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.
My Review:
I Love love love this series!
Once again I did a read along with fellow blogger's only via good reads this time. I find that to be so enjoyable.
Bringing back the beloved characters from Iron King as well as a few new players we get some questions answered and some more to ask while Meg,Ash,Puck and Grim take on another adventure to save the never never from the Iron fey. The love triangle gets more complicated , Meghan finds more of herself, a few surprises from Ash and Puck as well as Grim's always complicated self.   Leaving  off with an ending that will have you begging for more!
Another solid 5 stars for the second book in the Iron Fey series!

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.
My Review:
The Iron king lived up to all the hype I had read and heard about it!
As a bonus I read this book with a group of fellow blogger's via twitter which really helped catch all the detail.
The story line of wonderful characters,ever changing twists and turns that include good guys,bad guys, a fight to the death or two, friendship ,love, and a whole lot more  will leave you trying to decide which character you love more and dieing to know what comes next.
5 stars for this great book!
