Don't think, read. I'll tell you how this is going to go: This will be a love story between you and a book. Yeah, you're going to hurt when it finishes, but remember that truly
'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

The only thing I regret is that a book can never be unread, even for the sole purpose of reading it again for the first time.

On another note: A lot of people have complained about the heroine, but I don't give a sh*t. I/>'Tis

Abandon all hope, ye who enter!

Are you thinking, "I'll read on chapter, then weed the garden"? Or "Just the prologue, and then I'll start dinner"? Or maybe something like, "I'll give this ten minutes, and then I'll work on that mountain of homework"?

You might want to weed the garden now. You might want to pop dinner in the oven and put on an extra loud timer, and that homework? Either accept that you will get an ugly ass F or do it now, before you start the Fever series.

You're probably laughing and saying, "Oh, how she exaggerates!"

Look at my face.
5th re-read, 2009 pages (the annoying Mega in 'Iced' included), Mac 1.0 and 2.0 to drive me bugfuck all over again, one creepily obsessed partner in crime who wishes to remain anonymous because of embarrassing lusting over paper & ink book character, teaching my auto-correct variations on the theme 'Barrons' (Barronesque, Barrongasming, Barronsdrool, you get the idea).

But now all 2009 pages are over! :/

Oh, very, very good. It is way WAY better than I expected when I first picked up this series as my next paranormal romance fix. I've been on a PR kick lately, it's odd the way I became fast addicted to a genre I basically avoided, considering I wasn’t even much into urban fantasy. Actually, I’ve never liked emphasis on romance in my fantasy, I’m all for epic/low/grimdark stories and romance doesn’t factor well into the equation (I still don’t. That's what romance novels are for).

A few friends recommended this series over and over, so after a recent surgery and long time at home without kids (yes, I am totally enjoying this recovery) I decided to give these a try. The first few pages of the first book "Darkfever" were a little annoying, with all the main character's young adult angst that she distresses about, but then the storyline and the changes she goes through more than make up for that. And I actually think the author, Karen Marie Moning, intended her to sound the ...more

[Note: I reviewed each book individually, as spoiler-free as I possibly could. This review of the kindle bundle (the edition I actually read) is my review of the series as a whole. Here there be spoilers. You have been warned.]

I have averaged only 2-3 hours of sleep per night all week. Partly because of the nocturnal, tortured, ravening beast that is my teething 7-month-old son, but mostly because of Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Like the Sinsar Dubh, the book of dark magic the serie

This book is like Harry Potter meets Fifty Shades. Let me explain. First it’s a great story for my age group, readers in their twenties. So many novels are directed for young adults that it’s hard to relate to the main characters when they are 16 years old. Since it was made for an older age group the romance is steamier, which is why it reminded me of Fifty Shades of Gray. It’s a story that uncovers the mystical world with faeries that live in and disrupt the human world. There are villains and ...more

An urban fantasy/chick lit series I actually like! I feel like these books are what Anne Bishop's should have been, and emphatically were not: full of a dark eroticism that didn't make me feel icky for having read it. The basic premise here is that the wall between the human and faery world is crumbling, and a young woman (Mac) just might have the power to stop it...but who is she really, and who is that sexy bookstore owner and what does he want? It's hard to say all the reasons I liked this bo ...more

It's one hell of a series. Compelling plot, complex and intriguing characters, unpredictable twist and turns and just completely amazing.

I read all day Saturday (hated interruptions like cooking dinner lol), I got 4 hours of sleep that night after being up till 3am. Then I read all day Sunday, didn't make dinner, fed everyone easy stuff, then got only 3 hrs and 40 min's of sleep. Monday, everyone went to school, hubby went to work... I read all day.

Ahhh love is not a strong enough word for my feelings of this series. This is going to be short because I don't want to give anything away. So we are doing this in a list.
~This series always kept you guessing. I hate it when I can guess an ending, I hate predictability. Every time I thought I knew what was going on I was wrong. This kept you on your toes till the end.

Why yes, I did read all five books in the series in a little over a week. Have a problem with it? ;-p

Supernatural urban romance seemed like a good fit for a cold winter week while I was suffering from a virus. I enjoyed it, but I thought the first book and last half of the fifth were the weakest (started a bit bland and ended a bit convoluted). If I would have had to wait for the next book, I would have hated book three. Since I didn't have months to stew about the cliffhanger, only

Since my previous book debacle, I have decided to return to my roots and indulge in romance extraordinaire Karen Marie Moning, who always gives me exactly what I need when it comes to hot men and great women. This go round, I picked up the Fever Series, which consist of five books - Dark Fever, Blood Fever, Fae Fever, Dream Fever, and Shadow Fever- and devoured them over the course of a weekend. Oh, I am absolutely gaga over this series. Although it is completely different than her Highlander Se ...more

I loved this entire series. I loved the way the characters grew emotionally and psychologically. The plot kept me moving forward and at the same time catching me off guard and surprising me in a way that I loved. I loved how we got to see inside Mac's mind and the struggling she had to go through to become the truly strong, courageous, passionate woman in the end. I laughed and I cried with this book. There were places that made my heart raw with the emotional roller coaster that played out in t ...more

Iwillbe honest, I haven't "read this book" in the literal sense, but I HAVE read all the books in this series. Same fecking thing. I feel compelled to rate this book because as a whole I would rate this book 10 stars. Five stars just doesn't do it any justice. I wish there were more books out there as good as the fever series but unfortunately Karen Marie mining is one of a kind and there aren't. BEST. BOOK. SERIES. EVER.

Over all this book was fan-FUCKING-tastic. Cannot wait to read Iced.
But, for the moment I must take a breather. I CANNOT BELIEVE I WAS ROOTING FOR THE WRONG FECKING TEAM!!!!!!!

Love love love these books! Tried to get all my friends to read them but when I mentioned the books were about fairies, they thought they sounded lame. They are the most addicting books I have read lately and I got two friends to read them and they fell in love too! All I have to say is Jericho Barron's!!!! Read these books you won't be sorry!

Fun fantasy, but she could have condensed it down to 3 books. It got redundant and took a little effort to stay interested by the middle of the 4th book.

Hard to put down UF/PR series! Too bad it comes with all 5 books bundled together. It would've been easier on my family and other obligations if I had to read them one by one as they came out. The heroine, Mac, is my favorite kind, well written and with a nice arc from superficial/shallow to really kick ass. Barons...*swoon* I mean not that I like overbearing, autocratic men, but sheesh, he's heady stuff. I gave it 4 stars because there were a few moments that even I found hard to believe (and I ...more

So I first read the sample for Darkfever several months ago and was really intrigued. I read some reviews on amazon and a few scared me off because I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend 7.99 and not like the book. Well, months later I reread the sample and then started reading the positive reviews again. I decided I was going to bite the bullet and I decided to do so by buying the 5 book bundle. Why the whole bundle? Reviews had stated how each book had a horrible cliffhanger. I knew if I loved the fi ...more

This is the story of MacKayla "Mac" Lane. Her sister, Alina, has been murdered while studying abroad in Dublin, Ireland. Unable to get satisfactory results over the phone, Mac leaves for Dublin in hopes of finding her sister's murderer.

I have read the Fever series four times in a row. It's very difficult to put into words just how much I adore this series. They are unlike any other books I've ever read and are by far my favorite. The story grips you in such a way that you don't want to be let go. And the funny thing is, I never expected to be so enthralled by these books. It is perfection entirely. And despite that it is 'labeled' as a romance series it is truly so much more. But in the end it shouldn't matter what genre it is ...more
