Overview

#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.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Karen Marie Moning's Burned.

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)

Editorial Reviews

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.

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.
