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.
Firstly, this is just me wondering...Do you people listen to The Red Hot Chili Peppers? Yes? No? Well you see I was a huge fan years ago (still am, but not to that extend) and there is that song that goes Dani the girl is singing songs to me...well lemme tell you, this Dani the girl is telling me a hell of a story here.
While Mac grew on me during the course of the previous 5 books, I must say that I'm happy to see Dani leading it now. It's just that I experienced with her something I never did with Mac, but Dani and I connected right away. I really loved her quirky sense of humor and the way she sees the world. It might be silly and stupid to some, but dudes if I was 14 and having that power I'd be thinking highly of myself too. Speaking about her age and some scenes in this book, well it didn't bother me so of course I found an excuse. First is that, let's face it Dani was never a kid to start with, and with the condition that the world is here, well things changed, A LOT.
Only thing I'd add is Moning, this was really CRUEL. I couldn't breathe for fecking 30 pages of this book. I turned pages like a maniac and not even I knew I could read that fast. So let's not do that again! Cause, DUDE! I nearly had a heart attack.
Now, I'm grabbing a spot in line for Burned! Don't hate me cause I didn't have to wait for as long as some of you did, but we'll be best buddies in line while we wait for the 8th book. Right! (I can make a hell of a Turkish coffee. I'll just leave it here...)
Rating: 5 stars.
Until the next time,
