New York Times bestseller

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another really good book in this series In book 3 of the Fever series, a number of people/fae/critters are trying to find the “Sinsar Dubh”, the ancient book that both Seelie and Unseelie fae, and seemingly everyone else who knows about it want to get their hands on, for various reasons. Mac, being someone who can sense the book, is trying to expand the number of “people” she has to help her out and back her up. She still doesn't know who, if anyone, she can really trust. In the midst of all this, Mac discovers that there is a deadline, or something big and deadly will happen. Another really good book in this series. Got even better in the last few pages, but then ended on a cliffhanger.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Saga continues. . . The third novel continues right where the second novel leaves off. Mac continues to try and find out whom she can trust between V’laine a death by sex fae prince or Jericho Barrons who we don’t know what he is. She has reason to doubt both of them, and continues to play them off of one another to her advantage. She also brings a detective from the Garda to help her find the Sinsar Dubh (a book) her sister told her she needed to find. She also doesn’t know if she can trust her follow Sidhe-Seer(people who can see the fae). Her world has just started to get even more complicated. Good third novel in this series and continues to have the sexually tidbits thrown in. I’m still interested in finding how this ends up. Dreamfever here I come. . . No pun intended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Anymore Fae to worry about? Mac’s quest for The Book continues and she is forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an over-sexed Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes and Jericho Barrons who is a man (or is he?) of animalistic desires and untold secrets. Mac is in a battle for her body, mind, and soul. When MacKayla Lane receives a letter which is a torn page from her dead sister’s journal. She is frozen by Alina’s desperate words with her sister’s killer being so close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the Mac is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a Fan!! Okay, so I am finally hooked! This book was great! The walls come down and the gloves come off. We get to see a stronger Mac. We get to see more humour and creativity. This book is a fast read, mostly because you just can’t put it down! Page after page there’s always something happening that makes you want to know the outcome. Also, be thankful that the fourth book is already out and have it ready for when you finish this book because it has the biggest cliff hanger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Those Darn Fae! This series just keeps getting better and better. Picking up right where Bloodfever left off, Faefever will leave you gasping for breath by the end. In Faefever, Mac continues in her quest to recover the mythical Sinsar-Dubh with the help of the mysterious Jericho Barrons. However, she is still unsure who she can trust. After a close encounter with the fabled book, Mac learns that the Sinsar-Dubh has morphed into something far more fearsome than just an Unseelie Hallow. Also, Dublin itself appears to be on the brink of chaos as the Dark Zones continue to grow and more Unseelie slip through the cracks. As Halloween or Samhain fast approaches, Mac learns that the prison walls holding the rest of the Unseelie at bay will fall if the MacKeltar's ritual is not performed correctly. However, without the Sinsar-Dubh, Mac has no idea how to keep the barriers separating our world and the Unseelie prison in place. If you hate cliff-hangers, do not read this book. The ending packs quite a punch. However, the rest of the book will also keep you flipping the pages at a steady pace. In Faefever, Moning reveals more about the origins of the Sinsar-Dubh and the Unseelie. She also gives a few more clues about the true identity of Barrons. Yet, for every lose end Moning ties up, she adds a new twist to the story that will have you scratching your head. I thought for sure I had Barrons nailed! Guess not... Mac also continues her transformation in the book. She is beginning to embrace the Savage Mac side of her. However, she still desperately clings to the elements that defined her life before her sister's murder. Although I'm glad the girly-girl attitude is gone, I understand Mac's need to hold on to some scraps of her old life, even if that means wearing a pastel colored sweater or buying a pink bike helmet. Mac is quickly becoming one of my favorite heroines. The secondary characters in the book also become more integral to the story in Faefever. Everyone seems to have a large stake in finding the Sinsar-Dubh. Also, each character is complex in that they are all shades of grey. Not everything is black and white in this book. The good guys aren't necessarily good and some of the bad guys aren't all the bad. It certainly makes you more empathetic to Mac's trust issues. So far, Faefever is my favorite book in the series. However, I'm about to go pluck Dreamfever off my bookshelf so its regin as my fave may not last long. If you haven't started this series yet, what are you wating for? I've kicked myself enough times already for not devouring these books sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait til January! I just finished this book (the 4th in the series) and I CAN'T WAIT until the fifth (and final) book is released in January! I couldn't put this series down. The characters are all so interesting and you never quite know who is good and who is evil. I love the fast pace of this series and the mix of fantasy, mystery, and romance. These books are highly addicting and hard to put down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Series Get Better With Every Book This was the 3rd book in Moning's Fever series and in my opinion the best so far. This book picks up right where the last one ended. Mac is still trying to find her sister's killer and make him pay. The trouble is she's no longer sure who she can trust. Jericho Barrons who has been teaching her how to be a sidhe seer while keeping secrets or V'Lane a fairy prince who wants to stop the villian who threatens to tear down the walls between our world and theirs. This was an amazing book that had me on the edge of my seat and up until all hours of the night reading. The only thing I didn't like was the INSANE cliffhanger that Moning left us with at the end of this novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted