NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER


I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .
 
In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More slow-moving than the first book 3.5 stars. This is the second book in this series. Mac is learning more about what she is, while trying to ward off Unseelies, more and more of whom seem to be appearing in Dublin. She has people who want her alive, so will help her when needed. Mac also finds more people like her, and she hopes they can help her learn more. This was good, but I thought more slow-moving than the first book, although it did pick up at the end and ended on a slight cliffhanger

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Adventure continues. . . The second novel continues right where the first novel leaves off. Mac doesn’t really know who out of the major players to really trust. She discovers a little more about where she comes from and goes through some pretty fatal experiences. Good second novel in this series. You’re starting to really get to know who all the major players in the novel are. I still believe that this novel could do without all the over the top sexually tidbits that they throw in. Good story, good characters, good pace, it just flows very well. It’s written very well and stokes the fire for wanting to know more about the characters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The adventure continues with Mac and Barrons Mac was your typical everyday girl, but all that changed one night in Dublin when she saw my first Fae and got dragged into a world of ancient secrets and immortal beings called Fae (Seelie and Unseelie). In her fight to stay alive and find out who murdered her sister, Mac must find a million-year-old book of the blackest magic called the Sinsar Dubh which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by a caste of good and evil surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust. Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men. V’lane is an immortal Fae Prince and Jericho Barrons who is a man as irresistible as he is dangerous. Though who will she trust? or will it be neither? Now the walls between the two are coming down and Mac is the only thing that stands between them. As the Unseelie are to make their escape into the human and forever change the race of humans

