About The Fever Book Series
If you are planning to read the Fever series for the very first time, then it only makes sense that you should want to learn a little more about what this series is about.
Like we briefly touched upon above, this series centers around Mackayla Lane. Very sadly, her sister was killed and the story opens with Mackayla making the decision to go after the killer so that she can bring her sister to justice.
With not too much to go off, Mackayla has only one clue that will help her find the killer: a very cryptic message that she is going to get on her phone.
After Mackayla receives the mysterious voicemail, her quest to find her sister’s killer leads her to Ireland.
Once she arrives, Mackayla hopes that she will be able to get some answers in the real world – but she soon discovers that she has been gifted with a magical power that allows her to see something far beyond the waking world…the shadow realm!
This dimension is not a place that the average person can see, and this is made pretty clear to Mackayla when she starts to see the fake people who reside in the shadow realm.
As soon as Mackayla enters the shadow realm, everything in her bones is telling her that it is somehow related to what happened to her sister, but what is the truth?
How can she get to the bottom of what happened to her? The series follows Mackayla on her quest to find out and includes a variety of themes such as:
- Familial Ties
- Life and Death
- Good vs. Evil
Fever Book Series In Order
Now that I have provided you with an overview of what this series is all about, I am now going to go ahead and explore the correct reading order
In the first installment of this series, the reader is introduced to Mackayla Lane. Her life is pretty good – she has amazing friends, a job that she enjoys and her car only breaks down now and then.
Mackayla thinks that she’s pretty normal, especially as far as her life is concerned. Still, all of that changes when something unexpected happens.
Sadly, her sister is murdered and all that Mackayla has as a clue is a strange and cryptic message left on her cell phone.
Determined to find answers and bring her sister to justice, Mackayla’s mysterious voicemail leads her all the way to Ireland, and before she knows it -she soon discovers that she has a magical gift that allows her to see into the shadow realm where the faces live.
As Mac finds herself delving deeper into the mystery surrounding her sister’s death, she feels almost certain that the shadow realm is linked to it all… but how?
There are whispers of an all-powerful dark book that poses the ultimate danger, and Mac knows that she needs it.
But, with the dangerous face, Vlane, trying to close in on her and Mac’s undying attraction to Jericho, a mysterious man she feels strangely drawn to – can Macayla solve what happened to her sister and save her world as she knows it?
