Guilty Pleasure - Fever Series



The past couple of weeks I've been re-reading a series of books that despite having read several times, hook my attention everytime. I came across them when Darkfever was the featured free book of the week. I couldn't stop reading and read all six books in a matter of days. Book 7 wasn't yet available but I pre-ordered it and it was worth the wait.

They are a guilty pleasure. Pure fiction, fantasy, an adventure, romance (yes, there is some sex). The characters are well-rounded and the story complex enough to draw you through the whole series. 

The series takes place in Ireland. It is about the world changing. You will learn about the difference between the bad Faery and the good Faery (who aren't really good, just less bad). Yes, it's another pre- and post-apocalyptic series. It can be a bit dark but is balanced with humorous interactions between the characters. 

The main character is a young southern raised college student who goes to Ireland to get answers about the recent murder of her sister. What she learns is unexpected and she struggles to find her place. The overall lesson: nothing is black and white, good or bad, and maybe, just maybe, Faeries do exist. 

If you haven't read the Fever series by Karen Moning, I would recommend you pick up the first book and see what you think.

If you have, please share what you thought of the series below. Did you love it or hate it?
