Continues to deliver a creepy cool world that scares and seduces with equal measure.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

I fell in love with these characters and this world in DarkFever. The story was dark, sexy, and broke from so many of the UF/PNR pitfalls that I nearly shouted with joy after reading it. BLOODFEVER picks up immediately after Darkfever (Mac still has the bruises from her battle with John Jr.) and continues to deliver a creepy cool world that scares and seduces with equal measure.

I'll confess to being more than a little curious about V'lane, the death-by-sex fae (I'm sure I'm not the only one), and really hoped that he would turn out to be more that a clever plot device as the series progressed. In BLOODFEVER, he doesn't lose his lethal sexuality, but he does gain depth and an element of humanity that made him infinitely more appealing in my book.

And while I was already a fan of Mac, her growth in BLOODFEVER made me like her all the more. She has long since shed the ignorant, frivolous southern belle skin she wore when she first arrived in Ireland. She learns, she adapts, and she never wallows. Talk about a woman after my own heart.

I gave the first Fever book a perfect rating and the only reason that BLOODFEVER isn't getting the same rating is because the overall plot this time out wasn't as strong. Mac is still hunting her sister's killer and working as Barrons' private OOP (objects of power) detector, but there isn't a main storyline apart from that. Mac does make contact with other sidhe-seers and V'lane does more that drip sex, but other than that, BLOODFEVER is more character driven and seems to be setting things up for a juicy tale in the next book, Faefever. My review will be up next month as we continue our countdown to the release of Shadowfever in January 2011!

Sexual Content: References to sex. A couple scenes of sensuality.
