This book seems to be a regurgitation of Mac's story when it comes to the romance and other parts of the story... however I feel like there is some kiddie porn in how a fourteen-year-old is being monopolized and lusted after by men much older than she is. The stupidity of the characters is also very annoying. While I read the whole book; I was not thrilled by it. Seemed rather flat and dragged on and on.

Book 6 of Fever series, preceded by Shadowfever and followed by Burned. This is the 1st book of Dani's Trilogy. It follows where Shadowfever ended. Dani is a fourteen year old girl with superpowers - fast freeze-framing and killing fae with her handy sword. She is fun, fearless and quite intelligent. She is so full of life - that she shines like the brightest star - no wonder everyone likes her. She is still very young and I hope in the next book, she gets to grow up a bit. I like the whole book; the "so called" loved interests are quite interesting and I wonder who KMM will chose to stick around and win Dani's heart. I have a feeling it might be Ryodan - but I just find him too controlling and cold & I don't like how he treats Dani or Jo. I really like Dancer - I hope he has a secret identity hidden somewhere. I also like Christian - I hope his real self comes back - I miss him.

Hated this book. Don't like Dani O'Malley the least little bit - I find her character obnoxious, abrasive, and useless. I also don't like how she was basically enslaved and how a fourteen year old is being lusted after by people much older than she is. The stupidity of the other humans characters is also annoying. Not reading anymore of this nonsense.

For a novel set in Dublin (Ireland, not Iowa) there is a dearth of Irish names. This includes the "Fever" series.

i liked it, and wasn't sure that I would have

Sometimes a subsequent series doesn't live up to the original but this one certainly does! Moning's writing pulls you in and doesn't let go. I couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next book. I think Moning fans will be happy with this next series.

Great read. Plenty of action and adventure, but has Dani really matured or learned a lesson? Would have given it five stars except for the ending.

This novel satifies my urge for more of the world Moning created in the Fever series. It was easier to relate to Mac because she was an adult and didn't begin as a "superhero", but I think Dani can easily take her on for spunk and likability. I am loving her interactions with Ryodan, Christian, and Dancer. I suspect Dani will probably be visiting some Fae realm in a future installment and come back aged (to overcome the icky 14 year old with multiple suitors issue). Fun times to be had with this bunch for sure.

This whole world KMM has created is just awesome. If you're just starting her books, I strongly suggest you start at the beginning of the Fever series. Dani's story is fecking great :) Some people may be put off by the few sexual innuendos that are in the book (Dani is only 14), but you have to keep in mind she's been on her own a long time and her 14 is much different than our 14. And while KMM gets really close to crossing the line, they are just sexual hints at this point of what could be in store for Dani as she grows into a woman. There will be 2 more Dani stories (I cannot wait!) and then KMM will return to Mac and Barrons.
