"He calls me his Queen of the Night.
I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too."


When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magi

SPOILER FREE - HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY REVIEW!



The first book was good. The second book was great. This third book was holyeffinbatmanfreakinamazing!! Sooooo, if my calculations are correct (and if you don't take into account that I'm terrible at math), I'm guessing that just touching the next book in the series should result in a violent, arms-flailing, dance-inspiring joygasm!!!

Mac Version 3.0

I start this book expecting little sweet Barbie Mac.......and this happens.


Someone starts mailing Mac pages from her sister's Alina's journal and that start making her think. Then the two main guys that have been playing her still won't answer any questions. They seem to want to just use her for their own purposes.
Well, Mac starts getting tired of it.


She starts to realize that she is all she has on her side. She must not rely on a man to come save her! Hells yeah. She starts us

I think rereading Faefever gave me an emotional aneurysm. Nothing works anymore.


In book 3 of the Fever series, Mac comes to realize that all the men in her life are trash and she needs to branch out; place some eggs in different baskets, if you will. KMM deepens some of her old characters (Inspector Jayne, Dani, etc) and brings in a few new ones (like Christian MacKeltar, my personal darling). This is all very nice and soothing.

Why did I lose ten years of my life reading this book? Well.

What is there to say about this book that hasn’t already been said? As much as I loved the first two in the series, this is the one that truly hits me every time I read it. It’s like reading book five in Harry Potter. You go from some darkness to a LOT of darkness.

Oh sure, the book starts off safe enough, but by the end of it…madness, chaos, pestilence, famine, war and death.

This is the book that truly gets most readers on Mac’s side. I’ve said before that I was always there, but reading this ta

What a cruel, cruel ending... If I were to wait a year to find out what happens to Mac next, I'd be royally pissed right now, because as much as I liked the book, I think this kind of ending is unacceptable and disrespectful to the series' fans.

Faefever is a very dark book and it starts out dark too. I missed Mac's happy-go-lucky attitude and flirtations with Barrons in previous installments. The only relief from the doom we get in this book comes in the form of MacHalo and Druid Voice lessons.

“Who the fuck are you, Ms. Lane?”
Rage filled me. Rage at what had been done to her. Rage at him for bringing it up. The thought that no one could see or judge me was liberating. I swelled with grief and anger.
“Now tell me who you are.”
“Vengeance,” I said in a cold voice.
There are certain things in my life that remains comfortingly constant despite the chaos that sometimes peppers my life. For instance, the sky is blue. 70% dark chocolate is delicious. I look really good in dark green.

Four times and that ending still gets me! GAH! The only worse cliffhanger is the ending of the next book! But I can't wait for Book 4, Chapter 4! YAS. New thoughts: There are favorite scenes (they all include Barrons), but parts of this made me want to start skimming. I've never been a huge fan of the scenes with Jayne or V'Lane or the other sidhe-seers. I like Da

I can't remember how I felt about the whole book because the end left me hopeless. The first three books were definitely leading up to something bigger. All the events could have been put into one book, so I'm eager to read the 4th with the changes set in motion by this one. I adore all the characters, Mac is so real, and Barron's is just an ass. I hate him but he's such an enigma.

This book continues from Bloodfever. Mac continues her search to find her sister’s murderer and seek revenge. She begins to find more people who can provide her with resources, yet she is still very much alone in her battle. We still don’t know much about Barrons.

This is the Fever book where shit gets all crazy.
The walls are coming down, bitches!
It's also the one where KMM dumps you at the end with a horrifying cliffhanger. In fact, the only cliffhanger that's worse than this one is the one in the next book, Dreamfever.

Mac isn't a little whiny bitch anymore, Barrons is starting to show signs of cracking (in the sexy way!), Inspector Jayne gets hooked on Unseelie, Rowena shows her ass in spectacular fashion, and (unfortunately) Dani is the vo

Dear Diary Hey There,

I feel like I’m coming undone, like the fabric of my existence unwound. How melodramatic of me, you might think, but you should try having your whole world explode in your face; turning everything that’s real into a lie and everything that cannot be real into the truth, and then tell me how to deal with it.

I used to be a rainbow girl, a sunshine girl. Now I don’t even recognise myself most days. Within me is a darkness, a cre

***Be warned that this is the 3rd book of a planned 5 book series. So this takes us about halfway through events. It ends on a cliffhanger, but I still loved it!

Holy Sh@%! I just finished "Faefever" by Karen Marie Moning and I'm not sure whether I want to kiss her or kill her. Her writing is lucid, smart, fantastic, and yet somehow believable. If you're a fan of Moning's 'Highlander' series and are looking for more of that...then you need to pass on by. If you're looking for a story so gritty, s

Hope strengthens. Fear kills.

Yes, hope does, in fact, strengthen. The hope that Barrons will save Mac’s ass (pun not intended) from this fecking ending!

First thing’s first. This is the second time I read Faefever. Some things get better, now that I know what’s going to happen in the next book. Some things don’t really change, aka the ending. It was cruel the first time, and it’s still cruel the second time I went through it.

There are only four authors whose publication dates I follow religiously. And ever since the Harry Potter series ended and Anita Blake turned into a creepy sort of person I’d be disinterested in meeting if she were real, there are only two of them whose publication dates I follow religiously so I can actually be at the bookstore the moment it opens on release day to buy my copy. Karen Marie Moning is one of them.

I am unbelievably happy that I have book #4 ready to go. I would be so pissed right now if I didn't have access to the next book in this series immediately. This installment really kicked up this series for me.

Mac is finally coming into her own and I'm loving that evolution. Barrons is still an alpha-hole mystery. (And I love that.) The tension between the two of them is so thick you can barel

After my re-read I'm upping my rating to 4.5 stars.

So many things are foreshadowed and I think the 2 main reasons I had for a lower rating were that 1 Barrons and Mac didn't seem to have as much time together and I got a little focused on that since I really wanted more for their relationship and I needed to know who/what Barrons was and got no real answers this book. The second reason was probably that cliffy of an ending sometimes it is really hard to read about (view spoiler)

“Nobody looks good in their darkest hours. But it's those hours that make us what we are.”

Based on a re-read.

Out of the first four, this one was probably my favorite plot-wise. It would have been a five star rating if it weren’t for Mac’s trust issues starting to annoy me. I can get it though, since the other characters like Barrons and V’Lane are frustrating with their secrecy and duplicity. I wouldn’t fully trust them either, but sometimes I still wanted to shake her. She’s learned to stan
