henlo issa me again! I did a read-through of this book as promised. SOOO....yeah this book is essentially what you would expect. I reckon if you are hardcore macxbarrons super stan 10000 you will love this book.

If you are a Dani/Ryodan person I reckon steel yourself and lower your expectations for how much the book will be mentioning them. Going into the book I had low expectations for how much screen time they'd receive, but they had even fewer interactions than I thought they woul

Back to Mac again? Like, why? Isn’t it time to bring someone new to the front?

But I know I won’t be able to resist it even though the chances of this book being good are close to zero.

I'm going to be completely honest. Up until a few weeks ago I had no idea that this book hadn't already come out. It was only after I found out that it was going to be released this month that I gained back some motivation to read it.

I'm also going to freely admit that my rating is higher than it should be for a mixture of reasons. For a start, this series will always have a special place in my heart even though it should have probably ended with book 5 (yes, even though I have rated some of th

Favorite series of all time.

For the “I might be losing interest”, for the “another book? When does it end?” , please check out my review of Book 10. I don’t understand how people think this series is even close to finishing. KMM has written this series with so much depth. I could see this series expand every which way like the Hall of Days. My review has questions I had befo

**No Spoilers**

You are absolutely positively in for a treat with this series finale. It was quite a ride.

And I promise you that all will be well by the time you reach the last word.

For those of you who are unable to reread the series before you start this, the glossary is spoiler free and you can read that. I was unable to reread myself and was just fine. Still, a fresh reread would have been ideal.

I absolutely LOVED this book. And I loved how everything ended up. Trust the author and trust th

This is the way the (Fever) world ends: not with a bang, but with a whimper.

What the hell is this? It reads like fanfiction of the original Fever series, and not even good fanfiction at that. The crappy kind where everyone is drop-dead beautiful, there's no tension, the WRITING IS BAD (whatttt KMM you were a good writer before!) and the main couple makes you sick to your stomach.

But yeah. Let's rewind a little. This is the very last book in the Fever series, and IMO should never have been writ

So this long-awaited book will be released, at last, in less than three weeks.

I started reading English books, like really reading not counting abridged classics, in 2014 then 2015 was introduced to ebooks.

This is the series I've been reading the longest. There're others but I either finished or been on hiatus since I first read them. Many readers have been following Fever for a longer time. But it's quite special to me because I read the whole 5 books in one week. It was the only time in my li

Do I think that the Fever series could have been finished like five books ago? 1000% yes. Does that mean it should have? Mmmm I think that’s up to you. I, for one, am so, so, so happy that the book is back to Mac’s POV. I don’t mind Dani/Jada and Ryodan’s relationship, but god, I care so much more about Barrons and Mac. (I seem to be in a bit of a minority according to the comments on this page though?? Lemme know your thoughts)

I only started this series about four years ago, and have reread it

5+++ stars for KOSAL!

I can’t believe I just turned the last page on the last book of The Fever Series. KOSAL was so special in a gazillion ways, but what a delight to see my name immortalized at the end of the book! Look for Korrie’s Korner—that’s me! I can’t even find the adequate words for a review right now. I feel stuck. Transfixed in time, in the land of Dublin, Ireland.

My review:

This would have been a five star read, until I read the last part of the novel. Now, I'm kind of a little bit pissed. If you love Ryodan, if you think he's the best damn thing to happen to this series, then you are going to love this ending. Me? I tolerate Ryodan.

I acknowledge that he's a necessary character in my second favorite series of all time, and I sometimes feel mildly... fond of him, but that's it. So the fact that he got the ending that in my opinion, should have gone to Ba

Thank goodness we went back to Mac. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to enjoy Dani’s POVs. Even here I didn’t like them, I think to me she’ll always be that 13 year old and I just find her whole relationship with Ryodan slightly disturbing.

I loved this book, if only for Mac (who will forever be my favourite heroine ever) and Barrons (whom I love almost equally as much). Their relationship is beautiful. When Barrons said he’d raze worlds to be with her I gushed. In actuality, I gushed an embarrass

I didn’t know how a series as monumental as the Fever Series could be wrapped up so beautifully, but here we are!

Having had a few days to reflect after finishing KOSAL. It’s a bittersweet feeling to hang up my MacHalo, but let me tell you all...KOSAL is everything and more. It’s a beautiful, exciting, and momentous closure. All summed up perfectly with, “The End”.

You are going to LOVE it!!!

I wish I could say I loved this book. Unfortunately, I didn't. With every books since Burned I've been waiting to be overtaken again by the magic that was once the Fever series. But after every installment since Burned I've found myself left empty and dissatisfied. And I've felt like the characters were just a little bit less themselves by the end of each new book that came out.
KOSAL is no exception either. After giving it ample thought, I believe that it is the writing that pulls me out of the

I should start by warning you : I am a huge Dani fan. I love her soooo much. This is mostly for the people who feel the same way. I don't know if I will rate the book because I am obviously very biased and I only read it out of curiosity, knowing perfectly well that it was a Mac book. I couldn't help it.

(view spoiler)
Wow. Final book in the Fever series and it was a huge motherfucking disappointment. This was without a doubt the worst book in the whole series with Mac as the focal point of the book. The idea and premise of this book was so damn good! This book could've been so epic and amazing, but the execution was so bad.

Loyal fans of the series would enjoy it.

For the rest it's going to be a similar to books 7-10 experience...especially if you felt like Mac/Barrons story was perfectly concluded at book 5. Something that defined (and built the love) for the original fever books was of course the build up to Mac/Barrons love story. And since that was successfully completed already in book 5, everything that followed after regarding them didn't really have any growth (nor did it bring excitement). Second dealing w

I feel awful not rating this book higher. I’ve been a die hard fan of KMM’s Fever series and Highlander series since the beginning. I was counting down the days for the release of this last book in the Fever series. But if I’m being totally honest, I found this finale underwhelming.

I wasn’t crazy about the introduction of new characters in this last book or the priority they were given in the storyline. We readers have spent 15 years in this series with the same core group of characters. It jus
