NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

They may have stolen my past, but I’ll never let them take my future.

When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the insatiable, immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, MacKayla Lane is caught in a deadly trap. Captured by the Fae Lord Master, she is left with no memory of who or what she is: the only sidhe-seer alive who can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of arcane black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds.

Clawing her way back from oblivion is only the first step Mac must take down a perilous path, from the battle-filled streets of Dublin to the treacherous politics of an ancient, secret sect, through the tangled lies of men who claim to be her allies into the illusory world of the Fae themselves, where nothing is as it seems—and Mac is forced to face a soul-shattering truth.

Who do you trust when you can’t even trust yourself?

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was good 3.5 stars This is the 4th book in the Fever series, with a straight continuation from the 3rd book. ****SPOILERS for previous book**** Mac is in big trouble, but between Dani and Barrons, they are able to help. In this installment of the series, Mac tries to get the rest of the sidhe-seers to work together to fight, despite their leader, Rowena, trying to shield them from what's happening since the walls have broken down, releasing the Unseelie into the world. ****END SPOILERS**** It was good. Once again, it ended on a cliffhanger, as every book in the series has done, so I expected it. Really, the first book in the series was the initial set-up and the rest of the books have mostly been preparation for what I expect to be an action-packed finale. Of course, various bumps happen along the way during this prep-time to keep it interesting. Mac is also able to learn more about everything that's been going on, what she is, what's happening, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from All Hell is loose. . . The fourth novel continues right where the third novel leaves off. At the conclusion of Faefever, Mac finds herself in a really bad situation that she definitely didn’t think she would end up in. The fourth novel continues right there and it begins to change Mac forever. All hell has broken loose in the fourth instalment of the fever series with Mac disparately looking for the Sinsar Dubh and still not sure who she can trust. I did enjoy the fourth novel and definitely finish up the series with Shadowfever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dark Book is driving everyong crazy, who will stop it? The walls between the human and the Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest — & erotically charged —adventure of her life. The Lord Master has stolen her past, but Mac will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. As Jericho Barrons and the Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge. Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth — about herself, her sister, and about Jericho Barrons…and about the world she thought she knew

