~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! ♥

(Be careful of some spoilers ^^)

My god... where do I start, where do I start! Fucking amazing book, making me crazy!
The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning is my favorite series ever so I was thrilled to finally have Iced in my hands. 
At first I was skeptical about it because I was disappointed the next 3 books won't be in Mac's POV. I also was never a fan of Dani. I kind of thought she was annoying so I wasn't looking forward to reading in her POV. Also, I didn't see how with her being 14 years old would work in this series. KMM said it wouldn't be a YA book so I was wondering about that. But on the other hand I was really excited to read more about Ryodan, Christian and to finally get to know Dancer. Now after reading Iced, I take everything back that I ever said about Dani. She is fecking awesome! At first I had to get used to her, but it took only a few pages to see that Dani is one amazing character.
“Holy borrowing bibliophile, let's book!”
Dani O'Malley is one kick-ass girl! She can stand her own always, all the time, between all these arrogant men. Gotta love that about her.
I was really glad when we found out more about her, her past, so we can understand why she is the way she is. It made me like her more. I would never expected to love reading about her as much as I did. 

Christian also had some chapters in his POV. I love love love loved that! Yeah, sure, he was kind of creepy and disturbing but I love him. Christian slowly changed into a full Unseelie prince, which was very freaky to watch. I really felt for the guy. I'm just glad he still has a part highlander in him, even if it just was a little bit.
Christian is amazing. The way he sacrificed himself for her... Awww!
I love how he's attracted to Dani and oh please let them end up together somehow... They would be amazing.

“She's too young. Too innocent.
Too human. For what I'm becoming.”

Ryodan, oh my... He sure was something. I couldn't help but compare him to Barrons. Let me tell ya; they are definitely not the same. Ryodan feels more like a true psychopath to me. But I can't help but also love him. He has his good moments and he is oh so hot!
He seems to be interested in Dani. Not in the yucky way because she's only 14 but there's something there.

“Dani, Dani, Dani."
I flinch. I've never heard anyone say my name so gently. It creeps me all kinds of out.
He's towering over me, arms crossed over his chest, scarred forearms dark against the rolled-up sleeves of a crisp white shirt.
Heavy silver cuffs glint at both wrists. The light is smack behind his head, as usual.
"You didn't really think I'd let you get away with it," Ryodan says.”

We finally met the mysterious Dancer! I love that boy. He's cute, really smart and he actually gets Dani. But I do have a feeling he has his dark secrets also. I can't wait to find out more about him.

We also got a POV from Kat. I got to admit those where my least favorite but they were interesting nontheless. I'll try not to spoil too much but Cruce came a lot into them too. ;)
Speaking of the Sidhe-Seers... Jo was a lot in Iced too. And I'm pretty sure I hate her. I can't help myself! She's so... ugh, thinking she actually has a real relationship with Ryodan. However, I can't seem to figure out if deep deep deep deeeeeeeeep down maybe Ryodan doesn't care for her too. Anyhow, I can't stand her. Why does Ryodan have to 'boink' her. *shakes head*

Lor, one of Ryodan's men, was so fun to read about! The dude's hilarious. I definitely want more of him in the upcoming books. 
“Stop. Vibrating." Ryodan plucks a paper out of the air and slaps it back down on his desk.
I wonder if he cleans it. How many tushes have been on that thing? I'm never touching it again. "Can't help it," I say around a mouthful of candy bar. I know what I look like: a smudge of black leather and hair. "It happens when I get really excited. The more excited I get, the more I vibrate."
"Now there's a thought," Lor says.
"If you mean what I think you mean, you want to shut the fuck up ad never think it again," Ryodan says.
"Just saying, boss," Lor says. "You can't tell me you didn't think it, too.”

The plot overall is awesome. It all knd of revolves around this big bad that's icing places, people and fae all over. Ryodan makes Dani work for him, to help find out what this thing is, what it wants and how to stop it. I never would've seen coming what it actually wanted, even when it's actually so obvious. Amazingly done by Ms. Moning! 
I tried to read this book as slowly as I could because, honestly, I didn't want it to end. It was that amazing. Eventually I read it for about a week. I couldn't draw it out any longer. 
Another awesome thing was the chapter titles. It were all sentences from songs. Now it makes sense why they were. Also nicely done by the author.

