The Iron King by Julie Kagawa Review

Publication Date: February 1, 2010
Publisher:
Harlequin Teen
Format: Paperback
Page Count: 363 pages
Source: Bought
Series: The Iron Fey #1


Synopsis:
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.


 My Review:

Meghan Chase always felt slightly off in her life, ever since her father disappeared when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.When a dark stranger begins watching her, her best friend becomes strangely protective of her and now her brother has gone missing. When they got into The Nevernever they were being hunted by Puck’s former best friend now enemy, Prince Ash of the Unseelie Court (a.k.a the HOT Prince of the Winter Court).

Meghan in my opinion is "weak" and not much of a strong lead. I mean of course she's new to everything that's happening but I think she's afraid and that seems kinda annoying. Other than that, I really loved the supporting characters. Grimalkin might be annoying but he is such a cat and surprisingly really helpful! I also loved the two love interests for Meghan. I preferred to see more of Ash and the relationship grow between Meghan and him but still, this IS the first book in the series. Ash is a great character, but why do I ALWAYS fall for the forbidden guys or the guys who are such an ass. He's always following orders and listening to what others want but you can tell that deep down he wants to be free and doing what he wants.

Overall, The Iron King is an AWESOME book and I can't wait to read the second book and the novella.
