Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning


GENRE: URBAN FANTASY

The latest book in Karen Marie Moning's Fever series is the best one yet. This book picks up where the last one left off. MacKayla (Mac) Lane has been captured by the enemy and the veil between our world and the fae has ruptured. Mac is rescued by the young sidhe seer, Dani, and is brought back from the edge of madness by Jericho Barrons. The war between the humans and the dark fae heats up and ends with an excruciating cliffhanger.

If you're looking for answers to the questions that have come up over the course of the series, you're going to be disappointed. The list of what we don't know is still longer than what we do. It frustrates me on a level similar to the Lost tv series, but in a good way. I prefer Moning's Highlander series which is a prequel of sorts to this series, but the Fever series does not disappoint.

BEST FEATURE: The verbal and nonverbal exchanges between Mac and Barrons. It's so hot it burns.

WORST FEATURE: Our heroine, Mac, still reads like a self-absorbed spoiled brat. This many books into the series, I would have liked to see more growth in her than just her confidence in her abilities. Although this lends a realness to the character, it frequently makes me want to slap her upside her fictional head.

PARENTAL WARNING: explicit sexual content, violence and language

MY RATING: 4, because I just can't help myself
