This new chapter in the Fever World is absolutely amazing. I am a huge fan of the fever series and I have to say this first book in the Dani Novels was even better than the first book in Mac's story so my expectations for the next one are set super high. Dani is a fascinating character full of depht and complexity. The the tension of the love triangle surrendering a teenager based on the woman they all know she will become fill me with anticipation. I was captivated from beggining to end and was plesantly supprised at the fact that this story had enough of a resolution to placate (I hate cliff hangers) but at the same time left enough unanswered to keep me anxiously waiting for the next one. I love that most characters are hard to categorize as good or evil so the story keeps you guessing. My only complaint is that I wanted to find out more about Mac and Barrons but I guess that is why this is a Dani O'Malley Novel as opposed to a Mac novel :) NEXT ONE PLEASE!!!!
The performance was very well done, however the story was... Who is this written for? The main character is a 14 yr old girl, surrounded by "death by sex fae" How is this appropriate? I didn't realize the main character was 14 when I purchased it, but kept listening thinking my daughter might like it, I will not give it to her. If you want to write Fairy Porn, write Fairy Porn, I have no bones with Meredith Gentry, but 14? Are you kidding me?
These Narrators keep you locked in until the end and you never want it to end! Of course, the story line draws you relentlessly. My family just groans when they see another Karen Marie Moning book in my Kindle. They know "take out" is coming and I guess they can do their own errands until I finish this book. Can't put it down. You will love it, just be sure you clear your calendar before you begin or someone will be real disappointed.
For those of you who haven't read Karen Marie Moning before, her first person narrative is one of the best I've read stylistically. The narration is true to the character narrating, flows smoothly, and never comes off as artificial. Pair that with a unique world of magic and mayhem that's colorful, mysterious, and exciting, and her stories promise to be engaging, endearing, and energetic.
Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross read the story, splitting characters and narratives. They do a fantastic job bringing characters to life with unique voices for the various characters and their voices complement each other well.
Iced is the story of 14 year old Dani O'Malley: sidhe-seer, superhero, and on-site reporter. Dani works hard to protect the people of Dublin from the Fae now that the Wall separating our world from theirs has fallen. It's a hard knock life growing up on the dark streets when she moves faster than even her eyes can track. And that was before the Dark Fae—and darker things—started paying attention to her. So when summer begins to frost up, Dani's going to have to team up with people she doesn't like. Even worse, they're grown ups!
I love to read. Always have & always will. Audible makes it possible when I can't sit and read. Audio brings great stories to life!!!!
FECKING HILARIOUS!!!! Boy, that Dani is a character....Put her and Ryodan together and I just about laughed until I cried. I was so sad when the Fever Series ended and I was not to interested in given this one a chance because I assumed that it would be to adolescent for me when I found out that the series was featured around Dani. And truth be told she was not a favorite of mine in the Fever series. I even started not to read it which would have been a HUGE mistake on my part. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed "Iced". It brought back everything I loved about the Fever Series and I even grew to love Dani. As the main character, I got to see more of her personality and spirit instead of her being the little aggravating sidekick of Mac. Dani's character really blossomed into a wonderful heroine or superhero as she likes to call herself. I got to see more of Ryodan in this book as well, even though he still remains a mystery, pretty much like Barrons was in the Fever series. If you are looking for a hilarious read, mixed with tons of action, mystery and fantasy, look no further.... You will love Iced..... I also recommend listening to the audio version. The narration was great. It added even more flavor to the book!!! I cannot wait for the next one. This is going to be TORTURE!!!!!😂😂😂😂
I had high hopes for this book, but I was thoroughly let down. I have tried several times to listen to it, but always end up cutting it off.
The story in itself has potential. The main character Dani is annoying as all get out. She can not speak without throwing the F Bomb around like it's a nuclear holocaust. And her personality is just way to immature for the language she uses.
I love fantasy and science fiction.
Moning does a wonderful job continuing the Fae Fever story with Danny O' Malley. This one was just as fun and exciting as the others. And Phil Gigante is always a pleasure to listen to ;)
yes, there is too much confusion between characters. They all sound the same. The accent is just too equal for all the female characters, and even the males.
There are many problems with the story line, I think. It is really boring the first half, then it picks up towards the middle. Danni's character is just annoying. I realize she is supposed to be young, but she is smart, cunning, astute about what is going on, but why must she sound like a over puffed puffin? She is always saying how wonderful she is, and it is ok for a few times, but it gets so repetitive. Also, how the characters move from Kat to Danni is really almost impossible to tell until you get past the first few minutes of the dialogue. The first time it happened was so confusing I didn't know for almost the whole time what was happening was not to Danni.
This is partly the fault of the narrator.
I have not finished the book yet, so I don't know what will be happening. It is finally coming together, at this point.
not well. I have enjoy the other books, and enjoy the narration characterizations more. The were more distinct.
It is all said above.
No, there is just not enough meat on Danni's character yet. She need much more depth.
Yes! The narrators were FABULOUS!!!
Ryodan and Dani
They did a great job with the characters. I liked that there were 2 narrators.
This story may have been good but I was unable to find out. The narration is terrible. I couldn't understand a word she said.
