This review contains lots of fucks, shits, angry gifs and spoilers. Consider yourself warned.Hey you! Fever fan! Over here. Hey, wanna know how my Friday night went? You do? It was fucking horrible. You wanna know why? You do? Because I’ve read Iced on Friday night, AND IT RUINED MY FUCKING LIFE. Good times, no?I’ve been waiting for Iced to be out for a year. I could not believe my eyes when I saw that KMM will continue the Fever series. I mean. Fever. ZOMG. Me loves Fever.And then Dani happened. Over four hundred pages of fourteen year old Dani. Annoying, immature, stab-worthy Dani and her fucking harem. Yes! There are three guys (so far) head over heels for our fourteen year old Dani. Two grown men and a teenage boy. I have nothing against Dancer, because this is the only character that makes sense in the whole fucking book, but Ryodan and Christian? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE???Insta-lust?? For a fourteen year old?? When you’re a fucking grown man?? What the fuck is wrong with you?I have two problems regarding this. First, I hate insta-lust. Second, she’s fourteen years old! Christian just sees her and decides she’s worth waiting for until she comes of age. And marry her. And fuck the shit out of her.Allow me demonstrate. Behold my fuck you compilation. Spoilers ahead me maties!(this is all coming from Christian, the character who I once admired and liked)"He knows she’s worth waiting for."Fuck you."Not for something worth waiting for. Not for a once-in-a-lifetime girl." Fuck you again."My girl is half naked and dying and I can’t get to her!" His girl?! Fuck you."But I’d cut the fucking moon out of the sky for her." Fuck you."She’s pale and still as death. It’s a disturbing turn-on." The fuck?? “Butt out of my virginity-losing plans! They’re none of your business.” “They’re my business and mine alone. But we don’t have to talk about them. Yet.” I’m in pain. In such terrible pain...aka Christian “saving” Dani from bleeding to death and offering her a bed and a sponge bath.And speaking of Pedobear, Ryodan wasn’t better off either. Ryodan wants to “hire” her because he can’t do a simple job by himself, even though he’s supposed to be a super duper advanced creature of sort. He abuses Dani without a second thought, fails to form even one logical idea, gets outsmarted by Dancer, a seventeen year old kid, and mostly acts like a douche all the time. What’s up with the attitude? Please don’t say that he’s doing it because he’s having a hard-on for Dani. Please.aka Ryodan’s torture sessions for making Dani sign the “contract”.I won’t pick on Dani because she’s a fourteen year old girl playing the superhero in an adult Urban Fantasy book. Enough said. But what I can pick on is KMM turning Dani into a veritable Mary Sue. She has all of the sudden captured the attention of all the male population in the city. Possibly the world. Happy fucking day.All I can say is that I can’t believe that this piece of shit is the continuation of Fever. I’m appalled. I had to skim the damn book in order to manage to finish it! A book belonging to the Fever series. Skimmed!Iced does not even come close to the previous Fever books. Not close! It felt like I was reading a stupid Young Adult book. Fucking Young Adult book full of sex, foul words and perverts who like to have dirty thoughts about minors. It just creeped me out. Really did.It’s torture. Pure torture.Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to have my eyes and brain replaced.NOTESThis book seems to be easier to read the second time around. You know, once you get used to all the awkward pedo moments. You get numb to that and the thing is pretty decent. Maybe that's why it's called Iced to begin with.Review also posted onGood Iced By Karen Marie Moning are Kindle 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 hFrom 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 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 , 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..

