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.

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...

Like Twilight with Faeries

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

Good world-building, suspense and lovely romance.

The first novel in this series, "The Iron King" was a four star read for me – a very good rating, meaning I enjoyed the novel enough to seek out the sequels. The continuation, "The Iron Daughter" was equally riveting and easy to follow.

While the fantasy world and characters, and the suspense that built up was satisfying and impressive, I hung out for the romance. And I was satisfied there, too. The story is about characters in their late teens, so there was no sex - rather, it was the emotions that powered the romance. The love was expressed by sacrifice and devotion. It was refreshing and I enjoyed it a lot. That's a big statement for me because the bulk of my usual romance reading involves stories with sexy times. That I didn't miss it here, means the build up of emotion was excellent.

I recommend "The Iron Daughter" as a lovely companion to "The Iron King."

I also recommend the novella "The Winter’s Passage" which links the two novels, The Iron King and The Iron Daughter.

If you only read these two main novels you’ll experience what feels like a complete story. However, the further adventures and romance of the same protagonists continue in the next novel, "The Iron Queen." I look forward to it.

The Audible version is perfectly narrated by Khristine Hvam so I highly recommend it.

Much better

I know the first book was important for you to understand the second. The best thing about the first was that it hooks you in in the end. This book was worlds better! Loved it!

Puck

I felt like I really didn’t like Megan in this story I hated the way she treated Puck. I got it she didn’t love him as much as Ash but she definitely lead him on and he did everything for her not my favorite type of character

Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance as it should be.

In the second novel length instalment of Julie Kagawa's The Iron Fey series, we once more delve into the rich world of the Fey. Kagawa continues to do an amazing job of bringing the Fey to life. Her Fey are believable and true to what Fey are supposed to be.

Another great series by Julie Kagawa

I read the Talon series and absolutely loved it. So I decided to give the Iron Fey series a shot. Another win for Julie Kagawa. Have already recommended it to several friends.
