‘Fever’ – The Next ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Twilight’?

The Harry Potter films is done. The Twilight Saga is ending next. Is "Fever" the next novel-series-turned-movie-franchise to break box-office records in the future?

So what the heck is “Fever”?

“Fever” is a 5-book fantasy novel by Karen Marie Moning. Just like the 7-part Harry Potter series by Rowling and the 4-part Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, the “Fever” books are also New York Times bestsellers and they are also aimed for the young adults market.

DreamWorks recently acquired the “Fever” series and they are hoping that it will become their own hit fantasy franchise as “Harry Potter” is to Warner Bros. and “Twilight” is to Summit Entertainment. The titles of the 5 books (in order) are: Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, Dreamfever and Shadowfever. Dreamworks will first adapt to motion picture the first part of the series, “Darkfever.”

Darkfever follows MacKayla Lane, an ordinary young woman from Georgia who travels to Ireland to track down her sister’s killer. While overseas, she discovers an extraordinary world filled with ancient secrets, vampires and other tough-to-kill creatures. The protagonist, who has special abilities, is tasked with finding the Sinsar Dubh, a powerful yet elusive book that can help her save both the fantasy realm and the mortal world.

Do you think “Fever” will become a monster hit?
