I met the MacKeltars in the Fever series and was excited to get more story on them.
I love that Gwen and Drustan were equals, and how this heroine was more trusting of the hero than Mac was of Barrons in the Fever series. This was a light and quick read. I wish we learned more about Druidry and their relationship with the fae, but the romance plot line was complete.
It did end leaving us wondering about his brother, so I'll have to read the next book to learn his story. I actually didn't see the solution to their problem beforehand even tho it was pretty obvious. It was well written and, even tho I knew they would get their HEA, I was worried about them not finding each other....more

My aunt recommended this to me, and she seemed to like this series. However, I never grew fond of the characters and they just annoyed me most of the time. The plot did not draw me in either. It's been 4 months since I last picked up this book and I actually forgot about it til now when I saw it on my currently reading list. This just isn't going to be finished any time in the forseeable future, so I'm officially marking it DNF....more

If the book wasn't 600 pages, I would've read it in 1-2 sittings. It took me a few days to finish and the second half went quicker than the first. Mac does so much growing up in this novel. She finally accepts things and learns to trust. Barrons grows too and becomes more open, tho mostly because Mac forces herself into his private life. She finally gives back, however, and lets Barrons in while ceasing all the secrecy all the time. They learn to trust.
There's still more I'd like to know about Barrons, like how he came to be what he is exactly. I'm happy with how the book ended. Major mysteries were solved. Don't believe every answer the author gives you throughout the story. She lets us have the truth as Mac sees it at that point in time, but its often not the whole story. I was going crazy trying to untangle everything ahead of time. I didn't see the big reveal before I read it. I did, however, come up with the solution to Barrons problem before Mac did, but just barely.
I'm overall very content with this ending and curious about Dani's story.
Damn cliffhangers. At least this one didn't end as abruptly as the last novel. I'm so glad I waited to read this series and that I don't have to waitDamn cliffhangers. At least this one didn't end as abruptly as the last novel. I'm so glad I waited to read this series and that I don't have to wait for the next book. Dreamfever has been my favorite so far. We open to a completely broken Mac, but she overcomes this and becomes one tough woman. She doesn't hide anymore. She's more honest with herself. She has finally started choosing, instead of putting decisions off. More importantly, she finally chooses between V'lane and Barrons, tho its obvious she still wants both in her life. I wasn't as frustrated with her in this book than the others. I actually like her. She has grown on me and grown as a warrior. Her world has toughened her.
I can't believe it ended like that. I'm so glad the next books are already out and I don't have to wait.
Mac still has trust issues. SheI can't believe it ended like that. I'm so glad the next books are already out and I don't have to wait.
Mac still has trust issues. She doesn't run from her problems as much tho. She's learning to face her fears and make better decisions even if some of them left me cringing. Now she needs to overcome her addictions, so while she has made progress and character growth over some aspects, she took a step back with others. If she hadn't done what she did, she might've been able to run at the end. When she finds out about the Sinsar-Dubh, she keeps it to herself and doesn't take any action. She just sits on that knowledge and doesn't even try to find out how to contain the damn book and withholds that info from people who could do something about it. I was screaming at her to run and tell Barrons, but she decided to use that knowledge as power instead. She craves power in this book, and it drove me nuts when it led to some of her decisions. She kept going back and forth between V'lane and Barrons and never really trusting both. I wished she'd choose a side. I like both "men" and she strung them along while pretending to give them full disclosure, but really keeping everything to herself.
We see some emotional growth from Barrons, but it's fleeting. He does what he thinks is best tho. I wish Mac would trust him.
The pacing was quick and made the book seem shorter than the others. The beginning picks up a few minutes before the last book ended, so theres some repetition. The ending is a huge cliffhanger and felt like a slap in the face when it ended so abruptly. I turned the page, expecting more, but there wasn't any. ...more

I breezed through it in less than a day. It was also darker than the first installment of this series and had a gross twist near the end. It did end on a cliffhanger, so I'm glad I already have the third book and don't have to wait.
Mac has grown some in this novel. She has accepted her adoption and made peace with her father, and she isn't so blinded with grief over her sister's death and has reached a small sense of closer towards it. She is also learning how to use her powers. She still, however, keeps getting into trouble and, for all of her caution, can be too revealing at times. She also hasn't learned to fight. You'd think Barrons would teach her self defense, but other than one scene that had me laughing she hasn't had much experience or instruction.
Barrons continues to be a mystery.
We saw more hints of a romance between the two, but it's slow. They won't give in. I can't wait to see what happens when they do....more

I read this in one day. It had a faster pace than the previous two books. Most threads were concluded from the series, but I still have questions. It was left open for the possibility of more adventures, but no hook ending this time. Everyone gets a happy ending...mostly.
Abby shows some character growth as well. Her love life is still a bit messy, but she has finally conquered her nightmares and faced down her enemies. ...more
