Purplegipsy's raiting: 4 of 5 stars
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.
What the feck happened to Jo and Christian? Because of this parts, this is not a five star book especially part of Jo where is your backbone girl, did she under kind of spell or something? I didn't like the idea of Jo and Ryo. This is irritating I'm really sad and sick to my stomach for Jo. I get it Jo-Ryo, Fio-Barrons stuff going on but Jo was different. I imagine her story much more different not some silly-sappy-girl-in love-big-bad-handsome-boy story. She is not a doormat but she is act like a doormat!! This part is disappointing and frustrating and bad just so bad that boink scene in office gawdd just awfull. I am going to pretend thats really not happened like JZB sex scene -this is not happening I'm not reading it-
Christian you lunatic, I know you becoming prince fecked up your head but what the hell is all about wedding, bride, love, obssesion toward of dani when this happened? This was really weird I hope Christian change in a good way. btw I love Dancer. That was a suprise but good suprise. I imagine much more different type but I love this type to and I'm pretty sure Dani and Dancer is going to hook up, hope Ryo doesn't kill Dancer because of this ;) Kat, other sidhes and Cruce part is not so good too.
