Review of The Iron King

Title: The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Iron Fey (1)


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.
She could never have guessed the truth. Meghan is the daughter of a faery king and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will have to choose between a normal life and her magical destiny - and between her best friend and a darkly dangerous prince.
It's time for Meghan to enter the faery world... 
My Review:
absolutely loved this book! I enjoyed it right from page 1 up until page 363. It's been a while since I enjoyed a book this much!
I haven't found many 'faery' books that I have enjoyed. Meghan Chase is normal teenager. She doesn't fit in at school. She has lived a pretty normal life. However on her 16th birthday, things change. She starts to see things that shouldn't be there and soon she realises why she's never felt like she belonged; it's because she doesn't. She's sure she is being watched and on her birthday things come to light. Her little brother, Ethan, is replaced by a violent changeling. 
Meghan soon discovers that her brother has been taken to the land of Fey and that she must enter Faeryland to rescue him. She also discovers that her best friend Robbie is Fey and that he has been sent to look after her by order of King Oberon of the the Unseelie Court.
Meghan enters Nevernever and encounters many monsters and strange creatures. She is also hunted by the Winter Prince, Ash! She travels through forests and along the way she picks up lots of enemies! However, she never tires in her quest to find her brother. Her journey is one of peril and danger. 
The Iron King is hard to review as I don't want to give too much away. There were many twists and turns along the way and I can't wait to get my teeth into the next book (The Iron Daughter). 
I liked Meghan as a character, she was strong and likeable. I loved Ash, he seemed like such a dark and devious Prince which I loved! (I always like the bad guys in books). Robbie was comical and Grimalkin was sarcastic (like me).
You grow to love the characters when reading the book. I loved the plot line and I raced to finish the book. Cannot wait to get the second book (it's on its way as I type). I'd highly recommend; it has become one of my favourite books!
