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.
I didn't like The Iron daughter as much as I did The Iron King. It was still a great book with tons of adventre, that was well written, it just wasn't as great as the first. I love the whole world that the Iron Fey sereies takes place in. It's very magical and unique and makes a great setting for a book. Julie Kagawa has a amazing style, she created such imaginative characters and set them on an awesome adventure that will keep readers entertained. She has a great flow to her writing that is very descriptive. I love the character Ash, I think he is a perfect match for Meghan, and I can clearly see how the relationship progresses. I liked how in his one we learn alot about the powers that Meghan didn't know she had, and how we get to see inside of the unseelies court since we have already seen the summer.
The big thing the annoyed me a lot in this book was Meghan, trough out the whole book she was complaining about how she new she couldn't be with Ash, but how much she wanted to. I get it you have a forbidden love and to can't be together. Take strength from that problem and try to overcome it instead of moping around. There was as much action as in The Iron King, which is sad because all the action is what led me to fall in love with the first book. I really do not like Puck at all, I find him to be rude and childish. I see no reason why he would be competition towards Ash. I really wasn't as hooked to this book, it was still a great edition to the series and I cannot wait to read The Iron Queen. Hopeully The Iron Queen will be just as good as The Iron King to me.
