Review: Feversong

MacKayla Lane and Jericho Barrons return in the epic conclusion to the pulse-pounding Fever series, where a world thrown into chaos grows more treacherous at every turn.

As Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada struggle to restore control, enemies become allies, right and wrong cease to exist, and the lines between life and death, lust and love, disappear completely. Black holes loom menacingly over Dublin, threatening to destroy the earth, yet the greatest danger is the one MacKayla Lane has unleashed from within: The Sinsar Dubh—a sentient book of unthinkable evil—has possessed her body and will stop at nothing in its insatiable quest for power. 

The fate of Man and Fae rests on destroying the book and recovering the long-lost Song of Making, the sole magic that can repair the fragile fabric of the earth. But to achieve these aims, sidhe-seers, the Nine, Seelie, and Unseelie must form unlikely alliances and make heart-wrenching choices. For Barrons and Jada, this means finding the Seelie queen, who alone can wield the mysterious song, negotiating with a lethal Unseelie prince hell-bent on ruling the Fae courts, and figuring out how to destroy the Sinsar Dubh while keeping Mac alive.

This time, there’s no gain without sacrifice, no pursuit without risk, no victory without irrevocable loss. In the battle for Mac’s soul, every decision exacts a tremendous price.

Feversong picks right off where Feverborn ended with Mac opening the Sinsar Dubh in order to save herself along with Dani. Now the Sinsar Dubh is possessing Mac’s body and is happily creating havoc on its quest for power along with hurting Mac’s friends. Meanwhile, Mac is herself is trapped and must find a way to fight in order to get control of her body again and it must be soon because it’s a race against time because of the black holes that threaten to engulf and swallow the Earth.

When Karen Marie Moning announced that Feversong was going to be the conclusion to the Fever series and Mac and Barrons’ story, I was heartbroken that one of my favorite series was ending. However, after finishing Feversong, I realized something. It’s not the end of the series, it’s only the end of a story arc. As you read Feversong,  you can see the potential future stories about certain other characters that Karen Marie Moning could one day write about. For example, I’m sure everybody were expecting Ryodan and Dani to finally get together. Sadly, that was not the case in Feversong. At first I was disappointed but then I realized that it was still too soon for Dani. Like Ryodan said, Dani stills needs to grow and find herself. Yes, there is still much to be told and looks like Dani is mostly likely going to be the next to have her story told.

Overall, I think Feversong was an amazing and perfect installment to end Mac and Barron’s story. I look forward to the future stories Karen Marie Moning will one day write because I have no doubt that we have not seen the last of the Fever world.
