What a great book! I've read the other reviews, and I know there are lots of opinions over the ending, the 5-pack series, that there was 'no plot', and 'no romance'.

Firstly, this is not a romance series, in the vein that other KMM novels have been. It is also a 5-part series, not a stand alone book, as other KMM novels have been. So, if you can put all that aside, and read the series for what it *is* instead of what it *isn't*, then you may fall in it as I have.

I finished the book a few days ago and I've been stewing about it since. For those who complained about the lack of plot, the plot is more subtle here .. but what does occur is still very important in pushing the plot forward to it's eventual conclusion. KMM has remarked that there is a lot of foreshadowing in this book. If you look at what did occur with this statement in mind, you may see the bigger picture of where she is going.

Some questions were answered (who is the Lord Master, what is in the book), some hints were given (V'lane's actions/reactions toward Barrons; V'lane's stories and side comments to Mac), and others were clearly made larger (what the heck/who the heck is Barrons; if you need the book, how/who will get it!)

In the end, what occurs (and I'm not talking about the mentioned 'gang rape' scene, but instead the events encompassing it) is integral to the series. Obviously this needed to occur in order for the series to move forward to it's final 2 books (and how painfully hard will it be to wait for those final 2 books!)

Book 3 has given me more food for thought than the 2 intro books - the first books (which I loved) introduced Mac to this world. Book 3 really takes it, develops it, and gives us hints as to where everything is headed. I thought it was fanstastic, and I agree with the reviewer that said it is the best of the series so far.

I can't say I LIKE this series; however, I am compelled. The story is so horrible that I MUST keep reading to see what will happen. She is promised joy, but how long (how many books must I read) will it take to find out. This series is more like a Tootsie Pop to me - I'd like to bite right to the end. Drawing it out is not enjoyable.

I thought the book was great given the context. I was deeply disturbed by the ending and a little freaked out, but I understand the whys of it. The climactic point at the end where all "he**" breaks loose kind of reminded me of the Ghostbusters movie when the "portal" opens up and all the beastie monsters are running amok around NYC :)

This is not a romance series like her other books, and I can honestly say that I, as an avid reader of all things romance, loved these books more than any of her others, or anyone else's. They are great. This book was touted as the "dark" book of the series, a turning point in the story arc, so lots of people didn't like it but I think it's great and am anxiously awaiting the next installment - which Ms. Moning announced today that she hopes to have it out in August of next year! Whoo Hoo.

3rd book in the Fever Series, it's Mac's darkest hour. The first half of the book initially seems to be just review but on closer inspection, as in the other books, KM Moning hides clues in the smallest of situations. The second half, Mac's world starts to unravel and by the end you realize the author isn't pulling her punches. This book can not stand alone and must be read in its proper sequence or it can be terribly misunderstood. It's the changing point for Mac. Upon re-read and closer scrutiny of clues, it is a changing point for Barrons as well. This story couldn't be told any other way really and Mac will emerge a totally different person. Barrons must examine his reason for existance. He remains a mystery but by paying close attention to details, there are very telling clues. Moning is making Mac work for her HEA as she's making her fans work for clues and understanding.

Readers must keep in mind this is a series and a single book can not tell the story of Macayla Lane, Jericho Barrons, Lord Master, The Unseelie's epic. Hang in there.

Things are always the darkest before the dawn.

This book had a cliff hanger ending that left me wanting to read book 4 asap!!! After there being no actual sex in the first two books, this one caught me off guard when Mac finally does have sex, and who it is with! I am excited that book five will come out in December of 2010 as I have been reading this series for three years now and finally after all the waiting I can't wait to see how it all ends. I hope the final book ties up all the lose ends and tells who is on who's side, as through out the series Mac never really has any one to trust and it would be nice to see who stands by her and who is using her.

REally good book. I stayed up until 2:30 am reading it. I highly recommend you read this series in order. Very curious to see what Barrons ends up being. I saw at the end of the book that Twentieth Century Fox picked up the options. It would make a great series, I don't think a movie would do it justice.

I'm totally hooked on this series. Another winner and with a cliffhanger ending no less!
