Publisher's Summary

Immortal Faerie and ancient feuds, secrets and sacrifices - a thrilling new chapter in the bestselling Fever series begins, featuring Dani, Ryodan, and other beloved characters, as they battle to save Dublin from the rising of a terrifying evil determined to enslave the human race.

There is no action without consequence.

Dani O'Malley was nine years old when the delusional, sadistic Rowena transformed her into a ruthless killer. Years later, Dani is tough and hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, and driven by deeper ones carved into her soul, no one is more committed to protecting Dublin. By day she ensures the safety of those she rescues, by night she hunts evil, dispensing justice swiftly and without mercy, determined to give to those she cares for the peace she has never known.

There is no power without price.

When the Faerie Queen used the dangerously powerful Song of Making to heal the world from the damage done by the Hoar Frost King, catastrophic magic seeped deep into the earth, giving rise to horrifying, unforeseen consequences - and now deadly enemies plot in the darkness, preparing to enslave the human race and unleash an ancient reign of Hell on Earth.

There is no future without sacrifice.

With the lethal, immortal Ryodan at her side, armed with the epic Sword of Light, Dani once again battles to save the world, but her past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance, demanding an unspeakable price for the power she needs to save the human race. And no one - not even Ryodan, who would move the very stars for her - can save her this time.

High Voltage--bk 10---good story BUT....

High Voltage is well written, BUT the first half is bit long winded.
Amanda Leigh Cobb and Jim Frangione do and excellent narration.

Dani O'Malley is the main character. It shows what she faces as she is left alone to manage without her accumulated family. This is the part that gets to be a bit redundant. I was so happy when some of the old characters started to show up.

New foe will be found--and the Fae have changed, are altered, and those left behind are finding that the new conflict is heading to another war. Old protective runes used to protect the abbey and humans and locations, from the Fae are no longer of use. Ryodan returns to be at her side. With him, her sword of light, and the Dani determination they move straight away into danger. But this time she has a couple of strange personal changes that make her a bit of an unknown, as how this will all turn out you must read the story.

I must say it is my least favorite of the Fever series to date. But the first part is why (being it's dragged out). By the end of the story, it does have it's place in the series.

Satisfying ending but lacks usual depth

I love all KMM books. This one however felt too rushed. The characters lacked their usual depths and personalities. Dani did not have her regular witty self. I have waited more then 3 years to read about the epic story of Dani O'Malley and Ryoden and felt like it went from no story to everyone being in love with everyone within 3-4 pages. No middle ground, no courtship, no usual teasing that I would have expected from both of these characters. The villain was mostly in the background and used to pull the overall story thru rather then present any real threat.
Few times during the book i wondered that this did not feel like usual KMM style.
That being said, it was still an entertaining read, just not like the rest of her books.
Overall I'm glad Dani can finally have cake and eat it too.

Great story!

I sincerely enjoyed where Moning took Dani’s character. I love the new characters and creatures. My only dislike is the narrator for the male voices. I miss the old one who had a deep resonating quality. While the male narrator are good on their timing and inflection, the voice doesn’t feel right for the masculinity of the 9 or any male character. Great for Shazam though!

very enjoyable but.....<br />

I liked Dani's story and was satisfied with the ending. I would have preferred Phil Gigante & Natalie Ross narrating. I like Jim F but not for this book. I think he was too much in my head from JR Ward books!

