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.

“The Iron King is a must read!” (New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter)
Julie Kagawa does an epic job on this series and I just love Khristine Hvams narration...She makes the Fey world come to life for me!!!!!
I want to know what happens next...I enjoyed the story, could not stop listening to it. Love the characters and the plot.
I like my audiobooks to be easy reads (listens). And this is exactly what this series is. The narrator does a wonderful job.
Puck, because he's that guy that all girls always want to have as a BFF.
Grim, the cat, was fun to listen to.
These faeries aren't so sweet and innocent.
I love discovering new stories while driving or working in the barn, reading voraciously since I could walk. There is no genre, just magic
I gave it a read as I love the narrator of this book. She is amazing! The story built an entire world rich in detail and depth. Great work and I highly recommend it.
a lot like the Hobbit series and Michelle Sagara's Cast in Sorrow series. Kristine Ham is great
The first chapter captivated my interest and it continued to build
Acupuncture student with a long commute to school who loves quirky horror and sci-fi/fantasy
this is the introduction to an amazing world of Fey and some great characters
I can not compare this story to many others, but it has all the right elements to real me in. It has 2 boys in love with the same girl, danger intrigue and magic. I was not sure about this series at first as this is the 1st book and it was a slow start. the next 2 books in this series left me breathless. I was driving down the freeway listening and crying and laughing and just loving this series more than I can say. Give it a try
she is one of my favorite narrators, she is excellent in this series as she was in the daughter of smoke and bone series and the beautiful creatures series
fey-ries not fairys lolI love that this was emphasized in this series
just read it, I am in my late 30's and still love this series it is not only for young adults
There is something to be said about a narrator than can pull you into a book, do voices, even w animals and keep you on the edge of your seat. This narrator did it for me. I NEVER wish to see a movie of this book if one is made. She made each chapter and scene and character come to life right before my eyes. It played out SO wonderfully in my mind! I'm NOT YA.......I'm a 36 yr old woman w 2 kids under 10. I'm a graphic artist and I have worked hours upon hours listening to this story. I can't wait for the next one. I PRAY it's the same gal reading it. A MUST for anyone looking for a book that will play out better than a movie w it being read from her! AWESOME.....really!
The story is the story. I almost feel like I "kind of knew" what might happen. For me, the most memorable was how it was read to me. The characters EACH had their own voice. I was in LOVE w Grim, the cat's voice. Even the whiny voice of the 4 year old brother. For me, it was how it was read that made this book what it is. Even doing whisper reading (reading from where the audio stops on my Kindle) before bed, I played the pages out w the voices from that I was familiar with, the narrators characters voices! While the story might be YA.....it's HOW it was read that makes you love it....sink into it and get lost in this little Fray World!
Over the MOON amazing. See my other comments. I hope she is paid WELL because she brought to life this story. What a talent one must possess in order to do this. I've heard a lot of audio books but only a few readers, like her, are this good. Really, Really.
Listen to it. Book and story aside....LISTEN to it. Ms. Hvam's does this book SO MUCH JUSTICE!
Everything! From the plot, the characters to the reader. It's a story you can easily get lost in.
The concept, it was really well thought out. The charscters... storyline.
Loved how she did different voices. She got into her chatacters.
It was entertaining and a good story. I like storied about the fey so I found it enjoyable.
Yes, but it is a little long for that.
Love to read!
I don't think this book was as bad as some of the reviews, it is just meant for a much younger reader. An aspect of the book that was both a pro and a con was that there was a lot of action and the characters moved from one emergency to another. It kept the book moving forward, but there was almost too much of it. The characters were pretty unique and each had their own personality, something brought out very well by the narrator.
If I had a teenage daughter, I would recommend the book to her. It was just a little too young for me personally, but I can't fault the author or book because I chose to read a YA story.
I can't take it anymore! I've listened to this as long as possible can. I don't like buying a book and then not finishing it, but I'm not going to waste my time on this book any longer. The fantasy in it doesn't make sense, the main character doesn't use her brain, and the author writes things that are completely illogical. For example, the main girl doesn't recognize the sound of her best friend's voice which she has known sense birth, and first she has to walk a long ways to the bus stop but when the bus drops her off in the same spot, she just walks up her drive way. The author does use good analogies, but that does not make a good book. Fantasy is only good when an author really makes the reader feel like it could be real, which this author did not.
