The Iron King
Julie Kagawa
363 pages

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

I could not put this book down for anything. it was really that good! All kinds of mystical creatures, darkness, humor, forbidden love, adventure, I think this one had it all.

Meghan has just turned sixteen when she discovers the land of Nevernever - the world of the fey and fey creatures. Along with it she also discovers that her father is a powerful fey king and she is half-faerie. After learning that several powerful fey want her, she also discovers that their is a another powerful faerie that wants her that no other faerie can defeat. In her quest she befriends some pretty interesting creatures and people.

I have to say that Grimalkin is one of my favorites! He is witty, snarky and yet loveable. Robbie is another great one - he has a big heart and would do anything to protect Meghan.

Then there is Prince Ash of the Winter fey. Dark, brooding, handsome - what's not to love? I love the chemistry and interactions between Ash and Meghan.

I will probably definitely be talking about this book for a long time and will be impatiently waiting to read the next!
