The Iron King - A Review

The Iron King - Julie Kagawa (own)

Product Details


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.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book! I was quickly drug into Meghan's story and even more so when she entered Nevernever. So many interesting and unique characters we are shown through out the book.

Meghan's brother has been kidnapped by someone in the Nevernever, leaving behind a ruthless, nasty changeling in his place. Meghan decides she must go find him once she knows what has happened to him. I don't think she realized just what she was getting herself into. One there she's chased, captured, escaped, chased some more.

As with all great reads, there are great male characters. I loved both Puck and Ash for different reasons and I hope to get to know them better later on.

It's hard to describe how much I enjoyed this book without giving away too much of the story. I can say however that I can't wait to continue on with the series. There are so many possibilities on directions it can take and I can't wait to find out which one it takes.

I read this as a group book chat with some twitter friends. What a great book to have a group to chat with. I have to say chatting with friends while reading this made this book even better. I loved all the discussions we had during it.

Oh, I'm working on my review as well. :) I'm hoping to get it up this weekend.

But I think chatting while reading made the book all that much better for me as well! I find that many times it does bring the books out better for me. :)

It was great chatting with you on it and with the others as well. We need to keep this up with the series. ;) If everyone can do so. :)

I'm going to have to get started on this series one of these days. I feel so left out of the loop. Thanks for the review.
