Sage’s Book Review VII: The Fever Series, By Karen Marie Moning

An intriguing gothic world - courageous Heroine, mystifying Hero, repulsive villains all spun into an adventure which keeps the reader enthralled and the pages turning!
Southern girl, Mackayla Lane (Mac) spends her leisure time in her pink-polka dotted bikini which perfectly matched her I’m Not-Really-a-Waitress-Pink manicure and pedicure, and diligently suntanned at her parents pool. Mac tends bar at night, and attends just enough community college courses to keep Mom and Dad from nagging her. It was an ideal life, until news of her sister’s murder turned her effortless existence upside down.
The sorrow of her sister’s death steadily damages her family, and the Dublin Police close the case on her sister’s murder. When Mac retrieves a disturbing message on her broken cell phone from her sister-only hours before her death, she is determined to find her sisters murderer and provide her family with closure. Mac defies her parents and flies to Dublin in search of answers to her questions, but what she uncovers is a world she didn’t know existed and secrets about herself she would rather not know.
Mysterious, dark and handsome alpha, Jericho Barrons appears in her life. With his help she learns of the monsters that target humans, Fae, or Fairies, who travel in-between the realms of the human and Fae worlds. Mac discovers she is a sidhe-seer- a human who can see past the illusion cast by Fae to camouflage there true appearance.  She possesses powers too, a human Fae object of power detector-or OPPs for short and a Null-the ability to freeze Fae. Her OPPs power is the only way to find mythical Sinsar Dubh-a lost dark book of Fae, which is needed to stop the Fae of the Unseelie Court. 
The Fever Series is Urban Fantasy, not the typical romance that I usually review, but between the funny first person narratives from Mac’s point of view, the sexual tension between Mac and Barrons, and the encounters with the ruthless Vlane-an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women, it had me begging for more.  I confess…I read all five in the series in a month.
Released July 24, 2012 is the latest in the series, Fever Moon, A graphic Novel. Look below for a peek into the amazing world of Mac and Barrons.
