Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And in those war-torn streets, Mac will come face to face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.

Wendy’s Review

I know that I might be repeating myself, but I can’t help it.  I simply adored the first five books in the Fever series.  Shadowfever was one of the best finales I’ve read, until it suddenly wasn’t a finale and Karen Marie Moning announced that there would be even more books in this world.  I was ecstatic, because that meant more Barrons!

Iced was awful, though.  I try to always stay objectionable, but honestly it was just awful.  I almost quit, until people convinced me to keep reading and I found out that Mac would be the main character again, and hopefully that meant that we wouldn’t have to read Dani’s warped childhood anymore.

To say that Burned was a step up is putting it mildly.  I actually enjoyed the series again.  It wasn’t the magic that I thought the first five books were, but it was reminiscent and it made me hopeful.  It meant that when Feverborn was released I was actually excited for it.  I couldn’t wait to read.

I was overjoyed when Feverborn was even better than Burned!  It was funny, and fast paced.  It even made me cry!  Jada has really grown on me, and I know that there are even better things to come with her.  There was a shocking twist with Mac that I never saw coming, and I have no idea where it’s going to go or how it happened.  And that cliffhanger!  I’ll tell you what Karen Marie Moning always got right, torturing us oh so sweetly, are spectacular cliffhangers!  I’m even more excited for the next book!

I don’t want to say too much, because I don’t want to give anything away.  I’ll just leave it with this:  Bring it on KMM!  I’m ready for you!
