There was a good amount of action in this book just like with the others except this time there's something iffy going on and Tamani is determined to find out what it is. The chapters alternated views between Laurel and Tamani and I loved that. A peak inside Tam's mind? Yes please! There's still an endless war between David and Tam (and I don't see why Laurel doesn't just get over it and admit that she should be with Tam!) and it gets pretty hot and heavy in this book!
I don't know what to make of Yuki and sometimes I don't even know what to make of Chelsea. The ending of this books leave us with a big huge cliffhanger. And I can not wait to see what happens in the next book!
Sorry this review is a lot shorter than my usual ones, I read this months ago and just now got around to reviewing it. But I did enjoy this addition to the series!(less)

It's been awhile since I read this, so bear with me!
The Iron Queen picks up where The Iron Daughter left off (was anyone else expecting a novella between the two?) and of course, something call's Meghan back to the Nevernever. Yes, ban your daughter who is the only one who can save your world then call her back. Real classy. If I was Meghan I would had been like "HAH!" but no, Meghan is much more caring than I am.
I'll be honest, at first, I wasn't really feeling this installment of the series. I guess it was because there was too much Ash/Meghan and not enough Puck. And when there was a scene with Puck, he was always in a sour mood. Which made me in a sour mood. Kind of weird how that works, right? Also! That scene where Meghan finds out that Puck was "lying" to her this whole time and totally blows up on him? Uncalled for! I wanted to smack her myself. He was protecting you! Why is it so hard for her to see that? No one is after you! Well, besides your boyfriend's twisted brother and the Iron King. Poor Puck, he didn't deserve that!
As always, there was a lot of action. And since there was a lot of action, there would be some training. Meghan and Ash really need to work on their communication skills. Ash's bi-polar emotions gave me a headache. You want her to protect herself, you want to protect her and have her not fight even though you just spent all that time teaching her. I mean, come on man. GET A GRIP! I have to admit, I did like that Ash talked more and showed more emotion. Verified he wasn't a robot. And his proposal (not marriage guys, calm down) was very noble. I don't think Meghan fully understood his intentions and that made me sad for Ash, and made me want to smack Meghan.... again. I have to admit, she did do a lot of growing up in this book and she took charge like we all wanted her to, I should cut her more slack. The girl can't be perfect and she was just thrown into this world. Not to mention she's not even old enough to vote. Oh the pressure!
The ending made me tear. I don't know why, but it just did. Well, close to the ending, if it had ended there it would had been EPIC. I was sad to see Grim go, just like Meg was. And I loved Razor, what a cutie! Glitch wasn't so bad either, in the end. The (real) ending left us hanging for the next book The Iron Knight and I can't wait to see where this one takes us!(less)
