In Karen Marie Moning’s latest installment of the epic #1 New York Times bestselling Fever series, the stakes have never been higher and the chemistry has never been hotter. Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, FEVERBORN is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness and the redemptive power of love.
When the immortal race of the Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making—a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of all life itself—can save the planet.
But those who seek the mythic Song—Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada—must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: The Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among—and within—themselves.
Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And in those war-torn streets, Mac will come face to face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.

Let’s be honest, I read this when it first came out a month ago. Just like the rest of the series, it was a great book. Mac is back as the main character…and I love that! I love Mac! The writing was great, as usual. But the story itself…was missing something. It’s almost as like the climax was the cliffhanger at the end of the book.
I miss the mystery of Barrons. Now that Mac knows a LOT about him, I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel as hot. As much as I love the fact that Moning and the publisher decided to continue the series, I almost wonder if it should have just ended at Shadowfever. I remember reading that book and just thinking, wow, Moning is an amazing author.
And I’m not saying she’s not. She still is. After reading Iced and all that book revealed, I thought, yes! She did it again.
But Feverborn…again was still a great book, but I wanted more. I guess it just didn’t hold up to my high standards and the rest of the series. If there was a few more hundred pages more to the book after the cliffhanger than maybe, but it just ended too soon with nothing accomplished. Kind of like Seinfield, you know? A show about nothing.
But still, if you haven’t read this series, I still highly recommend it. I just hope that the next book blows me away again.
