However, I was immediately drawn in to the story and found it to be a quick and very enjoyable read.
By the time the "event" happens in the story I had completely forgotten that it was what the book was about and so I was surprised by it. It was interesting seeing Graylee react to existing every other day and what she had to deal with living in her sister's body. I couldn't stand her sister, so every time Graylee did something she knew Charlene wouldn't like I was happy.
If you enjoy stories of witches I think you'd like this book.

I'm not exactly sure what made me not love it, but if the synopsis sounds intriguing to you or you're looking for a fairy tale retelling you should give it a try....more
Every book in this series is better than the previous one! I loved seeing all the characters I've come to love work together in this book, I love PuckEvery book in this series is better than the previous one! I loved seeing all the characters I've come to love work together in this book, I love Puck but I love Meghan with Ash - think they are perfect together. I can't wait to read the next book, The Iron Knight, though I'm pretty sure it's the last book in the series which makes me sad. Hopefully I will have time very soon to read it, just have to see how it ends. ...more

I don't know if it's because I know more of the charactersI greatly enjoyed reading The Iron King, but The Iron Daughter was so much more enjoyable! I don't know if it's because I know more of the characters and the world, but I was much more invested in the story this time. If you've read the first book you should definitely read this one. Recommended to fans of young adult fantasy.
A more in depth review to come...hopefully....more

The beginning was a little weird for me, as it felt like I had read something very similar before, but besides that it was easy to read and drew me in right away.
There's a little romance in the book, but not too much as it's more about Meghan's journey to rescue her brother. I loved the adventure feel to the story and plan on continuing this series....more
The story was a quick read (thankfully), but had it not been for the fact I had to review this book I would have not continued reading it. First of alThe story was a quick read (thankfully), but had it not been for the fact I had to review this book I would have not continued reading it. First of all let me state that I am a Christian, and as such I found a lot of the references to Heaven and the afterlife in this book to be wrong and some down-right offensive. If this book had not made it very clear that the people being mentioned were the well-known archangels from the Bible, Gabriel and Michael, and the writers of the first four books of the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John - I would have probably overlooked a lot of the things I found to be offensive, because I know that when I read a non-Christian novel that is what may happen. However, when the story goes to great lengths to make you realize that the people being described are the ones I just mentioned, then I find it offensive.
What I liked: -That the part of the story takes place in Ireland. -That the story was a very quick read. -Umm...umm...I can't think of anything else I liked about this book. Sorry!
What I didn't like: -The casual way that Jesus's names is taken in vain and the jokes made about both that and other swearing. Quote: Looking at Gabe, Mike sighs, "I swear - you're worse than they are." "You shouldn't swear," Gabe smirks. "I hear it's frowned upon up here." -The complete and total disregard for the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross to save those who will accept Him as their personal Saviour. Quote: "We're looking at what could be the end. And your partnership is the only thing that may save them all down there. It's up to the two of you." -I don't believe that anything will be better than Heaven, but this quote has Mark saying "If you find the right person and open your heart to him, you'll enjoy a love that will be better than...well...Heaven." Are you kidding me! An emotion with someone on earth will be better than spending the rest of eternity with the Lord? I don't think so! -How the Gospel writers were written as though they were children. Stealing each others things and saying how they were giggling. -The way the angels are more like witches in that they conjure up things with a wave of their hand. -The way that it makes it seem as though angels are capable of creating different species of life. -The way it made it seem as though everyone will get to come back to earth as many times as they want, and then when they are tired of earth they can stay in Heaven. -The way it made it seem as though angels are both male and female and that they have "relationships" with each other. The Bible is very clear on this issue...they don't. -I personally found it very annoying every time one of the angels would say some well known phrase (i.e. "Take the time to smell the roses") and then would say "I hope that catches on some day". This happened A LOT! -There is more, but I can't remember it and I read this book as an ebook so it is very hard to flip through it to jog my memory.
I hate to give books low ratings, because I know that authors put a lot of work into writing them, but when I find parts to be offensive, other parts just not accurate, and the story completely boring I have to give them a low rating. I almost wanted to give the book 1 star, but felt that wouldn't be fair to the author as the writing style was very easy to read. But, I can't give it any higher than a 1 1/2 stars rating. Obviously I wouldn't recommend this book.
