Series: Fever # 8
My Rating: 3.75 stars
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.
Feverborn by Karen Marie Moning
I've been a huge fan of this series since its conception. That being said, Feverborn was only a really like for me.
The point of view is constantly changing with a LOT of internal dialog that was, in my opinion, to repetitive.
Then there was the side bars. Like, what was the deal with the internal monologue about a woman's clit have to do with anything? Still not sure about that one, except for the sex aspect.
Of course, I hung on every word. With all series that you love, you can't wait to get more. Well we got more...but it was all over the place. Many times, I was left with the HUH? feeling. Not much really got resolved and BOY are you left hanging.
Bottom line, I had really high expectations. This is the first time that I didn't feel they were met.
Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't of missed this installment. Like a junkie, I crave more...I guess I just wanted more than I got and was left a little bewildered by it all.
