When the spirit fever struck a town, a village or an outpost, it left few if any survivors. The white man blamed the Indian saying they used their mojo on them.  The Indians blamed the white man for angering the spirits.  The survivors knew it didn’t matter.  The Fevered were forever changed.

A gift he needs to tame…
Kid feels what the world around him feels, he is a raw, bleeding nerve, and he can’t control the pain anymore. After lashing out at everyone he loves, he agrees to an exile atop Quanto’s mountain to learn to control the power he wields. Desperate to end it, Kid battles with Wyatt the eldest Morning Star—hoping against hope that the man will kill him. He longs only for peace…

A gift she wants to harness…
Evelyn Lang grew up with a territorial judge for a father, and a secret—her father’s Fevered ability passed to her. When he’s killed in broad daylight in a little town in Kansas after freeing a slave, Lang is no longer bound by her father’s oath to never use her ability—now she must train it. She travels across hostile territory in search of the man who trained her father. She longs only for vengeance…

Tempestuous passions, opposing needs, and impulsive decisions divide them… 
Conflicting goals put Kid and Evelyn in direct opposition. Her hunger for justice cuts him, but Quanto refuses his requests to train alone. Forced to train together, they must confront their deepest fears if they are ever to achieve their greatest desire…. 

His pain. Her obsession. Their battle.

Adri's Review:

Raising Kane is the fifth and latest book in the Fevered Heart Series. It is also Kid Kane’s story. This is also in my opinion the most emotional book coming in just in front of Brave are the Lonely. Why? Because it is a book that really gets us into the empaths mind. 

Kid Kane has spent his most of his life silently dealing with the ability that allows him to feel what everyone around her is feeling. What their emotions are doing to them. Only problem is that he has fed his ability and taken into himself everyone’s pain for so long he no longer knows how to deal with it. So after the events that took place at the end of Buck’s story, his family strongly encourages him to go with Wyatt to the mountain. Only Quanto would be able to help him get a handle on his ability, before it completely destroys him. 

The trip is not without its problems, because of Kid’s over indulgence for so long his ability has never let him sort through his own emotions. This proves to be the biggest problem, because the power starts to turn against him and begins to cause Kid to become violently ill. 

While Kid is recouping from his trip, Evelyn Lang is watching her father, a judge, get murdered by 5 men who do not agree with the fact that he didn’t return a freed slave. Eveyln is distraught and vows to avenge her death. Her father Edward Lang was fevered and he passed his ability down to his daughter. He’d also passed down the stories of Quanto and Wyatt, the men that trained him. Knowing she wouldn’t be able to do it by herself, with no knowledge on how her ability worked, she makes the trip to Quanto’s mountain. 

The instant chemistry between the two is fantastic. When they are forced to train together you can see how it also helps them grow closer. 

It was nice to see Kid finally find the person for him. The woman who could tame him, and how he was also able to tame his own ability so it no longer is debilitating to him. 

Something else I enjoyed about this book is that we get a glimpse into how the Morning Star’s live. How life with Quanto and Wyatt is and a few more hints about the eldest and most mysterious of Quanto’s children is really like. 

As always I look forward to the next book… Which sadly isn’t out yet, but I’m crossing my fingers will be by Christmas.    

If nothing else I hope that all though these reviews haven’t been as detailed as I’m sure you all wished, they will get you interested and curious enough to want to run out and get them. Like I’ve said over and over you won’t regret it.
