Feversong by Karen Marie Moning(Fever Series, #9)
Published: Dell Mass Market Edition(2017)
I just finished the most amazing, emotionally gripping, tear-jerking dark romance fiction ever and what I learned from the book, is the one lesson that binds us all: We are powerfully fragile.
So, yes. I did shed a few tears over this one. This commonly happens if I have stuck with a series for a while and if an author really knows what they are doing. A tale that has stuck with me for the better part of 11 years, hits its conclusion.
So here is the gist of the Feversong. I will try to be concise because it is kind of a complex story.
- The world is being eaten by giant black holes and only the Song of Making can (possibly) eradicate them.
- Mac is the possible hero and she must wield the song, but how?
- The Sinsar Dubh(evil, psychotic presence) book, thrives inside of her and turns her into this brutal, blood slinging killing machine-thus, the Song of Making shall not happen anytime soon– we think.
- Her relationship with the “atavistic” and superbly hot Barrons still ignites the pages, but now Jada/Dani is scorching the story with her love triangle between Ryodan and Dancer. Ryodan is thousands of years old, sexy and methodical as well as an immortal beast while Dancer has the most soulful, arresting eyes and is about 17(?) with a huge…brain. He is crazy smart and handsome.
- Instead of trying to figure out the freaking song to repair earth, Mac must get herself together or she will lose herself and all she loves.
Again, tear-jerker. Lots of stuff I did not expect.
The Fever series takes place in Dublin, Ireland and the characters are of human and fae origins. Then you have some monsters that will give you nightmares. Ever hear of the Crimson Hag? Her dress is made of guts.
The lesson I learned from this entire series is that being just human is a gift. The fae can barely show emotion and do not understand the big, boundless emotion called Love. But it is this part of us that can undo us or make us strong. Make us fragile, or powerful.
Sometimes in life, we get caught up in thinking we are just so beyond reproach. That we are above the ants and roaches and grass we tread on. We really do! Yet- check this out- we all eventually expire.
In the novel, the group of friends including the Nine immortals(man those dudes are hot, Dang!) But that’s not important.
They all realize that earth could end in a week or less.
How would you spend your life if you knew you had exactly one week to live here?
Read the book. Read the freaking series.
Live. Breathe. Love. Please?
