Friends, I need you to bear with me and forgive me for not exactly remembering every little detail of The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa, but as I made a New Year’s Resolution to catch up on Netgalley reviews, I thought hey self why not review a book that you finished in 2010 that has not only been kicking it on your net galley list, but also on your Need to Review list for OVER A YEAR. Yes, so, yay procrastination.
Okay so The Iron Daughter is the second book in the Iron Fey series. In order to not be spoiled, you should just stop here and go and read my Iron King review instead. Y’all, The Iron Daughter was AWESOME, at least what I remember. Okay, so Meghan Chase, the main character is part fey part human and she is pretty much stuck in the fairy world. ALSO her powers aren’t working and she is pretty sure that Ash (not a fan personally) has left her. AND WAR IS COMING. What is a girl to do? Try to get out of Fairy, yo.
And so Meghan has to trust AN ENEMY. Named IRON HORSE. WHO TALKS IN ALL CAPS. WHOM I AM SO IN LURVE WITH. Seriously, Iron Horse was THE BEST and my favorite character of the book, actually surpassing Puck and Grimalkin.
And also. Queen Mab was a crazy witch as per usual. Like, why you such a hater Mab? I mean, okay we know why she dislikes Meghan, but still. I don’t like her.
And there is more Ash/Puck time and of course I know the direction the story is going in and that Puck is probably firmly in the friend zone, but I am totally Team Puck.
Kagawa has written a riveting love triangle, and guys I hate love triangles but you better believe I will continue to come back for it as long as Iron Fey books are being written. Also, this year, 2012 I will totally read The Iron Queen and The Iron Knight.If you want a romantic series with an awesome heroine and a kick ass cat and a talking IRON HORSE and fairies, then you should get on this series ASAP, yo.
