Teen Fiction

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.

Another romp through the Nevernever, THE IRON DAUGHER delivers a jam-packed faery world-wind of fun! 

I won't give any spoilers but it starts directly after THE IRON KING (see my review HERE) and Meghan must go with winter Prince Ash to the Winter Court and deal with the nastiness that is Queen Mab and her minions. In a short time, Meghan and her father are blamed for the theft of the Scepter of the Seasons, an important Winter Court royal is dead, and they’re off! 

Once again, Meghan, Ash and Puck must work together to save the day on an thrilling, dangerous adventure. Kagawa’s gift is creating a brilliantly vivid world, and a cast of enigmatic, engaging characters – love them or hate them, they’re all fun to read! 

And then there’s the romance – one of the greatest literary love triangles going between brooding, passionate Prince Ash and funny, loyal, loving Puck. I love them both for different reasons, and feel Meghan’s push-and-pull in opposite directions. Sure, Puck seems to be the smart choice, but is he the right choice?  Only time – and the next book, will tell. Can’t wait for THE IRON QUEEN! 

SEXUAL CONTENT: No worries. Nothing but sexual tension and sweet romance.

THE COVER: Beautiful, magical. 

BOTTOMLINE: THE IRON DAUGHTER delivers an unforgettable, don't-miss-it, heart-stopping adventure traveling through a so-real-you-can-touch-it fantastical world, bursting with engaging characters, friendship, romance, danger, political intrigue, complex family dynamics – it’s a blast!

I'm still nervous about reading the Iron Fey trilogy, but maybe I'll try it when I get the chance.

Great review!

That series looks great. I've seen so much about it, but never read it.

On the one hand it sounds like an interesting read, on the other ... I'm not much for love triangles. It's so hard to decide. LOL.
