Title: Shadowfever
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Series: Fever (Book 5)
Genre: Paranormal Romance

As with all of the fever series, it is very hard to give a description of this book without any spoilers. Let's just say it was amazing, and answered every question that I had had.

Who is the Beast? Check.
What is Barrons? Check.
What is up with Mac and the Prophecies? Check.
How did the Book Escape? Check.
Who Killed Alina? Check.

And so many more. I had noticed previously a small scene that happened that had me thinking the beast was/wansn't a certain character. When the opposite of what I thought would happen happened, I wondered how that was. Well - that was answered too.

Every time you think you have your understanding of what is going on, you are side swiped and everything changes. As a reader, you learn things that same way Mac does and I really felt for her.

This was an emotional book with lots of twists and turns. I cried in the first two chapters, was fist pumping and yelling a few more later, I was in shock, I was in denial, I was frustrated, I was saddened, I wanted revenge, I was hit over the head and my jaw dropped. It all came through in the near 600 pages.

I was pleasantly surprised at the end, in the about the author note that it said she was currently working on a new series set in the fever world. Although I assume it won't center around Mac and Barrons (and I love them), but I am kind of excited to see where the world goes. I'm thinking perhaps it will be about Dani? Her story was left slightly open at the end. Unless it's a totally new character.

As the book says in it's last pages. The end.... ...for now.