evil author for use of evil EVIL cliff hanger ending! Mac is still trying to figure out whom to trust between Barron and V’Lane. (None of her lists can help her make heads of tails of either man.) Adding to the problems that now everyone else seems to want something from Mac too, and no one is being straight with her. Mac is trying to find the Sinsor Dubh and keep it away from everyone else, find out whom her parents were, keep the walls between Fae and human worlds up, learn how to stop Voice from affecting her, find out what Barron really is, find out why unseelie are doing electrical work throughout the city, stop the Fae from killing people, not get killed in the process and get revenge for her sister’s murder. With Halloween quickly coming up Mac feels that finally there will be an end, but an end to what. Barron is in Scotland helping the MacKelters, V’Lane is with his people doing something and Rowena will let Mac come help with their rituals. On the way over Mac is stopped by mobs of human’s swept up with the unseelie and can’t get to Rowena, Dani and the other sidhe-seers. Dani calls and says that the Fae orb Mac gave them was filled with shades. Lots of the sidhe-seers are dead, and Rowena blames Mac. Mac is shocked and angered by it as it was Barron who had it last. Mac tells them to stay in the castle, as they are still safer there. The unseelie had a plan for this night, they have knocked out all the lights in the city and the shades can move freely. Everyone is in danger now. Mac manages to get to safety but she can see that walls between human and fae coming down. Mac manages to survive the night, now Mac tries to figure out what to do next. ***SPOILER*** Mac is found by three of the unseelie princes (death by sex Fae) and they make her a sex slave. (Yes, this has been foreshadowed since book 1). Once they have made her this mindless slave The Master walks in and says that she is ready to do what ever he wants, and Mac thinks to herself yes she would die for him! And then…..then you have to wait for book four. Most evil cliffhanger ending!!!!! This is the third in the series of five, and I am so caught up in it. I can truly understand all of Mac’s confusion as to who to trust. I love this because I have no idea how this is going to turn out! For me, that is way a good book/series should be. Except for the evil ending! I am so glad I don’t have to wait for book four as it is already out. Off to the bookstore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicted! This book left off horribly, but not in a bad way. Ireland is on the verge of destruction while Mac and Jericho search for the Sinsar Dubh. Many times Mac comes in close contact with it and discovers who is moving it around the city. More fae surround the city and dark times are soon to come. Mac feelings toward V’line and Jericho continue and more is revealed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicting When I first started reading this series, I was unsure about it, but know, I am addicted to it. I am constantly wondering what will happen to each of the character's and what could possibly happen next. Things for Mac in this book definately go from worse to down right horrible by the end of the book and leaves you wondering if Mac will survive this one and who if anyone will come to her rescue. Each book just gets better and better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Jericho Barrons!!!!!!!! This is the third in the series and they just keep getting better. If you're a fan of romance with less graphic detail (though there is some) and more unspoken sexual tension you may like this one. The main character, Mac, had to save the world from evil Fae with the help of Jericho Barrons, who is a mean, nasty, male chauvinist pig that's hotter than hell and I'm desperatly in love with. I loved the first 2 and can't wait for the next one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safer in the Dark? This is the third book in the fever series. Mac is becoming more clever. She creates a device to keep her safe in the dark. Aside from the obvious benefits (avoiding the Shades), she no longer has to carry flashlights. She also learns more about Barrons, V’lane, and the Fae. She figures out how to control herself around “the Book” and V’lane. Mac then decides to help Rowena and the sidhe seers in their quest to save the planet. It seems a simple plan, stop the Fae from entering by reinforcing the walls between the worlds. She then tricks Barrons into helping his enemy in hopes of strengthening the walls. It will take everyone and all their power to do this, and even still it seems unlikely. Mac learns the art of negotiation and thus Barrons agrees to her plans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Can't Wait for More! The latest in the Fever series (at least until later this month - Aug 2009 - when Dreamfever comes out), Faefever packs a punch. While it is a more transitional book, it doesn't fail to entertain and I have to warn you, the last chapter is a killer (especially if you hate cliffhangers). Picking up right where Bloodfever left off, MacKayla Lane, or Mac, continues to work with the enigmatic Jerico Barrons to find the Sinsar Dubh, the Unseelie text that everyone seems to want. A sidhe-seer, someone who can see through the glamors woven by the Fae, and a self-described OOP (objects of power) detector, Mac also finds herself changing into something else altogether. Gone is the Barbie girl and here to stay is savage Mac. Savage Mac wears black because it doesn't show the blood and gore and prowls the streets of Dublin slaying Unseelie fae. While the chemistry between Barrons and Mac threatened to ignite at the end of Bloodfever, things seem to have been put back to a slow burn in that department. Despite this, there are some great scenes between Barrons and Mac and we get to see a bit more of the secretive Jerico. V'Lane, the death-by-sex Seelie Prince, also continues to woo Mac and he provides her with some much needed respite. Moning has a real way with words; her prose is well-crafted, and the story just flows right off the pages. You will have a hard time putting it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gripping Third in a series. So far the best of the three books. The story is intense, fast-paced and gripping. There's more of that tension between Mac and Barrons and will be interesting to see how the relationship will play out. The only complaint is we don't really learn anything new until almost at the end and then we are left with a clift-hanger. Unfortunately we have to wait until August for Dreamfever. * sigh *

