Mac, Barrons, Jada, and Ryodan fight to save the world from the black holes that are about to consume it, ending anything and everything they touch. To make matters worse, Mac is possessed by the Sinsar Dubh, a sentient book of evil, and forced to do unspeakable things while under its control.
The book must be stopped, otherwise man and Fae will both perish, and the world will be lost to all. But how do you stop an all-powerful book? With the lost Song of Making. How do you get the Song of Making? Friends and enemies figure out how to finally work as a team and prepare for a battle that may kill some and leave others wishing they were dead.
When the book opens the world is falling to pieces. Mac is possessed, and forced to do some pretty horrendous things, the black holes are consuming the earth, and the Fae and humans, can’t figure out how to get along. Pretty much the book starts out with a bang, a few unsuspected punches, and leaves you wondering how anyone is going to survive. The pace starts out fast, and just keeps getting faster. There is so much at stake, not just for humanity, but for some of the characters we have grown to love.
If you are a fan of Mac and Barrons this book will not disappoint. The Rainbow Girl and her fiercely protective man were front and center in Feversong. Mac takes a beating several times, but still finds the strength in the end to fight back and take control of her life and her future. I was satisfied with the way their love story ended, but it wasn’t easy for them to get there. Mac grew throughout the whole series, becoming more than the self-centered girl we first saw sitting by her family pool too lazy to get a new cell phone. She lost people who she loved, gained more than she wanted, and was prepared to sacrifice herself to save others, she was a Mac to be proud of.
If you read the series for Jada/Dani and Ryodan, you’ll also love it. We see Jada become more Dani-like once again, she’s still that hard girl that reappeared from the Silvers a few books back, but she starts to soften and allow herself to let people in again. She also loses people she cares deeply about, and I was afraid that those losses would turn her back into a character that I didn’t really enjoy reading. I was never a big fan of Jada, but she fought hard to maintain a good balance between fighter and friend. Her love story is left unresolved, but I have a feeling we’ll be seeing another book that centers on her at some point.
Feversong had me on a rollercoaster of emotions: laughing, crying, ready to snap my Kindle in half. It was a fantastic conclusion to a series that has had me hooked since the very first page.
