Review of The Iron Daughter

Title: The Iron Daughter
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Iron Fey (2)
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—ironbound 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 stuck 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:

I had high expectations for this book before I started reading it and I wasn't disappointed. I think it's just as good as the Iron King. The Scepter of Seasons has been stolen by the new kind of faery named the Iron Fey and you follow the characters as they try to retrieve it and return it to the rightful owner. 

You start off in the Winter Court where Meghan is staying because of her bargain with Prince Ash. It is icy in temperature and atmosphere.  Meghan feels awful when Prince Ash changes; he becomes cruel and cold.

Meghan cannot return to the summer court and her father (King Oberon) can't free her as she is there of her own free will. When some Iron Fey steal the Scepter of Seasons and murders Sage, one of the princes of the Winter Court, Queen Mab is livid. She accuses Oberon of stealing the Scepter. A war is about to erupt, but, Meghan knows the truth and she is going to do everything she can to stop the war from exploding...

Once again, I loved this book. Julie Kagawa creates a beautiful setting by describing the landscape so well. I love following the characters on their journey and in this book you notice that they start to evolve and change slightly. 
Meghan has some choices to make and questions are still unanswered... The Iron Daughter is an awesome sequel and great follow on from The Iron King. I cannot wait to get my teeth into the The Iron Queen and delve back into the Nevernever.
