Publisher's Summary

MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman.

Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.

When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death - a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone - Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers.

The quest to find her sister's killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed - a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae.

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister's death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane - an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women - closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac's true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book - because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds.

Listen to more hot titles in Karen Marie Moning's Fever series.

    "Terrible"

    Dont do it. I tried twice to listen to this book. Thought the first time I wasnt in the mood for this type of book so i gave it another chance. Mistake, it was just as terrible the second chance i gave it. Save your money/credits.

    Story
    "Unusual action with a touch of dark romance"
    If you could sum up Darkfever in three words, what would they be?

    Very addictive story!


    What other book might you compare Darkfever to and why?

    The Immortal Highlander. It has action with unusual romance pairing with sizzle.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Scenes where Barrons and Mac interact, especially the last chapter which left you wanting so much more from these two characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. Mac's thoughts about her sister were very emotional.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the change in the voice of the narrator as the character changed. It made me feel like I was actually standing there watching the scene play out..

    Story
    "Teenaged drivel"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is a book for teenagers or for those who like vampire type love stories.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Marie Moning again?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joyce Bean?

    Fine for this type of book.


    Any additional comments?

    Not for the more serious minded reader. I tried it under the series offer. Wasn't worth it.

    "not sure at first but so glad I kept going-love it"
    If you could sum up Darkfever in three words, what would they be?

    3 + 1/2---It's a great one


    What other book might you compare Darkfever to and why?

    The closest I can get is Discovery of Witches. Some mystery, some syfi and some romance all in one package.


    What about Joyce Bean???s performance did you like?

    The reader was excellent


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not at first, but that is exactly what I ended up doing all night long....Work the next day was ummm interesting, then I started on the next book in the series.couldn't make all nighters two days in a row but I wanted to.


    Any additional comments?

    So when is the next one out? And we could all use some more Dani...

    Story
    "Hero sounds like a leprechaun who smoked for years"

    I almost could not get through this book because of the way the narrator read Barron's voice. He sounded horrible, like the smoking leprechaun mentioned above. I also found the heroine very annoying because we had to hear about her underwear and nail color, etc. every few minutes. I've got book 2 in paperback so I'll try that one of these days. There are so many people who love this series that I feel like I should persist. But it will be the print version.

    I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.

    Story
    "Great sereis, but--Too Much Adult Content"

    Intriguing characters, engrossing story with twists and turns and plenty of mystery. But I wish I'd never listened to book one. Darkfever was so good that I rushed to my library to get the rest of the series. Unfortunately. Book 3 in the series put some adult images in my head that I never, ever wanted there. Be warned.

    "Dumb"


    This story seems to be pretty interesting but with the southern accent of the reader and the juvinal descriptions of the lead characters hairdo and attire the whole thing just gets too tiresome to continue. I've tried twice because as I said the story is interesting. The long blond ponytail every other page and that awful accent. Just too much.
