#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)
Karen Marie Moning is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fever series, featuring MacKayla Lane, and the award-winning Highlander series. She has a bachelor’s degree in society and law from Purdue University.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Give Dani a chance Very important addendum: This book is pretty dark, and even though it is about a 14 year old there are explicit sexual scenes that are by no means suitable for teenage readers. I wouldn't let my teenage family members anywhere near these books.! I loved the first 5 books of the Fever series when I read them a couple of years ago. I was given Iced for Christmas in 2014 and remember starting to read it right away but not finishing. I think it was because I hadn't expected it to be written from Dani's perspective and was disappointed. So now that Feverborn has come out I realized I had to go back and read Iced and Burned before I could dive in. I picked up Iced and it was still bookmarked at Chapter Two! I'm glad I tried again because it truly is a real page-turning adventure. "One more chapter" kept me up past midnight last night. It did take me a while to warm up to Dani's immature perspective on life, but that girl is full of fight, spunk and love of justice. As Kat mentioned, she certainly is pure gold under that tough teenage exterior. I think they are right that she will grow up to be an amazing woman, so now I am in it for the long haul, watching with everyone else while that "growing up" happens. The mystery of Ryodan is also enough to keep one reading. My favourite sentence made me laugh out loud late last night, and tickled me just enough that I had to write it down in my quote journal. "All I need is a badly mangled, irate sentence stalking me". That's Dani. Read the book and you'll see what I mean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xtremely entertaining! Love Iced. Love the characters in the book. I highly recommend this book. If you like Fever series, this is way w-a-y better. Some readers might like to criticize the characters, its like finding flaw in any one/thing, 'course you can find some. What/who is flawless, BTW? Dani is dynamic, full of life, brilliantly & intensely alive. She doesn't've a 'regular' personality one might find so 'acceptable'. Unlike the female characters in so many other books, Dani is simply of a kind. Let's say, if you're a non-uptight, non-judgmental person, you'll enjoy this book. This book is fun to read. Enjoyable!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Distinctly Painful It is a common occurrence in many books, films and television that the protagonist has a scrappy-sidekick. This sidekick of course is annoying but loveable and manages to bring out the best (and the worst) of our hero. Well what happens if that scrappy sidekick all of a sudden is thrust into the spotlight and becomes the main character? Disaster. Riots in the street. Murders most foul. Book and film burning on mass Okay maybe that’s a bit of an over reaction. In truth it works really well (look at Cheers and Frasier) or it tends to become a franchise killer. Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series is no where near the best series of books that I have ever read. The characters were a little shaky and annoying, the plot was a little thin and contrived but all that being said: I finished the series. I was invested enough in the story and interested enough in finding out what happened that I followed the it to the bitter end. Or what I thought was the end. Iced is the first book in the Dani O’Malley Trilogy and the Sixth Book in the Fever Series. In this novel the previous narrator has been replaced by Dani, a fourteen year old girl with severe entitlement issues. The process of reading this book is like sitting down with a preteen and listening to them chatter at you for hours upon hours about how fantastic and amazing they are. For example our insufferable narrator refers to herself as “Mega” which of course is short for the Alpha and the Omega. Dani is immature, self-centered and by far the most FRUSTRATING character that I have ever come across. Reading this novel turned into wading through all of her useless meaningless chatter to find the actual story. If you can classify this novel as having a story. The premise: humans and fey alike are being frozen. Dani must find out why, but before she actually does she needs to dance around the plot for a good 400+ pages. You may be wondering why I actually finished reading the novel. Well, every once in a while Moning throws snatches of chapters written from the perspective of other characters. I had enough interest in them to continue reading. I haven’t decided whether I will continue on to read the next book. I have issues with how this book supports certain gender stereotypes