Darkfever (Fever Series, Book 1)

Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning For more reviews, see: Fantasy is More Fun I heard all sorts of good things about this series long before I started it, and I'm at no loss as to why. While this book suffers from the first-book syndrome (slow starter to develop characters and world), it promises to develop into a really great series. Mac is my favorite kind of heroine - seemingly hopelessly flawed and confused, yet deep down strong, brave, and good. I love that this book is told exclusively from her point of view, too. Her confusion keeps you guessing the entire time; you're as in the dark as she is. Jericho Barrons is a wonderful character as well. He's so mysterious and, at least through Mac's eyes, you really don't know what to think about him. The same is true for V'lane - the Death by Sex Fae (I love the names she gives to the Fae, BTW). It's torture trying to figure out who to trust, and more importantly, who not to trust. Overall really great and can't wait for the next one. I'm not sure if my review would perhaps be 5 stars if I hadn't made the mistake of reading the first several chapters on audio book. I can't stress how much the horrible narration threatened to ruin an otherwise really good book. Barrons - who I had heard about long before I started the book - seemed like a weak old man because of the narrators voice for him. I cannot stress this point enough - if you're going to read this book, do not buy the audio version. Joyce Bean's accents are just atrocious.
