I want to give this book a 3.5 stars, because I liked it, but didn't "really" liked it... I have mixed feelings for this book. On the one hand, I thought it continued from the last book (Darkfever) quite nicely and that I could see some character development there... Mac was finally "growing up" a bit and acting less like her former girly girly self. Barrons was still a mystery (and a jerk) for the most part, but at least he seemed to have improved his attitude towards Mac and there was finally some clear indication that he might even feel something for her. There wasn't a lot of V'lane in this book, but at least he didn't creep me out here - he even tried to act more human. However, on the other hand, there were some parts that still drove me crazy!!!! Like, if you were to see a robed figure/spector following you in darkness, seemingly observing you, wouldn't at least tell someone (like Barrons) and have it dealt with? Sheesh, at times I felt like I wanted to strangle Mac for her stupidity and not learning from her lessons that she was living in a world that cannot be judged by normal means and that there was aways more to than what just meets the eyes... and I must say, I had a gut feeling that something bad was going to happen because of this and I was right!!!

From an action perspective, this book was definitely an improvement from Darkfever. New characters were introduced, but they left more questions for readers than answers. I suppose the author did all this to setup the premise for the next book(s).

Anyway, I'm going to start the next book after this. I hope there will be a bit more relationship development between Mac and Barrons, because I could see that going somewhere...

I agree with this review of the book, totally. You put it in great words, because honestly when you see the full progression of Mac you see that in Bloodfever she's still so totally in denial, and I think unconsciously she's doing things and acting in a way that she thinks it will all just go away. At the end of faefever leading into dreamfever there is a lot of waking up for her. I'm glad you are continuing =)
