Publisher's Summary

He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought - and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V'lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister's diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac's greatest enemy delivers a final challenge....
It's an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth - about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons...and about the world she thought she knew.

Ready for the 5th

This 4th installment in the Fever series overall was great. I loved Phil G. as Barrons and the other male voices, I had a tougher time with Natalie R and wish they would've used Joyce B with him instead as she is "Mac" to me and I loved her accent. Overall I don't think this book was quite as good as the others. I loved the first three quarters but found the last quarter to drag some and found my mind wandering some and wondering what the point was. The cliff hanger like usual is a little irritating. It still would have been as good if she had told us who it was (don't want to spoil if you haven't read). This overall is probably my favorite series I've ever read, even more then the Sookie books which are hard to beat. I'll have to relisten again before the 5th and final book comes out!

Writing still good, narrators MUCH better

I enjoyed the first three books on audiobook, but I will admit I was annoyed by the narrator. Mack was portrayed as just a little too whiny for me to love the audio book. But the writing was excellent, the plot twists were nice, the characters, intriguing. In the latest edition of Moning's Fever series, someone made the decision not only to change the female narrator, but to add a male narrator for the male voices. I was delightedly surprised. Suddenly, the characters took on new life. They were simply spell binding. While all of the books are good, this one stands out in my mind and I have to think at least part of that was the excellent narration. Bravo to Ms. Ross and Mr. Gigante and of course, bravo to Ms. Moning. Thank you for enjoyable "read."

I miss Joyce Bean

At first I thought Joyce Bean's narration for the first three Fever books to be over the top, but now I miss her. Natalie Ross just doesn't do the characters justice. Her voice for Mac sounds like Peg Bundy from Married with Children rather than a young southern girl. I am, however, happy with Phil Gigante voicing the men...

Otherwise, the book is a good listen, especially if you've read the first three in the series. While cliff hangers abound and the relationships are left in an unsatisfactory state, it is still entertaining. We will all have to wait for the final book to see if the time commitment has been worth it.

LOVE THIS SERIES

I love this series so much I am sorry the next book will be the last. While Natalie Ross is a good narrator I hate the fact that they changed the narrator in the middle of the series, Joyce Bean was excellent she was MAC. I truly enjoyed her energy and her wonderful southern accent. Why didn't they have her and Phil G. together that would have been great. Ms. Ross had no southern accent and mispronounced the name Rowena repeatedly (about 200 times). When inconsistencies like this occur I wonder whether the audiobook producer listened to the previous books. I dislike Narrator changes in the middle of series but regardless I absolutely love these stories. I would just like to see it redone with Joyce Bean.

a little odd

While I am a huge Karen Marie Moning fan, her fever series is a bit odd. I don't mind that so much, but she is dragging it out so long that I have since lost interest. By the time you get to this book, your ready for it to be over, but wait, there's more. Really? Can't we just move on to another series already? While loosely connected to her Highlander series, this is far removed as it gets from those books. If your really into fantasy romance than you will probably like this series.
PS. love Phil Gigante.......he is to ears, what porn is to eyes.

Awesome Audio but plot&ending are frustrating

The audiobook was off-the-charts excellent! The 2 new narrators are amazing. They each give very distinct voices to all the characters (so you can always tell who is talking), full of emotion & truly bring them to life. It's like a live performance privately done for you. Unlike the prior female narrator, the men are now virile & sexy, & Mac now actually speaks at a believable pace (not so slow it annoys you) & with a real sounding southern accent not some overdone "thang" from a highschool play. The terrifying chainsaw voice for the Dark Book will scare you to your core! The interplay of the characters & timing of the actors is intense.

BTW, some reviewers on here have wrongfully critiqued the new female reader for mispronouncing Rowena's name or pronouncing it two different ways in the audio. The author specifically directed her in the pronunciations of "Rowena" & Ms. Ross says it right! The reason it varies at times is because the character Mac does mispronounce it at times, it's part of the plot.

As for the plot, (I'll try to write this generally without any plot spoilers, but it'll be harder to explain) I must be honest & say that I was frustrated & a lil disappointed with this book. I have to agree with others who have said this series should have been at most a 3 or 4 book series for solid content. There was little plot development this time. Unlike past books, this one is such an excerpt that you probably cannot just pick it up & read it as a stand alone without having read the others. You'd be totally lost. Frankly, even if you read the others, this one is so fantastical & jumps about, it's still a bit confusing. While I have been totally enjoying & loving the Fever series...after waiting so long for this book & knowing it'll be a year or more till the next, this book wasn't worth the wait.

Addictive series

Any additional comments?

I usually dislike when a series changes the narration after several books.....but I actually enjoyed the new narrators, with the addition of Phil Gigante. There was a slight lessening of the southern

Adore this series!!

I have become a huge fan of this terrific series. I can't get enough of Mac and Barrons. Sigh. I love these narrators.

If Phil Gigante would read the phonebook to me, I'd melt. Okay, I want Phil Gigante to be my boyfriend.

Awful Sound Quality

While I will get over my disappointment that Joyce Bean isn't the voice of this book in the series, the audio quality is simply awful.

I've listened to each book in succession (on the same equipment) with little break between books, and the sound quality on this recording is not even close to that of books 1-3.

How disappointing overall, and especially given this is an AUDIO book site.

Great series, upgraded narration

I do really enjoy this series, and this book is well-written and well-narrated. The addition of a male voice has really improved listening pleasure. My only complaint is that there is not yet a resolution to this story after 4 books. I feel cheated.
