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 by Karen Marie Moning
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It was so awesome! Dancer is the shit and I really hope Dani stops being a pussy and talk to Mac! If she did she'd realize that Mac has forgiven her and knows that Rowena used her mojo to make Dani kill her sister. I love Mac and Dani together and Dani really needs Mac...she's like the mother/sister she's never had. She needs structure in this mad mad world.
Also....I really feel bad for Christian. Mac really fucked up when she gave him Unseelie...even though she believed she was saving his life. Poor Christian needs to not blame Mac for his condition she not known what she was doing. I really hate what he's becoming! He was really one of my favorite side characters and now he's a depraved, pedo-Unseelie Prince in transition and I loathe it. Since I listened to this on audio, it was quite disturbing hearing his inner monologue when thinking of 14year old Dani....wtf!
In addition....Alls I can say is RYODAN!! You can summon me to your office and bend me over your desk Any. Time. I daresay I'm leaning toward Ryo over Barrons....never though I would EVER feel that way but there it is in black and white. He's so much more feral and wild and I. Dig. It....fo sho!
All in all, I loved every second of this book! Fantastic start to a series which I always new it would be! Karen Marie Moning is one of the most talented authors in this genre...probably all genres. I'm fucking DY-ING to read the next book in this series. Hopefully Dani inadvertently grows up a couple of years cuz call me crazy, but I want some kind of down n dirty moment with her and Ryodan. I really like Dancer and all but he's more of her best friend and/or someone for her to experiment with...although Ryodan and Christian will probably kill him....tehee! Great book, awesome on audio, I love Dani more now....didn't think I would, but there it is.

Welcome to my stop in the Soul Avenged Blog Tour! I must say that I'm super excited to introduce one of the male leads in this fantastic debut!
Meet Kane Walker
Breed: Halfling (half human, half lycan)
In his words:
Talk about shit luck … imagine leaving work one night only to find yourself in a stand-off with not one, but two eight foot tall half-breed, psychotic wolf wannabes, with maws set wide enough to tell you a story about razor sharp teeth just itching to tear through flesh. And that’s just the beginning... You wake up in a house full of demons whose sole existence is to effectively eliminate your kind from the planet without getting blood on their polished leather boots.
Yeah, welcome to Kane’s World, the twisted carnival of freaks, where you get your neck devoured and score a ticket to everlasting hell on earth.
On the up side, the female tormenter’s pretty hot and likes to parade around in skin-tight leather, dishing blue balls like a stripper at bible camp. Too bad I’ve always been more of a sensitive lover, preferring a soft caress over a bitch slap across the face while my hands are cuffed to a bedpost all hours of the day. I’m not one to complain though. Hell, being held captive in a mansion of demons, ghouls and hellhounds does have its perks—time off work, lack of sensation in your limbs and nice break from normalcy.
Excerpt from Soul Avenged:
The door to the landing clicked, swinging inward, and Annabelle appeared, tray in hand, as usual.
“Shit!” Kane grabbed his slacks off the floor and held them up to shield his lower half.
“Oh, my!” Annabelle exclaimed, a frisky smile on her face.
The door to the bathroom opened, and Ayden stepped out, wearing a robe and drying her hair with a towel. Her gaze shifted left to right—to Annabelle’s face, Kane hiding his briefs. She glanced down at her robe, and Kane caught the flush of her cheeks.
“Annabelle,” he said, “this … isn’t …”
“No, I’m very sorry to interrupt.” A hiccup of laughter escaped Anna as she set the tray down on the bedside table.
“Anna, seriously, we didn’t do anything.” Ayden tugged the ties of her robe a little tighter.
“No need to explain, miss.” Her coy smile suggested otherwise as she hobbled toward the door in one of the fastest exits Kane had seen from her yet.
“Oh, that’s just great.” Ayden threw the brush onto the chair. “We’ll be on the National Enquirer by the time this friggin’ day is over. Do you know how much shit those guys are going to give me? And it’s all your fault.”
“My fault? You’re the one who decided to shower here. Doesn’t this palace have another bathroom somewhere in its fifty rooms?”
Her eye twitched. “What are you suggesting? That I showered here to give you some kind of peep show?”
“I wouldn’t suggest anything of the sort.” Kane threw his palms up as he spoke. “I just think it’s a little odd that you chose to shower in my bathroom, is all.”
“Your bathroom? Are you feeling all warm and cozy here?”
“Absolutely not. I wouldn’t dream of getting comfortable. That might upset the ice princess. And we wouldn’t want her to get upset.”
Her eyes narrowed on him. “Piss off.”
“Go to hell.”
Her hands shot to her hips. “I’ve been in hell ever since you showed up.”
“Oh …” Kane’s expression softened with amusement. “… I think hell welcomed you a long time ago, baby.”
“How dare you call me baby, you filthy wolf.”
She leaned forward. “Same damn thing, moron.”
Kane leaned in as well. “Actually, it isn’t. According to Annabelle, lycans can transform into any animal.”
“So, you’ve been getting chatty with Annabelle, have you?” She drew away from him. “Save your breath, she isn’t going to cry for you when I rip out your throat.”
“Oh, now you’re ripping my throat out? The other day you were severing my head from my spine.” He faked a grin. “Which is it, so I know what to wear that day?”
Ayden groaned. “God, you make me want to … to kill something.”
“Yeah, funny, I was never a violent person, myself, until I met you. I suddenly know how you feel.”
Her tone turned challenging. “Then do it.”
“Try to kill me, wolf,” she said, nodding. “See what happens.”
“I wouldn’t think of hitting a woman.”
Irritation flickered in Ayden’s eyes. Her fingers flexed at her sides. “Too bad because this woman constantly thinks of hitting you!” She swiped the brush from the chair and chucked it across the short distance.
Toward Kane’s head.
Giving less than a soft grunt at the impact, Kane raised his hand to his temple, where blood trickled out of a small cut from the metal prongs. “You’ve got the maturity of a toddler, you know that?”
Out of nowhere, her fist connected with his jaw. His face jerked with that one, and a growl ripped from his throat, the shift in his perception warning his eyes had turned.
She grinned, beckoning him with a flick of her wrist. “That’s it. Come on. Come get me, lycan.”
Something inside of Kane flowed like a current; it exploded, releasing a rush of pure adrenaline.
He lurched forward.
Her leg swung so quick he hardly had time to comprehend the blow to his stomach.
She followed it up with another thrust to the chest that sent him flying across the bed.
Pouncing on top of him, she straddled his body. Nails dug into his arms held at either side of his head.
Her strength was incredible. The animal inside of him yearned to rip her to pieces because of it, to revel in the victory of conquering it—conquering her.
Yuumm....thats just the tip of the iceburg for those two! You've gotta check out this one...its a must read for sure! Check out my review of Soul Avenged and don't forget to stop by the other stops on the tour and check out what else is in store!
