Iced by Karen Marie Moning

Fever, Book 6

Synopsis: 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.

Review: I have long seen a lot of different reviews for this novel and it’s true that while I loved the first series, my interest quickly fell down to the view of the critics. I’m not saying that it’s a bad one but many were more than mixed. Someone gave me Burned and the reviews seemed better but before that I needed to read Iced.

As you can imagine, we do not follow Mac this time but Dani, a character we discovered previously. I thought we would see Mac a little more in the story but it is ultimately not the case. But back to our dear Dani as she will face many problems by herself. Indeed, Ryoadan is determined to hire her even if she doesn’t want to, and Christian wants her for more than a friendly relationship and everyone covets her weapon while the city begins to sink into the cold.

It was interesting to immerse myself in the world of KMM and to follow a different character and therefore a different perspective. I admit that my problem was about the attitude of Dani and the unhealthy side that we find by reading the novel. Everyone seems interested in sleeping with her and we could sometimes ignore it if she did not kept saying that she was only 14 years old. I admit that it was a bit disturbing.

So it was a nice story but I would have liked to be carried as for the other novels. However, I am curious to read more after such a purpose!
