    Book details


I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who’d get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe-seers, people who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.

When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I’ve learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it….

MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh–a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

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 (for the most part) really liked book one of the Fever series, Darkfever. But it was more for it's addictive feel and potential for greatness in the rest of the series that held me firmly in its grasp. Bloodfever sees the start of that potential realised. Mac is changing, growing from that kind of spoiled, shallow Southern girl in to someone who can keep herself alive in a world where Fae are constantly trying to kill her. Or, at least try and keep herself alive. She's still got a long way to go.I found Mac much easier to like in Bloodfever than I did Darkfever. Her continual growth impresses me as much as it makes me like her more. She can be selfish at times, but she doesn't pretend to be otherwise. She knows it and admits it. She screws up, she doesn't trust people when maybe she should, she assumes a lot of things when sometimes she shouldn't. But she doesn't pretend to be someone she's not. I find her oddly refreshing and thoroughly entertaining. I completely adore the growing chemistry between Mac and Barrons. The way they play off each other is exquisite at times, in a very brash, in your face kind of way. I kept finding myself wishing for more of them together on the page because most of the very best moments of the book are the two of them together, whether they're agreeing about something, fighting with each other, fighting other things, doesn't matter. The two of them together are just fantastic reading!Bloodfever is a great continuation of the story started in Darkfever. There is further exploration of the world Mac's found herself in, more and more questions popping up that I desperately want answered. And yet, the lack of true information is something I'm loving. I can't for the life of me figure out where this series is really heading (aside from a war between the Fae and humans). Specifics are constantly twisting and turning offering many different possibilities. Nothing is what it seems. And Barrons! Dammit, I want to know who and what he is as badly as Mac does! I thoroughly enjoy the way he always calls her 'Ms. Lane' so formal and distant and...I don't know, but I love his character and my curiosity about him is growing with each page he features on. The Fae creatures continue to make me shiver in fear and V'lane...well, V'lane scares me more than the rest because he comes across as a 'good' guy and I can't begin to believe that that's true.Really great read! So addictive and engaging. It's better than Darkfever and still promises that there is a lot more to come from this series. The ending was very dark and intense and left me begging for more! If you've not started this series, do because it's already a new favourite for me and with two books still to go, I'm already anxious for the final book, Shadowfever, which releases January 18th 2011.

    Bloodfever is the very satisfying second instalment of Karen Marie Moning's intended five part series 'The MacKayla Lane Chronicals'. Southern `Princess' MacKayla continues the story she began in Darkfever, effortlessly sweeping you into her struggle to avenge the death of her sister in Dublin as she also starts to investigate her previously unsuspected abilities as one of the world's most powerful Sidhe-seers - the long-hidden breed of human women able to `see' the Fae.As MacKayla becomes increasingly entangled in the timeless battle for power between the `Seelie' and `Unseelie' Fae, in Bloodfever it is her relationship with the enigmatic Jerrico Barrons, his secrets and the shifting relationship between them that truly fascinates. As different factions compete to secure the most powerful of Dark Hallows, the Sinsar Dubh, MacKayla starts to see that the ability to distinguish good and evil around her and even within herself may not be as simple and easy as she once believed.Karen Marie Moning's characters have a clarity and depth that is rewarding and MacKayla's growing self-awareness and self-effacing humour is the perfect foil for Barrons cool self-control. It's hard not to want to know just where these two will end up especially with Death-by-Sex Fae Prince V'Lane never too far away. Even if you weren't completely sold on Darkfever I highly recommend you read Bloodfever. You will no doubt be lining up to get the third instalment of the series, Faefever, when it is published - probably just behind me!

    I eased into the story of Bloodfever with very little effort as the thoughts and feelings of Mac quickly made me a part of her world again!Mac's world is no longer filled with sunbathing at the pool, pink clothes and magazine's but with the Unseelie, dark comfortable clothes and living in a bookstore. Life pulled a 180 on her and she was handling it so far, still the shades grew bolder by the day, old and new enemies finding her and she remains at Barrons side for the quest of the Sinsar Dubh. Many obstacles are in their way with an inspector that watches her closely, her father whom brings a visit and like a home beacon for trouble many want Mac out of the way. Yet, Mac's stubbornness for information leads her to new grounds...In Bloodfever things become darker and nastier as Mac's journey continues. I enjoyed myself, getting acquainted again with the quirky humor of Mac and the effect she has on her surroundings. Sometimes I read a story which effortlessly wraps me up, taking me in to a world that is relentless to let me go, this happened to me with Bloodfever. Karen Moning gave me what I came to expect from her, quality, a world that holds me in its grip and intense characters that make me relate to the journey and emotions they're feeling. And intense they were, with electrified energy between Barrons and Mac it is a sinful pleasure to read their conversations and non verbal communications. At times I thought: `when is this going to erupt into something wickedly physical?' Though Barrons is gorgeous, arrogant and has a large dose of mystery I didn't get to witness him in a wickedly physical state...much! Still he's one of the most delectable men I've ever read about and the only frustration I had was that I didn't read enough of the man in Bloodfever.V'Lane, to me, is a category all on its own, giving us a new feel to the Fae world and still oddly it remains the same. Mac takes centre stage of course as this book is written from the first person. Mac is bold, she's fresh with a language of her own that makes me smile and has a zest for life that makes heroines out of women! Because Karen Moning portraits such a strong personality with her own habits and reading just about her every thought, I connected very easily with Mac again, empathizing with her during the journey and choices she makes. She grows, learns and I for one am very curious where she ends up and with who!Though I didn't experience the revelations in Bloodfever as mind blowing they were still very interesting! I kind of feel like Karen Moning has a strategy in mind, which of course she only knows, and all the characters need to be in a certain place for a spectacular final. Only, we're nowhere near the ending of these Chronicles, so I'm left with this tortures feeling of where this is all going. Still, from first till last page my interest was played by bits of new information or characters that kept me eager and flipping the pages to find out where Bloodfever would end. Because Barrons, sort of, remains wrapped up in mystery, V'Lane cloaked in death-by-sex energy and Mac still tries to unravel it all!With this novel I feel that Karen Moning isn't going to give it to us easy but who wants easy when hard-to-get is so much fun!
