The highly anticipated 5th and final book in Karen Marie Moning's Fever series, was released yesterday.
This is one bandwagon I happily hoped on via audiobook when Ms. Moning released her first book, Darkfever, free as a podcast.
I have been following Mac and Barrons ever since and was very excited to finally get my hands on the grand finale!
Going to the bookstore is a treat for me, an indulgence.
And since I had some public speaking to do yesterday morning,
I figured I would reward myself with a brand new hardcover edition of Shadowfever.
Upon my arrival at the Vast Store of Literature and Fluff,
I was please to find Shadowfever displayed in a place of honor at the front of the store.
I was displeased to find Ms. Moning's previous 4 books missing from the fantasy section.
And even more displeased to find only 2 paperback copies of Darkfever
housed in the romance section next to her Highlander series.
I promptly moved Darkfever into its proper location in fantasy (this is not a romance people!)
and proceeded to leave the store empty handed.
No way was I going to pay $27 for the hardcover Shadowfever
if I couldn't have the rest of the series in print too.
Am I just a picky old b*tch or do I have something substantial to be pissy about here?
