I can't believe I waited so long to pick up this series. Dark Urban Fantasy readers, if you haven't checked this series out, do it as soon as you can, it's amazing! This apocalyptically-gritty story was both fascinating and titillating. The thin wall of reality protecting the human world from the desolate reality of the Unseelie prison is growing increasingly unstable and barely holding. If it falls, it's going to be survival of the fittest and humans are no match for the starved Unseelies, who have been denied their freedom for almost one million years. Their ferocious hunger for destruction is infinite and limitless. The impending invasion may be inevitable and unstoppable and the future has never looked so bleak for Mac. This book easily became one of my top favorites! I highly recommend this book and the entire series in order Darkfever and Bloodfever. Mac's character is growing on me more and more, and while she still mourns for the party-girl that she used to be, at least Mac has accepted her new life with courage. Jericho Barrons remains a surly enigma, and I had a feeling not much would be revealed regarding his character in book three. However, I'm expecting a snowball of change will start rolling down the hill with books four and five, and it's time to give us more on Mac and Barrons relationship than unquenched attraction. But that's just my opinion...

Yeah, there is some exciting action. Yeah, the sexual tension between Mac, Jericho and Vlane oozes from the pages. You learn some more interesting things about relics, the book, etc but NOTHING happens. The story doesn't progress beyond what has already happened.
Don't get me wrong I loved the first two books and I enjoyed most of the antics of this book until I started getting close to the end and I was like wait nothing has happened there should be more and BOOM it ends. I think that every book in series should be able to stand alone and should offer something of value, of individual merit to the series, other to kill time for the characters in the book. I think FaeFever was just killing time in order to get Mac to the next book. Not a bad read, just leaves you hanging.

I was looking forward to this one, but was disappointed with it. Was this really a third book? Or just a long continuation of the second? Still do not know much about the characters ( against Mac or for Mac? Good or evil?). Not much happened to move the story forward by answering some questions and creating new ones. I really disliked the ending...what just happened? Where were either of the two characters that would normally have showed up at some point to save her or at least help her somewhat? I just found this installment to be very disappointing. It almost seemed as though the author may have been rushed to get another book out?

I was hoping this was the last series. Unfortunately, it is not. There are two more. Series one was good, two was ok, and three just sort of dragged. I

The first book was fantastic. The second installment was disappointing and this one has told me that I will not buy another book by this author without a thorough check to see if there is some kind of substance to the plot. She is wasting my time with this supposed story. There is no purpose to this book as there was no purpose to the 2nd one. If she is trying to create a 'series' it is clear that she is as misguided as Purdue's Ag alumni who hold fish fries with out serving fish. (she's offering stories with no story) I'm very disappointed with Moning. The only 'Fever' here is one of an angry and disappointed fan. I have loved her previous books. Some were a bit thin, but all were enjoyable. Not so with this book. Someone needs to edit her books so there is more plot. If I ever buy another of her books, it will be after it is out in paperback. She's coasting on her previous success and I'm not wasting another cent on her future books.

i loved, loved, loved this book! i can't believe it is getting so many poor reviews. i think maybe the people who haven't liked it just simply don't understand it. i think you have to have a vivid imagination and really enjoy paranormal/fantasy writing to get the full benefit/impact of this series. it is not setup to be a simple HEA romance; it can be dark, scary, thrilling, and hilariously funny all in one. it's a saga along the lines of the harry potter stories....you have to read the entire series to find the ultimate answers. i loved KMM's highlander books and as you read the fever series you can see where these stories spring from the highlanders. sure, it's frustrating when the books simply end with so many unanswered questions, but for me that's half the fun. hope time flies til the next installment. keep up the GREAT work, KMM!

It seem like half of the book was catch up from the first two books in the series. The story line was all over the place and the ending was absolutely the worst in any book I have ever read. I don't think I will be buying any more of these. This series has become something other than romance and paranormal, it was sad and disturbing. Not something I want to remember as good fiction.

Okay... I pre-ordered this book, thinking this was going to be the best one yet.. or at least answer some of the questions from the previous books. None of the questions have been answered, and Mac is no closer to finding her sister's killer, then when she first finds out she has been murdered. I painfully waited for at least a little spark between Mac and one of the leading men. Despite the lack of anything romantic in this book, there was no real plot. What makes me sick is the rape of Mac by multiple men. What a depressing book. I can't believe it took the author a year to come up with this book!

