Yup, I’m still thinking about it. Even more so now, since writing my review. I’m still going over different parts of it in my head, re-analyzing situations that occurred throughout the series, now that I finally know the answers. I was so thrilled to see my best book bud (Lily from Lilium’s Realm) this morning, and even more relieved to find out she finished the book and wanted to chat!
SPOILER ALERT!!! PLEASE do not continue below, if you have not read the series (or this book) yet.
But…I just had to post this, as it is a true conversation between two Fever addicts (it’s a little *raw*). I encourage any of you to join in on the discussion 🙂
Lily:I loved Shadowfever
me: u read it all? that is so cool
Lily: yeah I finished it Sat
Lily: Cruce – didnt see that coming
me: it took me two days to finish my review of it
did u think of me considering I was a V’lane girl?
Lily: didnt see the whole book touching the baby thing
Barrons loving her
Mackaylas Masterpieces and Miscelleny or whatever it was
didnt see that coming
didnt see the king being the dreamy eyed guy
it was full of blindsides
all of it
and my new fave phrase?
me: yah and how barrons was always making a point to tell her about his “needs”
every guy she spoke to
did u f* him
cause u still havent f* me
Lily: lol it was funny I loved when she said
me: i wish there was more of the two of them…
oh my favorite line?
Lily: “do that I will become V’Laines private pri-ya” and he rattled at her
me: “That’s it. Your not going. Get back in my bed” – that made me laugh
Lily: LOL me too
me: yah right!? when he told her that she broke all the rules for him or whatever – his way of saying he loved her
and I liked when she pushed him in the shower and he started to go all Beast on her and she stopped and soothed him that was unexpected
but I wanted to wring her effin neck when she almost unmade the damn world for him because she thought he was dead
and then BAM she has him back and is being a bitch to him WTF?
Oh Dani killing her sister….woah total blindside
me: oh yah!! right? that’s one of my points in my review – how ridiculous everytime he was dead she swore to change for him and love him then he was back and she was an ass!
How about her mortal dad? he really rolled with the punches didnt he?
ok one little thing
me: yah i liked that
how about the fact that now two people have the book vlane and her weird wonder if there will be more like in 5 years or something
Lily: supposed to be a spin off about Dani as far as I have heard
me: well i know that “her” story is done now but i cant help but think it isnt
i didn’t like dani much to tell the truth she bored me
i know many people do like her but for me she was a pain in the ass
Lily: LOL no worries I thought she was too Too effin cocky I didnt like it
me: yup and too much time spent on her – i dunno – she was sweet and good and all that…but when it was danni’s turn in the book i read intently in case of something but was never happy “it was danni” again
I have a few “what?!” things though
like what the hell up with sex photos in the same album with your graduation pics?
that was strange, and it felt out of place
I mean I get that the moment was needed to show that Darroc loved her but why not in a seperate album or just lose in the back or something?
one other little thing
So she can be killed by her spear?
me: oh right def my thought too
Lily: I mean she was a mad woman with that thing what would have happened if she pricked herself and why didnt she think of that herself after all the rhino boy she was munching on? I mean she mentions knowing about the slow slow death Malluce got she had to fear that for herself after hauling those baby food jars around
they never said what happened to him
he was going Fae and looking weird and then just being a dick and hating Mac for feeding him Unseelie and then nothing else about him or did I miss something?
me: no he left
HE is the spinoff mostly about him i heard. unless he only gets one book
me: yeah i agree
someone turning into an unseelie prince or is it a seelie? whatever – too cool
Lily: another reason I dont think the series is over? Mac owes both the Gray Woman and The Unseelie King favors
me: of course
Lily: no way is that standing openended
me: she IS the book – she WAS the book in her own way – how cool was that?
I mean Barrons had his book all along but when he “truly loved her” he told her to sink it.
Lily: I know!
ah I love this line, Im so glad you put in the review
How could he be mortal? How dare he be mortal?
I loved her grief outrage
and the fact “he hates when Im melodramatic”
Sidhe-seer that a certain Seelie Prince said the world should fear.
oh he so knew
I had to be ripped in half to stop feeling so torn in two
me: yah right!!
u know what it reminded me when she squatted and screamed and screamed
she reminded me of “xhex” who all of the sudden stopped screaming and was all
“ok i’m done with that”
it’s like – i totally GET that – the outrage and despair to just act crazy, absolutely loony and then stop cause u see yourself and then go “hell that didnt fix anything”
No let’s be perfectly precise: She’s grinding herself against him and shoving her tongue halfway down his throat.
My monster rattles it’s cage.
effin right. I love Barrons
I know he is an asshole but I like that
I am so screwed in the head
me: oh yah! – he’s SUPER polite and extremely crude at the same time so what i quote out of his mouth will always be “ummmm okay”
this is fun
crap I sound like Danni
Ok so we’ll probably be talking about it all day…. but in the meantime… any thoughts?
What do you think is next? Do you think, the way the book ended, that Mac will be a focus once again, in the future?
Opinions? Your own “what?” moments? Let’s discuss!
