The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The Iron King (Iron Fey, #1)The Iron King (Iron Fey #1)
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages: 363
Rating: 4 Stars!
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.

But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.~Goodreads

This book is jam packed with a ton of action and adventure! Every page leads to new information and that made it a face paced thrill. This book also picks up a creepy vibe once Meghan arrives in Nevernever, almost like a twisted Alice in Wonderland, which made it even more fascinating! The fights that go on in this book were nothing short of hard-core! I think that The Iron King was a great start for the series and an awesome set up for the more important fates Meghan will encounter. I personally find fey like super confusing and i thought they were all like Tinkerbell fairies, but this book proved me dead wrong. 

With action, adventure and a dash of romance i think this book has it all!

  1. Hey Brooke! So glad to see good reviews on this series. I just recently picked up this book and really have been looking forward to getting into it. Can't wait to sit down and start it soon! I'm a HUGE fan of Melissa Marr's "Wicked Lovely" series, and now that it's over, I was looking for another fey series that could measure up to it. hehe. I hope I like it. I also heard that some of the fey characters in this one are Shakespeare inspired. If that's true, well bonus points to the author! :D
    If you like fey AND dystopian, I highly recommend "Bones of Faerie" by Janni Lee Simner. :)
    Have a great weekend! :)
