I got the first book in the series Darkfever on one of the audible sales. I was pleasantly surprised at how the book pulled me into the story. This last book Faefever might not be the strongest of the three I've listened to so far but still really good. I really enjoy the narrator, she has a deep rich voice and uses accents really well to capture the nuances of the characters. The way she does the male voices are not as good as the female ones. But she does a really good job. As some others have said the ending was a bit of let down. So 4 stars not 5. But over all I really enjoyed the whole fever series so far.
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 strongly disliked the first book but continued anyway as it was part of our book club. I thoroughly enjoyed Faefever and Karen Marie Moning finally hit her stride as did the narrator Joyce Bean (I didn't care for Natalie Ross in the latter 2 books). I listened at 2x the speed as I couldn't bear to wait to see what would happen next, this book is deliciously entertaining. Joyce Royce does a wonderful job narrating all the different voices.
If you were already hooked on the series, be prepared to become obsessed. The ending of book 3 is one hell of a cliffhanger.
So I really enjoyed this series, however the narrator knows NOTHING about a Georgia accent!! The big complaints I read about her was that she sounded too old. I get that, but she sounds like an older woman from Louisiana! Not all southern accents are the same! :) Also, this might be why the main character Mac, really reminded me of Sookie Stackhouse. She is pretty and blond, and keeps getting caught up with some shady characters. Plus there is the whole Fae angle, too. Plus she's pretty ballsy like Sookie. In the last 2 books, there is a new narrator, who actually sounds like she is from Georgia! Very realistically, too. Even down to what south GA sounds like instead of ATL or North GA. HOWEVER, her male counterpart has really really creepy almost yelling voices for the guys. None of this takes away from a great story, though!
Faefever is the third book in the Fever quintilogy by Moning. The reader, Joyce Bean does a good job of developing voices for the various characters. MacKayla, the main character, is developing away from her "pink" Southern Belle debutant self. Although little is resolved in this book, it sets up the action for the next two books and establishes important clues and facets of the plot that are not finalized till book five. It is so rich in detail, I also downloaded an ebook so that I would not miss any of the finer points. It is an excellently crafted work.
I preferred this book to the first two as Mac is getting some substance to her and the heat is turning up on her and Jericho. Some of the peripheral characters are getting more fleshed out and the plot is slowly building. Sometimes I cannot believe how Mac does not see the obvious. One of the things that kept me in this series is Barrons. I am intrigued by him. This particlar book has some harsh and cruel lessons for Mac and I did feel for her towards teh end.
Again i do not think this narrator does a good job of Mac
I really hated the narrator for this audiobook.The heavy southern accent ruined the entire story. Actually, I never got into the story. I stopped listening less than halfway through the book.
I would advise either reading it in actual book form, or just skipping it.
I have loved all the other books by Moning, and was really surprised I reacted so badly to this recording.
Have to agree with Karen that this is a boring book, and goes nowhere. I've listened it for more 3 hours, and had to stop there. "I" just keep meeting different attractive, dominant and self-centered guys (whatever they are), and "I" am always sexually attracted to them. The other female characters are all nuts except "me". Just cannot bear it anymore.
