I planned to write a detailed review of Karen Marie Moning’s Iced for this blog.
However, I participated in a round-table discussion post over at Heroes & Heartbreakers before I had finished the book. I was sure that I would have more to say about the novel by the time I finished. Here’s the thing, I still feel just as strongly about what works and what doesn’t in Iced as I did for the Heroes & Heartbreakers post.
Instead of rehashing it here, I’d like to invite you to visit the H&H Weighs in on Karen Marie Moning’s Iced post. I suggest this for a few reasons. There are polarizing reactions to this book. Many people were won over by Dani as a lead character and just as many found her voice utterly grating (I fall into the latter camp).
If you don’t have time for the big post, here’s the short version: Moning’s writing is brilliant. The plot works, the male characters are addictive and Dani makes me crazy (it’s hard for me to accept this adult story from the voice of a 14-year-old, even if it’s a very well-done character).
