Karen Marie Moning – Fever Series Reading Order

by Maryse on August 16, 2009 · 56 comments

in Karen Marie Moning, Reading Order Guide:

One of my all-time FAVORITE series. NOT to be missed!! If you haven’t read this series yet, do yourself a favor and get on this right away. I promise, you’ll love it!

As per the author’s website:

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

Shadowfever was pre-order on my nook for January 18th I believe.

Maryse October 9, 2010 at 10:01 PM

Thanks Heather!! Got it updated ;) I can’t wait.

Penny March 20, 2011 at 7:28 PM

Okay, soooo…I’m on chapter 18 already of Darkfever and I’m not liking Barrons, actually kinda want to smack him, lol. I have this feeling he’s going to be a love to hate kinda guy….

Maryse March 23, 2011 at 8:16 AM

Yup… I won’t say any more ;) Anxious to hear how addicted you become.

Penny March 23, 2011 at 11:43 AM

Im halfway thru Dreamfever. GRRRRR…ok, so..why does Barrons aggravate me so much? I am reading them like crazy since I promised my boys a trip down to Orlando next week and it will be on my mind if I don’t get through these books, lol.

Penny March 25, 2011 at 5:50 PM

Ok,finally done!! Still not sure I wouldn’t haul off and give Barrons a good swift kick in the…..ummm shin :) if I were to meet him. Yet, he won me over in the end. I just wish it didn’t take four books for he and Mac to finally just come together. Sooo, what’s next? Hmmmmm…

Melissa April 13, 2011 at 7:38 PM

I KNOW!! I don’t like the end….for now. What is that. I WANT MORE!!! :) LOVE LOVE LOVE these books. Very awesome series and Mac and Barrons make a great team. Its a love hate thing. I just read the Night Huntress series and Cat and Bones remind me of M & B. U should check it out.

Penny April 14, 2011 at 5:45 AM

I love that series too. Did they ever announce where FeverCon was going to be?

Debbie May 30, 2011 at 5:25 PM

My cousin suggested this series to me 2 weeks ago. WOW! I’m so hooked. I started Shadowfever last night. Jericho Barrons….SWOOON!

Maryse May 31, 2011 at 7:31 PM

Oh yes. Barrons is hard to beat. I’d love to hear how you liked the end.

Jenn July 1, 2011 at 12:54 AM

THANK YOU! I found this website very, very helpful. Noting the reading order and recap of each author and series is clear and informative….refreshing!

Kathryn Hughett August 23, 2011 at 9:42 AM

I just started reading this series yesterday. I was able to get all of the books at Half-Price books in Milwaukee in the past 2 weeks so I can race through the series. I am 1/3 of the way through book one and I’m dissappointed that there hasn’t been any sex yet. I’m so used to several PNR authors’ writing styles where you could get some action in the sack within the first 3 chapters. Karen Moning writes about a subject I am very familiar with, the sidhe, and I’ve been to England and Scotland so I’m familiar with how things look in that part of the world. I like her style of writing too but I’m still waiting for something a little titillating. If it weren’t for that excerpt you directed us to on her website I might have given up already.

Crystal September 9, 2011 at 8:54 AM

O HOT DAMN!!!! Barrons could brand me anyday!! I finished reading the series last night I blew through Shadowfever. Even from the beginning I liked Barrons but towards the end YUMMY!! I just wana say thanks for recommending this series, and please keep up with your site cause it’s very helpful….Thanks a bunch :)

Dinah October 7, 2011 at 12:22 AM

I have been stalking your website for over a year now and I just want to say that you have cost me sooooo much money with all of the books that I have been forced to buy because you have recommended them lmao :D
OOOhhhh you really do have some of the most awesomest (not a real word I know lol) reviews and the characters and worlds I have melted into have been so memorable that I in turn recommend them to my friends and they in turn have gotten hooked :)
This series was one I fell in love with straight away and Barrons, well he for me was just pure hotness, loved him and Mac. Just really easy for me to like and wonder about the characters from the start of the series to the end!
Thanks so much for creating this little place in cyberspace where I can find this information on book genres I happen to love to bits and this place has so many books that I have yet to find one recommendation from you that I didn’t like :)

Anita November 13, 2011 at 11:51 AM

I agree, this is my all time favorite series of books!! I have read them all 3 times since the beginning of the year, is that crazy or what? I just love the way Karen developed her characters and the I LOVE the tension between Mac and Barrons! Oh how I wish I could weave a story like she does!! Would love to know if there is going to be anymore stories in this series?
PS-Just found your website and I’m a fan of yours as well Maryse!! Keep up the good work!

Anita November 13, 2011 at 11:56 AM

Oops, I actually just finished reading your blog on the Fever Series and it answered my last question.

Rebeka November 18, 2011 at 10:25 PM

I’m Obsessed Hunnie :) If it wasn’t for you , Haha. Thankyou So much! :)

Maryam December 13, 2011 at 1:52 AM

Thank you sooo much for putting this series on this list!!! I don’t know what I would have done knowing such a great series existed without ever reading them! I definitely have the FEVER! I could not put these books down until I was all done! I think I have a new “book boyfriend”- Barrons! So 5 books later I am dying for more. Cant wait till the next one!

