Book Review: The Iron Daughter By Julie Kagawa

Title: The Iron Daughter
Author: Julie Kagawa
UK Publishers: Mira Books
Paperback: 384 pages
UK release date: 15th April 2011

Summary: 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.
I love finding new series and saying “where have you been all my life?” The Iron daughter is a beautful story in the Iron Fey series. I didnt think I could get into books about faries and goblins etc but wow I wish I did sooner Julie has converted me.

Julie has amazing writing skills. The way she describes NeverNever is so beautiful I could just close my eyes and imagen how awesome it is. I didn't think it could get better than The Iron King but I was wrong. From Meghan trying to escape from most things in NeverNever to trying to get the scepter from the Iron Fey and trying to figure out if Ash does love her or is just messing with her head. There was so much going on I couldnt put it down from start to finish.

Julies Characters are not at all flat or three-dimensional. They stand out so much to me you can definantly relate to them all. Each has a destinctive personality, In some books I have read some characters sound and act the same as eachother but these characters are far from it. Meghan is kind and brave girl she is and I love that about her. Ash is sexy and very hard to get, And Puck is such a caring and nice guy.

There were a lot of shocks in this book. Shocks that made my mouth drop and never shut. There were a lot of emotional moments. So emotional I couldnt stop crying. One of my favourite scenes in this book was were Meghan, Puck and Ash attend Meghans prom it was just a good scene. Shes been in NeverNever for so long and now shes back. I love how Julie can differentiate between the two. I cannot wait to get my hands on The Iron Queen and I am sure The Iron knight will be just as fantastic. Julie Kagawa:s Iron Daughter will take pride in place on my book shelf.
