I like both very much but End of Days didn't have the same feel to me. Maybe it was the wait?? I don't know. What I didn't like was that all of sudden Penyrn is thinking Raph is the enemy. Didn't we do this in Angelfall?? I mean you did just makeout with each other. What else I didn't like was we are still left with some questions. I for one would have like to know how Penyrn's mom crippled her daughter. Some more question would be is Gabriel really dead and why were the angels really there and where is Michael and how did Penyrn's mom know so much bout different things? And please tell me why (view spoiler)[ Raph got stuck with the demon wings? (hide spoiler)] For me I feel like Susan Ee tried to give us a neat as a bow ending but it felt rush and incomplete....more

I hope that all the people that were b*tching about Dani and her age and Ryodan are happy because this book was horrible!! You can tell that KMM's heaI hope that all the people that were b*tching about Dani and her age and Ryodan are happy because this book was horrible!! You can tell that KMM's heart was NOT in this at all. This book was a complete COP out All this was was Mac whining about something or talking about having sex with Barrons and the internal dialogue was ridiculous.
Dani??? My favorite character ever was almost a no show. Wasn't this suppose to be her book at first?? WTF happened?? KMM threw Dani away and any relationship building between Ryo and Dani whether it would have remained Batman and Robin or transformed into Captain America and Black Widow. (<--Couldn't think of a strong superhero couple that would fit Ryo and Dani)
I'm not understanding how it took 3 years to write this. I'm not understanding how some fans are giving this book a 5 star rating.
The only thing I can say that I like was learning more about Dani's and Ryo past but it was overshadowed by all the Mac angst. Also, what happens with Dani...(view spoiler)[ I think was a COP OUT. KMM was pressured into aging her and then she turned full of life Dani to lifeless Jada. Really?? Our beloved Dani gets lost in the Hall of Days and thats it. We don't see Dani as Dani for the rest of the book. I don't want to see Dani suffering but if this was how KMM was going to go about it then why not show us what Dani went through?? Show me how long she fought. Show me what delusions she had. Show me that she thought Ryodan was coming for her. Why in the h3ll didn't Mac or Barrons tell anyone that Dani went into the silvers?? In fact Barrons stop Mac from going in to save her. Ryodan would have gone in and not come back til he had Dani and she wouldn't have been in there for five and half years. By the end we have no idea how they plan to get Dani back or if she really is gone for good. I really really hope not!! Dani coming back to 19 or 20 year old body would be absolutely hilarious. (hide spoiler)]
I recommended the original series to my husband because I knew he would find the Nine interesting not because of Mac. I was right and he wanted to know more. I've been begging him to read Iced (since day one) not for the Nine but for Dani because she was so different and refreshing. When I was done with Burned he ask if I was still in love with Dani? I said of course but Dani is gone and Mac is back. He told me he was actually thinking about picking Iced up until I told him that.
Anyways, as of right now I won't be picking up Feverborn
Aug. 8, 2014 New cover and I don't like it. What kinda of message is this sending? Two strong female characters and you put "hunk" on the cover.
Update May 6,2014: Another Mac & Barrons teaser..:(
"You could give your wards to Ryodan and let him host this summit. At Chester's." He slices his head once to the left and I drop it.
I don't ask why. He has his boundaries, I have mine. And boundaries are where you veer off if you value the relationship. You don't grill. You don't probe. Some people think boundaries are a threat. They should be shot. Boundaries cement the foundation of the house people choose to inhabit together. You build it strong or you build a house of cards. I prefer a fortress.
- Update April 15,2014
Mac draws up short to keep from slamming into Barrons and her blonde hair swings back over her shoulder, brushing his face as it goes and my hearing is so good I catch the rasp of it chafing the shadow stubble on his jaw, then one of his hands grazes her breast and his eyes narrow when he looks at what he touched in a hungry way I want a man to look at me like one day and, as they continue to recover from the near-collision, their bodies move in a graceful dance of impeccable awareness of precisely where the other is at all times that is unity, symbiosis, partnership I only dream of, wolves that chose to pack up and hunt together, soldiers who will always have each other’s back no matter what, no sin, no transgression too great, ‘cause don’t we all transgress sometimes and it fecking slays me, because once I got a little taste of what that was like and it was heaven and they’re so beautiful standing there, the best of the best, the strongest of the strong that they practically glow to me, on fire with all I ever wanted in my life—a place to belong and someone to belong there with.
- Update!! April 2,2014
"You will obey me, Ms. Lane. You will not follow her. That is all."
He turns in a ripple of muscle and beautifully tailored Armani and stalks away, leaving me alone with too many questions, too few choices and a hundred-odd Unseelie.
