Jen's review of "Faefever" by Karen Marie Moning

Faefever (Fever #3) by Karen Marie Moning
Publication date: September 16th, 2008
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Number of pages: 327
Format: Hardcover
Purchase: Amazon | The Book Depository
Description: He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too. When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds—with devastating consequences.…
In the third installment to Karen Marie Moning's Urban Fantasy "Fever" series, comes an exciting and packed full of adventure with twists and turns story. When we left off in the previous book, Mac didn't quite get to meeting Christian when she was stopped by the book which seemed to be going from person to person.

In Faefever, Mac battles more than she can take. From the other Sidhe-seers and Rowena to Barrons to the Lord Master, Mac goes through a specific journey where she will realize that people will take advantage of you if you let them.
New information gets revealed about Barrons, but to a point where it just brings up more questions and not enough answers. Christian provides to be quite an ally to Mac who discovers that he is more useful than she originally thought.

Out of the whole series I would think the cliffhanger at the end of this book is probably the worst there is. It's an event that I could not have seen coming and one that will affect Mac for the rest of her life.
We get to meet some of the other Sidhe-seers and see how they live at the Abbey.  Mac's friendship with fellow Sidhe-seer, Dani deepens while Mac's relationship with Barrons just gets even more complicated than before.
Barrons seems to give her what she wants, but yet.. doesn't give her the answers that she wants. It's one foot in and one foot out kind of situation and it's one that irritates Mac to a point where she doesn't know what she should do.

If you enjoyed the first two books in this series, then this third installment is of no exception.

Rating: 5/5
