Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning
Fever #4


MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the erotic Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master's spell. In the New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning's stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin's battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest-and most erotically charged-adventure of her life.

He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought-and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V'lane vie for her body and soul, as she rallies the sidhe-seers to fight an impossible battle, and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac's greatest enemy delivers a final challenge...

It's an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth-about herself, and about the world she thought she knew.

Mac has come a long way, and only someone of her strength could have come back from the ending events of the previous book. Barrons is the one she could always count on, so it makes sense that he would be the one to be able bring her back. However, everything always comes at a price, and it may take more than Mac has to forgive him for what he has to do to restore her mind. I really sympathize with Mac.  It has to be very confusing to feel betrayed yet saved by someone at the same time. I think what stings the most is that she really does care for him, so what happened means something to her, but she is afraid it didn't mean anything to him. Only time will be able to tell if they can "heal" and move past it.

"Savage Mac" seems to have all but completely taken over in this book. I understand she need that toughness and "armor" to protect her mind now, but I hope her softer side doesn't completely get lost. If there is no light in her, then there will be no difference between herself and the evils she is fighting. At one point in the book it is said that there is two sides to a coin and it can flip at any time. Mac adamantly refuses she will ever flip, and I truly hope she is able to uphold that vow with all the travesty around her.

I love Dani's character. She is hilarious with her constant cussing and crushing over the men even though she is only 13. She never should have had to see and go through all the things she has at such a young age. The saying always goes, "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger." This motto seems to be working for both Mac and Dani, as both keep surviving and come out the other side more determined. The two together are a great force to be reckoned with when they work together to bring down Unseelie.

Well, I thought a wait after the ending of the last book would be bad, but I was wrong. The ending of this one completely blows the last one out of the water. This one truly is a cliff where the last one can only be called stepping off a curb at this point. I still cannot believe the author left it where she did, and I know I'm going to spend the next five months agonizing over what going to happen in the final book. When I first started reading this series I couldn't believe I hadn't read it sooner. Now, I almost wish I hadn't yet so the wait wouldn't be so bad. I can honestly say I've never read a "worse" cliff hanger than the one in this book. I have a feeling the final book will be one heck of a doozy.

  1. I discovered the fantastic Fever series earlier this year. I inhaled the books. After finishing Dreamfever, I wanted to scream Noooo!!! And like you and I'm mad that I didn't wait to read them. It has been torture waiting for the release of Shadowfever. January is so far away!

  2. I have to agree with you, this is the effing worst cliffhanger ever!!!

    But also this series is one of the best ever, so I might try to forgive KMM that she did that to us! I'm desperately waiting for Shadowfever!!!

  3. When I reached the end of Dreamfever I swear my jaw dropped to the floor, lol ... I mean, the cliffhangers went from *I don't really care* (book 1) to *OMG!* (book 2) to *NOOOO!* (book 3) ... but book 4 just left me speechless, I couldn't freaking believe that KMM would end it like that, lol ... and that had better not be Barrons, that's all I'm going to say, because Mac will tear herself apart if - after he saved her and she pushed him away - that's how things end. NO. No. No. No. January 18th cannot come too soon.

  4. Hi,

    Stopping by via the Hop. Great review - I have only read the first book in this series but I have Bloodfever now so can't wait to sink my fangs into that one.
