Faefever - Karen Marie Moning 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 really enjoyed the first two books in the Fever series, I couldn't wait to get the next one but had to pace myself due to University obligations coming first.

Wow! That's all I could think when I finally finished FaeFever. I closed the book and had to go and make several cups of tea before I could really think about what I'd read. FaeFever continues on with Mac's journey, which I really enjoyed. The first half of the book I found rather slow and kept wishing it would pick up speed and have more action and adventure to it other than just Mac's thoughts and feelings on everything so far, it felt a little like BloodFever with all the back story and not really moving any where for a while. But eventually it all picked up! The usual character's V'lane and Barrons made their appearances and the reader starts to get small amounts of information on Barrons and more on V'lane which was nice and annoying, because you just want more! We meet more Sidhe-seers, there's more Christian MacKeltar and Mac time, (I really wanted Mac to get with him even if it was only briefly!) As FaeFever goes on you do feel for Mac, in a strange place, dealing with some much, she never seems to get a break and is always being pulled in different directions not really knowing who to trust and partner up with. If it wasn't for the second half of Faefever I wouldn't have given the book 5 stars it would have got 4 or even 3 but the second half more than makes up for the uneventful first half.

Favourite Quotes:
"Barrons' lips twitched. I'd almost made him smile. Barrons smiles about as often as the sun comes out in Dublin, and it has the same effect on me; makes me feel warm and stupid."

"Evil is supposed to adhere to certain conventions. It's supposed to cause a chill of foreboding in the intended recipient of its visit; it should be instantly recognizable; and it's supposed to be hideous. Evil should glide out of the night out of the night in a black hearse, fog streaming from its dark flanks, or dismount from a skeletal Harley, leather-clad, wearing a necklace of freshly scalped skulls and cross bones."

"Deep down, I just wanted to go back to being the girl I used to be. I would trespass into darker territories only if my survival depended on it."

"Well played, Ms Lane."
"I had a good teacher."
"The best. Hop on one foot, Ms Lane."
Voice lessons had begun.
I had a feeling they might be brutal tonight.'

The book cover's ok it's pretty simple and I like that but it's not really eye catching and drawing you in, which I think it should be because it's a great series!

Overall FaeFever still leaves the reader with a million thoughts and questions buzzing around but it does move the story forward some what and I thoroughly enjoyed it and if you haven't read this series yet, do so!
