Book Review: Shadowfever
Book 5 in the Fever series
AUTHOR: Karen Marie Moning
GENRE: urban fantasy, romance
SHORT PREMISE: Mac's journey comes to an end.
MY REVIEW: All that Mac has been working for comes down to this. Finally we get answers as to who killed Alina (ouch, guys, just ouch), semi-answers to what Barrons' deal is, a conclusion to the epic war, and yes even Barrons and Mac finally stop bickering long enough to resolve their UST. Sort of.
The Fever series has been an interesting ride for me. I discovered it when the first book was being offered for free on Kindle and downloaded. I liked it but at the same time I was wary of the sex and felt that dragged down the quality a bit. I still sort of think that to be honest but hey, what can you do? At the very least, it adds plot developement of a sort and is hot so it could be worse. By the third book the series felt like a complete turn around and pumped up all the stuff in terms of writing, quality, and storyline. Now I pretty much love this series and will whole-heartedly recomend it to anyone.
If you've read books 1 through 4 you know what to expect. Shadowfever is one wild whirlwind of emotion from beginning to end and I must say Moning brought it in this. Also, it looks like there's going to be a spin-off! ;crosses fingers and prays it's about Dani;. This is a must read for all Fever fans. For anyone who has looked at this, please give it a chance. Especially if you're an urban fantasy fan.
WHO SHOULD READ: urban fantasy fans, those that have read books 1 through 4
MY RATING: Four and a half out of Five evil demon books
