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…
"High Voltage (Fever, #10)" Reviews
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!
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.
Wow, just wow.
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 others do, it leaves so many things open for development. Hope she continues to write about our beloved fever world .
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 gun for Christmas and letting nature takes it's course?
In other words, the villain of this book was a fail. I guess it's possible that my expectations were high considering this is the series that brought us more complicated and terrifying characters than the U.S. Senate, but still. Even a children's book villain has more page-time than this guy did. I think the Big Bad Wolf was scarier. Oh, or the Creeper from Scooby Doo. Remember that guy?
I like how he's wearing a suit. In the good old days, people dressed up for work.
Alright, so no check mark in that box, but at least we get the long-awaited romance between Dani and Ryodan, right? Um... yeah, about that... if you like romance where you get to read hundreds of pages of a girl angsting over a guy, and a guy who was previously a badass, but now has the personality of that dog from "Up" - neutered and faithful, then you are totally in the right place.
So, that was disappointing.
But, at least we get to check in on Barrons and Mac. Their happy ending. You know - all powerful, totally together, in love for all of eternity?
We find out they've hardly even seen each other since the last book. Barrons has been brooding since then. Of course, he's a sexy brooder, so that's kind of okay. But, still..
We DID get a small peek at Christian too, but I wanted more.
Which, I guess was the problem with this book in a nutshell - I wanted more story and less inner monologue.
There are so many great characters in this world, and so many terrifying creatures, and yet most of this book was just Dani thinking the same types of things over and over again.
There were times when it read like a self-help book. Hey, Dani says that if I exercise enough, I can cure my clinical depression. Yay! Take that psychiatry! Dani also talks to us about compartmentalizing, overcoming hardship, what love is, self-image issues, and suicide.
Who doesn't like a good self-help book?
Oh. That would be me.
But what Dani thinks about most of the time is how great she is. You know how the villain guy has one giant leg? Well, I think Dani probably has one giant arm from patting herself on the back so often. And, you know, it was fine for 13 year old Dani. She was a force to be reckoned with, a little super-hero kid. But when a woman in her 20's is constantly telling you how great her ass is, you kind of get to a point where you want to kick it.
It's like 13-yr old Dani grew up in years, so that she could fuck Ryodan, but didn't grow up in maturity at all. Considering all she had been through, I was hoping for more emotional maturity in her.
But that didn't happen. Just like so many other things in this book.
This doesn't mean that the book is not worth reading. It's still the Fever world, and there is always hope that the next one will focus on Christian or something. But, it just didn't live up to the rest of the series. I'm also one of the few people who likes Mac, so take whatever I say about the book with that in mind. I just hope the next one is less talk-more action.
