If you’re a massive fan of Karen Marie Moning like I am, then you may have squeed upon hearing about this rerelease. I love KMM’s Fever series (I really do), but for some reason I enjoy her Highlander series more. I love the passion in them, the darkness and also the hot alpha men who grace the pages of these books.
In INTO THE DREAMING, we get another bonus hottie in Aeden. Jane, a modern- day romance writer and Aeden, a hot Scot fall in love in between realms called the Dreaming. When Jane is transported back in time to save Aeden from the Unseelie King, we really get a glimpse of the undying love they have for one another. For a short story, it’s great and give new readers a chance to see what KMM’s writing was like before. You seriously cannot go wrong with a KMM Scottish highlander.
After this, Karen writes a great piece about her time as a writer. It’s heartfelt and worth the read if you are interested in the inner thoughts of your favorite author.
Karen also gifts her fans with GHOST OF A CHANCE, a formal proposal of a book that was never written. It’s interesting and would make some readers wish this did get written because it does sound like an interesting book.The next two sections are the ones I was most looking forward to. As a big fan of her MacKelter brothers, I was excited to read about the deleted scene from KISS OF THE HIGHLANDER and the Dark Highlander Lite version. These are just little treats for her fans and I think it’s great to see them all in one book.
There is also a teaser for Darkfever for highlander fans who haven’t read her Fever series yet. Also, there is about 10 pages or so about FEVERMOON, the graphic novel adaptation of her Fever series. I’m not quite sure that this part was worth it. It contains both black and white and colored pictures, but not enough for me to say, “Oh my god, I need this now.”
In the end, I enjoyed this. If you’re a KMM fan, you’ll want to check this out. Indulge in your Moning Maniac side.

I’m an 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 write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
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!
