MacKayla Lane is one of my favourites UF heroines! Her narration is so unique and distinctly hers that I find any other changes in the POV to be annoying (No offence, Dani). I just get so into Mac’s head that reading from another POV throws me off. I adore her courage and her resiliency. Despite the fact that who she thought she was in the past was all wrong, she still stays true to herself in the most important ways. And I couldn’t ask for more in a heroine. Mac kicks ass!
Barrons, you infuriating man! Sometimes I just want to maul him for being so incredibly secretive, but then later I always find myself giving in and loving him despite his mysterious ways. His beast explains his animal magnetism and makes him that much more irresistible. How Mac can keep her hands off him is a mystery to me! And his secret? I didn’t see that coming AT ALL. It’s no wonder he kept it all under wraps this entire time!
And my girl Dani! I fecking lost it when I found out that she was Alina’s murderer! What the hell. A murderer. At thirteen.
All because of that stupid lady, Rowena. I’ve always hated this old hag. Manipulating Dani was the last straw for me. Die! What KMM does is crazy! You think Mac is talking to Isla, her “MOTHER” but no, she’s Ro – ha! Gotcha! It’s the Sinsar Dubh! My head is still reeling from all this. I couldn’t possibly understand this world even if I wanted to.
Then all this time I hated LM for all the damage he caused. For Mac’s rape, for supposedly killing Alina. But he really did love Alina, didn’t he? That was another thing I loved about this book. There was heart and hope even through all the dark times. Mac’s grief in the beginning is enough to bring on the tears.
Then there’s V’lane /Cruce – *rubs temples*
And Christian – I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him again in the new series. Please let it be about him! PLEASE! Lots of unanswered questions with him…
But most of all, the Fever world is what captivated me from the beginning. So intensely mysterious and alluring, I found myself mesmerized by KMM’s worldbuilding. I would say I’d love to live in this world, but I really don’t. I’m way too chickenshit to live a second in Mac’s shoes.
Nevertheless, I’m saddened to have Mac’s journey end…for now. But I will definitely be picking up this series again and again!
STAY TO THE LIGHTS!
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