Now, you're all probably wondering if Mac and Barrons are in Iced. Well, they are! But only for a few moments. A little sad, but that's okay for me because the end is the bomb!
Of course there was a cliffhanger. I was expecting it all throughout the book. And this one, was one to die for. Like, how can it end like this! It physically hurt me to read it. No kidding!
But I'm oh so glad to have read this amazing book. Best book from 2012 without a doubt. 

The emotional feels of this were unbelievable. One moment I was feeling one thing and then the next it was the other.
“All the sudden Ryodan’s standing one inch away from me, hand under my chin, holding my face up to his. “You’ll never be just anything. A tsunami can never be ‘just’ a wave.”
“Get off my chin.”
“I like that about you. Waves are banal. Tsunamis reshape the Earth. Under the right circumstances, even entire civilizations.”
I blink.
“You’re going to be one hell of a woman one day, Dani.”

Iced by Karen Marie Moning was a non-stop, exhilarating, emotional rollercoaster that I never wanted to get off from. The humor, the action, the characters, the plot; I couldn't put the book down. You think you've seen it all after Shadowfever? Iced will rock your world with all the twists and turns and capture your attention without stop!

“He looks at me, looks at my head, and his lips twitch like he's trying not to bust out laughing. "You don't need that... whatever the fuck it is."
"Ain't dying by Shade. It's a MacHalo.”
“I like sex for breakfast, kid. I eat early and often.”
“What does somebody like you want? More power? More toys? More sex?"
"All of the above. All the time."
"Greedy bugger."
"Kid, let me tell you something. Most people spend their short time in this world less than half alive. They wander through their days in a haze of responsibility and resentment. Something happens to them not long after they're born. They get conflicted about what they want and start worshipping the wrong gods. Should. Mercy. Equality. Altruism. There's nothing you should do. Do what you want. Mercy isn't Nature's way. She's an equal opportunity killer. We aren't born the same. Some are stronger, smarter, faster. Never apologize for it. Altruism is an impossible concept. There's no action you can make that doesn't spring from how you want to feel about yourself. Not greedy, Dani. Alive. And happy about it every single fucking day.”

Waiting On Wednesday #44: Blood Prophecy by Alyxandra Harvey


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




~Blood Prophecy (Drake Chronicles #6) by Alyxandra Harvey
Paperback, 496 pages
Expected publication: January 8th 2013 by Walker Childrens 
In the thrilling conclusion of the Drake Chronicles, love and loyalties will be tested ... and proven once and for all.

Solange Drake has been officially crowned Queen of the Vampires, fulfilling the centuries old prophecy that foretold the rise to power of a daughter born to an ancient vampire line. Except Solange's thoughts and actions are no longer her own—she's been slowly being possessed by the spirit of Viola, the first daughter born into the Drake line, since her bloodchange. And instead of uniting the vampire tribes under the rule of an ancient daughter as the prophecy predicted, Viola would rather destroy them all and enslave humans in a personal vendetta for the devastation both wrought to her life centuries ago. Can Solange break her hold in time to save everyone she loves from a vampire civil war, hunter attack, and each other? Not everyone will survive the prophecy . . . perhaps not even her.



~I'm so sad and excited for this book. Sad, because it's the final one in this series. I don't know how I will go on after this! Excited, because I want to find out where things will go from here after that last book. Hopefully it will be the best book so far because the previous one I didn't find really that good compared to all the other awesome books in the series... but I will keep my fingers crossed!

Teaser Tuesdays #43: Iced by Karen Marie Moning



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


I'm stil reading and loving Iced so this week again teasers from it. I picked two because once again I couldn't choose.




~My teasers:
“I look at Ryodan and he looks at me and for a second I think we might both kill the kid. Ryodan's more stone-faced than usual, if that's possible without turning to concrete, and his fangs are out. I look down. Ryodan's dick is as big as mine. "Why the bloody hell don't you wear underwear?" To an Unseelie Prince an exposed male dick is a call to battle.
"They chafe. Too small and confining."
"Fuck you," I say.
"Dudes. Get over yourselves," the kid says.”

