"The Iron Daughter" by Julie Kagawa (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."-goodreads

I liked "The Iron King" and "Winter's Passage" but I loved "The Iron Daughter"! It had all of the great elements of characters and writing styles, etc... without half the book setting the plot up as in the first book (which was fine, it was necessary!), this one was a lot easier to get into.

I really liked this book, and it took very surprising twists and turns. THE END OF THE BOOK, PEOPLE!?? It was late and I was reading it and I was like...'what!?'. That was surprising. I can't say what happened, you would all hate me for spoiling it but it was really surprising.

I though Puck got a bit more attention in this book which was nice, but on the other hand Meghan was kind of... obsessed with Ash. The whole time. Most of her thought process in the book is kind of...'something, Ash, something, Ash, Ash, Ash, Puck, Ash, something.' regardless of what is going on. That's fine, because that's the way Meghan's character is supposed to be now. It was cute. It was just kind of weird at times.

Regardless of Meghan's obsessiveness over Ash, I'm still team Ash. He got even more complex in this book. I almost became a Puck fan, I have to admit. I felt bad for him. It's kind of like The Hunger Games, I was almost a Peeta fan just because I felt bad for him... Anyway, the whole book (although a lot of it...) does not revolve around Ash and Puck.

The Iron fae are back. Winter and summer are still fighting! There's plenty of adventure and action to enjoy. Grimalkin the cat comes back in there somewhere, if you were a fan of him.

I would write other things but I'm trying to make this relatively spoiler free. It's kind of hard. Overall, I'll say if you enjoyed The Iron King then you should read The Iron Daughter! :D


Review copy through reviewing program at my library. Thank you!
