Book Review – Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning

Fever #5

Fever #5

“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.” — 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 who 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, containing 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 haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself 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 to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.” (Goodreads) (608 pages, 18th January 2011, Delacorte Press)

This book gave me so much feels! It was to my opinion the perfect book to end this series with. Or at least the part about Mac. The story kept me entertained and I just couldn’t put it down. I didn’t have the feeling that any part of this book was to much to the story. It was an exciting book and I’m glad I picked it up so soon after reading the fourth book.

We finally got to know more about the past of Barrons and it was so unexpected but it made so much sense! Their relationship was also taken to the next level. I’m glad her parents had a bigger part to play in the story as well. They were so sweet and helpful and supported Mac no matter what. I always liked stories where family members are there for each other and help each other, but don’t necessarily agree. Those stories are the most interesting for me.

With some parts of the story I wanted to throw my book through the room, but I understand that Mac had to go through this. I’m now very eager to find out what happens with Dani, because we got a little taste of her voice in this book.

4.5 out of 5 stars
