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.
Funny, Angsty, Sexy
I would compare it to Darkfever because, just like Mac, Dani always finds humor even in the direst circumstances
The Dani "vibrating" scene
it made me laugh a lot, Dani is just such a great character, full of life, at times child-like, and others mature beyond her years, but she is so witty and fun!
Dani, a favored character in the prior series enters into puberty all alone in a city destroyed from the walls falling and the demons running loose in her beloved city. Estranged from Mac, and still fighting the good fight against evil, Dani tries to protect her old friends and enemies, while negotiating feelings no 14 year old should have. Karen Marie has continued to hit a grand slam providing us with a new story line on her old story that leaves us waitting and wanting for more.
I really loved this new story because KMM kept all the great familiar characters.
Ryodan,his persona was deep & complex
I have listened to all of the fever series,this one is equally good,well done!
Can't wait to listen to the next one :"Burned"
Performance is great. The story is very good and adds to the overall story line of KKM's Fever series. This first book lets us into the Dani O'Malley story which is high paced and fun to read. You will still deal with other characters from the Fever series which makes this story set well and you feel it is the story continuing. I see KKM's name and I know the book will not be a disappointment.
What a great book, I don't want to say to much other than you will not be dissapointed. I did not want to put it down, I love the way she portrays Dani fits a 14 yr old to a T. Anyway can't wait for the next book!
The humor between the characters and the actual things they said that made me laugh.
Well I love the guy who does the voice of Lor My goodness he actually makes the character like someone you know. They were both great and I hope they do not change them in the next books now that I have heard tham that is what I will expect to hear. They are FANTASTIC!
I like when dani talks about Dancer and that she has not understood yet that he is becoming more than a freind or seems to be.
Yeah people are really getting the wrong Idea about this book who are reading it and not hearing it on audible at first I was confussed about the grown men liking a 14 yr old too but I am thinking perhaps it is almost in a fatherly way and remember these supposed men are 500 or better years anyway so any age would be an infant for them LOL. It's a book people if your reading it for sex wake your husband or boyfriend up! Truthfully though hearing it read helps alot. READ IT BETTER YET LISTEN TO IT YOU'LL LOVE IT IF YOU LIKED THE FEVER SERIES!
