Product Description

Product Description

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fitted 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 the prince who betrayed her, 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.

More About the Author

Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn't getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.

When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.
To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dogtrainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon puppy.

Julie is the author of the bestselling Iron Fey series. The Iron Knight the fourth title in The Iron Fey series publishes in Jan 2012. The Immortal Rules, the first title in a brand new series publishes in May 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars Technology battles the Fey! 30 May 2012
By N. J. H. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this second installement of the Iron Fey series, we return to the world of the NeverNever in order for Meghan to fulfill her contract. You may remember from the previous books (and the short novella inbetween the first and second books - Winter's Passage) that Meghan made a deal with the Unseelie, or winter, prince Ash that if he helped her to rescue her brother from the Iron King, Machina, she would go with him to the winter court without trouble.

Well now Meghan has to keep that promise and she's not too happy about it. The Winter Court and ruler, Queen Mab, is just a little too frosty for her liking. But more than that Queen Mab is a cruel queen with every intention of making Meghan's stay as awful as possible; with the help of Ash's two brothers. As if that wasn't bad enough, now Prince Ash, the guy she thought loved her, wants nothing to do with her and makes no secret of it.

The story really kicks off when the Iron Fey infiltrate the Winter Court leaving casualties behind and stealing the Sceptre of the Seasons (This Sceptre has infinite power to those who control it and is passed between the winter and summer courts at the passing of the seasons). The problem is, nobody believes her; the Iron Fey are not thought to exist by the Winter and Summer Courts. I don't want to give too much away but from this point we see Meghan set off on her most challenging adventure yet to reclaim the Sceptre and prove her honesty.

So who will help her? Well along the way we revisit Grimalkin, the witty and slightly grumpy cat, who I was thrilled to read more about! Additionally, we of course learn about the fate of Robin "Puck" GoodFellow, who after the previous book was left injured and recovering. I really like the characters in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindblowing ending. 10 Dec 2014
By Zed
Format:Kindle Edition
I Absolutely adore the characters, especially Ironhorse; he’s funnier than Grimalkin. I have a theory why Meghan can use glamour and I think it’s because she destroyed / killed the last iron king so perhaps the power has transferred to her? Maybe that was why the goblins (or was it gremlins?) listened to her when she told them to scatter because they were creeping her out. It just makes sense…plus Ironhorse calls her queen at one point, which adds to this theory.

The ending was AMAZING! I don’t want to spoil it but I can’t wait to read book 3. Although Meghan and Ash both took an oath at the end, I doubt they’ll be able to abide by it. There’s no way…

Poor Puck, just when he’s about to get the girl it all goes haywire for him. I was surprised at the turn in his and Meghan’s relationship and kind of annoyed at her for leading him on. She can’t have both guys, make up your mind already! I noticed that although Ash is meant to be in amazing fighter, he seems to get more injured than everyone else put together! Yet, he still ends up being okay in the end (not that I’m complaining, of course).

Grim wasn’t as vocal in this book, but Ironhorse made up for it…I wonder who will provide entertainment in the next book….

Favourite Quotes:

"This isn't a game, Meghan. The s*** is about to hit the fan, and you're right in the middle of it without knowing enough to duck!"

"I couldn't do it alone. I should have listened to you back in Tir Na Nog."
"Yes, you should have," I whispered. "Remember that, so that next time you can just agree with whatever I say and we'll be fine."

I sat up and wiped my eyes, cursing the damned faeries and their eternal war. It seemed there was never enough time. Time to dance, or talk, or laugh, or even mourn the passing of a friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I'd come back from the dead for you." 13 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Iron Daughter was another high fantasy, action filled book. I have given it 4 stars because as much as I enjoyed it there just seems to be something that is keeping it from being 5 stars for me. The characters (for the most part) are written wonderfully and the world building has continued to be detailed and I am looking forward to seeing where this series will be taking me next.

I think my biggest complaint about this book was Meghan. I mentioned in my review for the The Iron King that Meghan has a bit of the whole 'damsel in distress' going on but then she would have moments of courage that would completely redeem herself. But I didn't get so much of the courage in this book and she has seemed to turn into a big 'ol cry baby most of the time.

As Meghan is taken back to be held at the Unseelie Court, Ash clearly explained to her that things were going to be different between them. She must have realized that they are not going to be sharing meals and walking down the halls holding hands... yet when Ash does not come to visit her and must say hurtful things about her in order to show his family he has no feelings toward her she is driven crazy. She starts to think he has used his powers of persuasion to cause her to have feelings for him and that he has never cared for her. She goes as far as to yell 'I love you' to him while his rather evil brother is there. Really Meghan? Are you that blinded to not see that he is having to act like this to protect you? I also feel her feelings for Ash are just a little too much on the side of 'too big, too fast for me. I get that she has feelings for him and this is all good and fine but she is slightly obsessed and really what does she know about him?
