Now answer my question. Someone asked if she would be I said possibly. Among others, Mac is back! Do you write about pedophiles?
I write about life. I write with verisimilitude. I write about men who look at a year old superhero woman-child who is also an assassin—where is the moral outrage over that? Priorities, the UK would say, get some and can see the women she will become one day. I write about men who will do anything to keep her alive long enough to become it—even knowing they may never be the one lucky enough to get her.
I write about men who know that being gentle and making pleasant requests of a young woman who is stronger, faster, smarter and has more balls than pretty much everyone on the planet would be as effective as trying to chisel a sculpture from stone using feathers. Ryodan never lusts over Dani. Dancer never lusts over Dani. Not turns him on. Charms him. Do they have hard dicks? The 9 and death-by-sex Fae always have hard dicks.
The wind blows. They breathe. I was 13 when I first noticed a man looking at me like he wanted to have sex with me. How old were you? I was becoming a woman.

Dani is an odd duck: She gets the actions, not the emotions. Part of what may have been difficult for any readers who felt disturbed by the way I wrote the characters in ICED is this: I have always given my reader a way in to the men, a heroine through which the reader could connect on a sexual and romantic level to the Alpha males I write. I gave you no mature eyes through which to experience romance of which there is none yet.
Stay with me. Keep the faith. Well, stop it! Regarding Dani's age As to her age Well, a few more years would make me more comfortable, but what is a few years compared to forever? It's just there's a limit in our mind from which age and with what age difference sex is appropriate. Even if Dani was 10 years older Ryodan would be millenia older than her. The only thing different would be her maturity, which thanks to the society, world falling apart and her childhood is way ahead our average and what we think of as 14, 15, year-olds girls into boys, makeup, parties and school.
Those few years It's all in our heads. Most of the comments people have been making have been in the vein of A few years could've passed It would be easier if Dani was at least And so on. I'm not saying the hypothetical thought doesn't bother me. It does. But thinking about everything going on I'm 18 and I've never lived through anything like Dani has well I did live through a war, protests and stuff, but I was 5 and younger then.
I probably have much less life experience than she has. She has been living on her with death around her for 5 years, people. Mac from the first book was probably much more naive and unready for a romantic relationship with a supernatural being. I don't know what a few years would've changed but fit Dani in our view of an Adult and Not jailbait.
I don't think it would've changed her much. You can say: My daughter's fifteen and she's not But, there is a difference in circumstance, Girls used to marry when 14, They had kids. I'm not saying that's ok, now, things are different.
I do understand how and why this is a problem to many I, too would like to see Dani a bit older before any actual sex scene, so I'm hung up too , I just think we should try to see things from a different POV. Dani's POV. Are we really so used to that in fiction it doesn't touch us anymore?
Original review Each book, no matter how good, bad or indifferent teaches you something. This one showed me I could totally argue with self from a different time. Me prior to Iced: Oh, but this is all soooo cool Prior: I mean she's a kid, and all the men, some of them immortal fighting over her.
That's just wrong During: Oh, she's so clueless, how sweet. I wonder who'll she fall in love with Prior: Who gives a damn, she sounds I'm not sure I can like this book. This book is awesome So, other than teaching me to be schizophrenic, "Iced" was just so fun! I thought I'd have a problem adapting to Dani's voice and language and stuff based on the sliver we got of it in Shadowfever , but I ended up liking her a lot.
Yes, she is young and hormonal and so damn stubborn and impulsive, but she's still easy to connect with, somehow. She embraces life like no character I've read about before. She takes everything as it comes and fights for everything she believes in with everything she's got. No half measures with Dani. Also, we see her growing up a bit at a time. Yes, she already has a lot of life experience, but she learns to take care with her words and actions: Never looking back.
Never seeing what happens around or behind me. These new eyeballs see my wake. Boats capsized. People flailing in the waves. Yes, I did. But I found it strange that people didn't worry or that it didn't bug them nearly enough to think about Dan killing and risking her life since the age of 9 than it did to think about men being potentially interested in her.
All I'm going to say is: Right and cool and KMM has an amazing gift. Here's something that made me feel a little better about the matter. Waves are banal. Tsunamis reshape the Earth. Under the right circumstances, even entire civilizations. After a few years, of course. At least until she's 16 or 17? And Dancer Well, he's 17 kind of geeky, smart, cute and her best friend. That's ok, too. About the guys. I don't know why, but I expected Ryodan to be like a version of Barrons.
Kind of like Barrons 2. He's not, really. Yes, the tendencies are there. Manipulative, looking straight ahead, getting what he wants at every cost. But he goes about it differently.
He's more polished, looks more human? But he's not, really. Anyway, there were a few comparisons made and a few descriptions of him: Pure lawless beast. Not so Ryodan. He is what he is. It ebbs. It flows. You ride it. Well, I kind of feel like he's already lost. We saw his POV a few times, and while he still has some human urges and shows flashes of, well, sanity, I grieve for the old Christian. Now, it's like he's wild. And not in a way that felt good to me. Although he genuinely cares for Dani and did some cool things.
Dancer's a boy I would really like in RL. He's just interesting and smart and a great person and friend. And obviously in love with clueless Dani. I swear things just fly over her head. And I'm not annoyed by that.
Yay, KMM! What also flies over her head are innuendos. Seriously, I love those moments. And they makes it more tangible and realistic. The world kept on spinning and we are now in the world after the Wall came down. Trouble is still brewing, Unseelie still there to be slayed, big, bad WTF monsters out to destroy what's left of the world. I found this interesting.
In stories when there's an ending there's always the: After Shadowfever there was that for me. Not just because of the walls, but everything.

It's still messed up, with problems and dangerous. There are always consequences. And Bad guys don't always go away. One thing I would've liked: Really, glimpses are not enough when it comes to these two. Especially the big bad. I have a hunch, though, that we'll be seeing more of them in the next book. There are a lot of threads to be continued, so I can't wait for it to get out! And finally a few more quotes, snippets of conversations I found the funniest and the most interesting: Ryodan and Dani: It's just the way Dani reacts and acts with him and he with her.
Could be wrong, though. She cares about Dancer, too, to whom I hope nothing bad happens. As I said, just a feeling. Like the feeling I have that Dani is not just human and Dancer is a lot more than he seems.
Not a huge one, but a cliffhanger all the same. Or better said, like someone cut off the power while you were in the middle of the movie.
Everything stopped just as you were getting to the great part, and not when the actor was about to die. That kind of cliffhanger. I think. And hope: D ETA 2. Just one more thing: She acts and thinks older than her age most of the time, so this makes it more real.
The more excited I get, the more I vibrate. I poke one of my shoulders toward him. It feels really cool. Why you looking at him? View all 79 comments. Aug 26, Tatiana rated it liked it Recommends it for: The book would have been much better without all the sexualizing-an-underage-girl nonsense which I am pretty sure KMM regrets herself.
She must be tired of explaining why her heroes are not pedophiles. Sorry to say, but they kind of are as they are written in this book. Editing, editing! Someone should have done some more of it for Iced. As seen on The Readventurer What is the quickest way to make your intended sexy book absolutely, irrevocably, totally unsexy? Karen Marie Moning has the answer for you - just have your "heroes" act like abusive pedophiles, who love perving all over a scrawny, barely year old girl, have them tell dick jokes around her, crawl into her bed when she is unconscious, lick her and wax poetically about her panties, sexualize this underage girl in every which way, and voila!
Now, I am not going to pretend that I didn't know Moning wasn't exactly a PC writer when it comes to treatment of women - Mac had her share of atrocious, abusive things done to her by a slew of men, including her life mate, in the Fever books, but at least she was a grown-up and could fight back physically, sexually and emotionally. Dani is a child! I seriously question Moning's judgment here. She is definitely no Nabokov to take on a subject so controversial and make something good out of it.
She should have stuck to what she knows best and let us, her fans, enjoy a book that is entertaining and fun rather than the one that unnecessarily and thoughtlessly pushes boundaries and makes us gag in the meantime.
What makes me the most annoyed is that the way Iced is plotted, there isn't actually a reason for Dani to be so young and for the story not to take place 5 or even 10 years in future. As the novel opens, post-wall-crash Dublin is in an even more dire situation than at the end of Shadowfever. Not only is our world infested by fae, but something weird is freezing and icing the whole areas of Dublin and beyond. It seems, Ryodan learns first about the ice problem and then decides to recruit Dani to help him investigate it, and does so by quite literally torturing and blackmailing her.
Don't ask me why a millenia-old man with a gang of friends, equally old, smart and experienced in many things fae and human, even needs a help from a teenager.
I still don't get it. So, having no choice, Dani starts investigating, with assistance from her friend Dancer, a year old science geek and the only non-creepy male in the whole story. Lurking about is a pedo fairy Christian, who suddenly and unexpectedly acquires a very unhealthy sexual obsession with Dani. I personally wasn't that impressed with the first half of Iced. First, there is too much recapping of the Fever story and mythology and second, naturally, too much uncomfortable sexualization of Dani, done mostly by the mega-creep Christian.
