I have read it at least 3 times and listened to it once. I am sure I'll listen to again.
Nothing. I really don't like her as Mac. She just sounds too old to portray her and her southern accent is way too phony. I live in South Georgia and I do not know anyone who sounds like that. It sounds like she should be reading Gone With the Wind.
Most definitely ranked in my top 10 list.
Verbal scuffles between Mac and Jericho.
Towards the end when Mac starts hopping around like a boxer. Kicking petunias.
The scene with her sister at the beach.
I fell in love with this series right from the start. Mac started out as a sheltered, ditsy blond girl and ended as a take-no-crude-from-anyone woman. I listened to the audio books and then read the hard copies. They are that good. My daughter and I are both hooked.
I listened to this book back in March and immediate brought all the sequels. I still think about them as great listening experiences and I've just decided to listen again to help get me through the winter months. I strongly recommend these books (even if the narrator's "southern" accent isn't spectacular).
I will keep this review short by saying "get this book" (as well as the others of her "Fever" series). You won't be disappointed, and will find that you can't stop reading!
Moning's Highlander Series and Fever series are great. Book 1 is very slow, book 2 gets better...but things don't really get great until the narrator (Joyce Bean) is replaced in book 4 and 5. I wish they'd redo 1-3 with the narrarating team from the end of the series.
This is the second book in Moning's Fever series. The narrator for this series changes midway through. If you can endure the narrator for the first book and this book, it gets much better near the end when she incorporates both a male and female reader to help differentiate the parts.This book continues to follow MacKayla Lane on her journey through Dublin seeking revenge for her sister Alina's death. She finally has accepted her role in the end of the world, fae takeover seeming to overrun Dublin. In the end, she finally encounters the Sinsar Dubh, forever changing the road she has to take to ensure both her survival and the survival of the human race.
I loved every one of these books! The characters are interesting and well-developed. Moning does a fantastic job of keeping the story exciting, intriguing, sexy, and unpredictable. I downloaded all of the books to my phone so that I could listen whenever I had a few minutes, whether I was driving, working out, waiting in line somewhere, or folding laundry. Pretty addictive! I was so sorry when I reached the end. I'm starting her Highlander Series next.
I purchased this book only because we are reading it in book club. After the first book, I wasn't sure I could continue due to the awful narration and terribly simple and repetitive writing (how many times can Jericho say Ms. Lane in one sentence?!). This book however is much better, very entertaining and the narrator has definitely hit her stride, especially with some of the side characters (Rowena, Vlaine). I'm actually looking forward to book #3!
The concept of the story is great and the characters are interesting. Some of the writing though just doesn't work for what we know about the characters. Also, this book isn't as good as the first one and drags a bit. That said, I'm hooked on at least finding out what happens so I will get the third book. I see that after the first few books they get different narrators, which I am looking forward to. The narrator is not awful, but she's not that great either.
