The Iron Daugter by Julie Kagawa
Reviewed by Gina Date Published: April 15th, 2011 (UK)
Date Read: August 27th, 2011
Blurb: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.
Review: I enjoyed this book. Took me a while to get through it all (started writing a new novel...again) but eventually i finished it and i loved the idea of this novel.
I feel that we really got to see Meghan at her best and i enjoyed Julie's style of writing once again. What i'm going to say next isn't a bad thing, necessarily. I feel that, because she writes in such detail, it can be a lot to take in at one time. That's why i think it took me a lot longer to read. I wanted to take everything in that she wrote.
The characters as always are lovely to read about. Especially Puck and i was really happy when him and Meghan kissed but i was even happier at the ending, which was pretty good :) So glad she chose to go with Ash but i have a feeling things aren't over between her and Puck yet.
I actually felt sad at the part with Iron Horse. It actually made me get a tear in my eye :(
Not a long review but still...Gonna give this book 8/10 :) Cannot wait until the third book comes out over here :) 5 stars!
