Book Review: Shadowfever (fever series #5) by Karen Marie Moning
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Plot: The finale to the series is a whole lot of twits and turns that will clear everything that has been on your mind from the onset of this series.
Will Cause Erratic heartbeats
Shadows are wonderful things. They hide pains and conceal motives.
Shadow Fever is the last in the Fever series that will have Mackayla Lane, although the series does continue with Dani o’ mailey, I doubt Barrons will be making an appearance there and because of which I decided to end it here when things are nice. Shadow fever being the last book comes with a whole lot of revelations and new developments. In fact so much happens in this book that it is hard to find air. There is not a single moment where you can settle yourselves because things are spinning with unseen twists and churns all along
Fever Series is the only series that I hate on one end and yet find myself returning to it again and again. When I started its first book, Darkfever, I had fell in love with the unique plot and world of seelie and unseelie but as the story progressed, it started bugging me as to how much the central character, MacKayla Lane represented everything that I hated in a female character. While Darkfever showed its presence, it was the second book, Bloodfever that actually emphasized the pink obsessed and totally pampered and spoilt female character of mackayla lane. For me, her character was more like a mockery or as the worst side that a modern independent woman can turn into. After Bloodfever I had decided that I will not return to this series because I could not tolerate all the pink-ness and boy obsessed character of mac Kayla Lane but then I could not get Barrons out of mind and I ended up picking fae fever, the third book in the series and fae fever brought back my love for this series with its story development and this was intensified in double fold by its sequel Dreamfever. I think in the entire series its Fae Fever and Dreamfever that comes with a huge cliff hanger that you can’t escape picking up the next book. In fact Dreamfever leaves you with a panic attack and no way will you be able to survive without picking the last in the series and its sequel, shadow fever
Dying for someone isn’t the hard thing. The man that dies escapes. Plain and simple. Game over. End of pain…Try living for someone. Through it all-good, bad, thick, thin, joy, suffering. That’s the hard thing.
From the very beginning, shadow fever kept pushing me to the state of minor heart attacks Things keeps heading your way like a heavy boulder enough to take you off the hill. . There is so much happening that i was sweating with such heat and tension happening in this book. All your answers that have been haunting regarding the characters get answered with this finale and things thankfully end without any loose end. .
evil is a completely different creature. Evil is bad that believes it’s good
The book can be a bit lengthy but then there are so many things that needed to be revealed that it is kind of expected to go in lengths. The language is simple and intriguing but narration kind of gets preachy in between just like its previous book and kind of halting the flow in between but then amidst so many things happening, this is not a big obstacle. This is the craftiest and twisted one from the entire series and is a great finale to a good series. I am calling it finale because I have no intention of continuing this series because whatever glimpses of Dani o’mailey I have seen is not impressive enough to actually embark on a whole book that is based on her.
