Returned unread... I like some spice in stories but not this spicy.... I can do without the wild fantasy sexual extremes. N judgments to those who can, however. Each to his own.

Holy batshit crazy, things just took a complete 180 degrees with that ending.

Even though I more than enjoyed the second half of the book. There seems to be too much redundancy about too many things. The pissing contest between V'lane and Barrons was getting too much for me and because of that, I'm almost glad of the new plot development.

Also side note, there is a great chance that you'd be majorly offended at a couple of subject matter. I certainly got ticked off a couple of times, even though Barrons would say that, "I was full of shit."

I NEED ANSWERS!

Book 3 of Fever series, preceded by BloodFever and followed by Dreamfever. Mac's story continues and it's getting more and more dark and interesting. Wow! It ends with a cliffhanger and I must start the next book NOW!

The opening statements say it all about this book, this is not Mackayla's most proud moment...it is very high on the romance scale. Not once does she romanticize any of the people around her though, she makes observations, but refuses to give in to them, especially V'lane.
V'lane is given a greater depth by actually talking to Mackayla. The Seelie nobility has as much political backstabbing as any other ruling body does, but theirs is to a degree times their age. The Fae are not as perfect as they seem. In fact, he knows the enemy, LM is someone named Darroc, who is not only threatening the existence of humans, but the Seelie as well. Emotionally, V'lane is arrogant, and has a temper, but he needs Mackayla's abilities, so he does his best to humour her. His attempts to learn about human nature for her do seem genuine though.
So far most of the enemies, and allies, Mackayla has met, have been shades of grey in terms of morality, now the first truly black "character" makes it appearance. The Sinsar Dubh has been given form, and rather than being an innocuous book that a person is using, it is a beastly tome possessing random people for its own evil purposes.
After the last book's events, Mac has decided she is going to take action. No longer will she wait for answers, wait to be saved, or rely on her supposed allies. In a proactive streak, she creates her MacHalo to fend off Shades, forges new alliances, and plays her information like a master at cards, revealing only what she must. Too much happens one after the other, a few additional quiet lulls would have helped to keep a steadier pace.
As Samhain approaches, the pieces are set to try and keep the walls of the Unseelie prison from collapsing. However once again they are all outmaneuvered. The books so far have a pattern where in the final act Mac finds herself thrust into a situation where her life is in danger, and she gets saved. This time things are a little different in that, with no allies about, she ends up helpless to stop the massacre, and even more helpless to save herself.
Faefever is a turning point where everything begins to crumble. Mac herself is more "evil", and this disturbs her. The world of rainbows is fading away.

A non-stop read! Many great characters and had to immediately download the next book Dreamfever.

Thank god I am reading these after the last in the series has already been published. If I had to wait a year between these maddeningly good cliffhangers, I would surely manage to tear all my hair out. This book is perfect.

Very slow book, reads just like the first book. Not much difference.

Mac’s quest for The Book continues and she is forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an over-sexed Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes and Jericho Barrons who is a man (or is he?) of animalistic desires and untold secrets. Mac is in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

When MacKayla Lane receives a letter which is a torn page from her dead sister’s journal. She is frozen by Alina’s desperate words with her sister’s killer being so close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the Mac is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

This series is a delightfully naughty, intriguing adventure. Love this series and could not put the books down.

I am so in love with this series! I have read so many reviews from people who don't like Mac's character. I actually really like her. I love the way the author has moulded her from a stuck up, spoiled princess to a kick butt heroine!

This book in particular (for me) wasn't as action filled as the previous two but it answered a lot of questions and steered the series into a new direction. I loved it and am halfway through the next one already!
