Carmel: Ooh geez, do I really have to pick just one? LOL Well, I’ve already read and reviewed Black Lament by Christina Henry and The Shattered Dark by Sandy Williams so at least that helps me narrow things down a bit! I recently started Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series and I’m really enjoying it but I still have two more books to go before I’m ready to tackle Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet.
So… by process of elimination I’d have to go with Iced by Karen Marie Moning. I got hooked on the Fever series last year and ended up reading them all pretty much back-to-back; I’ve been wanting more ever since. Although, I must admit that I am approaching this spin-off series with some trepidation because the main character is a teenager so I can’t help but worry that this novel might be too YA for me. Fingers crossed that Moning does not disappoint!!
#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning picks up where Shadowfever leaves off with Iced, the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban paranormal trilogy set in the world of the 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.

If I had Iced, I would definitely read it first (and then probably re-read it).
Iced is totally my first choice too! I love the Fever series too. Like you, I’m hoping the spinoff isn’t too YA…
I’m reading Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet now and then I’ll be reading ICED after my friend is finished with it 🙂
From Karen’s FB page: “Guys, ICED is NOT Young Adult. Dani ages during the next three books of the Fever Series. Yes, there’s sex. I like writing about sex. I always write about sex. No, 14-year old Dani doesn’t have sex. Other people do. Nor does 14 -year old (at the start of the trilogy) Dani make it a book by or for a 14 year old. I promise you all the magic you’ve come to expect from the Fever World. I don’t write YA. This series isn’t YA.”
I am reading Iced right now. I have like 100 pages to go and I am loving it. I will finish it tonight after the kiddies go to bed.