As far as the mystery of Iced goes, I'd say it's of an average quality for urban fantasy. The new bits of mythology are interesting, but the plot is not as elaborate and twisty as that in the Fever series.
However, the second part is a tad livelier and less offensive or maybe I just got used to the grossness of it all by then? That's where the investigation really gets going, we learn more about Dani's past, we see how Cruce is plotting his escape and how Christian's transformation into an Unseelie Prince is progressing, and, most importantly, Christian's sick POV is scaled back.
In this second part he is presented in a sort of humorous way, because once we no longer have to be in his head filled with thoughts of sex and odes to his hard member so much, from Dani's POV he is just a pathetic and often laughable psycho. With that said, I honestly don't know if I can actively recommend Iced. While reading it, I spent too much time trying to imagine Dani was older, so that I didn't have to feel so revolted all the time.
But then, judging by the multitude of 5-star reviews of this book, there is a HUGE portion of women who have absolutely no problem with the blatant pedophilia in this book. It's astonishing, really, just how many don't really think anything of it at all, "as long as Dani doesn't actually have sex with anyone.
I will probably read the sequel. Aug 26, Regina rated it did not like it Shelves: This is not really a review but more of a reaction. I enjoy the way she crafts characters and the world she builds. KMM is able to write characters that even when I don't like them, I want to keep reading.
And that happened with Iced. I wasn't invested in the story, I was mildly bored by the storyline but I still felt compelled to keep going. There is just something about the way she writes her stories. There is absolutely no way that it is ever acceptable for a 14 year old girl to turn into a romantic or sexual object. Sexualization of girls is rampant in our culture and the girls themselves feel the pressure to rise up and meet this standard. I have a 13 year old, she plays on a soccer team with 13, 14 and 15 year olds.
I have gotten the pleasure of hanging out with the team, watching my husband coach them and listening to their conversations. Let me make this clear, a 14 year old is still a child. As I read this novel, I kept remembering my daughter and her soccer teammates -- their silly conversations, their reactions to situations and my understanding that they are still children.
There is no question that Dani is still a child. I have read the arguments against the idea that Dani is a child by saying that she survives, she kills to survive and well I strongly disagree.
Many children all over the world have had to do horrible things just to survive, this doesn't mean that because they can survive they should then be sexually harassed and the object of sexualization by much older men with enormous power.
And as if the situation wasn't bad enough, I believe Dani is emotionally immature for her age. KMM writes Dani as if she is emotionally younger than Dani refers to herself in the third person. She considers herself a superhero. She has immature aspirations for herself. She is unable to handle consequences and face up to her actions e. And a further example that Dani is absolutely not ready to be the object of two older men's sexual attention is that As the story is written, Dani is repeatedly uncomfortable with either Christian's or Ryo's advances.
Dani is uncomfortable with the idea of sex in real life and very uncomfortable with any nuanced sexual comment. I keep wondering, hoping and praying that what is happening here is that we are supposed to be disgusted with Ryo and Christian.
That Dani is reacting negatively to them and following her instincts because the storyline is NOT going toward a perverted older man who gets off on children. Please let it be like that. And what happened to Christian? I have an extreme soft-spot for the MacKeltars. Christian was always my favorite in the Fever series yes I liked him even more than Barrons, not necessarily for Mac, but just as a male character. I know that KMM has the right as the author to do what she wants with any of her characters, but I just don't buy into what is happening to Christian.
I don't accept that the MacKeltars wouldn't be tracking him down. And what is really eating at me about the entire Christian storyline is that it is so similar to what happened to Dageaus in the Dark Highlander except that it was better done in the Dark Highlander.
One more thing, I don't accept that Ryo is stronger and perhaps more clever than Barrons. So anyway, there is my take on Iced and I doubt if I will read the next one in the series. View all 67 comments. Nov 10, Hira rated it it was ok Shelves: I reread the entire series in order to understand everything properly.
Honestly, she should have wrapped the series up in Shadowfever. Dani was so bloody annoying the entire time, I mean ok, I can overlook that due to her being portrayed as a 14 year old, but does she have to be so fecking full of herself, Dani "Mega" O'Malley, ugh.
And what is with literally everyone falling in love with Dani? And Ryodan's non-question mark questions got on my nerves. It looked like they were trying to recreate Barrons and Mac through Ryodan and Dani, but just coming off as pedophilic. To be honest, the plot wasn't really interesting either along with these character's annoyances.
It wasn't as developed and elaborate as was the case with Sinsar Dubh, but even more so didn't really make sense, with the "sonic boom" and shit.
