About the Book:
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.
Iron Fey, Winter Formal, and DRAGONS OH MY!!!
If you liked the first Iron Fey book then you're in for a treat. This book does not leave you wanting! It's full of action, adventure, and a romance story that will keep readers on the edge of there chairs, gripping their tablets or paperbacks as they rush to find out what's going to happen next.
When I first started reading about Megan and her adventures in the fae world I wasn't sure if she was a strong enough character to win me over. In the first book, The Iron King she spent a lot of the book crying over everything that had gone wrong in her life but she's really stepped up in this book. She now possesses the strength and grace of the princess she truly was born as and when given the opportunity to ignore the problems that exist in the fae world and return home she makes the hard but brave choice to stay and help the people that have become her friends and also help those that would also wish her harm.
Megan is stuck in a world that she's only just beginning to understand with friends and allies the she doesn't completely trust and without her abilities trying to find a way to fix the fae world from becoming a wasteland for the Iron Fey and stop them from destroying the human world all at the same time. She's just a sixteen year old girl with an impossible task, fighting against devastating odds and separated from her true love Ash who she can never be with because they're on apposing sides.
Julie Kagawa truly amazes me, she is an amazing author that takes her readers on a crazy ride with each book she delivers. When I first started The Iron Daughter it began like so many stories before it but I was blown away by some of the shocking twists and turns she delivered. She's put so much thought into each of her characters and seems to have everything planned out for her future books in the series. She even gives us tiny hints of what to come, not enough to ruin it just little hints to keep us interested. I definitely plan on reading more by her and seeing what else she and this series have to offer.
My favorite scene in the book.... there are too many to choose from but there is one that really stood out from the rest of the book. I loved when Meghan, Puck, and Ash went to the winter formal. It was such a human thing to do when they were in such a hurry to defeat Virus and stop the Iron Fey from taking over.
What was your favorite scene?
I gave this book 5 STARS!
