Dreamfever (Fever #4) by Karen Marie Moning

{YES, I've listened to this book on audio and YES this post contains spoilers, as I am reviewing a book!! LOL! may contain questionable language, discretion is advised! Excerpt below from Good Reads.}



Dreamfever (Fever #4)

MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the erotic Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master’s spell.…In New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest—and most erotically charged—adventure of her life.

He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought—and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust. 
As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister’s diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge.…
It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth—about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons…and about the world she thought she knew.

Hi!!! So... HOLY FECKING SHIT!!!! I just finished this book and although I was daydreaming for a while now about what I was going to say about this book and why it was just OFF PUTTING for me, the fecking end is like a CLIFF HANGER FROM HELL!!! oh holy hell!!! I literally reached for my mp3 player, shut it off and scrambled over to my desk to get the final book loaded and started- but then I thought, DAMN, I have to do a review!!! So yeah. I'm letting my mp3 player charge for a little while and I just loaded up the 5th and final book in this Fever series to start it right after I post this! LOL! So... back to my "off putting" remark... well I had noted a few other words down as well such as 'uncomfortable', strange direction the book was taking, odd 'animal mentality' Mac was going through in the beginning (pri'ya) which I kinda get but it still was read oddly and felt uncomfortable! And I've heard a very tiny handful of books read in such a way as this one, where a talented female reader, in this case it's Natalie Ross, reads the actual narration of the book and any female speaking parts, and the ohhhh soooo lovely Phil Gigante reads any male speaking parts. I've heard books set up this way before, and they are... interesting. There is a bit of a strangeness when books are outlined this way, because obviously the two readers aren't sitting where ever reading their parts TO one another when there are speaking parts in the book, so it feels very strange, and like the listener KNOWS that fact and it's a little unsettling, because when the speaking parts are "pieced together" they feel disingenuous and just, out of place, off putting and over all... odd! It's a strange little feeling listening to a female read and then when you anticipate her to take on a male voice in a male speaking part (which many female readers do quite well, it's shocking!) and this rumbly often times gravely and dark voice comes out of the headphones, especially when it's Gigante's voice- his is other worldly to say the LEAST, it's just startling and takes damn near the whole book to kinda get the flow of and often times I'm fairly distracted when he voices the male characters, that my brain kinda tweaks out a little! LOL! Anyway... the plot was very strange in the beginning with Mac having gone Pri'ya... which is a pretty much fae sex addiction, and well Barrons takes it upon himself to "treat and cure" her addiction using himself. Now that kind of bothered me, I did NOT want their relationship to "go there", THAT way! UGH! Bad call Moning! I have a strong fondness for Barrons at this point, AND Mac (even though the "Mac" in this book is a little too much, too cocky, too annoying and just TOO MUCH but I digress!) and the coupling in such a way was just icky... it left a bad taste in my mouth! And the CLIFF HANGER AT THE END..... GOOD GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! I sear to god, when I plug book 5 in and start listening, if it's what I think it is... I am going to BAN ever listening to another fecking Moning book for as long as I live!!!! I honestly have a sick sinking feeling in my tummy regarding the cliff hanger, and am petrified!!!! Eeeeeep!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay... so... because it felt funny in the beginning and took a while to 'come around', I gave his one:





NEXT: BOOK 5 AT LONG LAST....