“Stop. Vibrating." Ryodan plucks a paper out of the air and slaps it back down on his desk.

Blogger Interview with Jenn from Simply Young Adult


I'm so thrilled to have Jenn from Simply Young Adult with me today for my first blogger interview. 




*Stephanie
*Jenn


Hi Jenn! I'm sooooo happy and excited to have you joining me here on Bookfever for my very first blogger interview. Thank you so much for that! :D

Hey Steph! I am very honored to be here, thanks for asking me.


Let's get this party started! :D
What are you reading now and what are your feelings about it?
I'm currently reading Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. I love the characters and the action, it's an amazing book.

What's your favorite childhood book?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was definitely my favorite.

Favorite and least favorite book you read this year (so far)?
My favorite book so far is Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson and least favorite is Bared to You by Sylvia Day.

How do you feel about reading or writing negative reviews?
I'm okay with reading negative reviews as long as it doesn't dissect every single part of a book. Some reviews like to point out small errors or focus on how much they hated a character or their actions or the way the author spins their story. I just remember that everyone has their own opinion and that what one person dislikes another may love.

I know you have a lot but if you had to narrow it down to one, who would be your very favorite book boyfriend? (Yes, I'm evil asking this one ;D)
This question isn't very fair to my other book boyfriends Steph but my favorite would have to be Jem Carstairs.

Favorite book to movie adaptation?
2011 version of Jane Eyre.

If you could ever have lunch with an author of your choice, who would it be and why?
Cassandra Clare because I love her Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series. I'd love to ask her about all things Shadowhunter and learn where she gets her ideas from.

Who is your favorite fictional villain?
Captain Hook.

What do you think makes a good book boyfriend?
A good book boyfriend has to be kind, loyal and strong. He must be a one woman kinda guy. He shouldn't take any crap from his girl or anyone else, he has to be proud of who he is and not afraid to show that.

Favorite book blogging moment you had?
I'm sure you can guess that one. My interview with Ace Remedy from the Oracle of Delphi series by Diantha Jones was quite an experience. He enjoyed talking about our secret society of cute bloggers and he was a lot of fun to have on my blog.
And now...
Lightning Round!
YA or Adult? YA.
Alpha Male character or Best Friend character? Best friend character.
Love triangle or Insta-love? Love triangle.
200 page books or 500 page books? 200 page books.
Physical book or ebook? Physical book.

Thank you again for doing this, Jenn. I appreciate it a lot! Happy reading to you! 
No problem Steph, I had a great time. Thanks for having me!

Cover Crush #6


Cover Crush is a new meme hosted on saturdays by Vyki @ On The Shelf where eye-catching covers get featured.




~Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) by Jeaniene Frost
Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages
Expected publication: March 26th 2013 by Avon

Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges...

Leila’s psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn’t sure what the future holds. If that weren’t enough, her lover Vlad has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she’s also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won’t admit that he loves her...

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity...


~Why I love this cover: 
Lately it seems like I only pick covers with men on them, but can you blame me? Look at this one!
I've been eagerly anticipating this cover for months. Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite writers and the covers of her books are always amazing, but damn, Vlad looks hot! I love the flames a lot. It fits Vlad perfectly, doesn't it? Burn baby burn! ;)
And the bat on the background is awesome too!

JF also gave us the stepback, so naturally I had to post it also. It looks so beautiful even when the author said she couldn't really see Vlad and Leila in that position but that it was close enough, which is just fine by me. :D
I love the lightning and orangy swirling colors , the trees on the background make everything fit together and of course Vlad and Leila together! Amazing! :]

Waiting On Wednesday #43: Altered by Jennifer Rush


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




~Altered by Jennifer Rush
Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: January 2nd 2013 by Little, Brown & Co.
When you can’t trust yourself, who can you believe?

Everything about Anna’s life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.

Anna is torn between following Sam or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities.

Now on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive, they must piece together the clues of their past before the Branch catches up to them and steals it all away.
