Book Description

He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.
When MacKayla Lane receives a page torn from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil that it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shapeshifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, a lethal Fae prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man of deadly secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Karen Marie Moning's Dreamfever.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Urban Celtic fantasy slides down a dark, depressing slope in bestseller Moning's third Fever thriller (after Bloodfever), centered on a hunt for the Sinsar Dubh, a black magic book more than a million years old. As All Hallow's Eve in Dublin approaches, the walls between the human world and Faery verge on collapse. Can former Georgia peach MacKayla Mac Lane prevent a total invasion of the Unseelie Court? Originally intent on avenging her sister Alina's murder committed by Unseelie Lord Master, Mac's now a power-player in the war between the Seelie (good Fae) and Unseelie (bad Fae), after learning she's a Celtic sidhe-seeker who can sniff out OOPS (Objects of Power). Meanwhile, the attractive V'Lane, a death-by-sex Fae, wants Mac's help in securing the Sinsar Dubh for his Seelie queen, Aoibheal. At the end, erotic shocks await Mac in Dublin's vast Dark Zone, setting up feverish—if wary—expectations for the next installment. (Sept.)

From School Library Journal

The third installment in Moning's popular Fever series (Darkfever; Bloodfever) finds sidhe-seer MacKayla Lane continuing to adjust to her powers and her new life in Dublin. Though she now knows who killed her sister Alina, she's no closer to the vengeance she craves, and the information she collects about the fae and their relics leads to further questions. Unsure of whom she can trust, Mac further develops her sidhe-seeing skills, taking some unexpected detours into darker territory along the way. Secondary characters from the earlier novels, including sidhe-seer Rowena and "death-by-sex" fae V'Lane, are prominently featured, and there's plenty of action and sexual tension keeping the battle between good and evil moving forward. An abrupt cliff-hanger ending and a number of unresolved plot points ensure that the series will continue. This series is a good bet for readers of Nora Roberts's paranormal-tinged titles, who will appreciate Mac's tough yet tender character. Recommended for all public libraries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intrigued but impatient September 27, 2008
I can agree with both sides of the reviews that have been coming up over the last eleven days. Like most of you, I managed to finish the 315 pages in little to no time at all. I took the warnings about reading at a slower pace to heart, but the pace of the book was such that it was hard to find a stopping point where you would be able to walk away for a few hours or days. I am not looking forward to another long wait for the next book in the series, and I am also irritated with the way things have been left. However, this is the third book of five. You can't expect great things to magically happen all at once with no serious consequence. I'm not agreeing with the ending written, but Mac herself recognizes that tithes are sometimes paid in blood. I would highly recommend that anyone contemplating this series read "Into the Dreaming" first. The references to ITD are increasingly obvious in FF. If you are an impatient reader, take the advice of most and wait for the series to be complete. It is well worth the read, and Moning is still one of my favorite authors to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's the problem; the reason for such extreme reviews. September 27, 2008
Most of Moning's books are connected, but each book was a self-contained story with a happy ending in the spirit of romance. When she went into fiction rather than the romance genre things got violent and ugly...the sex got rough, something you can't do in a regular historical romance.

The Fever series is one story split into 5 books and Moning doesn't leave us in a happy place at the end of each book the way a romance does. Things get really ugly in FaeFever, but I have no doubt that in the end Moning will give me what I want... sex with Jericho Barrens.

Moning hasn't written a male love interest this ruthless, hard-hearted, nasty or indifferent before. I suspect Barrens wrote the diary pages Mac is reading, if so he has some terrible demons of his own that likely are exactly the kind of demons Mac is now going to have. The horrific ending to FaeFever is exactly what Barrens needs to snap him into shape and admit his love for Mac.

This story telling is different than Monings other books because you only get Mac's side of the story and therefore no reassurance about Jericho's intentions or feelings. It's an excellent series, but if I have to wait a year for book 4 I'll scream! Karen...I'm sure you look at these reviews...PLEASE don't make us suffer! :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Impatient! September 26, 2008
By CeeCee
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I thought the first couple of chapters were a little slow, but the rest of the book made up for it. Honestly, the only thing upsetting about this series is the endings to each of the Fever Series. It always ends when you're just starting to get somewhere. It's a little frustrating to have to wait for each new series. That's a year per book which means I won't be able to see the end of Mac's story for another two years!! While I know this keeps readers at the edge of their seats, it's a lot to ask of a reader to get excited about a story and then wait for the next installment. Maybe if there was only one more book to Mac's story then I wouldn't complain so much, but Moning has two more in the Fever Series. It's not like Harry Potter where each book had a complete ending. Moning's Fever Series stops incompletely because the story isn't finished. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

2.0 out of 5 stars I just don't know November 7, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the first books that Karen wrote. In fact I enjoyed them so much I shared them with friends and with my mother. But I find myself a little uncomfortable sharing this series. Okay, So the first two were okay, I enjoy the story line and the mythical creatures, but really wish we could get on with the romance and stop dragging it out so much. It is seriously torture to keep being left with these cliffhangers. Why not just write one big book and put it out all at once and spare the readers the drag out.

Finally though I have to say I have a major problem with this series, and that is the seeming romanticizing of rape. It's not cool, it's not sexy and it's never acceptable. So the sex has been edgier here and there and I was saying well okay in the first two books with the edgier sex implications it was a little harsh but not so bad. But I am sickened [Spoiler] that this series ended with a gang bang. It was upsetting and unsettling, I didn't enjoy reading it. Even if you want to argue that its part of the story line and it will change...blah, blah, blah and it won't be treated as acceptable. Did the book really have to end that way? Yeah, that's what I wanted to fall asleep with on my mind.

So while I had held out hope that things would get better as the story progressed. The last rape scene has me totally turned off and I think I'm done with this story line. It wasn't sexy, it wasn't sex, it was rape. I'm just not cool with that in my stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hood winked October 8, 2008
By Kay Tee
It would seem that she submitted the entire series to her publishers up front & they decided to divide the book into 5 parts to make some money. Well the first 2 were great, I love Mac & Barrons, but this book was a joke. Yes, you find a lot of info out which seems to be why this book was done, it was an encyclopedia of info, but no action or intrigue. As for what happens to Mac in the end ---your just left hanging like an idiot. It was a short & fast read & now they will make you wait another long year before the next one comes. Don't waist your time, wait until the entire series is out before reading anymore. I have decided not to read anymore until she ends the series.

RAPE- New trends in sci-fi romance???
It bothered me also. It spoiled the whole book. It is true that some of the more well liked authors have had their leading female characters raped, but they were nothing like the gang rape portrayed in FaeFever. It is bad enough to put in a rape scene, when it is a one on one rape, but gang... Read More

Nothing definitive yet. But you can go to KMM's website and read some of the speculation there. I used to read the ideas concerning Jericho but my brain went on overload from all the possibilities. I had to stop.

Is Jericho NOT Mac's HEA?
Mac is definitely relating in the past tense. The question is though, at what point in time? The next book is supposed to tell us Jericho's point of view, so I don't think Mac will be telling the story any more. We don't know right now where Mac's present time is in relation to the future... Read More