and lack of female agency. During one scene Dani is captured by a male character and chained up in his basement. She is approached by another character (the book is vague if this scene is a hallucination from Dani’s feverish state or an actual encounter) who tells Dani that she has ruined her chance to have a man look after her. The novel stresses that 14 year old Dani needs an adult male to look after her to ensure her survival while in the same breath describes how Dani is self-sufficent and needs no one. The story makes it clear that eventually Dani must wake up and smell the flowers and become the second banana to one of the creepy hot guys who want to possess her. Moning seems to be obsessed with the “hot jerk” character archetype. The Fever World is full of them, and all of them seem to be gunning for our protagonist. This book has pedophilia written all over it. To conclude, this book lacks the like-ability of the previous Fever novels and I would NOT RECOMMEND it. That being said, if you have read the previous Fever novels I expect that you have already read (or are planning to read) this novel already. If you haven’t read the Fever novels give them a look. The Fever world is an interesting place with a fascinatingly modern take on faerie mythology. If you want a good beach read I suggest you give the first five books in the series a read. But stop there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! Great story line! The whole story tickled me, I re-read it many times just wanted to b tickled again & again. Love to laugh! ^0^ Dani is an exceptionally refreshing charater. She is remarkably unique bcuz she's not inhibited like most people r. Dani is a total wild card, that makes her such a delight...^v* Ryoden is also an awesome character, he's attacted to Dani bcuz the unpredictable and wild nature of Dani made him laughed, I think. Christian is very sweet, bright enough but not particularly intelligent. Dancer is nice, high IQ is always a cool factor. Lor is coolamando! I like him alot. Some readers responded negatively to the age difference between Ryoden & Dani. Lighten up, dudes/dudettes, Ryoden, Barrons, Lor r not even aging, therefore r ageless. As long as Ryoden not acting fatherly, I can't see any problem there. Hope Ryoden is not that rule-oriented though, Dani is enchanting bcuz she's the way she's. Let her b, accept her as she is. Barrons is OK, Fever series never captured me like Iced did. Don't like Mac much, she's not an appealing character, she reminded me of so many barflies. A very pretty barfly. LIke....a fortunate waitress became famous in Hollywood. Nothing wrong abt that. Its like...Mac became a noticable charater only bcuz of her good luck not that she's special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dani girl for the win! I will start off by saying I loved the Fever series but I never "loved" Mac. I was in it for just about everyone else but Mac. The last book of the series I could almost care about her but thats as far as I ever got. Dani I only had a passing knowledge of because the books focused solely on Mac pretty much. There weren't any side stories. In Iced you get to hear about other players in the game and that I really liked. As far as Dani is concerned yes shes a bit of an obnoxious teenager but who wasn't. The big difference between Dani and Mac is that Dani is always thinking of others when Mac was all about Mac pretty much. I couldn't get into Mac's character because of the self absorbed atitude and I did feel that she wasn't the brightest bulb in the box. I mean come on even when it was right in front of her face. Yeesh. Dani on the other hand has more on the ball at 14 than most of the older players in the book. As for as who she may end up with at the start of the book I was hoping for Ryodan but once he was "boinking" Jo, Dani's words not mine I was like Heck no yuck. I would love to see Christian come back and end up with the girl cause I am a sucker for a Highlander and Dancer I believe is going to be shown to be another part of the Unseely King. Just my opinion but I look forward to reading the rest of Dani's story and having a front row seat to her growth as a woman. All of the potential mates for Dani are aware of just how awesome she is and will be so its going to be a fantastic read. I just hope we don't have to wait too long for the next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fevers are a hard act to follow but ICED did it. Reviewed at Another Look Book Reviews Lets face it. Barrons and Mac's story is a really hard act to follow. The first 5 books in the Fever series are epic. With such big footsteps to follow, how can a 14 yr old Dani possibly conjure the pulsating action like the adventures that Mackayla Lane gave us? Well I am really pleased to say that I loved ICED. It was not epic like the first 5 books but truthfully, I