Title - Bloodfever
Author - Karen Marie Moning
Series - Fever #2
Genre - Urban Fantasy
Published - October 16th 2007
Format - Ebook


I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.


I tried really hard to keep the spoilers out. I loved the first book but just didn’t have the time to finish the series yet. Mac is human well as human as you can be and still be drawn into the fae world. She’s rare a sidhe-seer one of the few who can see the fae for who they really are not human. In the first book she learned about her gift, also that her sister was murdered and refused to leave till she got justice for her sister.

Mac is still trying to find her sister’s journal hoping it will be the key to finding the Sinsar Dubh a magic book that will change everything. Mac still seems to be drawn to trouble but she has two men willing to jump in and save her life. The police are suspecting her of killing the guy who attempted to kill her wanting her to leave town. So as an excuse to stay in Dublin she will work for Barrons after all Fiona isn’t working at the bookshop after she almost got Mac killed by shades.

As if that’s not enough to worry about Mac is torn between too very different powerful men who may not be human. Mac has enough on her hands with her sisters case adding a few irresistible men to the mix is just not what she’s looking for. As she and Barrons continue to look for the Sinsar Dubh Mac finds herself at the hands of a vampire fae and running into the Lord Master. Will Barrons be able to save her this time? Will she find her sisters journal? Will they find the Sinsar Dubh?

I love Mac she stole my heart in the first one and just keeps getting better. I’m still on the fence with the guys but what can I say Fae Prince or something else tough choices. I prefer Barrons but we will have to see how that works out as the series progress. Best way to describe Mac is she’s like a bottle of wine keeps getting better with age.

Bloodfever is another fantastic installment in the Fever series. In this one we get a little taste of Dani who has a spin off series that I want to read. Mac is one of those characters that grows which I really like she’s already easy to connect with. The book is action packed, filled with Fae, creatures lurking in the dark, sexy men, suspense, and one kick ass heroine. I was captivated right from the start it’s hard to put down I was so drawn into Mac’s life. The concept is unique and maybe it’s the world Mac lives in but I love everything about the book. The author has done a brilliant job weaving an intricate story, and her writing style flows smoothly. I’m an addict when it comes to the Fae and so far the fever series has been my favorite. It does have its moments so I suggest mature adults but defiantly a must read.
