Quite a few opinions I read prior to starting this series mentioned that Bloodfever
is the installment wherein the action truly takes off; that book #1 (Darkfever
) is the "set-up" novel, the one to be "gotten through" before hitting the story's juicy meat. (If you've read Bloodfever
you'll understand when I say, no pun intended). Interestingly enough, I disagreed with those who felt that way. I loved
the first book and chugging along just fine in the second, until I reached the fairly gruesome final chapters. (Though I'm not saying the "grisly factor" ruined the overall experience of Bloodfever
; I've just never been a big fan of gory horror and those last 20 to 30 pages weren't my favorite). I'm as addicted to the series as any other fan. I've already started Faefever
and have the final two installments on hold at the local library. I can hardly wait!