was not a super huge fan of book 1, Darkfever at first either. But don't let that comment take away from the fact I still thought ICED was stellar and is deserving of my 5 star rating. If you have not read the first 5 books, don't even try ICED. You won't get the sheer magnitude of this urban fantasy series. It is not a stand alone novel. So with that understanding, if you are reading this review on my thoughts about ICED and comparing it to your own, cool! You'll understand my comments. If you haven't read ICED yet but plan to, then perhaps my thoughts will inspire you to pick it up. Some quick bullet thoughts regarding ICED characters. Christian - Nooooooo! Ryodan - You're a major dick Lor - You've grown on me and I like you a lot Dancer - You're the Sh*t! Jo - Guard your heart Kat - Don't give up Barrons - Be patient Mac - Where are you? I missed you!! Also, I know why you were telling her to put down her sword. Jayne - I used to like you but now I don't. I understand but that doesn't change how I feel. Cruce - You slippery feathered devil. I know we have not heard the last from you. And finally Dani. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about reading a story where a 14 yr old was the main protagonist but she rocked. A little repetitive with the word "Dude" and "fecking" but I know teens; once they latch onto a word, it is repetitious language. She may be all strong on the outside and as much as she is confident, she puts on a lot of bravo. She is a tough cookie. Admirable really. I wish Lor would mentor her and Ryodan would leave her alone. I also know that in a typical Karen Marie Moning fashion, it is never what you think so I will probably adore Ryodan by the end. I did get annoyed with the first person flipping between characters. I was reading away as Dani and at the start of the next chapter, the first person was Kat. I didn't like that at all. Fabulous story. Mild cliffhanger (when is that next book out?) and a great adventure. I am eager to continue on with Dani's books and I can't wait to see what happens in Dublin next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! Moning has done it again. I liked this book so much that I can't decide were to begin. At the begining I wasn't sure that I would like a book done completely from Dani's pov but only a few chapters in I was there with her in Dublin fighting Unseelie and dealing with all the frustration of being a superhuman teenager living in post-apocalyptic Dublin. I'm a huge fan of Moning and I love that there are aspects and characters from her Highlander series that are still part of her new ones, it makes me want to go back and reread all the highlander and fever books. I was so disappointed when the fever series ended but I have been appeased by this new series and the only thing I don't like is that I will have to wait for the next one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this new series! I’ve been waiting so long to read this book, and I'm happy to say that it was very much worth the wait. Nearly every moment kept me hanging on. I would like to point out that while this is an adult book, 14-year-old Dani is not sexually active. However, characters around her do have sex. I did have one problem while reading this book; I didn’t mind that sometimes the point of view changes to characters outside of Dani, but I found the POV of a character named Kat to be just filler. I ended up skipping the Kat POV's and found myself not missing too much. As a quick recap, this book is part of a series, so this review may contain spoilers. (The previous books are 'Darkfever', 'Bloodfever', 'Faefever', 'Deamfever', and 'Shadowfever,' and the 'Moon Fever' graphic novel.) The series follows the events after the wall between the Fae (fairy) world and our human world. This book takes place in the same time and location where the other five books of the Fever series takes place. This book follows the story of Dani “Mega” O’Malley story and her point of view. Dani is different from everyone. She has inhuman speed and strength, which she uses to kill Fae's. She wants her beloved Dublin to be free of the Dark Fae. Dani will even go to places where she knows she shouldn’t, as one wrong move and her life is in danger of turned over to Ryodan, who wants her to work for him. He is willing to even use force to make her work for him. The force comes in the form of holding one of her friends hostage. Dani wants to find out what, or who, is turning Dublin to ice, she doesn't have time to play his games. She's a loner, wanting to be by herself, but she also wants to save her friends. If she does work with him, you know it'll be with a handshake with her sword. Luckily, by her side are Christian and Dancer. Christian is a highlander who is slowly turning Dark Fae. Dancer her best friend, who she’s been with since After The Wall Crash. Between these three