*Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

*spoilers* if you haven’t read The Iron King you might want to skip this review. Just know that it was awesome and you should go out and get The Iron King right now!
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, iron-bound 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 alone 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.

My Review:

This is the second novel in The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. There is also a Novella that falls between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter called Winter’s Passage. I have thoroughly enjoyed all three books and would highly recommend them.

In Iron Daughter; Meghan is stuck in Unseelie territory, without hope of escape. Ash has distanced himself from her, and there is a war brewing. Meghan must face her fears and fight for not only her life, but for all of Faery. New and old alliances are formed in Meghan’s fight against the Iron Fey.

The book was full of adventure and humor, and the love story had me glued to the very end. The characters are awesome, just as in the first book. I love Grim! And the world of faery is so beautifully terrible; you hate to see Meghan leave, but dread her being stuck there as well. I’m a sucker for good endings and I was happy with this one. Of course there were a few foreshadowing moments that promise that Meghan’s journey is far from over. I want to see more of Ash’s doppelganger and the rest of the Iron fey.

I am solidly team Ash, but I can 100% understand team Puck, this was a hard one for me to choose sides on. I can’t wait for The Iron Queen!

If you liked; 

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, Need by Carrie Jones, or A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray this series is right up your alley.
