I know I just posted about this series the other day but this truly deserves another dedicated post!
Karen Marie Moning just announced on her Facebook page that she has contracted to write a trilogy set in Fever-Dublin featuring Dani, Christian MacKeltar, Ryodan, and the mysterious “Dancer”! And the cherry on top? She’s agreed to write TWO MORE books after the trilogy back to the core story featuring Mac and Barrons!!!! SQUEE!
If you have no idea what I’m even remotely talking about you need to go purchase the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning RIGHT NOW! It’s the best Urban Fantasy series ever, well, it’s bloody amazing in the least.

This review is from last year, I’ve updated or crossed out irrelevant information.
I finished this book last night. It’s book 4 of KMM’s Fever series. It was amazingly good and I will not be doing a formal review of it.
"I’m not a dude. Lose it." I was not going to ask, "So, how did he look at me?" "Like it was his birthday and you were the cake." At least he hadn’t smashed this one into the ceiling. It seemed Barrons had finally gotten his cake and eaten it, too.
The above quote is one of the best of the book. If you haven’t read this series, you are sorely missing out. Although, I’d recommend waiting until [January] after Shadowfever is released that way you’ll have ALL the books of the series and won’t have to wait an ENTIRE YEAR or more to find out what the hell just happened at the very end of this freaking book! KMM is the Queen of Cliffhangers.
Now, you’d have to understand my predicament. I was reading this on my Kindle and it has these little dots at the bottom that shows my progress. I can usually tell about how many more pages are left in a book by this timeline. And by pages I mean roughly the number of clicks or even minutes of reading left. However, Dreamfever ended with 4 more dots to go!!!! I was SO upset you don’t even understand. I was NOT prepared for it to just END. GAH! 4 more dots would be at least 50 more pages……
Anyhow, this series is well worth all the angst it’s proving to be. KMM is a brilliant storyteller, world builder, and heart breaker. BUT she promises a happy ending, and for that I have faith.
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…. – Goodreads
I don’t know if it’s a final cover or not because I can’t find it anywhere else. Karen actually revealed this on her blog but of course I saw it on Goodreads before I got through my enormous back log on Google Reader. Karen launched a site specifically for this book! Check out Shadowfever.com.
