Say something about yourself!
natalie ross's voice and phil gigante sound so good together i have followed them through other stores and just enjoy them.
The whole story was great but love the clift hanger at the end
the book is our vision with your own voice, Phil and Natalie are like 3d in your head with glasses on :)
Christian gave his life to the crimson hag.. but ...im sure he is not dead... well i hope not
I LOVE what most consider Young Adult fiction, but I would call it closer to Mature Young Adult. For example, sparkly vampires...not my thing. My favorite Author so far is Karen Marie Moning but I also have favorite books like A Game of Thrones which is EPIC!
The narrators are FECKING AWESOME!!! I just joined Audible, so I haven't heard a TON of narrators yet, but the combination of Gigante and Palmer was wonderful! I loved how Palmer had a different cadence for each character so you always knew who she was and Gigante....well he just has a sexy voice ;-)
Dani was awesome because she is so multi-faceted! I have read ALL the Fever Series (you should read those too) and Moning is amazing at creating characters that grow. Unlike other series I've read (...Twilight) these characters all have strong personalities and you get swept up by who they are! Truly great character writing. I just wish Dani was 18 so I would have to have the few "ew...she's 14" moments that I did have in the book, however with that said, I didn't feel totally creeped out by them thinking she was young and hot. It's honestly almost ok, because they all realize she is still only 14 years old.
I laughed out loud a few times throughout the book. Dani is hilarious and her along with Ryodan...well...it's kind of funny...really.
Read this book and everything Moning. I haven't been disappointed yet! And if you've read the Fever Series, READ THIS. I know you're still in love with Mac and Barrons, but this story is so interesting and the characters so intriguing that you will add Dani and Ryodan (maybe) to your next top couple list.
I found myself yelling at the book, "No, don't do it!"
Very entertaining...takes a while to fall into the rhythm tho.
I have read her other series, but found this book hard to stay with. My attention kept drifting. It's not bad, just so-so.
I listened so how can I compare the read?
I LOVED this series and was overjoyed to see this new book... a good job referencing earlier books without being redundant or boring. A great story with tons of openings for continuing, perhaps a fww too many, but so what? C'mon, I want the next one now! !
The same way as always. ...
I want the next book!!!
I enjoyed the narrator's accent, the pacing, and the distinct character voices.
Dani O'Malley because she has begun to mature since the Fever series and is becoming more complex while maintaining her wit.
I wish I could have, but I had to break up my listening due to the length of the recording.
Oh, this is a tough question. Iced is such a great read, and I really enjoy the peace of snuggling up with a good book - but this performance is so spot on that I think I love both formats equally.
said it before and I'll say it again - nothing compares to this series!
I have two favorite scenes -
1. When Dani dies at the church. This scene somehow manages to be tense, sweet and hysterically funny from one moment to the next.
2. Dani and Ryodan's fight at the club when she discovers he is still alive. KMM writes characters that make you want to scream at times, and this is one of them. So much goes unsaid here that I find myself wanting to jump into the book and mediate, just so the characters will finally understand that they care about each other.
Don't skip this book because you are too attached to Mac and Barrons. I guarantee you will love Dani and Ryodan just as much - if not more- by the end of this book.
I loved the book. I laughed out loud, and was definitely on the edge of my seat. Next bo Barron's, I love Ryodan. It is pretty obvious that he sees the woman Dani will become. I think Christian is just losing it because of the Fae prince thing. Ryodan is looking out for her, and tells her on many occassions that he would never hurt her. It is clear that he wants to keep her where he can see her at all times, and knows what she is up to. Unfortunately, our little 14yr old firecracker is very unpredictable. (Let's hope she grows up in the next book). Although she was definitely acting like a typical super-hero 14 year old; there were times when her conscious about hurting people should have kicked into high gear. Have to admit, I didn't see the whole Jo thing coming. I think eventually she will be a casualty, because she is playing with her heart. Something tells me that Ryo takes no prisoners. Not all ruthless and cold, but he has an agenda. He is definitely worth developing. He's like Barron's, the anti-hero. Not bad, but definitely not good. Somewhere in between that beautiful shade of gray. I cannot wait until the next book. Loved it.
PS - Can we have Dani grow up a bit, please!!!
Loved, Loved, Loved! I missed the Fever Series so much - I was so happy to be back in that world. I was sad that Mac and Barrons weren't the focus of the story, but quickly came to love the banter between Dani and Ryodan, and Christian's weirdness. The story is a great mystery, but it's really the dynamic between the characters that makes it. In fact, the story was so good, it made me realize just how much I had been missing the Fever series and I started reading that all over again. Thanks, Karen!
P.S. - It would be AWESOME if you could get Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante to re-do the narration on the earlier Fever books.

I loved the Highlander series and how it transitioned into the Fever books so I was very happy to read/listen to where KMM would take me next. As in the Fever books I love the addition of Phil Gigante but I was disappointed to see that Natalie Ross was the reader for the female characters again. I do not care for her interpretation of the characters and her accents are a slip, skip and miss most of the time. I usually listen to KMM books over and over because they are well written and when I am going about my day-to-day time seems to fly, unfortunately I do not believe I could block out what frustrates me about NR to fully enjoy a re-read.
