Review: Iced by Karen Marie Moning

Iced by Karen Marie Moning
Series: Dani O'Malley #1 (Fever #6)
Genre: Fantasy
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.
My thoughts:

First and foremost, what the ever loving freck? That was some serious mind fuck right there!!!!!!!

Now that excessive exclamation marks are out of the way, I am a Fever fan. Through it's high and low and no matter how much I wanted to throw the previous book(s) in the gutter I am a fan. So yes when I saw the book continuous, not with Mac and Barrons but with Dani, Ryodan and Christian I was ecstatic. You can count on KMM to bring on more of the Fever world, what I didn't thought was Dani being fourteen. Well I am okay she is fourteen, lots of people in the world are fourteen, my youngest is fourteen so yeah completely fine. Dani kicking ass being the teenage superhero she thinks she is. Great stuff. 

Dani surrounded by two pedophiles perverts grown men who fancies her and make her their future whatever, okay I am still on board dude not jumping off the ship yet because of Dani of course. 

Dani constantly puts things in prospective for me by pointing out how anciently old both dudes are. So yes lets say this KMM sure knows how to rile up the fans with her stories. 

Ryodan, you used to be so cool. Christian, you too baby, you and your-dick-of-death is no cool no more. Jo, there shall always be groupies. Kat, meh. Dani, you are totally the shit and Dancer, NERDY GLASSES WEARING TALL GUY WITH SUPERBRAIN AND HOTNESS AND HOW IS THERE NOT MORE OF YOU? 

So yeah the story might have pedophile perverted thoughts inappropriate thoughts among the too sexy dudes but if you are a fan of Karen Marie Morning's writing and the fever series give this a go but I highly recommend that you wait till all three books come out before starting on them.  

I give this

Book Cover: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Look at the pretty cover. GIMME GIMME! WANT!

The final book in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Gallactica and Prometheus!

Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind. They're ready to start life afresh--to build a home--on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.

But this new Earth isn't the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed's former passengers aren't alone on this planet. And if they're going to stay, they'll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who--or what--else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been for nothing.
