The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The 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 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 powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting 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 Review): Let me just say this: Good sequels are vital to the series being that great, and this one definitely hit the mark. Meghan has come along way from the girl from Louisiana and your average teen girl, a very long way she has come. Already Ash has summoned her to come back the fey world where things have only begun to ramp up once more. (I will try hardest not to give away spoilers on this one) Meghan enters Tir Nag Nog, the Winter Court. Once they enter the Winter Court, just like the icy appearance of Tir Nag Nog, Ash's demeanor quickly changes as well. If you read Winter's Passage, the reasons behind why he did It will make more sense.

She cannot go home because of her choice to go on her own free will. Another reason to be careful when making deals with fey can result in not so good endings.
Nevertheless, The Iron Daughter was a beautifully woven together and had much more action and romance in the second book than in the first. The history between Puck and Ash is very intriguing history and keeps getting intense with every book. The book had ended on a sort of bittersweet, but nice ending. Overall, the book was flat out intensely great and that's why I just had to get The Iron Queen the next day.

My Rating: 5/5
The Plot: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
