Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In Karen Marie Moning’s latest installment of the epic Fever series, Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada are back—and the stakes have never been higher or the chemistry 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 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 life itself—can save the planet.

But those who seek the mythic song 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 on those war-torn streets, Mac will come face-to-face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.

Praise for Feverborn

“Moning’s world-building is extensive and inspired, and she never fails to keep the action fast and the stakes high. . . . The heroes’ shared danger, victory, loss and turmoil translate into emotional intensity and sexual tension.”The New York Times Book Review

“Karen Marie Moning is back, burning up the pages with scorching tension, gasp-out-loud surprises, unshakable danger and unexpected feels. Feverborn is simply impossible to put down. . . . I’m not sure how Moning is able to do it after eight books, but each novel proves more exciting than its predecessor as she continues to raise the stakes in this ongoing, exhilarating saga. Feverborn is a fight between ancient magic and renewed determination, a duel between old wounds and deep-seated love. Once again, you won’t be able to put this book down.”USA Today

Feverborn is at once the most gratifying and infuriating (in the best way possible) volume in the series yet. Moning’s proclivity for passion, emotion and shocking twists is showcased in breathtaking clarity. . . . I can damn near guarantee that fans of the series will be panting, both with heat, and a frenzied need to know what happens next.”PopWrapped

Feverborn is a masterpiece of epic proportions. With this book, Karen Marie Moning shows us exactly why she is such an indispensable writer in the genre.”—Under the Covers

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Bobbi Dumas
Moning's world-building is extensive and inspired, and she never fails to keep the action fast and the stakes high. Vigilance against the constant threat of attack is both exhausting and stimulating, and the heroes' shared danger, victory, loss and turmoil translate into emotional intensity and sexual tension sure to appeal to romance lovers.

I love KMM and all her books but I feel the latest two (Burned & Feverborn) were slightly lacking in character and plot development. They seemed more like fillers that failed to answer many questions from the previous storylines and created new storylines with even more unanswered questions which left me frustrated!!! How about closing out some of the ongoing storylines before introducing anymore? Mac's story has become stale and I found myself skimming through her chapters with more than a few eyerolls. She seems to have become whiney and stagnant. I would love her to focus less on how she/ her life used to be, everything that has gone wrong, all the things that can potentially go wrong and just embrace all the change. If she stopped being so broody maybe she would be a stronger asset to the group trying to save the world. I also think Mac and Barron's story should be left in the background. Not sure why its still a main focus with whole chapters devoted to it. I get it...they like to have sex...a lot. Awesome now let's move on to other potential relationships like Ryodan, Dancer, Christian & Dani/Jada. Let's have more about Dani/Jada all around. She has become such an interesting character but sadly, not enough chapters have been given to her to allow her story to be told. Please focus more on Dani/Jada in future books!

This is not a book, but an idea that should have been chapters in a book, it was seriously lacking and is not worth the cost. I am not sure if the author or the publishing company is making the decision to dumb down the storyline to extend the series or increase the profits. It is definitely a mistake, as I have read freebies and other self published authors who provided the entertainment that every reader wants. Charlaine Harris did the same thing with her Sookie Stackhouse books, the last few so bad that I would never read her again. I will not purchase future volumes as I feel the passion that drove the author is waning and I will be similarly disappointed. I like others like the story, but am unwilling to waste my time and money on less than from an author I enjoyed. A couple of the others in the series showed signs of this, but this one has been the worse. I know there will be fans who disagree, but anything is not better than nothing.

I am a big KMM fan and I really wanted to love this book but I was so disappointed. The last book was not the best but this was worse. It was absolutely boring. Nothing happened until the end and then a cliffhanger. So many questions remain unanswered from the last book. I never thought I would say this but I doubt I will buy any more of these books. Maybe it's passed time for the series to end.

Ugh. Loved diving headfirst back into the Fever world. As usual, another cliffhanger for an ending. Good gravy , we will have to wait another year for the conclusion. Some people will say Mac is whiny again in this book. I disagree. There's a point in the book where Mac describes herself. When you read it, youll find its a perfect analogy of why she can't do much but think. I give this book 4 and a half stars as I just wish there was more from Dani and more between Jada and Ryodan. Oh but there's at least 2 moments that I absolutely melt for Ryodan. I can't wait for the conclusion and I really hope that Jada/Dani gets her happy ever after (with Ryodan!)

Completely awesome and in keeping with the rest of the books. This series has never fizzled for me. It definitely is a filler book though. It's a continuation of Burned and a cliffhanger to Feversong, so don't expect a standalone plot line. That being said, I was still completely entertained every word of the way. Can't wait for the next one!

