High Voltage: A Fever Novel Book 10

Immortal Faerie and ancient feuds, secrets and sacrifices—a thrilling new chapter in the bestselling Fever series begins, featuring Dani, Ryodan, and other beloved characters, as they battle to save Dublin from the rising of a terrifying evil determined to enslave the human race.

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, Dani is tough and hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, and 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 to 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 would move the very stars for her—can save her this time.

I never want to give something away with a review, so I want to start out by saying that many times throughout this book I just wanted to scream! Scream with happiness, scream in anger, scream in frustration, just scream! Another thing I never do is share a quote from a book but I need to break that rule as well. A shout out to Moning on this quote from High Voltage: 
“One kiss and two days later, BOOM – I was untouchable. If I were a character in a novel, I’d snipe the bitch who wrote my life this way.”
The picture that Moning paints with her stories is so real. I must remember sometimes that I have never seen BB&B or Dani or any of the Nine which makes the love, the fear, the anger and the pain, all the more real for the reader to experience. The depth of her characters is real, her worlds are another part of her soul which makes her books some of the best I’ve ever read. In High Voltage, the real Dani is front and center. We learn more about the different layers of her than we ever have before. This book touched me more than any of her other stories. I absolutely can’t wait to see what comes next in this explosive series.

Giving this 5 sheep.

  1. Could this book be read as a standalone? I've not read any of her books previously... (but plan to... soon!) I just wondered if it would work to jump into the series....
