Not just a dream, but a world created of fae, nightmares, lies, truths, and wonder, Karen Marie Monings' series of five Fever novels culminated in the most recent entry, Shadowfever.
Beginning where Dreamfever ended, Mac finds herself alone with death. Her journey in this book takes us through unrelenting darkness, sadness, anger, revenge, and despair. The author has already has offered the greatest spoiler on her website with the first two chapters where Mac discovers the identity of the beast she killed. The beast that she feared yet trusted - and which protected her. 'Nuff said?
Moning never does anything by halves, and trust me, this book is worth reading and re-reading. Actually not just reading but luxuriously enjoying. This world of a Fae-soaked Dublin, a world of grey - no longer black and white - is one to be savored slowly. And at the conclusion we discover who and what Mac really is. Finally.
Humanity is celebrated even among those who are not human, by the understanding and acceptance of the most human of qualities - honest mistakes.
The best news that I can share is at the end - where it is indicated that there are more novels signed for this series. So the story of Mac and her Fever world does not end, but will continue to evolve.
NB Please, please, please read these books in sequence - Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, Dreamfever, and Shadowfever. Each one leads to the next and while you might find one out of sequence interesting, now that all five are available it is truly an extraordinary and perfect time to read all five. You will be enchanted. And don't stop there, do check out Moning's Highlander series. The characters of the MacKelters now are entwined in the Fever series and these are fabulous books as well.

Moning has extraordinary gift to create alternative worlds that envelop us, seduce us, and in time ravish us. Enjoy!
