Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning Review



Writing this review makes so very sad. I am a big fan of KMM and the bloggers/reviewers whose opinions I respect and have read this book all seem to have enjoyed this book so much more than I did. I thought that this would be a no brainer for me and I would be swept away and love every minute of this book; unfortunately that is not what happened. I like the book enough to continue on with the series, but it was a struggle for about the first third of the book. Dare I say it aloud? Yes, I will. I didn't particularly like MacKayla (Mac) very much in the beginning of the book and if it weren't for the fact that I was hell bent on enjoying this book I probably would have stopped reading it pretty early on. However, I am happy that I didn't because it seems that going from blonde to brunette helped Mac's personality quite a bit. Read into that what you will, it's the truth! I know that much more played into Mac's transformation but the hair color was symbolic as well as necessary. Please don't contact me saying that I am prejudiced against blondes, some of my best friends have blonde hair. I no longer had to fight the urge to roll my eyes at her thoughts and actions by the end so that helped a lot too.

The story picks up at the halfway point and I definitely enjoyed the characters of Barrons and V'lane. KMM can absolutely write some amazing alpha males. I will continue with the series, but I am going to pick up a few other books before I go back to his series. I'm still reeling from the fact that KMM wrote something that I didn't fall head over heels in love with. When I have sufficiently recovered from this emotional blow I will return to the Fever world refreshed and ready to be swept away. Hopefully.

Happy Reading!
Monica
