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.

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.
