Faefever (Fever #3) 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.}

Faefever (Fever #3)

The New York Times bestselling author of Darkfever and Bloodfeverreturns to Dublin’s Fae-infested shores in a bold, sensual new novel. Hurtling us into a realm of seduction and shadows, Karen Marie Moning tells the enthralling tale of a woman who explores the limits of her mysterious powers as she enters a world of ancient sorcery—and confronts an enemy more insidious than she could ever have imagined.

He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.
Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul. 
As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds—with devastating consequences.…

So... howdy! Again! These books are awfully short, but holy smokes! I'm glad they are older ones that I can horde and stock up on and listen to one right after another because after THIS books freaking ending cliffhanger I would have DIED if I had to wait to start book 4!!! LOL! If you couldn't tell I'm basically loving this series but am sad that I've only two more books until Moning decides to start the series spinoff about Dani, whom to me is a seriously obnoxious, worthless character! LOL! I don't prefer her AT ALL. I'm loving my sweet pink painfully naive Mac! AND her strange, bizarre relationship with Jericho. I think I might do the pro's and con's set up with this book because there were some things in this book that annoyed the shit out of me and are irking me...

So for me, the cons start out slowly, and sort of crescendo (yeah, I used the word...) there at the utter cliffhanger ending... which would be another con if I didn't have book 4 already loaded up on my mp3 player, LOL! So... the book has it's hinky and utterly corny moments, such as... the freaking bikini / beach scenes she keeps having with Vlane. Gah! Those are getting worse and worse to grit my teeth and listen to, especially this last one in a freakin' gold lame' bikini?! Really? She's afraid of being near Jericho and his 'NESS and worried about her skirt riding up a little while they rumble and tumble around, but doesn't mind strutting all over a beach with VLANE of all people in a skimpy redonkulously tacky bathing suit?! Really?! *shaking me head* Just silly. And getting old. Another con would HAVE been the lack of sex, but um, the last like 5 minutes had my eye balls popping out and muttering to myself while attempting graphic design "Uhh, well that escalated quickly..." Holy smokes. Now I just need Moning to slow that shit down a notch and gimme a little more details than: and I had one in my mouth and one behind me. ROFL! Yeah, I went there...

So the first major pro for me and moment that really went AH-HA (well there are several....) was the birthday cake moment in the book. It really... hmmm, meant something to me. It was almost like the straw that broke poor Barrons' back! That poor man, or whatever he is. The fact that Mac is so blind to his... male'ness is also another 'con that I probably should have added up above there... ^^^ ! It's awfully frustrating for a reader/listener, so I can't possibly fathom the feelings the male character is going through...

I mentioned that perhaps Barrons is a man a second ago... and obviously for those who're reading, haven't read, or have already read this series you KNOW what he is, because it's got to be revealed at some point, but I have my sneaking suspicions of what, in fact, he is, and really am not sure if I should mention it here because I don't want to ruin anyone else's read of the book, so I won't! But just KNOW that I think I KNOW! And I am wondering if I am right or wrong, or?! It's suspenseful and awesome, I'm completely in love with these books! heheh! Which is interesting because I had given a listen to Moning's Highlander series and couldn't get past oh, book 3? or 4? The time travel thing was a wee too silly for me and confusing (I have a time travel issue... leave me alone!) but I do recall the vague mention of fae in the series and am thinking maybe they were the same sort of fae? Same characters? Or is this series before the Highlander ones? I dunno, might have to look into that... would be neat if the two series, though not a spin off, might touch on same names and characters very briefly... I love when that happens! heh! Okay... so wow. This review got long and kinda kooky. I'm going to go get to gettin' and start book 4 right away! I can't wait- ALTHOUGH I've just sneaked and noticed that book 4 isn't being read by Joyce Bean and have to say that her lovely voice and accents will be seriously missed! ;)

Absolutely lovin' this series:

Loaded and ready to start:
