She expertly teases you to the point of sobbing, until you’re dying from anticipation. When you think you know what to expect, she completely turns you for a loop and you are left feeling exasperated.

MONING KNOWS HOW TO FUCK WITH ME!

She expertly teases you to the point of sobbing, until you’re dying from anticipation. When you think you know what to expect, she completely turns you for a loop and you are left feeling exasperated. But even when you don’t think you can handle anymore, her writing gnaws at you until you give in to your next fix.

I’ve grown mad over this series and I wouldn’t have it any other way!!

DREAMFEVER was my favourite of the Fever series. Reading about Mac again was such a thrilling ride! She’s definitely one of my favourite heroines in UF. After the ending in Faefever, I nearly lost it. I sprinted to my shelves to grab Dreamfever and read the first two chapters. The emotions rolled through me but still, I found I way to stop myself. I purposely waited until the release of Shadowfever so that I wouldn’t have to wait such a long period between books.With how Dreamfever ended, I’m sooo damn glad I waited this long! Shadowfever is patiently waiting on my ereader at the moment and I am so eager to devour it next!

Mac is such a fierce heroine! I absolutely loved reading from her POV. I loved the differences in writing style when she wasPri-ya and then later on for the rest of the book. I don’t think I can rave about her enough! Love her!

Then there’s Dani whom I fecking adore! I seriously love this kid. She has some of the best lines in the book. Here’s one of my favourites:

“I been wearing sandals a lot, even though it’s cold. What a way to go: death-by-shoe Shade. I grin. I have a black sense of humor. You try living my life, see what color yours turns.” 

The fact that some of the early chapters are from her POV was great! I can’t get enough of her!

Barrons aka the love of my life – I never thought I would be so infatuated with a fictional character like him, but I am. You can probably guess which my favourite scenes with him were. Probably the most interesting thing was when Mac got glimpses into Barrons mind. So worth reading the series just for those little moments.

I could go on forever. Seriously. But I’ll stop for now.

Shadowfever…YOU’RE MINE!!

Favourite Quote:

“I was talking to V’lane, old woman, not you.”
“He doesn’t answer to you.”
“Really?” I laughed. “You think he answers to you?” Only a fool would think a Fae Prince answered to anyone. Especially when one needed one.
“Are you fighting over me, MacKayla? I find this…attractive.” V’lane tossed his golden head. “I have seen this in humans before. It is called jealousy.”
“If that’s what you think, you have a problem interpreting subtle human emotions. It’s not called jealously. It’s called ‘you’re pissing me off’”
“Possessiveness.”
“My ass.”
“Is far more shapely than last I saw it.”
“She’s been working out,” Dani snickered.
“You have no business at it,” I said.
“But Barrons does?” The temperature in the room dropped sharply.

About Karen Marie Moning

“The only other calling I ever felt was an irrepressible desire to be Captain of my own Starship. I was born in the wrong century and it wasn’t possible, so I chose to explore the universe by writing fiction instead. Books are doors to endless adventure.” -KMM

Karen Marie Moning was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1964, the daughter of Anthony R. and Janet L. Moning. The family moved to a self-sustaining farm in Indiana when she was six years old, where she spent her youth raising cows, horses, tobacco, corn and other crops with her sisters and brother.

An alum of the Immaculate Conception Academy, at seventeen she attended Purdue University where she completed a BA in Society & Law, with minors in Philosophy, Creative Writing and Theatre, while working full time as a bartender and computer consultant. She intended to go to law school but after an internship with a firm of Criminal Attorneys, decided against it. For the next decade, she worked in insurance, where she wrote intercompany arbitrations and directed commercial litigation. At the age of thirty, she decided it was time to get serious and do what she’d always wanted to do: write fiction novels.
Beyond the Highland Mist was published in 1999 and nominated for two RITA awards. She then published six more novels in her award-winning HIGHLANDER series, and received the RITA Award in 2001 for The Highlander’s Touch.

In 2004, she began writing the #1 New York Times bestselling FEVER series. The books have been optioned twice for potential franchise development by Twentieth Century Fox and DreamWorks Studios, but the rights are currently held by Moning who has expressed a desire to one day see it as a television series. Her novels have been published in thirty-five countries and are performed on audio by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross. She divides her time between Ohio and Florida and is working on two future projects for Random House Publishing.

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” – Jorge Luis Borges

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

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!