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to the series Ok, so to be honest, I am writing this review after finishing the series because as soon as this book ended, I had to immediately start the next. This series seems to improve with every book! It was a great read, and what a cliffhanger ending!!! Word of advice, before starting this one, make sure you already have the next book in the series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not disappoint This book was fantastic. Continuing exactly where we left off in Faefever we learn how to cure someone of being pri-ya, which is interesting to say the least. We are treated to another side of Barrons, one he probably never wanted anyone to see, and Mac loses what’s left of her Barbie side which in my opinion is a blessing. Although it is answers we seek there are few given in this book, although I found I was given more questions then ever before. Not surprising as Moning seems to enjoy keeping us in the dark. We learn just enough to keep us begging for more. This one is a huge page turner I couldn’t put it down, more twists and turns then the rest and the ultimate cliff-hanger. I have never been so happy that the next instalment of a series was already available then I was with this series. I cannot recommend this series enough, which is saying something considering how I felt about the first book. Make sure you have the fifth book ready to go when you reach the end of this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Crazy Dream! THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SLIGHT SPOILERS If you haven't read the Fever series, be warned, the ending of Dreamfever is the most awful cliff-hanger I have ever read. However, I use awful in the sense that I am now DYING to get my hands on Shadowfever. How dare Moning leave her readers in such a bind! After having devoured the series in a week, I am so frustrated that I can't pluck Shadowfever off the shelf and continue reading. Waiting until January for the final instalment in the series will be pure torture! Other than the cliff-hanger ending, I adored this book. Like the other books in the series, Dreamfever begins right where Faefever left off, with Mac being turned Pri-ya by the 3 Unseelie princes and an anonymous 4th member. Although she is close to death, Mac is rescued by Dani in the nick of time and taken to the Abby. Soon after, Barrons comes for Mac and takes charge in helping her to recover...which is an interesting process to say the least. While Barrons succeeds in bringing Mac back from being Pri-ya, gone is the Rainbow Girl she once was. Dreamfever than follows Mac and Barrons in their continued search for the Sinsar-Dubh and the other Fae Hollows, while the Lord Master (Darroc) and the other Unseelie wreak havoc on the world. While this book is a complete page turner, it was a lot darker than the previous books in the series. Although we finally get some Barrons and Mac loving, the situation in which they finally get together is heartbreaking. After pulling for these two for so long, I hated seeing them come together in such a screwed up manner. Furthermore, I just don't know what to think of Barrons anymore! At times he wins me over when he dances around naked with Mac singing Tub Thumping (he even sets up a Christmas tree!). But when Mac is "cured," he returns to his usual jerk self. After 4 books, I'm frustrated with the dynamics of their relationship. However, I do like the new Mac 4.0. She has finally shed that Barbie image and embraced her "savage" side. Although, again, what she must go through to complete her transformation is less than ideal. I also enjoyed seeing Mac become more involved with the sidhe-seers and especially with Dani. In typical Moning fashion, however, some questions in the book are answered, such as Mac's linage, while others still remain up in the air. So for those looking for some explanations, prepared to be disappointed. I know I'm beyond ready for some answers. While the book didn't advance the plot much further, it was still a thrill to read. Even with the cliff-hanger ending, I recommend this book and the Fever series to anyone looking for an exciting and well-written urban fantasy. Only 49 more days until Shadowfever.... PS: BARRONS BETTER NOT BE THE MONSTER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evilier? (evilist?) down right mean cliff hanger ending!!! I will start off by saying I was warned of the evil cliffhanger ending before I started the book. I kept reading, and the ending was just as evil as promised! Mac has been made into a pri-ya at the hands of three unseelie princes and one unknown person. Barron gives Mac a 110% to bring her back, oh the things he does for her. Mac eventually comes back to herself, almost. Mac is now able to resist the Fae charms, and in the end comes out a little darker, stronger and wiser. Mac now has to bring the world back together with Barron. Mac has decided that she cannot trust him, but Barron is still her best option. They search for the book, but the book finds them. Even Barron is shaken up after their encounter, but the book is still on the loose. The Master finds and threatens Mac’s parents unless Mac gives him the Fae stones. Barron and Mac come up with a plan to use the unseelie mirrors to save her parents. Mac will meet the master, and Barron will be coming in to help once she can reveal where they are hidden. When The Master insists that Mac opens the back she is sent through the mirrors, and uses the mirrors to try and find her way out. Mac uses her cell phone to try and get Barron and she ends up with a protector of sorts. Book three had a horrid cliffhanger ending and so does book four. Mac was talking and then nothing! Nothing! I can’t wait for the fifth and final book. I need answers! Who was the protector, who was the fourth, what is Barron, what is Mac turning into!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Wait. Can't wait for the final book. the cliff hanger left me wanting more and wishing that I would have read this book later, so there isn't such a big gap till the final book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fourth Installment thrilling and intriguing From the moment I opened this book, I was as doomed as the main character. I could not put it down. My need to know what happens next can only be likened to Mac's needs while in her Pri'ya state; An unsatiable desire. This fourth novel in Karen Marie Moning's Fever series, answered few of my questions from previous books, and gave me a lot more to think about. Several conspiracy theories about open storyline threads and where they will go in the fifth and final book are going to plague my thoughts until Shadowfever is released in December 2010. This book picks up where the 3rd left off, with some sections written from Dani's perspective adding humour to the story. The regular characters are present, V'Lane, Barrons, Rowena, Darroc, and of course Mac, who still wants to avenge her sisters death but has more pressing issues at the beginning. Some new insights into Barrons past will leave you confused and with many questions. As will V'Lanes intermittent appearances. Rowena's Politics and Darrocs threats will leave you angry and frustrated. Warning (without spoiler) for anyone who has not yet started this series, this novel ends on a big cliffhanger. If you can wait until the last book is released later this year, I recommend you wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicting just like chocolate! Just like all the other books in this series you are left hanging at the end wondering about all the outcomes and possiblities for Mac and the rest of the characters. This has been my favourite so far, but I can't wait for the next book to come out and hopefully answer all the questions and suspisions I have. This book I find you learn a bit more about Barrons, but not much, or at least makes you wonder his motives even more. Mac is forever changed by what happened to her and she is going to need her new self because it looks like her path is far from easy. This one leaves you sitting at the edge of your chair and by the end you'll probably fall off. Now that she has lost everything, will she be able to go on, or will she give up the fight?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute must read!!! Karen Marie Moning is an author I associate with a never fail great read. She did not disappoint in her forth installment in the "Fever" series. It will be a long wait for "Shadowfever"!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book....Waiting for Shadowfever will be agonizing!!! This is NOT a stand alone book, so be aware of that right away. The story starts in Darkfever, continues with Bloodfever, then Faefever, and then it continues with Dreamfever. It is a series that follows Mac Lane, a 22 year old from Georgia, who goes to Ireland to find out who killed her sister, so that she can seek revenge on the killer. While she is there, she discovers that she has the ability to see the Fae,. She also ends up searching for some mysterious objects. Mac encounters many people during her quest, one being Jericho Barrons, as well as the Fae prince Vlane., but she is unsure who she is able to trust, and that is only if she can trust anyone at all. I don't want to give away any of the plot details of any of the books, as they are that enjoyable to read, but Dreamfever has a cliff-hanger ending that makes waiting for the final book of this series Shadowfever absolutely agonizing. But I strongly recommend reading this series, as it is well written, and only when re-reading the books can you discover many clues that you may have missed the first time around. Karen Marie Moning is an excellent author, and is extremely enjoyable to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frustrated I love this series but it frustrates me. Each book ends in a cliffhanger which I'm okay with. However, this book is the 4th in the series and I expected some of the multitude of questions I had from the previous books to be answered. This didn't happen though - I just was left with more questions.
