The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

This is 2nd book from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. The story continues from The Iron King. After Meghan Chase has defeated the Iron fey, as promised she follows Prince Ash back to Winter Court. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, Meghan is a prisoner to the Winter Queen Mab.

During her stay in Winter Court, one very important item has been stolen by the iron fey. Since no one except Meghan and Ash has seen iron fey before, no one believes them. Queen Mab blames the Summer Court on this issue and declares a war to them.

Knowing the threat of the iron fey to the faeries world, Meghan realizes that she must get back the stolen item from them. Together with Robbie, Grimalkin and an unexpected ally, they begin their journey through the faery and human worlds to find the stolen item.

The starting is rather slow but pick up towards the end. Meghan is torn between Robbie and Ash. One is her best friend and one is her enemy, but both risk their life to protect her. The ending of this book sets the stage for the third book in the series.

I personally prefer Book 1 The Iron King over this book. If you are the impatient type, you can skip this book 2 and straightaway jump to book 3. I actually read this book last. Will post the review of Book 3 The Iron Queen tomorrow.

I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Sorry friend... I have tried many times(after installed the Adobe Digital Edition), still can't view the Iron Queen wor~! My hubby tried to view in his company but eventually fail too, guess I have to wait for the book to release itself lor!>_<

I have to agree that the 1st book is darn good, lol! I haven't go through the 2nd book, but it seems the storyline is very long (winding)!;D

Again, thanks for sharing and wishing you a great day ahead!

Alice - Book 2 is not very long. But a slow start. Go register Net Gallery and request Iron Queen from there. :)