men, she’s being pulled multiple directions, her own wants pushed away. During all this, she has to deal with her old friend MacKayla Lane, who wants her dead. She will do anything to stay away from her. Dani isn’t like any normal 14-year old-girl. She’s fast, being able to move to a new location in a matter of seconds. She also has super strength, which she needs to kill Dark Fae with her sword. The sword never leaves her sight, and she can’t stand to be without it. In fact, she's in danger from every Fae in the city if she doesn’t have her sword. I love her strong personality, and how she can stand up to someone like Ryodan who most people are frighten of. Even with everything happening around her and Ryodan trying to control her she doesn’t once lose who she is. Ryodan hardly ever shows emotion, and when he does it's strange. It makes him seem normal when you know he's anything but. He also has a powerful attitude, wanting everything he sees. He's the type who will make sure he gets it. Dani is the one thing he can't get, so he resorts to blackmail. His powers scare both the Light and Dark Fae. When Dani thought there were only two weapons in the world that can kill Fae, here comes Ryodan killing a Fae without those weapons. Surprises keep happening with Ryodan around, and you wonder what other secrets he’s hiding. It surprises me that I fell in love with his character from book Five of the Fever series. He's a mean, cold individual, but I can’t help but love how he acts around Dani. There is a difference in how he treats Dani from other people. They're only small hints, which you need to read to see for yourself. In 'Shadowfever', you see how Christian was slowly beginning to change into something else. In 'Iced', you know for sure of what he’s becoming and you can’t believe it. He hates that he's becoming a Dark Fae, but the more he changes, the more he embraces the change. He’s attracted to Dani, but he won’t touch her in anyway because of how young she is. When he's with Dani, he acts like his his normal self, but once away from her, he acts more and more like a Dark Fae. He would risk his life to save Dani or someone she cares for, which may be what saves him in the end. We don’t know much about Dancer, only that he’s 17 he’s human and is Dani’s best friend. He and Dani have a deal to not worry about each other. Like Dani, he keeps different hideouts. He's always moving and setting up traps so that he knows when someone is trying to get into his hideout. He also tries to work with Dani to figure out new ways to capture and kill the Dark Fae. He even stood up to Ryodan and Christian despite being only human. Goes to show how strongly he feels for Dani. This book also makes me super glad that Karen Marie Moning put two of my favorite characters into the book, Dani and Ryodan. In book five of the Fever series, I saw a bit of a spark between those two. No romance yet, but she is only 14. Maybe when she gets older a romance will blossom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not put it down If you are a fan of Karen Marie Moning's Fae Series, you must read Iced. It is a continuation of the Fae storyline, but with Dani as the main character. I finished reading it, then read it again. Great characters, and storyline.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Feckin' Disappointing Okay, so maybe that headline is a little harsh, but after reading the stellar Fever series (the 5 book precursor series to this new series) I had high expectations. I also had a lot of trepidations. A book about Dani? No fecking way. In case you didn't get the reference (which means you haven't read the Fever series), I would recommend you DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. Instead, pick up Darkfever, the first installment of the Fever series. Trust me, you'll like it. If you did get the reference, you will understand my concern. Dani 'Mega' O'Malley is a 14 yr old sidhe seer. We first meet her in the Fever series where she is like the annoying little sister to Mac, the main character and kick-ass heroine. In the Fever series, Dani is the Jar-Jar Binks the Fever world. She quickly gets on your nerves, talks like an illiterate, is immature (she calls herself 'Mega' for Pete's sake!) and thinks she's more grown up than she really is. To put it mildly, I found her character annoying, so the thought of an entire series focused on Dani didn't exactly leave me breathless with anticipation. The other problem I had with Dani being the focus of this series is that Dani is fourteen! I couldn't help but wonder how Moning was going to pull off an adult oriented story with the same sexual tension and steamy sex when the heroine was jailbait, despite Moning's assurances this was not going to be a young adult novel. Iced basically picks up were the Fever series left off. It's 1 AWC (after the wall crashed). The