Spoiler-free Book Review: Feverborn: A Fever Novel Book 8 by: Karen Marie Moning

Feverborn: A Fever Novel Book 8
by Karen Marie Moning

January 19th 2016

Hardcover, 436 pages
In Karen Marie Moning’s latest installment of the epic #1 New York Times bestselling Fever series, Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada are back—and the stakes have never been higher or the chemistry hotter. Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, Feverborn is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness, and the redemptive power of love.

When the immortal Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged, and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making—a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of life itself—can save the planet.

But those who seek the mythic song must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: the Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among—and within—themselves.

Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And on those war-torn streets, Mac will come face-to-face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.

All our favorite characters are back in Karen Marie Moning’s newest release in the fever series. Jada, aka Dani is cold and calculating and not the same girl everyone wants her to be. After 5 ½ years stuck in the mirrors, but only a few weeks on earth; Mac, Ryodan and most of the others are having trouble accepting her for who she now is, everyone except Dancer of course.

I really love this series but felt this one was too short. There were many different elements to this book and a few were barely touched on. Some of these elements were major surprises and I was really disappointed that they were just left on the page with no explanation. I can only hope more books are to follow and that these items will be resolved. Out of all of her books I really felt this one had the least amount of story. Still worth the read, especially if you are a die-hard fever fan but you’ve been warned that you may be disappointed with this book.

  1. This one felt like a filler book but at least we got some insight into Jada/Danni. Which broke my heart.

  2. I was so disappointed in Burned, that I canceled my pre order of Feverborn and just put my self on the list for it at the library. After the review and comments my hopes aren't high.
