DREAMFEVER by Karen Marie Moning


by Karen Marie Moning

Book Blurb:
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? 

I've lost weight. Do you know why? Because I haven't had anything to eat in 2 days. Eating takes too long. Okay, I may have slipped a banana this morning after I got up. Oh who am I kidding? I never went to bed!

Just finished DREAMFEVER. I have no words. I am in awe. Clearly these are NOT stand alone novels so I am hoping whomever reads this review (even though I will not include spoilers) will understand how hard it is to review this story. I have SHADOWFEVER to go and my head is spinning. I am addicted to these stories as some are addicted to the Unseelie flesh. Instead of reviewing, I want to address some the characters like a journal entry. 

MacKayla. Oh MacKayla. You continue to step it up. How do you endure what you go through? It's not sympathy I feel for you but rather complete and utter admiration. You are the kick ass of all kiss ass women. You are a fictional character like I have never read. From your Pri-ya self to the brave Silver shifter, you are the bomb. You have taken me on a ride and adventures I've never experienced. I may have a girl crush on you. Why do you keep dying your hair black though? Everyone knows who you are so why can't you go back to the blonde?

Barrons. Your secretive self is driving me over the edge. Damn you answer MacKayla's questions! She wouldn't do half the crap she's gotten herself into if you'd just share and demonstrate a bit of trust on your part. Yeah I get that you keep saving her when she really needs it but you have to show her that you are doing so not just because you have a vested interest in her talents. We are mere humans. We need that confirmation, verbally. 

Are you the Seelie/Unseelie King? What the hell are you? Why are the Fae frightened of you. Why didn't you just tell MacKayla why you couldn't save her for 4 days after Halloween. Who was the dead woman you carried through the Silvers? Questions, questions, questions. That's all I've got for you. Well also I do have a thank you for bringing MacKayla back to us when she was in her Pri-ya state. Although you enjoyed the "cure" I am sure. 

V'Lane. Where are you? What happened to you? Are you okay? I'm sick with worry. I still don't trust you but I want to so badly. 
PS - Dani wants you to take her virginity. Don't do it. 

Dani. Wait. Just wait. Don't grow up to fast. I hope with all my heart that Karen Marie Moning creates a spin off series of you. However if she does, I'm not reading it until the entire series is done because I may have had to harm someone if I had to wait a year in between the Fever books. 

Rowena. Get a grip. I wish you were a better leader. It bugs me that someone so smart is so stupid at the same time. 

LM (Lord Master) I don't know why but I believe you when you speak about Alina. Doesn't mean I hope you don't die a slow and painful death. 

Christian. Hold on buddy. I hope someone is coming for you. 

and finally The Sinsar Dubh. Hold still will ya and dial yourself down.

I am off now to finish the last and final book SHADOWFEVERKaren Marie Moning better not end this on a cliff hanger where the reader needs to make a choice for themselves how it all ends. I NEED closure. Stay tuned in 8 hrs or so when I complete my final review of this spectacular series. 

Teaser - "You're leaving me, Rainbow Girl."