Probably the only really interesting part was the Crimson Hag and the only reason I want to even read the next book is to find out what happened with that. View all 7 comments. Aug 26, Emily May rated it really liked it Shelves: The much-anticipated spin-off of the Fever series told from the point of view of Dani O'Malley and carried on from almost exactly the point where Shadowfever finishes. I have to say, as much as I wanted this to be good, I'm actually surprised by how much I enjoyed the story and how much higher my opinion is of Dani after finishing it.
I've read a few reviews from disappointed goodreaders but - apart from one standout issue - I thankfully do not share a lot of the concerns float So I've read a few reviews from disappointed goodreaders but - apart from one standout issue - I thankfully do not share a lot of the concerns floating around. And I am very excited for the next installment, even more so because Moning's claim in an interview that this book doesn't finish with a cliffhanger is basically a complete lie.
Okay, let's start with Dani. She's still as bratty as ever and loves to throw around words like "dude" and "feck", but KMM followed through on her promise that her "voice" wouldn't be as loud and in-your-face in this because she is the main character and didn't need to be quite so colourful in order to stand out.
And I actually really like her. Any annoyance I felt for her in the past quickly gave way to amusement at her snarky quips and the occasional head shake at her crazy naivete. However, I think Moning will need to develop her character throughout the next two books and allow her to mature or her tendency to go rushing arrogantly into every situation will become frustrating. As for the story, I really enjoyed the mystery in Iced and the solving of it was quite an adventure.
Basically, Ryodan "asks" for Dani's help in finding out what is causing seemingly random venues and places to become iced over, freezing anyone in the vicinity, and eventually exploding afterwards. Several characters are pulled into this mess and tensions are high as the whole city of Dublin becomes threatened by the possibility of being entirely frozen over. On top of all this chaos, Christian MacKeltar has become an Unseelie prince and developed a strange obsession with Dani.
Contrary to a few other GR members' opinions, I did not find this book particularly romance-y at all. There was quite a bit of male-posturing going on, but at the end of this book I'm still unsure who KMM intends the main love interest to be. Every time I think I've made my mind up, somebody else does something that makes the novel kind of favour them.
But I like this, it's not a love triangle or love anything because nothing like that has happened yet, but I'm not filled with the same certainty that two characters will end up together like I usually am in paranormal novels with romance in them.
However, this does kind of lead straight on to the thing that made me cringe slightly okay, a lot Dani's age. Okay, scratch that, it's actually more the age of the men she interacts with except Dancer. At fourteen years old, it's completely natural for Dani to think about sex and, even though she is underage, the thought of fourteen year olds having sex does not fill me with the horror it fills some people with.
But when I think of fourteen year olds having sex, I mean with other fourteen year olds. Or fifteen year olds.

And I don't know if KMM has plans for Dani and Ryodan to get it on or not, but the implied sexual tension between them during parts of Iced grossed me out a little. Ryodan himself is growing on me, I think, let's just say I'm more interested in him now than I was before but I'm not entirely sure if I like him or not yet.
But, interesting as he may be, the thought of him perving on a fourteen year old girl makes me feel icky. There was a suggestion in there somewhere that he may be "waiting" for Dani, which may sound really cute to some people but it sounded like grooming to me.
But, as the four stars should indicate, this isn't as big an issue as I've probably made it seem. There is no sex, no kissing, not even anything between Dani and Ryodan that you could exactly call flirting, but it's a thing that's there and the worst part about it is that sometimes during Iced I was thinking "wow, they might be hot together" until suddenly I remember she's fourteen and I quickly shove the thought away. Assuming KMM is going that way, she needs to get him to stop calling her "kid" asap.
But, who knows, maybe Dani will go for the least morally questionable option and end up with Dancer. Deep, thoughtful sex analysis aside, this book was entertaining through and through for me. As with the other five Fever novels, it is interspersed with scenes of humour amid the action and the dialogue is as witty and fabulous as it was in the good old Mac and Barrons days. I only hope all the other Fever fans enjoy this as much as I did!
View all 32 comments. Jan 25, Helen 2. Dani gets a lot of criticism, but I honestly think it's undue. She's a great heroine, and definitely unique for the genre.
In a horde of urban fantasy women, she stands out. I love the way that Dani's superpowers manifest in her personality. She can run like the wind, and also talks and thinks a million miles a minute. She backs up her superstrength with an ego the size of a skyscraper. And with her heightened senses comes a heightened sense of responsibility to fix the problems she observes.
Da Dani gets a lot of criticism, but I honestly think it's undue. Dani's brilliant characterization speaks to how much KMM's authoring skills have improved since Beyond the Highland Mist.
