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.
REVIEW: The Fever series is one of those series that no matter the time between releases, and the number of books being released the plot, the characters and the world building keeps getting better and better.
High Voltage brings a lot to the table, we go back to enjoying these characters that have given us one of the best and most exhilarating adventures and back to the characters that have also branded our hearts. This time around, Moning isn’t subtle about the way she brings these characters together, I don’t think she has never been subtle but this time around these characters and their story is told in a whole different way.
We no longer see defiance from Dani, we find more acceptance, we find the same courage but with a level of maturity that we haven’t seen before. Roydan is perhaps the character we see the most change. We have known forever he loves Dani, and that she means something to him in many ways, but at not point readers knew the depth of his emotions and love or even how his emotions for Dani came to be.
Moning does a fantastic job developing this story, even more so how it all plays out and how Dani & Roydan finally end up in each other’s arms. While the fight against the dark fae isn’t over, the fight between Dani & Roydan is finally put to rest. We have finally experience Dani’s greatness and her power. We have finally come to witness the love, the perseverance and the patient that Roydan always showed when it came to Dani and the reasons behind it.
This was a fantastic story and one that finally answers so many questions. It wasn’t a perfect story by any mean, but it was the story I think most Moning fans were looking to have.
