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.

I didn’t realize I missed Dublin and Dani as much as I did.  Seriously, I was so happy to be taken back to this world.  The thoughts in my head were even in an Irish accent.  Seriously y’all, I may have problems. 😛
I always forget how young Dani really is.  She has to deal with major ish, but she’s still just a baby. I do love that she stands up for herself, no matter how big and bad the person bullying her is.  That brings me to Ryodan.  I never realized how much he reminds me of Barrons, when we first met him.  I mean seriously, dude is a D bag sometimes.  I was so excited we get to see Christian again, but he’s totally not the same.  He’d have ok moments, and then I’d want to knock the hell out of him.  I love Dancer (not sure if his name is spelled right since I listened to this book.)  He’s charismatic, and I think wold be a good match for Dani.  He’s also incredibly intelligent.
Iced is fast paced, and fun to listen to.  Even in the darker moments, Dani has a way of bringing humor to the forefront.  It’s also fun seeing Dani and Ryodan interact.  I don’t think he’s met anyone that isn’t scared to push his buttons.  We get a small peak at Mac & Barrons.  I’m hoping we see a little more of them as the series progresses.
