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.

    "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...

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.
