The reason so many people are expressing their disappointment is because they feel so strongly and are obviously heavily invested in the direction the Fever series is going. Everyone will have their differing opinions, good or bad that's fine, aren't books supposed to inspire people to talk about them either way. I don't think it's good form to call anyone with a differing opinion to yours a hater or someone who's just whining. You're sort of belittling people and dismissing their views by doing that. Negative reviews aren't bad. And aren't personally attacking KMM. People are allowed to honestly express whether they are disappointed in a book.(less)

I just finished Burned and I didn't think it was bad at all, I really liked it, it was just different. All the nagging is a bit ridiculous. I love Mac and Barrons, and I love Dani too, but the new Jada twist has really thrown everyone for a loop. I'm not a huge fan of losing Dani so fast, but I'm sure KMM has a plan and I trust her writing. She knows what she's doing. I LOVE this whole series. I can't wait for the next one. <3 (less)

I get now why he fucks with the single-minded devotion of a dying man hunting God. Sex with him is the closest thing to holy I’ve ever known. Barrons is my church. Every caress, each kiss, a hallelujah.

I'm sorry, but I'm just so over Mac and Barrons at this point.

Feverborn seems to be appealing to those Fever fans who hated the direction Moning took in Burned. To be honest, it does contain a lot of traditional Fever elements - Mac and Barrons screwing, alpha males posturing, Sinsar-Dubh iss

Last year we had Burned, and to many it was quite a disappointment. Too much Mac, too little Dani, wtf happened with Dani, wtf happened to the excitement and action that were signature of Fever??
It looks like Feverborn is here to redeem it.

This book made me into this:
After the shit storm that was Burned KMM renewed my faith in Feverborn! Before reading Feverborn I was begging KMM for more Dani/Jada and we definitely got a lot more of her. Jada and Mac had the two main POV’s. Though it felt like Mac had more (or maybe it only felt that way because mac’s scenes are dull and hard to get through for me).
If you are someone who like me was disappointed by the handling of Dani in Burned I really suggest reading this book. The Jada scenes

2.5 stars. It's time for me to finally admit that I've been in denial.

I wanted to believe that the series was still chugging along and doing fine. I defended it. I babied it. I noted the hiccups, then focused on the positives. Until we got to this book.

Feverborn read like there was originally a different story which had been scrapped. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I don't feel like it melded as well into the entire arc. Maybe this is because KMM is still recovering from adding the Dan

Well this was a vast improvement on Burned.

Also, 2 for 2 on my wish list! *fistpump*

And that Thing with Jada? (I'm pretty sure once you've read the book you'll know what Thing I am referring to) Well damn if that didn't make my small heart grow three sizes today.

However, the Alina Plot Twist of the book was a huge disappointment. To me, it felt like KMM was running out of plot lines, and took a page from Writing Soap Operas for Dummies. If it was going to have been A Thing, I feel like it woul

I am continuing to read for Dani (and maybe Lor - there is just something very fun about this dumbass).

I never thought I would get sick of Mac and Barrons, but I really am. It's like we are treading the same water with these two - they have the same conversations, deal with the same problems and have the same sex. It's tiresome and old news. So it's no surprise that the first half of Feverborn was such a boring drag - the same old Mac moaning on and on about the Book and Alina. I can't say that

3.5 Okay I'm Listening Stars

Hmmm….I think that KMM is like Adam Sandler to me in that I loved some of his early movies, so much so that I can quote most of them but then he made movies like Jack and Jill, Click and The Ridiculous 6 and I ask myself, ‘Why do you keep watching his movies?’ and the answer is simple… I’m hoping he can recapture some of that magic and it will be great again . The Same goes for KMM...I'm waiting for her to recapture some of the Fever greatness I used to love.

Well, for better or for worse, Karen Marie Moning has clearly listened. Now, I'm not going to pretend that this was as good as the original books. But it sure is a step in the right direction after Burned. Which, by the way, I found incredibly entertaining but recognize it was nothing like KMM's storytelling at the beginning of the series.

Pointless. Plotless. I feel nothing.

I had a cathartic low with this series during Burned, I let it all out in my review and made peace with the loss. My expectations were hovering around "trash heap" for this book, I knew it would center around Mac, and Dani would be an odd after though of awkward proportions. I was correct. Essentially, nothing happens aside from a desperate attempt at character development, similar to a first book in a long series, so it feels out of place.

