    Karen!! Please don’t make us wait upwards of a year again! I don’t know how you as the author can stand not to tell us this story faster! I love it all…but faster, faster, faster!! I’m groveling at your feet, begging you to stop this torment!

    Yes it’s taking Mac time to evolve, if it didn’t I would wonder how complete and sincere her change is. Very few things in life cause an immediate about face that lasts.

    I do find it annoying that we can’t get into JZB’s head the way we could the Highlanders. However, actions speak louder than words and Barron’s actions tell me all I need to know about his feelings for Mac. I can’t wait to find out the nitty gritty on him, I don’t care what kind of monster he’s been in the past!

    I’m wondering at this point about V’lane…is he okay? Is his attitude really changing about humans? Is his kindness and fascination with Mac only about the power she’s coming into and who she will be? Or does he have real feelings for her?

    Christian seems to be on a major path to trial by fire that will toughen him up getting him ready to be a major player in a future series!

    To the author Karen – really what was the point ?? I have followed your series from the start and really for those dedicated to the storyline, and have hope for Mac and your story for her – you have thoroughly dissapointed us. This book was written for anyone needing a brush up on what has happened in the last 3 books – this book was NOT for those looking for substanance of any kind when it comes to the fever series. I found myself scanning over many / most of the pages of this book due to shear boredom in the fact that it simply reviewed the past 3 books story lines. Nothing progresses AT ALL in this book, story or for any of the characters.

    This book was simply published to string readers along and make more $$$.

    Don’t buy it – Borrow it from the Library – i did and save your $$$ for something worthy of purchase.

    I hate to purchase a book and it never gets to the end. This series I gave up on after the third book. While the characters are appealing, there are to many issues and not enough information about the big picture. I think this book could have been finished a long time ago. I’ll stick to the highlanders.

    Dreamfever is the 4th of a 5 fantasy book series. The reader follows MacKayla Lane (Mac – the heroine)thru a journey of self discovery & growth which takes place during the ultimate fight between good and evil. This is not a stand alone book and should not be purchased as such. If you are interested in the synopsis of Dreamfever, make sure you read the first 3 books first. Also, beware that the publisher does not release the next and last installment for another year. This can be very frustrating for the reader, each book ends with a cliffhanger and more questions seem to arise than are answered.

    Dreamfever seems more like a bridge to another series of books and a “quick we need to fill gaps in the characters personality” than an actual installment of quality. Karen Moning is an outstanding writer but we do not see her gift here. Unfortunately, at this point, the series is screaming “sold out for the bucks!”.

    First off, I love Karen Marie Moning’s books for the most part. All except the last two. I loved all of her earlier books because they were new, well-paced, humorous, mystical, romantic and just plain fantastic. When I started reading the Fever series I was surprised at her turn to the dark side of the Fae, but I trustingly went along for the ride.

    Books one and two were new for me (I rarely read dark-themed books) but once I got used to that I thought they were pretty good. In the last two books however, things seem to have gotten very repetitive. Mac has gone from perfectly matched, polished, beautiful, and blonde in pink and rainbows to lean, jagged,scruffy, rough and now Mac in black…got it already, can we move on now? There are more monsters in the Unseelie world than will ever be known, and they all keep getting more and more horrific. Again, got it…over and over and over again. Can we move on here also?

    She still hasn’t gotten answers regarding Barrons, V’lane, the Sinsar Dubh, her own place as a player on the board etc. Nothing really seems to have progressed at all in the last two books. She still in the same dilemma, going in the same direction, dealing with the same major issues and still in the same dark as usual. The author just keeps changing the physical locations and the appearances of the monsters. The story just doesn’t seem to be developing and growing anymore. Enough already. I just want to get to the end.

    I think this story would have been way better if it had been kept to 3 books at most. I will be far more cautious about investing in future series by Ms Moning. Sadly, this one is becoming very long, disappointing and expensive.

