Description from GoodReads:
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:
Amazing and you should read it.

I guess I'll make the review a little longer but I believe the top covers it. I have always loved the Fae and I've read a couple of good series about them but I think this might be one of the best. Yes, I can tell from the first book. Yes, it is that good.

Iron King just grabs you from the first pages. I've always been scared of changeling and this book made me more paranoid. When I have children I am taking all precautions just in case. I love Meghan Chase from the first pages. She is a strong character that fights for those she loves. I love that, I am tired of characters that are just taken for a ride and have no control over their journey. Meghan makes decision and is mature enough to deal with the consequences.

If you are a follower of my blog you have probably noticed that when I love a book it is usually because it contains a love story. <3 Meghan has two love interest in this book. One is a great friend the other a mystery. I loved both guys and can't wait to read Iron Daughter.

Julie Kagawa created a wondrous world. I recommend this book to any reader that enjoys reading about the Fae or reading paranormal romance. The boys of this series are definitely a great reason to read this series.


  1. Yay, I recently read this too (well, a few weeks ago) and I LOVED it as well! Great review!

  2. Oh my gosh, I just LOVE this series! I'm so glad that you liked it too! You're definitely right when you say that Meghan is such an awesome heroine -- I just adored her!

    LOL I'm the same way with books. I tend to like ones with at least a little bit of romance in them better than ones with none. :)

    Awesome review, Erika!

  3. I've heard that this series just gets better. I can't wait to read the second one.


I always read comments and love hearing about what you think. Hope you enjoyed it!