I have finished my rampaging, so I can finally write a semi-coherent review of Feverborn.

The book gods didn't grant my wish for a better installment in Feverborn. Better than Iced & Burned at least, which is really not asking all that much, but it still failed that.

I held on to hope that this will be the book that corrects all the shitty stuff that happened in the last book, but hoo boy, NOPE. This won't be a long review because noth

If you’re reading this and haven’t read the other books in the series, SHAME ON YOU! But also, if you’re contemplating on starting this series by reading this review be warned that some events that could be considered spoilery may be mentioned in this review. You’ve been warned.

First off, I want to say that every time I pick up a Karen Marie Moning book I am once again reminded of how epic this world is. Not only is Moning’s writing gripping and all-consuming, but her characters simply leap

I almost gave up half way………..and the only reason I finished the last page was because of Mac and Jericho….they are still my fav couple….never mind that Mac spends some time being invisible!!!!

In the past year, Dublin had transformed from an everyday urban dwelling with a touch of magic to a chillingly magical city with a touch of normal.

Old-school Fever fans should be extremely happy with this book after the last two in the series. It has that feel about it that seemed to have been missing in Iced and Burned. We get Mac's POV, but we aren't only angsting over Barrons too much. The main focus isn't on their relationship, like in Burned. I would say that the biggest focus in this b
Pre-review: Many fans of the Fever series are screaming: "Please not Mac again, give Dani a chance!", I think it's saying something.

And I know I'm going to lose it if Mac continued to be the main character of this book.

PS: I'm still hopelessly curious about what will happen to Dani, but then I learnt Mac and Barrons (both of whom I hate with a passion) will still be taking up spaces in this book, I now need to think very carefully about whether to continue reading.

Extra: things you need to know

Ugh, another disappointing installment. Mac was insufferable, Barrons lost all his appeal, Dani/Jada was a boring Mary Sue, and Ryodan was as much as a paedo as ever. The story line had none of the mystery/intrigue/spark of the original five books, it was generic, and the creepy and contrived relationship between paedo Ryodan and Dani/Jada didn't help matters - that whole tattoo/licking/half naked subplot spoke for itself, what a load of rubbish.

Well, crap, a freaking cliffhanger!!!

Beware: Spoilers if you haven’t read the previous books in the series.

I was trying to think about what actually happened in this installment, and I finally came to this conclusion: Feverborn was more a about mending relationships, and character evolvement than plot progression. That’s fine, because the characters and relationships are the most important part to me. I do wish more happened to forward the overall story, though. Basically there was talk

I don't even know what to say about this book. I don't think I've felt this overwhelmed since Shadowfever! There's just so much information and so many things going on. You definitely have to be current with the reading to even have a clue about who's who and what's been happening!

So mainly, I'll just review the characters and fill in a little bit of what's going on without being too confusing...

Hoping for the Barrons and Mac I fell in love with in the Fever Series. Don't care about Dani/Jada and Ryo

Edited to add: I really liked this book. It was a throwback to Shadowfever. Mac is back to herself, Barron's is showing emotional progress. Jada is, well, I still couldn't care less. The book ends on a big cliffy, and I don't think I can wait another year for the next installment!

The faithful readers of the Fever Series approached this book with a lot of excitement and quite a bit of reluctance, many feeling let-down by events taking place in Iced and Burned... For all of those, this book was a set-up book for the last two of the series and as such, many seeds were planted and not so many things were resolved. However, it was not as jarring as Burned and not as radically different as
I went into this expecting to fully enjoy watching the train-wreck continue (and still kind of hoping that it got better), but what I didn't expect was for the train-wreck to roll over into real-life.

An apology and admission of wrong-doing have been issued, but it might just have been a day too late. When I first read the story and the comments, it sort of became a last-straw situation, one that I rested on top of many other disturbing comments that I didn't like and left me with a bad taste in

Edit 01/02/2016.

I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed it. But overall, my original review and rating for the e-book stand. I wanted more action and less introspection. To explore characters the Barrons' way - by what they do, not what they say.

Feverborn is all over the place, a load of people, milling about, discussing their relationships. Who am I? What am I? Who are you? What are you? Most importantly there is NO PLOT. And how many recaps do we need about what happened in the previous books!
