In the world of dark fantasy, there aren’t many names bigger than Karen Marie Moning. She has the guts and glory and is everything a New York Times Best-Selling author should be. I’ll give you a brief run-down of the five books in the Fever series so far. The good, the gorgeous, and the downright dangerous can be found after the break.

In Darkfever, the first book in the Fever Series, we meet Mackayla “Mac” Lane; over-privileged southern belle with the world at her perfectly manicured fingertips. That is, until she receives a phone call from her frantic and dying sister Alina. In an attempt to avenge her older sister’s death, Mac travels to Dublin, Ireland and is suddenly thrust into the world of the unknown, complete with sensual immortals, ancient legends and monsters she cannot explain. Mac learns she is a sidhe-seer, a mortal human woman who can see through Fae glamour; and finds herself imersed in an age-old battle between the Fae and human realms, what and who she is, and an ancient book, the Sinsar Dubh, that could end the fight, strengthen the walls between the realms, and end the war of all wars.

In the second book, Bloodfever, Mac continues her quest for the Sinsar Dubh with the help of the brooding and mysterious mercenary Jericho Barrons. On her quest, we meet many exciting characters and more Sidhe-seers like Mac. There’s torture, revenge, and hope. The walls are coming dangerously close to crashing down and it’s up to Mac to stop them.

Faefever, the third book in the series, brings us to a dramatic climax as Mac has encountered the book. We begin to learn more about the elusive Barrons when Mac sees things about him that she cannot piece together. Mac and Dani, another sidhe-seer, fight back to back against the Fae just mere days before Samhain (all hallows eve) and the walls come crashing down. As the book draws to a close, our heroine is turned priya (a woman who is turned into an extreme nymphomaniac by a Fae prince.) How will Mac overcome something so awful that there has never been a record of anyone recovering?

Book four, Dreamfever, opens with Dani recalling the events of the walls falling and what happened to Mac. As Mac begins to recover from her mindless state, we see a different side of Jericho Barrons; a tender side. Once Mac is recovered we find she has lost months of her life while being priya. It is now a race against time to save the world. The power grids in Dublin and other cities around the world are down, the Shades have helped kill 1/3 of the world’s population, and Mac can no longer sense the book. In a last ditch attempt at saving the world and her family in Ashford, Georgia, Mac climbs through the Fae mode of transportation, the Silvers, to find Christian MacKelter and bring the walls back up.

Finally, in Shadowfever, some of our answers are revealed. I won’t reveal much about this book, but I’ll tell you this: things are not what they seem. We find out what Mac really is, we get a closer glimpse at why Barrons wants the Sinsar-Dubh, and we find out things about the Fae Seelie court and the Sidhe-seers and the deep dark secrets one must keep to survive.

Karen Marie Moning has confirmed that there will be another three book series starring Dani, Ryodan, and Christian MacKelter. We also get a closer look at Dani’s boyfriend “Dancer” who managed to sneak under the radar in Shadowfever. It has also been confirmed that a graphic novel is in the works from Del Rey, featuring Mac and Barrons. Karen has said that many unanswered questions about the duo from Shadowfever will be answered in the graphic novel. It has not been said who Karen will be working with on this graphic novel but as soon as I know, you’ll know!