That is all, my ass. I'm my own woman. I'm Death walking. I'm the possibility for Complete and Total World Destruction. I can sure as hell make my own decisions.
BURNED Release Date, Book Launch Party & Ryodan’s Face
There’ve been rumblings lately—I’m beginning to think you guys are psychic, or perhaps like Dani, you’re sleuthing for clues such as my not announcing the date/place for the launch party—about whether BURNED is really coming out July 22nd, 2014.
I’ve got good news and bad news.
The good news: I’m having a blast writing BURNED, similar to how I felt when I was writing SHADOWFEVER, in a semi-fugue state. The characters are alive and on fire, the story is coming out exactly as I’d planned, and with even more intensity than I’d expected. There’s no doubt in my mind you’re going to love it.
The bad news: BURNED’s release date has been pushed back one final time. The new date is January 2015. The precise day is still being decided (right now it’s the 20th but that may change by a week either way) and as soon as we can, we’ll announce the dates and location for the big bash.
More good news: if BURNED had been released July 22, I was not going to be able to do a book launch party. Now I am.
As I’m sure you’ve realized by my not announcing the book launch date, I was concerned it might get moved again. And I’m sure you want to know why.
I took time off.
Why? I needed it. I won’t go into details of my personal life but I will say while I could have kept pushing, short-term gratification doesn’t yield the kind of long term goals I‘m after and sometimes pushing costs more than it yields, so I did what I needed to do: walked away, rested and got recharged.
It wasn’t an easy decision to make. I love to write. I miss the interaction with you guys when I don’t. I get paid when I write. But I will always put the quality of my writing, and of my life over my bank account. I won’t put out a book that doesn’t meet my standards
I’m back and beyond excited to take you deeper into the Fever world in all the ways you want. BURNED is sexier, has more points of view, including one of the Nine (and not just a few snippets) and is all around hotter in every way, as you’d expect from the title.
A final bit of good news: I’ve never given you a good verbal ‘look’ at Ryodan. Many of you have written to tell me that Stuart Reardon (beautiful man and terrific athlete!) is your vision of Ryodan and I’ve promoted him for you, although I’ve always considered him one of my other immortal badasses.
But I’ve never shared my personal vision of the mysterious, sexy owner of Chester's nightclub (where the privileged few get to visit level 4!) because I didn’t feel I could adequately convey what I see when I close my eyes and begin to structure one of his scenes.
Then I stumbled across Anthony James Hill and was stunned to find the match to the face I’ve been seeing in my head for years. Those eyes, that mouth…
This is my Ryodan, photographed by the fabulous Michael Stokes Photography and Gilles Crofta.
Drop by Anthony James Hill's page and welcome him to the Fever World!
As for BURNED, I’m truly sorry I couldn’t bring it to you faster. If I could have, I would. I can only tell you I think you’re going to find it absolutely worth the wait.
--- UPDATE!!! 1/16/2014 Finally a DANI TEASER!!!!!
A man steps out.
Strong. Brilliant. Controlled.
He's everything I admire plus things I can't even put into words.
I crush on Jericho Barrons violently.
My brain almost shuts down every time I see him and that's a lot of gray matter to stupefy.
Used to be, if I couldn't fall asleep I'd fantasize all kinds of ways I'd impress Barrons by killing monsters or saying something really smart or saving the world, and he'd see me as a grown up woman and I'd glow just from the look on his face.
But then Ryodan began popping into my fantasies like he had some kind of business being there, and he'd look all, well...like...Ryodan and he'd laugh and do that husky groan thing he did on level four, so I terminated that happy little exercise in somnolence.
Now I count sheep.
Lately even those buggers look like Ryodan with clear, cold eyes and some weird kind of hypnotic hold on me.
I'm beginning to think I'm going to have to figure out a way to kill him, permanent-like just to get him out of my head.
3.5 Stars for the beginning & 5 stars for the ending
Ooookay!!! So I just finish First Grave on the Right. For me the beginning was slow and I did3.5 Stars for the beginning & 5 stars for the ending
Ooookay!!! So I just finish First Grave on the Right. For me the beginning was slow and I didn't really care about what was going on. Charley grew on me through the book and I loved her snark. Maybe I've gotten used to how my other authors write I don't know but I've gotten used to things being discovered by the end of each chapter. I think things dragged a bit in places but then at the end we finally got some answers about Reyes!! I was literally scared to turn the page right before Charley figured out what he was. If we would have been left not knowing who or what Reyes is or that Charley has more going on than originally thought I wouldn't continue with this story. I'm kinda excited to read the next book and I haven't been excited to read something in a while except for Burned by Karen Marie Moning but I still have 6 months....more
