I Caught the Fever! - Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Ok. I was lured to this book. I read the review of a fellow book blogger, Loves to Read for Fun and was intantly hooked. I'm going to skip the storyline synopsis - because while the storyline was fresh and unique, that's not what had me hooked.



Moning has a writing style that sucks you into the world of MacKayla Lane, a 22-year old Georgia bell. Huh? Georgia Bell? I'm sure you're asking -- what the heck does this have to do with Fae and Druid & such? Well that's my point. The world of MacKayla Lane is so masterfully written - it's believable. The story is first-person narrative, from MacKayla's point of view. She's telling the story of her life in the past tense. Now typically that style would annoy me, but MacKayla's persona is so well written, I didn't even mind.

In Darkfever, you'll meet MacKayla Lane. You'll learn of the death of her sister Alina.  You'll be introduced to Jericho Barrons (oooooh-La-La)..I could go on --but I won't.  I just can't talk about the synopsis without throwing in spoilers.

Another thing about Moning -- she's the queen of cliffhangers!! Even if you can't stand cliffhangers -- you've gotta pick up this serives. OMG I can't -- no I won't go into more detail. You'll have to experience it for yourself. I mean, I knew what I was getting into by reading the series - but I was still surprised when I reached the end of the book. Don't get me wrong, it's a "good" surprise though. Because at that point, simply I reached over and picked up Bloodfever.  With the knowledge of a cliffhanger -- I had to have the next one handy. :)

Go on -- get your read on for the Fever series -- you won't regret it!

REVIEW: First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost

Synopsis from back Cover:



The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows - her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield - and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family's dark past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness - and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who craves a taste of her.


He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human - even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the demon nightmare together...


Because once the first drop of crimson falls, they will both be lost.
If you haven't read any of Night Huntress Novel's you may not understand the "Cat" and "Bones" references noted below.  It's ok, but I recommend that you pick one up.. you won't be sorry :)

Like all Cat and Bones lovers, I anxiously awaited Jeaniene Frost's spin-off from the Night Huntress Series - First Drop of Crimson.  My brain was whirling with thoughts of how she could pick up the storyline of Denise MacGregor and join it with Spade.  So let me start of by saying -- whatever you know of the Cat and Bones series -- fah-getta-boutit!! (Sorry, my NY roots are showing.)  While the results aren't what I expected, I really enjoyed it - for the most part. 

Not trying to compare, but Denise is NOT Cat -- the vulnerability her character displayed in the beginning was almost annoying and a little unbalanced when paired with Spade.  But as the storyline progressed, you learned more about who she is and what shaped her vulnerability - in essence -- it made sense.  After a few chapters, she grows on you and you find yourself liking her afterall.

Spade, hmmm not so much.  Don't get me wrong.  Frost did an EXCELLENT job with developing Spade's character.  He's the typical handsome, strong, funny, supa-sexy vamp with a kick-*ss attitude not equal to, but close to Bones.  Bottomline, he's believable.

FDOC follows along the lines of a more traditional paranormal romance novel.  Unlike the Night Huntress series it's written in third person, which gives the reader the opportunity to get inside Denise's head as well as Spade's and for this storyline, and that technique works.  The good news is Cat and Bones make an appearance, along with Ian and Mencheres.  So we can all get a quick fix on our favorite vamp couple.

Cover Comment:  The guy on the book cover reminds me of LeStat from the movie of Queen of the Dammed.

Frost's next book will be dedicated to Mencheres in Eternal Kiss of Darkness which will be released this July.  If she follows along the line of FDOC, I'm sure we'll be treated to another great story. 


Get your read on!!
