The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey #2) by Julie Kagawa

7747064Half 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.

Well, this was a pretty good sequel to the Iron King. Although there were times where I felt mildly annoyed by Meghan, but overall, it was a pretty good book. Like the Iron King, there were lots of fey creatures and different worlds and characters to explore. The thing which I really liked about this series so far is how it takes into account the modern world- how mythical feys cannot exist with science's iron fey.

I'll admit, some parts of the book were, in my opinion, rather unnecessary but hey, it's a fairy tale. What kind of fairy tale can you have without a ball or two and a couple of princes/boys/dudes vying for your hand? >.> Good thing there was no jealous that-other-girl-who-tries-making-your-life-miserable type of character.

There's lots of princely fighting, ghastly fighting and a romance between Meghan and her prince- a romance deemed impossible by everyone except Meghan. It's pretty interesting and worth reading. (:
