Book Review: The Iron Daughter

The Iron Daughter
Julie Kagawa

July 23rd

Having read The Iron King awhile ago, I keep meaning to come back to book #2 of the Iron Fey series and haven't had time. Until now! What I liked about book one: I loved the characters, I felt connected to them; Robbie/Robin/Puck is funny and fantastic; Meghan is strong and smart. What I didn't like, why is she falling in love with Ash when Robbie is so much the better choice (and I'm pretty sure he loves her back already!). Okay, that's enough recap, here is what I think so far:

The thing about a YA series book is that there tends to be no recap at the beginning to remind me of where we left off, so I actually read the first chapter twice to figure out what was going on and to remind myself who was who. Now, I'm not very far into the book, but Ash has already made her cry. Considering how much I "love" him already, this was not helping his cause any (even if I can assume why he did it). I can't quite feel the danger of the situation yet, but I am sure I will soon. She is a Summer Fey in the Winter Fey castle because she made an oath. At least the girl stands by her word.

I feel a little neglectful. Not because I haven't been posting, but because I haven't been reading :( The book is good though. Poor Meghan with the "Ash drama of it all". Then Ash's brother has to be a giant jerk and give her that truth mushroom that nearly kills her. Glad things like "truth mushrooms" don't exist in real life, just to be on the safe side I don't eat mushrooms.

I'm only on the page 45 (I know, neglectful) and Ash has already been totally mean to Meghan twice ... to the point of breaking her heart. I realize he is a Winter Fey and things might be impossible between them, but he doesn't have to be such a jerk about it.
