Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

(summary 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, 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.

Review: And the awesomeness continues. I was blown away by The Iron King and didn't think its sequel could match it. If anything, The Iron Daughter surpassed its predecessor. 

For the first few chapters I was worried. Where had the strong-willed Meghan go? The one who listened to Ash about what the Unseelie Court would be like. That Meghan seemed to be replaced by a girl that needed someone to do everything for her. Thankfully our Meghan was returned and the story went along on its merry little way.

As usual the other characters were amazing and there was plenty of faery political drama to balance out the characters' personal drama.

I would say the threat of the iron fey was much greater in this book and I found that this led to many (ingenious) plot twists. I also found myself mentally saying, "The plot thickens!" numerous times, which is always good. 

So, like the first in the series, The Iron Daughter was overall amazing. I'm still in love with this series, I'm still team Ash, and I can not wait for book 3, The Iron Queen
