"Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it's good."
MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.
Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.
What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.
In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?
From the luxury of the Lord Master's penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac's journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

1 . Book 6 please!
Posted January 03, 2012 by Lucidity , HanoverLet me start with ... I read the Fever Series before the Highlander Series. Once I finished the Fever series I had to have more, so I thought the Highlander Series was worth a shot. I wouldn't say it was a complete waste of time, but starting at book 4 is recommended...you get more background on the Keltar Druids. Drustan, Dageus and Cian are VERY interesting. I was actually hoping for an 8th book w/ Christian as the main character. The Highlander series is nothing like the Fever series...definatey pure romance novels (with a cool wrist).
I loved Shadowfever...I was happy with how things ended. When you finish the book, you can see that there is definate potential though for there to be several more Fever books. So many directions she can take this story still! I'll take a Book 6 please! I AM a Barrons fan. And wouldn't mind more of Christian if there are any future books.
2 . Duidism, highlanders, immortals from another dimension-What more could you ask for in a series!
Posted September 30, 2011 by Kesko , OntarioI started out reading the Shadowfever series and was quickly hooked by the mystery intertwined with good old Ireland. Then I started reading the Highlander series while I impatiently waited for other books in the Shadowfever series to be published. It was wonderful to see how both series intertwined and supported the main storyline in Shadowfever. The alpha male Scottish druids that came together in the Shadowfever storyline really do have amazing stories of their own. A must read.
3 . What a meal!
Posted September 13, 2011 by Leslie T , British ColumbiaThe first book in the series was sparse with detail and flavor. The second and third books were repetitive, like eating carrot and celery sticks on a diet. The fouth book was finally getting meaty. The fith book was the main course and dessert all in one. I liked that I was teased from the first to the fith book not unlike Mac and Barrons rocky relationship. This last book was a great insight into trust, compromise, acceptance and finally love. It was a fun two weeks of sitting in the sun, a cool drink and a bit of time on my hands to escape. Truth be told I was hooked from the very beginning, but unaware how much I enjoyed it until I was down loading the 4th book with lustful anticipation. I hope others find the meal was well worth the wait.
4 . Didn't want the book to end!
Posted September 08, 2011 by nikki , shreveportThis was a amazing addition to this series. It answered some questions but let enough unanswered to give me hope to future books with many of the characters that I enjoyed in these.
5 . I LOVED This Series MUST READ!
Posted August 16, 2011 by Loving KMM Fae , Pasadena, CAThis series is one of the most different from any series I have found, and I have read all of the best from JR Ward, Laurell K Hamilton, C. Harris, The Primes, Bones & Cat. This series blew my socks off. I could not put this series down. When you start, be sure to have the next books ready when you finish one, so you won't have to wait! The characters are so compelling, the story so surprising, you just cannot miss this one.
6 . best of the 5 fever series
Posted August 13, 2011 by ditto , californiait will keep you thinking and guessing what's gonna happen next... a good ending... for now. hope there's more to come!
7 . Well worth the wait.
Posted April 16, 2011 by Cecilia , Three SpringsI found myself going to Karen's website and previewing Shadowfever. WOW What a teaser! I had to wait another 2 more weeks before it was available to download.One would think sequels get dimmer as they go but Karen made the Fever series spectacular in its own right. Each one was extremely well written and blended right into the next one. I found myself with the "fever" just like everyone else. Isn't it GREAT! Can't wait for her next piece whatever it is I am sure I'll not be disappointed.
8 . Loved This Book!
Posted April 06, 2011 by Beth , HarrisburgI picked up this series about a month ago, but finished it in only one week! I could not put it down. I love Moning's style of writing, and I think that Mac and Jericho are two of the strongest written characters that I have come across in a while. Actually, almost every character in the story is believable and just as captivating as Mac!
9 . WOW
Posted March 21, 2011 by Julie , kunaThis is the best book i have ever read. These books just got better as they went on, and this is the best book yet! I am sad to see the series end but Karen Marie Moning ended it excellently! BEST BOOK EVER!
