NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * In Karen Marie Moning's latest installment of the epic Fever series, Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada are back--and the stakes have never been higher or the chemistry 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 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 life itself--can save the planet.   But those who seek the mythic song 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 on those war-torn streets, Mac will come face-to-face with her most savage enemy yet: herself. Praise for Feverborn

Review: The Fever series is one of my all time favorite urban fantasy/paranormal series and I can’t deny that the moment a new book gets publish I drop everything else. Feverborn brought back the characters we have come to love so much, Mac, Jada, Barrons, Lor & Ryodan.

While we don’t get to see a lot of action in this installment we however get to see these characters interacting in a whole different level. This book brings a more personal approach to the relationship these characters have created over the years and while they already have set loyalties their alliance is needed if they want to destroy the evil that lurks around Dublin.

Feverborn doesn’t bring any new development between Ryodan & Jada. However, it does focus on Mac’s inability  to  maintain control of the book,  while also trying to find the song of making.  Feverborn does explores these characters loyalties, their relationships and trust. I am a big fan of how this story has evolved, while it doesn’t necessarily bring anything extremely exciting, it does seem slowly develop the story that started with book #1.  While the story itself is dragging a bit the characters have managed to grow immensely. I think from Dani/Jada to Mac we have finally come to the realization that these characters are not one dimensional. Their struggles and and realization that the world around them has change and not necessarily for the best.

The world has been turned upside down since the walls fell, lives have been lost and alliances have been formed. However, with each alliance there is uncertainty and these characters have proven that not everyone can be trusted, not even the closest of allies. I enjoyed this book a lot and I am very pleased to see the quality of the story move from one book to the other, the plot flows naturally and without feeling forced.

The world that Karen M, Moning has created is full of surprises, action, romance and sexual tension. I am pleased to see these characters coming into each other’s world in different manners and with different level of importance, however I would’ve liked to see a bit more development in Jada’s relationship with Ryodan. Overall, Feverborn is a great read and one I highly recommend, so if you are looking for quality, action and some serious sexual tension then look no further, Mac, Barrons, Jada & Ryodan deliver more than many can handle.

Do I recommend this book? YES YES YES
