The Iron Daughter

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
Summary: 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 review: I know there's really no point in reviewing this one, because almost everyone has already read and loved it, just like I did! 
I really enjoyed The Iron King but it was a little hard to understand. I didn't have that problem in this one, so I was able to truly enjoy it, and enjoy it I did!
I think the characters in this book are the main thing that draws people towards them. Meghan is incredibly awesome, when she's not whining like she was in the first book. I especially enjoyed all her quick, sarcastic, and witty replies, they had me rolling on the floor! 
Remember how I said I didn't like Ash in the 1st book? Well... guess what? I'm really warming up to him (pun not intended). Though I still like Puck for his wit, energy, and good attitude. But Ash is just so epic! He's so cool (once again, pun not intended) and wicked. Unlike a lot of love triangles like Twilight (Edward) or The Mortal Instruments (Simon) where I clearly have a favorite between the two boys, this one is so hard to choice! Though I know in my heart she'll end up with Ash, Puck is a worthy competitor! 
The settings in this book were so complex, though sometimes they hurt my head. There were so many layers to the Nevernever, it was impossible to keep track of them all. It was the same way with the characters, I enjoy a complicated plot, but nothing head hurting.
The action in this book was so rich. It was gritty, nail biting, and heroic. These characters all have some serious guts!
The plot developed quickly in this book, just the way I like it! There was not a lot of back story from the 1st book, only enough to refresh my memory.
The Iron Daughter was a novel of epic proportions, it's near impossible not to fall in love with it.

  3. I really liked this one too. :) I didn't warm up to Ash until the third book actually. I guess I just like the funny sweet guy next door type better. I was Team Jacob in Twilight too. Anyway, I enjoyed your review, thanks for posting. :)

  4. Great series!! Loved your review :)
