Waiting on Wednesday: Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


I have been waiting for the release of Shadowfever, the conclusion of her phenomenal Fever series, since I finished reading the last page of Dreamfever - talk about a cliffhanger ending! Shadowfever was originally due to be released in December, then got pushed back to January. Was I disappointed? Sure. But Ms. Moning has promised it's worth the wait! I need my Mac and Barrons fix now!!!

From the author's website:

"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.

AND - the best part - Karen Marie Moning just announced she's coming to New Orleans for the Shadowfever launch party!!! Woot! I am so freakin' excited!! It looks like she's planning events for Monday January 17 (Martin Luther King day here in the US) and Tuesday January 18. I wouldn't normally take a day off for a booksigning, but this is an exception to that rule - Ms. Moning knows how to throw a party and this is one of my all-time favorite series - I can't take both days off so I'm going to have to figure out which day I should be there...Anyone else thinking of coming in?
