Synopsis On GR:

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.


“I want to be Jericho Barrons when I grow up.” 

I had this book, which is one of my most expected reads of 2016, for more than a month before real life finally gave me some break to be able to read it properly. During that time I've noticed on GR that once again Fever's newest intallment provoked some mixed reactions, this time maybe more than ever, but I stayed away from potential spoilerish reviews until I finished the book.

To be honest, after the previous book- Burned, #7, I was pretty confused by some of the negative reviews, because I thought the book was pretty awesome, but this time, despite my rating, I can understand to some extent the readers who were disappointed by it. The biggest flaws of this book and things which prevented me from rating it 5 stars are the occasional info dump the author put us through and Mac's inner monologues which tended to become quite annoying from time to time. Other than that I have no bigger complaints. Ok, Mac' s libido was a little out of control too, but hey- as long as it includes Jerricho Barrons I'm more than okay with it. ;)

My favorite parts of the book: 
- I want to be Jerricho Barrons when I grow up
- Jada/Dani vs. Ryodan
 - Alina situation
 - And the ending? It was epic, but damn Moning and her damn cliffhangers!

This is the 8th installment in the series and Moning pretty much spoiled us with the flawlessness of her fantasy world and writing. I agree that this installment wasn't on the same level as her other books, probably the weakest in the series, but still it remains one of my favorite urban series out there and it will be pretty hard to dethrone it. 4 shaky stars! Btw. considering how the things ended the next one has the potential to be epic.

RATING: 4 /5 stars

* Check out my other reviews of the Fever series:



  1. I so need to get back into this series! I haven't read Iced yet, but I do have Burned and Feverborn as well. Gah!

    1. Hope you'll like it when you do! *fingers crossed*

  2. I also liked Burned but Feverborn wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. I love Mac and Barrons but its time to give Jada/Dani and Ryodan more of the spotlight. The ending was good and I can't wait to find out what happens. I also gave it 4 stars. Great review!

    1. Ditto! The ending was one of the best parts. Thanks, Kathy! :)
