Book of the Month

book of the monthHey everyone, hope you all put in a good New Year’s. I survived, and managed to not take anyone else out, either. Beauty! Anyways, I checked back in to be completely surprised by January’s Book of the Month. I would’ve bet good money on the winner being Darynda JonesThe Dirt on Ninth Grave, but by a margin of only four votes, Karen Marie Moning‘s Feverborn squeaked by. I didn’t see that one coming.


Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, FEVERBORN is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness and the redemptive power of love.

When the immortal race of the Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making—a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of all life itself—can save the planet.

But those who seek the mythic Song—Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada—must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: The Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among—and within—themselves.

January is looking like a really decent reading month. Feverborn is at the top of my must-have list, along with Ninth Grave and even Christine Feehan‘s Spider Game. Well, I expect to eye-roll my way through Spider Game, to be honest, but I am still looking forward to it.

    Looking forward to Feverborn eventually: I’m only on book 3 in the series. I’ve read all of the dark series by Christine but none of her other series. Tried Cat’s Lair and found myself wanting to punch out Eli and shake Cat until she grows a backbone. I had it for 3 weeks and returned it to the library half read. That very seldom happens to me so I was surprised at myself. 😕

      I came to the Fever books late in the game, too, and I was glad I waited so that there wasn’t that horrid year long waits after cliffhanger endings. That would’ve been ugly.

      Eli and Cat? Yeah, and I have the feeling that Trap and Cayenne (yep, Cayenne. Sigh) are going to be along the same lines. Overly dominant and controlling dude with hapless heroine. Sigh again.

        Yeah… I came to Fever about 8 months after Shadowfever came out… boy do I agree… Pretty much every cliffhanger starting with Halloween is crazy… I’d hate to have had to wait between books… been wary to continue since Iced and Burned have been so polarizing, it seems…

    I love this series and loved Ice from Dani’s perspective. I had hoped Burned would continue with Dani more but understand so many being upset about the age. In Burned the mirrors did age her, but the book although I loved it as i do all of Karen Moning’s book felt a little let down. These are my go to books to read again and again.
    Excited to read Feverborn and can’t believe it’s almost here!

      I would’ve loved for another “Dani” book, too. Maybe not the trilogy that was planned, but just one more. One sort of random Dani POV in the middle of a series of nine books is off.

        From the book synopsis and the the sneak peeks KMM has posted the last week or so, looks like Feverborn may give us “our” Dani back. Well, grown up and with a heck of a lot of baggage, of course. I’m also dying for kick-butt Mac back, as well. The whiny, scared-of-her-own-shadow version in Burned annoyed the bejeebus out of me. I get the character development, but still! Counting the days until 19th. I picked up this series when only the first two books were out. The waiting and cliffhangers have indeed been agonizing!!!

          I for some reason remembered that during Burned, there was a one page letter in it that sounded like it was written in the future. And it was signed Danielle O’Malley. Made me wonder if maybe Dani and Jada actually merge into Danielle?