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvelous Ride! Okay, loved this book. Another keeper. Just one big problem with it--------leaving the end so suspenseful when the next book in the series doesn't even have a release date yet. It is one thing to wait a month for the next book in the series, another to wait a year when you have an ending like that. Still, a must read, but maybe wait a while to buy the book.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was disappointed with this book. Other than the ending, it's very similar to the second book and Mac gets no farther. This book had no progress to me, same old. I don't want to read a book, than a shocker ending (which i think with all the powers out there was frustrating) then told by the author to hang on. It almost seems that the main part of the book was not enough, so an ending with "What was that" was needed to keep people coming back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC Wow, all of the books in this series are just great. The story is well developed and thought out. The mood is dark, but so it should be. The bits of dry humor are well placed and actually funny. (it is just bits tho) It is NOT a romace novel. This series is gripping and well written. Now, Mac gets on my nerves sometimes (petunia and feck need to stop. if she wants to swear do it. I hate those made up words for cussing.) I cannot wait for Dreamfever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Annoying, yet interesting I’ve found for the most part with this book and the rest of the series, the book is mostly dull. The most exciting part of all three books was the last five, six pages and then she leaves you on a cliff hanger, with a promise of this story not being consumed by the darkness. I've found with these books that when I start them, I don't want to keep going, but find that I can't stop. It's enthralling and boring all at the same time. I'm going to be picking up the fourth installment when it hits stores in paperback, simply becuase of the gentle nagging in the back of my mind with the way it ended with Mac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more, more, more!!! This series just keeps you wanting more! I started with her highlander series and fell in love with them. When I first read the fever series, I was dissappointed that there was few actual romance scenes, but the tension between Mac and Barrons just couldn't keep me away. I think the ending to this installment was one of the most frustrating I have ever come across, it was that good! I can't wait for the next one :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AHHHHH! Like many of the other reviewers- I really enjoyed the third installment but...Ahh! How can Moning leave us in such suspense! I can't wait another year to find out what happens next! I don't mind TBCs if I have to wait a week but a full year!!! come on...Now, that I have ranted, it really is a great installment and she does a fine job of setting up the groundwork for the fourth book , "Dreamfever."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great third installment I would honestly put this book in horror or fantasy before I would romance but that is part of what makes this entire series so exciting. The suspense, fear and extreme sexual frustration make this a heated third installment to Monings fantastic Fever Series.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK After reading the first two books in the fever series I was eagerly awaiting for this book. However I would have to say I was very disappointed. It was basically a continuation of where the last book ended off with not much to keep the reader's interest until the very end. Mac continued to fight off the unseelies and there was still lots of sexual tension between Mac and Jericho and Mac and V'Lane as per the first two books in the fever series. it was only in the last couple of chapters with the anticipation of halloween that any new story line occurred with, of course, the last chapter leaving us wondering what happens when the walls come down and the more powerful unseelies get through. Needless to say, we have to wait for the next book in the series to find out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unfair to leave us hanging! Chapters chose to not honor the official release date so I was able to read this book before it was supposed to have been available for public consumption. And I use those words deliberately, because I absolutely devoured this book! Slurped it up in 2 days. This tasty addition to the Fever series left me hanging, eagerly awaiting the next installment with a raging fever of my own. A must read!

About the Book

Thrilling and seductive, this third novel in Moning's "New York Times"-bestselling Fever series draws readers deeper into the adventures of "sidhe"-seer MacKayla Lane, as she enters a world of ancient sorcery in Fae-infested Dublin.

Read from the Book

Prologue I’d die for him. No, wait a minute...that’s not where this is supposed to begin. I know that. But left to my own devices, I’d prefer to skim over the events of the next few weeks, and whisk you through those days with glossed-over details that cast me in a more flattering light. Nobody looks good in their darkest hour. But it’s those hours that make us what we are. We stand strong, or we cower. We emerge victorious, tempered by our trials, or fractured by a permanent, damning fault line. I never used to think about things like darkest hours and trials and fault lines. I used to fill my days with sunning and shopping, bartending at The Brickyard (always more of a party than a job, and that was how I liked my life), and devising ways to con Mom and Dad into helping me buy a new car. At twenty-two, I was still living at home, safe in my sheltered world, lulled by the sleepy, slow-paddling fans of the Deep South into believing myself the center of it. Then my sister, Alina, was brutally murdered while studying abroad in Dublin, and my world changed overnight. It was bad enough that I had to identify her mutilated body, and watch my once happy family shatter, but my world didn’t stop falling apart there. It didn’t stop until I’d learned that pretty much everything I’d been raised to believe about myself wasn’t true. I discovered that my folks weren’t my real parents; my sister and I were adopted; and despite my l

New York Times bestseller

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.
