Well, I shI'm a big fan of KMM's Fever books, so I'm excited to read Iced, even though I had some misgivings about its heroine, Dani "Mega" O'Malley. Well, I should have trusted KMM's style. As usual, she has her own unique writing style: fluent, poetic, engrossing.
I'm happy that this book has many POV's, which I enjoyed better than the previous Fever books. Characters from the previous books are back, mainly Ryodan and Christian, and it's nice to listen to their thoughts. Dani is entertaining as a narrator, Ryodan is inscrutable as ever, and Christian is just hilarious. Oh, and Dancer, I love Dancer.
Anyway, Dublin is slowly being iced, and our 'superheroes' have to figure who is doing it. There is a resolution to this mystery, but in typical KMM's fashion, the book ends with a cliffhanger. So be forewarned.

A man possessed with one good conscience and thirteen bad ones. An overly-curious student of antiquities. A love that will battle an ancient curse, and a destructive future.
Having listened to the other Highlander books, I finally got my hands on the audiobook of The Dark Highlander. Since, I read this series out of order, it was actually fitting that I ended having this as the last one, since I started with Book 4, Kiss of the Higlander which was about Dageus’ twin, Drustan.
Dageus MacKeltar, in his quest to save his twin brother’s life, ended up possessed by 13 evil spirits. Now, ensconced in his penthouse up high in Manhattan, he pores over ancient tomes trying to find a solution to his infernal dilemma. Enters Chloe Zanders, ever curious and an expert in ancient artifacts, and finds herself in an utterly compromising situation and ends up as the mysterious Scots’ prisoner. Together, they will travel through time, and challenge powerful beings, as they sought to fight the ancient evil that is slowly stealing away Dageus’ sold.
Narrated by Phil Gigante, I enjoyed listening once again to another KMM’sHighlander book. His voice brings to life every character, the nuances subtle but distinct, the emotions heartfelt. Karen Marie Moning’s writes with such passion, with a prose that is almost lyrical. Her characters are so real and their challenges daunting, that the whole experience becomes a thrilling ride of sensuality and adventure.
I’m sad that I’ve finished listening to all the books in the series, but she has given me many memorable heroes. I highly recommend this series to any paranormal romance fan. Definitely a 5 stars out of 5. ...more