Male Narrator Was Cringe-inducing

The ONLY reason I gave this audiobook 2 stars is because of the terrible male narrator. The story was AMAZING, which is no surprise, since KMM rarely disappoints. I also thought Amanda Leigh Cobb's performance was very good, Even though her Irish accent occasionally morphed into an English accent, I thought she nailed Dani's character. It is Jim Frangione's terrible, hammed up narration that made this audiobook impossible to enjoy & I feel like I should warn my fellow Audible members before they spend their credit on this. Trust me when I say, the male narration is that bad. Jim Frangione completely butchered every character in the book, save for Shazam, which I actually thought was spot on. He gave all the bad guys that cliché New York gangster henchmen accent you hear in old cartoons, which was absolutely cringe inducing, not to mention, it didn't fit within the context of the story, considering they are in DUBLIN, IRELAND! He also gave Lor that hammed up New York accent, but the worst offense of all was the voice he gave Ryoden. He made my favorite sexy, testosterone packed, manly man sound like a kind old man. Sacrilege! I tried to ignore it, I really did, but I could not stop cringing every time the male narrator opened his mouth & it completely took me out of the story. I finally gave up listening & bought the eBook instead. A wasted credit. Such a bummer.. :'( I just can't understand, that out of ALL the male narrators out there, Brilliance Audio had to hire the worst possible choice. I understand that anyone they choose will have big shoes to fill, because I doubt anyone could ever top Phil Gigante's amazing performances. I understand why he had to be replaced & am ok with that. I'm sure Jim Frangione is a lovely person in real life, but he should have done his homework. How hard could it be to listen to some of the previous Fever audiobooks & emulate to the best of his ability? I'm not asking for an exact replica; it doesn't have to be perfect or even close to perfect, but at the very least, he could have at least tried to keep the voices & accents fluid with the previous audiobooks in the series. /Rant over As far as the story goes, I thought it was fantastic! I'm thrilled to have another Dani O'Malley centric book, because I have always loved her character. I was hooked, from start to finish & loved every minute. And like I said before, I thought Amanda Leigh Cobb did a great job as the female narrator. I feel like she is a worthy replacement for Natalie Ross, maybe even better. Audible really should allow members to rate each rate each narrator separately when the book has multiple narrators. I don't think it's fair to group Amanda's good performance with Jim's terrible one. Having said all that, I would recommend saving your credit & buy the book/eBook instead. You won't regret it!

Not Worth it

With all talk about this book I couldn’t wait to read ( listen) to it and boy I have to say it suck . The way Dani story was told in feversong I couldn’t stop the tears. So I was hoping for the same thing with ryokan. Not it was flat and boring till the end

Well worth the wait and then some!

Dani finally got her story! for those of us that have followed this series for years, being able to finally see the pieces come together for Dani & Ryodan was a real treat! Aside from the excitement of being able to go through this story I knew I still needed to pay attention and not just skim through because K.M.M. is known for opening new doors and possibilities where the reader least expects them. This story has tons of new information and back story, but it was true to the theme of discovery of love and letting one self be loved. I had no idea where the story line was taking me through most of the audio so I was gripped and totally immersed. The performances by the narrators was superb on both counts!! The last 10 or so chapters were unputdownable!!! K.M.M. has a gift for words, world building but even more so, for creating connections among characters that make you care and keep going through every book. Great story!!

Love this series, but.....

I really love Karen Marie Monings book, but I really have a hard time listening to the male narrator of this boo. I have returned quite a few books that was read by this narrator. It really made a difference. Unfortunately it made my listening experience unenjoyable.

Loved it.

Finally! The Dani and Ryoden book we all have been waiting for.

I wasn't very happy with the last two books, but this one made up for them.

Loved it!

“I’m okay I’m...”

High Voltage was a different book to what I was expecting. In comparison to the first nine books, which were chock full of mystery, intrigue and blow-you-over plot reveals; High Voltage was much more of a character study, with some HUGE moments serving the character development, but it played out a bit more understated than the previous books.
Personally, I think it pairs well with Feversong, because whilst FS was the culmination of various plot threads that had been established in the earlier books, it was also very much about Mac accepting the many facets of her own character.
HV expands on this idea by moving the heftier story elements to the background and delving into the forces that drive Dani. She is logical and guarded, she has been conditioned to compartmentalise her own thoughts and feelings, she has suffered abuses and loss beyond imagination, she has an exacting eye and a lust for life. She’s always been a character that I’ve viewed in contradictions. One moment she is zipping around Dublin without a care in the world, her emotions pouring out of her and the next moment she is shut off from everyone around her. After HV, I think I finally understand her and why it had to be this tenth book in the series where things clicked into place for me.
Some may think that there is a little bit of deus ex machina at play, towards the end of the book, but Dani has been through her fair share of suffering and sacrifice in order for the ending to be the exact type of ending that the book should have had.
This was a story about growing up, family, love and belonging. It was a story about grasping on to the things that you want in life, but also seeking and owning the things that you have to work hard for - the things you have to earn the right to deserve, where the pay-off is so much sweeter. And finally, it was a story about finding your match, mate, the other part of your soul and having to work on understanding and loving yourself to perfect clarity so that those two pieces could finally fit together without the fissures that were there before.
This was not the book I was expecting, but I’m so damn happy that it was the book I got.
