I really loved this book - the characters were great! Dani was such a refreshing heroine. When I first realized she was 14 I was like "this can't be good", but she was awesome. She just loves life, and she made me happy listening to her. There's this moment where she thinks she is going to freeze to death, so she cracks the biggest smile/laugh just so her body will be frozen in a happy state. I mean, you have to love someone like that!
In addition to being super positive she also kicks some serious ass. And she is super tough. I can't wait for the rest of the series! Natalie Ross does a great job with her as well.
I also think I might have a small book-crush on Ryodan. YUM. Phil Gigante gives him an awesome voice.
I never read the Fever-series, and I think I might have had a slight disadvantage because of it. The world isn't explained in enough detail, so I'm still sort of confused about the sidhe-seers, the Sinsar Dubh, the Unseelie and the story concerning Cruce. While I'm waiting for Burned I think I'll read Fever. Still, the plot is good, and it's all entertaining. It's suspense and SO funny. I laughed so hard at some of the dialog between Dani and the other characters (mostly Ryodan), as well as Danis inner monologue. I really recommend you read this!
"Life's a choice: you can live in black and white, or you can live in color. I'll take every shade of the rainbow and the gazillion in between!” -Dani
This is a must listen book. If you haven't then get it right now. Natalie Ross, and Phil Gigante, you rock. Dani and the other characters, well just Wow. Bring on more books! I almost cried at the end didn't want it to end.
I have recommended this book to several friends. It is a very good book, great story line and good characters. Can't wait to see where the story goes
Danni was my favorite character, because she's a young girl that has a lot of power, and seeing how seeing how she deals with it in the new world.
Dancer, Phil used the perfect voice for this character.
Action! Adventure! An Ice Monster!
Natalie Ross does a fantastic job of bringing KMM's Dani O'Malley to life. I also read the book and really enjoyed it. The narration and chemistry between Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante 's characters, however; makes this audible book a must listen. I have read/listened to all of KMM's books and her writing just keeps getting better(which can't be said for a lot of authors). The descriptions of AWC Dublin are so good that I can almost see them through Dani's eyes. The dialogue is even better. I loved this story and can't wait for the next book. Don't let this one pass you by!
I loved every bit of the book
There are many memorable moments but my fav would be the part when the boys are trying save Dani and they are or almost naked.
Great!! This was my first audiobook and I actually liked it.
I would reccommend this book to anyone who has been following the whole series. Which is great.
The ending! Leaves you wanting more!
Yes, they are very good together and always capture the essence of the books.
Yes, but no such luck.
I'm a HUGE fan of Karen Marie Moning and Phil Gigante's narration. I went to the signing and bought the book - but quickly succumbed and bought the audio book also and then listened to it. I wasn't disappointed. I'm not a huge Natalie Ross fan and she did the majority of the narration. But, Gigante and his grasp of different accents and the growl tones of the Alpha males in this series eclipsed it.
I was worried about Ross' narration of Dani because her tone in the Shadowfever books was very juvenille, but she did soften Dani in ICED and I was pleased with the turnout. The story is also top notch. I was also worried about how Karen Marie Moning would handle this Dani spin-off and I was pleased. KMM is a genius. Please go back and listen to the Fever series books first though. While this is a spin-off and could technically be read without partaking in Mac & Barron's story - you don't want to miss out on it. The Fever Series is on of the best Paranormal/Urban Fantasy series I've ever read.
The Series, this story, the narration all comes together as the perfect listen. I am obsessed by the Highlander and Fae Series - and can't wait for the next book and chapter in the Dani MEGA O'Malley story. Love the way she explores a new world AWC and the teasing of various relationships.
Too many to name and dont want to give any spoilers!
Anytime the men square off and fight over Dani
To the review prude freaking out over Dani's age; Have you read the whole Series? If not, you need too, for perspective. And really, you are wigging out over a 14yr old exploring her feelings and attractions and are surprised men are attracted to her? Geez-I'm not so old that I don't remember fourteen but you must be. Yet you don't seem to mind the fact she's been carrying a sword and KILLING since age 9 and I find that interesting. I believe experiences shape a person, not their age. We all know people over 40 that lack the common sense & maturity of others at age 14 yr. In particular, a fictional girl abandoned as a child, feeding & fending for herself, facing & killing monsters, super human strength & intelligence, who was also touched by the Grey Woman (who obviously aged her)! So leave KMM to do her fictional magic and don't force her into changing directions.
Yes I would recommend anything written by Karen Marie Moning. Absolutely creative world with amazing characters.
Don't want to give anything away but love the humor.
Yes and they are amazing as ever.
Start with book one in the Fever series.
must read: darynda jones, Karen moning, Ilona Andrews, kim harrison, gena showalter, Karen chance,patricia briggs,jeaniene frost ,L taylor,
i would recommend this book! it is so much fun, the types of fae are creative and interesting. there is action, some humor, great tension, the narration is fantastic.
it is a continuation of characters from the Fever series. FANTASTIC series, you could read this book alone but there would be a little something missing, you should get the Fever series, it's worth starting there. There is significant back story, the first in the Fever series is good but they get better and better as you go, leaving you dying waiting for the next. i know this series Iced will be the same. it tied up part of the story but there is a cliff hanger at the end! Can't wait to see how Danni grows and what she'll do next!
OMG!! SOOO MUCH! Phil Gigante's voice has been described as eargasmic...i really agree. EXCELLENT narration, Natalie Ross was very good too. you can tell the difference between all the female characters and she brought Danni's sass to life.
just hungry for the next book
i do have to point out that the lead female is only 14, she has a lot of life expierience that makes her a mega awesome warrior and seem older. i was slightly disturbed by the sexual interest other characters had for her. The best part is because of her age she pretty much didn't notice the interest, especially at first, and really had no interest of her own, was more about the kicking but and beginng mega awesome, no time for funny business!! love her character.
