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.
First let me just say that I have had such a hard time writing a review for this one.  I have no idea why this is so hard because I loved this book.  I adore this whole series.  I usually put a lot of detail into my reviews but this one is just going to be short and sweet.

Iced was a great book however to me it read a bit more like a young adult than I was expecting.  Dani is a 14 year old girl who has made it her priority to save her beloved city of Dublin after the walls fell that kept our world and Faerie apart.

Dani finds herself in the middle of an investigation to find out what is causing places to get iced around her city.  She finds tons of action and fun but mostly trouble this time around.

And oh my gosh I had forgotten how much this author loves cliffhangers.  If you want this book to end with a satisfying ending then stop right before the final chapter.

I can not wait to read the next book in the Fever series.  I think we will be seeing a lot more of Mac and Barrons in the next book.
