In a Broken World, Feverborn Gets the Band Back Together
Feverborn: A Fever Novel - Karen Marie Moning

While obviously this later day arc (from books 6-8) isn't as compelling as the first one, I'm still getting a ton of joy out of slipping back into the Feververse. I've even forgiven KMM a bit for Iced, which was a pretty serious misfire in my book: I can see what she was trying to do, even if she whiffed it. 

 

Anyway, latest review at B&N SciFi, which, fair warning, I pretty much wrote for the Fever Faithful.

Burned
Burned (Fever: Dani O'Malley) - Karen Marie Moning,Natalie Ross,Phil Gigante

Back to the Fever series. This was the first one to come out since I had caught up on the series, and it was another great book. I do feel a bit bad for the series, since it is clear that based on the backlash Iced got, the idea of a Dani O'Malley trilogy is gone.

 

I was looking through Shadowfever while listening to this and it says at the beginning that this ends Mac's story. Burned follows multiple POVs and Mac's is the most prevalent and drives the story. Maybe at one point her story was going to be done, but this book goes firmly back into Mac's storyline.  Dani is in this book, but at a much reduced time that I think she would have if the original storyline idea had been followed. This book felt like KMM either dropped or condensed most of her story.

 

I still really liked the book and I love Mac. I wish I had been able to read the original plan, even though there would have been less of her.

 

The book did jump around a bit more than I'd like, but the story is fun and exciting. One highlight was the chapters from the perspective of Lor, one of the nine

or based off the end, is it the ten now?

(spoiler show)

 

Both narrators are incredible in the accents that they can do and Phil Gigante's Lor was the highlight. Recommended if you enjoy the series. The eighth book, Feverborn is already scheduled to come out in the fall :)

Catch the Fever

 

"Hope strengthens. Fear kills."

 

I stayed up late last night finishing my annual, Christmas vacation reread of Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. I heart Mac and Barrons. So much. In fact, I would bet a batch of chocolate chip cookies that Barrons is the jerkiest, yet most loved hero out there. And he has the best lines. The kind that make me melt no matter how many times I read them. Le sigh. Should such a man exist in real life, I'm not sure how we'd all survive.

 

Goodbye, my dear sweet Barrons. I bid you adieu until July and the release of BURNED.

 

(FINALLY!!)

Iced (Audiobook)
Iced (Fever, #6; Dani O'Malley, #1) - Karen Marie Moning

I picked this up while I was still reading the Fever series since it was on sale on Audible. I knew it was part of a new series set after Shadowfever but I didn't know anything about it. I finished Shadowfever and excitedly checked out the summary and review for this book.

 

And was let down. I put this book off for a while, but finally decided to listen to it. I really liked it. Natalie Ross is an amazing Dani and was the main reason this book worked. She narrates all the female roles and Phil Gigante narrates for the males. My only issue with Ross was most of the female sidhe seers sounded similar, but that's also because they're from the same region. Gigante's voices were all different between Christian, Dancer, and Ryodan.

 

I understand where people are coming from for the creepy aspect of this book. But it's one character, and he's clearly out of his mind. If Burned is released as an audiobook with these narrators I am really excited.

 

 

Also, I have to say I'm going for Ryodan/Dani. Though, Jo will probably need to die so she won't get hurt (emotionally). I mean that in a nice way. I think Dani and Dancer could be a good couple but I think she'll end up with one of the immortals. But hey, Dancer is still a mystery and could have more going on.
