From Goodreads: 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.
My Rating: 2.5 hearts
on the Novel: Back when I reviewed Julie Kagawa’s The Iron King, I was told
by a number of people that I should continue on with the series because it gets
better. Perhaps the later books do, but that was not my experience with the
sequel, The Iron Daughter.
I can’t quite remember if I found
Meghan annoying in The Iron King, but I really wanted to punch her after reading The Iron Daughter. It just felt like she was either
sobbing or obsessing about Ash throughout the entire book.
I’m still puzzled as to why
people have fussed so much over the romance, which continues to feel very
forced to me. It’s pretty clear that Ash isn’t over Ariella, but if Meghan’s
fine with that, well, there’s another reason that I find her pathetic.
Seriously, if it wasn’t for Puck,
Grimalkin (who always seems to conveniently appear to bail Meghan and her
friends out of trouble), and Ironhorse, I probably wouldn’t have bothered to
finish The Iron Daughter. The question now remains: To read The Iron Queen or
Daughter was released in August 2010 by Harlequin Teen.
About the Cover: It's not amazing or anything, but I like it better than The Iron King's.
