Only one week to go until Dreamfever's release! I listened to the audio book of Faefever last week and I did enjoy it more than I thought I would. Based on some of the negative reviews that came out last year I wasn't expecting to like it very much but it took me by surprise and sucked me right back into Mac's world. I do wish there had been more development of the Mac and Barrons relationship. It seems like it should have gotten farther along than it has by now. I did like the way Mac and the sidhe-seers interacted more and their relationship moved forward. The ending was considered controversial by some readers, many disliked it but it didn't have the same impact on me as I thought it would. I think it was due to the fact that I knew what was going to happen and have know since Faefever came out last year. So time and distant had diluted the shock for me.

Dreamfever synopsis from author's website ~

*Spoilers if you haven't read the first 3 books*

MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the erotic Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master's spell. In the New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning's stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin's battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest-and most erotically charged-adventure of her life.

He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought-and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V'lane vie for her body and soul, as she rallies the sidhe-seers to fight an impossible battle, and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac's greatest enemy delivers a final challenge...

It's an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth-about herself, and about the world she thought she knew.


  1. Oh yes, squeeing like a fan girl!!

  2. I'm heading to Borders this weekend - hoping to get lucky. :)

  3. I think you should check the bookstore now. I went to the bookstore today and I saw it, Dreamfever, and I have to say, I was really surprised. Perhaps it's not on the restricted release date list?

    How come books I highly anticipate takes forever? LOL :P But books I don't, I keep running into? :P

  4. Thanks nath! I'm going to the store tomorrow, can definitely make a stop at Borders.

    You're book buying journeys are the stuff of legends. LOL

  5. Leslie, I'm looking forward to reading your review on Dreamfever. Based on my personal disappointment with Faefever, I decided to wait to read Dreamfever... so, I'm not running to get it, lol!

    RE: Faefever--I also was not disappointed with the end. My disappointment came in the repetitiveness of the book (most of the book was dedicated to repeating details already given in the 1st two installments),the lack of movement in the story, & Mac's regressive behavior (usage of bad jugment). I felt that the few new details given in this book could have been included in Bloodfever. I did a re-read of the 1st 2 books and it was...Frustrating!

    By Dreamfever's synopsis it looks as if the story might finally start to move along. :)

  6. Hils ~ totally understand about the repetitiveness of Faefever. The lack of movement IMO was with Mac and Barrons - it just hasn't gone anywhere. They were apart for what seemed like a lot of the book. I'm hoping there will be substantial progress made with their relationship in Dreamfever.

  7. LOL, let me know if you find it :)

  8. I was a little frustrated with Mac's lack of trust with Barrons, and what felt like a backward step in their relationship. However, on the whole I really enjoyed Faefever. I was completely unaware of how it was going to end, the cliffhanger, and the resultant controversy when I listened to the audiobook a couple of weeks ago. I think that part of why I'm ok with how it ended is because my wait for Dreamfever is so short. It would have killed me to wait months and months to see what happens to Mac!

  9. After what Mac saw Barron’s do w/the mirror I almost wished she had confronted him about it. But that’s cause I’m dying to know what he is! LOL I can understand her not trusting him since she seems to have more and more questions about him than answers. But between Barrons and V'lane - I would definitely choose Barrons to trust.

    I waited on Faefever because like you I didn’t want a long wait between it and Dreamfever.

    No luck at Borders today - hopefully this weekend. :)