so-called walls between faery and our world have come down. It's a war-zone out there and chaos reigns. Half the world's population has been killed. Fae, both Seelie and Unseelie, wander at will and humans are their prey. It's survival of the fittest while a few, like Dani, are determined to take back the world from the fae. Armed with her Fae-killing sword, Dani isn't the hunted, she's the hunter. Unfortunately for Dani, someone else has her in his sights. Ryodan (we meet him and the rest of Barrons crew in the Fever series) has taken an interest in Dani and he literally forces her to work for him, helping to solve the latest problem to hit the city of Dublin - an entity that is slowly freezing the city, killing everything in its path, fae and human alike. Iced is an good read. It's just not a great read. Luckily, Dani isn't as annoying in this book as she was in the Fever series, but there are things about this book that just don't work. The number one thing is that it just feels...wrong?...Creepy?...that two grown men seem to be interested in a fourteen year old girl. And while neither are pedophiles, it just gave me that 'no' feeling. It weirded me out to read how both Ryodan and Christian, while maybe not attracted to the fourteen year old, are attracted to the 'woman she will become'. Like these two grown men are watching over this child, each basically thinkg they can groom her until she is old enough to have sex with. Can you say 'ewwww!' So there is really none of the fantastic sexual tension from the Fever series (which again, I can't emphasize enough, would just be wrong anyway because DANI IS FOURTEEN. Have I said that enough times yet?). Sure there is some sex, but it totally lacks any steam because it is between secondary characters that you barely know enough to feel any connection to them. The other thing I didn't like about the book is that it seems like Moning has gone out of her way to make everything so mysterious. Why is Ryodan so interested in Dani? At least with Christian, we learn that he is attracted to her spark and vitality. Ryodan continues to be an enigma. And what's up with Dancer? We hear about him at the end of the Fever series but now we finally meet him. But just who the heck is he? Only four years older than Dani, Dancer has taken Dani under his wing like a kid sister, acting cool with her – giving her space, not bossing her around, taking care of her without her being aware of it. BUt there’s more to Dancer than meets the eye and I'm sure he's hiding some deep, dark secret about his true identity. Then there were the elusive 'Mac sightings'. At the end of the Fever series, Dani is under the impression that Mac wants her dead (even though it's not true because Mac has reconciled what Rowen made Dani do) and so Moning throws a few near misses between Dani and Mac with Dani going out of her way to avoid Mac and Mac doing who knows what? Moning never explains and Mac is relegated to a plot device. Barrons also makes an appearance, really more of a walk-on, but at least he gets a speaking role. If I were him though, I'd talk to my agent. Despite everything, Moning pulls together an entertaining story and sets us up for more. Hopefully the next installment will happen four or five years in the future (in the Iced world, not ours, I don't want to wait that long) so that Dani is at least no longer the poster girl for pedophiles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The fiery Dani O'Malley faces a bone chilling situation in this epic new series! When I met Dani in the Fever books, I really hated her. She's cocky and irritating (I actually skimmed her sections of Shadowfever because I couldn't stand her dialogue), but admittedly she could kick some serious ass. So when I found out Moning was going to base her next series on her I was a bit apprehensive about if I was going to like it or not, and how she'd slip in her trademark sex scenes with someone so young in the picture. But I shouldn't have doubted Moning, she made me rethink my attitude towards Dani while I followed her on a death defying Snickers fueled adventure with some of the most badass guys ever to figure out what's icing over Dublin. Oh and this is important: this is NOT A YOUNG ADULT BOOK! I see the argument that yes we are following the point of view of a 14 year old, and yes at times it gets creepy with so much male testosterone aimed at her - but it's handled with tact and care. But the defining point here is that the story is told from OTHER POINTS OF VIEW too, ADULT POINTS OF VIEW, where they can have all the sex they want and there's some definite R-rated violence; so CHILL OUT PEOPLE. Plus - realistically, what kind of teenager isn't sexually curious at 14, it doesn't mean that they're going to go for it and that's made very clear by Dani. Oh Dani - she's on her own in a ruined city with super powers to boot. She's