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was worth continuing the series!! So after the first book I was a little hesitant to continue with the series because I found the main character, Mac, fairly annoying, but I am glad I did. I was glad to see that in this book she had matured greatly. There is still a little of the old Mac in there, but she is far more tolerable, and I am even starting to like her. Reflecting back, I think maybe it was good to have her as she was in the first book so that you can see how she develops. The story was exciting and full of action enough to make me ok with the fact that you are left with another cliffhanger. PROS: Great character development, page turning story, and you start getting to know other characters a little better, like Barrons and V'Lane. CONS: Mac can still be a little annoying, but much improved (and it wouldn't have made sense to change her completely anyways), cliffhanger ending (if you don't like them) OVERALL: Better than the first, definitely worth the read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Getting better... Although this book was better than the first of the series I still am not completely hooked. I love Barrons, he is arrogant and sexy and possibly a little jealous? Is that from wanting Mac romantically or keeping her as an OOP detector all to himself? Either way Barrons is the best part of the book. There are a few new characters in this book and a bit more information comes out but of course more questions as well. We get to see a bit of a new direction from V’Lane as well. On to book 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cave Scene!!! Bloodfever is the second book in Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series. It is your typical second book in an Urban Fantasy series. Book one usually sets up the world and its players. Book two is typically a transition book. The book that reminds us of how the world works in the series, shows us how the hero or heroine has developed from book one and guides the reader in the direction that the series is ultimately going to take her. Yes, Bloodfever is your classic book two, but with Karen’s talented mark on it, it also feels like so much more. I can’t believe how much of this book I had forgotten! And important stuff too! It’s embarrassing actually. It’s making me really glad I decided to re-read this series before its big finale. (OMG only 39 more days until Shadowfever! *super squee*) Even though the Unseelie Fae are ultimately the evil do-ers in this series, each book focuses on a specific bad guy. I remembered who it was but I found him even more disgusting this time around. He is just nasty. Poor, poor Mac… Mac is still her new kick ass self in this book. She knows she is stuck. She knows that she is being used by V’Lane and by Barrons and by pretty much everyone else that crosses her path, but she is trying to be less of a pushover about it. She is trying to regain some control over her own life. I like seeing Mac like this. And I can’t wait to follow her on the rest of her journey and be reminded of other things I really should have remembered but forgot…and made to feel like an idiot because of it. *sigh* You see more of V’Lane in Bloodfever. He is trying a different approach with Mac this time around. He is really trying to be her friend. I love how he tries to humanize himself for Mac. It’s quite comical actually, in a creepy sexy sort of way. Of course, there is lots of Barrons in this book. Have I ever mentioned how I love Barrons as a character? Well in case you all missed it, I love Barrons as a character! He is the same in this book as he was in the last. Arrogant in the best of ways, smug in the sexiest of ways and tender in the most surprising of ways. And do I detect a slight hint of jealousy a time or two?! We may see some cracks in his façade once in a blue moon in this book but we still don’t get any closer to figuring out who Barrons is exactly or what he is exactly. At the back of the book, Karen has included the Glossary from Mac’s Journal. I think, when it comes to Barrons, Mac says it best in her journal. She writes: “BARRONS, JERICHO: I haven’t the faintest fecking clue. He keeps saving my life. I suppose that’s something.” You meet a new character that will play quite an important role not only in the books from now on but also in Mac’s life. We meet Dani, the 15 year old wonder sidhe-seer. She is a cute character who won’t curse for real so she says “feck”. A lot. Definitely one of the most likeable characters in this series. And through Dani, the mystery of the “crazy old lady” gets answered…sort of. But don’t let that excite you too much. Because for every one thing that may get answered in this book, 100 new questions come up! And you think I’m kidding… Here is a good example of things that make you go “huh?” in this book: “I had an overwhelming desire to start screaming at everyone to run, to leave, to do…something…I couldn’t remember…something that lurked somewhere in my genetic memory…a thing we’d learned to do…long ago…a ritual, dark thing…we’d paid a terrible price…it had been our greatest shame…we’d made ourselves forget.” Okay, maybe it doesn’t quite make you say “huh?” In actuality, it makes you say “WTF?!” I really do appreciate how Chapter 14 is basically a recap of what has happened so far and what you should be thinking about. It helped keep me focused and it helped me ask the right questions instead of being inundated by a million other questions I seem to be making up as I go along in this series. And we still get some philosophical moments I love so much in this series. These are two of my favorites: “You can’t go forward if you’re looking backward, Mac, Daddy always said. You run into walls that way.” “Lies roll of us. It’s the truths we work hardest to silence.” Before I go, I’m just going to say one more quick thing. The cave scene! That