Good Book Iced How I felt about Ryo before reading this:How I feel about Ryo now:How I felt about Christian before reading this: How I feel about Christian now:I knew about the pedos going into this. It did not prepare me for the pedos in this. These are not alpha males. These are a bunch of creepy, rapey sociopaths. Their thoughts and insinuations towards the FOURTEEN YEAR OLD female lead were disgusting. Their words and actions towards the FOURTEEN YEAR OLD female lead were deplorable.And you know what really made me ragey? That I saw it. But Dani didn’t. This is a young woman raised on violence and bred by monsters. She hasn’t experienced enough human emotion to fully comprehend it. And because she’s still a child in so many ways, she doesn’t even understand what these degenerates are doing to her.We learned in the first five books of this series that Dani is transparent. We know that she uses her bravado like a shield. But the people that surround her are master manipulators. They see through her faulty disguise to the scared, lonely girl beneath. And they exploit the shit out of her. They use her loneliness against her. They try to make her feel needed, wanted, when really all they’re trying to do is control her. They talk dirty to her because they know that she so badly wants to be an adult, and adults have sex and talk dirty to each other all the time, right? In her mind, yes. Which they know. And use against her. Like everything else. When Dani realizes she’s being exploited and refuses to go along with their bullshit, they force her. They physically manhandle her into doing things, they mindfuck her into them, or they use her weaknesses against her and manipulate her into the same. And they lie to her about it. They make it seem like its Dani’s fault that they have to do these things to her. “I won’t ever hurt you unless you make me, Dani.” “Control your temper or you’ll kill her. You. We’re merely the weapon by which she’ll die.”These are just a few examples. They do it to her constantly. So fuck you, Ryo, you abusive asshole. Way to completely victimize a FOURTEEN YEAR OLD. You’re such a big bad man. The fact that this asshole is ALWAYS the one with the power was just the icing on the cake. Dani makes ALL the concessions. Instead of offering to help her do something, Ryo forces her to ask him. AND THEN WHEN SHE DOES, HE DOESN’T HELP HER. Instead of giving Dani a choice, he bullies her into things. Every interaction between them drove me bugfuck. I will never enjoy reading about someone breaking another person. And that’s really what this was. And before someone tries to tell me that there was a reason, that it was necessary because of things, lemme just call bullshit. Mac never had to break Dani. Mac was kind to her, built her up while teaching her lessons. And she got much better results than this mother fucker. It wasn’t all bad. I liked the plot. I liked the mystery and the action and the world. And I liked Dani. Even with the fecks and the dudes and the exclamation points. Even with the swagger and the conceit. I like her because I get her. I understand what makes her tick now, whereas in Fever she was just an annoying little shit. I especially liked how much she grew as a character from the beginning of this book to the end of it. If it hadn’t been for all the whatthefuckpedophilia and how much I hate Ryo and Christian even aside from that, I think I would have given this four stars. But because of it, I can’t. BECAUSE IT WAS FUCKING EVERYWHERE. JUST WHEN I THOUGHT SHIT WOULD CALM DOWN, SOMETHING FUCKING OOGY WOULD HAPPEN. Disappointment. I haz one.This review can also be found at The Alliterates.

  • My review ended up being a lot long winded than I d expected, hence the main points are in bold Iced was my 1 most anticipated release of 2012, and while it wasn t the biggest disappointment of the year, it comes close The beginning is extremely slow I was excited about being back in KMM s Dublin, but the joy wore off after a while and I wasn t nearly as captivated by this as I was by Darkfever Nothing seemed to be happening, the narration was dull, and I couldn t bring myself to care about Dan [...]

  • 5 stars7 5 2013 update a part of QA with KMM Q Is Dani older in BURNED A1 Crimeny, is it really all about sex Q Yes Now answer my question.A2 Although Dani is 14 at the beginning of BURNED, she does mature by the end of the book Someone asked if she would be 17 I said possibly.Q Will we get anyone else s POV in BURNED A Yes Among others, Mac is back Which means JZB is, too but don t expect his POV, LOL To those of you who insisted Mac and Barrons would never have let Dublin get iced because they [...]


  • Updated 12 26 14It actually left me wanting The book would have been much better without all the sexualizing an underage girl nonsense which I am pretty sure KMM regrets herself She must be tired of explaining why her heroes are not pedophiles Sorry to say, but they kind of are as they are written in this book Editing, editing Someone should have done some of it for Iced.As seen on The ReadventurerWhat is the quickest way to make your intended sexy book absolutely, irrevocably, totally unsexy [...]


  • I picked this book up a million times over the last 3 years before I was FINALLY able to finish it I reread the entire series in order to understand everything properly Honestly, she should have wrapped the series up in Shadowfever Dani was so bloody annoying the entire time, I mean ok, I can overlook that due to her being portrayed as a 14 year old, but does she have to be so fecking full of herself, Dani Mega O Malley, ugh And what is with literally everyone falling in love with Dani And Ryoda [...]


  • This is not really a review but of a reaction Let me be clear, I love how Karen Marie Moning from here on out referred to as KMM because Karen Marie Moning is simply too long to keep writing writes I enjoy the way she crafts characters and the world she builds KMM is able to write characters that even when I don t like them, I want to keep reading And that happened with Iced I wasn t invested in the story, I was mildly bored by the storyline but I still felt compelled to keep going There is jus [...]


  • So here it is The much anticipated spin off of the Fever series told from the point of view of Dani O Malley and carried on from almost exactly the point where Shadowfever finishes I have to say, as much as I wanted this to be good, I m actually surprised by how much I enjoyed the story and how much higher my opinion is of Dani after finishing it I ve read a few reviews from disappointed goodreaders but apart from one standout issue I thankfully do not share a lot of the concerns floating around [...]

