In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh - a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the world of the Fae and of Man.
Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V'lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.
For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.

"Moning's delectable Mac is breathlessly appealing, and the wild perils she must endure are peppered with endless conundrums. The results are addictively dark, erotic and even shocking." (Publishers Weekly)
"Spiced with a subtle yet delightfully sharp sense of humor...delectably dark and sexy." (Chicago Tribune)
This book takes a turn from the Highlander series. The Highlander series engages a new hero and heroine in each novel, with the baritone voice of Phil Gigante who reads through the steamy passages that no one would dare silence. This first book of the Fever series sets up the same heroine into the next novel, with her relationships with the hero (s) still in the air, somewhat unfulfilling to the reader. The female narrator reads the heroine well, but not the male gaelic counterpart. Still, Moning's books are magical and intriguing and good fantastical diversions.
Being able to listen to the first 4 books in the Dream series one right after another increased my enjoyment of them immensely. I really liked the glimpse of the McKelter's, short as it was, too. I always enjoy Joyce Bean's narration of books, she does an excellent job with all I've heard her do.
I am 21 years old, everyone around me has been hyped over the twilight series which bored me to tears. Does he love me? Boo. Then in Borders I found a promo of the first couple chapters of this book, hooked I picked up Dark fever, the first book in the Fever series. This series is dark, sexy, and oddly humorous. It's a fantasy tale that saved me during a time I picked up books and never read them, which is not very economical. It's an easy read, an lot's of fun for passing time. I highly recommend this.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY - Bloodfever is what I would call an easy-listen contemporary fantasy with a mystery component. There is no romance or sex, but there is action and moderate violence. It doesn't have a cliffhanger ending but it doesn't have a satisfying conclusion either, leaving multiple questions to be answered in future books. I really liked Book 1 (Darkfever) but, for some reason, didn't care for this book so I won't be continuing further in the series.
You should really hear Book 1 before you listen to this book, as there is a lot of interesting and important background information. If you skip Book 1, there is about a 10-minute synopsis at the beginning of this book, but it's very condensed and you will need to listen carefully.
NARRATION - Reader does a pretty good job, but it's just an average performance.
BOTTOM LINE - This is probably a good fantasy story, however I'm learning this is not a genre I particularly enjoy.
Say something about yourself!
I encourage you to read my review of the first book and understand that THIS was more of the same.
The narrator’s accent was all wrong...the story was still so full of holes you felt no momentum or pull to root for your favorite characters...and come to think of it you don't really know much about any of the characters. Just totally can't get invested in the series.
With the exception of ONE throw down on the floor that didn’t even end in consummation I was left utterly wanting in the romance department. If anyone out there wants a real paranormal romance try the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward, THAT is paranormal romance!
Overall I enjoyed Bloodfever and thought there was good potential for a series. I can't say that I love the main character, Mac, she's a bit annoying and very much out of place in the stories environment. I'd like to see where this story goes but I wasn't crazy about the narrator either.
Like book 1 most of the action happens towards the end. In the interim there is a lot of Mac time and her imaginery thoughts of her impending future. Mac is still very immature and spoilt but is showing her resourcefullness more and is beginning to discover hidden depths. All these incredible males are attracted to her giving it a Sookie Stackhouse feel at times. Where she enjoys the attention but is variable with her preferences. I found the end of this book rather unpaletable taking it almost in to horror for a while. I was not keen on this narrator.
