Series: Fever, #2
Source: Personal Library
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets…
In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.
For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.

Things are heating up for the Fever series!
No sophomore slump here!
It’s a strange new world out there and the rules have changed: It’s every princess for herself.
Ive discovered why I’ve been sucked into this series. I can’t predict or classify the characters. In a world where literary characters are painfully formulaic, Karen Marie Moning is blazing her own wild road with this series and I’m just happy to be taken along for the ride.
I read this entire book cover-to-cover in a single day… I STILL have questions. I’m making predictions about characters and wondering about outcomes… The reader can never really be sure who is a “good guy” and who is a “bad guy” in this urban fantasy adventure on the dark streets of Dublin.
I’m beginning to think that no character is exclusively “good” or “bad” – I’m starting to believe that everyone’s motives exist in a shade of grey.
I would wear pink because I knew my future was anything but rosy. I would accessorize myself to the hilt, and I would wear flirty shoes because my world needed more beauty to counter all the ugliness in it. I would wear pink because I hated gray, I didn’t deserve white, and I was sick of black.
Mac is beginning to undergo a through mental and physical transformation. On the physical side, she’s turned into black-ops Barbie by her handler.
It seems everyone wants Mac on their side, but she’s learning her lesson about attracting attention… She’s learning that she can’t trust anybody, but she must attempt to gain information from any source possible. She’s developing a set of wonderfully lethal skills and a hard shell.
Barrons has something the rest of us don’t have. I don’t know what it is, but I feel it all the time, especially when we’re standing close. Beneath the expensive clothes, unplaceable accent, and cultured veneer, there’s something that never crawled all the way out of the swamp. It didn’t want to. It likes it there.
I have my predictions about who and what I think Barrons is, but I won’t post them here because I don’t want any of you lovely readers to confirm or deny my suspicions. I’d like for the reveal of Barrons to play out naturally as the author intended.
Barrons remains secrative, dark, and absurdly sexy… But he’s damn fascinating! I’m way more interested in unraveling the mystery of Jericho Barrons than I am about anything else in this series…
That’s saying an awful lot, because this book ramped up everything:
More interesting secondary-characters
More weird monsters roaming the streets
More Action and suspense
More blood and gore
But get this:
NOBODY HAS HAD SEX IN THIS SERIES YET!
I can’t call it Erotica…
I can’t call it a romance…
This is simply one of a kind…
Unfortunately, I’ll have to pause for a bit before reading the rest of the series. I received paperbacks of the first two books in this seres from my friend Terry as a Christmas gift, and now I must set out to buy the rest of the Fever Series!
