The Iron Daughter
Julie Kagawa
359 pages

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

The Iron Daughter picks up where The Iron King left off. For the review of The Iron King, see here. There is a novella of Ash and Meghan's journey to the Winter Court, A Winter's Passage, though I have not read it yet.

In the first book, we meet Meghan, who discovers she is the half fey daughter of Lord Oberon and that her brother, Ethan, has been kidnapped by the Iron King, who is the head of the iron fey. In The Iron Daughter, we begin with Meghan in the Winter Court after the defeat of the Iron King. Lots of things are about to go down and I do not want to spoil it for any of you.

Sometimes sequels can be really, really bad, but this was excellent! We have our same favorite old characters (and some we don't like so much) and we also meet a few new ones. I love the world of Ms. Kagawa created and I seem to lose myself in the rich detail of the fey world and, naturally, the love between Ash and Meghan (swoon!). I am dying to get a hold of The Iron Queen!

What I give this book:

I can't wait to get to this series. I know if I really looked I could find people who hated it, but so far everyone seems to love it!

It truly is a great series. It is one of those that is written so well and it is so descriptive it really draws you in!
