Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Blurb: 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.

My Thoughts: I loved this one! I gave up on Iron King for a bit (went back to it) and read this book instead. This one had my heart racing. It was definitely unputdownable.

The plot was again a simple plot. The Iron Fey have stolen the Scepter of the Seasons, Meghan, Ash and Puck end up getting it back. Mayhem and romance ensues. A cat is snarky, Ash is sexy, and that’s it.

What always strikes me about these books though isn’t the plot so much as the characters and the setting. Julie paints vivid pictures of the Nevernever, the Wyldwood and the other Fey places. Her characters jump off the page with their personalities, especially Puck, and the book moves fast through twists and turns.

If you haven’t pick up this series yet, what are you waiting for, it’s one of the best books you’ll read!

    I just finished this one a few days ago and I agree – it was fantastic. I agree with you that the best part about this series is the character/setting descriptions. Although I have to admit I&#39;m definitely on &quot;team&quot; Puck – I haven&#39;t fallen in love with Ash just yet… mabye in the Iron Queen (which I am about to pick up just as soon as I hit &#39;publish&#39;).<br /><br />Bonnie