Jen March 15, 2012 at 2:29 PM

So… I am getting ready to re-read this series now that I’ve gone through the highlander series… I think it’s amazing and I’m still completely obsessed with JZB!!! Yummmmm!!! I do think its worth mentioning that there is some back story in the highlander books towards this series… Nothing super critical but I am excited to re-read after learning more about the MacKeltar – yum to them too!

Maryse March 15, 2012 at 3:31 PM

Awesome! I’ve only read the first 3 Highlander books (no idea why i stopped, as I loved them) and I hear Adam Black is something else!! I love how Karen fits the books together like a puzzle.

Angelia March 29, 2012 at 4:51 PM

Ok first and formost, I love this site, and want to thank you so much for introducing me to the” worlds” of Karen Marie Moning , I have devoured the Fever series , And have already pre-ordered everything Ms Moning has coming out this year. I’ve been reading her, Highlander series the last week and a half “Braw, sexy, kilt clad men” …*sigh* . Just finished the 6th in the series, Immortal highlander. Adam Blacks story, ( Im soo in love..) By far my favorite in her highlander series, and highly recommend you catching up, lol! Thanks again for such a great site!

Jesmin May 15, 2012 at 2:26 PM

Maryse, I want to thank you for your blog beacuse I am now never short of recommendations. I am now reading the Fever series because of you. I have loved everything you have recommended so far. I have just finished IAD series Kresley Cole, delicious, but seriously addictive. I have recommended your website to my friends. So know you even have followers of your blog in London UK. Don’t ever stop! Jes

Maryse May 15, 2012 at 2:31 PM

Hi Jesmin!!

So glad you are here with us and enjoying the recommendations!! I LOVE the Fever series (one of my favorites forever!) *hug* to you and your friends from me!!

Cleo Buss July 24, 2012 at 6:06 PM

I am an avid reader and the stories you recommend are terrific…appreciate the reading orders and hints about other good series. Am currently in love with Jerico Barrons after reading the fever series, and looking for a copy of Iced….So happy Karen has agreed to continue writing more books…so many questions still unanswered…can’t wait!!

Jen August 23, 2012 at 4:18 PM


Love this series!!!! I found your website about a year ago by accident and have LOVED every book you’ve recommended. I go through books quickly and love that I can come back to your site and always find another surprising new author that I can fall in love with!
Keep up the great recommendations! :-)

Michala September 24, 2012 at 12:24 PM

This series is my ultimate favorite!

angela October 25, 2012 at 10:27 AM

OMG, I don’t know whether I love or hate this series. I am in the first quarter of Shadowfever and I am so mad at Mac. This series is so back and forth, up and down I am about to scream! I just want to skip to the end for the final outcome. I have never read a book that I wanted to cheat so bad with just to get to the end.

Maryse, this series is the first that I questioned your expertise. Grrr it is really pissing me the FECK off, lol.

BTW love your site and will continue to use it even if the jury is still out on this one. But boy gotta love Barrons!!!!

BTW love your site and will comtinue

angela October 26, 2012 at 1:38 PM

Okay I more than halfway thru Shadowfever; and am I the only one that think Mac is self-centered and the world is supposed to revolve around her and her decisions? Mac is on my last nerve. Grrrr. I have to stop and take a breather bedore I can continue. I don’t think I have ever read a book that the heroine irritates me the way Mac does!

Debbie B December 4, 2012 at 10:45 AM

I loved Iced. I thought it was the best book so far, much different than the others yet still ties in nicely with the fever books. I do miss Barrons and Mac but this will hold us over till those books come out. Mac is growing up, she’s funny and I like getting into the other characters. Is Ryodan gonna be a love interest or a father interest for Dani, hmmmm? I thot Barrons was the big boss of the beasts that can’t die but Ryodan seems pretty much in charge in this book, we shall see. I love this author!

Amanda C December 20, 2012 at 5:22 PM

I wanted to thank you for all your wonderful suggestions. I’ve been laid up for the last year and a half and you have helped me get through them.

Marlene Kafoto January 20, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Hi. New to the forum but I have read all the books and I have to say Iced is excellent!! K. MONING gives the best twists and just leaves me at the edge of my seat!! I was so aggrivated with Mac at first but she had come out on top. I love the stubborness of both Mac and Dani. I wish Dani would hurry up and grow already. I really want to see if Dani is someone akin to Barrons and his men….well, a female version.

Alicia July 1, 2013 at 11:31 PM

Have you ever read ant of Nicole peelers books.

dianne September 10, 2014 at 1:04 PM

I read these books when they first came out and enjoyed them a lot. In my mind though always wanted it to be Mac and Alina fighting back-to-back instead of Mac and Dani. Just thought it would have been such fun to have two sisters(Alina and Junior aka Mac) that totally adored each other and searching for answers together and falling in love with questionable “men” instead of having Mac bond with this child Dani. Just my humble opinion though. Still loved the series even if slightly annoyed and confused at the end of Shadowfever.