had to grow up fast and has taken it upon herself to look after the helpless and fight the fae to survive another day. What Moning is infamous for is her dichotomous characters. They're like two different people crammed into one, and struggling with each other until the situations morph and change the person and one comes out on top. This couldn't be truer with Dani. On one hand she's still a child, she wants to have fun and be frivolous, use swear words and be a smart ass while whining and complaining to the old people in her life. But on the other hand there's these clear and shocking moments where her dialogue completely matures, and she's profound and has epiphanies that are just incredible to watch unfold. It's this version of Dani that I absolutely love - and even the other characters point out that when she grows up she's going to be a hell of a woman. Let's just hope that Moning can get us there a wee bit faster. Ryodan has completely replaced my love of Barrons from Fever. He's this awesome combination of lethal animal fury and hilarious deadpan snark in a domineering package. After reading some scenes with him, I literally couldn't wipe the satisfied smirk off my face. He wants to protect Dani - in any means necessary and there's moments of pure trust and some philosophical debate between these two that shows a different level to their relationship. Ultimately, I think it's going to be Ryodan that's going to make Dani be more mature. Christian - the Highlander slowly turning Unseelie Prince is struggling and it's heartbreaking to watch. There's moments where you can see the good ole sweetheart Christian peeking through, but he's quickly overrun by this dark and sexually fueled Prince. I want to keep thinking that Christian is under there, but it's getting harder and harder to find him through all those Unseelie tattoos. Dancer - we find out about him in passing in Shadowfever, and I was really suspicious of who this mere mortal was in this lethal world. But he's a fecking genius, funny and just what Dani needs (he's also closer to her age at 17) to stay sane. But my spidey senses are tingling and I'm positive there's something off about him and I cannot wait to find out what! I'm pretty sure Moning might be hinting at a love square (?) in here - but each one makes it abundantly clear that she's still a child, and they will WAIT. Even Dani seems like she's still in the boys are icky phase, and she's pretty oblivious to any innuendo and attention. The sex scenes are pretty light (for now), most of the scenes consist of Dani walking in on adults and having that "OH CRAP SORRY AWKWARD" moment or they take place in vague dream haze. This whole story worked like a Scooby Gang/ Sherlock Holmes mystery - going from one gorgeously illustrated iced scene to another, Ryodan and Dani collect evidence, observe and deduce to figure out who or what is rapidly turning Dublin into an arctic playground. This plot was magnificently written out, given the clues it wasn't until moments before the actual reveal that the pieces clicked for me. Moning still brings the blood spraying action, and the hauntingly clear descriptions of new Unseelie fae with her incredible knack for engaging character interactions. If you're a fan of her Fever series, this is definitely one to read - if that's not incentive enough there's some guest appearances from everyone's favorite alpha male!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read Iced is an ADULT novel about 14 year old Dani O'Malley and the adults that surround her. Dani battles with and against the light and dark fae, adults and, of course, Ryodan, her boss. Give yourself a block of time to read because it's hard to put down and walk away.

“Moning returns to the heady world of her Fever series, and the results are addictive and consistently surprising. . . .

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 . . .

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)   “Moning has taken a beloved series and made it better. . . . [She] has a way of bringing the reader into the story with her imaginative writing style and characters that are colorful and entertaining. . . . Please give Iced a try, you will become a Dani fan just like I did.”—Night Owl Romance (top pick)   “An exciting opening of a new Fever saga . . . Readers will enjoy that the prime Fever cast plays major roles and the introduction of two new unique dangerous Fae who widen the mythos.”—Genre Go Round Reviews   “[Moning] has always managed to give me everything I want in a book. . . . Iced will not disappoint.”—Open Book Society   “We get edge of your seat action and danger. We get the promise of so much more to come. All in all, this is an excellent start to Dani’s trilogy.”—Scandalicious Book Reviews   “Of course, I ended up loving this book. Just like I love everything [Moning] writes.”—Fiction Vixen
