Book Favourites: Fever series by Karen Marie Moning
I’m going to kick this new feature off with one of my all-time favourites, the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. I managed to write a review for the first book in the series, Darkfever, but after that I just couldn’t write any coherent thoughts down any more. One of the main reasons for that is that I flew through this series, immediately picking up the next after finishing.
Why this series is awesome:
- It’s set in Dublin. I love unusual settings, and this one in particular interested me. Even though I’ve been to England countless times I don’t know anything about the Irish culture. After reading this series I really want to travel there and visit the places MacKayla visited too
- Even though the main character Mac may start out annoying, she goes through dramatical change. Throughout the series she goes from pretty pink Barbie to kick-ass fae killer. I found her change very realistic and I liked how Mac notices that she’s changing too
- It has Fae. Not the pussy flying kind, but the mythological Irish kind. For those of you not acquainted with Irish folklore: fae are bad news. Even those from the Seelie (the “good” kind) court are not to be trusted – there are fae that kill you by making you laugh until you die
- Barrons. He is the ultimate alpha male and while I’m usually more fan of the underdog, he is soooo swoon worthy. I fell in love with him in the first two books, was a little bit annoyed with him in the third, and loved him even more in the last two
- PLOT TWISTS. I’m not going to spoil anything, but at the showdown there are some twists that I hadn’t seen coming for miles. Massive props for Ms Moning for pulling those off
- Barrons owns a book store. Did I mention that already?
I recommend this series if you like:
- Urban fantasy
- Alpha males
- Irish faeries
- Lots of action
- A kicking-ass heroine
