Review: Shadowfever (Fever #5) by Karen Marie Moning

4 Stars
Series: Fever
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Fae
Pages: 594
In Karen Marie Moning’s final Fever novel, Shadowfever, we again start where we left off in the last, which in this book was the death of her ‘Guardian’. The monster that came to her when she called the number Barrons gave her IYD (If Your Dying), and at the time she thought she was going to be dying but turns out, she didn’t need to have called, but the end result was her ‘Guardian’ dying and her finding out that it was Barrons and she had just killed him.

We have followed Mac’s journey from her finding out about her sister Alina’s death, to her meeting Barrons, the Lord Master, learning he was her sisters lover, her learning to fight and kill, of eating Unseelie flesh and what it did to her, finding OOP (Objects of Power), turning Pri-ya, Barrons bringing her back, learning that there were nine like him in all, and more.

In this novel we take the last leg of Mac’s journey (So Far) with the Sinsar Dubh, the book of evil knowledge from the Unseelie King. A book that Mac has been hunting but now is hunting her and trying to use her loved ones to hurt her.

We follow Mac through her grief of Barrons death, her trying to gain the book though the Lord Master, and the knowledge that she will either save the world or destroy it for all.

I loved this book as with the last one, I was very sad and anxious when Barrons died, I knew he was coming back (my sisters read the book) I just did not know how or anything) so the anticipation worked me through what I have to admit was some slightly frustrating parts for me.

I understand that Mac had to work through her grief and then feelings for Barrons but still I can not help that I was shouting the equivalent of ‘just tell him already and do it!’ in my head most of the time. Really not my fault, I can’t help wanting more Barrons in the book. . .

Like in the last novel where we got some of Dani’s point-of-view we also get some of hers in this novel too, as well as ‘The Dani Daily’ which is a rag that Dani is publishing telling about things going on AWC (After the Wall Crash). Very neat, this lets us still be in Mac’s POV but get some of Dani’s POV while not actually switching POV’s.

Now, no more details because this plot is way to complex for my ‘explaining while not giving too much away’ abilities. We have a lot of Mac going maybe this and no not that and yes it is that to put it simply, a whole lot of shocking revelations are thrown at Mac in this novel as well ones that I’m not sure she could deal with and some that did really get all the way explored so I am hoping for another book (who isn’t?).

I would recommend this novel to anyone the series as well but as before, I would recommend picking up the previous books in the series first as though you might be able to start from any book in the series, the author does give us a good bit of last book(s) info, to get the over all experience and understanding of what is going on you need to start from the beginning.
