Series: Fever, Book 2
Bloodfever is the second installment of the Fever series. I have not included any spoilers but there might be a few from the first installment, Darkfever.
The Lord Master is freeing the darkest enemies imaginable. He is letting them roam free among humanity. MacKayla can see these creatures and with Jericho Barrons help they must discover how to close the portal. Since the first installment of the Fever series, MacKayla has grown and matured a lot. She is still coping with the death of her sister but that only fuels her passion for stopping the Lord Master. We still see a glimpse of the old MacKayla with her dreams of having a normal life with lots of pretty rainbows but now she has some harsher edges which helps her in the end.
Jericho and MacKayla are still hunting for Fae artifacts. She has started to get use to Jericho’s way of working but at times she still is very frustrated. The pull between the two of them is very palpable and we are always on the edge wondering if they will take the next step with each other. MacKayla comes upon others that are like her and now she sees that she has other options then Jericho. Seeds of doubt are placed in her mind from both sides leaving her conflicted. Should she continue her allegiance to Jericho or set out on a new path to learn more of what powers she possesses.
Another blow against MacKayla, she has learned that her sister’s ex-boyfriend and murderer, Malluce, is still alive (or as alive as one could be in his state). He is out for revenge and he is not going to hold back. And if that isn’t enough, V’lane the Fae prince is still coming to her in all is sexual glory.
Once again Moning has created a fast-paced gripping read. The reader is wrapped up in MacKayla’s life and near death and when Bloodfever ends our fingers tingle to pick up the next installment, Faefever, with feverish anticipation.
