"I make a discovery that totally blows...dying is the easy part.
It's coming back to life that sucks."
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.
Moning returns to the heady world of her Fever series, addictive and consistently surprising... The best elements of Moning's sensual, shadowy epic are still here, from the sensual and enigmatic Fae, to the super alpha-heroes and the breathless pace of their escalating conflicts. At its heart is a heroine whose development is likely to become the stuff of legends as this unforgettable, haunting series continues to evolve.

This is one of my favorite 2012 reads... It's engaging, hilarious, amazing and Dani is going to be one heck of a woman.
Excellent storytelling...characters that are rendered both superhuman and superbly human, with emotional fragility and psychological vulnerability in an unstable world fraught with danger...Fast-paced, with nonstop action set in a fascinating urban fantasy world of Dublin under siege, this is a smart, bold and textured success.
Moning is a master storyteller. I don't know how she does it, but she begs me to get on my knees and pay worship to the woman who has brought me the best, most labyrinthine stories and characters I've ever had the privilege to get to know. She weaves brilliantly, unapologetically, and without exception, and she has threaded the needle into me and I've been pulled, over and over, into her tapestry, and I don't think I'm ever getting out. Iced is no exception.

An exciting opening of a new Fever saga...Reader will enjoy that the prime Fever cast plays major roles and the introduction of two new unique dangerous Fae who widen the mythos.

[Moning] has always managed to give me everything I want in a book... Iced will not disappoint.
~Open Book Society
We get edge of your seat action and danger. We get the promise of so much more to come. All in all, this is an excellent start to Dani's trilogy.
~Scandalicious Book Reviews
Of course, I ended up loving this book. Just like I love everything [Moning] writes.
~Fiction Vixen Book Reviews
Iced just may be my favorite book of the year. Terrifyingly addictive, Karen Marie Moning has ruined me for any other author or book out there. Introducing Dani to an audience who are so passionate about the series was a risk, yet Moning has proven time and again that she is one of the premier authors of Urban Fantasy. ICED is an absolute must read!
~Under the Covers Book Blog
It cannot be denied. Karen Marie Moning can build a world like no other Urban Fantasy author I have ever read. She completely reels me in. Captivates me. Enthralls me. Makes me go without sleep to find out what happens next. She did it with her original five Fever books and she has done it again here, with her first Dani O'Malley spinoff.
~Red Hot Books
Mega’s joie de vivre leaps off the pages and her witty dialogue will have you grinning from ear to ear. Karen Marie Moning’s writing has no equal in the world of Urban Fantasy; the Fever universe feels like an alternate reality instead of just a fictional one. KMM has ruined me for all other books and authors because once you’ve had filet mignon it’s hard to go back to ground beef.
Iced was phenomenal and fecking fantastic! It was sexy, dangerous and Karen Marie Moning managed to create a 14-year-old voice that is unlike anything I have ever read. It’s definitely not a young adult novel, even though Dani is so young. It’s every bit of hot, sexy, dark and dangerous as her previous novels and I am excited to be back in this world!!!
