You deserve a kick in the balls.P.P.S. V’laneP.P.P.S. Here’s an old “comic” I did for my old Faefever review.My reviews for the other Fever books:Darkfever (Fever #1)Bloodfever (Fever #2)Dreamfever (Fever #4)Shadowfever (Fever #5)

    There are only four authors whose publication dates I follow religiously. And ever since the Harry Potter series ended and Anita Blake turned into a creepy sort of person I’d be disinterested in meeting if she were real, there are only two of them whose publication dates I follow religiously so I can actually be at the bookstore the moment it opens on release day to buy my copy. Karen Marie Moning is one of them. I was introduced to her Highlander series a couple years ago and fell passionately in love with the characters and their happily-ever-after endings (not to mention the heart-pounding love scenes!) Her writing style is easy to read and a perfect mix of intelligence and comfortable colloquialism that makes it easy to approach without being full of typos and awkwardly structured sentences. I say that Karen Marie Moning is a romance author for the people who want some decent plot with their sex! Mix in some gorgeous men in kilts and an element of fantasy (time travel, druids, Fae Princes, some Berserkers, whatever) and you’re good to go.All that being said, her Fever series is completely different. Faefever is the third in the series and I would strongly advise you NOT read out of order (Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever). Each subsequent installment of the series is closely tied in to the one before it and without that foundation, it would be very confusing. I would also categorize the first three books in this series as more “urban fantasy” than “paranormal romance” so if you need a happy ending, these dark books might leave you feeling unfulfilled, at least for now. The main character, MacKayla Lane, is a ditzy southern belle who is forced to grow up fast. After her sister is brutally murdered while studying abroad, MacKayla (Mac for short) travels to Ireland to identify her sister’s body and get some more information. She is unwittingly sucked into an unbelievably crazy subworld of Celtic myth that includes bad fairies, druids, dark hallows, evil plots, mystery and unfulfilled sexual desires with men of indeterminate scruples. Moning’s fans have quickly learned that the author has the ability to write some unbelievably compelling cliffhangers and this installment was no different.The things I especially liked about this particular book:--Christian MacKelter (mmm, young druid man, I hope to see him get his own book in the Highlander series. I wouldn’t mind seeing V’lane go the way of Adam Black and get his own either but that might be a stretch!)--the MacHalo (Mac made Barrons laugh, yay! Wow, total fangirl moment there.)--V’lane dressing Mac in sleazy bikinis (hilarious, I could totally picture it)--learning more about the Lord Master--more clues about who/what Barrons is (dun, dun, dun!)The ending killed me *sad face* and I’m OMGCAN’TWAIT for the next book and desperately wish I hadn’t discovered the series until all five had been published. So yes, my one recommendation would be that if you haven’t started this series yet but think it sounds interesting, wait until they’ve all been published unless you like being made mad crazy over a book.

    W. T. Ever. Loving. Holy. F.I mean... Bloody hell!That ending!?!?Holy smokin' balls... I'm speechless. I am unbelievably happy that I have book #4 ready to go. I would be so pissed right now if I didn't have access to the next book in this series immediately. This installment really kicked up this series for me. Mac is finally coming into her own and I'm loving that evolution. Barrons is still an alpha-hole mystery. (And I love that.) The tension between the two of them is so thick you can barely breathe at times. Seriously... I was actually holding my breath during one of their interactions. Though I think I know where Barrons mystery identity is going, I'm not ruling anything out at this point... I mean, the whole world was just turned upside down. Fantastic read... immediately on to the next one!

    4.5 Stars There is so much going is this third book of the series that a full recap would be impossible. This installment was action packed and once again added a few more players to the chess board. "Where do your loyalties lie, Ms. Lane?"The book’s true identity has been revealed, Barrons is still elusive about who and what he is, the hot prince is still gifting beach time with hot bikinis, Mac makes friends with the police as well as Dani and others like her. LM establishes contact. All the while the walls are crumbling between the worlds leaving Dublin in further danger and that ending…”I think she’ll obey me now, he murmured. Obey him?I’d die for him.”I’m diving into the next book because I need answers. I'm putting on my MacHalo and packing extra batteries. Wish me luck!

