A third of the world’s population wiped out in a single night and the count rising by millions every day. The human race is an endangered species. A long time ago the Fae destroyed their world and decided to take ours. History says they moved in on us between 10,000 and 6,000 B.C., but historians get a lot wrong. Jericho Barrons says they’ve been here since the dawn of time. He should know, because I’m pretty sure he has, too. For a long time there was a wall between our worlds.

Moning picks up where Shadowfever leaves off with
Iced, the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban
paranormal trilogy set in the world of the blockbuster Fever
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
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.
