~Iced (Fever #6) by Karen Marie Moning
Hardcover, First Edition, 495 pages
Published October 30th 2012 by Delacorte Press
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning comes the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban paranormal trilogy, set in the world of her blockbuster Fever series.

The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.

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 rare 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.


Iced! 'nuff said.
It was fecking mind-blowing! ♥

  4. Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be at the net the simplest thing to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other
    people consider worries that they just do not recognize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top
    and also outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects ,
    people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
    Thanks

  5. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near
    future but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
    Have a look at my page : free iphone

  6. Ooh the cover for Poison is gorgeous. I'm another person who hasn't read any books by Morning - yet! I've seen nothing but praise for Iced - do you think we have to start at the beginning of the series for that one ... but then again, I'm OCD like that - I have to start at the beginning!