    I have read hundreds of books and rarely do I reread unless they are extremely enjoyable. Karen Marie Moning has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I started with the Fever series and then went back and read all of the highlanders which were amazing. In that series I loved Hawk, Grimm, Circenn, Dageus, Drustan and Cian but Adam Black was a cut above. In the fever series Mac is interesting and her adventures exciting. The writing is superb and the cliffhangers are immense. Dreamfever left me gasping for more. Sheer cruelty to make fans wait a year for the final book to find out what happens. I hope the amazing characters created in this series get a life of their own in novels yet to come. I must say there’s nothing I like better than to seriously crush on the male leads in novels. Some of my biggest crushes are Mr. Darcy, Jamie Fraser, Jean-Claude, Eric Northman and Adam Black. But I must say Jericho Barrons makes my heart pound…I have reread Dreamfever countless times and keep going back for another peek. Give this series a try, you won’t be sorry.

    This is a fantastic page-turner. I’m not a Moning fan. I got this book only because the first book in the series was a Kindle freebie for a while. I thought, whatever, for free, might as well look at it. After staying up all night reading the first book, I immediately bought the next and the next and the next. This is NOT a romance series! Many of the negative reviews are from people who wanted a romance. This is more of an action/adventure/suspense series and I love it. It is true that there are some repetitive parts and a little too much detail in certain background areas about the heroine’s previous existence as a pink-loving girlie girl, but you can skim over those and get to the meat. And there’s plenty of great stuff!! LOVE it!!

    Thank goodness for Amazon. I live in SE Asia, and none of the local chains had ordered the recent installment for their shelves. To occupy myself while I waited for Dreamfever to arrive, I reread the first three books in the series so all the fine details would be fresh in my mind. I have to say I am in awe of Karen’s attention to detail. She’s a master at bringing it all together (and this includes tying in characters from her Highlander Series) I can really appreciate how she’s fleshed out every character. She makes you feel the atmosphere to go along with the story she’s created. The evolution of Mac’s character and the many facets of her personality are perfectly believable. Whereas some people might not like the way the relationship development occured between her and JB, I think it was fantastic. Now that I’ve read Dreamfever, I can’t imagine it coming about any other way. Karen released some of the sexual tension (and boy did she ever) without giving it to us too soon.. She’s prolonging it like a master and I love her for it.

    I was transported and riveted by Mac’s world the entire time I was reading Dreamfever. I didn’t want to end, but end it did.. and on such an explosive OhNoWhatTheHellJustHappened note! Karen Moning has only further whet my appetite for the next installment ~ it can’t come soon enough..

    I’m already mourning the ending of the series… can’t it go on and on?

    When I first read Darkfever I was stunned at how much it differed from KMM’s Highlander series. It wasn’t a single volume romance. It was in first person. WTH happened? My initial shock preceded my appreciation of the story. I reread it. I loved it. By the second book we see a dynamic change in Mac as a character. She goes from being a barbie, too stupid to live almost, to being strong. To being extremely interesting. To being a character that women could look up to.

    Dreamfever picks up from where Faefever leaves off. Mac is at the worst place in her life one could be. When she is able to get back into the fight, she really does. Gone is the barbie doll of the past for good, now she is a living weapon seeking revenge.

    So what if her story takes 5 books rather than 1. Would you rather have a huge story condensed into one book and lose half the dynamics of the character changes? Or would you rather have the complete and total story?

    Questions are being answered, leaving just enough left over (plus a few new ones) to be answered in the final book. No the books are not Harry Potter, nor do they try to be. Karen Marie Moning is a brilliant woman with incredible talent for story telling. Dreamfever is probably the best in the series, with each book getting better than the last. I am not going to give away plot details in this review as I feel it takes away from the reading experience. But let it be said that the story will grip you, and when you reach the final page you will be ready for more!

