Publisher's Summary

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh — a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds. In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves. Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world... or destroy it.

    "I can only give it 4"

    I have been waiting for what seems like an eternity for book 5 after than cliff hangers. I see many people have given the books 5 stars .. I don???t think it is a 5 star books ??? 3 1/2 - 4 yes not 5.

    The narration was great, loved the 2 readers but at times I really thought it was a little over done and melodramic. Glad they used the same narrators as book 4. I think the book could have been edited down somewhat which would cut the listens down to less that 19 hours. I felt is was a little long.

    KMM did have quite some twist and turns in the books .. just when I thought I figured it out she blew that idea right away.

    If you are getting this books make sure you have either read or listened to the 1st 4.

    "Not What I Expected"

    I am not familiar with this author and didn't realize this was part of a series. However, opening the story to her hysterical ranting about killing someone she thought was immortal was a bit annoying. I was sorry to have wasted one of my credits on this selection.

    "Worst audiobook EVER"

    I've never shut off an audiobook less than a 1/4 of the way through, but this one had me wanting to turn it off five minutes in, I'm actually proud I lasted as long as I did. If I had to hear the full name of her dead lover one more time I was afraid my ears would begin bleeding! This was only paralleled by the ridiculous amount of time spent on the protagonist's laser-like focus on her feelings about EVERYTHING. The over the top dramatic scenes were exactly like listening to the weird girl in high school who haunted the drama department and who was more than a little out of touch with reality. Poorly written and the narrator didn't help, this was beyond bad.

    "Good, not great"

    This was a pretty good ending for the series, but not stellar. Too much internal dialogue and introspection really slowed the pacing and added page count. I fast-forwarded over an hour or more total of this type of thing once it started getting too tedious. Still many questions were answered and the last 1/4 of the book was the best--just when you thought it was going to end one way, something else happened or was revealed.

    "Oh so delicious!"

    This audio book was FANTASTIC! It was amazing! I think this is one of the best fantasy series since Harry Potter. The book series is wonderful, no doubt deserving 5 stars, but the narration with Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante just made this story perfect. If I could rate it 6 stars, you betcha I would have! This was the type of book I stayed up really late trying to find a good part to put it down so I could sleep (there is never a good part to put it down) and would put on as soon as I would wake up. This needs to go on the must read list- no doubt about it.

    "Love this series!!"

    The new "fever" book is fabulous! It picks up right where the last book left off and was as entertaining and unpredictable as ever. The narrorators are the same as the previous audiobook versions and of course did a wonderful job. Definately worth your credit.

    "A little rambling"

    This was an excellent book. After reading the others in this series which all end in cliff hangers I decided to listen to this one. Excellent narration. I gave it only 4 stars because a lot of the book is just the rambling thoughts of the main character. Several times I would be thinking OK get on with it all ready! Overall very good book.

    "The last and best fever book"

    I have been waiting for over a year for this book to come out and answer all my questions. I absolutely love this book. I have listened to it once and plan on reading it on my nook and listening again. The twists and turns keep you guessing to the end. There are still some things that will leave you curious but not to the maddening point. I feel the wrap up put a bow on it was perfect. Every time I though I had it figured out, some new twist would come up and through my theory out the window. Enjoy everyone. Your in for a wild ride.
