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.

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.

Amazing Narrorator

I've read this series twice but the audio book is amazing. The narrorator does a great job with all the different characters.

Heroine So Mind Boggingly Stupid

Heroine so mind boggingly stupid you want to reach into the book and beat her to a bloody pulp with a clue bat. Author dropped this baby on its head a couple few times to many. This book should have a giant neon warning label reading: This book is only suitable for very stupid pubescent girls. All others may experience irreparable brain injury!

Definitely YA, but appropriate and creative

Emphasis on young. It's a bit sappy, but it's appropriate for the characters being teenagers. The storyline is very very creative and lives up to expectations for a story literally about fairyland. I will be continuing on to the next book.

Super Disappointing

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The lead character just wouldn't stop crying and moaning about her lost love. I would change that.

What was most disappointing about Julie Kagawa’s story?

It had so much hype! I honestly think it was bad timing. If I had discovered this story when I was in high school, I would have enjoyed it.

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

Khristine Hvam is amazing! I love her performances.
