My review of The Iron Daughter

19/01/12 - The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey #2) by Julie Kagawa - Released 1st August 2010

Stunning. Absolutely stunning.

The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey, #2)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 had me crying, laughing, smiling, irritated, annoyed and so completely messed up I couldn't get to sleep!

The characters. Wow, the characters...They were brilliant! I fell in love with all of them. Meghan, she's definitely got stronger as a person and as a fey! I'm incredibly jealous of her. She's got such a nice boy, who loves her and would do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING for her! Now, everyone who's read The Iron King knows who I'm talking about, right? ASH! PRINCE ASH! PRINCE FLAMING ASH, OF COURSE! Sigh, he's such an amazing character to read about. Totally swoon-worthy. Unfortunately, (My darling) Ash had some competition. You want to know who it is? Read the book. Sorry guys, I can't tell you, it would be spoiling it for you.

I fell in love with some unexpected characters. Iron Horse? Wow, I never expected him! As you read about him, you realize that he does have a heart, that just because he's made of iron doesn't mean he's unbreakable. Puck, Meghan's best friend, was charming and funny as usual, always trying to lighten the mood with his jokes and opinions! But...we saw a different side to him in this book, he showed more emotion, but they all seemed to be negative? Anyhow, I want Puck as my best friend.

The Iron Daughter's plot was a little more dangerous. We saw some good heart ache from Meghan, but she pulled through. We saw some pretty good action from (My) Prince Ash and Puck. Damn, it was just so good! There were extreme twists and hard-hitting situations for the characters to deal with. I never expected what was just around the corner!

Absolutely breath-taking.

I rate this book:

5 Falling Books!
