URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Fever 2: Blood Fever - Karen Marie Moning

Release Date: 13/10/11


I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

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.


The second fever book by Karen Marie and one that continues to build upon the success of the original. It’s quirky, it takes the world of the fae back to the original tales and the darker aspects of man and faerie rise to the fore in this epic battle of darkness and light where the reader learns that not everything is black and white with hidden agenda’s ruling the roost with the principle character caught in the middle.

Add to this Karen’s fantastic writing style with great pace, cracking prose and witty one lines with a character that tries to remain true to her original goal perhaps to learn that vengeance is as dark as the blackest night, no matter how good the intentions are… Magical.
