Bloodfever (Fever #2)


I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who'd get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe -- seers, people, who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.

When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I've learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it...

MacKayla Lane's ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland's shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh -- a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V'lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them...

Wow another one done in just a day. This series is so damn addictive and I love each second of it!

Now I’ll try not to get overexcited because I’ll probably end up scaring y’all. I seriously consider this series a masterpiece. I respect Karen Marie Moning so much. She managed to nail it with these amazing characters and intriguing plot. It gets better and better.

I was having a feeling that Mac will transform into something cool and I was right. I like her even more in Bloodfever, she’s starting to get mature, her way of thinking changed and she learned the tough lesson that she must stand out for herself. I respect the fact that she’s not a damsel in distress, always waiting for the hero to save her, all the drama focusing on her not being able to stay out of trouble and so on. Well Mac has a talent to get into trouble but the good part is that this isn’t caused by her own idiocy. Dublin just sucks this way. In the book… I mean no offence or anything… I’ve got lots of homies in Dublin. Barrons included lol.

That reminds me… remember when I trashed the Dublin police in my last review for Darkfever? Well now they found the damned street. Too bad it’s one book too late… police jokes anyone? Check this:

A local policeman had just finished his shift one cold November evening and was at home with his wife.
"You just won't believe what happened this evening , in all my years on the force I've never seen anything like it."
"Oh yes dear, what happened ?"
"I came across two guys down by the canal, one of them was drinking battery acid and the other was eating fireworks."
"Drinking battery acid and eating fireworks!! What did you do with them ?"
"Oh that was easy, I charged one and let the other off."

Funny stuff… But back to our wonderful book.

There were many scenes I loved in here, amongst them are all the moments of jealousy Barrons had and, of course, the “punching” that got us the long awaited hot scene between Mac and Barrons. I expected nothing less for a first kiss. The one in the first book, if it actually wasn’t Mac hallucinating, didn’t count for me. I like my heroes/heroines totally awake when this happens.

V’lane was priceless in this book. He’s just a psycho alien going around stalking poor girls to their naked deaths. I still don’t like him and I doubt I ever will. I’m sure some people would dream of a hookup between him and Mac but I’m telling you there’s noooo way this deluded creature could be able of loving something (human at least). Barrons will end up with Mac. Period!

Now the question comes, is Bloodfever better than Darkfever? I may say yes for some aspects, like Mac growing up into a better person, more info on Barrons, better action, awesome villains, and no because Darkfever will always be the dark introduction that will always haunt me till the end. Now I got used to the whole creepy environment that I don’t get surprised so easily. This isn’t bad, it’s a totally normal thing but it influenced the way I perceive the books from now on. Some series have it like that (the good ones mostly), the first book is amazing and after that they’re great. But keep in mind this doesn’t mean that the rest of them suck. They just don’t shock me as much as the first one does.

Overall an amazing series, I’m already half through the third book so I guess until Monday I’ll be done with all five of them. Oh I love these guilty pleasures…

Top 5 quotes

#5 “From who?”
“From whom, I believe is the correct phrasing.”
“All right, from-the-fuck-whom, Ms. Lane?”

#4 “He doesn’t beat me,” I said irritably. “I’d kill him if he did.”
“She would. She has a temper. Stubborn, too. But we’re working on that, aren’t we, Ms. Lane?”

#3 “Why have you chosen to spare me?”
“I want us to be…what is your word? Friends.”
“Psychotic rapists don’t have friends.”
“I was unaware you were a psychotic rapist or I would not have offered.”
“Ha.” I’d set myself up for that one.

#2 I didn’t say, You are such a stuffy asshole. And he didn’t say, If you ever burn one of my quarter-of-a-million dollar rugs again I’ll take it out of your hide, and I didn’t say, Oh, honey, wouldn’t you like to? And he didn’t say Grow up, Ms. Lane, I don’t take little girls to my bed, and I didn’t say I wouldn’t go there if it was the only safe place from the Lord Master in all of Dublin.

#1 “One day you may kiss a man you can’t breathe without, and find breath is of little consequence.”

 
Final Score: *****
