DreamFever, by author Karen Marie Moning is the fourth installment in the fabulous Fever series. All her books in this series have hit the NYT bestselling list and for good reason, they are amazing!
MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman.
Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae.
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands...
Moning gives everything a reader could ask for, then throws an extra helping on top. Can you pass the bowl of Unseelie stew please. I have a few favorite authors (Frost, Ward, Cole, Showalter, Sparks to name a few) and she has definitely been placed at the top! I couldn't put these books down, the story was exciting and delicious at the same time.
Can a Barbie girl step it up (3, hahaha) when danger lurks around every corner and numerous people are out to killer her? If the worlds fate rested on your shoulders could you rise to the occasion? Fight or flight? Love or lust, does it matter? With Jericho... heck no! And where is my MacHalo? :)
I cant wait for the final installment to come out, but wait I will cause its not due to hit the stores until Jan 2011. This book is a must read and I am proud to give it my first ever 5 sheep rating!
