In Karen Moning's Iced, the 6th instalment in the Fever urban fantasy series, get ready to feel an arctic chill. Meet Dani "Mega" O'Malley, a 14-year-old teenage girl with super powers as a sidhe-seer. Her former best friend wants her dead, and Inspector Jayne from the police needs her sword, as a group of surly Unseelie princes want her banished too. Except for Christian MacKelter, who wants to make her his own. But first, something or something is freezing the people and places of Ireland to death. And it's up to Dani and Ryodan, the club's owner to figure it out before it goes any further. But he has her under his contract to abide by his rules and work in his club, when she rather be with her new best friend, Dancer. When she was frozen to death in the White Mansion, it was up to Ryodan and the others to save her life. But when she explored the mansion, she accidentally unleashed the Crimson Hag, who would pierce your guts with the shap knitting needles to finish her dress. With the Ice Monster and this other fiend in harm's way, it was up to Dani and the others to come up with a plan to stop the Hoar Frost King's tracks and send him packing to his own icy hell in a frosty climax.

This was a fantastic urban fantasy novel that would leave you chilled and breathless from start to finish. I really cared for Dani and her "dude-ness" to fight for the people in Dublin and to try to live a normal life. I did think Ryodan is a hoot and has his own plans for her, that he would rather not tell her about. I loved the characters and this imaginary world in a new Ireland with great scene-building and visuals for the locations and settings inside and outside. I really did care for Kat, who longs to be with her soul mate Sean, too. This would make you root for Dani and her super-heroic friends, cheer, whistle, sigh, gasp and cringe from time to time. It has non-stop action, drama, suspense, and intrigue to suck you in and leave you hanging on every page.

Will you be Iced today?
