As far as sequels go, I feel this book let me down. Only two or three new details were revealed, and after waiting almost a year for this installment, that was hardly enough. And then to end the story the way it did was terrible! I don't want to give away any spoilers to those who are fans of the series, but I didn't think this book was nearly as good as the first two. I'll be interested to see how others review it.
Perfect summertime reading, this book (and all three books in the series so far) has it all: an innocent young heroine; dangerous men; fast cars; a whole lot of dark magick; and a cast of characters and clans with competing interests and hidden agendas. All of these elements come together in a breathless race against time, with the existence of humanity on the line. It's a fascinating story in the hands of gifted storyteller Karen Marie Monning, and it all plays out like a roller coaster ride. Read the so-called "Fever" series if for no other reason than to meet the enigmatic Jericho Barrons, who is one of the most interesting characters in recent memory: sort of a more experienced and less emo Edward Cullen for grown-up women.
I've now read or listened to all three books in this series as well as all of the Author's other books. I still think this series has potential, but this particular book does very little to move the story forward. If it were made into a movie, it could be done very nicely in five scenes or fewer. Way too much unnecessary stuff in here. Don't bother. If you like this Author, read the Immortal Highlander (my favorite!) or one of the other highlander series books, also available on Audible. Also, the narrator (who I usually like) uses an annoyingly phony sounding southern accent.
The series is keeping me interested even though I thought the first two books were light on substance. I know other reviewers thought the third book lacked action, but I actually thought it was playing catch-up in adding to the lore of the Fae and the intricacy of the world's situation. So I was glad to be building a better story. But, sometimes I like taking a break from the action while hiding in the library or on a beach with a Faerie prince. :)
I didn't like the narrator for this book at all. The southern American accent was off and the Irish accents were worse.
I read all of the books first and now I am listening to them... I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Mac & Barron's...
Just listen to them already. The readers are awesome. The story is a page turner. I have been reading and listening to this ENTIRE SERIES. The attention to detail. the story ... the character development. I love love love Dani and Makayla. I am IN love with Jericho. V'lane .... oh where do you stop? If you haven't started this series START NOW!!!
I have always loved to read and just discovered Aubible which I am also loving.
I dont really care for this narrators male voices. #1, they all sound the same, #2. They just arent that good.
I am listening to all of these books because, to be honest, i bought every one of them before I even listened to the first one, mainly because they were highly recommended by friends. Now, I am sick of hearing the word "orgasm".
These books are beginning to be very drawn out. It's almost like the author is trying to see how many books can be written from this one story. Nothing really happens. I will be listening to them all but really not enjoying them.
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
What more needs to be said for Mac and Barron fans, its a series that I love. I have it both in print and audio because I love it. This series is a re-listen yearly at a minimum for me. It's just that good. If you haven't read this series give it a try. It is different but sexy as all get out. Freakin' love me some hardlovin' Barrons, gosh don't ya just want to know what he really is????? I mean, heck, what women wouldn't want to tame that or die trying, LOL...... Mac she is one crazy, blond, beautiful bad butt chic that kills it all, even wants to kill Barrons at times, well death by lovin'........hmmmmm makes for some crazy angst.
love, Love, LOVE BOOKS!!!
I have to say that the Fever (MacKayla Lane) book series is in my top 10 series of all time! I enjoy seeing the complexity of a single character grow. It felt like I was the 'fly on the wall' to some pretty intimate life experiences that were devastating, exciting, heart-renching, glorious, and ultimately victorious. Would highly recommend taking this journey.
