I am getting ready to go buy the 3rd book in this series by Karen Marie Moning. I absolutly love it! I'm, too excited. I've only read one book in her highlander series so I don't have anything to base an opinion on.  I like the idea of an on going book. It is not exactly a series, but an on going story with solid characters and excellent and refreshing plot line. It is more of a fiction with a little eroticism thrown in. I hope that it starts to heat up a little in this book. 

 So, I just wanted to know what you guys think about the series

How it compares to her Highlander one.

and what you think about the extended story concept vs. Series

Obviously this is not a popular series.  I was hopeing for a little feed back and I guess I have my answer.

I loved the first book, just bought the second...But am waiting to read it for when I can just sit and read with no interruptions.  Did you like the second one as well as the first?

I have all Karen Moning's books> I loved them all,  *Except Faefever.

I finished reading Faefever this morning at 1:00 am. It took me 3 days to finish. I read about 100 pages when I first  put it down, thinking that maybe

the story will speed-up. It didn't!  Its probably just me, I just think it was going nowhere.

I was very disappointed. There were no surprises, not even the ending.

I could have skipped this book., and I wouldn't have missed anything important.

I saw the commercial for this book just yesterday and it piqued my interest. I may look into this author once my TBR pile starts to go down - LOL

It is not a series so each book is not an entity of itself. There will be no beginning, middle, or end in each book. This is a continuation of the story. All books will end in a cliff hanger if you will. This book is like the section that would be just past the middle point since there is 5 books to the story. I loved the book and can’t wait till Dreamfever comes out. It’s projected October 2009.  I’ve never read a set of books like this. It is essentially like reading a book that is 1500 pages broken up into 5 parts. If you are looking for a romance book this isn’t it. It is fiction with some eroticism intertwined. It is a smart sorry with a lot of plot depth.

 Highlander is romance where Fever is more (urban?) fantasy thriller.   I do like the concept of splitting a very long book in to 5.  Don't mind the cliffhangers but wish the books were 6-9 months apart instead of a year.  There are reappearing characters through out the Highlander series that are mentioned in Fever.  Though it is not necessary to read Highlander to understand Fever, I find that the Highlander stories add background to parts of Mac's world (especially Christian's character).   I do think it is worth while to read the Highlander series, it's a good romance series on it's own but it is a different genre from Fever.

Many people have been talking about this series on Shelfari lately, so I got the first 2 books this last few weeks.

I wasn't sure I'd like this series, but I had gotten the first book from the library and needed to return it soon, so I started it.  I LOVED it.  I listened to the first and second on CD, one right after another and I couldn't wait for the next one to come out.  I bought it from Audible.com on Tuesday and started it on Wednesday.  I think it's pretty good so far.

I have all 3-just won the third in a  raffle and LOVED it. Like someone else said, it runs more like a TV series, sort of like 24-where each ending was really a cliffhanger that left you going WHAT!???!!!!  You literally get cut off right at the end of each book and are like WTH is going on and whats going to happen next? Really it should be one HUGE book but that would be ridculously expensive so its broken up.

I have been looking for a really solid paranormal series for awhile to add to my growing list and I LOVE this one-not paranormal romance-some sensuality and possibilities thrown in, but its really more focused on the characters and their development.

Mac isn't the most likeable in the first book but just like the heroines in the Sookie Stackhouse (Southern Vampire Mysteries) and Kim Harrison books (The Hallows series), she is growing and changing and becoming both tougher and more vulnerable and I am really liking the growth of the character. 

I plan to stick with it and see where it goes, but if you're the type that wants to know it all at once I'd wait till all the books in the series come out and then read them in one sitting.

I finished the first, and am halfway through the second and really loving it.  I didn't read her highlander series, although I may have to go and find it now.  If you like the unending type books try Rachel Caine -- her books always end in cliffhangers too.

i haven't read her Highlander series at all, so i don't know how they compare.

i just finished Faefever last night.  it's definitely got that 'middle book' thing going on with a lot of set up for what's still coming.  it was definitely my least favorite so far, but i'm still interested in Mac and where the story is going and i did like the first two much more, so i'll keep borrowing them from the library when they come out.

I love this series!  I only got into it because my local library had the audiobooks.  (The audiobooks are wonderful!)   I haven't bought the 3rd yet but will probably give in by the weekend!  

Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series isn't like the Fever series at all.  They are alright but not near as good as the Fever series, IMO.