Date published: 2009-08-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kudos to Karen, another excellent book in the series!!! Karen never ceases to amaze me with her books! The beginning and ending were heart wrenching and the middle was filled with a mixture of happiness, frustration and sadness. I smiled, I laughed and I cried. Who could ask more from a book? Definitely not as "romancey" as her Highlander series (which I absolutely loved) but it is every bit as good if not better. It must be read as part of the series though to fully appreciate it. Way to go Karen!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mac and Barrons...Priceless Another fantastic book in this series! I loved it. Once again Mac gets herself into some situations, and her and Barrons still have those irresistable little conversations that get me laughing. And yet again, very few answers... It ends on yet another cliff hanger and I know the wait for Shadow Fever is going to feel very long...
Date published: 2009-08-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely Good! This book continues from where the last left off. The world screwed, Mac being screwed, and the Unseelie running rampant. I don't really want to spoil the book so I'll just hit some high points. We get to learn more about Barrons. Mac comes into more power. The world is minus a couple of billions humans. The sidhe-seers are starting to organize a counter offensive. Oh and the book ends in another cliff hanger. (really getting to hate that) It's a pretty good addition to a pretty good series.
Date published: 2009-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves you questioning what you thought you knew and speculated about the characters in the series! The cliffhanger leaves you questioning everything you ever thought you knew about the series. I have to say it is one of the best cliffhangers I have read so far. I am feeling very optimistic about the last novel of the series. I know she will satisfy the "Fever " dwelling within the fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but has the potential to grow tiresome **Spoiler alert** I love this series. I love that KMM has found her darker writing style and stuck with it. The series as a whole is not a Unicorns and kisses romance story like her previous novels. The Fever series are in no way stand alone novels and a reader should tread lightly if they are thinking to just pick it up and start here. I do thoroughly enjoy Mac as a character, though in this book I felt my self more annoyed and less interested in reading about her when I felt like all she did was find something to comlpain about. I mean I know some pretty crazy stuff happens to her but complaining about it certainly wont help. I was pleasantly surprised when she decided that rather then complain she might try to be more focused in her goals, and that which she hoped to acheive. I find myself wanting to knock some sense into her, and tell her to just take the help that is so often offered to her. Though I suppose were I in her shoes I would probably not be to keen on trusting anyone. The book comes to a close in the typical fashion of the books in this series. A giant cliff hanger meant to tempt and tease. I am honestly looking forward to the final installment SHADOWFEVER (as yet no release date) because I think that there are alot of loose ends, and of story left to tell for one book. I suppose if I could critique the book any further and hand myself over to my dark girly side id leave this review with a solid "BUT WHERE IS V'LANE AND WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY FAE PRINCE?!?!?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable! I read it in 24 hours, then immediately read it again. I love this series and this is the best yet. Like the others said, definitely read them in order. The ending leaves me dangling from a cliff edge by one torn, bloodied and broken fingernail. I can't wait for the conclusion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an AMAZING read!!! In order to understand this book you must read her previous books, Darkfever,bloodfever, and faefever. It also may not hurt to read her highlander novels aswell. You will recognise the names that come up in her fever series. I must say, contrary to what some may say, this book as well as her others in this series, are amazing. No there are not "fillers" if not for the smaller details, this book wouldnt be what it is. High five to Karen Moning for yet another adventerous book. I truly reccomend this to anyone over the age of 16, ok maybe 18. But it tells a story about Mackala, a very well written story. Your taken away to another world, where no rules apply anymore. Anything and I mean anything is possible where this book is concerned. Please read the book and decide for yourself. The fillers should be there, if not for them, I dont think I would like it very much. It is a long series, but the characters are interesting, the main ones frustratingly wonderful, and your kept on your toes at all times. No other book does this to me, but the fever. Trust me, by the end of all these books, you will have a fever. Your temperature will sky rocket. Have fun reading guys and gals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Read it in a Day If I was a younger reader (and if it didn't irk me when other people do it) I would probably start this review with "OMG OMG OMG! THIS IS A GREAT BOOK!" But since I try to write reviews that are actually useful, I will try to elaborate. Dreamfever is the fourth book in what is supposed to be a five book series by Karen Marie Moning. None of the books are stand alone and you must read them in order. If you haven't read the first three books, I would recommend you start with Darkfever. This review is for those of you who have read the previous books, and who, if you are like me, probably screamed in frustration at the cliffhanger at the end of Faefever. Well, let me tell you, Moning jumps right in where she left off and what happens will blow you away. I absolutely loved the way she handles the whole 'pri-ya' thing. I don't think you will be disappointed. This installment is a fast-paced page turner. I read it in one sitting. I just could not put it down. I really don't want to give too much away, but I will say, Mac 4.0 is a darker, take charge version of Mackayla Lane. Long gone is Barbie-Mac, now she's Black Mac, taking charge of her life and kicking Fae butt. Still unable to tell who to trust, but realizing that she still needs some help, she forms uneasy alliances with Barrons and Vlane and most surprisingly, Rowena and the other sidhe-seers. Although it was a page turner overall, it feels like it didn't advance the plot that much farther. But you do get to learn more about the mysterious Barrons and see Mac like never before. Fans of the series, you won't be disappointed. You will however be screaming again at the cliffhanger at the end of this book. ARRRRGGGGHHHH! How can Moning do this to us????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A slower entry into the series Glad to have gotten it early. The action almost never stops, although not a great amount of progress is made. The book is great but don't expect too many answers. It is a filler book, I think Id like for it to move a bit faster. I find the abbey plot tiresome (as in the group of the useless girls who have no weapons and I still see no purpose for). Mac still could be a bit darker, especially after the rape. It was my least favorite of the Fever series, but overall I'd give it 4.5 stars but since I can't, 5 stars it is and the ending... can't wait for Shadowfever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read this book in one day Yes I know the book has not been released yet, but if you pre-ordered the book online and were one of the lucky people, like myself, that got the book shipped early you are in for a wild ride. It starts where Faefever left off and keeps going from there. Most importantly you get some answers you have been hoping for since the Darkfever came out. Not all but some. The end is a huge cliff hanger that I'm just dying to know that answer too. I don't think I can wait another year for Shadowfever to come out. In 10 days when the book comes out in stores, I suggest you all run over and pick it up. Thanks Chapters for shipping it out early. It was an unexpected surprise in my mailbox.

