Our thoughts...

“I think I’m going to love you the rest of my life.”

*Mild Spoilers ahead* Continue with caution.

We continue with the eighth installment of the Fever series. Mac is still invisible, Daegus is still alive, Christian has recovered, and Jada is still Jada, for a bit. There was a lot of jumping around in character POV’s in this one, more so then the others. I didn’t feel a lot got resolved in terms of the previous installment Burned. It was more of another setup to the story, as we still have two more novels in the works before our Fever world comes to an end. I don’t know about you, but I literally could read the characters in the Fever story for the rest of my life. It’s one of those series that takes you from point A to Z and then can turn right back around again and start a whole other segment.

Mac’s developments are slow building. She still has the book, however, it has been quiet since she went invisible. Mac becomes injured, and she thinks she requires more Unseelie flesh, so she eats it, and she becomes visible again. She is still struggling to be in control of herself, and the book. On a side note she is also trying to mend her relationship with Jada/Dani. I really liked the process of the two of them coming together in the end. It was a huge relief for me that there friendship mended. They love each other so much.
Barron’s is (the love of every girls’ fantasy). We get more emotion out of him in this book then we ever have before. And the only emotion he has is for his pink Barbie girl Mac. There is no way he would ever turn his back on her. Ever. “Boundaries were necessary for a successful relationship. Most relationships aborted in the boundary-defining stage. Not because people demanded what they needed. But because they didn’t, then got resentful about it.” –Mac   These two are so passionate it’s pretty explosive as always.

Jada/Dani is struggling to fit in once again. We get to see into her thoughts, and the struggles she is dealing with being lost in the silvers for five years. I felt so sad reading her parts of the book. She really has endured so much in her lifetime. The most important person in her life is Ryodan. Yes he has a lot on his plate trying to keep one step ahead of everyone. There are things Ryodan is doing, and showing us that is not his normal. We get to see just how deep he will go with Jada. She wanted what Mac and Barron’s have so badly in her younger self, she might very well get more where Ryo is involved. He loves her deeply. He even tells her at one point. He’s trying to except she is no longer the girl he saw before, and to do that he has to open himself up to her completely. He has to get her to trust him, and for Ryo that is a huge undertaking. Their relationship will be explosive when it comes to a head. And I am ready for that ride. God am I ready.
“No need to go hunting dragons when the one right next to you keeps yanking your chain. And you had so very many chains to yank back then.” – Ryo to Jada

Christian is still a good guy, well as good as one can get being an Unseelie prince. He learns a few things and makes a vow with three very important people in return for knowledge of something he wants desperately. He also helps when needed. Not much else about him in the book though. He is more of a sideline character at this point. I believe he will be needed more frequently in the future, however.

Lor is absolutely the funniest of the nine or should I say ten *ahem*. He is still battling it out with Jo where it’s needed. I found his chapter to be exactly what I needed at the time. A huge laugh. I love him, and can’t wait to see his future.
In all this book was A+ as always Moning seems to keep us addicted to the Fever world, and that’s why we worship the ground she walks on.

5 I will always love you stars.
