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.
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.
Mom of 3 wild and crazy boys, I've become obsessed with books again after being sucked into a little vampire/lovestory series you may have heard of, and now I listen to most books (but read at night) so that I can be somewhat productive during the day and not leave my family and home to collapse around me while my nose is stuck in a book ; )
Soooo glad my mom has the whole series already on her nook and that im not reading these as they are just coming out - i would lose it not being able to jump straight to the next one. Ready for some relationships to HAPPEN.
I love, love, love this series. The story line is intricate and interesting, even though it seemed drag a bit. The narrator is spectacular and perfect for the voice of Mac. Did i say I love this series? Apparently, the narrator changes for the next book and I'm a little apprehensive because she has some big shoes to fill.
Fever series is very good - just disappointed with narration by Joyce Bean - voices did not fit characters were actually distracting.
The more recent books of the series, Dreamfever and ones narrated by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross are awesome. Voice of Phil Gigante ties series in perfectly with the previous Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning.
Natalie Ross is fantastic with the female voices - her narration is more to how I imagine Mac's voice to be; plus she nails the Irish accents with other characters.
Exciting sci-fi, fantasy listen by Karen Marie Moning. Highly recommended.
I love these books. I have read them before, but I really enjoyed listening to them. It is like a new story.
I downloaded the first three books as a "three for the price of two" deal. I've purchased the next two! Story gets drawn out at times, but listening to see how it all wraps up. Only bummer, books four and five use different narrarator. Takes some getting use to becasue all the accents and voices are different. Should have used a male and female from book one and kept throughout.
I felt like most of this book was just rehashing was had happened in the last two books. There was far too much looking back and not enough of a look forward, not enough movement in this one. I feel like this series of 5 could have been done in 3 books and therefore, think it's pretty unsatisfying overall. Still don't care much for the main character, but really interested in the male characters. I will continue to see how it all turns out.
