Adult Paranormal > Fantasy

“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.

O.o Goodness, WTH did I read?!!!

So… this is the what they’ve been talking about. The explosive finale that will leave readers wanting, gasping, and aching for more. And I am so happy (and relieved!) that Shadowfever surpassed all my expectations for an urban fantasy novel. Fever series was worth it, from book 1!

(I think I just became Pri-ya for this series.)

For one month, I read all 5 books, and I was plagued with sleepless nights. Forget being a zombie at work, or neglecting my blog. I need to finish, no, devour a Fever book once I lay my hands on it. I simply need it! (Yes, this is me as a raving lunatic.)

Thank you, Karen Marie Moning for providing me the entertainment I wanted from Faery, and very bad boys. :D I take back all the negative things I said about other Fever books. Shadowfever erased all my frustrations, period. That being said, can I take home Jericho Barrons? *winks*

I’m not sure if you’ll get a proper review from me for Shadowfever. It left me breathless, to tell you frankly. It was 100% absolute entertainment, for a reader frantic for the truth about Mac, Barrons, V’lane, the Unseelie King, and that monster book.

All those doubts you have when you started Darkfever? And  all those freaking rants you are holding back at the end of Dreamfever, making you think that this will blow up pretty badly in the finale?

Believe me, Karen Marie Moning have the answers (amazing ones) in Shadowfever. So, so much more than a Fever fanatic can ever hoped for, and that’s what you’ll get.

Shadowfever is one f*cking outstanding finale. The reveal for each character is a mindf*ck. Don’t ask anymore, just read it. And feel the fever that is Mac and Barrons. Wohoo!

  1. IKR? I really liked the series too, gave each of the books 4 or 5 stars on Goodreads. Ang galing nung wrap-up nya, no loose ends talaga. :)

    Oh, and since you liked this, you might wanna check out “Iced” by the same author, it’s spin-off. Story set in the same universe after Shadowfever, but this time Dani’s in the limelight. It’s her story. And it’s really really good too. :D

    • Yay! kaka-adik lang ng Fever series. However, I am hesitant with Iced eh. Ang love interest nya ay ing Scottish guy na turning to fae, what’s his name?

Hello! Lemme know what you think :)
