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.MY THOUGHTS:
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.
(summary taken from Goodreads)
As much as I loved the first book in this series, The Iron King (read my review here), I loved this one even more!
Julie Kagawa has such a beautiful way of making me fall for her characters, even after I loved them so much already. How much Meghan continues to grow amazes me and Ash is just so swoon-worthy on his own. Their love is pure and strong and heartbreaking, but not one bit cheesy.
But where the first book was slightly repetitive with the amount of times Meghan was captured by gremlins, The Iron Daughter continues its destructive path the entire way through! Everything was original, nothing repeated. The story captures you from the very first line and my eyes were practically glued to the pages until the last one was turned.
All in all, The Iron Daughter was amazing! I don't think that there are very many sequels that I liked better than the first novel, but this was one of them.
