Nov. Group Read: Iced by Karen Marie Moning

Vampire Book Club group readUsually our group read picks are the first in long-running series. It’s an excuse to start a new series and get out of the reading the just-released books. However, some books require exceptions. If our group read poll was any indication, every VBC reader is going to devour Iced by Karen Marie Moning this week.

We’re ready to go back to a fae-infested Ireland. We’re ready for more sidhe-seers, more dark fae, more Irish drama. Okay, probably also for more of the intense sexual tension Moning is known for, too. So, this month we’re reading the just-released Iced. Note: This book will spoil the Fever series. If you haven’t started those books, please read Darkfever first, lest you be spoiled like no other.

Are you in? Expect discussion questions up at the VBC Goodreads boards, and a spoiler free-for-all in the upcoming review’s comments section.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning comes the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban paranormal trilogy, set in the world of her 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.

    May want to mention that this book will spoil the ending to Moning’s Fever series if someone hasn’t read them. (If a person like that exist) If this imaginary person is real they might want to skip this months group read and start with Darkfever.

  2. Marina says:

    I’m in! Already bought it and starting tonight!

  3. I admit to being more than a bit concerned about a book all in Dani’s POV (her narration in Fever books 4 & 5 were my least fav parts of those books). Looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks.

  4. Shannon says:

    I am afraid to read this book, because there is someone out there that has not read the series yet. I just purchased the whole series. I plan on starting to read the series. I am hoping I can catch up. Before the month is over. I have heard it is a great series, so I am excited to start it but sad that I can.not read “Iced”yet. It will be hard not to read though because I am on my last class of graduate school and have to turn in my portfolio of over 43 papers which I have not finished writing yet, I am dying to start reading. I keep bribing my self that for every paper I finish writing i get to read for an hour. It will be a very hard month not being able to read as much as I do. I wil do my best to catch up though.
    Enjoy without me.

    I devoured this book. It is written from multiple povs, so it is not all Dani, she matures in terms of voice compared to the previous books, I find watching her and all the other characters evolution very interesting.

  6. Vicki says:

    I am SO enjoying this!

  7. Rae says:

    I’ve already finished this one! I couldn’t put it down. I was concerned initially because (like others) I wasn’t a huge fan of the Dani parts during the Fever series. But I was pleasantly surprised and I cannot wait to read the next installment! Karen Marie Moning is one of my all-time favorite authors.
