Any musical clues to Mac & Barrons in Shadowfever songs? January 2, 2011

Before we get to the music ….

Fans of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series can’t wait to get their hands on the last book in the Mac/Barrons/V’Lane saga — SHADOWFEVER. We’re all re-reading the series and posting our different theories about Mac and Barrons and wishing the book release were today and not Jan. 18! But how is the author feeling? Here’s what KMM posted on her message board at her website today:

I’m nervous as can be about the many glitches that can occur and things that can go wrong. I’m hoping and praying everyone respects the reading experience for each other and no one spoils things. Excited? Yes! Anxious? Sure. I want to know if it was good for you. A huge chunk of you here at the forums have been with me since the beginning. You took the chance on Darkfever, even though it was different, and came back for Bloodfever. You withstood Faefever’s brutal ending and Dreamfever’s killer cliffhanger. You followed my muse when she went dark, kept the faith and trusted me. I don’t take that lightly. It means the world to me. In just over two weeks I get live a dream come true…I get to be there with you when you see Mac to the end of her journey. Did I say I’m excited? LOL! I can’t fecking wait!

In the meantime, check out all of her nifty stuff at her new website, including SHADOWSONG, the official soundtrack for SHADOWFEVER. Yup — I’ve already scanned the purchase page (CLICK HERE) for clues.

Some of the songs are tied directly to parts of the book. Others are not. But KMM says:

  • “Alone” is meant to be listened to as you start SHADOWFEVER.
  • “Lucky Again” is “a nod to the Keltar’s appearance in Shadowfever. They got drunk one night and sang down the walls of an Irish pub. Picture Dageus, Drustan and Cian singing to Chloe, Gwen and Jessi.” (Yes, I’m quoting her from the site and she said “Keltar’s”)
  • “Mercy I” is about a phone call we never got to hear Mac make.
  • “Just One Time,” “Headed for the Bottom” and “Don’t Give Up On Me” are tied to specific moments in the book. (The clip to “Just One Time” is interesting: “Just one time, when you know who I am. Just one more time, let me be your man” … Gee, I wonder who that could be?)

So Moning Maniacs, what do you think of the music? Any clues to what will happen in SHADOWFEVER? (No one really made much comment about the JZB song that kicks off once you’re on the main site. But it’s obvious — as it has been in the teasers — that Mac will have to make some sort of choice about JZB ….)

UP NEXT: I’m compiling a list of top Mac/JZB theories from your posts on this blog!