Chris September 11, 2014 at 10:10 AM

Love Karen!! Loved the highland series, must of read it 3 times. If u could suggest any authors like Karen, Jeniene Frost or Lynsay Sands I’d apperiat it.

Mary October 19, 2014 at 6:05 PM

Just got done reading the Fever series and I loved them. But. What the feck is Barron’s?

Maryse October 19, 2014 at 6:44 PM

LOL!! Good question Mary. ;)

Debbie November 1, 2014 at 11:24 PM

After reading the Highlander Series, I have to be honest, I didn’t really think the fever series was my style. Boy was I wrong! Its probably one of the best series I’ve ever read…and I read a lot. Can’t wait for “Burned” to come out, nor the trilogy.

Annette November 13, 2014 at 10:31 AM

Question: I haven’t read anything by this author and am looking for someone to tell me if I should start with this series or Highlander. Anyone?

Jude December 6, 2014 at 12:09 AM
Jude December 6, 2014 at 12:12 AM

Sorry, Highlander first, unless you want to get to the more far out stories faster, in which case you read the last Highlander book and the jump right into the Fever series.

Basically, the Highlander books introduces you to the participants of the Fever Series. It’s very clever how Ms. Moning does that.

Sandy February 25, 2015 at 4:35 PM

Did not care for the first few books, but kept reading the series and I became addicted to Mac and especially Barron’s!! He is one bad dude and I love it when he calls her Ms. Lane!! I also love the 9 immortals tat are in his pack. Burned gave me a little look of what they might be. Love the series!

Michelle Belle July 13, 2015 at 1:07 AM

Ok so I’m about ready to start ICED ….honestly I’m not looking forward to it as much as I did to each new fever book…tell me…will I love it or hate it???

Nat August 15, 2015 at 12:28 AM

Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve burned through the first few books and now half way through Dreamfever! As much as I’m loving this series, I’m hating it too! Loving the Mac / Barrons / V’lane storyline but GOD the angst between them, especially Barrons, is killing me! And Mac’s journey is crazy! I feel for her… I’m not sure if I can live this series out!!! I’m ready to skip straight to the end just to see what happens!

But I think Nalini Singh’s Psy series is my absolute fave!!!

Susan Bunch August 21, 2015 at 10:59 PM

How much is Feverborn if you preorder it, and can I get it on Kindle or Amazon.

Susan Bunch August 21, 2015 at 11:12 PM

I think I made a mistake or did I. I thought the name of the book coming out in Jan. was Feverborn. But than I see that there is a book called Feversong. HELP ME PLEASE¡!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!

Andrea April 5, 2016 at 10:39 PM

Fever born is the january one and fevers on is later in the year

Sandy July 29, 2016 at 3:02 PM

I was disappointed in Feverborn. Hopefully the last book in the series –Feverson will be much better. I love the series, but I did not like the last book.

Diana March 1, 2018 at 9:17 PM

High Voltage (Fever) Is available for pre-order now..Release date March 6th! I’ve been waiting an entire year for this. Can’t wait to see see what Dani,Ryodan (and maybe MacKayla & Barron) are up to.

Albert Flores April 10, 2018 at 4:59 PM

I am a Fever fan. I read the 1st six books a couple of years ago and then life interrupted. Glad there are more books. I may need to read “cliff notes” or visit a website that gives synapses of the stories to get re familiarized. Any suggestions.

Diana Omolade April 11, 2018 at 7:23 AM

I’m not aware of any synopsis sites; GoodReads maybe? I think the series is worth a re-read. There are so many details in each book. Good luck.

Kerri Jo Aitchison July 10, 2018 at 2:22 PM

Ok, just ripped through the fever series and definitely want more, High Voltage left me needing more Barron’s and Mac but stayed engrossed without them. Moning did leave it wide open to keep the series going. Any idea Maryse, if she plans on adding more? Btw, I happened upon your blog about 5 years ago when I finished ( all that were published anyway) the Black Dagger Brotherhood (swoon)!!, looking for more like it, and became an avid reader and really value your recommendations, thank you so much!

Maryse July 12, 2018 at 3:47 PM

Hi Kerri Jo!!!

Oh I LOVE this comment and you just made my day!! *big squeeeeeeezy hug*

I shall investigate on what’s next in this series… ;)

Christina July 12, 2018 at 5:51 PM

Hey Maryse,
I’m came across your blog while looking for a new paranormal romance series and I have read many series that you recommend. Thank you for all of those. Karen Marie Moning is one of my favorite. Her fever series

Leslie Jack March 20, 2019 at 3:26 AM

Hey, First off I love the series!!! I am a little puzzled though. I came across fever moon and when i look up the book by itself it states that its in the series but if you look up the series in order you dont see it listed. So I am wondering if anyone has read this book or not and if its a side book to the series or i truly missed a book that was supposed to be squeezed in between the others somewhere???
