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.

Like others have mentioned, I wasn't enthused about a story that revolves around a young girl. And yes, there are some uncomfortable moments where grown men (Christian and Riordan) are sexually excited in her presence. There are also a couple uncomfortable moments with Riordan's abusive/controlling treatment of Dani. Despite these moments, I found the story to be very entertaining - and Moning is very talented in her treatment of these situations. Throughout the story, there was great character development, especially for Riordan, Lore and Dancer. I definitely want to learn more about Dancer. Dani is exactly as you remember her, though you learn much more about her past. There is a complete story that is nicely wrapped up at the end, although there is a minor cliff-hanger relating to her relationship with Mack, who has only a very minor presence in this book.
Sewing is Fun
I have never read anything like it.
You do not know what is going to happen next.
The Irish accent.
I truly enjoyed the funny smart aleck remarks.
I am looking forward to the next book.
I just began reading this series about a month ago, and decided that I had to listen to this book because I needed to be able to tear through it. First I'd like to say that the voice talents for this novel were great. Second, the story itself is awesome. If you've read the other novels and understand that the heroine is 14 you may get a little nervous about it being a little racy, but trust me, its done tastefully. Can't wait for the next installment and this was well worth my book credit!
YES! I read the book as soon as it was released, then purchased the audio book. The audio book is amazing. The narrators really breathe life into the characters and the emotions run true in every chapter. Fantastic performance!
******Spoilers******* When Danny gets hypothermia in the church. I love how helpless the "alpha" males become and have to rely on a human to save her.
They give an amazing performance. I think I would buy any book they read together. I love Natalie Ross's voice for Danny. And Phil Gigante's voice for Tor gave me chills! I love the chapter of Christian's inner dialogue- I had to listen twice- it was THAT good!
I am very much looking forward to Burned- I really hope both narrators continue in the next book *hint hint audible*
Everything. Did not get it from the beginning and I tried starting over 3 times but it was just not attention getting
Have no idea
I Loved, loved , loved, this book. Of course, I loved her fever series, so it was so fun to read this book from her POV instead of Mac's. I can't wait until the next one comes out. !
Yes, I will listen again. I love this story, my review is on amazon already for the book. I just wanted to say that Phil Gigante is amazing. He adds something to the story that I didn't get by just reading it. Adding Natalie Ross made the story even more outstanding. Gre
The fever series is forever ingrained in my soul. I will read every book in this series over and over again. It's a plus that my favorite author and narrator are collaborating again.
Ryo, Dani, hell everyone. I don't have a fav because I love every character that this series has introduced thus far.
Yes, if it was possible I definitely would have. I ended up listening when possible and reading the rest.
Busy working mother and wife. I love the hot romances with happy endings. If I want to hear something depressing I will turn on the news.
Faster pace, and older main character, she was a little too young for me to relate to, but a younger reader may really enjoy the book.
They where both great I just did not care for the story.
Natalie Ross is great. Just was not my style.
I loved the original series. The audio performance was so bad I couldn't stand to listen to it. I'm going to have to buy the book.
Terrible absolutely terrible. The volume was inconsistent. In the car I could barely hear or understand what Mr. Gigante was saying. I had to turn it off.
