I series hopped…

I’m cheating on you with the Fever series (Karen Marie Moning) and I’m enjoying it. *Said in best “Ross” voice,* “We were on a BREAK!!!!”. I laughed, I “awe’d”, I said huh?/ What the…., I blushed uncomfortably. But it was a good quick read.
My brain did hurt in some places in a “Twin Peaks” sort of way (hey there’s even a white mansion/ black corridor like the white lodge/ black lodge in Twin Peaks., but there weren’t any owls). I half expected the Seelie queen to be Laura Palmer. Speaking of which, I couldn’t get a visual for the Seelie Queen, they just said, “long silver hair and the size of an underdeveloped child.” Like a primordial dwarf with Treacher Collins? (*wonders* how many people did I offend with THAT statement).
There are similarities between the Fever series and the Outlander series: magic stones, fae stuff and some Scots.
I’m about 85 % finished with the last book. Here are my speculations:
• Mac is… the sinsar dubh.
• The book is…Cruce
•V’lane is… the Unseelie king (He’s such a Northman)
• Barrons is… no clue. Doesn’t matter. Barrons is Barrons. (Aidan from Being Human mixed with the dark haired dude on Spartacus… Manu…something or other)
• Christian MacKeltar is …someone who needs his own book series. I’ll write it. I have plans for the Druids.
•Dani is… a future super hero. I want her to team up with Young Ian Murray and fight crime and ensue in general badassery. Like Wonderwoman and…er… Tonto?
• The Unseelie court…:
I recommend this series if you like the Sookie books and have the ability to just go with it and don’t ask questions. It was a fun little fling, but I’m ready to settle back down with Echo…
uh oh the “Black Dagger Brotherhood” just winked at me. Nooooo!
And if you’re a mom with samll children whose read this:
