Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie 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 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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Bestselling author Karen Marie Moning returns to the world of Fever in this new urban paranormal trilogy launch. She does not begin timidly, plopping main protagonist Dani "Mega" O'Malley into Dublin streets overrun with Dark Fae invaders. Mercifully, this plucky teen sidhe seer possesses the power to survive even in murderously adverse situations. (P.S. This perfect entry point features popular characters from the Fever series including Christian MacKeltar, Ryodan, Mac, and Barrons.)

Kirkus Reviews
When the ancient Fae of Irish legend break down the walls between their world and ours, a 14-year-old girl creates an odd alliance of monsters and men to save humanity and her beloved city of Dublin. Dani "Mega" O'Malley isn't your typical teenager, a fact most humans of the post-apocalyptic AWC (After the Wall Crash) world would be grateful for if they knew how dedicated she is to fighting the Dark Fae, the creatures who destroyed their world and are taking over the human realm. And if the usual shadowy figures who roam the Earth aren't enough, now some devilish creature is flash-freezing masses of people, leaving no clues as to why or how. Dani is only 14, but her beauty, mad survival and fighting skills, and zest for life have attracted the notice of some enigmatic, powerful alpha males. Dani is always skirting danger, but entering her teen years, her edgy lifestyle becomes even more complicated when her spiking hormones wreak havoc on her emotional equilibrium—really bad timing, since she needs her wits about her more than ever as she juggles an enigmatic nightclub owner, an infatuated half-blood Fae prince and her boy-genius best friend, while tracking down this new, dangerous villain who threatens to destroy what's left of Dublin. Then there's her ex–best friend, who wants to kill her, and the police chief who's determined to take her most potent weapon, and a thousand other things that can slay a girl if she lets her guard down for even a second. The newest addition to the popular urban fantasy series Fever and the first of a planned trilogy with Dani O'Malley as the main character, this is 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. Dani is young here, and we see the road being paved for increased emotional and sexual conflict later in the series. Fast-paced, with nonstop action set in a fascinating urban fantasy world of Dublin under siege, this is a smart, bold and textured success.
From the Publisher
“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

“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
Library Journal
Listen up: here's a new urban paranormal trilogy from Moning, author of the five blisteringly successful "Fever" titles, each bigger than the last (Shadowfever debuted in the top spot on the New York Times best sellers list). Fortunately, this new trilogy returns to the world of the "Fever" books, picking up where Shadowfever left off. At its heart is charismatic teen sidhe seer Dani O'Malley, charged with capturing a slippery, murderous new Fae even as dark forces threaten to take over Dublin. Lots of promotion for this, from a new app to a big launch party thrown by the author herself in New Orleans on October 29–30.

PROLOGUE
Dublin, you had me at “Hello”

Imagine a world that doesn’t know its own rules. No cell phones. No Internet. No stock market. No money. No legal system. 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. With the exception of a few cracks, it was a solid barricade, especially the prison that held the Unseelie.

That barricade is gone now and the prison walls are dust.

All of the Fae are free: the deadly Dark Court and the imperious Light Court, who are every bit as deadly, just prettier. A Fae is a Fae. Never trust one. We’re being hunted by voracious monsters that are nearly impossible to kill. Their favorite food? People.

As if that’s not bad enough, there are fragments of Faery reality drifting around that swallow up anything in their path. They’re tricky to spot; you can drive right into one, if you’re not careful. The night the walls fell, Faery itself was fractured. Some say even the inimical Hall of All Days was changed, and opened new portals onto our world. The drifting is the part that really gets me. You can go to sleep in your own bed and wake up in a completely different reality. If you’re lucky, the climate won’t kill you instantly and the inhabitants won’t eat you. If you’re really really lucky, you’ll find your way home. Eventually. If you’re superlucky, time will pass at a normal rate while you’re gone. Nobody’s that lucky. Folks vanish all the time. They just disappear and are never seen again.

Then there are the amorphous Shades that lurk in the dark and consume every living thing in their path, right down to the nutrients in the soil. When they’re done, all that’s left is dirt that an earthworm couldn’t live in—not that they leave those either. It’s a minefield outside that door. Walk lightly. Your parents’ rules don’t apply. Do be afraid of the dark. And if you’re thinking there might be a monster under your bed or in your closet, there probably is. Get up and check.
Welcome to Planet Earth.

This is our world now—one that doesn’t know its own rules. And when you’ve got a world that doesn’t know its own rules, everything dark and nasty that was once held in check comes slithering out of the cracks to try to take a shot at whatever it wants. It’s a free-for-all. We’re back to being cavemen. Might is right. Possession is nine-tenths of the law. The bigger and badder you are, the better your odds of surviving. Get a gun or learn to run. Fast. Preferably both.

Welcome to Dublin, AWC—After the Wall Crash—where we’re all fighting for possession of what’s left of the planet.

The Fae have no king, no queen, no one in charge. Two psychotic, immortal Unseelie princes battle for dominion over both races. Humans have no government. Even if we did, I doubt we’d listen to them. It’s complete chaos.

I’m Dani “Mega” O’Malley.

I’m fourteen. The year was just officially declared 1 AWC, and the streets of Dublin are my home. It’s a war zone out there. No two days are alike.

And there’s no place else I’d rather be.

    Loved the Book, Just Not the Heroine's Age

    First off, I'm giving this book Five stars because I thought it was a fantastic addition to the Fever World books. Iced picks up soon after Shadowfever ends, and it re-introduces Dani Mega O'Malley, the pint-sized girl with the super-sized abilities who was Mac's sidekick in the first five books. Iced is told from Dani's point of view with occasional parts told from Kat's pov and one fascinating brief section told from Christian's. For fans of Mac and Barrons, they're really just on the periphery, but it's the same Dublin as before. And Dani's in her element. With the Sword of Light and her freeze-framing speed, she's practically untouchable as she carves a swathe through the Unseelie hordes that have descended on her city. Enter Ryodan who wants Dani on his payroll, and he's not asking. He's telling. There's also Christian MacKeltar who's morphing into an Unseelie Prince but who watches over her. Here's where my issue lies... she's 14 years old. They're adult men who have somehow staked a claim on her, and it's just weird enough, just creepy enough that it kind of messed with my enjoyment of the book. Even though Dani is old beyond her years, she's still a child. The fact that the sexual innuendoes go over her head, and she's bemused by the sexual tension that frequently swirls around her is evidence of how young she is. Grown men have no business sexualizing her, and that's exactly what happens in this book. Don't get me wrong, I love Ryodan and Christian. Both of them are fascinating, complex men. Ryodan is similar to Barrons but not a replica, and Christian is grappling with holding onto some part of his humanity in the wake of becoming Unseelie. But they're too old for Dani right now, and that's huge problem for me. I imagine the author has a plan to handle the age issue, and I'm really hoping it happens in the next book because if I want to read about 14 year olds, I'd be browsing the YA section.

    Hurry up and grow Dani...

    The plot is filled with action and adventure, loved seeing Barrons and Mac. Dani is fealess! Giving the book 4 stars. Overall I enjoyed it but surprised that I ended up hating charcters that I loved in past books (you know who you are). Dani's narration got on my nerves, the "dude" and "feck"get old after the first few chapters. Scenes with grown men admiring or getting to close were cringeworthy. Dani needs to grow up, fast.

    Torture!

    It is torture reading these books. The whole time I'm reading I am also savoring every word. I know the book will come to an end and I'll most likely be waiting a year for the next piece. I'm always dreading reaching the end...but loving every minute of it.

    This book was AWESOME!! I have read all the books in the Fever Series and I was super excited when this book came out. It is a little weird that Dani is only 14 years old and has 2 adult men obessed with her. After reading this book I really have to say that I don't think that Ryodan is interested in her sexually. I am starting to think that he might be her father. Is there anyone else who is thinking this? I can't wait to see what happens!

    Worth the Wait and more

    If you liked Mac and Barrons, you'll love Dani, Ryodan, Christian, Dancer, and the rest. In fact, I loved them more. The plot is fantastic and you can truly understand everyone's perspective. Utterly thrilled to read the next in Dani's series.She's growing up fast and the world keeps changing. Which man will win her heart? The mysterious Ryodan? The scary but entrancing Christian? Or the brilliant Dancer?

    ICED is first book in the Dani O'Malley series which is branched off series from the Fever series. Though from my understanding, it will need to be read to continue the Fever series.




    Anywho...




    Ummmm, HELLO!?! Who doesn't just love this book!? Seriously, this was a fantastic read.




    Everyone was all up-in-arms because Dani is only a teenager and we get some obvious vibes from some hotties that they are so interested in the woman she's gonna become!




    But hey, seriously, this WOW'd my expectations.




    I also can't wait to learn more about Ryodan and even more about his role in Dani's life! So many speculations...so many hints....but I just say we need to wait for the books to come out!




    Dani and livin large out on her "own". Though she's been recruited to help Ry-O with finding the reason for sections of Dublin being iced over and killing all living things inside it.




    Tempers ride, hormones rage, feelings are swept up left and right! ICED seriously has it all. No let down from this serious Fever series fan!
    BTW, people need to remember this is a work of fiction...Stop dwelling on the content of sexuality and just enjoy the story for what it's worth.  I am so looking forward to BURNED.

    A Fantabulous Addition to the Fever Series!!! :D My

    A Fantabulous Addition to the Fever Series!!! :D

    My expectations for Karen Marie Moning’s Iced were high - to say the least. It was, as Dani would put it, fecking-A perfect! The engaging storyline, the surprising characters and just the right, teasing, sprinkle of romance were more than enough to keep me glued to the pages. Ms. Moning definitely went above and beyond my expectations – and I have no doubt that she’ll continue to wow me with her work. 

    I’ll admit I was a little apprehensive about the story being told from a 14 year old’s POV and whether it would fall into the young adult area – but my worries were for naught. Ms. Moning brilliantly incorporated Dani into this series as the protagonist and in no way diminished the quality or execution of the storyline. In fact, KMM’s descriptive writing and magical world building makes the Fever world feel like an alternate reality. Not to mention, the action-packed plot will have you freeze-framing right alongside Dani in order to figure out the mystery of all the ice. In simple words, KMM’s Dublin is impossible to resist.

    I’ve always enjoyed Dani as a character and despite my worry of her being the protagonist, I came to truly like her in Iced. Dani “Mega” O’Malley is fun, entertaining and full of great surprises and potential. Moning did a great job in bringing to light, how much Dani isn’t a 14 year old girl. From a young age, Dani has learned of the harsh realities of a cruel world and After the Wall Crash, she has nothing but adult responsibilities – looking after the Sidhe-Seers, working for Ryodan and protecting the humans from the unseelie. Yes, she is naive when it comes to men or sex but mature in more ways than one. She’s strong, bold and has a witty sense. It’s all a part of her charm. She has potential and watching her grow into a woman will be very exciting. I adored her and can’t wait to see more of her.

    There has been much talk of how perverted the romance in this book is but we have to keep in mind, that this is a set-up for what’s to come in later books. We don’t know how the romance will turn out, so an open mind is the only option at this point. No matter how weird the interactions between Ryodan, Christian and Dani maybe, everything in this book has potential. I have no idea how it will turn out, but I trust KMM has a brilliant plan up her sleeve.

    We have three men vying for Dani’s attention – Ryodan, Christian and Dancer. Ryodan is as mysterious as Barrons and I love his macho demeanor and I think he would make an interesting love interest for Dani. Christian is creepy but oddly charming. I find his sense of humour enjoyable. I’m not sure he’ll get Dani, but I’m curious to see how it will turn out. I love Dancer's character. He’s the closest to Dani – in age and otherwise. I loved his role as the best friend but he remains a mystery. We don’t know any deets about him, other than he was a student, so I want to learn more. Personally, I’m a Ryodan girl, but the romance in this book is very unpredictable and I’m excited to see where Moning takes this. 

    Iced was captivating. The ending is a cliffhanger but it only builds your anticipation for the sequel. Full of action, mystery and likeable characters, it will hook you from word one. My only issue with it was the absence of Mac and Barrons, but I'm sure we'll see more of them in later books. A great addition to the Fever series, Iced did not disappoint. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

    Amazing!! captivating!!

    Kmm has done it again. Iced was a rollercoaster and held me completely entralled. I love kmm writing, she is my absolute favorite author. Her mind is so utterly brillant, because regardless of whether you are reading a Fever series book or the Highlander series books, nothing is predictible and she keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish!!

    As far as concerns that Iced was a young adult novel, there is no way. Yes, its very sexual, but not in a graphic way like erotica would be written. Dani is 14 but has lived more then most 30 years olds in many respects. I love the way she is absolutely oblivious to all the sexual comments made by Christian and Ryodan and yet has a brillant head on her shoulders for survival. Her story had me cracking up and I loath the wait for her next book. Regardless, I will preorder it as far in advance as possible because I have no doubt that it will be worth it.

    Awesome read

    This book takes you back to the scene of the Fever series, but now it is Dani's tale. She is fascinating and full of life. I thought her love of life itself, even under the most dire of circumstances refreshing. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I did find it disturbing that grown men were claiming her in anticipation for the woman she will become. I would have wished the author would have skipped forward a couple of years.

    Brilliant! First off let me tell you right now that this is my absolute favorite book of all time! Karen Moning's uncanny accuracy in portraying a fifteen year old girl is truly astounding. Recently being 14 last year I can completely understand all that Dani Mega O'Mally was going through . . . well except the whole 'Unseelie trying to take over thing'.
    I know a tremendous amount of people are ~ to lightly put it~ 'concerned' with the age of our young heroine. This is what I got out of it, so Dani is old enough to KILL Unseelie (and occasionally people) but not old enough to have sex? Well either kids are lying better nowadays, or parents are just more naïve about their teen kids thought process. My question to you is "when do teens usually lose their virginity"? answer: 7th~12th grade, and I'm sorry to have to say this but Dani is right in that range. On another note having read all the other fever books I proclaim this the best! I've always wanted Karen to do a book from Dani's point of view because, she was the one with all the powers. I was not disappointed in the least!!! This is a truly brilliant book and I can't wait for the next one!

    This book dragged, and each scene read like a repeat of the one

    This book dragged, and each scene read like a repeat of the one before. If Dani would show some compassion for anyone it might put an interesting twist to this series. Also Dani should be older---way too young for all these old characters hitting on her sexually. Made my skin crawl. In the first five books, Mac and Barron had that chemistry (love/hate), that made you want to read more. Dani doesn't compare to Mac. Frankly, I liked Christian's characterization better than Dani's. I wanted more about him. There is a mystery about him. But I love Karen's writing style, and I will keep buying and reading her books.

    wish i hadnt read it so fast

    As always, kmm has delivered. This story is captivating, entertaining and laugh out loud funny. For me it was a bitter sweet read because i know ill have to wait another year for the continuation, but boy is this story ever worth the wait. A must read for fans and a great read for newbies. Welcome to dublin, and watch your step.

    Complete disappointment.

    This book can't be compared to the fever series. Dani is an annoying little girl that believes she's a superhero (aka Mega). Also a little creepy with older men acting like they're sexually attracted to a 14 year old. I couldn't even finish it. If I had to read how awesome Dani thought she was one more time, I would have thrown my nook out the window. I loved the fever series, but this book is irritating at best.

    The world you fell in love with

    This is such a great spin off. Yes, i was sad that Macs story ended, but it's still a part of that world. Now for everyone freaking out about chemistry between Danni and Riordan and others, i happen to think that he knows that she is his soul mate and he can probably see the woman she will become. Dani isn't ready yet, but it's obvious that as the book continues onward, that Dani will grow into a powerful woman, and have her fair share of suitors. So relax. This isn't real life, it's a book, set in a world of magic and mayhem and nothing is innocent, except for Dani. That's why everyone I'd drawn to her. So all you old broads getting your panties in a twist, Don't.. I love that we get to watch Dani grow up into her own woman. Don't pass this series up because you think it's a going adult book, because its not. You will love it. If not, don't read it. Simple. I can't wait for the next book.

    Disappointing on so many levels. I've read all of the Highlander

    Disappointing on so many levels. I've read all of the Highlander Series and Fever Series books and loved Moning's technique but with Iced I feel she was way off the mark. I honestly do not understand her reasoning in not at the very least aging Dani a few years, and making her more mature so she wasn't grating on my nerves all the time. Also, aging her would have me appreciate the odd advances of the men in her lives without giving me a creep factor. That being said I also hated Mac for the majority of the Fever Series but at least Barrons kept me wanting more.I was hoping the men would keep me going like Barrons did in the Fever Series, but I just couldn't get enthralled with Dani being the POV. Since this is her second heroine character I can now honestly say IMHO that Moning is just not well with creating a heroine character that doesn't rate high on my "Annoy Me Meter".

    Bloody awful. No plot. No Nothing. 200 pages in I quit. The sexual innuendo, if you can call it that, contributed NOTHING to the story. Maybe that's why it was added. There is no story. Hugely disappointed. I want my money back.

    Another hit by one of my favorite authors. I felt hesitant purchasing this due to the teenage narration, and I'm glad to say I was not disappointed. It was very entertaining. As far as the adult men and teenage girl relationships go, I think Christian summed it up best when he states a woman like that comes once in a lifetime; thus, to those that live forever, no matter how disturbing it may seem, they have to "call dibbs". Her egotism, innocence and naivety show through perfectly. Hah, I can't wait to see what kind of woman she becomes, either. All characters stayed true to their identities and were very unique. Loved the cliffhanger. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
