Hardcover, 352 pages
Published August 20th 2013 by Putnam Juvenile
Read from May 29th to July 7th 2013

Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family, but instead of fighting off a turncoat uncle and crooked cops, this time she finds herself on the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and pale white skin chasing her through the streets in ice cream trucks; they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They're terrifying and hell bent on killing her, but they're also a link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them. While she battles these new pursuers, she's also discovering more about her own cold fury and more about the Chicago Outfit, how the past misdeeds--old murders and vendettas--might just be connected to her present and the disappearance of her family. But connecting the dots is tough and time-consuming and may finally be the undoing of her relationship with the handsome Max--who's now her boyfriend. But for his own safety, Sara Jane may have to end this relationship before it even really starts. Her pursuers who've shown her her mother's amputated finger and the head of the Chicago Outfit who's just whistled her in for a sit-down make a romance unthinkable. The only thing that matters is finding her family and keeping everyone she loves alive.

Where do I even begin? I really enjoyed this book a lot!! This book, like the first one Cold Fury, was full of action packed scenes and some unexpected scenes as well. Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family. She gets chased by the Ice Cream Creatures and almost run off the road, but she manages to save herself while the creature attacking her falls to its death. Once she thinks she's safe, she heads back to the Bird Cage Hotel, where she and her best friend Doug, have been hiding out. With the help of Doug, they discover that the MKK (Mister Kreamy Kone) have a sort of club for people who enjoy the ice cream from this company. Doug decides to go to this club to investigate and soon finds himself unable to resist the craving for MKK ice cream. It becomes a problem and Sara Jane must find out what is going on before its too late. We also learn about another side of Sara Jane's family. A girl named Heather, her cousin. After spending some time together, they sort of become friends. Since they don't really know each other that well and all. After some time though, Sara Jane realizes that Heather could possible possess Cold Fury as well. I could go on and on about this book, but I fear there may already be spoilers.
And I don't like to spoil books for people.

I gave Flicker & Burn 5/5 Butterflies!
