In case you missed this excerpt when it was shared on Facebook a few days ago, I got the thumbs up from Random House to share the first 27 pages from Iced by Karen Marie Moning with you all. *happy dance*
As you may or may not know, The Fever series is my all time favorite series (as in, I'm SO IN LOVE with this world, characters, writing and everything that means the Fever series, that I could never ever even write a review for it, I know I wouldn't make it any justice and I couldn't exactly explain how I feel about it, how much it changed me and my tastes in books). So saying that I've been dying to read Iced for more than a year now would be the understatement of the year.
I'll admit that I'm a bit scared to leave Mac and Barrons (the best book couple EVER!) behind and to jump into this new adventure with Dani as a main character, but hey, it's Karen Marie Moning, it just can't be bad.
Anyway, here's the excerpt. I had a stupid grin on my face the whole day when I read it. I mean, Ryodan? YES, please! *dies*

Format: Hardcover, 352 pages
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning comes the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban paranormal trilogy, set in the world of her blockbuster Fever series.
The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.
Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.
Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.
When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.
Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.
*I think you can read this if you haven't read the first 5 books too, since it's a new world, a new main character and lots of new adventures, but you're seriously missing out if you don't start at the beginning.
Have a fabulous Friday!