Read from the Book

Prologue Mac: 11:18 a.m., November 1 D eath. Pestilence. Famine.  They surround me, my lovers, the terrifying Unseelie Princes. Who’d’ve thought destruction could be so beautiful? Seductive. Consuming. My fourth lover—War? He ministers to me tenderly. Ironic for the bringer of Chaos, creator of Calamity, maker of Madness—if that is who he is. I cannot see his face, no matter how I try. Why does he hide? He caresses my skin with hands of fire. I char, my skin blisters, bones fuse from sexual heat no human can endure. Lust consumes me. I arch my back and beg for more with parched tongue, cracked lips. As he fills my body, he quenches my thirst with drink. Liquid spills over my tongue, drips down my throat. I convulse. He moves inside me. I catch a glimpse of skin, muscle, a flash of tattoo. Still no face. He terrifies me, this one who keeps himself concealed. In the distance, someone barks commands. I hear many things, understand none. I know that I have fallen into enemy hands. I know also, soon, I will no longer know even that.  Pri-ya,  a Fae sex addict, I will believe there is no place, nothing else I would rather be. If my thoughts were coherent enough to form sentences, I would tell you that I used to think life unfolded in a linear fashion. That people were born and went to . . . what’s that human word? I dressed up for it every day. There were boys. Lots of cute boys. I thought the world revolved around them. His tongue is in

Editorial Reviews

“Give yourself a treat and read outside the box.”—Charlaine Harris, on Darkfever