    Okay, I love, love, love any work by Karen Marie Moning. I think she has a gift for creating enthralling, sexy page turners and I’m completely addicted to the Fever series. I was desperate for each and every novel’s release and I devoured DreamFever in a little over 6 hours… BUT, the unanswered questions and cliff hangers are getting – nope, scratch that, ARE – tiresome. I felt the same way after Faefever and it’s only been amplified by the unsatisfactory ending of Dreamfever. I realized that, once again, questions that were initiated in Book 1 are still NOT resolved in Book 4 and [naturally] we get some NEW questions. If I were a man, I’d say Karen is pretty adept at giving me an extreme case of literary blue balls. I felt sort of betrayed and tired at the end of DreamFever – I’m dying to know the official status of Jericho and Mac’s relationship [and I agree with another poster - I don't care what he did or what kind of monster he is - I want them to wind up together soo badly - with maybe 1 little detour in V'Lane's bed before their HEA, lol]. I’m tired of books where it ends with Mac in a horrid situation and you don’t know who’s going to rescue her – hopefully herself for once. All that aside, though, the book is a fun, quick read and leaves you parched for more. Mac is developing into an even better kick a$$ character although I wonder if she strays a little too far to the dark side… there were some virtues to pink Mac I think. Much to the publisher’s delight, I’ll definitely buy the next book, but I wish I’d never laid eyes on this series until all 5 cursed books were on the shelves. I’m also a shade dubious about Karen cramming and resolving everything neatly in this 5th book since she didn’t do it in 4. So instead of 5 stars, I’m gonna have to subtract 1 because my immediate reaction after finishing this novel was utter disappointment for all the reasons noted above. I hope to God they don’t make us wait another year for ShadowFever. Give me a short story or something in the interim, PLEASE!!

    I have my usual gripes with this book, that I’ve had with the whole series, that have nothing to do with the story itself – I read it too fast and now I have to wait so long for the next (and FINAL!!) installment.

    Other than that, this book was fantastic! The best yet, IMO. It had all the usual suspense, plot twists and great dialouge KMM is famous for, and we finally got some answers.

    *****SPOILERS*****

    I am a huge Barrons fan and my man really came through in this book. We learned so much about him; his past and his motivations for doing what he does and being the way he is. We also saw a much softer side to him in this installment.

    The supporting characters were more fleshed out in this book and are really coming into their own (Dani, Christian, Ryodan…) Hopefully there will be some spin offs, because after dragging Mac’s story over 5 books, I don’t think KMM can wrap up everything for everyone in the final book. It would seem to rushed.

    I am looking forward to re-reading this book again, since I am sure I missed some crucial details in the wee hours of the morning.

    Thanks KMM for another fantasic read!!

    I’ll start off by saying that I love this series. Fantastic story, characters, details etc. Will be something I read over and over again. The Fever world Karen Marie Moning has created is amazing and unlike anything I have read before. However, I wish I had not read them yet. I Hate being left hanging over and over again. If there was a shorter time between books it would be one thing, but I doubt there is a chance of Shadowfever being released until next year. I will never buy another Moning series until they are all released and then I am sure I will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed these but without the frustration. So bottom line…read them since they are fantastic but wait until they are all released if you have not already started.

    This book was so exciting, I couldn’t put it down. But the cliffhangers suck. To wait a year to find out what happens is not something that I expected. Had I known, I never would have started the series. I will read 50-100 more books before the next in this series, then will be annoyed that I have forgotten details. While I really like this series a lot, I do NOT like being stuck on a cliffhanger. I feel a bit cheated, like I only got half a book.

    Being slightly obsessed with the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, I was so excited and anxious to read this book. I’m glad that all my waiting and excitement were, overall, not in vain.

    Those who have read this series so far will know that it has quite a tangle of plots and storylines that play out slowly as each book progresses. All the plotlines that have been important since the first book, namely the war between the Seelie and Unseelie fairies, the threat and realization of the walls between Earth and Fairie coming down and the hunt for the Dark Book that could end this war are still happening here. As well, heroine/narrator Mackayla, the only one with the ability to detect the Dark Book, is recovering from an attack to her soul by three Dark Princes which happened at the end of the last book.

