Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.


Meghan! How can you be so frustrating!!! I wanted to believe that she understood Ash’s position in the Winter Court. How many times did he tell her that the Court would play on her emotions and strip her of all feeling if she showed any. Then at the worst possible moments she blurts out that she loves Ash, right in front of his evil brother, Rowan. From then on all hell breaks loose and Meghan puts aside her naivety finally understands but for me it’s her bravery and kindness that makes her shine.

The romance with Ash and Meghan reaches new heights and he explains why he’s scared to love again. But when Puck arrives back on the scene things get a little twisted in Meghan’s head.

The story is quick paced and continues non-stop. I loved this book, but not as much as the other two before it. I nearly cried when Ash was at Meghan’s house, and she stuck by him even though he’d done those terrible things.

The writing of Kagawa is gorgeous and this is no poor sequel to Iron King. It’s so much more…
