"Evil is a completely different creature, Mac.
Evil is bad that believes it's good."
MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.
Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.
What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief, while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King that contains the power to create and destroy worlds.
In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac, and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman that haunts her dreams? More importantly, who is Mac and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?
From the luxury of the Lord Master's penthouse, to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover, to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac's journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and make a choice that will either save the world...or destroy it.
Moning has taken her heroine - and her readers - on a turbulent, emotionally devastating and truly unforgettable ride! Enormous kudos!

“Shadowfever” delivers an outstanding conclusion to a fabulous series.

Ms. Moning, much like Mac, takes her story and runs with it, balls to the wall, 550 pages to its uncompromising and satisfying conclusion.
Shadowfever is an explosion of mystery, action, passion, lust, love and magic. As I read this last book in the series I experienced surprise and wonder, shock and horror, sorrow and grief, hope and joy, and, in the end, satisfaction; I couldn’t have hoped for more.
~Beyond Her Book
Epic is the word that first came to my mind after I read the words “The End” and closed the book on what was an amazing journey. I don’t think I’ve ever read a more satisfying final book in a series. I can’t even count how many times I was taken by surprise, shocked, blindsided and thrilled. I was left emotionally spent and completely happy with the many unexpected paths this story took.

I cried, I laughed, I screamed, I cursed, I dropped my kindle due to astonishment, and I'm sure that I repeated that cycle several times throughout the book. I had this perfect way of how things would come together, and none of it happened the way I had it planned in my head. What KMM did was so beyond anything I could have divined, it made the book that much more awesome in my eyes. So, I'm sure as you may have guessed, I give this five stars. I would give it 500 if I could. It was just that perfect for me.

This series is exactly what an epic fantasy should be. An adventure. In every way.

Shadowfever surpassed every expectation I had. For as many theories I have discussed, I was completely shocked at most of the outcomes. There was not a single aspect I was disappointed in. My favorite part is that Barrons and Mac stay so true to their characters. Barrons doesn’t change, or yield to Mac. And I think KMM does an excellent job with keeping him so consistent. He stays broody, and possessive, and mysterious. An excellent end to my favorite series. This book gets an A++++++ from me. Thank you Karen Marie Moning for this extraordinary series.
Shadowfever, Mr. Eliot, did not end the Fever Series world with a whimper. It definitely was a bang. A big, wet and fulfilling bang. Take that however you feel is necessary.
I was in shock at how perfectly Karen was able to write this. She is an absolute genius.

This book was everything I expected, wanted, needed, craved... and so much more.

I can’t remember the last time I’d had so much fun watching a story unwind.
