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 to protecting Dublin. By day, she ensures the safety of those she rescues, by night she hunts evil, dispensing justice swiftly and without mercy, determined to give those she cares for the peace she has never known.
There is no power without price…
When the Faerie Queen used the dangerously powerful Song of Making to heal the world from the damage done by the Hoar Frost King, catastrophic magic seeped deep into the earth, giving rise to horrifying, unforeseen consequences–and now deadly enemies plot in the darkness, preparing to enslave the human race and unleash an ancient reign of hell on Earth.
There is no future without sacrifice…
With the lethal, immortal Ryodan at her side, armed with the epic Sword of Light, Dani once again battles to save the world but her past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance, demanding an unspeakable price for the power she needs to save the human race and no one—not even Ryodan who’d move the very stars for her—can save her this time… FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I have no idea how I missed the release of this book and am now finding it months and months later — heavy sigh. Regardless the problem has now me resolved High Voltage has been devoured and I loved it. The book focuses on Dani post-Jada, and she is back to her bubbly Megga self that I fell in love with at the beginning of the series. However, this did cause some issues for me when it came to her relationship with Ryoden. She is older now between 20-23 she doesn’t even know, but still has a manic effervescence for all things much as she did as a teen and it didn’t feel like she grew up. So her having adult feelings and eventually adult relations was like thinking of my little sisters having adult relations. Gah gag. I usually like sexy times in a story. This one I could have done without. Moning gave Dani such an interesting story arc, one that I didn’t see coming at all. It was incredible and such a fascinating mystery and so totally Dani to embrace the adventure. BTW I love Shazam. I love where the story is going, and I can’t wait for more. There isn’t any Mac in this story for all of you Mac fan’s out there, but that’s ok the book didn’t need it because Dani can hold a book on her own. I just had trouble not picturing her as a teen instead of a woman. I listened to the audiobook, and it was narrated in my favorite format as a duet, and I loved it. The narrators are brilliant and did an exceptional job. I can’t wait to see what is next in the Fever series, and there is so much more to know. Mac and Dani aren’t done. I love this world, and it continues to be one of my favorites.