  • While I knew I should have never gotten so excited about a book before reading it I just coudn t help doing exactly that I adored the fever series so much that the possibility of getting anything else from that world had me going crazy Probably the main reason for my disappointement.I was just SO SURE the heroine would grow on me now that she was getting her own bookI never really liked Dani and after reading this book I still don t She is barely a girl, not heroine material She is shallow, self [...]


  • 6 December 2015 1.99 on Kindle23 December 2014 update Because I said I could sum up everything important that happens in the book in a few short sentences and did in a comment below , I figured I d add it to my review Serious spoilers below for the entirety of the book view spoiler 1 Christian is turning into a UP with all the perverted thoughts and actions that one would expect to come with it.2 Cruce is fucking with the sidhe seers minds and dreams Trying to get them all to help him, to the ex [...]


  • 1 Somebody Please Kill Dani s Inner Voice StarsBefore I tell you about my experience with this book I should tell you that I DNFed it at 16% which was about 80 pages This book was TOO FREAKING LONG When I began this book I expected to hate it because of many reasons.a I don t like Dani s fecks and freakin fake bravado.b The oversexualisation of a barely 14yo girl isn t cool.c Having 2 older guys one of which is millenia old lusting after a kid is perverted but it s also way too far fetched and u [...]

  • Ignore what I said last night Sleep is a myth I will now continue anyway There are a few minor plot spoilers, but most of my discussion is about character reactions to Dani, so know that there will be a few small spoilers going into this review if you haven t read Iced If you haven t at least read the Fever series, I d say to tread with extreme caution.Death on her left.Devil on her rightd so begins the first chapter in the story of Dani O Malley s life.I was one of the people who was on the fen [...]



  • My life is so fecking interesting I almost can t stand it I absolutely adored this action packed sixth book of the series This story switches between three povs, including those of Christian, Kat the new head of the Abbey and Dani Each character s pov adds to this story and the big picture The writing in this book and the creativity was truly amazing and so much fun Dani Mega O Malley is a fifteen years old warrior who is extremely powerful and so fun to read I love the way she hops from foot to [...]


  • Really enjoyed it, KMM never fails to entertain me What an imagination Dani was a riot too, I loved her despite her only being 14 y o It s not a YA book though, she s just a young character very much in an adult world I had some strong issues about Dani s age and the romantic sexual references made toward her, but the core story was solid good.Dani at 14 A girl or a woman OR Something is randomly icing areas around Dublin and further out , and there doesn t appear to be anyway to track its next [...]


  • I m so happy to go back to this world I don t want to put up any spoilers Hope you all love it as much as me I m so excited that she is continuing the Fever series 5 books, yippee I d love to read about Ryodan TEASER 1 From Karen Marie Moning FB pageFour nights he s come to me, murmuring my name, making it an exquisite melody with which not even the divine orchestral choir of all the angels in heaven could compete He chimes my name in the language of the Unseelie and it makes my ears ring unti [...]

  • Actual rating 2.5 StarsI m saving you the trouble to read it, here s all you need to know to skip this one and go straight to Burned view spoiler Christian is changing into an Unseelie Prince and he s really into Dani, I m sure he almost said I want his virginity somewhere UGH Ryo took her because she s obviously something than just a human and he s a mercenary so he sees an opportunity there He also implied that she s gonna be an amazing woman in the future Dani is exactly what you saw in the [...]


  • Ooooooh.So.Yeah, this was pretty bad.The first problem is that this is not a YA book, but the main character is a young adult So you have an adult genre writer trying to make a YA character sound natural in an adult book In adult situations Except she doesn t.Doesn t sound like an adult.Doesn t sound like a young adult, either.Dani sounds like she was written by someone who has never been around a tweenager.Fourteen Riiiiight.My seven year old daughter doesn t sound that immature And, just so yo [...]

  • Seriously, what the fuck Aside from the rampant, rapey sexualization of a 14 year old by every man who comes into contact with her, the main character is annoying, and the writing style drove me crazy Ugh.



  • 4 Mega StarsFor Dani Mega O Malley and all the girls out there who want to grow up and be somebody s hero I glimpse things through the open doors of clubs that no fourteen year old should see But then, that s been the story of my life It s the year 1 AWC, a year after the walls between Faery and Earth crashed and the nightmare began We witnessed the Fall through Mac s eyes No we witness the consequences through Dani s and it s war and hell.Humans are dying, slayed and preyed upon by the Unseelie [...]
