Warning: This is an adult paranormal book
I have to say, I didn't enjoy this addition to the Fever series as much as I did the first book.
I really enjoyed Darkfever the first book a lot. It was a refreshing and original take on faeries and a different book then I was used to reading. It was also probably the start of my desire to read more adult books then I had been. So to say that I was excited to read Bloodfever, the next book in the Fever series would have been an understatement. Yet, there was something that kept me from enjoying it as much as I would have liked.
And I think I know what it was. I think I was hoping for more of a romance in this book then came around. I wanted some love between Mac and Barrons. They are just so awesome together (even if they are fighting and bickering with one another most of the time). I wanted some hot and steamy between them, but when we finally get a scene with them kissing, I ended up more confused then ever. I'm not quite sure what happened between them in that cave, because unfortunately by that point (the end of the book practically) I was at the point where I was just skimming through the pages.
Another disappointment with this book is that I don't think anything new was really contributed. Mac and Barrons are still on rocky grounds "relationship" wise (if not even rockier grounds). We still haven't learned really anything about Barrons or what he really is or what his goal really is. V'lane is still seducing Mac and confusing her about everything else. The "shadowed" book, that needs to be found is no closer to be found. The Dark Lord was only present briefly, we did learn though that he can be frightened off by Barrons, for some reason. No real answers there....
What did Bloodfever do for this series, but manage to confuse me even more about what is going on.
I wanted some answers. I wanted some romance. I wanted some character development. And unfortunately, I didn't get any of those. I am no closer to understanding what is really going on then I was in the original book. I can only imagine what Faefever will bring me. All I can hope for is that it will clear up some of the confusion that the first 2 books in this series have managed to leave me with.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
