The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter
I don't think I have ever been so excited to read a sequel in my life, and I was in no way disappointed.
Meghan Chase's endearing, nail-biting, heart-wrenching adventure will claw its way into your very depths of your soul.
The Iron Daughter is the second book in Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey trilogy. The Iron King introduces Meghan Chase, an average teenager that blends into the background and has no desire to change that. Meghan's mother has kept one significant secret from her; her real father is King Oberon (yes, THAT one, the King of the Summer Fey, Ruler of the Seelie court). Her best, and only friend, Robbie Goodfell, is the legendary Puck; charged by Oberon with the task of keeping Meghan safe and ignorant to her heritage, Robbie reveals the truth after Meghan's little brother Ethan is kidnapped to Faerie, and so the adventure begins...
Between The Iron King and The Iron Daughter, Kagawa also published the novella Winter's Passage, which is a total tease, and portrays Meghan's deliverance to Queen Mab.
The Iron Daughter is an amazing continuation of Meghan's terrifying and beautiful charge, and would be an effective stand-alone book; just enough back-story to hook you, but not too much to bore those of us whom have read the first book. The love triangle is expanded upon and achingly weave's its way through the tale, forcing you to choose sides and change your mind often. The creatures are torn right from the old faerie legends and live true to the characteristics my Irish Grandma warned me of when I was growing up. The ending is bittersweet, unpredictable, and satisfying.
Although I read an e-book ARC, which is not my favorite medium, I have gone back and re-read my favorite parts longing for the adventure to continue. I will buy this book on its release date and can't wait to re-read The Iron King and Winter's Passage immediately followed by the final production of The Iron Daughter.
This series is, without question, my favorite faerie tale. Julie Kagawa is truly gifted at communicating a depth and vitality to this world and the characters loitering within.
