Publisher's Summary

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.

    "KEEP READING !"

    This is an excelent follow up to Book 1. Friends, don't bother w/ Winter's Passage Book 1.5, it only does a copy & paste of the end of Book 1, you don't really learn a whole alot.

    I have enjoyed following Meghen, Puck, the Winter Prince, Grimulkin and Iron Horse though their journey. These characters will surprise you. And Laoninshe, a new character, very cool. Also, you may just learn what happened to someone Meghen knew from her past.

    "Plunged too deep into the teen angst angle"

    I really enjoyed the first book so I picked this one up, but straight off the bat, the second book started following in the footsteps of Twilight love triangles and brooding, overreactive teens who really aren't that interesting. Once the characters start dissolving like that, then the lack of a solidly built world and mediocre plot start sticking out. So the result is that just a little more halfway through, I gave up. I'm not finishing this book or continuing with this series; my time is too valuable.

    Story
    "Technically book 3. Another great Read. Onward!"

    If you like these books I recommend reading my review of book 1, for more references to similar books that might interest you.

    I say this is book three because the author has half versions, or mini books to give you an update between books. It's kind of a cheap ploy to make more money, but they are all worth reading, plus if you get them during an audible discount period they will only cost you $2/each. Just buy them that way and get the books over $10 using your credits.

    In this book Megan starts to come into her own and really starts to understand herself, her prince, and the other fey better just as everything begins to unravel around her. Her family plays a minimal role in this story, her lost memories come into play here too. This book ties in everything you needed to know from book one (so don't try to skip to this book), while bring up it's own new story, characters, and expanding on what you already love about the series.

    Also forgot to mention this in my first review, but I enjoy this narrator. Khristine Hvam has a sweet voice and doesn't try to sound like a man but instead lets the story speak for itself in your mind. I love books with dual narrators that tell the story like a movie with the pictures only in your imagination, but also can equally get into books with a good narrator who just reads with inflection rather than pretending to be every character. That is Khristine Hvam, a good story teller without trying to take over the characters. The only down play I will say is that the producer should have edited out random parts where you hear her breathe in quick, sometimes she does things that pull you into the story but sometimes it's just her catching her breathe at the end of a long paragraph and it could be removed. Regardless great narration.

    If you like book one, continue onward!

    "Nice..."

    I am certainly no teenager, but I have to say that this book keeps me more intrigued then the Twilight series. This was of course a nice sequel to the first book and I enjoyed it very much. So much that as soon as I was done I listened to the third book.

    "Teen read especially for girls, that like true lov"

    I almost stopped listenening to this book early on, because of the "love language". I am not a fan of expressions of undying love and the same trite gushing that happens in any books. I understand deep love and don't need to be reminded of it by describing the physique and characteristics of the loved one over and over. I felt like this book was written by a teen. A teen that has read a lot, and took a little from many books and made it her own. I would not recommend it to anyone, but I didn't hate it. I used to read harlequin romances as a teen and I wouldn't recommend those either. I just don't like books that are gushy. There was a lot of action, and the book hinted at a previous book and a later book, wihich I don't feel interested in reading.

    Story
    "Meghan's adventures and angsty romances continue!"
    What did you like best about The Iron Daughter? What did you like least?

    I like the quippy dialogue with Puck, the condescension from Grimalkin, and the beautiful images are all my favourite parts of this novel. I like Ash and Meghan being together the least. They both seem to get less interesting and a lot more repetitive when they are together or are thinking of being together.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made the love triangle less one sided or I would have done away with the triangle entirely. Ash's overwhelming broodiness and angst is really unappealing.


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Grimalkin, as performed by all three voice actors performing the Iron Fey series: Meghan Chase arcs, is the best character. The voice they chose really emphasizes the qualities of the character himself.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would definitely go and see any movie in the Iron Fey series. It would be a beautiful looking movie, even if it wasn't a fantastic story.


    Any additional comments?

    Meghan continues to be the faultless, and fairly uninteresting Mary-Sue she has been since the last novel.

    "Love it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Iron Daughter to be better than the print version?

    I listen to the audio verson and follow along with the book. Helps me because I don't read that well and listening while following along works for me.


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Khristine, she brings characters to life with her voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but I read it in one weekend.

    "It took me over a week to finish"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Preteens and maybe even teenagers


    What could Julie Kagawa have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    My biggest problem with this series is one second it seems like its for a young audience then the next second we are cursing our fool head off. Pick on or the OTHER! It wasn't a bad book if it was meant to be a children's book but with the bad words I assume that's not the audience it was meant for.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Khristine Hvam?

    Therese Plummer she could of really brought this book to life were as this narrator just wasn't suited for this type of book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Iron Daughter?

    Maybe the one at the prom were the guy is groping the girls but and all the curse words. I have no issue with the cursing but this book would of been way better with out it. It just did not fit in with how childish the book itself seem to be.


    Any additional comments?

    I normally finish a book in 1 day 2 at the most depending on the length, that being said I struggled with the first half of this book for a week. It bored me! It had a few moments that caught my attention but seemed to go faster then they came. The second half of the book I listened to in a day because I told myself I had to get done with this book! ( I do not like to start on another with out finishing what I already started) but I did read 2 other books trying to make myself read/listen to the second half of this one. *sigh*

    The second half was a lot more entertaining! THANK GOD! It did have a very good ending which made me want to actually read the 3rd book which I started seconds after finishing this one. ( So far its a lot better and DANG me for my need to know what happens....I'm too noisy for my own good lol).

    Do not get me wrong this book is good, its just that I started with this writer on a more recent book that I loved! The Immortal Rules ! <<<<so good. So I kind of set myself up for disappointment....this must of been some of her first works so I wasn't expecting the more quirks of a new writer.
