Every time I say the word “BARRONS”, mass hysteria and swooning usually follow. ~ Under the Covers
Okay, what just happened? I feel like I’ve just been bitch slapped. Several. Times.
How can Moning end Faefever like that? I am totally at a loss for words. Everything within those last 50 pages happened so fast, I can barely wrap my head around it.
I found myself racing to my bookshelf and grabbing Dreamfever to find out what the hell is going on here! Somehow I found the will to stop myself from reading because I just couldn’t believe that ending.
I found that Faefever was a little slow sometimes. Moning has a knack for building scenes up and then just when you think something great or terrible or anything remotely shocking or whatever is about to happen, she cuts it off there and you end up feeling deflated and frustrated. This happens countless times within the book and there are times when I just want to bang my head, throw this book out the window and yell, Why, Moning Why!?!
But then I go back after cooling down and keep reading, because that’s what happens when you read a Fever book. Moning is just so skilled at teasing us with little glimpses and then leaving it at that. And for that, I may cry.
Now on to the better things about this book…
Let’s face it. I read the Fever series for Barrons. And I’m sure I’m not the only female out there who feels this way. Every time I say the word “BARRONS”, mass hysteria and swooning usually follow. Every time I read the name Barrons in the book, I sit up in my chair a little straighter and devour the pages where he graces us with his presence because I feel like there’s just not enough of him. The suspense and unanswered questions are killing me, just as they are with Mac. I need some answers!
And speaking of Mac, I think she’s just as strong as she was in the previous books. She’s such a smart, patient girl. Her contacts with V’lane and Inspector Jayne are paying off and I think she’s dealing well with her grief. What I love about her is the fact that even though unexpected and dangerous things are happening all around her, she still finds the time to remember who she was before all this happened. She is still MacKayla Lane in her heart. And I just love the MACHALO scene.
To be honest, I’m kind of scared to read Dreamfever. After this rollercoaster ride, I’m afraid of what I might find in the next book. But I need some damn answers. And I need them soon.
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, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then 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 planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
