Review: The Iron Daughter

 Title: The Iron Daughter
Author: Julie Kagawa
Purchased: Amazon Kindle Fire
Date Read: March 3
★★★★


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.



Let me start out by saying that this book was much more effective than the last. I found this story to be much faster paced, which I enjoyed, and there was less useless world and species building, although it was still present.

I love Prince Ash and the idea of a forbidden love, especially when he decides that they cannot be together, I think I loved him more… I think I like Ash as a character more than I like Meg, I find Meg to be a headstrong character, but some things she does is just so dumb and I just want to yell at her. For example, the fact that she leads Puck on for I don’t know how long. It was very obvious that she did not like him, he was always her friend and she never felt anything more. So why confuse yourself more and pretend to have feelings for him?

I found the story to be full of plot twists that I was not expecting. This was really exciting for me because I like nothing more that to expect one thing and be pleasantly surprised to find out that I actually had no idea what was going to happen.

Overall, I only read this book with high hopes that this series was going to get better and it did improve significantly. I am actually excited to read the next book and see where the story continues to.