I loved this series. I read the first 6 twice in anticipation of the last two books but I have to say I'm let down. This latest edition to the series, like the one before, feels half done. To be honest, I feel ripped off. It's like karen wrote a really amazing sequel and then decided to chop it up into mini episodes so it could be dragged out into 5 more books intead of one. This latest edition is only 300 pages and change because the last 50 pages are the same reference section at the end of every book. I dont mind a short read but it needs to have a plot. It doesnt work to have a year between episodes to tell a single story. In Iced there was an introduction of new story lines but there was a plot as the anchor. The Hoar Frost King was realized, fought, and defeated AND we had so many new characters developed and story lines introduced to draw us in for the next read. This last book felt like a prologue...wheres the story? There was a chapter shoved in the middle of the book with the Unseelie King and the Seelie Queen that just took up space. Did we really need to have another story line introduced just to see it, and all the others, left to hang for the next two years? Im so dissappointed. Maybe Ill give it 6-7 years and wait for the rest of the "serial" to come out before picking up another Fever Book and read them all in one sitting...or maybe not.

My favorite series. 1-5 are amazing! I was really worried after reading Burned that the story was going in a direction that no longer held an interest for me. Honestly, I felt the novelty wear off and I wasn't as excited for Feversong. I have to say that I actually thoroghly enjoyed it even though the characters seem different than the first 5 books. Barrons is much softer. Mac is whiny and I felt like she was scatter brained or maybe I felt the whole book was a bit scattered (intentional?). Dani is dark, depressed, but still badass. I don't understand the Lor chapters. I never really felt he was integral to the story. And Dancer? I feel like he lost some cool points. He no longer seems like he's hiding secrets. He just seems, well, normal. The story line was good even with confusing transitions. The only thing that bugged me was the taboo from prior books seems to be okay in this one. However, I realize it was for a purpose. I'll always be a KMM fan. And the book was great but I'm over Mac/JBZ. I'm ready for Christians highlander book. And a Dani/Ryo.

So, I absolutely love these books. When people ask for recommendations, I ask them first if they like romance fiction. Then I direct them to the Highlander series but I always tell them that the Fever books are completely different. They are dark, gritty, urban fantasy. Feverborn is no different. We follow Mac's internal struggles, we feel her chaos and confusion. We also see Dani bleeding back into Jada, which, for those of us who missed the Mega, is a wonderful development. My only complaint is that the book is too short. Burned and Feverborn feel like one book not two. However, the ending is epic. It drops a bomb and leaves the reader hanging hard. Gobsmacked, that is what the ending left me...Gobsmacked.

5 stars- I absolutely LOVED it! I eagerly awaited the release of this book after Burned left me feeling a little disappointed. However, KMM upped her A-game, and I can say Feverborn is one of my favorite Fever books now. I devoured it! It does leave a few questions unanswered from previous books, and brought up a few more, but in all, I was 100% satisfied with it as several issues were resolved during the story. Yes, there is another cliffhanger ending, but it wouldn't be a KMM novel without one! I love books that leave me dying to know what comes next! Many of the characters we know and love are there, with the exception of Jo and Kat (who apparently have other things going on during this story), you'll find out a little more about the Nine (Ten?), and a glimpse at what happened to Dani/Jada in the Silvers, as well as watch events unfold from Mac's POV like in the first 5 fever novels. You'll get Christian, Lor, Dageus, Cruce, and the Keltars, plus learn more about the ZEWs and meet a new character that gives me the chills! What more can you ask for from a book in a series??? Maybe some answers, but I trust KMM will give us those before ending the series a few books out.

I, like many others, waited as the release was pushed back repeatedly. This book was a let down. It lacked the intensity that her other books had, it didnt draw you in to the world of mac or danni. To be honast, i would have preferred more of danni/Jada. And the lack of interest by Christian in Jada/danni also was a deviation that wasnt explained. Will i read the next book, yes. But i wont be in a rush to get it on the day it is available.

A must read for any KMM fan! Many twists and turns. Can't wait for the next one! You should read the books in order to really do the series justice.

FEVERBORN takes you deeper into the minds of Mac, Jada, and the Nine. We finally get to learn some of their secrets, but there's still so much we don't know. This book will take you for a ride full of twists and turns. Sometimes you'll want to close your eyes for fear of what's ahead, but instead you turn that next page, unable to look away. Another absolutely fantastic story by the incomparable Karen Marie Moning.
