Book Review The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter Author: Julie Kagawa
Released: August 2010
Publisher: Harlequin
Pages: 304
Target Age: Young Adult
Summary from Barnes & Noble

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.

It's an exciting day my followers! Today is my very first 5 butterfly review! Obviously I loved this book!! The Iron Daughter was even better than The Iron King. Kagawa's faery realm was already built in The Iron King so this book moved a bit faster than the first. Some of my favorite characters returned, and I got to fall in LOVE with a sort of new character and a completely new character. I know my reviews are sometimes vague but I hate to give anything away. My favorite part of reading a book is not knowing what is going to happen or who will help/hinder the main character with whatever journey they are on. Meghan is stronger and more fierce in this book. She refuses to back down even when everyone tells her she should. I know she did this before but that was different, she had to save her brother. This time she does what has to be done just because she knows it's the right thing to do. One of the best books I've read this year, The Iron Daughter is a book you don't want to miss. Note: Make sure you read The Iron King first or you won't know what the heck is going on. Winter's Passage was an excellent novella however you don't HAVE to read it to read the second book. You should though cuz it's good.


  1. Great! I have a whole stack of TBR books on my shelf and I was having a problem trying to figure out which book to read first. All of them look like great reads but now I think I will start with The Iron Daughter because like you I also loved The Iron King.

  2. Thanks for the review and for stopping by my blog! I just bought the first part.


Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing what you think!
