“[Karen Marie Moning’s] heroines alone are worth the read. Strong and independent, they are perfect role models for any women.”
~ Under the Covers

As one of my most anticipated books this year, I had some really high expectations for HIGH VOLTAGE. This is the tenth book in the Fever series and it marks the beginning of a new journey for Dani. She walks alone in this book after Ryodan, Mac and Barrons have left. Without any of her friends, she feels lost and alone.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of Dani when she was first introduced into the series but already she has made so much progress with her character. If you’ve never read a KMM book before, you’re seriously missing out. Her heroines alone are worth the read. Strong and independent, they are perfect role models for any women. Despite being set in a dystopian world filled with magic and fae, the obstacles that these characters go through are very much humanlike and relatable. Dani’s biggest obstacle here is grief and I found that KMM did such a good job of conveying the emotions and dealing with it.

Ryodan and Dani’s relationship is just beginning and every time a fight occurs between them, I have to smile. For some reason, it comforts me and makes me happy because it means that things are all right in the world despite things falling apart around them.

I cried while reading this novel. KMM’s words always manage to do that to me. The emotions that her characters feel come across as very real and I’d be surprised if you weren’t affected by them. I’m glad Dani is back and we get to see the whole through her eyes again. Because as bleak as it can be, she remains to be the light that brings in hope.

I absolutely cannot wait to see where KMM takes this series next. KMM has made me her bitch and you won’t ever see my complaining about it.

About Karen Marie Moning

“The only other calling I ever felt was an irrepressible desire to be Captain of my own Starship. I was born in the wrong century and it wasn’t possible, so I chose to explore the universe by writing fiction instead. Books are doors to endless adventure.” -KMM

Karen Marie Moning was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1964, the daughter of Anthony R. and Janet L. Moning. The family moved to a self-sustaining farm in Indiana when she was six years old, where she spent her youth raising cows, horses, tobacco, corn and other crops with her sisters and brother.

An alum of the Immaculate Conception Academy, at seventeen she attended Purdue University where she completed a BA in Society & Law, with minors in Philosophy, Creative Writing and Theatre, while working full time as a bartender and computer consultant. She intended to go to law school but after an internship with a firm of Criminal Attorneys, decided against it. For the next decade, she worked in insurance, where she wrote intercompany arbitrations and directed commercial litigation. At the age of thirty, she decided it was time to get serious and do what she’d always wanted to do: write fiction novels.
Beyond the Highland Mist was published in 1999 and nominated for two RITA awards. She then published six more novels in her award-winning HIGHLANDER series, and received the RITA Award in 2001 for The Highlander’s Touch.

In 2004, she began writing the #1 New York Times bestselling FEVER series. The books have been optioned twice for potential franchise development by Twentieth Century Fox and DreamWorks Studios, but the rights are currently held by Moning who has expressed a desire to one day see it as a television series. Her novels have been published in thirty-five countries and are performed on audio by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross. She divides her time between Ohio and Florida and is working on two future projects for Random House Publishing.

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” – Jorge Luis Borges

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
