The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey, #2)
Warning!! This is the 2nd book of the Iron Fey series so if you haven't read the 1st don't read this, unless you don't mind spoilers! You can find my review for the 1st book here - The Iron King Review

The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey #2)
By Julie Kagawa 
Published August 1st, 2010 by Harlequin Teen
359 pages

5 stars - Amazing!!

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.

Usually I don't really like the second book in a series because it doesn't have much to it.  But this book was different yet again.  The Iron Daughter is the second book in the Iron Fey series and picks up where the first left off.  I really loved this book as much as I loved the first one.  There was action and romance and suspense.  It did a great job of picking up from the first and going on.  

I don't really want to give away any spoilers so I'm not going to go into too much detail.  There was just so much going on and the book never got boring.  The characters grew even more and they took risks.  We meet some new people, like someone from Meghan's past.  There is a new Iron king, a false king, out to get Meghan as well and the whole group has to go through some challenges just to survive again.  And through all of this Meghan wonders whether she should choose the winter prince, Ash, or her best friend, Puck.  And things get pretty rocky between all of them.  No matter what there is always suspense.  The story is from Meghan's perspective one again and I found that I couldn't put it down.  There are surprises throughout the book and the ending is great.  I'm happy to say that the second book in the Iron Fey series wasn't a disappointment.  I would love to tell you everything that went on and especially the ending but I don't want to ruin the fun for anyone.  If you loved the first book then you'll definitely love this one.
