Throwback Thursday #35: Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning

Throwback Thursday is a bookish meme hosted every two weeks by me and Christina @ Booksane where we feature books that we've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.
Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!

Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning
Fever #5
Read from November 04 to December 22, 2011

“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.” — MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. — Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh -- a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.

Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

A lot of questions get answered in this book. Not all of them, of course, because what would this series be without all the mystery?

He pulls me around and kisses me. "You're Mac," he says. "And I'm Jericho. And nothing else matters. Never will. You exist in a place that is beyond all rules for me. Do you understand that?" I do.
Jericho Barrons just told me he loves me.

Question of this week:

Most intimidating book you've read?

I'm actually still amazed that I read this book. It was a buddy read on Kindle and it took us 3 months because we only read about 5 chapters a week. But damn, it was amazing! The length of this book is what intimidated me the most when I first started. Longest book I have ever read!

Next question (November 6): 

Do you know books with funny titles?

  1. OMG. How I loved the fever series. That series was so good. I'm so impatiently waiting for Burned to see what happens next in that world. Great pick. My mother read Game of Thrones and loved it, it got my mother into reading books.
