The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)

Goodreads Summary: 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.

Why I Read This Book: I had never read a fey novel before, but I read A Midsummer's Night's Dream in university. I had read some good reviews of this series, so I picked this book up.

Review: I actually really enjoyed this book. As is the norm with paranormal series lately, it did take awhile to get into as the 'world' needed to be explained, but Meghan is likable, and I thought Robbie was cool. The book was exciting, but the "rules" we a little confusing. I'm still not sure I have them all straight. Otherwise, it was great. I liked Kagawa's writing style, she is descriptive while still getting to the point of what she is saying, and I liked all the characters (or didn't like if that was what she wanted!) I can see how this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I liked it and look forward to getting to the next one!
