Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Title: The Iron Daughter
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Iron Fey #2
Pages: 359 Pages (Paperback)

Release date: August 1st 2010
Published by: Harlequin Teen

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.

The Iron Daughter picks up where Winter’s Passage left. Meghan is trapped in the Winter Court because of the deal she made with Ash in the first book. While I loved Ash even more in this book than in the first one, I found myself wanting to strangle Meghan even more in this book than in the first one. I don’t know what happened to the part of her brain that held the memory of their ‘talk’ in Winter’s Passage because in the first few chapters of book two, that part of her brain is obviously wandering off somewhere. Sorry if I offended you, Meghan, but you were really being stupid. There was Ash, being handsome and lovely, but there you were, being stupid and annoying. I would’ve smacked you if I could. But I still heart you. Partly because you have a poster of Escaflowne in your room ;P

But all’s well, ends well! Okay, not really. Meghan regained herself when she and Ash fled from the Winter Court. Puck has woken up from his deep slumber and joined the adventure. Still as faithful to Meghan as ever. He still annoys me but I like him more in TID than in TIK. And Ash decided that he had to find the scepter in his own way. He’s still keen on the law against romance between a Summer and Winter fey. I had to pity Meghan several times. Also, Puck had had his chance on Meghan in this book.

If you loved The Iron King, you will absolutely love The Iron Daughter! You’ll probably love it even more than the first book. The Iron Daughter is packed with more action and adventure. You’ll also get to meet new characters and some characters mentioned from the past. And if you’re an Ash x Meghan fan, you will also definitely, definitely love the last chapter!
