#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning returns with the epic conclusion to her pulse-pounding Fever series, where a world thrown into chaos grows more treacherous at every turn. As Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada struggle to restore control, enemies become allies, right and wrong cease to exist, and the lines between life and death, lust and love, disappear ...more

I'm tired of hearing people complain that KMM isn't writing the story the way they think it should go because I happen to love the way the story is going. I'm tired of watching Dani lovers bash Mac lovers or vice versa. Every time KMM puts a book out, somebody goes crazy because they didn't get the developments or characters they wanted. It's really simple, if you think it should have ended, stop reading it. I sometimes think the problem people have with this series is that she's no longer writing romance novels and to me, it seems some people keep trying to force this series to be a romance that follows classic romance conventions.

Dani was kept in a cage for years and turned into a killer by the age of eight. This isn't a romance series. It's dark. It's brutal. It's about young women trying to be strong in a hard world. No one in this series is perfect and that's a huge part of my attraction to it. KMM doesn't try to explain their flaws away, she writes them flat out flawed and lets us decide what to think of them. I'm so involved in the Jada/Shazam thing that I cried at the end of Feverborn. And after reading the recent excerpt from EW I'm a nervous wreck about Mac.

I found this series one day when I'd run out of good scifi/fantasy books to read. I'm not a romance reader so my expectations of it were probably very different. I fell in love with the complexity of the plot and world-building, the endless mysteries and red herrings, and I'm starved for more details about this world the same way I feel about the Harry Potter books. While I think KMM could have moved the plot forward more in Feverborn, it's really classic KMM, doing the slow build to the huge finale, like she did with Shadowfever. And that excerpt, SHE WENT THERE. Good God, she actually went there. She turned Mac evil. If you've been reading the series since the beginning, you had to know that was going to happen. I think all hell is going to break loose in Feversong and I'm going to be violently depressed when this series ends. :((less)

This may be a long and rambling review. I think it's time I was honest with myself and admitted that the true magic of this series ended with Shadowfever. The books that followed that, Iced, Burned, and Feverborn were not bad, but there was something missed that was never recaptured. And it's definitely not rekindled here.

While I didn't hate Feversong, it was somewhat disappointing. I won't spoil anything, and unless you haven't read up to this point yet, you'll know the main unresolved story co

Oh, Feversong... A conclusion that both satisfies and also underlines how unnecessary and sloppy the last 4 books really are.

Reading Feversong, I was mostly bored, not annoyed or disgusted at least, but bored nevertheless. The plot centers on finding Song of Making needed to get rid of the black holes that are poised to consume Earth. But the road to the solution is long and void of excitement or mysteries.

Alright, I'm surprisingly pleased with this book. I think my expectations for Feversong were set quite high, but they were exceeded. Honestly, they were more than fulfilled! This installment was way better than I thought it would be and I loved it! Yes, I loved it, though there were some major problems which I will tell you later in this review.

After reading Feverborn, the worst book so far, I expected this book to be disastrous. I read some reviews and they mentioned their disappointments, I totally understand why but I wasn't since like I just mentioned, I thought the worst before starting this book. Thus, I enjoyed Feversong. Of course, many some chapters were so boring but I liked it more than Feverborn and even Burned. Yet, the numerous flaws are still there and we can't just ignore them.

Yes, I'm pulling out the 5-star review, even though it wasn't perfect. I couldn't put the book down and it got to me. I actually had salty discharge coming from my eyes at one point.

Ok!! So this is it! The last book with Mac and Barrons.

I’ll be 100% honest here and say I’m a Dani/Jada stan chomping at the bit. So my hopes going into reading this were: PLEASE LET THERE BE SOME TIME FOR DANI ALREADY. My hopes were met. Jada finally gets her time in this one. As a Dani lover I’m finally, somewhat , satisfied.

An improvement to Burned and Feverborn, I kind of hated those instalments. This one wasn't brilliant, there were a lot of things that bored/annoyed me but there was also a fair amount I really enjoyed.

A few things were good, but most of it was incredibly disappointing. The first third was boring as hell and repetitive. Then it got interesting for a while. By the halfway mark I was annoyed and stayed that way for the rest of the book. The only reason I finished this so quickly is because I knew if I put it down I'd never pick it back up again.

The Fever series (1-5) is one of my all time favorite urban fantasy series, it's darkly original and so compelling. I even LOVED Iced, Dani is my favorite character.

But then people had to go and whine about how annoying Dani was and blah blah blah and Moning caved to them, and then we got stuck with this disappointing hybrid of a spinoff series.

I just wish the last three books were Dani like it had originally intended to be. Her parts of this book we
I can breath again, I was holding my breath for those last few chapters. The final days with these beloved characters was intense and very satisfying. I rolled through the whole emotional scale on this last ride, happy, sad, nervous, ugly crying, fear, stressed, doubt, anger and joy. I also suffered from insomnia, this book invaded my dreams, waking me several times a night with a flash on energy as my mind mulled over the last few pages.

With Feversong, Karen Marie Moning dramatically drops the curtain on the Fever series. Bold and brilliantly layered, deeply emotive and all consuming, the story curves full circle as Mac and Dani try to save the world. Theirs has been a story of transformation, of finding the strength within to become who they’ve chosen to become, to wield the gifts they were given. No doubt fate has dealt them a bad hand, taken each to places dark and ugly. And in this final push, they must reach for the magic ...more

A lot happened in this book. But there were errors/plot holes. One of the last ones was Mac saying late in the book that she wondered at how only 2 days before Jada had a meltdown. Yet they'd been in the silvers and out, and more time had passed than the 2 days even before they entered the silvers but after the meltdown.

From the moment I first started reading the Fever series, the only thing I wanted was for Mac and Barrons to be together and to be happy. And that was a struggle...we had to go through so much to get to this...the end of their story arc. There were a lot of crazy things that happened and then even crazier things. It was hard to keep it all sorted. To figure out what in the hell was really going on was just an absolute mind f*ck.

SPOILERS AHEAD (Also, it's more of an incoherent rant as opposed to being a mature, well written review. Sorry :p )

Honestly, nothing happened in Feversong. I mean, people were running around but all in all, I can't remember a single thing that happened between 30% and 80%. There were no fight scenes. The villains didn't feel threatening at all. No character development. No loose ends being tied up.

We did get a lot of inspirational inner musing from practically everyone

I've waited a long while to immerse myself back into Karen Marie Moning's Fever world. I was so excited, so much so that I began to fear I would be disappointed and it would be my own fault. No fear needed though, it was perfection! I remember feeling that the "song" and black hole elements were getting a bit redundant as the story progressed but there were so many other new and critically engaging elements that would follow so it didn't negatively impact my enjoyment AT ALL. This series finale
I was mostly happy with the way things turned out. Wish the last three books were Dani books as KMM had originally planned. That way Ryodan and Dani's story would've been more fleshed out instead of flip flopping between Mac, The Book, and Dani/Jada. Instead we got endless "Book" POV: "WE ARE DESIRE, LUST, GREED, AND THE PATH WE CHOOSE TO SUPREMACY." Who the heck cares? I certainly didn't. Gotta say I skimmed or put my audio on 2xs the normal speed just to get through.

Feversong is good enough.

That means it was heading to be a complete disaster but somehow it redeemed itself. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect. It's not even great. But I absolutely adore this series and because of Mac and Barrons-and even Dani-I'm saying it's good enough.

KMM made the right moves and I'm a sucker for HEAs.
