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 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.

4.5 Stars!

Because I couldn’t possibly write a review for each of these books individually, this is a review of the original Fever series (books 1 through 5). Not only would it be too difficult to review them on an individual basis, but it just wasn’t going to happen because I couldn’t stop long enough between books to even be bothered to write a review. I devoured these books.

This is so not my cup of tea. I’m a traditional girl. I like believability, relatability, and normalcy. I like original and unique stories but ones that could happen in real life. Fantasy or paranormal? Usually, we don’t mesh. This series is definitely an exception.

It did have drawbacks. It was long, at times very drawn out (mostly toward the end), and thoroughly confusing. I know it was the author’s intention to keep us guessing and on the edge of our seats, but it got to the point where I had hardly any idea what was going on and it became frustrating. There are so many different facets to this story, so many unnatural laws at play, that it’s hard to keep everything straight. The game is constantly changing, there’s so many players, and the board is unfathomably large. Every time you think you’re winning, Moning has rewritten the rules.

But in her defense, it does keep you interested. You become desperate to know what happens. You root for good to trump evil and you rethink what it means to be either one. I was so drawn in to this story and the unforgettable, gripping characters.

Mac and Barrons are damn near perfection. Their chemistry is like nothing I’ve ever experienced between two characters. This is the ultimate slow burn. It doesn’t get any slower and hotter than these two. Their tension is so powerful. They make you feel so much by doing and saying next to nothing. They are unforgettable.

Take a step out of your comfort zone and read these books. You need to experience this world and these characters. Karen Marie Moning’s imagination is a work of art. I think if my brain was capable of creating a story of this magnitude, I’d go insane. It’s probably why she writes. Lucky for us.
Wow! What a sizzling finale! Okay, I know it's not the end, but this book was an amazing way to end one problem yet leave it completely open for the next. I don't want to give anything away. I want you to read it yourself. I really don't think you will regret catching the Fever, and this book made sure that I had caught it and caught it hard.

There was so many surprising moments in this book that I couldn't find a place to start with them even I wanted to share little details. You all know how much I hate to include spoilers, but I'm telling you that with each book in this series it gets harder and harder to not share even the smallest details.

The beautiful thing about this book is that we get answers to most of our questions. We know where the Unseelie King is and what happened to the Concubine. We also learn more about V'lane and what happened to Cruce. Mac learns more about herself in this book and the terrifying secrets she holds. It's a must read!
Shadowfever is the fifth book in Karen Marie Moning’s epic paranormal Fever series. The series begins in Georgia, with Jack and Rainey Lane adopting two sisters, MacKayla and Alina, from Ireland.

Jack and Rainey Lane didn’t believe in the mystical myths that surrounded the girls, but the ominous warning that came with them was troubling. The message was clear, Mackayla and Alina were never to step foot on Irish soil.

The Lanes did their best to heed the warning given to them, but when Alina was granted a scholarship to study in Ireland, they caved. Jack and Rainey had no idea that their momentary lapse in judgment was going to cause a monumental chain of events that would change their world. Much to the Lane’s dismay, Mackayla would follow Alina into Ireland, not to enjoy the sites, but to investigate her sister’s murder.

After just a few months in Ireland, MacKayla was completely transformed. She traded in her sweet innocence and became a fierce warrior, killing every unseelie in her path. She met a rich mercenary, Jericho Barrons, who became her savior, mentor, lover and arch adversary. The two of them would dance around, in their on-again, off-again, love-hate relationship, sparing with each other for several months. Readers will be happy to know that their lingering questions regarding MacKayla and Jericho’s relationship are all answered in this book.

Barrons was a complete mystery to MacKayla. She knew he wasn’t human, he couldn’t be. Why else would  powerful non-human entities flee from him?

The Sinsar Dubh was the darkest black magic book ever created. It was pure evil. The book would overtake any unfortunate person who was curious enough to pick it up. It would then morph that individual into a killing machine. MacKayla knew the only way to stop the spreading evil was to capture the Sinsar Dubh. But how? Could she pick it up? She wasn’t as human as she thought she was. This evil was chasing, talking and toying with her. So who was she, that this book of black magic would know her? MacKayla was discovering that no one was who she thought they were. Illusion was everywhere. And now, so was war.

I found book five, Shadowfever, to be the best in the series. The plot was intriguing, fast paced and complex.  The characters unique and well-developed. The banter between MacKayla and Jericho Barrons was hysterical.  I would suggest reading the books in order, because each book builds upon the previous one. I guarantee that once you begin this series, you won’t want to stop.
Love consists of what is in your head, directed at your object of affection. During these five books, instead of experiencing the feelings of "love", these people have been anchored in alienating or distancing themselves from those feelings. The way in which they manifested themselves was on a feral natural, a coming together to have sex, much like the act of defecation. I-need-you-now. Let-us-join-so-that-this-lacune-may-be-fulfilled. Or conversely, a withholding, " I-am-complete-within-myself-and-do-not-need-you". Many may thrive on such love, but I do not. I prefer the spiritual give and take, the longing, the impediments that may stand in the way of complete fulfillment of self via the imparting, rather the withholding of information.
