Book Review - Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning

Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning 

I was intrigued after Tea Time with Marce asked whether she'd get the fever.

Ugh, I should have just listened to her when she said she abandoned it.

Urban fantasy is totally not my genre. I'd only read one, Moon Called (Mercedes Thompson, #1) by Patricia Briggs and thought it was just meh but I did finish it.  But I thought maybe I just haven't found the right book. Darkfever started out fine, I wanted to find out why the protagonist's sister was murdered in Ireland. But the story went downhill once she landed in Ireland... it just got repetitive and nothing happened and I just lost interest... I just couldn't get engaged and just didn't care anymore when I see the words Seelie and Unseelie or whatever they are called.

Have to say, I like Twilight better than this and I am not even a Twilight fan. At least I finished it and googled to see what happened in Book 2-4.

Note - The book was borrowed from the library.

  1. High five, you are my reading sister :-) I did ask someone do we get anywhere with the death of her sister when she said no that sealed the deal, no longer interested.

    I have never tried Twilight but this genre is definitely not for me.

    1. Ugh about the sister's death. They probably solve it in Book 5 or something! I read Twilight just to see what the hype is, since it's YA, the writing is much simpler so it was a fast read. But yeah, vampires/zoombies etc are not my thing (though I did like watching the Interview with a Vampire movie back then...) I guess I don't mind the movies as much as the books.

  2. Ok, Ok, I"m listening to both of you...I'm returning my copy to the library. :)

    1. Hehe, well Marce and I seem to be the minority :) At least you can always re-borrow from the library if you feel like it!

  3. Christa, my real life friend read the 1st with me, loved it. She told me today that she is starting the last book already, she totally caught the fever, lol.


    Book 6 still no answer to the sisters murder yet :-0 supposedly it doesn't matter anymore, sigh.

    Definitely we made right decision to stop and not continue on.