    Nov 10 2013 editAfter my re-read I'm upping my rating to 4.5 stars. So many things are foreshadowed and I think the 2 main reasons I had for a lower rating were that 1 Barrons and Mac didn't seem to have as much time together and I got a little focused on that since I really wanted more for their relationship and I needed to know who/what Barrons was and got no real answers this book. The second reason was probably that cliffy of an ending sometimes it is really hard to read about (view spoiler)[Rape (hide spoiler)] no matter how well that author writes it and KMM did a fantastic job sometimes it is too much for me to handle the first time and I get all icky inside. On the re-read I didn't rush through Mac's time with V'lane while he was explaining about the Unsealie King, Queen and Faery. I took my time and really enjoyed the history he was telling Mac. I also enjoyed Mac's time with Christian and the other players on the board.I missed the subtle ways that parts of Mac's and Barrons relationship changed. He has become more possessive and protective of her in ways but still seems to try and give her space to become the woman she is supposed to be without smothering her. He offered to go with her to the Abby to see Rowena and the girls. He could tell someone died at his store but she said she didn't need him so he gave her space. He also followed her and went to where she was and sat outside just in case but for an Alpha male that concession is huge. Another big relationship moment came when Barron's felt betrayed by Mac and used Voice to find out everything she had been up to with the book. When he asked questions about V'lane you could tell how jealous he was and even though they never say it how much he wants her but is restraining himself.When I finished the book this time it didn't shock me as much and I really read through the scene and I think I better understand what the author was trying to portray in the story. All the events that lead up to the ending were executed phenomenally. Having already read books 4 and 5 I was able to pick out a few other details that hit me in the head like wow I should have really seen that coming. This series has been even better the second time through. I don't think I can say that for many series I've read. Miss KMM has definitely woven a very complicated and intricate skein and I'm loving every detail.1st read review3.5 Stars. The Fever series is becoming one of my favorites and this third installment is no exception to that. Faefever picks up right where we left Mac after she has glimpsed the book and how it is moving around. Wow let me just say I really didn't see that coming it was incredibly dark and well thought out. Mac is still trying to figure out who is on who's team. It is a struggle to figure out what is going on and who to trust. “You can’t change an unpleasant reality if you won’t acknowledge it, Mac. You can only control what you’re willing to face. Truth hurts. But lies can kill.” While the middle got a little repetitive for my taste and slowed down quite a bit the beginning and end were so good. I just missed Barrons and the banter for a lot of the book. Mac was distracted by the police still suspecting her of murder, Dani who is completely adorable and the other sidhe-seers and Christian Mackelter who is trying to help Mac is well. Of coarse the LM is still after Mac and V'lane keeps showing up trying to persuade Mac too. Everyone seems to want a piece of her.Mac has strong dark feelings for Barrons and since he doesn't particularly seem like the hero she isn't sure what to do with them. “I didn’t hear him behind me. I felt him. Electric. Wild. One foot in the swamp. Never going to crawl all the way out.And I wanted to have sex with whatever he was. Where was I supposed to put that in my head?” There are still some great moments between Barrons and Mac. Also a lot of new information about the Fae comes out as the world building continues. The back-story is very intriguing and have enjoyed learning about this different world.The ending was such a huge cliffhanger and so dark that it left me panicked and wanting to jump headfirst into the next book. Miss Moning really dealt me a heavy blow and I pained for Mac.This wasn't the strongest book in the series for me but it definitely had some great action and the ending was phenomenal. I can't wait to discover what comes next.

    4.5“Nobody looks good in their darkest hours. But it's those hours that make us what we are.” Based on a re-read.Out of the first four, this one was probably my favorite plot-wise. It would have been a five star rating if it weren’t for Mac’s trust issues starting to annoy me. I can get it though, since the other characters like Barrons and V’Lane are frustrating with their secrecy and duplicity. I wouldn’t fully trust them either, but sometimes I still wanted to shake her. She’s learned to stand on her own two feet and that her survival depends on getting stronger and not accepting any weaknesses in herself. While there are secrets being kept against her, I can’t fault some of the other characters for not trusting her yet more either, since she’s playing so many angles and sides that it could compromise everything.Like the first two books, this focuses on the progression of the overall story but still holds a lot of punches back. It’s slow moving to solve the big mystery but there are so many fascinating tidbits along the way that I didn’t care much. So much still by this point I don’t know and wonder about, but that kept me glued.You finally get a little more on the personal relationship with Barrons as well, even though he is still being frustrating at times. The MacHalo scene is one of the funniest in the history of the series. The Birthday Cake a turning point? We finally get resolution of a sort with a certain OOP. There's a lot more V'lane in this one than previous books but I find the fae less likable with this re-read. You see a condescending attitude and annoying disregard for life. Dani actually isn't that annoying right now, but Rowena is still reigning as queen Biotch.The shades have always been one of the creepiest things in the series, and they definitely get front-seat horrific action with this one. We finally see answers on how Barrons gets away with certain persuasions (such as Mac's father last book).The ending is a twisted, heart-wrenching cliffhanger that shows it definitely gets darker before the dawn.

    31st of October.This book has the best and the most unforgettable birthday party. It is Halloween day and it is Barron’s birthday.Mac appears to the bookstore with a big pink cake just for him.Surprise!Will he be happy and feel touched because someone remembered his birthday? I don’t think so…Barrons does not like birthdays. He does not celebrate birthdays. He does not like surprises. He does not like big pink cakes."Never do that again, Ms. Lane. Do not insult me with your silly rituals, and idiotic platitudes. Never try to humanize me. Don't think we're the same, you and I. We're not."This All Hallows’ Eve will be memorable for the city of Dublin and for Earth in general.The walls between worlds are shattered and Mac loses herself.The book finishes with an epic cliffhanger and a seriously heartbreaking climax.Where the hell was Barrons to save Mac? Where was V’lane?Faefever is NOT a fairytale. It will bite you in the ass.

    **4.5 Stay to the Lights stars**Three powerful and dangerous men need Mac:†Barrons†V’lane†Lord MasterAll three of these men want the same thing; Sinsar Dubh. Mac is the MVP because she can feel, hunt, and find the Sinsar Dubh. Her value to them is irreplaceable so they keep her alive as she searches for the one thing they all want. I'm still plagued with this question-> What the feck is Jericho Barrons?? Mac ask V’lane, "What is Barrons? Human, or something else?” Of course, V’lane never answered. A new character is introduced in this book; Dani. I agree with Mac that ‘I like Dani.’ She’s one tough teenager and I look forward to her books (#6-8). SERIES:Book 1 - 5 MacKayla & Barrons | Book 6 - 8 Dani | Book 9 - 10 MacKayla & Barrons Book 6 - 8 is a spin-off trilogy within the Fever series.
