In Karen Marie Moning’s latest installment of the epic #1 New York Times bestselling Fever series, the stakes have never been higher and the chemistry has never been hotter. Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, FEVERBORN is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness and the redemptive power of love.

When the immortal race of the Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making—a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of all life itself—can save the planet.

But those who seek the mythic Song—Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada—must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: The Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among—and within—themselves.

Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And in those war-torn streets, Mac will come face to face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.
Now I went into this book extremely nervous, because I hated the sixth book, and I neither liked or disliked the previous book. Basically the previous two books, weren't up to Karen Marie Moning Standard. But, now she has upped her "A" game. Finally, Karen Marie Moning is back!

FEVERBORN was 10X better than the previous two books, but there were still some things that needed work that made me drop a star, but still incredibly AMAZING! I think we're finally getting somewhere with the new story-line. Thank god for that because I was getting bored! And be Warned! This book is full of spoilers! No way not to review the book and not talk about them! Haven't read the book! Don't read my review!

Mac/Barrons Okay! So many people are getting sick of her, but honestly I'm not! I love that KMM switched these books to multiple POV's, b/c I Just love being in Mac's world and inside her head and probably b/c I get to see more of her and Barrons together. I was highly disappointed in the previous book w/the little Mac/Barrons stuff. But motherfucker we get so much more of it in FEVERBORN! I love their talk during sex! Yum! Thank you for that KMM!

Ryodan/Jada For the most part Jada aka. Dani is still being a little prick through most of the book. I would love for her character to develop more at a faster pace. By the end of the book, Jada had lowered that shell of her a bit and I loved what I saw, but I want more of that! And Ryodan! Since it seems like Barrons has softened a little bit due to Mac, I love seeing your bad ass, won't take shit from no one attitude! MOAR! And Ryo, That teddy Bear scene was HILARIOUS!

Alina Are you fucking kidding me?! Seriously?! The return of Alina is one thing I AM NOT ON BOARD WITH! We don't know if it's really her or what. It's assumed that without Mac's knowledge she brought back Alina from the dead with the help of the book. People die for a reason. It makes it seem like everything Mac went through in the original books aka. 1-5 was pointless and for nothing because everything she did was to avenge her sister! WTF?! Don't bring Alina back just for the sack of no more original plot/story-line! Her being back better have a point!

Now things I hated in the last book were addressed in this one. The multiple POV's? It was better this time. It was toned down a bit. We had Mac, Jada, Christian, Lor and Cruce. The only thing I didn't like is when I'm maybe invested with Mac the POV moves to someone else which is annoying. And some POV are all out of order, like one event happened, but then they switch to a couple of hours earlier or something. I didn't like that.

Now we ended the book with a cliffhanger! Not really a surprise, but I have to say at this point I'm kind of sick of it. Every single one of her books end with a cliffy and I'm kind of over it and I'm not gonna go crazy with them like I used to, because it just ends up taking over my life. And most of the time her books take forever to release. It's ridiculous! Though, with that ending, I'm really intrigued with what's gonna happen now with Mac and the book!

So, FEVERBORN was a thousand times better and a major improvement compared to the last two books! Thank god, KMM is back! Now I can go back to being excited about her books! Who knows when the next book is coming out, hopefully no longer than a year from now. But I"ll be reading it because I adore this series and the fever world!
