End of Year Giveaway 3 - The Fever Series 1-4 by Karen Marie Moning

I initially had a hard time picking the books for my last end of the year giveaway. Once I thought about my most anticipated reads for 2011, it became easy. As many of you know the final book in the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning will be released on January 18, 2011. This is one of my all time favorite series. I loved her Highlander series, which is connected to the Fever series in ways I'm not all too clear about yet. I have questions upon questions, but like everyone else must wait until next month to get my answers. I'd like someone to join in the wait!

The Fever Series:

Format: Paperback, 384 pages
Publisher: Dell
Pub. Date: August 28, 2007
ISBN: 978-0-440-24098-3 (0-440-24098-0)

MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.

When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….

From the Hardcover edition.

I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .

In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.

New York Times bestseller
He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.
When MacKayla Lane receives a page torn from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil that it corrupts anyone who touches it.
Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shapeshifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, a lethal Fae prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man of deadly secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

They may have stolen my past, but I’ll never let them take my future.

When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the insatiable, immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, MacKayla Lane is caught in a deadly trap. Captured by the Fae Lord Master, she is left with no memory of who or what she is: the only sidhe-seer alive who can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of arcane black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds.

Clawing her way back from oblivion is only the first step Mac must take down a perilous path, from the battle-filled streets of Dublin to the treacherous politics of an ancient, secret sect, through the tangled lies of men who claim to be her allies into the illusory world of the Fae themselves, where nothing is as it seems—and Mac is forced to face a soul-shattering truth.

Who do you trust when you can’t even trust yourself?

  7. Ooh! I love, love, LOVE this series, and was hooked when Darkfever came out! It's been SO hard waiting each time for the next to come out. This time is worse, though, knowing it's the last. :(
    Thanks for the giveaway chance. Since I need to reread before Shadowfever comes out, I'll be crossing my fingers extra hard to win! :)

    I guess I'd be Seelie (Light Fae).

    +3... comment, follow, retweet. (no blog - I'm too boring!)

  8. I haven't read this series yet but I have heard amazing things. I think I would be for the unseelie or dark fae just because that sounds more appealing to me right now :)

  14. I have heard so much about this series from a friend of mine! Hummm... who could pass up an offer like this! Please count me in!!! Thanks for the chance to win these books!

    And I think I would be Unseelie... something about that just seems intriguing!

  15. I tend to score high on the evil genius quiz, so maybe I have a shot of surviving a few minutes at the Unseelie court. But I think I'd rather be part of the Seelie Court. The survival odds are better and there has to be a use for someone who appreciates Unseelie plottting.

    I haven't read the fever series, but I enjoyed the books that came before it.

  17. I haven't read any of this series so it would be great to get my hands on them.

    Thanks as usual for opening the giveaway to worldwide entries.

    I think would would chose Unseelie (Dark Fae) for the simple reason that we always try to be good in real life and it is just great fun to imagine ourselves a bad dark characters !
