I love books, I have said this many times before so you know it is true. I have been reading the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning and I am hooked. There have been 3 books so far and the 4th one is due out on August 18th, 2009. The main character is called MacKayla and there are Mac fans around the world. These books are quickly becoming part of the pop culture as they grow in popularity.
There is some head gear created by the main character called a Machalo. Fans got together and made a real one. The author was so taken with it that she started shipping it to fans so they could take their picture with it. The darn thing has now been more places than a seasoned traveler. I have included some of the pictures below so you can see how involved people have gotten with this story.
My only complaint is the amount of time it takes for the next book to come out, roughly a year. Book three left us on pins and needles with a life threatening cliffhanger and finally after a year of waiting and speculating we will find out how she survives on Tuesday (sigh). I gave ’80 the first 3 books to read a year ago and she is hooked too. The characters just draw you into Mac’s alternate world where “The Fae” and “Vampires” are real. Where the shadows themselves are alive and can kill you. If you need a good summer read and enjoy a break from reality then try these books, but remember “keep to the light”.
