Do you like to be frightened? Then read this series, it is a scary and fun ride. MacKayla Lane (Mac) was a simple, party girl who worked as a bartender in Ashford, Georgia until she learned of her sister’s brutal murder in Dublin, Ireland.  Now she is in Ireland, dealing with much larger problems that the murder of her sister. The Walls between our world and the prison world of the evil Unseelie Faery are being breached. Mac working with or without Barrons help is doing everything in her power to stop that from happening.

Faefever is the third book in the Fever Series. To date there are a total of four books in the series with book five, Shadowfever,  to be released January 18, 2011. This book is a contemporary fantasy book, also known as Urban Fantasy.  The story is told in a first person narrative with MacKayla Lane’s voice and thoughts as we follow her around.

 I was feeling down-right scared while reading this book. Moning has a great imagination and I love the characters she creates in this story. She has a gift for creating tension as the story unfolds.  I loved this book and every book in the series. It starts out immediately following the end of the second book. Mac is continuing to learn what is happening and more importantly what needs to happen to stop the evil from invading our world. The book keeps getting more interesting and more frightening. There is the ongoing sexual tension between Mac and both Barrons and V’lane.  Mac also comes to terms with the Sidhe-Seer’s coalition, although neither Mac nor Rowena like each other any better. We also learn more about the gorgeous Christian and the role he plays.The ending of the book was very astonishing and once again, it did not really have any kind of an ending. It does however really make me want to quickly read the next book to see what is going to happen.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading contempory fantasy with a female protagonist who is cute and quirky.  This series is great because it deals with seelie and unseelie faeries rather that vampires and werewolves. There is also great sexual tension between Mac and Barrons, so if you enjoy books that include some sex in them, then you will enjoy this book. However, if you are looking for a stand alone story, then stay away or wait until all the books have been written and read them all at once.  Every book in the series ends with a cliff-hanger.
