There is no action without consequence…

Dani O’Malley was nine years old when the delusional, sadistic Rowena transformed her into a ruthless killer. Years later, she’s tough, hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, driven by deeper ones carved into her soul, no one is more committed

Ok so it's official

Before I start my review I gotta write a disclaimer so y'all know where I am coming from that I am like an OG hardcore Dani fangirl from way back! I ain't just some loser hater who is shitting on this book needlessly. Dani is literally my fave heroine of all time! I will always love Dani, that brilliant girl imprinted on my heart way back in iced.

I have got hardcore emotional investment in Dani's story yo so this review is about to be like 10 pages! Ryodan and Da

As one of my most anticipated books this year, I had some really high expectations for HIGH VOLTAGE. This is the tenth book in the Fever series and it marks the beginning of a new journey for Dani. She walks alone in this book after Ryodan, Mac and Barrons have left. Without any of her friends, she feels lost and alone.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of Dani when she was first introduced into the series but already she has made so much progress with her character. If you’ve never read a KMM

Hiii helloo apparently people are going crazy over this book. I say it here; even tho I didn't like this book, doesn't mean you will not either. I'm honestly glad for my friends who loved this but people who didn't are being attacked about it xD holy fucking shit so I repeat; this is only my personal opinion and I'm not some sort of Troll ( I'm actually a goblin ) and I'm not trying to influence anybody, I wish you all happy reading!! Everybody ignore me, who gives a flying fuck about my opinion ...more

High Voltage was the last book I completed in 2018! And, Lord, did it really end the year off on a low note! I had so much faith after Feversong! But it just seems like KMM cannot write a book that stars Dani without i
As a stand-alone read, I loved it. I loved Moning's imagination, the way she twists us up into the characters emotionally and for the characters as they are now... But...as a continuation of Dani and Ryodan, we come to already know...I'm conflicted. The vacillation from the base characters was difficult to justify but in the end I managed. I got caught up in the telling and enjoyed the heck out of it anyways! ...more

So.. this is it. Dani's long awaited HEA. I'll preface my review by saying I am a huge fan of Dani, she's one of my all time favorite characters. I've been desperately waiting for Dani to take the main stage again since Burned. I was so disappointed about the direction change but I had faith K Mo would see it through. I have a lot of respect for her as an author and I have no desire to bash her. I wanted to absolutely love this book.

That being said this book was bad. Shockingly bad. It read more

Ahhhhhhmazing!!!! I loved it! So incredibly good. The audio was fantastic like always. I have really grown to love Danni these past few books. She was really grown and come into her own person. I really loved where she took this story with Dani. Ryodan.... oh how I love Ryodan. Him and Barrons are right up there together. I love the alpha male beasts she has created in this Fever World. Definitely one of my favorite series ever. This was definitely not a disappointment!

I actually loved this book. And Ryodan... I mean can he be real and come to my doorstep please lol

I agree everyone about Mac and Barrons having 8 books about them. It is not fair at all, since the last 3 of them made me hate B&M. Also, I would love to see more of this sexual tension between Ryo and Dani tbh. I'm a sucker for UST and since we all know how KMM is master at writing UST, it is a little dissapointing that we did only get that just a tiny bit.

Splendid. Breathtaking. My heart is so full. This very well may be my favorite of Moning’s stories. Dani’s story is epic, though I expected nothing less.

I love the fever series. At least the first 6 books. Yes, 6 not 5. Dani made the 6th book awesome.

While I didn’t hate Dani in the first 5 books, I was always disgusted by the amount of “too old for a 14 yo” things. However, she, as a character, was always adorable and a total badass. Iced was good because of her. I loved reading from this girl’s POV. She was so fun and wild. However, this book was more of a romance and less of the usual addicting action-packed book, what fever series is known fo
When you only have a villain who shows up for maybe three pages out of the book, he/she should be epic. Like so horrifyingly creepy and scary that more page-time would make us all lose our shit from fear. Let's see if this guy measures up:

...demonic one-eyed god....wears a mask.... has a bug as his evil minion...one leg bigger than the other..."

"And how do we kill him?"

"The legends say by taking his eye."

Soooo, you're basically saying that we could take this guy out by buying him a BB gu

This book was a dream, just perfect in my opinion. I am a huge Dani superfan, have been since Iced and I couldn't be happier with how her story is going. I enjoyed reading High Voltage so so much, it will quickly become the book I read the most over and over. So many amazing quotes, and moments in High Voltage. Dani's strength is something I have always admired and I can't wait to see what comes next!

The newest book in the Fever series definitely delivered!

This is one of my all time favorite series, and I continue to be captivated by each new dip in to this world.

This book centers around Dani (our now grown up heroine) and Ryodan (the enigmatic public leader of The Nine), but it gives views in to many of the beloved characters lives as well.

