Recommends it for: lovers of prn, romance (slow and sizzling hot), thriller and interesting plot/premises
Don't think, read. I'll tell you how this is going to go: This is going to be a love story between you and a book. Yeah, your going to hurt when it finishes, but remember "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." - A. L. Tennyson.

The only thing I regret is that a book can never be unread, even for the sole purpose of reading it for the first time again.

5th re-read, 2009 pages (the annoying Mega in 'Iced' included), Mac 1.0 and 2.0 to drive me bugfuck all over again, one creepily obsessed partner in crime who wishes to remain anonymous because of embarrassing lusting over paper & ink book character, teaching my auto-correct variations on the theme 'Barrons' (Barronesque, Barrongasming, Barronsdrool, you get the idea).

But now all 2009 pages are over! :/

I guess that means no more peeing in empty apple juice cartons?

Abandon all hope, ye who enter!

Are you thinking, "I'll read on chapter, then weed the garden"? Or "Just the prologue, and then I'll start dinner"? Or maybe something like, "I'll give this ten minutes, and then I'll work on that mountain of homework"?

You might want to weed the garden now. You might want to pop dinner in the oven and put on an extra loud timer, and that homework? Either accept that you will get an ugly ass F or do it now, before you start the Fever series.

You're probably laughing
A few friends recommended this series over and over, so after a recent surgery and long time at home without kids (yes, I am totally enjoying this recovery) I decided to give these a try. The first few pages of the first book "Darkfever" were a little annoying, with all the main character's young adult angst that she distresses about, but then the storyline and the changes she goes through more than make up for that. And I actually think the author, Karen Marie Moning, intended her to sound the ...more

An urban fantasy/chick lit series I actually like! I feel like these books are what Anne Bishop's should have been, and emphatically were not: full of a dark eroticism that didn't make me feel icky for having read it. The basic premise here is that the wall between the human and faery world is crumbling, and a young woman (Mac) just might have the power to stop it...but who is she really, and who is that sexy bookstore owner and what does he want? It's hard to say all the reasons I liked this bo ...more
This book is like Harry Potter meets Fifty Shades. Let me explain. First it’s a great story for my age group, readers in their twenties. So many novels are directed for young adults that it’s hard to relate to the main characters when they are 16 years old. Since it was made for an older age group the romance is steamier, which is why it reminded me of Fifty Shades of Gray. It’s a story that uncovers the mystical world with faeries that live in and disrupt the human world. There are villains and ...more

[Note: I reviewed each book individually, as spoiler-free as I possibly could. This review of the kindle bundle (the edition I actually read) is my review of the series as a whole. Here there be spoilers. You have been warned.]

I have averaged only 2-3 hours of sleep per night all week. Partly because of the nocturnal, tortured, ravening beast that is my teething 7-month-old son, but mostly because of Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Like the Sinsar Dubh, the book of dark magic the series revol

This is my all time favorite series! Jericho Barrons is my number top book beau and MacKayla Lane is one of my favorite heroines. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. They are just that good!
These are my favorite books of ALL time!! This is the 2nd time I've read them. I started Friday night, got a little bit of sleep. I read all day Saturday (hated interruptions like cooking dinner lol), I got 4 hours of sleep that night after being up till 3am. Then I read all day Sunday, didn't make dinner, fed everyone easy stuff, then got only 3 hrs and 40 min's of sleep. Monday, everyone went to school, hubby went to work... I read all day. You can not stop reading this story. My brain is like ...more

Ahhh love is not a strong enough word for my feelings of this series. This is going to be short because I don't want to give anything away. So we are doing this in a list.
~This series always kept you guessing. I hate it when I can guess an ending, I hate predictability. Every time I thought I knew what was going on I was wrong. This kept you on your toes till the end.
~ I loved the characters, I loved to hate some of them.
~I am so depressed that this is over, it took me 4 days to read all of
I did it. I finished it. It was good overall and that's saying a lot for paranormal which I generally don't enjoy. And I liked Barron's but I didn't love Barron's.
Heather Thurmeier
As expected, the second reading was just as good or better than the first. Thanks, KMM, for creating such an awesome series! I will always love Mac and Barrons.
Rita Salazar
Fun fantasy, but she could have condensed it down to 3 books. It got redundant and took a little effort to stay interested by the middle of the 4th book.
I loved this entire series. I loved the way the characters grew emotionally and psychologically. The plot kept me moving forward and at the same time catching me off guard and surprising me in a way that I loved. I loved how we got to see inside Mac's mind and the struggling she had to go through to become the truly strong, courageous, passionate woman in the end. I laughed and I cried with this book. There were places that made my heart raw with the emotional roller coaster that played out in t ...more

Why yes, I did read all five books in the series in a little over a week. Have a problem with it? ;-p

