Review for Faefever by Karen Marie Moning

Faefever by Karen Marie Moning
Oh Lord, have mercy on my soul! Karen Marie Moning's newest series is a gift of epic proportions to paranormal romance fans.  Two of Moning's Highlander series are among my favorite time-travel romances...The Highlander's Touch and Kiss of the Highlander...yum!  The new Fever series is definitely a departure from her time-travel books, and fans expecting more of the same may be disappointed. (By the way, Faefever is the third installment of this series; Darkfever is number 1, and Bloodfever is number 2, and yes, you must read them in cheating!) However, I implore you to give these a chance.  They are tremendous.  Moning's talent as a writer has truly flourished over the years, and this newest series is a testament to that.  This first-person narrative is brimming with Irish lore, mysterious, sexy characters, and a dark, sensual tone that is addictive.  I LOVED this book and cannot wait for the next one. Grade: A+
With the utmost sincerity, Penelope
