Karen Marie Moning- ShadowFever

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.   Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.  What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief, while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King that contains the power to create and destroy worlds.
Where do I start?? I am so upset to see this series come to an end, well the main characters in this book, I've heard there might be another series coming that has a few of the side characters in this book as the main characters. I put my vote in for Barrons men- not sure what they are but damn they sound yummy!  In this final book we find out the answers to some main questions that have floated through each book- Who or what killed Alina? What is Barrons? What is Mac? Who is the real traitor?? Well you get the answers to all but one and I am not going to ruin it and tell you which one. I absolutely LOVED Jericho Barrons in this book too (haha like that is a secret, I've loved him in all 4 other books).  We go from sweet little innocent Mac in the first few books to this real take charge kick ass Mac in this book but she really doesn't know when to speak up and tell her true feelings from her heart, so every now and then she falls back to sweet Mac. I like how she considers herself bi-polar because she just doesn't know what is what yet.  I enjoyed this book, actually took my time and read it over 6 days which is a really long time for me. I can say that I was satisfied with the ending BUT it was lacking one thing for me- I wanted three little words- only three and I did not read them but I did feel them. LOL but I still would have liked to read them.. Now I think it's time for me to finish KMM's Highlander series!
My Rating: 5 (and I give it that just for Jericho Barrons)

MY Jericho Barrons!!! (Mine, Mine, Mine!!!)


  1. I just have to say this book is great. Jerricho is the best. I can't wait to read spinoff

  2. Dreamworks bought rights on all five books...I am freaking out! Please let them do it justice. Heat...needs a lot of heat!!

  3. What a wrap up to the storyline. I was not looking forward to the fact that this would be the last book in the series. But Moning came through with an excellent book. I can see why the books was split into parts, it kept the pieces of the story in line. I am looking forward to the trilogy based on the Fever series.
