Fever Book #5
Genre: Urban Fantasy
MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.
Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.
What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief, while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King that contains the power to create and destroy worlds.
In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac, and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman that haunts her dreams? More importantly, who is Mac and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?
From the luxury of the Lord Master's penthouse, to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover, to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac's journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and make a choice that will either save the world...or destroy it.
What a ride the Fever series has been. I am sad that SHADOWFEVER was the last book but I was blown away and couldn't have asked for a better last book. Everything you have been questioning or wondering about will be answered and I'm telling you you will have never guessed the things that are revealed. I am on information overload with all the revelations. I couldn't read this fast enough. I was so mad at the book in the first part but I slowly made my way back as I was reading on. I dont think I have never read about more stubborn characters in a series then what the characters were like in SHADOWFEVER, I wanted to jump in the book and smack them across the head. I dont want to list any spoilers so I will leave off saying WOW what a ride!! If you haven't picked uo and started reading the Fever series you are missing out on a fabulous series, I think I might have to start over and read the books again to see what clues I might have missed.
I gave it 5/5 Stars
