After leaving her fans on the edge of our seats with Faefever
, Karen Marie Moning delivers a stunning follow-up in Dreamfever
continues the saga of MacKayla Lane, a "sidhe-seer" who, unlike normal humans, can see the "fae": immortal creatures of myth and lore that are anxious to regain their place in our world.
Caught by her own naiveté about her true heritage, Dreamfever finds Mac almost completely transitioned from her "southern belle" persona of the previous books into a powerful, intense, and ruthless defender of humankind. From the first, Moning has deftly moved Mac through a range of emotions, shaking her up at every chance, forcing her to mature in a matter of months into a woman who is not only ready to fight to the death to save those she loves, but has the tools to do so.
Moning has done a fabulous job of building anticipation and keeping us waiting breathlessly for the next installment in her Fever series. Each book is a stand-alone story, but also moves the overall story arc along, and Dreamfever is the best yet. Full of action, it answers some questions and opens the door to more while leaving us, as usual, desperately craving the next book in the series.