Supernatural urban romance seemed like a good fit for a cold winter week while I was suffering from a virus. I enjoyed it, but I thought the first book and last half of the fifth were the weakest (started a bit bland and ended a bit convoluted). If I would have had to wait for the next book, I would have hated book three. Since I didn't have months to stew about the cliffhanger, only a couple hou
Since my previous book debacle, I have decided to return to my roots and indulge in romance extraordinaire Karen Marie Moning, who always gives me exactly what I need when it comes to hot men and great women. This go round, I picked up the Fever Series, which consist of five books - Dark Fever, Blood Fever, Fae Fever, Dream Fever, and Shadow Fever- and devoured them over the course of a weekend. Oh, I am absolutely gaga over this series. Although it is completely different than her Highlander Se ...more

Iwillbe honest, I haven't "read this book" in the literal sense, but I HAVE read all the books in this series. Same fecking thing. I feel compelled to rate this book because as a whole I would rate this book 10 stars. Five stars just doesn't do it any justice. I wish there were more books out there as good as the fever series but unfortunately Karen Marie mining is one of a kind and there aren't. BEST. BOOK. SERIES. EVER.
Petra Garcia
This series was FECKING AMAZING!
Never will I read a book like this.
The whole time I a had a huh face going on.
I read, read, read, and read some more with out ever thinking "when is this book going to end"
Over all this book was fan-FUCKING-tastic. Cannot wait to read Iced.
But, for the moment I must take a breather. I CANNOT BELIEVE I WAS ROOTING FOR THE WRONG FECKING TEAM!!!!!!!
Love love love these books! Tried to get all my friends to read them but when I mentioned the books were about fairies, they thought they sounded lame. They are the most addicting books I have read lately and I got two friends to read them and they fell in love too! All I have to say is Jericho Barron's!!!! Read these books you won't be sorry!
Amanda Crockett
Really like them! Different from what I've read before!! Still not finished with the last one but I'm excited to see how it ends!
I LOVE this series! A quick disclaimer though...I own and read the books individually but wanted to post a review on my blog that encompassed the whole series.

This is the story of MacKayla "Mac" Lane. Her sister, Alina, has been murdered while studying abroad in Dublin, Ireland. Unable to get satisfactory results over the phone, Mac leaves for Dublin in hopes of finding her sister's murderer.

Once in Dublin Mac starts to discover all is not as it appears. So much so that the wall separating our r

I don't normally put my 'junk food' on goodreads. Because then it starts being less 'selfishly for me' and part of work. Because as much as I enjoy reading, both literary and everything else I can get my hands on, there is also an aspect that is part of 'work' - studying what I do - live and be. (That is the thing about being a story teller, even if you're not very good at it, your brain won't start making them. So even not working is still...stories. Always. And examining how others tell storie ...more
Before starting this review I feel like I need to make an admission: I needed to force myself to write it.

When I started writing these reviews a few months ago I promised myself (and the lovely ladies of B4R who will take away my book privileges if I don’t post a review for the monthly reads **gasp!**) that I’d review every title, in any genre, no matter what my opinion of the read. But after nearly a month of typing something out, deleting everything, starting over (with a disappointed little

Dude. I blew through this series. I got dangled off a cliff at the end of Book 4 and started Book 5 at midnight. And my bedtime is 10 pm. I yearned. I cursed. I combusted. I decided I'd never write another book because I can't plot like Moning can, so why bother? (I know. I know. Grow up. I got over it and decided to be inspired, instead.)

Admittedly, I read Book 1 last year and was not as captivated as I had hoped to be. But Book 2 hooked me, and the rest of them turned me into an addict. It's m

So I first read the sample for Darkfever several months ago and was really intrigued. I read some reviews on amazon and a few scared me off because I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend 7.99 and not like the book. Well, months later I reread the sample and then started reading the positive reviews again. I decided I was going to bite the bullet and I decided to do so by buying the 5 book bundle. Why the whole bundle? Reviews had stated how each book had a horrible cliffhanger. I knew if I loved the fi ...more

I have a hard time giving anything a 5 star review, but I think this one deserves all four and maybe an extra half. I reviewed the first book in the series and once I started the second book, I couldn't stop reading long enough to write a review for any more until I'd finished the series. I pretty much ignored my husband and toddler and a couple human necessities like eating and sleeping.

What a ride! This series was great. KMM did a fantastic job at creating the world of the fae and expounding
I have read the Fever series four times in a row. It's very difficult to put into words just how much I adore this series. They are unlike any other books I've ever read and are by far my favorite. The story grips you in such a way that you don't want to be let go. And the funny thing is, I never expected to be so enthralled by these books. It is perfection entirely. And despite that it is 'labeled' as a romance series it is truly so much more. But in the end it shouldn't matter what genre it is ...more

Wow, it was just as good the second time round. Five star series all the way from the intricacies of the plot, the immenseness of the world building to the characterisations. Has there ever been a female character who grew into such a worthy heroine as Mac and Jericho Barrons...
I thought the writing was excellent, the world unique, and the plot fantastic. Overall I found the first four books enjoyable, but I hated everything about the last book. The pacing of the series was awful, and especially bad in the last book. The series really should have been three books. It was really aggravating that no major plot points/reveals occurred until the last book, and not until the last 100 pages at that. It was as if the author was scared to let any nuggets of info go. Even after ...more
