5 stars - It was amazing!
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
First of all let me say that I have seen this book around and never really thought that it could be interesting. But this time I decided to give it a chance, especially since I had already read another book about the fey. I'm glad to say that I was proven wrong. The Iron King was a really great book and I really love the series. I'm going to be starting the fourth book and will be posting about the other 2 that I have read.
I loved the characters, especially Meghan, Puck and Ash. Oh and Grim as well :). The Iron King had romance, action, suspense and much more. It was a great blend of everything and really made me interested. And to tell you the truth I haven't really been interested in books with just the fey in them. But this book wasn't like the others.
Meghan goes off into the Faery and finds out that she is a princess. Her father is the faery king of the Summer Court. She learns all about the faery world and goes through challenges all with her best friend Puck and the mysterious Winter Prince, Ash. Plus they get help along the way from a magic cat named Grim. They are in search of Meghan's little brother Ethan, who I loved as well. I was really able to connect with the characters. Puck was funny and a great friend and Ash was mysterious and appealing. I just can't stop thinking about how awesome this story was. This series is definitely going on my shelf of favorites. So give it a try if you haven't already. Again, I'll be posting my reviews on the rest of the books and will be starting the 4th one soon. Julie Kagawa did a great job.!