is all I’m saying. Okay…I won’t leave you like that. I’ll add one more thing and that is I read that scene twice in a row. Bloodfever really keeps the story going along nicely and keeps you wanting more. Basically, it’s the perfect second book. Faefever is book 3 and I remember that one. And boy oh boy I can’t wait to read it again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've Got the Fever! After a shaky start, I can now say I have officially caught the fever! Picking up where the first book left off, Bloodfever eclipses Darkfever in more ways than one. The book begins with Mac still recovering from her injuries in meeting with the Lord Master. Although she is finally starting to feel at home at Barrons Books and Baubles, she soon starts seeing a spectral figure that bares an eerie resemblance to death. Conflict escalates when Mac is questioned by the Garda (Irish police) for murder and Derek O'Bannion shows up at the store looking for his dead brother. However, Mac finds some hope in discovering more about her abilities when she runs into another sidhe-seer. But when Mac is kidnapped by an enemy she thought was dead, she is forced to make a decision that may have terrible consequences for her in the future. I liked this version of Mac far more than the last version. In the book, Mac says that there are two Macs, girly Mac and savage Mac. In Bloodfever, girly Mac takes a backseat. She continues her transformation into grown-up Mac as she begins to grapple with the seriousness of her situation. Yet, she still retains some her southern charm. I get quite a kick out of her telling Barrons he is a "petunia". However, Barrons is just as mysterious as ever. Throughout the entire book I was so frustrated because when you think you have it figured out, Moning adds a new twist. I'm just confused about Barrons as I ever was. However, I have my theories about what Barrons could be. Also, I enjoyed the added sexual chemistry of Barrons and Mac's relationship. While the sparks between the two is evident in the first book, their attraction is undeniable in Bloodfever. I'm still keeping up hope that these two will end up together in the end. Along with throwing new curve balls into Barrons true identify, Moning also adds some new twists to the story. While some plot lines get wrapped, new ones are introduced. As a result, I am now hooked on this series. I thoroughly enjoy Moning's writing style and found that I finished the book faster than I wanted to. I'm lucky that I can just pick Faefever right off my bookshelf. Actually, that is what I'm going to do right now. Watch out Barrons, here I come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Mac the things you get into! Mac is still settling in to her new world, and recovering from her resent injuries incurred from battling Malluce and The Master. Malluce, the vampire that was working for The Master, is now one less enemy to worry about since his timely death. The battle between Barron and V’Lance for Mac still continues. They both have saved her life, but Mac trusts neither of them. The two men are only helping her out because she can find the Sinsor Dubh. Both men offer Mac bracelets that would allow them to find Mac if she needs help, Mac turns them both down. Mac worries that once the book is found that she will become expendable. Malluce is only partially dead and kidnaps Mac to get his revenge. Malluce was part Fae because he was eating some of them, which gives you their strength, speed and healing. When Mac stabbed him with the Fae knife it started killing him slowly. He torturers her until she breaks. Mac thinks that maybe she should have accepted the tracking brackets that were offered to her. (Nothing like hindsight) Thinking that all is lost, Mac can’t believe her eyes when Barron shows up and breaks her out. Unfortunately Barron’s arrival is a little too late, Mac is dying. At the last minute Mac chooses to eat some of the Fae meat that Malluce has been eating. She gets stronger and heels, and heads out for her own revenge on Malluce. ***SPOILER*** Mac gets her revenge but at what cost? She can’t detect the Fae objects after eating the Fae meet. Mac can’t trust Barron, he tattooed her with a tracking tattoo against her wishes. She can’t trust V’Lane because his bracelet would never have come off and the police are starting to follow Mac all around Dublin. More importantly she seems to be losing herself. The only good thing is that the Fae affects wear off, but Mac is in so deep she needs an excavator to get her out. Bring on book three! Book two has the series getting better and better. All the blocks for the series are laid in book one, and this just takes off from there. Fast, paced and exciting. If only Barron and Mac could trust each other enough to talk, half of what Mac gets into would never happen. Gotta love to hate it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Series! The story continues with Mac in Ireland. Now Mac knows what she is and that her sister was after a very dark and dangerous book. Now Mac continues to hunt down the book with Jericho as a partner. She must learn how to kill fairy and resist V’lane. This is all I am going to say because I don’t want to ruin any surprises this book contains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hooked on fever series! This starts off where the first book leaves off, so you need to read this series in order. I love the characters and the little love triangle between V'lane, Barrons and Mac. Mac never seems to get a break, things just seem to go from bad to worse for her, but she is determined to keep fighting. You won't want to put it down once you start reading and just when you think you have an idea as to what might happen next, Karen surprises you and just makes the story that much more interesting. I love how Karen has written this series, you really feel like you are right there with Mac.

