Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Love the story, not the narration"
    What made the experience of listening to Iced the most enjoyable?

    The female narrator is very hard to understand. The pitch of her voice varies a lot, forcing me to turn up the volume to hear the lower pitches. This makes the overall listening experience less than acceptable. Her use of an Irish accent also varies.

    Story
    "Would be good except..."

    I can't stand the heroine being a 14 year old girl. If it was strictly a YA book I would have preferred it to having to constantly think about a 14 year old child in a club where sex is so prominent, where waitresses have to dress like school girls and where grown men want her. As the mother of two teenagers and having been a young girl in situations beyond my maturity, I hate this aspect of the book and I can't even finish it. I don't think it's cute and I don't think it's right to continually make children the focus of sexual situations and relationships. I don't begrudge KMM her success, I just wish she would have either left Dani as a kid sister or made her older. To make her the object of grown men's sexual awareness is not only creepy, it's sick in a very real way. I'm truly disappointed! If there was ever a book I wanted to return, it would be this one.

    "Outstanding and Impressive!"

    I found this book to be an engrossing story and an excellent listen! This is my first experience with KM Moning's writing and now I will be encouraged to check out out her other books. Enjoyable writing that is not dumbed down even though the story is told through the main character who is a young fourteen-year-old girl. Excellent characters that really drew me in! The main character Dani is very endearing. She is courageous and smart, and even pretty wise-for-her-age about some aspects of her life and her world around her. The other characters were creepy-good, except for her good friend Dancer who is not creepy. The narration is quite good and really brought the story to life...just one caveat: they could have been just a little more careful (in production?) with the female narrators voice as far as tone and volume so it was a little easier to catch every word. Overall, a great story with good plot and pacing, and what an ending! I will be looking forward to the next book in this series!

    Story
    "Oh, KMM, you weave a MEAN tale! I <3 it!"

    So many of you have already dived in, and have read ICED ~ I've actually listened to it TWICE already, lol. Once by myself, and once during my commute w/ my nephew, who I've totally got hooked on the Fever series, too.

    I've mulled over how I feel about it, where I want it to go, dadadadadada...

    and here it is ~


    At first, I wasn't warming up to Dani ~ I actually think I was still pissed at her on Mac's behalf. (If you haven't read the series, let me tell you this is one you really DO need to read in order, and all of them.) Once I could see my way past that, I see Dani has already done quite a bit of growing up ~ but she's still so full of herself that at times I just wanted to choke her, lol. But come on! She's 14, she basically IS a super hero, and look who her role models ARE!

    So I've concluded that she's coming along pretty darn good ~ in this book we see her going to work for Ryodan, who we of course sort of got to know in the Fever series. You'll get to know him better in this book ~ and from the set up, a WHOLE lot better in coming books. He's litterally bribed and forced Dani into working for him to help him figure out what is freezing up certain parts of Dublin to the point that it is killing everything that exsists at that point and time ~ and he's been a sneaky bastard to do it.

    But gah, I love this sexy, sneaky, bastard. I can't HELP it!


    Then we have Christian MacKeltar ~ remember him? Well, he's turned almost ALL Fae Prince now, and he's decided that Dani is his one true love. But she's too young yet, so he's willing to wait...at a VERY close distance, w/ one eye on Ryodan the whole time.


    Then we have, of course, Dancer. Dani has been friends w/ Dancer since the walls fell ~ we heard about him in the Fever series, but we really get to know him in this book, and I like the kid! And even just being human, his smarts DO make him a super hero, as Dani says, and make Ryodan & Christian and the others take note of what he says. And again, while he doesn't seem to be IN love with Dani, he certainly watches over her, and is concerned over her well being.


    So...we see Dani grow up & mature quite a bit just during this book. She comes to some hard realizations about herself, and others she's surrounded herself with. There is of course the mystery of the ICE, but we also have the mystery of WHO will be Dani's hero...and while ALL these boys are quite a fews years her senior (OK, in Ryodan's case, millenium) I truly wasn't squicked out by it. Thought I would be ~ wasn't. I guess, with the immortality, and the simple fact that since the first page KMM introduced Dani, she's never really come across as a CHILD to me. The world as we know doesn't exsist any longer in this fictional world ~ and Dani has had to scrabble for every day of her exsistence. So yeah, I buy it. She's smarter, harder, faster & more mature than most adults, never mind teens.


    I'm anxious and curious to see what is going to happen between Dani and Mac ~ I feel like Dani can't move much further along w/ her life until she faces that demon down. And what about the We Care? Gah, was pissed that was left hanging, but isn't that how each of the Fever books kept us hooked from book to book?


    I'll tell you a secret ~ I really, REALLY want Dani to end up w/ Ryodan in my heart of hearts. I think they belong together ~ and yup, maybe that makes me one sick puppy, but I think they do!


    So this was the Audio version ~ And WOW, Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross ROCKED it! FABULOUS doesn't even begin to describe how good it was ~ OMG, Ryodan's voice was uber sexy, and rowr for Lore (man, I hope we one day get his book!) and Dani's voice was perfect ~ and made me laugh when she got on one of her little feckin' tears. There wasn't a single thing about the audio version I didn't like ~ it played through my head like I was watching a movie!

    "Fired up!"

    I always thought Dani to be very annoying, but after listening to her story I'm entranced. I can't wait to see what unfolds from the love triangle. I can't wait for her to get older and the story get more steamy. I'm hooked!!

    "Horrible narrator"

    I couldn't listen to this story because the narrator was terrible. The tone and pace were irritating at best. I would perhaps try to read the novel- but no way could I finish listening.

    "Disappointed"

    This book is everything I dislike about YA fiction. Too many stereotypes,come on people the girl is only 13 . Too much sexual innuendo too, it just does not do anything for the story. I finished it,that the best I can say about it.

    Story
    "Great followup to Fever series"

    Was reluctant to listen to this book, because of the main character, Dani. She wasn't one of my favorite characters from the Fever series, and didn't think I'd enjoy this book. Boy, was I ever wrong. This was a great followup to the Fever series, and seems to be left wide open for another.
    I got a new appreciation for Dani, in this book, and found myself feeling sorry for the girl. It depicts a street smart teenager, with a lot of naivety yet, from only being a 14 year old. She loves Dancer, who has been a true friend and seems to have looked out for her well being for a long time. But, Dani has two other guys interested in her, as in waiting for her to grow up... Christian who is turning into an Unseelie Prince, and hates Mac because it's her fault that he's becoming Fae, and Ryodan, part of Barron's mysterious group, and nightclub owner. Ryodan, is looking for an answer to the strange icings that are killing people, and wants to control Dani in order to get her assistance. His other motives at this point seem to be unclear, other than controlling the girl, while waiting for her to age.
    Dani though has one goal, and that is to rid Dublin of the Fae, and get the world back to the way it was. She wants to be independent, but cares for everyone's well being that she meets. But, the world is full of bad people and beings, that have other ideas for Dani.

    "FREAKIN' LOVED IT!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Iced to be better than the print version?

    Yes the voices were fantastic! I love the dual male and female narrators it was perfect!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definately Dani, you can tell she's an arrogate teenagers and its awesome and funny.


    What does Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They really bring the characters to life with their awesome accented voices....I couldn't imagine voices that good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the great Dani O'Malley "Mega" teenage super hero brakes down and cries. Dani grows up just a little bit when she feels responsible for other peoples lives and shows regrets for her past actions.


    Any additional comments?

    This book isn't big on romance, but its not lacking in action and it definately keeps your attention. I am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
