Book 1: The Iron Daughter For Review Click here.

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.

Favorite Quote...

"Tears filled my eyes and ran down my face, The gash on my cheek stung where they passed, but I didn't care. All I could see was Ash's pain, his loneliness, his yearning for someone who wasn't me..."

Another fun, entertaining read from the Iron Fey series. Julie Kagawa can do no wrong, her ideas and writing are once again, phenomenal!

So basically the story is another quest. It's a journey to find the Scepter of the Seasons that which was taken by "a new" kind of Iron fey. However close by, Meghan and the gang stop at nothing to win the oncoming war.

For the most part, this story was entertaining with all it's fun dialog, adventure and entrancing romance. Meghan, whose officially my favorite character in the books, is incredible. Her ways in handling a tough situation is still shocking...and so...inspiring. And how could I miss Grimalkin? the mysterious all-seeing cat. Team Ash? Team Puck?How can I choose from the two? They're both brilliant in their own personalities...

I can't get enough of puck and his witty remarks, nor can I ever forget the knowing, sweet and sexy Ash.

As for the rating, I didn't give The Iron Daughter a perfect mark because there were times, in just a few parts of the story, where I couldn't help but sigh boredom. But still a great book.
