Review: Feversong


Image from Goodreads

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning returns with the epic conclusion to her pulse-pounding Fever series, where a world thrown into chaos grows more treacherous at every turn. As Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada struggle to restore control, enemies become allies, right and wrong cease to exist, and the lines between life and death, lust and love, disappear completely.

Black holes loom menacingly over Dublin, threatening to destroy the Earth. Yet the greatest danger is the one MacKayla Lane has unleashed from within: the Sinsar Dubh—a sentient book of unthinkable evil—has possessed her body and will stop at nothing in its insatiable quest for power.

The fate of Man and Fae rests on destroying the book and recovering the long-lost Song of Making, the sole magic that can repair the fragile fabric of the Earth. But to achieve these aims, sidhe-seers, the Nine, Seelie, and Unseelie must form unlikely alliances and make heart-wrenching choices. For Barrons and Jada, this means finding the Seelie Queen who alone can wield the mysterious song, negotiating with a lethal Unseelie prince hell-bent on ruling the Fae courts, and figuring out how to destroy the Sinsar Dubh while keeping Mac alive.

This time, there’s no gain without sacrifice, no pursuit without risk, no victory without irrevocable loss. In the battle for Mac’s soul, every decision exacts a tremendous price.

Ok, so if you just happened to stumble across this review, and think the blurb sounds interesting, stop reading and go check out Book 1 in the series – Darkfever.

Man, I can’t believe this series is over! I actually didn’t realize that this was going to be the last book until a week before release!

When Karen Marie Moning releases a book, I buy it automatically. I just love her style, the worlds she creates, everything she writes is amazing. I own all her books. So buying Feversong was a no brainer.

In Feversong we’re back to Mac’s point of view (for most of the book) and that’s actually the way I prefer it. But for the first half of the book, I was getting a little concerned that it was just going to be the same thing, the Sinsar Dubh and Mac fighting it out. I thought to myself, haven’t we already done this, over and over again? But about halfway through things changed (yes!) and I was thrilled. Moning didn’t let me down.

Let’s talk about Dani/Jada a bit. I don’t know guys, I just don’t really like her. I mean, she’s ok, but Mac’s the one I want to *hear* from, not Dani. And I just feel like sometimes what Dani says is the same things I’ve heard Mac express or say. What do you guys think, you like Dani or no? I mean, she has grown on me a bit, but she’s just not my favorite character.

Something I missed in Iced and Burned was the tension between Mac and Barrons. I feel like it was back in Feversong, so I was happy about that.

A lot that happened towards the end of Feversong totally caught me off guard. I LOVE that! I love when I can’t figure out where a book is going (cause where’s the fun when you can?)

Anyways, I do wonder if Moning will write more about Mac and Barrons, but if their story is over, I’ll be content with that.
