The Iron King
Meghan Chase is different than other girls. She has faery blood. When her little brother is kidnapped and dragged into the dangerous, terrifying world of faeries, witches, satyrs and Winter Princes, Meghan makes up her mind to rescue him. There's just one problem. She might die.
Meghan Chase is your everyday sarcastic, grumbling, stubborn teenager. She has a stepfather who doesn't seem to know she exists, her mother is scatterbrained and her life at high school is summed up in one word: miserable. However, when her brother gets kidnapped by faeries - or more specifically, a villain called the Iron King - she and her best friend Puck must go and rescue him. Between the romance, adventure and sarcasm, you're in for an exciting ride.
Pros and Cons
This is entertainment at its best. Everybody likes to read about the impossible, therefore it's up to the Iron King's author, Julie Kagawa, to make it possible. She does a good job. It's exciting, the characters are relatable - unless you're trying to relate to an ogre, that is - and there's even a Prince thrown into the mix.
The Bottom Line
This is a fun read. It's 363 pages of adventure that will leave you waiting for the next book.
There are three: The Iron King, The Iron King and the Iron Daughter.