Dani has had an incredibly rough life, but she remains pure of heart and a light in the darkness. Our fearless Dani, has to overcome her biggest obstacle

No Words

I have no words for how much I loved this book. I cannot quantify how good this was. The evolution of Dani O'Malley is truly something to behold. There is so much going on in this book, so many threads connecting, so much emotion. And Ryodan, I never thought I could love him like I love Barrons. My perception of him changed so much, getting a glimpse in his head and seeing - no feeling - his emotions for Dani, was like nothing else. There is still so much story to tell, I'm not sure I ca

I am bofflescated speechless! LOL Nearly 10 years ago I read the first book in this series for the first time. I loved KMM's Highlander series and discovered this one was set in the same world. It was immediately my favorite book and all these years later this series is still the best I've ever read. I'm very grateful for KMM's creativity and ability to put to paper her fantastic vision for this series! ...more
High Voltage was a different book to what I was expecting. In comparison to the first nine books, which were chock full of mystery, intrigue and blow-you-over plot reveals; High Voltage was much more of a character study, with some HUGE moments serving the character development, but it played out a bit more understated than the previous books.
Personally, I think it pairs well with Feversong, because whilst FS was the culmination of various plot threads that had been established in the earlier b

Eh, I just can’t ship someone as boring as Ryodan plus you can’t erase all the crap that went on in previous books. His dynamic with Dani never worked, even though I like her. The UF angle is fine. Don’t know why I can’t quit these books.🤷‍♀️


3.5 stars

Dani/Ryodan shippers - rejoice. Those who haven't been impressed by Fever books since Shadowfever - skip this one without reservation, you won't find a brilliant turnaround here.

I am neither D/R shipper nor a hater of the post-Shad
I'll be old and grey when this book finally comes out...

And I can't freaking wait!

ETA: I'm sorry to add that, 5 years after expressing my initial excitement for this book, my love for the Fever series has slowly petered out, starting with Iced and continuing with its disappointing successors. I'll always treasure the first 5 books, but this book I will likely not read.

I devoured this book from beginning to end in a matter of hours. I think I'll need to re-read to catch the nuances and foreshadowing and allow myself to savor it rather than acting like I'm running a race to the finish line.

Every now and again, a writer leaves a piece of his or her heart on the pages. Dani and her character growth were both superhero and relatable all at once. She has heart, humor, a killer's edge and a vulnerability at the same time. Layers, folks.

This book was all about emotio

let me just say I ( for once) have nothing but awe for this book, I love that I couldn't predict what was going to happen and even when I did there always something extra. I've been waiting to have more Roydan n Dani it felt like after reading this book (in a day) my thirst is quenched at last. This book didn't disappoint me and if your a mac n barrons fan (mac n Barrons forever) you'll get little of them in this book but I'm more hyped than ever to find out what been happening to her, the world ...more

Dani Dani Dani........ this is one of my most favorite female characters. This is in ok conclusion to her story but not totally fulfilling......... The story must go on and I do think that the arch-line will benefit from more world building ? But nonetheless I enjoy the book just like I enjoyed the previous books except Feversong. Feversong was way too ... you know just too sweet for a lack of a better word.

Excellent and heart wrenching as always!!!!

Omg! I mean wow. So many twist and turns I didn't see coming!!!!! It explained so many questions i had about Dani/ryo combo. KMM takes everything up to a whole new level that you will never see coming. Yet so many new unanswered questions. My only complaint is that it takes soooo long for the new books to come out and you never really know if she will write more on the fever world. Although this book doesn't quiet end on a cliff hanger like some of her

Tadaaaa... I LOVE IT. Yeah, I loved it. I loooveeee it. /sings/ Finally my beloved Dani from Iced is back!!!

I loved their HEA. I adore the Nine, all of them and I would like to read more about them.

I am sorry, I know this review lacks any sense but... I am so emotional now :D I was truly worried that I won’t like this book, that I will be disappointed. But I am not. I loved the steamy romance, I loved seeing Barrons again - and it was also a very hilarious scene, <3.

Well. It was all I hoped it

This story will make you feel ALL. THE. THINGS!!!

I devoured this book on the release day. Something I have NEVER done before. I’d even venture to say this is my FAVORITE book in the series.

It’s so unlike any of the other Fever books in the best possible way. This is a story about life and death, healing, rising up from the shit storms that knock you down, then LIVING and LOVING through all of it. It’s also about how utterly infinite the universe is, and how preciously beautiful the cosmic thre

Mannnnnnnn can I tell you I freaking loved this book. Karen marie moning writing gets into your head so well the scene of papa roach explaining how he gets back at humans had me immediately grossed out I ran to the pharmacy to buy a new toothbrush and case set even though I already had a perfectly sanitary one! As much as I love mac and Barrons I am completely in love with Dani and even more so with Ryodan. I wanted more Ryodan [Greedy i know] but I appreciated the deleted scenes soo

Ok I have started to write this review six times and I always get two sentences in before I start deleting everything.
So let me try for the 7th time! This book was brilliant! Not more so than the others but equally the same. Karen never disappoints!

Dani, the mega! A better storyline could not have been written, in my opinion, for Dani. I do not want to reveal any spoilers so I'm going to keep this short.