I waited and waited for the newest installment in the MAC series - I even pre-ordered because the series was going so well. I'll never pre-order again in this series without some reviews for sure. I may never even read any more of this series. Without spoiling the last chapter, I'll only comment that it read like something like out of a men's story in a 'Hustler' magazine. Gross and without class...

I've only read 2 reviews that agreed with me. I found myself asking if there was any point to this story? Will there be a point? I read it to the very end and found...there is no point. As fans are we supposed to keep buying her books in the hope that we will eventually figure out what she's driving to? I would NOT have bought this third story if I had known it would go nowhere and will not buy another one that goes nowhere. At times I felt the author just rambled aimlessly to take up pages. I always enjoyed her other books so when the new series came out I bought it joyfully in anticipation of another good read. The only way to describe my let down would be...if a devoted Stephen King fan bought his newest book looking forward to another 'The Shining', turned on all the lights and hunkered down for a good scare only to open the book and find a book of poetry. When you find a new author, whose writing, characters, and stories you thoroughly enjoy and discover they used your loyalty, it leaves a sense of betrayal that cannot be repaired. KMM did that. She wrote wonderful books, sucked in a fan base and then used us to propel her real goal. Which in my mind is writing gibberish. I believe the author, her agent, editors, and publishing house owe the original KMM fans an apology. A HUGE one. If she truly wanted to write this story, she should have done it under a psuedonym. I guarantee sales would not increase upon each release.

I stumbled upon this series through the first book which was a free ebook on BN.com. I wasn't expecting much and I was very pleasantly surprised. I liked it so much, I purchased the rest of the series the next day. My only complaint is that, while I really have enjoyed the entire unfolding of the plot, the writer is missing the mark when it comes to exploring (and perhaps relieving) some of the building sexual tension between Mac and Barrons. I'd like to see a little less fighting action and a little more...action ;)

I was really enjoying this series until the end of this book. Up until then the characters, setting, plotlines, and suspense were dolled out very well. Then it all came crashing down into a trashy novel ending. Seriously - gang rape? It's like the author ran out of creativity,

I have been a big fan of Ms. Monning's since her first book. I have also been a fan of this new series up until the last part of this book. Given the sequence of what was going on, I guess it was bound to happen that Mac would be "raped" by the unseelie princes, but it was not necessary to write that she was attacked in a church. Shame on this.

I truly could not believe that by BOOK THREE, there was still no real resolution to any of the plot basics. The killer is still at large, the leads have not moved in any true romantic direction and the "bad guys" just continue to pillage and plunder. This book is simply and extension of book two with no new real twists or turns. I was so surprised as Ms Moning is a taleted writer but it appears this time she is content to produce a series with absolutely no contetnt. I love to read but I promise I will be buying no more books in this series. I think the author needs to realize that since she is tagged as a romance writer that she needs to focus on what that requires and the tag word here being ROMANCE. The degree of violence (and it is GRAPHIC) and lack of romance makes this book a complete and utter waste of time. If you look at series writers such as Christina Dodd and Cherry Adair you realize their appeal stems from storylines that continue from book to book but within the covers each story can and does stand on its own. Not so with this entire series. Come back from the dark side Ms Moning and write what you truly can do best!

I enjoyed the first 2 books of this series DarkFever and BloodFever, but this book was a total disappointment. I found the plot chaotic and depressing. The first two books had direction this one no direction with senseless scenes for example when Mac presents a birthday cake to Jericho Barnes who goes off the deep end.The main character Mac, who has grown in the first 2 books now regresses to a stupid teenager. The last scene is horrible depicting rape the reader is just left hanging for another year before the next installment is published. I doubt I even bother. I was an avid fan of KM and thought this series was going to be different in a good way, but as it progresses I have my doubts.

It leaves you feeling bad. Most of the book was the same old stuff without a lot of new info.
I liked the Highlander series and the other books in the Fae series, but this one was disappointing.

I loved the first book--the author has created a terrific 'other' world. However, the series is getting too dark and strange for me: in book 2 Mac gets tortured, in book 3 she's gang raped. Poor Mac is probably going to develop one of those Anita-Blake-like diseases that force fictional fantasy heroines to have sex all the time. Such a shame...

