My Rating: A+
I loved the destruction of old Mac in this book. While I mourned the loss of her sweet innocence the same way that she did, the fact that the new Mac is a bit (more than a bit) on the dark side and very much kick ass, was delightful to me.
The author writes her emotions in a way that I felt every pang of guilt Mac did and all the frustrations at Barrons's evasiveness.
This book wraps you up from the first page and transports you to a place you probably would never want to be but you can't seem to look away from. I highly recommend this series and I just can't wait to read the third installment.
This is an excellent continuation of Darkfever. The Fever series is a new paranormal mystery thriller by KM Moning and with each book she gradually reveals clues about what is happening in the world and who Jericho Barrons really is. Mac grows as person although she is still a reluctant heroine. It's highly detailed and the research put into it is immense! Moning doesn't hand you answers on a silver platter; she makes you work for them with clues hidden in what would first appear to be a casual comment or observation...
The reason I think the books aren't being released into the system is readers are hanging on to them to re-read and study along with readers on her forum.
The series will be a total of 5 books.
Bloodfever is the second installment of the Fever series. I have not included any spoilers but there might be a few from the first installment, Darkfever.
The Lord Master is freeing the darkest enemies imaginable. He is letting them roam free among humanity. MacKayla can see these creatures and with Jericho Barrons help they must discover how to close the portal. Since the first installment of the Fever series, MacKayla has grown and matured a lot. She is still coping with the death of her sister but that only fuels her passion for stopping the Lord Master. We still see a glimpse of the old MacKayla with her dreams of having a normal life with lots of pretty rainbows but now she has some harsher edges which helps her in the end.
Jericho and MacKayla are still hunting for Fae artifacts. She has started to get use to Jerichos way of working but at times she still is very frustrated. The pull between the two of them is very palpable and we are always on the edge wondering if they will take the next step with each other. MacKayla comes upon others that are like her and now she sees that she has other options then Jericho. Seeds of doubt are placed in her mind from both sides leaving her conflicted. Should she continue her allegiance to Jericho or set out on a new path to learn more of what powers she possesses.
Another blow against MacKayla, she has learned that her sisters ex-boyfriend and murderer, Malluce, is still alive (or as alive as one could be in his state). He is out for revenge and he is not going to hold back. And if that isnt enough, Vlane the Fae prince is still coming to her in all is sexual glory.
Once again Moning has created a fast-paced gripping read. The reader is wrapped up in MacKaylas life and near death and when Bloodfever ends our fingers tingle to pick up the next installment, Faefever, with feverish anticipation.
I have totally fallen into the Fever world. This book deserves it's 5 rating, and I enjoyed it more than Darkfever. It makes me want to call in sick (even though I have never done that) and read at read lights, I know it's a keeper. I LOVE the Fever series. Some complain about it not being long enough, I felt it was book worthy, and it's part of a real series, so of course it's going to give you cliffhangers. It gets done EVERY week on the T.V. shows we watch, right? Well, same, but not here! Ms. Moning has created this awesome series that packs adventure, good vs. evil and a girl who is learning that the world wasn't as "peachy" as she thought it once was. Add Jericho Barrons in the mix and you have one heck of a story. I am not going to spoil, but I will have to say that I finally got more than a little tension and wordplay between Barrons and Mac! I am going to try to read the Highlander series and delay the next book, Faefever so that my wait for Dreamfever won't be so long, but I don't know if I'll really be able to do that. I can recommend this series highly, even though it's not about the romance but the journey!
FANTASTIC 2nd entry in her Fever series. Some incredible tie-in's with the Keltar series too!