Rated out of 5 by from Can't Get Enough! I really enjoyed Darkfever but Bloodfever has totally captured my interest in the world of the Fae. While reading this book I felt like I was in the story right along side Mac. I felt more personally invested in the story and characters in this installment than I did in the first. This is one of those special books that I struggled to put down and ended up finishing much quicker than I intended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So maybe I was wrong When I first read Darkfever I thought it wasn't very good. Problem was when I bought it, I also bought Bloodfever. So after a year of gathering dust on my shelf I decided to attempt to read it. And guess what? I actually like it...a lot. Mac is still a bottle brunette, still an OOP detector and still searching for the person who murdered her sister. The only people she can turn to are Jericho Barnes, V'Lane(the fae prince) and a new player Rowena. The trouble with these three is that they can be trusted as about as far as Mac can throw them. And I was very excited to see the guys from the Highlander series slightly mentioned and the introduction of Christian MacKelter. Squeal! I will be getting the rest of the books in this series and can't wait to read them. Also, a huge apology to the Fae fans I offended with my Darkfever review. I now see the error of my ways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mac Attack! This is the second book in the fever series. Mac Lane is embracing her new persona as a sidhe seer and null. She is learning her strengths but finding herself in sticky situations. First, Mac wakes up in a building full of Shades. Second, Mac notices the return of an angry O’Bannion, with vengeance on the brain. Third, Prince V’Lane is up to his tricks and scams. Fourth, Mac’s dad returns and demands that Mac leave Barrons and Ireland. Read more at: http://justkickinit.ca/2009/08/bloodfever-by-karen-marie-moning/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Gets Better and Better Bloodfever is the second book in Moning's Fever series. Picking up where Darkfever left off, it is as good or better than the first. I am well and truly hooked by this series. After travelling to Ireland, Southern belle, MacKayla Lane, has learned she is a Sidhe-seer - she has an inborn talent that allows her to see through the glamor that the Fae use to walk among humans. She can also sense magical objects and use them. Having teamed up with the mysterious and brooding Barrons to help him find the Sinsar Dubh, an ancient Fae book, her life has taken a turn onto the dark side. In this book, Mac continues to learn more about herself and what she is capable of doing. Using the spearhead she 'acquired' a.k.a. stole, from a (now deceased) Irish mobster, she has been personally making a dent in the unseelie population. She also continues in her role as OOP detector for Barrons (OOPs are objects of power). I thoroughly enjoy Moning's chatty writing style and she has captured Mac beautifully. The story unravels at a quick pace - I was done before I realized it. It kept me riveted until the end and left me dying for more. Luckily the next book, Faefever is already out and Dreamfever is due for release this month (Aug 2009).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A big improvement over the first book! I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who’d get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic. When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I’ve learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it…. MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets. In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh–a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious. For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.… This is the 2nd book in Moning's Fae series. Again, in the romance section, but aside from a scene here or there, this book is no more romance driven than Armstrong's, Chance's or Briggs' books. So as far as I'm concerned, should fall into the supernatural/fantasy category. This book was far better than the first, and I'll rate it at a 4/5. There is so much more character growth within our main character Mac, and although the information is sparse, we also get to see a little more into who Jericho Barrons is. Mac comes into her own in this book, coming to terms that she's going to have to fight if she wants to live. She's acting smarter (some of the time) and making better decisions that are in her own best interest (well, better than the first book). The reality is this girl, at 22, who's had her entire life turned upside down in a couple of short months, still has a lot to learn. I find the fact that she has a hard time swearing, endearing of her. She group up in a family with strong values and opinions of how women should and should not act, a little 1950's, but not so much that it's unreasonable. I've grown to like Mac much more than I did in book 1 and I don't find myself nearly as critical of her character. As I said, she's grown a lot... Within the book, she refers to herself as a part of a chess game, with key players, including herself - whom everyone seems to be wanting a piece of thanks to her rare abilities, Jericho Barrons, the Lord Master, V'Lane, Rowena and others. Along with players she's just realizing exist. Then there's the pawns, the unseelies and the shades. This kid's up against a lot and she's starting to understand. A great book... once your through the first, the rest is smooth sailing... I'm anxiously awaiting my opportunity to read FaeFever (book 3).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible This book is a complete waste of money. I find the main character, Mac, to be extremely childish. I don't want to know the most expensive dress she will ever have will be the one her "Daddy" buys her! ... or the fact that she can't use swear words! ... this character is supposed to be 22?? ... My God, she sounds like she's barely 13!!! This book is not nearly as well written as any of Moning's other books. I am having a very hard time reading it. I am also beginning to loathe Mac and her idiotic ways!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intriguing I read this book solely for the reason that I'd read the first and was...curious-let's say. I'm a book reader at heart, love them in all shapes and forms. But I'm not a fan of one single story line being dragged out in numerous novels. I think that’s the number one downside to this series for me. But with that being said, I read this one in one sitting. My dis-like of the main character is fading with each chapter I read and each thing she does to prove she's no longer vapid and shallow. The twists and turns in this novel was like a roller coaster. But again I have to express my dis-like of the lack of a strong leading man for the main character. I've come-though-to like Jericho Barrons even though he's devious and shady. Karen Marie Moning writes intriguing characters and odd tense relationships. Like the one Mac and Barrons share and probably won't ever cross.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No longer the spoiled rich girl. MacKayla has more questions than answers. And every time she asks questions, some are ignored, evaded, or answered, but not directly. Mac is getting frustrated. She doesn’t know who to trust, unsure of where to turn. She wants answers desperately and is doing anything she can to find them. Fiona purposely closes all the lights and opens a window, hoping the shades will get rid of Mac once and for all. Inspector O’Duffy manages to track her down and begins asking questions about things not quite right, things Mac already knows (in Darkfever). However, not long afterwards, she’s brought in for questionning. Seems O’Duffy was murdered and Mac is the prime suspect. Inspector Jayne, O’Duffy’s brother-in-law, doesn’t like Mac and sticks to her like glue. On top of everything, her father’s come to Ireland to bring her home. She’ll send him back - but she’s not going anywhere. She finds out that there are other sidhe-seers in Ireland, but so far not one of them has done a thing to earn her trust. And just when things get hairy, someone comes for her, someone she though dead. But the cuff that acts as a tracking device that Barrons had put around her arm so that he can find her has been removed. Will Barrons find her in time? I found I liked Mac much more in this one than in Darkfever. The spoiled rich girl act was driving me nuts. In this one, she’s grown up quite a bit and is learning more and more. Barrons is just as secretive and mysterious as in Darkfever, and the electricity, the sexual tension between them adds spark to the story. Lots of action, questions answered only to have more questions, new things learned, old things revisited. We learn what Barrons isn’t, but again, more questions arise. Who is he? What is he? The Lord Master pops in, and when he commands, Mac’s body obeys, no matter how hard she tries to stop it. But the second that Barrons yells that Mac stays with him, the Lord Master takes one look at him and leaves, leaving Mac with Barrons. So, question is - who is Barrons? What is he? Why is he so desperate to use Mac to find the Sinsar Dubh, let alone any other artifacts of the Fae? And just the thought of her being with another man rubs him raw, but yet he pushes her away. Why? And with yet another cliffhanger ending, we wait for Faefever. While most won’t have to wait long (hardcover released September 16th), I’ll be waiting. Can’t afford to buy hardcovers. A year is going to be a long wait with that last cliffhanger. And with all those questions still unresolved, you can bet I’ll be at the bookstore bright and early when the MMP is released. I’m not usually one for cliffhanger endings and unanswered questions, but the way Moning writes is perfect - it makes me come back for more. I love the banter, the tension, between Mac and Barrons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved IT! Ever since reading Dark Fever I couldn't wait for Blood Fever to come be released and once it was, I picked it up I was totally hooked. I love the idea of an entire world that we don't know about right under our nose! I can't wait for Fae Fever, it seems like I have been waiting for forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful The humor was surprising as it wasn't expected. With a whole new world of beings walking the streets the author did an amazing job of describing each one without overwhelming the reader. Add the great dialogue, suspense, humor and romance and you have a book you can't put down. This type of book is why i read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting!! I must admit that like some reviews, there is the missing romantic connections but it's like you just know that it's coming!! I hope that Faefever will have more romance because it's an awful long plot just to get there...Interesting, but long

