The Iron King (Iron Fey, #1)

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Iron Fey #1

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.

My Review:

The Iron King was a very enjoyable book. I've read many books about faeries but this is the first to give a history of how faeries have come to be. I loved the idea of our fast paced technological world giving rise to a new type of fey. This was a great read. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because I felt like the characters were lacking at times. I thought there could have been more decriptions and... development. I just felt like there was something missing there. Overall though, I really liked this book!

4/5 Stars
