Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Synopsis from goodreads.com:
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.
WOW!!!! The second book in the Iron Fey series was just as good as the first, if not better! It's really hard to write a good review without spoilers, but I'll try.
I'm going to start with the ending. The ending of The Iron Daughter may be one of my most favorite endings EVER!! It wrapped up the book, but still left you wanting to read the next book and it was just so sweet!
I still loved all of the characters. The book seemed to move along a little bit faster than the first one. It was more action packed. As soon as one problem was solved another one showed up. There was some kind of fight or battle, then a little rest, then an even bigger fight or battle. This, of course, just made me love it even more!! There were plenty of twists and turns that surprised me (a lot)! I don't really know what else to say about this book other than I LOVED IT!!!! I can't wait for The Iron Queen! I give it 9/10!
*Well, I guess this turned out to be more of a mini-review, but I'll still call it a review.


  1. Great review! And a good ending! Always a plus. I'm glad it moves faster - that's a pet peeve of mine.
