Fever #5

“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.”

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh—a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.


This book was very hard to review without spoiling anything. I can honestly say it was the most engrossing book I have ever read. From the beginning, until the very last words I was completely sucked in. In fact, I actually cried while reading the very first chapter, it was that emotional in such a short amount of time. All of the pressing issues are solved and the questions are answered. Only one major question remained at the end of the book, but the answer was something Mac decided she didn't really need to know. I don't have a problem with this as a little mystery makes things much more interesting in the end.

Mac is thoroughly tested over and over in this book, but just as she has in the past, she survives, she endures, and somehow comes out the other side stronger. She has grown so much from the girl that stepped off the plane, yet somehow never once lost who she really was at the core, despite being pulled in so many different directions. I understand now why everyone believed she only had a slim chance of choosing the "good" side of the prophecy. The odds against her were almost insurmountable, and a lesser person would have failed where she persevered. I truly admire her, and her willingness to stand up for what she believes in. I don't think a better person could have been picked for the fate of the world to rest on. Oh, and just as a little side note, she does finally kiss a man that she can't breathe without, and finds that breath is of little consequence. As far as who that man is, well you will just have to read Shadowfever yourself to find out. ;)

I'll admit, as much as I wanted this book, I also was a little hesitant to read it. I wasn't sure how just one book could tie up all of the issues and leave me with a sense of happiness and satisfaction. I am very happy to say that I was wrong and that I should never have doubted the author. The book was every bit as good as the predecessors and left me more than satisfied. Many times after reading a final book in a series I will feel almost hollow and just generally disappointed. Not because the book was bad, but because I just didn't feel any satisfaction in the ending or knowing that I was saying goodbye to the characters. With Shadowfever, this just is not the case at all. The ending is everything it should be, leaving me happy and content, an absolutely rare feat in any final book.

I would highly suggest not reading this book if you haven't read the first four. You need that foundation to give this one the justice it deserves.  As the Author promised, it is a story about light, not darkness. However, as they say, the night is always darkest before the dawn and that definitely is the case with Shadowfever. Be prepared for one heck of a roller coaster ride full of countless emotions that will leave you reeling, and desperate to know what happens next. If I could rate this higher than a "five," trust me, I would. I hope everyone enjoys Mac's final trials in life, love, and war as much as I did. My hat goes off to the author for this amazing world she created and the awesome cast of characters. Bravo!

  1. Great review! I felt exactly as you did. KMM did a great job of wrapping up the series. She gave the readers everything they wanted and more. I hate to see this series end. I have so much invested in it.

  2. That was a great review. I'm emotionally strung out because of this book. I should have taken another day off so I could finish reading it...damn life getting in the way.

    BTW...it's not the end of Mac & Barrons. KMM mentioned that there are going to more fever books.

    SPOILER

    That is why the last page says what it says.

  6. من منا لا يدرك أهمية الغاز!!؛ فتواجده في المؤسسات والمصانع والمنازل؛
    أمر لابد منه بلا منازع؛ وذلك لأهمية تواجده القصوى؛ فمعظم المؤسسات والمصانع تستخدم الغاز المركزي
    ؛ لتلبية كافة حاجياتها الضرورية واليومية لاستخدامات الغاز؛
    ونظرا لأهمية الغاز؛ فهناك العديد من شركات تمديد الغاز المركزى؛ أخذت على عاتقها تقديم خدمات تمديد خطوط الغاز المركزى؛ وصيانه خطوط الغاز
    ؛ وكشف تسربات الغاز؛ بالإضافة إلى إصلاح خطوط الغاز؛
    ولكن معظم شركات تمديد الغاز المركزى بالرياض؛ لا تقدم كل هذه الخدمات بجودة عالية؛ وبأسعار خيالية
    ؛ مما يجعلك تطلب خدمة صيانه خطوط الغاز؛ أو كشف تسربات الغاز
    ؛ وإصلاح خطوط الغاز؛ من شركة تمديد الغاز أخرى؛ تضمن لك تقديم خدمات عالية الجودة؛ وذلك لتفادي مخاطر الغاز.
