I would read another Moning book, but Bean as narrator...No way.
The story was intriguing and I wanted to know more about the Fae, the seers, what happened to Mac's sister...Everything.
She made Mac sound like such a ditz.
The reviews say the narrator changes in the 4th book. I will keep listening because my friends have told the story is worth dealing with Joyce Bean's ditzy Mac.
Geeky painter girl who loves all things Whedonverse. Audio book addict. :D
Excellent story & very engaging. Really cool spin on the fae folklore - I will definitely be reading the rest of the books in the series.
Yes, but sadly, sleep and a full time job got in the way. :D
Yes. I'm actually listening to it after having read the books. It just grabs you and wraps you up in the story.
Mac is my favorite, as well as Barrons. It's interesting to watch their relationship evolve, and Barrons is so mysterious and HOT!
No. She's great!
I love the wordless communication that Mac and Barrons have. And then to see Barrons taking care of Mac when she's recovering is way out of Barrons' comfort zone, but touching.
Right up near the top.
The Twilight series.
Jerrico Barrons just didn't sound right.
Pity the rest of the series was not available in audio form. Had to get the rest on Kindle
I love all of KMM's work. I keep reading reviews of people who are disappointed with this book, and have to say I'm shocked. This series is 5 books long and KMM does a great job of building a character over time. Sure Mac seems like a bleach-blonde dim-wit for a great deal of the first book, but she literally grows up throughout the series.

Do not give up on this series just yet. It is a fantastic story! The narration is not the best.... but if you can make it through to the last 2, it is awesome.
no, the male and female narrators on the CDs are much better than the audible narrator.
This story is fantastic all around.
her voice, accents, and intonation. she sounded too old, and her voice for barrons sounded like an old lady which kind of ruined the story.
it was a great book and the series just gets better. I am waiting for another series from her that is not a spinoff from this oneone.
I loved this series on my Kindle and enjoy it just as much on my iPod. I did find myself laughing out loud at the arguments between Barrone and Mac because they are so human and in a story where humans are not the main event, they are refreshing and well done.
If you purchase any one of the Fever series you should buy them all since they are really only chapters in a longer novel. Individually they have no resolution but they build to a very exciting conclusion. The first three are voiced by Joyce Bean who does a great job of sounding like a young,pretty, slightly spoiled, southern princess. She is less successful with the very critical character of Jericho Barrone, who sounds like a grumpy leprechaun. The last two books change narrators and tone which is an improvement. But Bean is perfectly fine in the earlier books when Mac is still somewhat naive. However all her male characters tend to sound much the same.

Everytime she did her voice for Jericho I kept seeing this creepy little Leprichan type guy. There was nothing appealing about the voice. I could see the guy that Mac discribed but the voice.... I would see red hair, green suit, 5 foot or smaller playing in a pot of gold. At least Mac wore a rainbow dress when she went to the "Vampire's" house. Oh wait that is proving my point
