162. Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning...

September 20, 2009
dreamfeverAbout the book:
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 cryptic entries from her sister's diary mysteriously appear 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 her sister, about Jericho Barrons...and about the world she thought she knew.

drey's thoughts:
Ok. If you haven't read Karen Marie Moning's Fever series, don't pick it up. Yet. Wait until Shadowfever comes out. Trust me--it's because once you pick up these books, you just HAVE TO know how it all wraps up. Might as well wait till they're all there to read. Or you'll be stuck in Fever purgatory with me, anxiously waiting for the last installment to this mesmerizing series. Not that I wouldn't welcome company. *grin*

Now that the "warning" has been delivered, on to the "fun" stuff! Not that Mac would call what happened to her, "fun". Even if her Pri-ya-self does, on her way back to reality. Whether reality is a preferable state, is up to you.

Dreamfever picks up exactly where Faefever left off, without missing a beat. And on goes the drums of hell through the streets of Dublin. When Mac comes to her senses, she goes on a tear to save her city, not caring about the enmity from her sister sidhe-seers, Rowena's censure, Dani's adoration, V'lane's attempts at reconciliation, or Barrons. Even Barrons. Especially Barrons. Eventually, she comes to the realization that as much as she wants to do it all her way, on her own, she cannot. And if she is going to avenge her sister's death, she needs to reach out to the others who share some of her goals.

And so Mac grows up.

Thanks, Drey. I have heard the same thing from a close friend about these books being addictive. Now I have to see who might be giving away the first one so I can start some time...thanks for the good recommendation!

I LOVED this book - and with your warning, I was prepared for the ending (which I want to talk to you about - guesses!?!). Just as good as the rest of the series.

I read her Highland series and loved them and had to find more by Karen and found this series - read the first one and loved it - been waiting for the second one from the library for what seems like forever - really only 2 weeks but it is too long. Not looking forward to the cliffhangers since there doesn't appear to be a release date for the 5th book but I so have to continue reading them. They are different than so many other books out there - sooo hard to put down once you start reading. I know I am going to have to end up buying the 4th one unless I can get lucky and win it somewhere because I know I won't be able to wait for it at the library. Keep hoping to see a release date for the 5th book since I keep hearing that the cliffhanger is a doozy.

This looks so good. I'll have to add it to the TBR list!

I've read the first 3. I borrowed this 4th one from my friend who got me into this series. I need to read it, but am swamped by homework and ARC's. I can't wait to read it, though!

I've started to pick these up as I come across them in the used bookstore. I haven't started them yet but sounds like I will wait since I had cliffhangers and want to know what happens next.
