The Blurb from Goodreads: In the New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning's stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin's battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest-and most erotically charged-adventure of her life.
The Review:  “You’re leaving me, Rainbow Girl.”
Oh my, doesn't that quote above just make you melt? I love it! Dreamfever has honestly left me speechless! Honestly, I’m not even sure I can write a coherent review….but I’ll try.

After the events in Faefever, Mac has been turned Priya (Fae sex addict) after being raped by three of the Unseelie Princes and is now in the clutches of the Lord Master. Luckily enough Dani rescues her and takes her to the Sidhe Seer quarters.  While there, Rowena locks Mac up and treats her like dirty but thankfully, Barron’s comes to her rescue. After spending a few months Priya and surviving, which no-one has ever done before, Mac is now on the war path to find out answers and try to save the world after the walls between human and Fae have come down.

I can just say OMG again! Yep! The first few chapters of this book had me sitting on the edge of my seat…oh my, not even the edge; I was practically on the floor with anticipation and raw nerves. I’ve never felt so much emotion during the first few chapters of a book before but Ms Moning manages to create  emotional, breath-taking and spine-tingling scenes and chapter four…was the best! Chapter four, chapter four, chapter four! After reading that my heart was seriously torn from being completely full of joy and being heart broken. We see both Mac and Barron’s in a totally different light and if you don’t love Barron’s after that scene then you’re totally crazy. He does what he does best….saves Mac but in the most beautiful way. Mac did comment that she wished she had a choice about the things that happen to her over them awful months but what she doesn’t realise at the time is that it’s some of the best things that have happened to her.  I could re-read that chapter over and over…..and over again. However, after all the moments of joy, things quickly revert back to the normal Mac and Barron’s and I was highly frustrated with both of them. I don’t know why they fight so much when their clearly attracted to one another so it was a bit annoying.

The story develops really well and you can kind of see where the story is headed. All the key players are lined up nicely and I’m looking forward to seeing the end results. However, again I was a little frustrated with parts of the book, questions come up all the time and are never answers and just when you think you get somewhere more damn questions come up. I NEED ANSWERS! 
Now onto that ending…..the ending….oh my! I spent the last part of the book thinking, “what the hell has this got to do with anything?” Honestly, I couldn’t even think where the story was going and then wham! Oh my frigging god! What the hell happened? It couldn’t be who I think it was….and all I thinking was NOOOOOO! I needed more and I had to reach for Shadowfever straightaway.

Overall, Awesome fourth book and Ms Moning is doing better and better.
