Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning
Genre: Adult Fantasy
Series: Fever Series
He has stolen her past, but Mackayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought - and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.
As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V'lane vie for her body and soul, as she rallies the sidhe-seers to fight an impossible battle and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac's greatest enemy delivers a final challenge...
It's an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth - about herself and about the world she thought she knew.

I have been waiting for a year for this book to come out...and I can tell you I'm almost depressed. Not because the book was bad - not in the slightest - because in classic "Fever Series" methods, Karen Marie Moning left the characters and the story at a very high point. Each of the books in this series do not actually end, they just stop. Right.In.The.Middle.Of.The.Freakin.Story!!!!!! If it wasn't so good, it would be infuriating!
There were very few questions answered, and many more questions raised. Actually, these books remind me of the show Lost in that way. Mac becomes a much more aggressive, darker Mac - instead of wishing her life were back to normal she is finally embracing who she is and what she does and wants to kick of Fae-butt! She still thinks about the past, but she no longer seems to dwell on it like she was.
This book took her relationship with Jericho Barrons to a new level. Not only does he release her from her Pry-ia status and helps her to find herself again, but though they both fight it, it seems to have opened some additional doors to their relationship. I think Jericho is showing more emotion towards Mackayla, although it seems like he's fighting what he's feeling - I think it's there right under the surface. He cares much more than he wants to. I think his mean comments and biting words are evidence of that. He doesn't like what she's making him feel. Seriously, with all the tension, heat and passion the two are throwing at each other, V'lane doesn't stand a chance.
So...I'm not really telling you much, am I? This series is awesome! It contains Faerie of the deep and evil kind. Even the "good," or Seelie fae are a bit worrisome in this book. Mackayla is a sidhe-seer, a person (woman) who can see through Faerie glamor. She also has an entire host of other abilities that she's just getting to know, making her more curious to Jericho and others around her. She's fighting to get these Fae off her planet, she's fighting to avenge her sister's death, she's fighting to save the planet. If you are a paranormal/fantasy junky (as I am) you would do good to start at the beginning of this series (Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, Dreamfever). There is one more (thank God it's only ONE) book in the series (Shadowfever), and I simply cannot wait!
