SHADOWFEVER (Karen marie Moning)!!!!!!

Let me start off by saying... I LOVE THIS FREAKING SERIES!!!! My mother actually turned me on to this author a few years ago, and I have practically inhaled every book she's published ever since. After finishing Dreamfever last year, I've been (not so) patiently waiting for this book to be released, and damn near cried when it was pushed back to a january release.... but it's here!!!

Now I must confess, I pre-ordered this book... but after pre-viewing the 1st two chapters on her website, I ended up buying it on my kindle (LOL) on it's release date (1-16-11) because I was literally laying in bed wondering what came next. I finished it last night, and I have to say... well done Karen.

She came out swinging on the final(?) book. From the 1st chapter, you're getting answers and are drawn into the action that left you slack-jawed from the last installment. I'm not going to post any spoilers (even though they don't stop me from reading and enjoying a book) just in case you guys haven't read or are currently reading it. But if you have not read any of the fever series... you have no idea what you're missing... get into it! And while you're at it, check out her Highlander series as well... she has a knack for drawing you into her characters. Someone really needs to turn these books into a series/miniseries/movie ASAP!!!

And honestly, out of all the books she's written, and I own them ALL in hardback... IMO this one is absolutely the most beautifully packaged/designed. The ornate detail of the dustcover it great, as well as the double/see thru cover (clear printed dustcover reveals another cover on the hardcover) that play on each other.

That's pretty much it, just had to share my excitement for this book, and say that while there were alot of pieces I pretty much already guessed, she did a great job on this one... even though I was not really happy with the ending. BUT it did leave off with a semi-promise for potentially another installment... so yea me!!! Now, I'm going to re-read this few more times, and I suggest that if you guys like fiction/action/romance novels, head to your local bookstore, walmart, target or if you want a signed copy (like I purchased) go here and order the book.

So... read any good books lately?


  1. I have yet to read any of this author's books, but you're really tempting me. LOL I'm calling now to see if my local bookstore is carrying it. Thx for the rec!

  2. Tiffany, you have no idea what you're missing! KMM is an amazing writer. Her characters are so well developed and intriguing that it is at times hard to remember it's all just a book. You're going to WISH there was a Barrons in real life :-)
