Review: The Iron Daughter & 100th Post!
Novel: Iron Daughter
Author: Julie Kagawa
Genre: FICTION - JUVENILE: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Magic
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.

This novel is not like The Iron King when it comes to the pace of the novel The Iron King started off slower and the suspense and pace quickened, The Iron Daughter has you on the edge of your seat within minutes, jumping right in where The Iron King left off. There is a lot that I can’t write without giving away spoilers or making this review too spoilery but wow… just wow. Amazing book. Wonderful sequel and if Julie Kagawa keeps getting this much better with every passing novel we are all in for a tremendous treat in years to come. This novel has everything from despair and passion to true friendship and adventure. Stunning novel that has left me waiting for a sequal!
Would I suggest you read it:
Yes! If you have already read The Iron King then this is a must. If you haven’t then go get The Iron King and this novel and read them in order, (it is just better and easier to understand that way.) Amazing novel, amazing pace and style and overall, look out author’s worldwide, Julie Kagawa is a contender. You may find her ninja-ing your fans right out from your novel’s pages if she keeps growing with each passing novel!
