Feversong by Karen Marie Moning

Title: Feversong 
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Series: Fever #9 
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: January 17, 2017

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning returns with the epic conclusion to her pulse-pounding Fever series, where a world thrown into chaos grows more treacherous at every turn. As Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada struggle to restore control, enemies become allies, right and wrong cease to exist, and the lines between life and death, lust and love, disappear completely.

Black holes loom menacingly over Dublin, threatening to destroy the Earth. Yet the greatest danger is the one MacKayla Lane has unleashed from within: the Sinsar Dubh—a sentient book of unthinkable evil—has possessed her body and will stop at nothing in its insatiable quest for power.

The fate of Man and Fae rests on destroying the book and recovering the long-lost Song of Making, the sole magic that can repair the fragile fabric of the Earth. But to achieve these aims, sidhe-seers, the Nine, Seelie, and Unseelie must form unlikely alliances and make heart-wrenching choices. For Barrons and Jada, this means finding the Seelie Queen who alone can wield the mysterious song, negotiating with a lethal Unseelie prince hell-bent on ruling the Fae courts, and figuring out how to destroy the Sinsar Dubh while keeping Mac alive.

This time, there’s no gain without sacrifice, no pursuit without risk, no victory without irrevocable loss. In the battle for Mac’s soul, every decision exacts a tremendous price.

“Sun, moon, and stars.”

It was so exciting to dive back into the Fever world. So many great characters and of course, we get more JZB. How can I not be happy?

Feversong starts with Mac possessed by the Sinsar Dubh and what a horrible thing IT is. IT wants nothing more than power and destruction and he would do anything to make it happen. But, our Mac is feisty and she wants out too. The Sinsar Dubh knows everything about Mac and now Mac has to do the same in order to survive and save the world. It helps that she has Jada/Danny, the Nine, JZB, The Highlanders, Christian and Cruse to help her out. 

“Holy psychotic PCs, Robin, we’ve a murderous MacBook on the loose!”

There is a lot of action in Feversong. Things move fast. My favorite parts were JZB and Mac and Dancer/Danny/Rhyodan interactions. There is also a great shock and a great sadness within the story. I didn't see the first one coming but I was expecting the second one. One last thing worth mentioning is Shazam. I adore him. He is going to cause trouble and I love it.

In a way, I'm sad to see Mac and JZB's love story end but I'm excited about all the other possibilities. We have Danny and Rhyodan's story which is going to be EPIC and then we have Kasteo, Kat, Christian, Lor... and let me tell you I think Lor being angry is scary stuff. 

“I'll never be her first. But one day I'll be her last.”

If you are a fan of the series, you can't miss this installment. 

I'm just going to take a second to mention the beautiful cover. Great job by KMM and her publisher for an amazing cover. 

Cliffhanger: No

4/5 Fangs
