Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning picks up after the horrendous events of the previous novel and follows MacKayla Lane (Mac) as she tries to recover herself. Nobody has ever recovered from being Pri-ya but Mac has resources, allies and friends beyond that which is available to the typical person and she and Jericho Barrons resume the struggle against the Unseelie and Seelie who are destroying humanity. Mac must not only struggle against external enemies but the uncomfortable relationships with Barrons and V’lane and their failure to rescue her from her captivity and torture color her interactions with them even as they continue to compete for her assistance and companionship. The special mirrors (Silvers) that offer access to travel through dimensions become more important but the desire to protect the precocious Dani and her freeze-frame ability entangle Mac in yet another struggle, this time for control of the Abbey and the rest of its sidhe-seers. Mac’s life has become one giant roller-coaster ride and this time she may have reached a plummet that she is going to be unable to compensate for.
Another excellent addition to the eerie universe that Moning has created so successfully through the past three books in the series. The gut-wrenching end of Faefever reminds one that fairy tales can and usually are much darker than the familiar popularized versions but MacKayla has matured nicely into her “Mac 4.0” version. The mysterious Barrons and inconstant V’lane still retain their ambiguity even as they reveal occasional glimpses of a less self-serving personality that wars with the potent sexuality that they wield against MacKayla. Another startling cliffhanger ends this chapter in the wild ride that has characterized the series thus far, good thing the grand finale is not far away!

They may have stolen my past, but I’ll never let them take my future.
When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the insatiable, immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, MacKayla Lane is caught in a deadly trap. Captured by the Fae Lord Master, she is left with no memory of who or what she is: the only sidhe-seer alive who can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of arcane black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds.
Clawing her way back from oblivion is only the first step Mac must take down a perilous path, from the battle-filled streets of Dublin to the treacherous politics of an ancient, secret sect, through the tangled lies of men who claim to be her allies into the illusory world of the Fae themselves, where nothing is as it seems—and Mac is forced to face a soul-shattering truth.
Who do you trust when you can’t even trust yourself?
