Review: High Voltage - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

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.

High Voltage
By Karen Marie Moning

Review: High Voltage

Fierce and fearless, resilient and extreme in every move she makes. A nighttime vigilante and a superhero sidhe-seer, but deeply loyal, compassionate and vulnerable in a steel-strong shell. That’s Dani O’Malley, the Mega we’ve all come to know and love. With HIGH VOLTAGE, Karen Marie Moning takes us deeper into her psyche, as she grieves, desires and tries to save the world once more.

Right off the bat, I want to tell you that I thought the novel had an altogether different feel than some of the other Fever books (and that’s not a bad thing). The dark Dublin underworld was there but Dani really took center stage in this more character-driven narrative. We see her every day, privy to her thoughts and feelings as she grieves, as she saves the children who are suddenly left without parents, as she hunts the evil that lurks out of sight.

The Song of the Making healed the world after the Hoar Frost King, but it also changed things, giving rise to a new threat. To make matters more complicated, not only is the world changing, but she’s changing too. Powers are emerging within, powers she’s had to use against those who are after her.

With Ryodan at her side, with long-held truths spoken, Dani and those she loves must come together to prevent the human race from being enslaved. Trouble is, this time, Dani may be the only one that can save the day… and at a cost.

Again, this 10th installment was very character driven, so we didn’t see huge battles or action scenes. However, as we’ve seen before, Moning (I feel) is setting up for a larger story and it may have been necessary to narrow the scope before we experience another plot-driven, action-heavy, call-to-arms chapter in the Fever saga. It felt like a love story in which we finally saw Dani as who she was meant to be, to love in the way she’s wanted to love and perhaps most importantly, be loved in the way she’s always longed for, by the man who is her equal.

“At fourteen, I’d vowed, one day, I’d be the woman making him laugh, making joy blaze from his face, so tangible it seemed I might catch it in my hands.”

There’s beauty and nuance in her development, in allowing us to experience her just the way she is… scars and all.

“Because I know a priceless truth. When someone has done everything in their power to mangle your wings beyond all recognition, to slice them to shreds so that they can never be used again there is only one way to win. Fly.”
