Shadowfever (Fever #5)

"Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it's good."
MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. 
Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years. 
What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh—a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds. 
In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves. 
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card? 
From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

Okay... so. Wow. I just finished the above book, 5th book in the Fever Series~ Shadowfever and I've got the whole gambit of emo's going on right now! LOL! Gonna be frank here, (when am I not?!) I had to shut it off before listening to the strange ass fucking "Song" at the end. WTF was that? I got about 1.5 minutes in and um, yeah. It's some strange music with a sitar going on and uhhh, PHIL GIGANTE's voice saying random, creepy, sexy things... I never honestly thought I could feel embarrassed sitting home ALONE in a room, (my cat's even upstairs sleeping) but my cheeks got all hot and red and I cleared my throat and plucked out my ear buds and said out loud "Okay, enough of that... I'm good bro." LOL! It was that... disturbing? It bordered on sexy and creeptastically ODD! I dunno. *shudder* but since that was the last thing I HEARD from my mp3 player, it's fresh in the ol' noggin'! Sorry. Most, if not all, of you don't do the audiobook thing, but this was quite the errrr... "production". The dude's got the voice of the sexiest thing EVER walking this earth, I swear to god! Gigante does Barrons voice just like... so... well, that I think he may be my #1 favorite male narrator now! I'm sorry Holter Graham, step aside and take a back seat! :P Seriously though, this book was fantastic. I had left my last blog entry all freaked out and anxiety ridden, worrying that what I thought was going to happen, WOULD happen, and well, yeah, it DID happen, but it ended up being not so horrific as I thought it would be, even though I sniffled and privately sobbed like a baby through the first freaking half of the book! LOL! I know, mushy baby! Shuddup! This was the culmination of all the whole story, the "ending" for this plot (even though she's done a spin off, "Iced" which is Dani's book, but I am going to pass on that, I think!) and it was a fantastic ending. This whole series has been awesome, I'm SOOO glad that I finally sucked it up and started it! The sexy sexy took a couple of books, but once it took stage, it was my weakness, hahah! It made me HAVE to love the book, and I did! *bashful* This last one was a bit long, definitely not THE longest book I've ever listened to (um, hello Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon!) but it felt like it was kinda dragging along in parts, though it quickly picked back and moved right along for me. Everything balanced out and there was plenty of twists and turns to keep me on my toes and interested enough to finally fall madly in love with it! I recommend this series to ANYONE and EVERYONE, and even though I have that book mourning thing going on right now, I have many lined up on my mp3 player that I'm sooo excited to give a listen! Just not sure which I'll pick next! :) Happy reading everyone!
