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.
You are going to hear me say words that I have never said on this blog and in all probability never say again: “The second book was better than the first”. Yes that’s right folks you heard me correctly. I loved The Iron Daughter in so many ways. You were able to glean much more insight into the characters and even find out some dirt on the Puck / Ash situation. The Iron Fey are back and with a vengeance and the Iron Horse (Team Iron Horse FTW) is awesome as always.
Meghan grows up quite a bit and turns into quite the little kick-ass vixen. I enjoyed seeing her transitioning from girl to older girl.
A host of new characters to whet your appetites, and scores of old characters coming back for me. Such as Grim the most awesome cat ever.
If you like Holly Black or Maggie Stiefvater you will love Julie Kagawa!
