Can't-Wait Wednesday: High Voltage by Karen Marie Moning

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. It's based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.

High Voltage by Karen Marie Moning
Expected publication: March 6th 2018

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning returns with a pulse-pounding novel of immortal Faerie and ancient feuds, secrets and sacrifices, connected by a mythical, delicate red thread that binds special lives together in magical, mysterious, life-altering ways.

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, she's tough, hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, 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 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’d move the very stars for her—can save her this time…

I haven't even read Feversong yet (such a tragedy I know!) but High Voltage is about Dani so it's definitely high on my wishlist! I do hope I'll be able to read Feversong soon but other books keep coming in between and to be honest I'm slightly scared to read it. At least I have time until March... 

What do you think of this book? Let me know in the comments!


  1. If it can be of any consolation, I still have to try any of her books . . . Yet, I think this one sounds good and I really want to give her series a go!

  2. This cover is fabulous - I haven't read any of her books, but she is clearly an author I need to check out. Thank you for sharing. My Can't-Wait offering is a YA sci fi adventure set in contemporary Austin, Texas -