Beyond those quirks, Dani is your average headstrong teenager, trying to get by in a world torn apart by Faerie. Iced picks up about half a year after the fall of the walls between Earth and Faerie, when a third of the human population was wiped out in a matter of days. Dani acts as Dublin's resident superhero, helping the remaining inhabitants with problems of the fey kind and posting "Dani Dailys" every few days to keep people informed of current dangers.
She is roped, entirely unwilling, into working for Ryodan, one of the Nine and owner of the club Chester's. Ryodan is, in one word, problematic. Not that he's any more domineering, unreasonable, and immoral than Barrons was in the Fever series; but his faults are much harder to accept than Barrons' because he is being set up as Dani's love interest.
First off, I can't see Dani ever falling in love with someone who demands power over her, because she is far too independent for that sort of relationship. Pitching a romance between these two characters doesn't make sense. Moreover, Dani is barely fourteen in Iced!
Yet Ryodan is always saying creepy shit to her. He seems to have a hard-on for "the woman she'll become".
Follow the Author
Even if he says he'll wait for Dani to grow up, that's still intensely pervy. Christian, on the other hand, is a character I can support. Don't get me wrong - he is intensely creepy and more than a little fruity. Christian makes the full transition from human to Unseelie prince over the course of the book and gets progressively less sane, especially in his interactions with Dani.
He also says some very gross things to her, occasionally talking about how he'll take her virginity and make her his queen and so on. But overall, I think Christian is a very compelling character. He starts out as an everyday hero, but we get to watch his downfall as becomes less and less human and more evil.
He has one of the most interesting character arcs in the whole Fever series. The difference between Christian's and Ryodan's advances is the tone the book takes towards their behavior.
The tone towards Christian is decidedly negative. It's clear that Christian is going insane and losing out to his Unseelie side; Unseelie princes have consistently been characterized as rapists, violent assholes, as enemies. Nobody - not the author, not the characters, not even Christian's own human nature - condones his behavior towards Dani.
Ryodan is a different story. The plot focuses quite a bit on the evolution of Dani's regard for Ryodan, and she's already attracted to him. She accidentally walks in on him in the nude, and can't stop thinking about it for the rest of the book.
Everything about the plot and tone points towards the eventual romance between them, which means that KMM thinks that Ryodan's behavior towards Dani is acceptable, possibly even romantic. Which it is NOT. Nothing a grown man does to a fourteen-year-old girl should ever be construed as romantic. If Ryodan isn't above panting after a young teenager, he shouldn't be set up as a love interest.
This was my second time reading Iced, following a full reread of The Fever Series. I'm debating whether I should chug through Burned a second time in order to read the remaining three books of Dani's plot Feverborn , Feversong , and High Voltage.
I hated Burned, but closure for Dani's story would be great. Any advice? Dani is awesome. At its heart is a heroine whose development is likely to become the stuff of legends as this unforgettable, haunting series continues to evolve. It's engaging, hilarious, amazing and Dani is going to be one heck of a woman. Fast-paced, with nonstop action set in a fascinating urban fantasy world of Dublin under siege, this is a smart, bold and textured success.
I don't know how she does it, but she begs me to get on my knees and pay worship to the woman who has brought me the best, most labyrinthine stories and characters I've ever had the privilege to get to know.
She weaves brilliantly, unapologetically, and without exception, and she has threaded the needle into me and I've been pulled, over and over, into her tapestry, and I don't think I'm ever getting out.

Iced is no exception. Please give Iced a try, you will become a Dani fan just like I did. Reader will enjoy that the prime Fever cast plays major roles and the introduction of two new unique dangerous Fae who widen the mythos. Iced will not disappoint. Spoilers ahead me maties! Not for a once-in-a-lifetime girl. Fuck you. In such terrible pain He abuses Dani without a second thought, fails to form even one logical idea, gets outsmarted by Dancer, a seventeen year old kid, and mostly acts like a douche all the time.
Enough said. She has all of the sudden captured the attention of all the male population in the city. Possibly the world. Happy fucking day. I had to skim the damn book in order to manage to finish it!
A book belonging to the Fever series. Iced does not even come close to the previous Fever books. Not close! It felt like I was reading a stupid Young Adult book. Fucking Young Adult book full of sex, foul words and perverts who like to have dirty thoughts about minors.
It just creeped me out.First, I hate insta-lust. About the guys. What are you going to call it: Dani is just as impulsive as ever!!! I never really got why people had an interest in him. Nov 10, Hira rated it it was ok Shelves: Iced is no exception.