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wicked! This was a brilliant book. Always a fan of the supernatural stories, but I never really got into books about the Fae before Karen Marie Moning. I read Darkfever and couldnt wait to read this one. Totally recommend it to any and all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from undecided I liked this book, but it did not satisfy. i really enjoyed the first book and i think i wanted more answers and more about the men in her life but that didn't happen. i will definately read the next but i felt cheated at the end of this book. This book should not be in the romance section

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better and Better I enjoyed the first novel in this series but am officially hooked after Bloodfever. Darkfever introduced you to Mac and follwed her as she fell down the proverbial rabbit hole into the world of the Fae. Bloodfever brought you to a whole new level as the pace and danger increases with every turn of the page. Karen Marie Moning is definitely setting up the reader for the ride of their lives with a sexy Fae prince, evil vampires, dark brooding men and all kinds of evil unseelie creatures out to prey on innocent humans. And to drive you complete crazy, the Mackeltars start to make their way into the peripheral of the storyline. The plot for these series has been laid into almost all her past books and I am very excited to see whole this will all play out over the next 3 books (I think there is 5 in this series but I could be wrong) However, the real question is how will I wait a whole year for the next chapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favourite series Karen marie Moning has created a fabulous new alternate reality series with her first 2 books: Darkfever and Bloodfever. Mac is a kick ass , take no prisoner kind of heroine. Barron as her mentor/partner is every bit as alpha and sexy as you could want him to be. I couldn't put this book down. All the characters are memorable and the descriptions of the Seelie and Unseelie are terrifying. I don't know when Faefever will be out, but it can't be soon enough.

Read from the Book

Prologue All of us have our little problems and insecurities. I’m no different. Back in high school when I used to feel insecure about something, I would console myself with two thoughts: I’m pretty, and my parents love me. Between those two, I could survive anything.

I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .
 
In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.
