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, iron-bound 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 alone 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.



Let’s discuss how much I love Julie Kagawa, which is a lot. The Iron Fey series are one of the only fantasy books that I’ve read and enjoyed. They are also the only books about Fey that I’ve read (I promise to fix this, really). Julie’s writing makes you dive head first into Meghan’s world. Kagawa left me on the edge of my seat for the whole book, and I enjoyed every minute of being there.
In The Iron Daughter you still get to experience the awesome that is Julie Kagawa’s love triangle. Puck and Ash. Who would you choose? (I am keeping my opinion to myself because I don’t want to get attacked) Meghan’s scenes with Ash were so intense and lovely to read, but Puck is the cute devoted one. This series will stick in my head. It is written beautifully and is genuinely fun to read. Julie Kagawa nailed it!
