Shadowfever (Fever, #5)

Shadowfever (Fever, #5) - Karen Marie Moning She warms his frost. He cools her fever.That’s me every time I read the Fever series. Every. Fucking. Time.Since I got used to giving you a song for each book, I guess I can do another one for Shadowfever as well. What comes in my mind that is perfect for describing Shadowfever is Porcupine Tree’s Sleep Together. I think my reasons are obvious. To the absolute joy of the female gender, Mac and Barrons couldn’t keep their hands off one another in this book. Get a room you guys!The first time I’ve read Shadowfever, I thought it was the end of the series. I was expecting a shitload of answers and a decent conclusion to the series. Then something awesome and terrifying happened. Karen Marie Moning announced two more books. TWO BOOKS! I mean. What? My world just fell off its axis. I am so happy and yet I’m so scared. What if they are worse than the other Fever books? What if Mac and Barrons’ romance gets shitty? What if the story goes to hell? So many what-ifs. Too many. I’m anxiously waiting and biting my nails while at it. Dani’s Iced is going to be out on October 30th, 2012. Patiently waiting. Or at least I’m trying to.Back to Shadowfever. It’s been a while since I stressed myself as much as I did with this book. I had so many questions, so many theories. And they went to hell in a handcart with every chapter. Karen Marie Moning shamelessly played with my mind all along and I could not beat her until, say, 75% along the way. Very frustrating, but in the best of way. At least I was entertained. And shame on me, I forgot most of the stuff that happened. When I was reading Shadowfever for the second time, I couldn’t remember much. Except for Mac and Barrons’ hot scenes. Oh, brain, you have such a way of selecting relevant information.I loved how the story evolved. Now that the future two Fever books are set in stone, I’m not so bothered by the ending anymore. At least I’m hoping that my questions will be answered. Mac was great, even though she became a bit too suicidal for my taste. Yes, I do see her “fuck you I’m badass” attitude as suicidal. She had a death wish, that’s for sure. Barrons was an ass 80% of the time and pissed me off constantly. He did make up for it at the end. Kind of. I used to have more positive feelings for him. The second time I went through the series they significantly decreased. I still admire the sonovabitch though.V’lane. Haha. V’lane. How to put it nicely? I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO! Did you listen? No, of course you didn’t. The Dreamy Eyed Guy (DEG) was one of my favorites. I had a suspicion that he was [part of]The Unseelie King but I wasn’t expecting him to be so – what’s the word? – pleasant. I’m curious to see if he’ll appear in the future books. I sure hope so.Christian was also great. I hope he ends up hooking up with Dani. I really see this happening. But first, let Dani get a bit older. It’s kind of disturbing right now, when she’s so young. Rowena got what she deserved. Ryodan was weird. Oh, and I also loved K’Vruck. And that’s about it. Did I mention that I’m scared shitless about the upcoming Fever books?My reviews for the other Fever books:Darkfever (Fever #1)Bloodfever (Fever #2)Faefever (Fever #3)Dreamfever (Fever #4)
