Feverborn (Fever #8)

Review From User :

Last year we had Burned, and to many it was quite a disappointment. Too much Mac, too little Dani, wtf happened with Dani, wtf happened to the excitement and action that were signature of Fever
It looks like Feverborn is here to redeem it.
When the Hoar Frost King stole music, more specifically, musical frequency, on Earth, he left behind black holes that pose a grave threat to the existence of the world, including that of the Nine. With universal catastrophe at hand, immortals and humans alike temporarily join a tenuous bond to achieve a common cause: find the Song of Making.
In tandem with saving the world, Ryodan, Mac, and Dancer have one other priority: getting Dani back. But will they succeed
POV: Feverborn was written from five points of view: Mac, Jada, Christian, Lor, and the occasional check-ins from the thing called Papa Roach. Perhaps it is my bias, but the chapters told by Mac were boring and tedious -- many of her musings detracted from the story's main attention. I get it, things aren't the same since you came to Dublin. Surprise surprise. Move on please. The saving grace to this was that Jada didn't have to sacrifice her page time for Mac. We saw nearly as much from her side of the story, and it broke my heart, the things she revealed about her time in Faery.
The characters in this book have definitely evolved in my eyes, especially Ryodan, Jada, and Dancer. Enigmatic, powerful, an asshat on the outside, But in truth, Ryodan is a man who cares about the world he lives in, the first to angle for the Nine's survival in the face of the black holes, and the man behind the alliances and the world saving plans. And when it comes to Jada/Dani, I devolve into a sobbing fangirling mess. I LOVE this man. Even more so now. The extent of his love for Dani is revealed, and this new tension-filled terrain he and Jada are exploring both crackles with electricity-- can I say tattooing sessions -- and tinges with pain.
Jada came back the new version of Dani, but all is not what she appears to be. Jada is a feared and respected leader, and an integral part in this story's progression. She wasn't marginalized so don't worry. While dealing with outside matters, Jada continues to deals with the conflict blooming at an alarming rate inside her. In the silvers it was easy to pretend she didn't have emotions. Yet being back with the living proves the opposite, and I love seeing the glimpses of the old Dani in her, in her mind and in her arguments with Ryodan and Dancer. Dani/Jada really breaks my heart in this one. You truly never deserved any of it, Dani. It is way past time you find your own happiness. I am rooting for you.
Dancer! This brainiac kid warms my heart. Out of everybody, he seems to be the only person to accept Jada as she is, and acting as if she is still his oldest and dearest friend in the world. Dancer has formed a crew of his own, and I would love to see where they take the story. Perhaps they were the ones behind WeCare I don't know. Dancer is no longer acting like a kid now that Dani is a woman. From the way he is pitted against Ryodan, it looks like a love triangle is there in the making. No problem. My man is coming out on top when that happens.
Barrons took a backseat. I love him still, but as KMM promised, for me at least, Ryodan has begun to eclipse him.
Daegus: juicy plot twists coming!

Feverborn was action packed with a good dose of emotional turmoil. I loved it and hope you will too. Now let the wait for Feversong commence!

Before Reading:
Okay KMM. After the train wreck that was Burned, I think it's time to to REALLY move on from Mac and let Dani tell her story. Mac's story has been told. Her problems should have been solved by now if she were truly the badass warrior the 5 original Fever books painted her to be. Her relationship with Barrons does not need anymore forced tension, because we all know they ain't gonna break from some childish misunderstanding.

Dani and Ryodan are the ones with actual stories to tell. Let them have their books please.

In Karen Marie Moning’s latest installment of the epic #1 New York Times bestselling Fever series, the stakes have never been higher and the chemistry has never been hotter. Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, FEVERBORN is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness and the redemptive power of love.

When the immortal race of the Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making – a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of all life itself – can save the planet.

But those who seek the mythic Song – Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada – must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: The Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among – and within – themselves.

Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And in those war-torn streets, Mac will come face to face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.
