The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
Rating: 5/5
Synopsis: (From NetGalley): 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.

Review: The Iron King was like a rollercoaster made me laugh, angry, and cry. For those who've read The Iron King (and I'm sure there are plenty!), this is NOTHING compared to that stack of pages, which is also filled with awesomeness. Personally, I think the book is TEN TIMES more action-packed and jaw-dropping than the first in the series. I remember just reading the first chapter, my eyes popping. I could not stop reading!

Forgive me for being fan-girly, but I had so many panic attacks that I lost count. I know it made my mom's day when she heard me scream in the living room (hehe!). I think this book was better than the first because not only did it provide the answers I had from the first one, but it also heated things up more. I have to admit though; sometimes being in Meghan's head at certain points of the book aggravated me. Her love for Ash is sometimes...too much? However, she's still one of my favorite characters! It's not often that a sequel is even better than it's predecessor, but for Kagawa, it is.

The ending makes me anxious to know how the story will continue. Granted, I just want to read more!

What I thought of:

The Beginning: Lots of shocking news! O_O

The Middle: The middle was filled with more shocking news, revelations, and awe-worthy scenes. I am telling you this book is FANTABULOUS.

The End: It left me surprised and lingering for more! I can't wait until the next book comes out. The ending was beautiful.

Favorite Quote From Book:
Even if I was turned ninety, lost my mind and forgot everything else, the memory of the Winter prince would be a shining beacon that would never fade.

...and for the record, I am TEAM ASH because he pwns Puck any day of the week!

Ok, I'm reading When Good Wishes Go Bad from NetGally and I guess I'm not enjoying it that much cause I'm not reading it very quickly. I was waiting to finish to move on to Iron Daughter...but now I want to just DNF WGWGB to get to Iron Daughter. --Especially after reading this review--

Kim said...
