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.

    "This was a bit of a let down"

    I am someone who finishes what they start, and I rarely review a book I haven't completed -- mainly in fairness to the author -- because I know that a book is a journey and things can improve in time. Unfortunately, I just wasn't able to get through this one. I guess I fell for the reviews without considering that this might be a YA only offering, though why they would like it beyond me. The fairytale atmosphere so import to this kind of story, felt flat and lacked fantasy or magic or something very basic and necessary. The reader had very little in the way of substance to work with, but she did her best. Maybe I'll save it for my niece when she gets older -- like 10 or 12. She may like it.

    For a better story of this type, try Patricia McKillips "Od Magic," or Kristine Kathryn Rauch's "The Fey" series, or Juliet Marillier's "Wildwood Dancing." All are far better books.

    Story
    "Narrator is great, message to teen girls is poor"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not, unless they were fantasy fanatics.


    Would you recommend The Iron Daughter to your friends? Why or why not?

    Same as above.


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Could you see The Iron Daughter being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see it, and I could see it being very popular.


    Any additional comments?

    Only a few thoughts for teen fiction authors. Please please please create strong female characters. And I don't mean girls whose only strength lies in how well they can wield a weapon or who can defy authority without thought. I mean girls who don't fall in love with "ice princes" or vampires--with older men who abuse them. Instead, make them beautiful and admirable from the inside out. Make them sexy, yes, but independent. Make them resourceful and sure, romantic, but not dumb asses. Megan had potential. But Julie Kagawa failed her, epically.

    "YA book"

    Once again this is a young adult sereis, very good storyline, great narration by khristine Hvam, she bonds you to the characters, makes you see them as they are meant to be seen, I loved the friendship between Robin Goodfellow/Puck and Megan, the two banter back and forth like brother and sister. Her knight Ash, his beauty breaktaking, his change amazing... a very good read...

    Very good story, great reader. A little melodramatic at times but that's normal for teenagers so I let it pass. ;)

    "So Good."

    I love this series. It's an original blend of urban and traditional fantasy. It has such interesting ideas about the Fey world and what it means to be involved in it. Megan is a fantastic character and it is just so well written. The narration is incredible. Distinct and realistic voices for each character, emotion and real acting in each line, she embodies each character in their own way, really bringing their stories to life.

    I highly recommend this book.

    "Really good"

    The only thing I found at fault with the story is the cheesy romance; in a way it keeps the story real since we are talking about teenage love. It is a story full of emotions and action. Megan Chase is a teenage girl willing to fight for whom and what she believes. Courage, loyalty and fierce convictions move this girl to act and become more than everyone believes she is.

    "Ok so what is the message?????"

    There are some spoilers here. (Just a few)

    Ok so don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book. Well...... really I enjoyed the second half of this book. The beginning in the Unseelie court with the boy of her dreams, her "true love" treating Meghan like dirt beneath his feet Just didn't sit right with me. After all that was done I was happy. All the characters were great, both old and new. I found myself hating the one I should hate and wanting more from the others. Plus who doesn't love a good old fashioned love triangle? Looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book/adventure.

    Khristine Hvam did a fabulous job once again narrating. She brings the characters to life and draws the listener in to the story. I was very entertained with her performance.

    "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.
