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.

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Like Twilight with Faeries"

    It's got a decent plot, but it has too much teen angst and pining over forbidden love.

    "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...

    Story
    "Too much teen angst for an adult"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was ok, but the pining teens became tedious.


    Do you think The Iron Daughter needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The plot was fine, it was the teen star-crossed romance that was juvenile.

    "Easy listen"
    Where does The Iron Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is an easy, predictable book, which is why I liked it.


    What other book might you compare The Iron Daughter to and why?

    Any teen fantasy story.


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

    No, you easily could, but I used it as a palate cleanser between for intense books.

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