DreamWorks has secured the rights to Karen Marie Moning's "Fever" series, Variety reports. The first novel, Darkfever is planned for adaptation with a full franchise being eyed.
On her official site, Moning describes the initial novel, published in 2006, as follows:
"My philosophy is pretty simple-any day nobody's trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven't had many good days lately."
MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman.
Or so she thinks... until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister's killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae..
The series has four published sequels, including "Bloodfever," "Faefever," "Dreamfever" and, published in January of this year, "Shadowfever."
