Belinda’s Book Nook Book Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

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.

Can a second book in a series get better than the first? Absolutely and I enjoyed this book more than the first and I really enjoyed the first. More action, danger and a little romance. I couldn’t wait to see what happened to Meghan in book two. This book was a guilty pleasure something like how I felt reading The Twilight series. She is torn between two possible loves and there is a lot of adventure to keep the story moving.  I read quickly to find out what would happen with the Winter Prince and Meghan. I had a great time trying envisioning the beautiful scenes that author, Julie Kagawa laid out for the reader. This is truly a fun series.

Happy reading my friends.

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

Once again I am drawn into a YA book. My first favorite YA book was the Twilight series.  This book is in my opinion would be categorized as fantasy. My first and I fell right into it easier than I thought.  It  is like Twilight in that there is a love triangle and the fey are immortal like the vampires in Twilight.  I am not implying these books are similar beyond that. They are very different.   I am a big believer that a review should not contain a spoiler.  So I will stick by this and say that I felt she developed the main characters well and I found Meghan, Puck and Ash enjoyable. Puck is a very fun character and Ash is the strong handsome type.  So yes, romance does weave throughout the book nicely.

I think this is a great beach or rainy day read. As with most series, I am going to read the others too because I don’t quite want to say goodbye to the characters yet. I believe this is a 5 book series.

I would recommend this book. I enjoyed it very much and will post reviews for the other books as I read them.

Happy Reading!
