Thank God it's over!
on 29 September 2012
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Books4Reviews.)
This is the fifth and final book in the Fever Series, and picks up where book 4 - Dreamfever left off.
Mac is in the world within the silvers, and she has just killed a beast - who turns into a human who Mac is horrified to have killed.
Mac then eventually finds her way back to Dublin, and continues her battle against the Unseelie, and her quest to find and capture the Sinsar Dubh.
I really don't know what to say about this book other than `thank god it's over'. Reading it was like swimming through quicksand - tiring and pretty pointless. It's not even like the book was bad, it just dragged - painfully dragged. At times I wasn't even sure I could bring myself to keep reading I was so tired of it.
My speculation on the cliff hanger at the end of book 4 was proven right, although ultimately, due to the storyline, this event meant nothing anyway.
The only redeeming feature of this book was that Mac finally had consensual sex with Barrons! About time too! And it only took 1781 pages to get there (yes, I worked it out, I was that bored.)
Overall; this book just really didn't do it for me. The pace was too slow, and ultimately I really didn't care what happened to the characters, or if they completed their quest or not. I will definitely not be reading this series again.
5 out of 10.