I have read all of KM's books and loved all of them, except Faefever. I'm really disappointed, the story has become to long and now it's to the point of being boring. I don't think I'll buy the next Fae book in this series.

I have read all of Karen Marie Moning's books. She is a good writer, but this book is so depressing. The last chapter was just horrible. I waited a year for this, and it just wasn't worth it. I think I will wait until the last one is written, skip the forth, as I hope the 5th will be uplifting. I wish I had skipped this one.

After waiting close to a year to read this book I was so disappointed. I have been a loyal fan of KM's and have loved all her stories. But this book was not only depressing, but left me feeling that Mac the lead character is no more aware of her purpose in the fight to keep the unseelie from invading the human realm than she did in the first book. Heck by the third book you would think she would have more insight to Jericho Barnes than she has. I just wonder how long it will be before the 4th installment of this series will be released if it is going to be another year I doubt I bother with it.

While I enjoy sexual tension as much as the next person, I'm not sure any of these books should be classified at Romance novels as there really isn't any romance in any of them. The first two books of the series are pretty good and this is more of the same. Unfortunatley, I think it may be a bit too much of a good thing. Tension only goes so far before it gets boring and that is what it was to me. The ending didn't feel like an ending either. I wish I would have taken the other reviews to heart and waited to get it from the library instead of buying this book. It's worth a read if you need to waste some time, but leaves too much still unanswered from the first two books.

Don't waste your money on this third installment. The first and second books in the series were very entertaining, but Faefever feels like a placeholder and a seriously rushed attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the series. There's no character development (some come and go for no reason and then you don't hear about them again!), most of the characters' decisions make NO sense (why would Barrons leave her alone and unprotected on All Hallow's Eve - a night that everyone knew would be dangerous, when all the barriers between worlds come crashing down - it makes absolutely no sense that he would do that!), and what little plot development there was could have fit into one or two chapters. This "novel" is just an excuse to make some money off loyal fans. I'm so disgusted that I won't be reading the fourth or fifth installments (if they even make it to press), and I won't be purchasing any more of this author's books.

The 'ick' factor overrides any points given for interesting plot twists, and obviously plans to go on much too long. I picked up all three books hoping this was a trilogy, otherwise might not have read past first installment. Very disappointing as first two are barely stand-alone books, more like installments, and story keeps getting ickier. This started out like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, minus likable friends or fun humor. Male leads are domineering and abusive, if you're into that. Can't imagine Moning's romance fans will follow her much farther down this unpleasant path. Like those TV shows that say "continued next week..." but after the gang bang rape ending, I don't know why many would want to tune in (or spend money) on the next installment. Shame really, because Moning writes such good male characters, but her need to abuse and debase this heroine is disturbing. All and all a depressing and very unsatisfactory read.

Note: All the marketing hype at the end - online games and plugging the blog - feels weird when we've just read the rape scene. Maybe marketing got ahead of storytelling on this one.

I (like many others) love Monings Highlander Series, and thought the Fever Series was going to be the best stuff she had ever wrote. I really enjoyed the first book because I thought the writing was good for the beginning of a series, the second book seemed like it was kind of leading up to something, but it came up a little short in the end, though not too bad. I bought the first two books and was ready for Faefever just KNOWING it was going to be the big turning point if the series, basically, thinking it was going to be the best. Well, I bought the book read it one time (skipping major sections in the end because I was really really not enjoying that last chapter), then I turned right around and sold it. I do not miss it in the least. Get it from the library. Don't buy it. It stinks.

I would normally have given this book a three star rating. I agree with others who have said that the plot of the series is not progressing and that there doesn¿t seem to be enough substantial story material to justify a five-book series. But typical to all other Moning books - and I¿ve read them all - there are enough interesting character sketches & scenes to make for a decent read. But, two words: gang rape. That Ms. Moning felt it necessary to subject the heroine to a four-men-at-once rape in order to make her ¿stronger¿ or to make her into ¿what she must become¿, is abhorrent. There is nothing daring in taking this story down such a dark path. It is, in fact, rather unimaginative. I regret buying and reading this book. In the end, it left me wishing I could flush it from my mind.
