Thoughts from a bookaholic

I don't just love to read, I HAVE to read - I am on a never-ending quest to find books that I connect with on some level. Finding a book with the "sticking power" to be remembered long after its been read is something I so rarely find, that it has become an obsession.
Iced - Karen Marie Moning I am a die-hard FEVER fan, so I was really excited about this spin-off/extension of the series and while I liked it, I don't think it quite lived up to the standards of the other Fever novels. It seemed to be mostly setting the stage for things to come, so there wasn't a whole lot that happened in this volume that you could really your teeth into. All the other Fever books have been a wild ride of almost non-stop action, plot-twists, and character development...Iced managed to leave you wanting more, but it didn't manage to give you enough to really know what you want more of...it didn't dive too deep into any one character or story line, so it was hard to feel any sort of strong connection to the story or the characters (save the ones we already have that connection with through the previous Fever books - like Christian MacKeltar - who deserved more time than he got in Iced...) But at the end of the day, I have faith that this is just a blip in the Fever line and that better things are on the way. So I gave it a 4 star rating based on my love of the series...otherwise I'd probably just give it a 3 or 3.5...
