Dreamfever  - Karen Marie Moning When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the insatiable, immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, MacKayla Lane is caught in a deadly trap. Captured by the Fae Lord Master, she is left with no memory of who or what she is. The only sidhe-seer alive who can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of arcane black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds. Clawing her way back from oblivion is only the first step Mac must take down a perilous path, from the battle filled streets of Dublin to the treacherous politics of an ancient, secret sect, through the tangled lies of men who claim to be her allies into the illusory world of the Fae themselves, where nothing is as it seems, and Mac is forced to face a soul shattering truth.

I'm still enjoying the series and am excited to see where it will go and how things with Mac would turn out so I couldn't help myself but buy DreamFever.

After FaeFever finished on such an ending I was dying to read DreamFever and find out what would happen to Mac and how she would cope with her new situation. In some ways I was quite sad that Barrons had to save Mac again but in other ways there was no way she was able to save herself after what happened to her and it was nice to see a different side of Barrons even if it was just for a short period of time. The way he was with Mac during the first part of DreamFever made me wonder more about Barrons, and how he really saw his relationship with Mac as something else. Even though he'd been crude with her in the past it showed that the relationship was more than just sex and more than just about the Fae and the circumstances that they were dealing with and in some ways that made me warm up to Barrons a little more.
I really enjoyed more of the relationship between Dani and Mac in DreamFever than the previous books as it showed more how much Mac valued her friendship with Dani and how Dani is with Mac is really very sweet. They have become each others new family in a way and its nice to see Mac have this after everything that she's been through.
I really enjoyed the antagonism between Barrons and V'lane (I don't like V'lane!). In one scene V'lane rearranges the furniture hoping this will stop Barrons from trying to get to him if he decides to go for him, which by now we all know is pointless, if Barrons wants to go for V'lane nothing would stop him (except, maybe Mac?).
At certain parts of DreamFever the book (as in the Sinsar Dubh) really freaked me out but I really enjoyed it because it was a different pace to other parts of the story and gave it an eerie feel. I was also pleased to see the Sinsar Dubh in a different way, that it was more than what we all really thought it to be.
There are a million things more that happened in DreamFever that I haven't really mentioned but I don't want to ruin it. DreamFever was everything I wanted it to be and more. DreamFever went back to the level of the first book DarkFever for me and made me love the series even more!

Favourite Quotes:
"Most of what I believed about myself, and life, I derived from modern media, without questioning any of it. If I wasn't sure how to behave in a certain situation, I'd search my mind for a movie or TV show I'd seen, with a similar set-up, and do whatever the actor's had done. A sponge, I absorbed my environment, became a by- product of it."

"They can't break me. I won't cease. I'm strong. And I am never going to go away until I've gotten what I came for.
I might have been lost for a while but I was never gone.
Who the fuck are you?
With an explosive inhalation, I snap upright in bed, and my eyes fly open - like coming alive after being dead and interred in a coffin.
I am Mac.
And I'm back."

Overall, I loved DreamFever. It gave me everything I wanted that was missing in the second and third books. I'm really loving and enjoying the Fever series and am slightly sad that there's only one book left in the series but also slightly pleased to have some answers.
