Book Description

30 Oct 2012 Dani O'Malley
#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning picks up where Shadowfever leaves off with Iced, the sixth book in her blockbuster Fever series.
 
The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.
 
Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.
 
Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.
 
When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.
 
Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.

Praise for Iced
 
“Moning returns to the heady world of her Fever series, and the results are addictive and consistently surprising. . . . The best elements of Moning’s sensual, shadowy epic are still here, from the sensual and enigmatic Fae to the super-alpha heroes and the breathless pace of their escalating conflicts. At its heart is a heroine whose development is likely to become the stuff of legends as this unforgettable, haunting series continues to evolve.”RT Book Reviews
 
“This is one of my favorite 2012 reads . . . It’s engaging, hilarious, amazing and Dani is going to be one heck of a woman.”USA Today
 
“A gripping story that combines excellent storytelling with believable characters that are rendered both superhuman and superbly human, with emotional fragility and psychological vulnerability in an unstable world fraught with danger . . . Fast-paced, with nonstop action set in a fascinating urban fantasy world of Dublin under siege, this is a smart, bold and textured success.”Kirkus Reviews
 
“Moning is a master storyteller. I don’t know how she does it, but she begs me to get on my knees and pay worship to the woman who has brought me the best, most labyrinthine stories and characters I’ve ever had the privilege to get to know. She weaves brilliantly, unapologetically, and without exception, and she has threaded the needle into me and I’ve been pulled, over and over, into her tapestry, and I don’t think I’m ever getting out. Iced is no exception.”The Bawdy Book Blog (five-starred review)

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable enough *mild spoilers* 30 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover
Firstly, I just want to say that KMM is my favourite author and I absolutely adore the Fever series so my review takes into account the standard of the previous books.

Overall this was an okay installment in an outstanding series. My expectations were not high, I didn't really like Dani but I trusted Karen to make it work - she had never written a book I hadn't enjoyed. I enjoyed Iced, but it really wasn't a patch on the previous books.

I don't want to spoil the story, so I'll just say what I liked and disliked. I liked the return to Dublin and the rich world KMM has created, as usual KMM's descriptions of anything fae were exquisite, dark and haunting (references to unseelie princes 'chiming' makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up) and the best parts of the book, for me, involved Christian and his transition.

As for dislikes... there were a few. The main one was Dani. She still irritates me and the story felt 'dumbed down' for having a fourteen year old protagonist. I was dubious about this going in, the idea of it didn't appeal because in all honesty as a grown woman I don't find fourteen year olds very interesting. However, I trusted KMM to pull a rabbit out of the hat... but I don't feel that she did. All the 'fecks' and 'dudes' were as annoying a presence as ever. The idea that Ryodan and Christian would be even remotely interested in her or the woman she would become just seemed unexplainable. I was at a complete loss to account for Christian's sudden infatuation.

Another dislike was, well, every other female character in the book. The other sidhe seers were just so two dimensional, weak and insipid that I had to stop myself skimmimg past their parts and force myself to concentrate repeatedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grrrrreat! 22 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I loved this book and gave it 5 stars because as always with KMM I couldn't put it down and read it in 2 days! I was disappointed it when it was finished and I realised I had to wait a long time for the next one.
There's always a cliffhanger ending and you're left going "noooooooooo, why must I wait?"
I don't like the Dani O'Malley character, she really rubs me up the wrong way. Being such an arrogant teenager playing with all the "big boys" but by the end of the book you kind of undertstand her better, see where she's coming from and realise most of the arrogance is a shell to protect her from this horrible apocalyptic-style world she now lives in and has to deal with all the bid scary Fae roaming around.
Because she has all these special abilities she also feels responsible for the world and feels like she has to help in any way she can, no matter what the "big boys" say. Girl power, you know.
If you hated the Dani O'Malley character in the Fever series, don't turn away from this book. Give it a chance, its soo worth it.
Also it lets you see what happens next after the walls between our world and Fae have fallen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. 12 Jan 2013
By ARaine
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
(Did anyone else who ordered from Amazon have a problem with the pages? Mine are all uneven and I even got a replacement and it looks exactly the same. Did anyone else have this problem?)

Review: Loved this just as much as I expected. It wasn't as brilliant as the Fever series, but this is only the first book and I have high expectations for the next one. People who are obsessed with Dani's age and whether the book is too sexual need to get over themselves. It's expertly written and KMM knew exactly what she was doing. If you're not interested in it, don't read it. Simple. Ditto to people who thought Dani's voice was too 'young and immature.' Either you're way too old or you just don't remember what it's like to be young. Either way, don't trash the book for stupid reasons. I loved this. All in all, well worth waiting for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great book 27 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover
Only BIG criticism that I have, is that the main character Dani, is Irish, Dublin born, no way would she be talking about, diapers (nappies) shopping carts (trollies) hot Flashes (Flushes) candy bars (chocolate) soda (pop) Consignment shops (Charity?)etc., can't get into thinking of her as being Irish, but American. LOTS of American terminology, which can be very annoying when reading about Dublin/Ireland! Other than that, it's a really great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars New genre for the author, but it works 23 April 2013
Format:MP3 CD|Verified Purchase
Writing a hurt teenage character is a challenge, but somehow it works for the author. The story is apocalyptic fantasy and that is not a feel-good genre, but there is humour and the writing draws you in, certainly well enough to allow you to look forward to the next volume.
Warning: while this is a standalone story, I have my doubts how well this works for people who have not read the Fever series, from which it is spun off.

1.0 out of 5 stars It just doesn't stack up :-( 11 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover
I love Karin Marie Moning's Fever Series and when I read that there would be a Dani spin off series I was ecstatic about finding out what happened with Mac & Barons. Dani always featured in the Fever series and she always came across as a typical inquisitive hyperactive teenager with an added bonus: she has a superpower which includes freeze framing, supersight, superhearing and she is a kickass Fae slayer.
I'm sad to report that I'm very discombobulated about this book. Yes, that's a word that featured many, many times throughout the book. It seemed like Ms Moning has looked up obscure words and forced them to fit into her book. I found it very annoying and her writing style has deteriorated to the extent of bring poor.

"Horniness slams into me, and I hear myself making such an embarrassing sound I could die of embarrassment."
Excerpt From: Karen Marie Moning. "Fever Series Book 6 Iced."

Although Dani is portrayed as a 14 year old I felt very uncomfortable with the erotic and sometimes pornographic aspects of the book. I would have found it more believable if Dani was slightly older. On the positive side, Ryodan's character has developed so many new facets as he was generally quite one dimensional in the Fever Series. It would be interesting to read more about him, but that my aversion to poor writing and inappropriate character behaviour (Dani's age and the eroticism) would not trump my curiosity. It's a shame, actually.
