Summary: 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.
The Iron Daughter is an intoxicating read that will leave you thinking about it long after you've already read it!
After The Iron King, I was pretty much obsessed with Julie Kagawa's world of Fey. And of course Ash! The Iron Daughter just notches up that addiction.
In Kagawa's second book of her Iron Fey series, we get to know more about the deadly Winter Court and the Winter Princes. The book is an outstanding emotional roller coaster of triumphs, love and tragedy.
During her stay at the Winter Court, Meghan begins to see that she doesn't know who to trust anymore. When things go completely out of control (not going to give away any spoilers), Meghan find herself teaming up with an unlikely ally.
The romance in this book left me squealing in excitement, like Oh Em Gee! The love triangle between Meghan, Puck and Ash is put-you-on-the-tips-of-your-toes intense.
After reading The Iron Daughter I seem to want to make my own Rowan team though. :P
I liked that the ending wasn't a cliff hanger but you still get the impression that something vital has yet to be accomplished.
This has got to be one of the most remarkable sequels I have ever read. It outshines The Iron King in ways I didn't even think were possible. I absolutely cannot wait to see where Meghan and Ash take us in The Iron Queen, coming out February 2011!
