 The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey, #2)
Author; Julie Kagawa

Review; 5/5

Release Date; August 1st 2010

Product Description from Goodreads

            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.

            If I had any doubts about the originality and “amazingness” of Julie Kagawa, the Iron Daughter has totally cured those feelings. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this second installment to the Iron fey series!!!!

            When I read the Iron King, I was thrown by the similarities and borrowed characters from popular stories such as Peter Pan, Alice in the Wonderland, and various other stories, however after reading the second book I realized that I wouldn’t have loved this book as much if these characters weren’t so well known to me!

            The Iron Daughter starts where the Iron King ends off. Megan is stuck in the winter court, as a prisoner to the Winter Queen, and Ash is ignoring her and acting like she means nothing to him anymore, so naturally she’s having a hard time. However as the story progresses and certain things occur Megan finds herself once again battling the Iron King’s army and someone else…

            After reading this book I am 100% on Team Ash! I think there’s something genetically wrong with me falling for the rough-around the edges-guy (story of my life right?), however no matter how bad Ash can treat Megan all it takes is one loving gaze and secret “I love you” that has me swooning. However, Megan’s quick admittance of love to Ash seemed sudden and embarrassing at times since she doesn’t hid it and often is looked down upon due to it. However I guess this is a reality in its own, because when you’re a teenager you seem to fall faster and harder when you have no worries other than your crush.

            This book ended on a cliffhanger, which drive me nuts!!! The Cliffhanger was unexpected and has me sitting on the end of my seat until I get The Iron Queen in my possession!! For those who love the Iron King will simply devour the Iron Daughter. This is one fantasy book not to miss! 

ARC received from Netgalley


  1. I really wanted to wait to read this, but now I can't wait. As soon as I finish my other two books from NetGalley I'll hopefully be getting The Iron Daughter. Although, I'm sure the cliffhanger is going to end up driving me crazy as well.

  2. Hey I got this from Netgalley too! Haven't read it yet :)


Nothings better than a comment! :)
