The only reason I picked up Iced is to “suffer through it”, so I can finally get on reading Mac’s story, because, honestly, who cares about Dani? It turned out that a 14-year-old superhero’s mind is actually a very entertaining and interesting place, full of witty remarks, existential crises and surprisingly quotable thoughts.

Dani is an astonishingly interesting, amusing, thought-provoking character whose voice is written beautifully, in my opinion. She is a kid that had to grow up fast, so she is street-smart, intelligent and wise beyond her years, and childish and naive all at the same time. Reading her point of view is very refreshing – she is a teen that is all businesslike, direct and demanding, and it may be funny at times, yet this is exactly how people her age behave – larger than life. She is also very observant.

I cannot stress enough how enjoyable being in her head is. And how captivating the situations she gets herself into are. She says herself, that she has "the luck of a broken mirror nailed beneath an upside-down horseshoe with a ladder nearby that a black cat just walked under".

I think Karen Marie Moning did a wonderful job distinguishing between points of view. There was never any doubt about who’s point of view you are reading, because they are all genuinely discernible. Dani, Christian, Kat sound completely different from each other, which is the point a lot of authors cannot qualitatively accomplish introducing different points of view.

Plot-wise the story is very compelling. Other than the obvious “Who’s the bad guy icing Dubling”, there are also “What does Ryodan actually want with Dani?”, “Is Christian going to turn full-on evil?”; “Is Mac actually after Dani for killing her sister?”; “Why is everyone so enthralled with the girl?” etc.

All in all, something I was going to “suffer through” turned out to be very “fecking” awesome, and I cannot wait to read Burned (Mac and Barrons are finally back! Yay!). ( )

This is the beginning of the Dani part of the fever world. I ADORED the fever series with Mac and Barrons. So, I have been super excited to get to read books that continue in the same world. Getting to hear things from Dani's perspective is neat. I do hope that in the next book there ends up being a couple years time jump though. Dani is currently only 14 years old and trying to incorporate the romance theory with Ryodan, Christian, and Dancer is a little at odds. Her voice and actions all coincide with her age, but the romance aspect seems a bit difficult to accept sometimes. I also hate that Jo and Ryodan have strung up a "romance". It really sucks for the way Ryodan is pitched with his feelings of Dani. If he truly wishes to be a part of her life until she's ready, then he should be with any of the other faceless girls and not someone close to Dani, and most definitely not striking up a "relationship" with someone she's close to. It seems forced and out of concept. I will obviously continue the series, but hope KMM looks to age Dani a bit so we can see her as a woman. ( )

While I really did like this book, I had a hard time getting into it. Onced I got used to reading Dani specifically, I was hooked. Sometimes it was nagging at me the was she was talking. I get she is only 14 and oblivious to the obvious, but sometimes she came off as whiney. Hoping she mature somewhat in the next book. But luckily the book overall outweighed that for me. I really enjoyed the last half of the book. And that ending.... I'm itching for april 2104 to get here!! I am ready for Mac and JZB baby!! If you liked the fever series (come on...who wouldn't if you you've read them), then you will like ICED. ( )