    I don’t want to describe the plot of this book anymore since I think it would spoil the story. I’ll only say that all those things and then some are going on in this fourth instalment of the Fever series. Dreamfever is as action packed, riveting and overstuffed as its predecessors.

    There are so many good things about this book. It’s got an intriguing, dark and genuinely creepy backdrop in the falling city of Dublin with the eerie breeds of fairies, both dark and light, always lurking and becoming deadlier and a lot scarier. Not only is the world vivid, so is the world building. More and more layers of the fairy realms are unveiled and it’s utterly fascinating. The suspenseful hunt for the Dark Book sees Mac and her cohorts in constant action and mixed throughout all of this is a humorous narrative with a spunky heroine.

    It’s all great stuff that kept me flipping the pages, enthralled, compelled, on the edge of my seat. Yippee!

    Here comes the BUT portion of my review. BUT…goodness! this has to be one of the most frustrating series I’ve ever read! Why? Well, I think I can split my frustration into two basic parts.

    The first part is the plot. Basically it plods along as Mac jumps from disaster to disaster and interacts with various characters as they become relevant to each scene. There are a lot of characters and disasters and some of them are a lot more interesting than others making for a slightly uneven reading experience. After some of these disasters play out, the book ends shockingly and suddenly. Again. It’s incredibly frustrating even if I expected it based on the other three books. It better get resolved nice and neatly in the next book because I’m not sure I can take anymore.

    The second part of my frustration is with the characterization of the leads. Mac, even after all she’s been through, is still too feisty and occasionally petty and silly. Often, she’ll begin to become the kind of serious and considerate heroine I can root for, and then she’ll revert back. Annoying! Her main love interest, Jericho Barrons, even after four books, remains a mysterious, cold, controlling, alpha jerk to readers. A few very small details of his past are revealed and they don’t cast him in a very heroic light, to my eyes. Though I am intrigued by him and his interactions with Mac make me giggle, I’m still not sure if I feel sympathy for him. I’m not really even sure how I’m supposed to feel about him because I don’t feel I know enough about him, there’s just vague hints and speculation. And yet, I still want them to end up together. Still! I can’t help it, I guess.

    Anyhoo, I realize that this `review’ comes across as more of a jumbled up collection of my thoughts about this book and series. I really do like both. A lot. However, according to the Author’s Note, the next book (which cannot come soon enough!) is Mac’s last and that’s good for me. Much as I’ve enjoyed her tale, I feel that it’s time for her journey to end. I’m hoping for a great finale!

    First let me say I got the audio version of this book and both readers rocked! I’d like to call the male reader up once a week for a “fix”, he has the best male reader voice I’ve heard in a long time. I did have a problem with the discs though, every single one except the first would take forever to load when I put it in my car cd player, and several of them had to be ejected and re-loaded 4 or 5 times before they would play. Frustrating as heck when you are driving on the highway at 65 mph and have to keep ejecting the cd. I do not have this problem with other audio books, so it must be this brand.

    As for the story. I read a lot of series books and most do not leave you with a cliff hanger. They might leave a storyline unfinished, but if they leave you that tied up in the plot, the next book is usually out a lot sooner than 12 months. I am not convinced this has anything to do with anything but money for the publisher. They want time to sell lots of hard covers, then go to paperback. Then you get the new book. Books 1 & 2 didn’t end like 3 & 4, so it is possible to “pull a Harry Potter” and “end” on a positive note each time. After all, we are going to keep reading so cut us a little slack on the cliff hanger stuff. Karen herself has said the entire series is already all planned out, so give us book 5 sooner please!

    I did enjoy the book, but I wish I had waited until all 5 books were out before I started the series.
