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 few 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.

Took a while for me to get into it and for all of the characters to be linked but overall it was a good read. Definitely not the best in the series but enjoyable. Loved the voices/characters on Audible.
Dani seriously just annoys me the feck out of me in the book. She is too young to be the main character in a YA book. She is so dense and immature.. The book was boring and WAY TOO drawn out. It is also very perverted that grown ass men are all getting their panties in a bunch over a 14 year old regardless of what she might be when she grows up. I am only trying to get through this book due to the fact that the next one should be released in the next week or so. But seriously what am I missing what makes this book so amazing?? I could and wish I did go without ever starting this crap
If Dani is the main character again, YES this book did turn off from the remainder of the series..
Seriously what were you thinking making Dani the main character in a YA book. She only 14 years of age. BRING BACK THE ADULTS!
I would compare this book to the Artemis Fowl books. This world has an active faerie world with an exceptionally gifted prepubescent main character.
I was initially annoyed by the main character. She is an immature cocky, exceptionally gifted 14 year old street urchin from Dublin, Ireland. I did not realize this was a spin off book/character from a well established series. It is evident that much has happened with this story/world to get to the starting point of this book. While I found the main character to be pretty annoying throughout the book, I do like the world and I think the story was well written, so I might try the first book of the series, and see how I like that.
funny adventurous badass
danny is a sterical and I love everything coming from her point of view I also love the transformation of Christian and how your delved into her world
Danny and probably Christian Danny because she's adventurous young but has this super hero complex and really tries to help people Christian because he is so in love with Danny and I find it hysterical that he's a drop by dead sex face now
it made me laugh it did make me cry and it made me go NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO especially towards the end because now I have to wait until the 20th of next month for the next book to come out
if you love dolls of the other stories and you're thinking you might not like this one because Mac is not the star trust me you're gonna love Danny and you're going to get addictive to her tenacious spirit I just hope they make more books about Danny
it not being in first person perspective!
Anything to get this book out of my head!
I preferred the other woman who did the first fever books!
All of Dani's inner ramblings!
I will not read any more from this author!

I truly feel this particular story could have been left out of this series. it doesn't add much and listening to Dani say "dude!" constantly became as wearing as Anastasia Steele's "oh my!" in Fifty Shades. And I'm sorry but a 14 yr old with several grown men attracted to her has a huge ick factor....she is barely a teenager! As a mom that just had creepy written all over it....and I'm no prude! It's just one of the things that made me feel like this story just didn't need to be included.
Then add to it the fact that Natalie Ross does a horrible Irish accent and my opinion is complete.
I'm still near the beginning of the book, the story seems intriguing. However, I'm uncertain if I can listen to the narrator's criminally bad "Irish" accent...or should I say "accents". Mostly sounds Australian, possibly English with a speech defect, a touch of Scottish inflection (if the narrator had a terrible cold). Anything but actually Irish. Why take a story set in Dublin and have it narrated in a way that bears NO resemblance to anyone in my family? I'm finding it nearly unbearable to listen to because the phony voices keep kicking me out of the story. Going to try to stick it out, but no promises and definitely no recommendation. Was the editor unconscious?
Only if the narration is done authentically.
Would have been better for Ms. Ross to speak in an American accent the whole time. I'd give it 0 stars for performance but Phil Gifante got 6/5 so I averaged it out.
