Book Description

Oct. 31 2006 Fever Series (Book 1)

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....

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Drawing on elements from the paranormal world that bestseller Moning (Spell of the Highlander) created in her earlier romances, this suspense novel takes readers on a darker journey, one dominated by the search for a powerful Faery magic and bereft of the romantic magic Moning's fans have come to expect. When MacKayla Lane, an ordinary young woman, travels to Ireland to track down her sister's murderer, she is sucked into an extraordinary world filled with ancient secrets, vampires, assorted Fae nasties and other tough-to-kill beings. In the process, Mac learns of her own unusual talents and finds an unlikely mentor in the wealthy and mysterious Jericho Barrons. Moning's newest foray contains suspense and plenty of setup. Indeed, this reads like a fragment of a larger story, an introduction to character and place that, while entertaining, skims the surface. But it's a compelling world filled with mystery and vivid characters, and this, combined with the hint of sparks between Jericho and Mac, will stoke readers' fervor for Bloodfever, the next installment.

From Booklist

MacKayla "Mac" Lane is a small-town southern girl living a life of suntans and shopping. All that changes when her sister dies in Ireland and a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone raises disturbing questions about the nature of her sister's death. Mac follows the lead to Dublin and the strange life her sister led, on to the darkly dangerous book-dealer Jericho Barrons, and a burgeoning war with deadly Fae that humankind doesn't even realize has begun. Time-travel-romance maven Moning reshapes her Celtic lore for a radically different and engaging new dark fantasy series. Mac's first-person narrative is more than point of view; it's a true recounting of how a sheltered young girl grows to accept the role fate has dealt her. And while moments of sexual awareness hint that a relationship between Mac and Jericho could complicate matters in the future, wisely there is no full-blown romance here to distract from the complex introduction to Moning's new world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch the FEVER! Feb. 16 2007
This newest installment from author Karen Marie Moning is sensational.

Mac, our heroine, is a young, naive (and even a little bit vain) American woman in Ireland looking into the mysterious death of her elder sister.

Written in the first person, Mac tells us how she suddenly sees the dark side of this beautiful country and has an unpleasant introduction to the Faerie world. Our hero is every bit as attractive, dark and dangerous all true Heroes are but he too has secrets (not revealed in this installment!) and a dark side of his own.

The two protagonists are not even on first name basis in this novel and Darkfever is only the first in what is rumoured to be a 7 novel offering by Ms. Moning. (Bloodfever is next in October 2007) However, as a teaser, Darkfever lays the ground work that certainly had me hooked.

If you are looking for hot love scenes or romance, this novel is not for you in the traditional sense of 'happy endings'. Although, there is certainly 'sexual content' it is not bewteen the two main characters.

The only down sides of this fabulous work is that Ms. Moning relies quite heavily on foreshadowing and frankly, the constant doom and gloom predictions are a bit trying.

If you are looking for an exciting relationship and excitement at every turn, pick this up...but beware...waiting for the next installment is almost....murder! (PS...this book was so good my husband even liked it..)

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read series!!! Nov. 5 2009
By K. Wark TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is book #1 of 5 and it sucked me in right from the get-go. An absolutely brilliant story with unforgettable characters. The Fever world is set in Dublin, Ireland and while I've never been there, I can picture it clearly in my mind's eye. The story includes action, intrigue, suspense and a budding romance leaving me just DYING to know what happens next. I'm hooked! This is one of my top favorite series and a keeper without question! Catch the fever! You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Story June 19 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This story is about a young woman, Mac, who finds out that her sister has been brutally murdered in Ireland. She sets off to Ireland to discover who killed her sister to seek revenge. While she is there, she discovers that she can see some otherworldly creatures, because she is a sidhe-seer.

This story hooked me immediately, and I would strongly recommend it to people who love a good story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel the Heat... Aug. 25 2007
Dark and sexy new Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, filled with mystery and suspense and no, no sex (yet) though it promises... lots. This is definitely a keeper and promises to blow. your. mind. No, really.

MacKayla Lane's life was great: she had a decent job, a great tan and her cosmetics compact that she never left the house without. She was even planning on returning to school once her sister Alina returned from Ireland. Everything was perfect and planned. Until Alina was murdered. Brutally. But the thing that really set her off? The Irish Garda just didn't care. They closed her sister's case. Just. Like. That.

It was time somebody cared. Like Mac. What she didn't know was, she was heading into trouble. Way in over her head. Enter the Shadows, Death-by-sex Fae, vampires (maybe?), Berserkers (maybe?), Dark Unseelies and other foul creatures. Enter Jericho Barrons, the carnal, mysterious "man with no past and only mockery for a future" who sets out to help her... for his own obscure designs. Could she trust him? When her life seems in danger everywhere she turns, she has no choice but to begrudgingly accept his help to find the Sinsar Dubh, the all-powerful Dark Book. But she still has to know who killed her sister. Alina did NOT die in vain.

Watch out for Bloodfever, out October 31st, 2007.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intrigued but slow going Jan. 19 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mac is an ordinary young adult living her naive life in the U.S.A. when she gets word her sister has been murdered.

Haunted and desperate to find out what happened to her sister she cashes everything, argues with her parents and travels to Ireland to throw evidence in the police's face.

But they don't care.

And, in fact, on her first night in Dublin she pisses off an elderly woman with her inability to control what she sees. And that woman kicks her out seemingly not to care.

But they do care - they just can't speak freely. Because there is a war.

Mac's good at pissing people off and strikes an unlikely alliance with an individual named Jericho who seeks the Sinsar Dubh.

She discovers what she is and who her Celtic heritage is in a war that the Fae have among themselves and with humankind. Her experience with Jericho and fighting off a vampire starts book one in the series. The battle has been fought. The players are known to each other. The war over this Sinsar Dubh magical book begins.

When I first started reading this at the recommendation of a friend, I kinda had to sorta pull myself through the first dozen pages, because admittedly, I really disliked MacKayla Lane. She's obnoxious, bubbly, dippy, tanned, pretty, and shallow. The typically sheltered small-town gal who only got to hear and see what her parents, and larger community decided was appropriate for her. You get me. Anyhow, her sister is murdered in Ireland while she was selfishly goofing off around the pool, so she heads over and is keen to get to the bottom of what really happened, when she's thrust into a world of magic and intrigue.

Anyhow, I immediately got drawn in by the intrigue that surrounded her mysterious ability to sense the objects sacred to the Fae. Yes, they're real, and not very nice, and want to use our realm as their own personal playground/buffet. They're divide into dark and light, for a better lack of terms, and for whatever reason, MacKayla can sense the artifacts that they left on our planet from ages back. She stumbles upon a rather handsome gent named Barrons, who admittedly is every bad masculine stereotype, but somehow still entirely desirable. Anyhow, the pair of them begin to track down several of these "objects of power," at the same time she's hoping to find clues about who or what killed her sister. I can't get into too much more detail than that, but it really comes together nicely, and the way that little details, like the Shades, are woven in really make this a believable tale.

My only serious criticisms are that I really couldn't care less about the endless descriptions of the clothing that Mac's wearing, or the car-porn (you'll know it when you read it) that seems to happen every chapter. Both are a serious turn-off.

Be warned - this is a five part series, and you will likely get addicted, not that that's a bad thing.
