I have been enjoying this series, devouring the books one after the other, but this one brought me to a screeching halt. Hey, I don't mind a little smut, but the fact that two adult males are pining after a fourteen-year-old girl is just...icky. Dani isn't one of my favourite characters from this series, and in many ways Ryodan doesn't come across as much different from Barrons. A lot happens in terms of action, but the borderline pedophilia is a definite turn off for me. Wished I'd stopped at Book 5. Yuck.

This is the 6th book in the series. Technically the series was supposed to be 5 books (99% written from Mac’s point of view). This installment however is all about Dani and her point of view. If you are hoping for Mac or Barrons...forget it...they each have a one liner. Yet this book is foundational for #7 Burned.
The story delves a bit more into some of the mechanics of living in a post apocalyptic world where everything you needed and taken for granted has simply ceased to exist like milk and eggs. Yet Chester’s surprisingly is still filled with Uber rich people somehow who get served pre-apocalypse goods!
I am not a huge fan of this story because I never really enjoyed Dani’s mannerisms, impulsiveness or speech patterns. It is like nails on chalkboard.
———-spoiler alert————
Overall the story was a bit forced trying to create a future/relationship between Dani and Ryodan that makes NO sense. I am not convinced that Dani cares at all about Ryodan. In the previous books AND in this book she makes it very clear that she thinks he is scum of the earth yet she gets somehow attached to him??!!! And why does he, the supposed suave, is attracted to a feral wild thing?!!!!!
His interest in her is not well explained especially the sexual one. Too many people actually are sexually interested in this child who is constantly sporting facial bruising and covered in bodily fluids, is hardly the sexy type and is an atrocious English speaker.
Others characters go through some drastic transformations too. Christian’s character has gone quite dark, not necessarily a surprise but the about face at the end was inconsistent with his character development.
Lor’s character suddenly makes an about face too and is now a nice guy who is suddenly decent to women and kids when he was a total a-hole to Mac!! Why not just use a different character rather than alter drastically an existing one?!!!
And the whole Jo subplot was annoying and unnecessary except to fabricate tension between Dani and Ryodan.
And we still don’t know why Dani’s powers are so alike the Nine? Who is Dancer really and how can he evade the legendary Ryodan/Nine?
I would only recommend reading it if you plan to read the rest of the books.

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.

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.
