Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.

MacKayla Lane faces the ultimate threat when war breaks out between the kingdoms of shadow and light, as the #1 New York Times bestselling Fever series races to an explosive revelation.

From the moment MacKayla Lane arrived in Dublin to hunt her sister’s murderer, she’s had to fight one dangerous battle after the next: to survive, to secure power, to keep her city safe, to protect the people she loves.

The matter of who’s good and who’s evil can be decided by the answer to a single question: Whose side are you on?

Now, as High Queen of the Fae, Mac faces her greatest challenge yet: ruling the very race she was born to hunt and kill—a race that wants her dead yesterday, so they can put a pure-blooded Fae queen on the throne.

But challenges with her subjects are the least of her concerns when an ancient, deadly foe resurfaces, changing not only the rules of the game but the very game itself, initiating a catastrophic sequence of events that have devastating consequences and leave Mac questioning everything she’s ever learned and everyone she’s ever loved. Now begins an epic battle between Mortal and Fae, Seelie and Unseelie, would-be kings and would-be queens, with possession of the Unseelie King’s virtually unlimited power and the fate of humanity at stake.

From the exquisite, deadly gardens of the High Queen’s court, to long-forgotten truths found in the Sacred Grove of Creation, from the erotic bed of her enigmatic, powerful lover to the darkest, seductive reaches of the Unseelie kingdom, Mac’s final journey takes her places no human has been before, and only one human could possibly survive . . .

One who’s willing to sacrifice everything.

It’s my birthday today and feauturing Kingdom of Shadow and Light on this day seems perfect somehow. I knew this day would arrive but I still have mixed and sad feelings about the last book of the Fever series releasing in February 2021. I’m nowhere near ready to say goodbye to these characters but I’m also very curious to see where this conclusion will take everyone. I read the first book in 2011 (I even based my blog’s name on it!) so I’ve been reading these books for many years. It’ll be a really bittersweet goodbye. I just hope KMM doesn’t end up killing too many of my beloved characters off but I have my doubts. *sobs forever*

  1. Happy Birthday! I have only read the first book in the series–and I loved it. I don’t know why I haven’t read the rest of the series as it’s been awhile. I may have to re-read it and go from there. I am sad to see this series is ending. I hope the last book is amazing. Take care, Stephanie.

  2. Eeps! I seem to have missed your birthday! Many belated wishes and I hope 2021 goes great for you.

    I used to follow and love the Fever series back when there had only been the first 4 books about Mac and Jericho. I remember it was a rough journey but so very addictive. Hope Moning doesn’t kill off too many of her darlings!
